PAROLES & TRADUCTIONS
01 - How To Explain

When a room becomes an altar
And what beast that must exist
It flies with music from our lips
And steals a kiss and blows it
Out into the mist
Where castles stand on cliffs
And cobbled streets they wind and drift
And moods are made and set but shift
This place where skies are low
And birds are big

We went to sleep in day
And woke again the same day
We have learned to cheat the time
And find the hours
That the clocks cannot define
As I looked up from that stage
I felt the thing that had been made
And how it raged
And how it raged

How to explain?
Something makes me howl
And shiver to the core
Ah outside if it was raining
Then inside there’d be a storm
We’ve got a pair of hands for climbing
And a pair of knees to spring
And a pair of balls for strength

And a pair of lungs to sing
And these simple chords
That says: music is the language of us all

To write these songs is to be written
Ah the chorus always knows
What is in store?
And what is more the thing that sings us
Is the thing that makes us roar?

I felt that beast? Kisso my neck
We clapped our hands
And heard them spread
There was a trumpet and a call
A pack of Spaniards screamed for more
Music is the language of us all
Music is the language of us all
Music is the language of us all
Music is the language of us all

I find it hard to speak emotional
Cos these things are the things that
Can’t be said
And when it’s struck it strikes
The memory from our heads
Once I wrote to play’s
To be immortal for a night
And despite the unknown hours
Something happens
When the light turns out the lights
Then we fade and yawn
To music that’s the language of us all

Quand une pièce se change en autel
Une telle énergie ça doit exister
Elle s’envole de nos lèvres en musique
Puis vole et souffle un baiser
Au loin dans la brume
Où les châteaux se tiennent sur les falaises
Où les pavés des rues qui serpentent s'amoncèlent 
Où l’ambiance se fait et change
Cet endroit où le ciel est bas
Et les oiseaux sont grands

Nous sommes venus pour dormir le jour
Et nous réveiller ce  même jour
Nous avons appris à tricher avec le temps
Et trouver les heures
Que les horloges ne peuvent définir
Lorsque je levai les yeux de la scène
Je ressentais ce qui avait été fait
Et à quel point la fête faisait rage
Et à quel point la fête faisait rage

Comment l’expliquer ?
Quelque chose me fait hurler
Et trembler jusqu’à la moelle
Ah dehors s’il pleuvait
Alors à l’intérieur il y aurait une tempête
On a une paire de mains pour grimper
Et une paire de genoux pour bondir
Et une paire de boules pour la force

Et une paire de poumons pour chanter
Et ces simples accords
Qui disent : la musique est un langage universel

Ecrire ces chansons est notre destin
Et le cœur sait toujours
Ce que l’avenir nous réserve
Et que doit il nous réserver d’autre que ce qui
nous fait chanter
Est-ce ce qui nous fait rugir ?
Je sentais cette énergie embrasser mon cou
Nous frappions dans nos mains
Et nous entendions leur bruit se propager
Il y avait une trompette, et un cri
Une troupe d’Espagnols qui criait pour en avoir plus
la musique est un langage universel
la musique est notre langage à tous
la musique est un langage universel
la musique est notre langage à tous

Je trouve ça dur de parler des émotions
Car ces choses là sont des choses qui
Ne peuvent pas être dites
Et quand ça nous vient à l’esprit, ça ravive
La mémoire dans nos têtes
Une fois j’ai écrit, jouer c’est
Pour être immortel le temps d’une nuit
Et en dépit des heures inconnues
Quelque chose se passe
Quand la lumière éteint les lumières
Nous  palissons et baillons
Pour la musique qui est un langage universel

06 - One, Four,Five

Listen doctor I have pain
That grows inside me
Shelf me please
I just can’t ease the pain
I need some drugs to help
Ah pollution fills my lungs
And convolution fills my mind
Ah my legs do ache
I contemplate
That living’s less than fine
My spine does tingle
When I think of being
Freed from this curse
But what is worse I feel
Life is a bubble
Blown until its burst
Oh doctor I am desperate
To get rid of this feeling
Oh doctor I am desperate
For some good soul healing

The doctor turned and gave a grin
And reached into his bag
But instead of an injection
Got a record with a tag
That said listen to this daily
With hip shaking and such things
Then he puts the record in
Grabs a mic and starts to sing
You need some

One four five
To make you high to make you high
To make you high to make you high
When heaven falling from the sky
To make you high to make you high

