Track Name: SELFISH SHELLFISH
Three little pipi in our pipi shells
Sunshine
Seaweed
Lying in the shallows as we filter feed
Tide's in
Tide's out
Hanging out together singing
We live next to...

Two tuatua in our tua shells
Sunshine
Seaweed
Lying in the shallows as we filter feed
Tide's in
Tide's out
Hanging out together singing
We live next to...

One prickly kina in my kina shell
Just me
Myself
One selfish shellfish on a rocky shelf
Leave me
Alone
Don't want any company
But I live next to ....
Track Name: LIVING IN THE CITY
Living in the city
Where the skies are blue
Pretty little city when the sun shines through

I buy a little lollipop I eat a little bit
I spy a tiny spider
And I squash it with my foot

I look to left I look to right
I try not to get hit
I find a broken bottle
And I poke it with a stick

A little bit of running
And a little bit of jump
A little falling over
And a little bit of bump

I kick a can to Canada
My shoelace come unstuck
A tiny bit of trouble
And a little bit of luck
Track Name: MY MOTHER'S LOCKED OUT OF THE HOUSE
My mother’s locked out of the house
I have locked her outside
She’s yelling and screaming
And stamping her feet
With a murderous look in her eye

My mother’s locked out of the house
I won’t let her back in
She’s causing a riot
Until she is quiet
My mother’s locked out of the house

My mother’s locked out of the house
I have told her before
She’s raising her voice
So she’s left me no choice
She can bang all she likes on the door

My mother’s locked out of the house
I have put my foot down
She’s got to remember
To cool her hot temper
My mother’s locked out of the house

Let me in
Let me in
Or I’ll make such a fuss
From the Bluff to Levin
(Levin Levin lovely Levin)

My mother’s locked out of the house
I have got the spare key
Her awful behaviour
Has upset the neighbours
She doesn’t look sorry to me

My mother’s locked out of the house
I am counting to three
She hasn’t stopped shouting
So she’s still time outing
My mother’s locked out of the house
Track Name: FROZEN
Me and my companions
Will we survive the cold>
We're lost in Antartactic wasteland
We must go on...

Winter came too quickly
Will we survive the cold?
We're down to our last provisions
We must go on...

We can't see our footsteps
Will we survive the cold?
Our brave new flag lies abandoned
We must go on...
Track Name: BITE
They bite at night
I never see them
They bite at night
Can't smell or hear them

Silently they come at night
And run upon my skin
They hop and crawl, jump up the wall
I don't invite them in

We are the fleas
We are the mites
We are the nits
We are the lice
Track Name: GIMME
You're younger than you'll be tomorrow
You're older than you were yesterday
We hope your mother's beauteous
You cam out of her uterus
Happy happy happy birthday
Track Name: VEGEMITE SPREAD
Vegemite Spread
All over my bed
She gives me the most
When I'm eating toast
Leaves me nothing but crumbs
Vegemite Spread

Vegemite Spread
I go where I'm led
Under the sheets
I secretly eat
Leaves me nothing but crumbs
Vegemite Spread

If I'm a fella
She's my Nutella
Extract of yeast
She's my midnight feast

Vegemite Spread
I need to be fed
She comes in a jar
She don't go that far
Leaves me nothing but crumbs
Vegemite Spread

So good for me
She's my vitamin B
She don't go to waste
'Cos I love every taste
Oh yeah
Track Name: EEL
Eel ... slithering and shy
Feel ... sneakily inclined
Conceal ... deep beneath the slime
Reveal ... beady little eye

Eel ... swim against the tide
Feel ... sleekily entwined
Conceal ... creep up from behind
Reveal ... ripple through your mind

We will writhe from the rivers and the streams
We will writhe together in your dreams

Eel ... our own kind
Track Name: BIG MOON
Big moon shining through the window
Look down on me
Shine your headlight round my room
Cos I can't get to sleep

The moon just smiled a secret smile
And sailed on by...

Big moon shining through the window
Look down on me
Roll around the world each night
What do you see?

The moon just smiled a secret smile
And sailed on by...
Track Name: IT'S FOR YOU
Fatcat Fishface
It's for you!
