about

While working as counselors at a performing arts camp in 2001 the three of us wrote a song a day, and we got pretty close. The music is pretty diverse, encompassing everything from children's songs ("Can You Pass the Butter") to love songs ("Lose Myself") to social awareness ("Hey, Starbucks"), to children's social awareness ("Can You Pass the Starbucks." Only joking. Ha. It's funny 'cause it's a lie.)

We made our first CD as the summer came to a predictable close, working hard for the few hours that all three of us were awake. Totaling 17 tracks, it's been called "A masterful tour of folk music by a startling new band." Or, at least that's what we said when we first heard it. Not that everything is "folky," but if you wanted a sort of one-word description of what it is we do, that would come the closest. Yeah. Well. Either that or "hardcore breakdance music." But that would be three words. And not very true, either.

Track Name: Pass the Butter
Can you pass the butter
Please pass the butter
Can you pass the butter
Cause my toast would taste better
Better, better, better, better
With butter on top

Can you pass the gravy
Please pass the gravy
Can you pass the gravy
Cause my toast would taste better
Better, better, better, better
With butter on top

So many places you can go
Spread things upon your toes
So many places I have seen
A piece of toast and sour cream

Can you pass my math test
Please pass my math test
Can you pass my math test
Cause my toast would taste better
Better, better, better, better
With butter on top

Can you pass the butter
Please pass the butter
Can you pass the butter
Cause my toast would taste better
Better, better, better, better
With butter on top
Track Name: Deep Down
I'm feeling deep
I'm feeling down
I'm feeling tired

I'm missing sleep
I'm rolling 'round
I'm feeling wired

But when you're near me (oooh)
That's when I start to fear me
(Down to the bottom of my soul)
That's why you see the things you think I try to say

I'm feeling blue
You're looking green
We start to drone

I say goodbye to you
I am alone

But when you leave me
That's when I start to breathe deep (Aaaah)
That's why you see the things you think I try to say

I'm feeling deep
I'm feeling down
I'm feeling tired
I'm missing sleep
I'm rolling round
I'm feeling wired

But when you're near me, that's when I start to fear me
That's why you see the things you think I try to say

Track Name: Mr. Medic
One day I woke up sad
Something's amiss today
Opened up my window
All the pigeons they done flew away

Went down to breakfast
Amos said, "Are you ok?
You look a little different
Better visit MD any ... hoo."

Mr. Medic what's wrong with me?
I feel kind of weird but I just can't see
The doctor said to me my friend
I think you broke your face (repeat 4 times)

I think you need a little love
How long has it been since you had a hug
I think you need a little love
and a facial cast

I think you need a helping hand
A helping hand to start to stand
I think you need a helping hand
and a facial cast

Mr. Medic what's wrong with me?
I feel kind of weird but I just can't see
The doctor said to me my friend
I think you broke your face (repeat 4 times)
think you broke your face
you broke your face
broke your face
your face

So you think you're special
Well you know you're right
So you think you're special
Lets say goodnight

The evening has come again
We lost the setting sun
The evening has come again
Dreams have just begun
The evening has come again
Be careful everyone

So you think you're special
Well you know you're right
So you think you're special
Lets say goodnight
So you think you're special
Well you know you're right
So you think you're special

In you I knew myself
In you I lose myself

Woah, away

In you I knew my self
Over I flew and fell
Falling free
Woah, away

In you I lost myself
In you it cost myself
I said, put it on the shelf
Put it away

Ooooh

(E A)
I look into the mirror and see absolutely nothing
... and everything
I look into your eyes and I see the sun rise
... and its rising still

In you I knew myself
In you I grew myself
So much time
Has gone away

Ooooh

I look into the mirror
and see absolutely nothing
... and everything
I look into your eyes
and I see the sun rise
... and its rising still

In you I knew myself
In you I lose myself
In you I find myself
In you I find myself
In you I find myself
Woah, away
Track Name: Blue Hound
Sarah Jane and Suzzy Sue
Walked right into town
Never heard of the big blue hairy hound
Them two went to the county store
To get some licorice wips
But that there store did not have anymore

Chorus:
They said the hound ate it all
And you wont see him any more
He up down left right back turn scaddled away
He's got the belly of a tanker
Said the silly one eyed banker
But momma said she saw him yesterday


Some people wanta know
Where all the cows and chickens go
The hay bales disappear in threes and fours
Put all your boots away or the hound will eat them all
Board your windows, lock all of your doors

(Chorus)

I looked out of the window
And I saw him standing there
He walked up to the close line and grabbed my underwear
So we chased him into town cause
That was there my best pair
By the time I found him he just done ate the mayor

(Chorus X 2)
Track Name: My Own Name
I dont know many answers
Or even where I'm from
I dont know many people
And it sounds kinda dumb, but

Sometimes I dont even know
My own name

I dont have many problems
Well, maybe a few
I still dont know the answers
Well, maybe a few

Sometimes I dont even know
My own name

Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
How am I gonna sleep?
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
How am I gonna eat?
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
How am I gonna sleep?

And I know my life is timed
And I know theres no rewind
But that stuff I dont mind
And how am I gonna find

Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
How am I gonna find?
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
How am I gonna mind?
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
Ooh wah, ooh wah, ooh wah, a ooo
How am I gonna find?

Well, hear my mother calling
Its time to go on home
I think its time for dinner
It time to use the phone

I dont really know my mother
I dont know where is home
I dont know where is dinner
And I kinda lost my appetite

Sometimes I dont even know
My own name
Track Name: Hey Starbucks
Hey Starbucks
Get outta my neighborhood
Every time I look around
You are there to be found

Hey Starbucks
How many stores do you need?
How many folks do you overcharge
How many kids do you feed?
None!

Went to the Taj Majal
Ordered a cup of joe
When I asked where it was from
They said you dont want to know

Went to Ellis Island
The Statue of Liberty
And when I went into the crown
What do you think I did see?

They were serving frappucino
Giving out cappucino
Dishing out mochachino
This and that a-chino

Hey Starbucks
Get outta my neighborhood
Every time I look around
You are there to be found

Hey Starbucks
How many stores do you need?
How many folks do you overcharge
How many kids do you feed?

Went to Mt. Rushmore
Lookin' at Roosevelt
Was surprised to see
A Starbucks in his belt

Yeah Mt. Rushmore
Washington was big
Was surprised to see
A Starbucks in his wig

Then I went to Notre Dam
Flew to Vietnam
Ended up in Guam
And all of them served Non
Fat, Decaf, Lates, From Starbucks

Hey Starbucks
Get outta my neighborhood
Every time I look around
You are there to be found

Hey Starbucks
How many stores do you need?
How many folks do you overcharge
How many kids do you feed?
None!