Doctor I am feeling better
What was that you sang?
Did you write it or recite it
Or just steal it from a band
Ah my bones are feeling stronger
And my spirit’s feeling fresh
Ah that dose of 145 has put the life
Back in my breath
Yes yes yes? The doctor said
Then he sat me down and says
Young man doesn’t think I wrote
These chords they’re written in
Your brain?
And when you hear them
There’s a shakedown that begins within
The mind
Cos these three chords make people
Feeling better all the time ah
They keep repeating
Like a scratch on a CD
But it’s quality cos these three harmonies
Breed positivity
Protecting against insanity
Of modern insecurities
Believe me when I tell you
All you need is to be hearing all that

One four five
To make you high to make you high
To make you high to make you high
When they said what and you said why
To make you high to make you high

The doctor turned and gave a grin
And reached into his bag
But instead of an injection
Got a record with a tag
That said listen to this daily
With hip shaking and such things
Then he puts the record in
Grabs a mic and starts to sing
You need some

One four five
To make you high to make you high
When you could not count to pi
When you’re told you can’t fly
To make you high to make you high

Times like these you need some
One four five.... hhhuuummnn

11 - The Crowd

Lord unchain my hands
Let me sing inside the crowded trams
Let me dance among the traffic jams
We’re going to sleep
On the St Kilda sands

Lord unbind my feet
Let me mingle with the good people
We meet
Water rising up into the street
Unbind my feet

The apparition of these faces in
The crowd;
Petals on a wet black bough"
Ezra Pound found the formula
Our houses are rectangular
But life is curved not angular
So when things start to strangular
Remember
Rain still falls on the halls of power
New babies being born every hour
And the eagle keeps wa

CHORUS

On the train I refrain from sitting with head and shoulders bowed
They told me time is of the essence
No wandering allowed
But then I saw a pretty girl
Whose features stood out in the crowd?
Went ten minutes past my stop waiting for her to look around?
I'm just another clown kicking around in Melbourne town
Cooling out, relaxing watching the
World go round
So if you ever have the time
And you want to go drink some wine
I'd rather greet you with a smile
Than greet you with a frown...

Lord unchain my hands
Let me sing inside the crowded trams
Let me dance among the traffic jams
We’re going to sleep
On the St Kilda sands

Lord unbind my feet
Let me mingle with the good people
We meet
Water rising up into the street
Unbind my feet

02 - Days Like These

To the gods in the sky
There’s one thing you can do
You can send us some sun
And we'll play you this tune
Because sitting in our room
Lying down with a scoob
And the sunshine
Through our window

Its days like these
That makes us happy
Like a puppy getting lucky
With Lassie hassle-free
Hours passing by
With the beat one two
Said its days like these kicking back
Just doing what we do

Number one I'd find some
Loving in the sun
With someone that can make me
Growl and hum say hmmm...
A boom boom shak
And the beat that she throw at me
Knocking me flat

Number two
I'd cruise where the grass is smooth
And the sound of the sea
Is a dreamy melody
Snooze all afternoon
Till the night time wake me
Cos shakedown soon

Number three
I'd be dancing like a monkey up a tree
Find sweet simplicity
By kissing my honey
Get funky like Bond
When he's played by Connery
And get crafty
Like Don Corleone

Four
Watching Oliver jam a little more
Remember the night when I saw
What I never never never seen before
Lavender wrestling a rich wild boar
CHORUS

HARRY'S NIGHT TIME RHYME
And dirty hands
I like them see
They make the music that we play
Sound oh so sweet
And my mother always made me eat broccoli
And now look at me
I’m as strong as can be
So put some spice in my sauce
Honey in my tea
An ace up my sleeve
And a slinky plan b
And most importantly
My mad family
They named me lucky
And for that I'll sing about
Days like these

07 - The Rhythm

And for all of the sweet loving that
I have received
In the sun in the rain
By the moon by the sea
There is one time that I’m thinking of
One time where one woman
Did knock me off my feet
And my knees were shaking
And my jaw was dropping
And my eyes were squinting
And my smile was growing
And my pants were bulging
And my hands were sweating
And my chest was beating
So I cry? Excuse me,
What is the secret to your song??

Cause when you’re walking along
When you’re walking along?

Your legs are a melody my hands
Would like to play
And your hips are a note
That does take me away
And your face and your eyes and your hair
And your waist and your smile
Drive me to distraction
She turned and she gave the evil eye
?why thank you? She said
Then she sighs? Ah there’s one thing
I think you failed to mention??
What?? I said then she said
It’s the rhythm you forgot?
And right then I knew what was what
And she snuck to my lips
And she kissed them
Said? Young man
I’ll show you some rhythm?

