The Pointed Man - Narration - Harry Nilsson

Finally, the two travelers reached what
Appeared to be the entrance to the Pointless Forest.
There was a huge stony barrier with
A small sign at its base which read "
THIS WAY".
Once on the other side of the barrier,
Oblio and Arrow had their first encounter with the
Pointless Man or the Pointed Man depending upon your point of view.
You see, the Pointless Man did have a point.
In fact, he had hundreds of them,
All pointing in different directions.
But as he so quickly pointed out A point in
Every direction is the same as no point at all.
And, speaking of points,
I don't know if you've ever been to a Pointless Forest but a forest
Is a forest and one of the first things Oblio and Arrow noticed about
The Pointless Forest was that all the leaves on
All the trees had points and all the trees had points.
In fact, even the branches of all the trees pointed in different
Directions, which seemed a little strange for a Pointless Forest.
And when the Pointed Man disappeared Oblio and Arrow were left
Standing alone wondering what to do next when suddenly,
They were aware of a strange sound coming in from the north.
And when they looked up there was a
Giant swarm of bees headed straight for them.
So, to seek cover they jumped inside a hollow log.
But when the bees attacked the log was jarred loose and it tumbled
Down a steep hill and careened and crashed
Finally into the base of a most unusual rock pile...
In fact, the Rock Man.
And the Rock Man said, "
Say, what's happening with you boys?
It looks like you're pretty shook up, been goofing with the bees"?
And Oblio told the Rock Man that they were banished and
Asked him whether or not this was the Pointless Forest.
And the Rock Man said, "
Say, baby, there's nothing pointless about this gig.
The thing is you see what you want to see
And you hear what you want to hear - dig.
Did you ever see Paris?" - Oblio said, " No". "
Did you ever see New Dehli?" Oblio said "
No".
Well that's it - you see what you want to see and you hear what you
Want to hear", said the Rock Man and with that the Rock Man
Fell soundly asleep leaving Oblio and Arrow once again all alone.
So they continued on through the Pointless Forest until suddenly,
Arrow, who had been running a few yards ahead of
Oblio, disappeared into a hole, the point of no return.
