Fish Mountain, I’d climb up your top You’re pretty all the time Fish Mountain, I’d climb up your top
2.
Six of us ride All through the night All my friends they ride at night All my friends they ride at night Two of us bite One lost his sight The fourth one drives with serious light The others are both the hungry type I heard that you wanna ride with us Well I'd advise you baby to take the other bus Won’t be climbing Fish Mountain in these times We're too busy Just by the way you brush, you think that you’re the bomb You always say you're sorry but can't admit you’re wrong The powder on your chin wears out before it’s gone, The steps you’re taking are bound to bring you down And there we go again, you wanna ride with us i'd advise you baby to take the other bus Won’t be climbing Fish Mountain in these times We're too busy

Summer time is here again, Miles of legs and skirts in the wind You're falling in love every step that you take You're falling in love no need to talk just lay My mind is a rabbit My body is a hare My mind is a rabbit and I caught that bad habit of lovin’ you And you and you Summer time is at its peak Get undressed and hop the beat Heating up we’re all midday suns I know it I know it we’re gonna shake some buns Summer time is all over the place Fuzzy bunnies out on chase Everyone’s a junkie for a kiss and a hug But can you blame a rabbit for a hole he’s dug
4.
Kangaroo 02:42 video
Everybody’s jumping up and down the street, just like kangaroos David, Kenny, Mike and Steve are jamming at the Bald Raccoon Along comes Tia with her dancing shoes Hopping ‘round the chicken coop All happily living their lives just like kangaroos Everyone’s bouncing to the beat, drinking at the local zoo A tall, a short and a boogie one, hitting on the new girl Lola was a kinky ape-man dressed in a woman suit She’s alright living her life Boxing like a kangaroo All good kangaroos they go to heaven But the naughty ones they go nowhere Les bons kangourous chanteront au ciel Mais les paresseux ils iront où? Where do they go? I was born in a sac ready to attack, as a fighter a dancer with a ruby mac Found a job where I can deliver lunch As a jabber, a hook or spinning punch Don’t pretend you’re the one to beat, you can’t even chew I’m happy to see you have found yourself grazing as a kangaroo
5.
As far as I recall Your footsteps ringing down the hall The moment has come for you to shine Leave your war paint and your high heels behind You don’t know now Might you be surprised By the dawning Of something greater How I love your differences They’re an obvious fact I love the way you dance The way you laugh I love you all the time I love you black As far as I recall Your footsteps ringing down the hall And your colour shining through my eyes The weather’s pretty nice outside Now you got a little older Your mind is liberated from the past For some it ain’t like that How I love your differences They’re an obvious fact I love the way you dance The way you laugh I love you everywhere I love you black
6.
I remember butterflies in different colours and sizes Whistling in the way of a great tornado spinning love You taught me how to climb up a rope When I should've been aware of holes in the ground You don't say much anymore You're always on a cloud somewhere How long till you forget I left you for a thrill Does happiness depend on fate? Is the present make-believe? Looking for you night and day Collecting tears inside Maybe you're a concept Residing in my mind
7.
Cosmetic 04:52
You’re pretty but you tend to forget Instead of lovin’ you buy yourself a dress But now these times are gone, the worst has got your best ‘Scuse my love but now your head’s a mess Now you’re looking back You we’re looking fine Praise the lord that plastic’s not a crime Cease, All you got to do is cease When I look at your lips and your cheeks all I see is grease And a cheekbone here And a cheekbone there Next thing you know you got cheekbones in your hair
8.
Plate Love 02:01
What will you choose and how will you plate it? Don’t let ‘em catch you outta breath Wash your plate Hold your breath Plate Love You love her thumbs but you don’t know how to say it Don’t let ‘em catch you outta breath Wash your plate Kiss your dog Tuck your shirt Don’t overthink it Tip the waiter Hold your breath Plate Love
9.
Sirens 04:38
Wake up, there’s something I want to tell you Open your eyes and stray not from my lips If you lend an ear to them, they’ll take you away Listen to how soothing it is, hear the sirens sing Close your eyes and listen to your heartbeat Breath in the air and pray yourself a dream Cause if you lend and ear to them, they’ll take you away Listen to how soothing it is, hear the sirens sing
10.
We are sunshine I stand awake You lay sleeping How does it feel to be dreaming so deep? Where do you run to, companion of mine? You are the wind We are sunshine We are sunshine I sit and wait While you lay chasing the clouds Hanging over the ceiling so free The eagle will take you over mountains over seas Among the weavers of dreams We will remember though memories fade away We are sound, we are color, We are movement underground, We are fire, we are weather, We are wind, we are sunshine