And she’ll show you some rhythm

And since then ha
The rhythm’s been running through my veins
In my thoughts in my eyes
In my head it’s insane
It’s the thing that does drive me
To scream
On the street when I think of some
Places it’s taken me
I feel horny when I thinking of some of that rhythm in my mind
What she gave what she gives to me?
All of the time
Say a little bit of sweet loving in your day
All my friends know it keeps the
Bad thoughts away
So sing with your hips my baby
When you’re dancing to this tune
And when this tune is through
We’ll sneak to some place
And continue to?
Say sings with your hips my baby
When you’re dancing to this tune
And when this tune is through
We’ll sneak to some place and
Continue to?
She said I’ll show you some rhythm

And she’ll show you some rhythm

Avec tout le tendre amour que
J’ai reçu
Sous le soleil ou sous la pluie
Par la lune ou par la mer
Il existe un temps auquel je pense
Le temps où une femme
Qui me faisait tomber à terre
Et mes genoux se secouaient
Et ma mâchoire tombait
Et mes yeux louchaient
Et mon sourire grandissait
Et mon pantalon se gonflait
Et mes mains transpiraient
Et mon cœur battait
Ainsi je criai « Excusez-moi,
Quel est le secret de ta chanson ? »

Parc’que quand tu marchez le long
Quand tu marchez le long…

Tes jambes sont une mélodie que mes mains
Voudraient jouer
Et tes hanches sont une note
Qui me fait perdre la tête
Et ton visage et tes yeux et tes cheveux
Et ta taille et ton sourire
Me rendent fou
Elle se retourna et me lança un regard de braise
« Tiens, merci ! » dit-elle
Puis elle soupira « Ah, il y a quelque chose
Je pense, que vous avez manqué de mentionner... »
Quoi ? » dis-je et elle répondit :
« C’est le rythme que vous avez oublié »
Aussitôt je sus ce que c’était
Et elle s’approcha de mes lèvres
Et elle les embrassa
Et dit « Jeune homme,
Je vais te montrer ce qu’est le rythme »

Et elle te montrera ce qu’est le rythme

Et depuis ce Ah
Le rythme est entré dans mes veines
Dans mes pensées dans mon regard
Dans ma tête, c’est fou
C’est ce qui m’amène
A hurler
Dans la rue quand je pense à certains
Endroits, ça me plait
Je suis excité quand je pense
à certains de ces rythmes dans ma tête
Tout le temps
Apporte un peu d’amour dans ma journée
Tous mes amis savent que ça entraîne
Les mauvaises pensées au loin
Ainsi chante avec tes hanches mon amour
Quand tu danses sur cet air
Et quand cet air sera fini
Nous irons à quelque endroit
Et continuerons de ?
Parle, chante avec tes hanches mon amour
Quand tu danses sur cet air
Et quand cet air sera fini
Nous irons à quelque endroit
Et continuerons de ?
Elle dit : “Je vais te montrer ce qu’est le rythme »

Et elle te montrera ce qu’est le rythme

12 - Manifesto

We believe
In the grass in the trees
We support
Living life cause life is short
We uphold
Sky of blue sun of gold
We maintain
On sunny days all sadness and pain be relieved
We believe
The breeze blows the leaves in the gypsy king's court
We support
Food and wine song and thought and when the night gets cold
We uphold
The following rules that I'll sing
To you all
We believe in melody
And harmony
And all things sweet
We sing a yum-a-yum chum
To the moon and the sun
And the rumble of the drums
And the big fat beat
We believe in the ace up the sleeve
And we shine our gold teeth
At the cats in the alleys
A flame on a match
That the wind can't catch
And when the bad guys attack
The empire strikes back

03 - The Lost Song

I had nine lives but I lost all of them
And I've been searching in the night
And I've been searching in the rain
I tried to find them
But they disappeared
They walked away they dressed in black
They left my side and all I say
Is that I wasted time
When I looked for them
For now I know that things gone past
Are never to be found again
I had nine lives
But lost all of them.
I had a plan

But never finished it
And I've been searching for the thought
And I've been searching in a haze
I try all days
To remember it
But now the blueprint in my mind has gone
My mind forgot the colour of direction
And my eyes they see the hands
That could have built
That could have constructed
The empire in my mind
The empire
I'll never find
I had a plan
But that was where it ended.

