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: tell those nitwits
Just before you make a wish
Keep your eyes shut tight
Try it now and
Do it with all your might

If you wish for what you need
Then it might come true
Wishing for piffle and nonsense
Will not do, oh no

Let me tell you ‘bout
Let me tell you ‘bout
Let me tell you ‘bout
How I see it

We are here on Mother Earth
And she is spinning round
And she is packed with tiny miracles
That we have found
And if you want to see some more
You’d better make a sound
Tell those nitwits
They are not doing what she needs

Though it seems incredible
I don’t think they care
As long as what they’re doing
Doesn’t affect them
S’posed to be looking after things
On our behalf
Truly these are amongst
The worst of men

Let me tell you ‘bout
Let me tell you ‘bout
Let me tell you ‘bout
How I see it

We are here on Mother Earth
And she is spinning round
And she is packed with tiny miracles
That we have found
And if you want to see some more
You’d better make a sound
Tell those nitwits
They are not doing what she needs

We are here on Mother Earth
And she is spinning round
And she is packed with tiny miracles
That we have found
And if you want to see some more
You’d better make a sound
And tell those nitwits
They are not doing what she needs
Tell those nitwits
They are not doing what she needs
And tell those nitwits
They are not doing what she needs
Track Name: jimmy the grin
Jimmy the Grin
Doesn’t like the skin he’s in, no
So he pretends
To have big adventures
We don’t make a fuss
Jimmy’s one of us

Jimmy the Grin
Doesn’t like the skin he’s in, no
I can blame his mum
‘Cos she used to say:
‘Jimmy, you’re special’
We don’t make a fuss
Jimmy’s one of us

Jimmy had girl
Way back when
She disappeared into the night
Jimmy had a girl
He was so happy then
Since that time he hasn’t been right

Jimmy the Grin
Doesn’t like the skin he’s in, no
I can blame his dad
Drunken Tony
He was bad news
Gave us all the blues
I remember that night
I still hear Drunken Tony shouting
We don’t make a fuss
Jimmy’s one of us

Jimmy had a job
Putting little things in boxes
Jimmy was doing ok
Jimmy was slow
Too slow for his bosses
So they sent him home
But they still pay

We don’t make a fuss
Jimmy’s one of us
As long as we’re around
He’ll be safe and sound
We don’t make a fuss
Jimmy’s one of us

Track Name: crazy daisy’s living off the land
Crazy Daisy’s living off the land
She lives off things she finds
Things others leave behind
Crazy Daisy’s living off the land
She doesn’t need a lot
She’s quite content with what she’s got
Though it might be hard to understand
Crazy Daisy’s living off the land

Crazy Daisy comes from somewhere else
There’s something in her eyes
Something that’s young and wise
Crazy Daisy comes from somewhere else
And though it sounds absurd
She never says a word
Crazy Daisy comes from somewhere else
Crazy Daisy’s coming to our house

Meeting her has turned our lives around
And we can tell you about it
We were lost, but now we’re safe and found
And we can tell you about it
Tell you about it
Can’t do without it

Crazy Daisy’s staying at our place
Just for a little while
Because we like her style
Crazy Daisy’s staying at our place
Now we feel everything
We feel her dance and sing
Crazy Daisy’s lighting up our place
Crazy Daisy and her smiling face

Meeting her has turned our lives around
And we can tell you about it
We were lost, but now we’re safe and found
And we can tell you about it
Tell you about it
Can’t do without it

Crazy Daisy’s local fame has spread
And the authorities
Are feeling ill-at-ease
Crazy Daisy’s put things in our heads
And now we have to know
Question the status quo
They came after Crazy Daisy’s head
And sent the Joybreakers
With guns for her
But she just smiled
And their guns turned into
Candy floss and bubble gum and wine

And everyone had a chew and a slurp
And a pink sugar high
And we all felt fine

Track Name: what have we done to earn this?
How about the weather?
Crazy weather? We’ve got snow in July
Everything is upside down
Everything is upside down

What have we done to earn this?
What have we done to earn this?

Floods and droughts
Fires and hurricanes
We’ve done something wrong
This is pay us back

And I’m
I’m not saying there’s a god but
If he’s there watching us, and he’s
Sent this stuff to get us out of here
What chance do we have?
What chance do we have?

What have we done to earn this?
What have we done to earn this?

I never thought of myself as a praying man
But I said that I ought to try it
Maybe it’s part of the plan?

And I’m,
I’m not saying there’s a god but
If there is, he’s laughing
And he’s thinking: ‘this will get them out!’
What can we do to redeem ourselves?
To redeem ourselves

I’m going to take Theology
I need faith

What have we done to earn this?
What have we done to earn this?

What have we done to earn this?
What have we done to earn this?

What have we done to earn this?
What have we done to earn this?
