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: safe journey
’22, I remember the storm
It rose like a phantom
And pulled in the sea
Home and boats
Crushed and destroyed
Hundreds lost
Like my family

Safe journey, safe journey
Take the low road
Where the bandits don’t fly
Safe journey, safe journey
And I will see you, by and by

Before I’m done there’ll be a party
With dancing and singing
And the ale will flow
I pray you’ll be here with me
To celebrate, before I go

Safe journey, safe journey,
Take the black horse
And ride like the wind
Safe journey, Safe journey
And I will see you soon, my friend

Safe journey, safe journey
Take the low road
Where the bandits don’t fly
Safe journey, safe journey
And I will see you, by and by

Track Name: older than me
(Twit chorus)

The planets spin around in space
They’ve nothing else to do
And they don’t care a jotlet for
The likes of me and you
Our cosmic insignificance
Is legendary stuff
And when the tough gets going
We all play blind man’s buff

I am older than yesterday
Younger than I will be
I am older than yesterday
Now I’m older than me

(Twit chorus)

I am older than yesterday
Younger than I will be
I am older than yesterday
Now I’m older than me

I am older than yesterday
Older than I was then
I am older than yesterday
Not the youngest or oldest of men

This song has quite a lot of words
And now here come some more
Although I must say I am finding
Writing them a chore
When I set off I thought I had
A clear idea to do
But now I just want mango lassi
And a vindaloo

Oh there!
There goes the fourth wall again
Oh dear!
There goes the fourth wall again
To all of my listening friends

(Twit chorus)

I am older than yesterday
Younger than I will be
I am older than yesterday
Now I’m older than me

I am older than yesterday
Older than I was then
I am older than yesterday
Not the youngest or oldest of men

(Fantastic Frank organ bit)

I am older than yesterday
Younger than I will be
I am older than yesterday
Now I’m older than me
Now I’m older than me
Now I’m older than me

(Twit chorus)

Give it to ‘em straight, Moriarty!

Track Name: pom-pom face
Great big bag of marshmallows
To toast round the fire later
Yeah

Can we sing ‘Jingle Bells’?
I know, I know it’s August
But I’d like to sing ‘Jingle Bells’

The short version? Yeah
The short version
Can – can-
Can you play the trombone
While we do it?

Now I know that distance isn’t real
It’s just the way you feel
Now I know that distance isn’t real
It’s just the way you feel

Look, look at her
Look, look
Look.
‘Pom-pom Face’
Look.
Look at ‘Pom-pom Face’.
Look, look

Pom-pom Face

I vote
I vote that Pom-pom Face
Is our new leader
All vote for Pom-pom Face
Seconded? Seconded.
Thirded?
All vote for Pom-pom Face

Now I know that distance isn’t real
It’s just the way you feel
Now I know that distance isn’t real
It’s just the way you feel

Track Name: julie’s gone to france
Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France

Julie had this big idea
Selling drugs and drinking beer
But the cops were onto her
Dearie dearie dearie dear

Julie thought: ‘I’ll get away’
But she’d no passport
Made for France with her boyfriend
Hiding in his car boot

Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France
She’s gone
Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France
She’s gone

Julie’s gone to France

(What shall we do with her mail?)

Julie’s boyfriend is a cad
He’s old enough to be her granddad
Now they’ve made it down to Spain
Running from the English rain

Interpol are on their trail
It won’t be long now
Interpol are closing in
It won’t be long now

Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France
She’s gone
Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France
She’s gone

Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France
She’s gone
Julie’s gone to France
Julie’s gone to France
She’s gone

Gone - gone

Singing in a karaoke bar - gone

Put her body on the street
Put her body on the street

Gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone

Track Name: little cloud
I’ve got a little cloud and I pull it around
With a piece of rope that my cousin found
And I’m very proud I’m allowed my own little cloud

When it gets hot I tug my cloud
Til some rain comes pouring down
The searing heat don’t bother me at all

Since the ice caps got so small
Things are tough
Since the ice caps got so small
Some people get so moody

I guess I’m lucky my dad is king
He can do about anything
That is how come I’ve got my own cloud

Bodyguards to guard my cloud
Taking my cloud is not allowed
Some folks tried and some folks all got shot at

Since the ice caps got so small
Things are strange
Since the ice caps got so small
People acting very strange

A lot of the folks on Earth are dead
The water went right over their heads
They should have learned to swim
Instead of moaning

They’ve only themselves to blame
Silly men
Bet they do it all again
Because they’re very dim

I’ve got a little cloud and I pull it around
With a piece of rope that my cousin found
I’m very proud I’ve got my own little cloud