J'avais neuf vies mais je les ai toutes perdues
Et j'ai cherché dans la nuit
Et j'ai cherché sous la pluie
J’ai essayé de les retrouver 
Mais elles ont disparues
Elles se sont éloignées et se sont habillées de noir
Elles m’ont quitté et tout ce que je peux dire
Est que j'ai gaspillé mon temps 
A les chercher 
Ainsi je sais que les choses du passé
Ne doivent jamais être retrouvées
J’avais neuf vies,
Mais je les ai toutes perdues 
J’avais un plan

mais ne l'ai jamais fini 
et j'ai cherché dans mes pensées 
et j'ai cherché dans la brume
J’essaye chaque jour
De me le rappeler 
Mais à présent l’empreinte dans mon esprit est partie 
mon esprit a oublié la direction à suivre
et mes yeux voient les mains
qui pourrait avoir construit 
qui pourrait avoir édifié
l'empire dans mon esprit
l'empire
Que je n’ai jamais retrouvé
J’avais un plan
Mais c’est là que tout s’arrête.

08 - The Wine Song

Song and melodies change and change
And sway
But they still stay the same
The songs that we sung when the dark days come
Are the songs that we sung when we chased them away?
If I ever found a pot of gold
I'd buy bottles untold of the nectar of the vines
I'm going to die with a twinkle in my eye
Because I sung songs spun stories loved laughed and drank wine

Tomorrow is another day
The cats are out to play, to play
That old rusty spaceship wants to sail
Into the Milky Way again
On a river of red red wine

Run...
(Let’s have some)
Fun...
(We’ll)
Drink...
(A toast to the)
Sun...

In summer the bushfires rage and rage
And rage
On such beautiful days
And we fight them with water that runs through the cracks
Water we're desperately trying to save
So I'll just live on wine and water my vines
And sleep on the wind with the fires right behind
And sing on the beaches and dance through the night
Oh we'll cry 'pass the wine, pass the wine, and pass the wine'

Run...
(Let’s have some)
Fun...
(We’ll)
Drink...
(A toast to the)
Sun...

Oh what a beautiful day today!
Today’s a day to celebrate
Grab your bucket, grab your spade
We’re heading down to Half Moon Bay
I saw a plane go into a cloud
I'm drunk I'm happy I'm singing and loud
Two o'clock in the arvo, but hey that's allowed...
I'm having a good time and of that I am proud

13 - All That Talking

And when it happens it’s like
Honey and pain
Horns in the rain
Misty seas and mysteries
A dog with no name
It’s that time again
Not sure if I’m sleeping
But the vision’s as clear
As fog on the pier
Someone fishing aimlessly
A thought’s an idea
A sound is an ear
And gods with none believing
Being chased by the lamb
A knife in its hand
Looked down from that mountain
Saw the moon get a tan
On the beach with no sand
Something came and something ran
To make up my mind
Is it bleak or it fine?
She looked a little doubtful
Smirked and said it’s divine
To light with no lime
Sometimes
Oh it’s too late I can’t stop
Moving my mouth
I’ll shush but I’ll shout
Something’s got a hold of me
Those words coming out
Like froth on a stout
Dreamboat’s sailing into
Stormy weather I see
Salty debris
Cows and tigers jumping at some
Mad dignity
But passionately we’ll be
Oh finding
Ways without words
To sing and to purr
Loving without declarations
Stuttered and slurred
Elephants blurred
Nerves resisting urges serve
To speak with no sight
A bat taking flight
Only to find tooth marks
In that sex dynamite
My girl’s got a bite
That's right

04 - The Chariot

This is a song that came upon me
One night
When the news it had been telling me
About one more war and one more fight
And 'aeh' I sighed but then
I thought about my friends
Then I wrote this declaration
Just in case the world end

Our guns
We shot them in the things we said
Ah we didn't need any bullets
Cos we rely on some words instead
Kill someone in argument
Outwit them with our brains
And we'd kill ourselves laughing
At the funny things we'd say

And bombs
We had them saved for special times
When the crew would call a shakedown
We break down a party landmine
Women that so sexy
They explode us with their looks
Ah we blowing up some speakers
Jumping round till the ground shook

And missiles
They were the road trips that we launched
T-t-tripping across this island
Starting missions at the break of dawn
Yawn and smile say
‘What direction shall we take?’

