The Trial & Banishment - Harry Nilsson

At the end of the game Oblio had beaten the Counts kid two out of three.
And when the Count heard of his sons disgraceful defeat at the hands of this pointless Oblio he was outraged.
So he went to the King and reminded him of the law of the land which was that 'all things and all people in the Land of Point must have one'.
And since Oblio didn't have one, he was in violation of that law which called for his banishment.
Now the King, who was a good King, was painfully aware of his duty . . .
Which was to convene the tribunal.
And upon the Count's insistance, that's exactly what he did.
And when the tribunal reviewed the case, they could only arrive at one conclusion - Oblio had no point and was therefore guilty of being in violation of the law.
And so it was that he and Arrow ...
For Arrow was found guilty of complicity ...
Be banished from the Land of Point to the Pointless Forest.
The next day Oblio's mother and father and all the town's people gathered to bid a sad farewell to Oblio and Arrow.
Now everyone thought that banishment to the Pointless Forest was a bit excessive but the law was the law and the people were all good law abiding citizens and - well, it was the first time anything like this had ever happened and no one knew quite whatelse to do.
So Oblio and Arrow set off for the Pointless Forest . . .
Where all things are pointless and nothing is pointed.
And by the way, the distance between the Land of Point and the Pointless Forest is directly proportional to the amount of time it takes . . .
To sing a song.
