OK, this has always been credited to John Carter and Tim Gilbert, but
according to the SAC article in _Goldmine_ #359 John Carter wrote lyrics
to SAC (and future Lynyrd Skynyrd) guitarist Ed King's instrumental
track, 'The Happy Whistler'; Tim Gilbert had written other songs with
John Carter before (most notably the Rainy Daze 'That Acapulco Gold',
which hit #70 nationwide before program directors found out what
'Acapulco Gold' was) and was apparently co-credited by mistake.

                       "Incense and Peppermints"
                        (Ed King - John Carter)

Verse 1:

	 Em          A          Em           C
	Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
	 Em          A          Em         C
	Dead kings, many things I can't define
	Em             A           Em           C
	   Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
	Em           A                Em       C
	Incense and peppermints, the color of time

Chorus:

	Em   Ebm         Dm        A
	Who cares  what games we choose
	 Em       Ebm       Dm         A
	Little to win, but nothing to lose

	Incense and peppermints, meaningless nouns
	Turn on, tune in, turn your eyes around

Verse 3:

	To divide this cockeyed world in two
	Throw your pride to one side, it's the least you can do
	Beatniks and politics, nothing is new
	A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view