‘Somewhere where it warm and wet’
This be the route we'd always take and

Our weapons were our instruments
Made from timber and steel
We never yielded to conformity
But stood like kings
In a chariot that's riding on a
Record wheel

And our air force flying
When the Frisbee in the sky
Have a session while we're smoking
Now we're feeling extra high
And we'd sneak into a car park
With the skaties on our back
And we're flying down the levels howling
'On the attack now on the attack'

And battles
They happened in these dancehalls
See we'd rather fight with music
Choosing one the rhythm war
Battle at these shakedowns
And we battle at these gigs
We do battle in our bedrooms
Made some sweet love to the beat

Then our allies grew
Wherever we would roam
See whenever we're together
Any stranger feel at home
In a way we are an army
But this army not destruct
No instead we're doing simple things
Good loving find it runs amuck

This be a declaration
Written about my friends
It’s engraved into this song
So they know I'm not forgetting them
See maybe if the world contained
More people like these
Then the news would not be telling me
About all that warfare endlessly and

Our weapons were our instruments
Made from timber and steel
We never yielded to conformity
But stood like kings
In a chariot that's riding on
A record wheel

C'est une chanson qui se heurta à moi
une nuit
où les infos m'avaient parlé
encore d’une guerre et encore d’un combat
et 'haa' soupirais-je lorsque
je pensai à mes amis
alors j'écrivis cette déclaration
juste au cas où suivrait la fin du monde

Nos flingues
nous les avons tués par nos paroles
oh nous n'avons eu besoin d'aucune balle
car nous comptons plutôt sur quelques mots
tuer quelqu'un dans l'argument
les rouler grâce à notre intelligence
et nous nous tuerons nous-même en riant
aux bêtises que nous dirons

Et bombes
nous les avons réservées pour des temps spéciaux
quand l'équipage réclamera un dernier essai
nous exploserons en une fête souterraine 
les femmes sont si sexy
qu’elle nous enflamment de leurs regards
oh nous ferons exploser les amplis
sautant autour jusqu’à ce que le sol tremble

Et missiles
ils étaient les messagers que nous lancions  
voyageant à travers cette île
engageant les missions au lever du jour
soupire et sourire disent
« quelle direction prendrons-nous ? »

« Quelque part où il fait chaud et humide »
« c'est la route que toujours nous suivrons et

Nos armes étaient nos instruments
fait de bois et d'acier
nous n’avons jamais cedé à la conformité,
mais debout comme des rois
dans un char nous glissons sur un
vinyl

Et notre envol militaire
lorsque le frisbee dans le ciel
s’enregistre tandis que nous fumons
maintenant on plane
et nous nous glissons dans un parking
avec les planches derrière nous
et nous redescendons les niveaux hurlant 
« à l'attaque maintenant, à l'attaque »

Et batailles
elles se sont déroulées dans ces soirées
on préfère combattre avec la musique
choisissant une guerre de rythme
bataille pendant ce dernier essai
et nous luttons à ces concerts
nous luttons dans nos chambres
à faire l’amour sur ce rythme

Nos alliés ont grandi
partout où nous errions
à chaque fois que nous sommes ensemble
tout le monde se sent chez soi
d’une certaine façon nous sommes une armée
mais cette armée ne détruit pas
non, au lieu de cela nous faisons des choses simples
la découverte de l’amour ça rend fou

Ceci est une déclaration
écrite pour mes amis
elle est gravée dans cette chanson
ils savent donc que je ne les oublie pas
peut-être que si le monde contenait
plus de personnes comme eux
alors les infos ne me parleraient pas
de toute cette guerre continuelle et 

Nos armes étaient nos instruments
fait de bois et d'acier
nous n’avons jamais cedé à la conformité,
mais debout comme des rois
dans un char nous glissons sur un
vinyl.

09 - Nothing

Yesterday
The sky looked sweet
When we dropped
A big bomb at our feet
And sometime soon
We all might zoom
To space and continue
With another zoo

Work and pace
For paper face
Spend it wisely
And keep it safe
Because the human race
Is a non-stop race
With too many trials
But no real case

Something about this second
Something about this hour
Take away the money
Then the time becomes the power
A moment just to swim
And to shower and to sing
And to brighten and to dim
And to sleep and to wander in

Nothing
Oh sweet nothing
Today we're doing nothing at all
Yesterday
I climbed a hill
Then cycle down speedy
On a great big wheel
Feeling ill
Laboured still
Grinding and stressing
In that giant mill

Drove a car
Stop and start
Round and round in circles
Never got too far
Running barefoot
On the hot hot tar
Cause if you stop
Then you burn
Then your feet get scars

Something about this instance
Something about this minute
Striving for the future
But don't realise that we're in it
A moment just to float
To ponder and to dote
To dry and to soak
And to take a little toke of that

Nothing
Oh sweet nothing
Today we're doing nothing at all

 
05 - Hello

Walking down the street
With some evil in my eye
And some thoughts in my head
That was making me feel high
On my head was a hoodi
In my ears was some bass
Was walking by my dog
When I saw that sexy face
Come towards me
With a little cheeky smile
If she was a phone
I'd pick her up and dial
The fire brigade
Or zero zero zero
She stopped me in my tracks
And I said? Mmm hchello hchello...?

