There's a very good blog entry about the vocal here:
And here it is in all its glory:
It had a pretty decent b-side as well:
The lyrics are taken from R. Lee Sharpe's poem, 'A Bag Of Tools', which dates from some time in the 1940s.
Isn't it strange how princes and kings,
and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
and common people, like you and me,
are builders for eternity?
Each is given a list of rules;
a shapeless mass; a bag of tools.
And each must fashion, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block, or a Stepping-Stone.
