about

DOGBREATH, the third album by FATCAT & FISHFACE, is a wild and wonderful musical adventure.

Songs range from the shower room to outer space; from a dinghy on the ocean to the backseat of a crowded bus. Tongue twisters, cheeky choruses and dogbreath ditties.

Track Name: TIP OF MY TONGUE
Are you able to play tennis on a turning tennis table?
Will your mother mollycoddle Mrs Morse’s daughter Mabel?
Can you lick a lolly scramble like a lizard at a lake?
Can you carry half a carton full of crunchy carrot cake?

Did your sister get a blister from assisting Mr Morse?
Or was it helping Harry hit a home run? Yes of course
Can you stick a naked bunny in a cranny or a nook?
Can you bring a bacon buttie and a bottle and a book?

It’s on the tip of my tongue

How do horses hear a hoodlum when they’re hurtling hell for leather?
Why do weasels whistle wetly in the wild and windy weather?
Did your father find a feather for the funky fashion show?
Or did he force young Norman Morse to tell him where to go?

Can you count the clucking chickens as they cackle in the clover
After Mrs Morse’s Morris Minor nearly ran them over?
Did you drink a drip of danger juice and drain the bottom drop?
Can you eat the ears of elephants and never want to stop?

It’s on the tip of my tongue

Can someone tell the Morses that their dog is here for dinner
That their cat has lost its confidence, their guinea pig is thinner?
The Morses are our neighbours Mr, Mrs, Norman, Mabel
And all of them play tennis on a turning tennis table

It’s on the tip of my tongue
Track Name: LISTEN TO ME
Woke up with a feeling
I wanted to be rude
I was mean to the aspidistra
Stuck a fork into my food

Coffee tasted evil
Just like my coffee should
I looked so bad and ugly
But boy did I feel good

I'm Mr Going Nowhere
I'm Mr Know It All
Listen to Me

Went down to the corner
Caught myself a bus
Took up all the backseat
There was no one I could trust

Felt like causing trouble
Pulling wings off flies
Little kids were staring
At me with both their eyes

I'm Mr Going Nowhere
I'm Mr Know It All
Listen to Me

Please, listen to me
Listen to me
Please listen to me
Listen to Me

People recognised me
Got out of my way
I steamrolled down the pavement
Didn't stop to pay

A big chip on my shoulder
There's nothing on my mind
I'm on my way to nowhere
I feel like killing time

I'm Mr Going Nowhere
I'm Mr Know It All
Listen to Me
Track Name: NOODLE
I'm in the nude
I'm in the nude
I'm in the nickey nude

I'm completely naked
(She's completely naked)
I'm completely naked
Naked as the day that I was born
Completely
Track Name: DINGHY
Not a breath of wind
Not a cloud in the sky
Not a thing to think
Not a passerby

I’m in my dinghy … afloat
I’m in my dinghy … a boat

On a bluesome day
On a lingering sigh
On a seamless sea
Rubber lullaby

I’m in my dinghy … afloat
I’m in my dinghy … a boat

Calm blue ocean
Deep blue sea
There is nowhere I would rather be

Let me drift away
Let me swim on the tide
Let me laze alone
On the ocean wide

I’m in my dinghy … afloat
I’m in my dinghy … a boat
Track Name: FINGERS
It wasn't me
I'm as sweet as can be
It was my fingers
2,3,4

Please understand
They're on the end of my hand
They are my fingers
2,3,4

Five times two
Four plus one
Thumb

I didn't take
It was all a mistake
It was my fingers
2,3,4

Nobody saw
But it's happened before
It was my fingers
2,3,4

Five times two
Four plus one
Thumb

Stealing things from private places
Stealing things

Let me explain
It won't happen again
It was my fingers
2,3,4

All skin and bone
But I never leave home
Without my fingers
2,3,4

Five times two
Four plus one
Thumb
Track Name: ONE LITTLE GOAT
One little goat
That's all I need
One little goat

Don't feed the
One little goat
That's all I need

One little goat
Indeed
Track Name: OLD FOLK DANCE
Feet on the floor
Feet on the floor
Put down what you were doing before

Stay in your chair
Stay in your chair
Don't move a muscle from here to there

Open your ear
Open your ear
If you don't listen than you'll never hear
Track Name: FOLLOW YOUR NOSE
Fish are living in the trees
Birds are swimming in the deep blue sea

There's a place I know
Not far from here
I can show you if you want to go
It's oh so near

Follow your nose
Follow your nose
From your head
To your toes

Pigs are singing in the sky
Bells are ringing but we don't know why

There's a place I know
Not far from here
I can show you if you want to go
It's oh so near

Follow your nose
Follow your nose
From your head
To your toes
Track Name: WEATHER REPORT
Sea
Swell to a giant storm
Give up the greatest waves
To wash and destroy the cities of our enemies

Fire
Rage and burn with such ferocity
That the entire earth is flushed with fever

Wind
Blow into a thousand hurricanes
That encircle the world creating chaos and tumult

Thunder and lightning
Sound the loudest rumbles throughout the skies
Zig the sharpest zag across the paths of the planets
Track Name: NOT FRIEND
Not friend not now
Not friend today
I'm sick of playing with you
Keep away

When you leave please close the door
I don't like you anymore

I feel angry I feel mad
When you're gone then I'll be glad

Keep away
Track Name: PLANET JANITOR
O the bigness of space
And the wideness of forever
Keeps me busy from morning to night

The world's in a spin
Can I be of assistance
Making certain your orbit's alright

Pulling strings
Running rings around Saturn
Mercury's rising in the sky
Southern Cross hasn't lost its beauty
I'm on duty with the stars and satellites

O things get around
When you're in the solar system
Always turning all together on your own

It's a strange kind of dance
This planetary alignment
But there's always a light on at home

Pulling strings
Running rings around Saturn
Mercury's rising in the sky
Southern Cross hasn't lost its beauty
I'm on duty with the stars and satellites
