    November stole the warmth and dimmed the lights, so I kept busy, busy, busy: 30 days, 30 new tracks, eye shine

    I hope you shine a little too...

about

bushytunes Christmas Island

Once upon a time there was a crazy idea: to create, record and upload a musical track every day for a year. And the idea floated round and round the planet, looking for a place to call home. After a long time of searching and wishing and watching, the idea chose to make a nest in the brain of a bushy fellow, coming to his aid and guiding him out of the doldrums, back to a magical pathway... ... more

Track Name: wait til your father gets home
Mother did her level best
But I put her to the test
I was such a naughty child
Being crazy, running wild

And she had this hollow threat
Says it to this day I bet
Something that would strike fear
Into the heart of nobody at all

And she’d say:
‘Just wait til your father gets home
Just wait til your father gets home
Just wait til your father gets home
Just wait til your father gets home’

I don’t think she understood
I knew Dad had gone for good
He went off with Auntie Joan
Left me and Mum alone
Now he’s doing chiropody in Dumfries

Wait til your father gets home
Wait til your father gets home
Wait til your father gets home
Wait til your father gets home...

(Thoughts and reflections)

Wait til your father gets home...

It’ll be a long wait
It’ll be a cold day in Hell before
Daddy comes home, Mummy...
Track Name: how long is a piece of string
How long is a piece of string?
How long is a life?
How long is the longest day?
How sharp is your knife?
Have you ever seen the place
Camels go to cry?
Penny for your thoughts, my dear
Penny for the guy

How long til the water’s here?
We all need to drink
How long til the water’s here?
Getting hard to think
Sentinels and camels
Lookup at the sky
Sentinels and camels
Lookup at the sky

How long is a piece of string?
How long is a life?
How long is the longest day?
How sharp is your knife?
Have you ever seen the place
Camels go to cry?
Penny for your thoughts, my dear
Penny for the guy

piece of string?
a life?
the longest day?
your knife?
the place
to cry?
my dear
the guy

piece of string?
a life?
the longest day?
your knife?
the place
to cry?

Track Name: nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all

It’s looking so pretty here
Even the birds are dressed up
Like geisha girls from Venus
Or maybe even Neptune
Do they have geisha girls near Uranus?
Ha ha ha ha ha...
What a great joke
‘Cos I’m a great joke bloke

This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all

I don’t like it in the words
It’s scary as it can be
But I’m waking up
Waking up to from else’s dream
Come on, show me what you’re made of
Show me what you’re made of
Woo-hoo, woo-hoo
Na na na na...

This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all

If I ruled the world
Every day would be Tuesday

This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all
This is a song and it’s nothing at all...

Track Name: oh mother
First came Amy – she broke my heart
Married for a month and then
The judge gave her my house and my car

Oh dear, I just want a normal life
Oh dear, I just want a normal wife

Then there was Belinda
I caught her with my friend
He was wearing a great big nappy
I just don’t understand

Oh Mother, everything you said was true
Oh Mother, I ‘m sorry that I doubted you
Oh Mother, what’s a boy supposed to do?
Oh Mother, I ‘m sorry that I doubted you

When I was a little boy
My mum said: ‘You cannot trust women
Women are the scourge of men’
I said: ‘Aren’t you a woman?’
And she said: ‘ No, I’m your mother
So get that straight
I’m the only woman
Who won’t treat you like dirt

Oh Mother, everything you said was true
Oh Mother, I ‘m sorry that I doubted you

Oh Mother, my life is a total mess
Because of women, you were right, I confess

Oh Mother, what’s a boy supposed to do?
Oh Mother, what’s a boy supposed to do?
Oh Mother, everything you said was true
Oh Mother, I ‘m sorry that I doubted you
Track Name: i make prosthetics
I’ve got a job which is very unusual
You could guess all day
You’ll never guess what I do
If you listen, I’m feeling generous
I’m gonna share my news with you, yeah

I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics

I make noses, I make ears
I make jawbones, sometimes teeth
I make foreheads, I make eyes
I make eyebrows, I make cheeks, yes

I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics

My customers suffer from disfigurements
I can help them in their lives, that makes sense

There’s nothing like it, oh, this feeling
When we help someone, there’s nothing like this
To see them go out, confident and happy
Can’t believe it, I’m filled with bliss
When I started I thought:
‘This is rather an odd thing to do?’
I didn’t know if I would stick at it

I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
I make spare human bits
I make fake body bits
I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
And there’s nothing quite like this

Hope your life goes easily
That you won’t need someone like me
But if do and you need some bits
I’ll do my best to make sure they fit, yeah

I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics
I make prosthetics

Track Name: double glazing
Gran was telling me about her childhood
When she was a little girl, the house she lived in
Didn’t have no heating, didn’t have much of anything
But she says that they were always happy

Now we’ve all got double glazing
Now we’ve all got double glazing

Gran said maybe it was cold
But no-one seemed to notice
Wrap up warm and wear a jumper
And get the eiderdown and make some tea
And have something nice to eat
And think of lovely things

Now we’ve all got double glazing
Now we’ve all got double glazing

[I’m heated, sealed in
I never know discomfort
I never know what’s going on
Behind my double glazing]

Now we’ve all got double glazing
Now we’ve all got
N-ow we’ve all got
Now we’ve all got double glazing

My gran does not like double glazing
My gran does not like central heating

(Was it better then?
If she thinks so, then it must be so
It must be so...)
