Shape of Things to Come - Kingston Trio

Completely Round is the perfect pearl the oyster manufactures
Completely round is the steering wheel that leads to compound fractures
completely round is the golden fruit that hangs in the yahh-orange tree
Yes the circle shape is quite renown, but sad to say it can be found in the low down dirty runaround that my true love gave to me, yes my true love gave to me

Completely square is the velvet box he said my ring would be in
Completely square is the envelope he said farwell to me in
Completely square was the hankychief I flourished constantly
as I dries my eyse of the tears I shed
and blows my nose till it turns bright red
for a perfect square is my true loves head
He will not marry me, no! he will not marry me

Rectangular is the hotel door my true love tried to sneak through
Rectangular is the transum hole through which I had to peak through
Rectangular is the hotel room I entered angrily
Now rectangular is the wooden box
where lies my love neath the golden fox
they say he died of the chicken pox...
In part I must agree, one chick to many had he

Triangular is the piece of pie I eat to ease my sorrow
Triangular is the hatchet blade, I plan to hide tomorrow
triangular the relationship that now has ceased to be
and triangular is the garment thin, that fastens on with a safety pin
to a prize I had no wish to win...

It's a lasting memory, that my true love gave to me
