GIMME GOOD PRESENTS

Its much better to give than to receive.
I want to give you habits for enlightened living.
Its better to believe than to deceive,
And I believe in giving you the gift of giving.
Gimme good presents 'cos I've been good.
Gimme good presents you know you should.
Please! There! I said please so hear my prayer.
Gimme good presents to show you care.
Please! Mummy!
Please! Noggin!
Gimme Good presents cos I've been good!

The WAY OF THE WHALE SONG


So goodbye whale.
You must go
out to sea,
into the blue
where you belong.
Oh actually whale.
before you go
out to sea,
we must ask you,
we must ask you to show us the way of the whale song
We wish we could sing what you sang as you swam, trawling playfully, into the song of the sea.
Flashes of lightning are snorting out of her nose.
From the might of her thrashing tale, boiling hot water flows.
And low she breaches! And low she breaches! (etc)
throws up her mega monster belly
and reaches, flipper first, to the sky.
Then SMACK! Oooo!
She flips a mega monster belly flop
back on to the broken ocean skin(nn) below.
That smells of weed fish and sea weed and fish wee (1x)
That tastes of sandfish and fishy sand and just sand, (2x)

CLING CLANG CLONG


"Cling!" Sings the barrel on her massive nose they
"Clang!" and jingle jangle as she goes.
'Thar she blows!' Nudged a long by the furlong long Leviathan,
to the role of the ocean swing. “Clong" singing