I was sleeping in the sand
With some dreams in my head
That was causing an extension
To the towel and my bed
And the waves were rolling
Like the curves on those legs
Of a sweet beach bella
With that centrefold spread
In the midst of the slumber
I heard some footsteps creeping
And I woke to discover
The woman I'd been dreaming
She knelt down beside
Said 'can I share your pillow?'
I rolled over and I said
Well hchello hchello...?
Some like money making
Some like cars
And some like the houses
With the rooftop spas
And some like to gossip
About some rich sugar daddies
But me and my friends
We like the golden brown honeys
And some like watching people
Living on TV
That’s a little strange
If you're asking me
Cos I like to eat and laugh
And **** and play down low
These are the things I know
Well hchello hchello...

Welcome to this night
Welcome to this song
Welcome to these rhymes
That be going on and on
Welcome to the empire
And the funky empire tunes
But most of all welcome
To the bella in this room...
Well hchello hchello

Marchant le long des rues
Avec quelque chose de démoniaque dans les yeux
Et des pensées en tête
Qui me font me sentir défoncé
Sur ma tête il y avait une capuche
Dans mes oreilles un peu de basse
Je marchais avec mon chien
Quand je vis cette silhouette sexy
Venir jusqu’à moi
Avec un petit sourire provocateur
Si c’était un téléphone
Je le décrocherais et composerais
Le numéro des pompiers
Ou le zéro zéro zéro
Elle se mit sur mon chemin
Et dit : « Hmm hello, hello… »

Je dormais sur le sable
Avec des rêves en tête
Qui  provoquèrent le prolongement
De ma serviette, et mon lit
Et les vagues roulaient
Comme les courbes des jambes
De cette superbe beauté
Tirée du poster central qui s’ouvre
A l’intérieur de mes songes
J’entendis des bruits de pas s’approcher
Et je me réveillai pour découvrir
La femme dont je rêvais
Elle s’agenouilla à côté de moi
Et dit : « je peux partager votre oreiller ? »
Je roulai sur le côté et dis :
« well, hello, hello… »
Certains aiment s’enrichir
Certains aiment les voitures
D’autres les maisons
Avec un spa sur le haut du toit
Et d’autres aiment cancaner
Sur quelques patrons plein aux as
Mais mes amis et moi
On préfère les poupées à la peau dorée
Certains aiment regarder les gens
Qui vivent à la télé
C’est un peu bizarre
Si tu me demandes mon avis
Car j’aime manger et rire
Et … et minimiser la dépression
Ce sont les choses que je connais
Well, hello, hello…

Bienvenue en cette nuit
Bienvenue dans cette chanson
Bienvenue dans ces rimes
Qui continueront et continueront
Bienvenue dans l’empire
l’empire funky du son
mais par-dessus tout bienvenue
aux belles dans la salle
well, hello, hello….

10 - Beanni

His name was Beannie
Say where you been Beanni
I saw you on your skateboard
But I never saw your face
Just saw your beanie
- Beanni

Her name was Fly Girl
Say where you been Fly Girl
I seen you shake your mmm-boobie
But I never saw your face
Just saw your fly sunglasses
In the night
And in the day

One day that Beanni
Was cruising down the street
On his skateboard
And his Beanni eyes did look and see
That fine freaky Fly Girl
And that Fly Girl who was dancing
Like only Fly Girl could
Did notice one cruisy Beanni
Flying right to where she stood

And then that Fly Girl was
A’scream and laughing at the same time
And till that Beanni
Did fly and fall and crash into her side
And both of them did fall
And roll around on their arses
But then his beanie fell off
And so did her round glasses
Beanni reached down
And picked up Fly Girl's glasses
From the ground
And Fly Girl did grab Beanni's
Beanie that she found
And she gave him back his beanie
Said 'I like you with your beanie on'
And he did say 'your big black glasses
Look so sexy on'

They got together
Forever and ever after that
And had some little Beanni Fly Girl
And Fly Girl Beanni boys
Gave them glasses for their eyes
And Beanni beanies for their heads
And now the Beanni family's dancing
Till the day they're dead
