Bicycle

Everywhere you go in daylight

And everywhere you go at night

You can always count on me, love

To get you places in one piece

Yeah you can always count on me

To get you there in the end

In the end

Brave Robbie

I'm not afraid of fish, I'm not afraid of mushrooms

I'm not afraid of anything in the forest or in the sea

I’m not afraid of wheat, I’m not afraid of sparrows, no, no, no

I’m not afraid of anything in a field or a tree

That’s why they call me Brave Robbie, Brave Robbie

And I’m an inspiration … to myself

I'm not afraid of hair, I’m not afraid of noses, no, no, no

I’m not afraid of anything on your head or on your face

I’m not afraid of Mars, I’m not afraid of Uranus,

I’m not afraid of anything up there in outer space

That’s why they call me Brave Robbie, Brave Robbie

And I’m an inspiration … to myself

And though my exploits may be small

I feel courageous all the same, all the same

I’m not afraid of Greece, I’m not afraid of Greenland

I’m not afraid of anything in the west or in the east

I’m not afraid of bread, I’m not afraid of pizza

I’m not afraid of anything that contains a little yeast

That’s why they call me Brave Robbie, Brave Robbie

And I’m an inspiration … to myself

His Hair Stretched Up Into the Atmosphere

His hair stretched up into the atmosphere

It was a tower up into the sky

“My oh my,” said all the passers-by

It could defy the laws of gravity

Rising further than the eye could see

And it took the breath right out of me

And I said

“Maybe, if things were different, we could be friends”

SCORCHING SOLO

Yes I said

“Maybe, if things were different, we could be friends”

No one measured him ‘cause no one could

He refused to ever wear a hood

And I don’t think he ever should

Hot Pursuit in the Desert

Hot pursuit in the desert

Can only lead to burning feet

Camels thrown into panic

Sand all through your hair and teeth

All through your hair and teeth

Hot pursuit in the desert

Can only lead to tired legs

Racing toward the oasis

Happy just to get the dregs

Just to get the dregs

So why don’t we just give up the chase

And find our way home

When all those bandits are bearing down

With shiny swords and steely glares

It’s time to head for the nearest town

Before they catch you unawares

Hot pursuit in the desert

Can only lead to burning feet

Camels thrown into panic

Sand all through your hair and teeth

All through your hair and teeth

So why don’t we just give up the chase

And find our way home

I Fixed My Tyre

I fixed my tyre, early in the mornin’

It stayed inflated, early in the evenin’

I fixed my tyre all by myself

I felt like I’d been to the moon

And with two wheels back on the ground

I’ll soon be singin’ a different tune

I tied my laces, early in the mornin’

I ran some races, early in the evenin’

I tied my laces all by myself

I felt like I’d been to the moon

And now those bows are holdin’ their own

I’ll soon be singin’ a different tune

Jacaranda

(The Girl with Purple Hair)

Hark there, who’s looking down on me?

It’s the lilac-hued jacaranda tree

Home of the bird and the bumblebee

And the girl with purple hair

And if she showed herself how folk would stare

So she hides among the branches high

And drops good wishes on the passers-by

DAINTY SOLO

Oh if she showed herself how folk would stare

So she hides among the branches high

And drops good wishes on the passers-by

Hark there, who’s looking down on me?

It’s the lilac-hued jacaranda tree

Home of the bird and the bumblebee

And the girl with purple hair

Janitor

He’s got so many keys on his keychain

That I believe he must be a janitor

Yes, he’s got so many keys on his keychain

That I believe he must be a janitor

Well, either a janitor or a man with many houses

Either a janitor or a man with many houses

All day long he “janits” his time away

Then he’s gone like the gannets that fly away

He’s the jingly-jangly key man

And I believe he must be a janitor

Yeah, he’s the jingly-jangly key man

And I believe he must be a janitor

Well, either a janitor or a man with many houses

Either a janitor or a man with many houses

All day long he “janits” his time away

Then he’s gone like the gannets that fly away

He’s got so many keys on his keychain

That I believe he must be a janitor

Yeah, he’s got so many keys on his keychain

That I believe he must be a janitor

Well, how’d you get so plump, Mr Ratty?

Who’s fallen prey to your charms?

She gets all dis-com- bo-bu- la-ted

Polly Syllabic uses big words

Watch out everyone

She never watches over, she SUPERVISES

She never daydreams, no she FANTASIZES

And when confusion reigns

She gets all dis-com- bo-bu- la-ted

Polly Syllabic uses big words

Polly Syllabic, such fun

Polly Syllabic, uses big words

Watch out everyone!

Secret Note

He knew a secret note on the recorder

And he could bring his whole class to order

With the secret note

It was a note that only children heard

Secret note

Like the voice of an ancient bird

He was very reluctant to share it

Because he really didn’t want to scare it

Scare the secret note

It was a note that only children heard

Secret note

With the power of a magic word

So he kept the note secret

And he took it to his grave

It was to him and him alone

That the secret note was known

So Fascinating

(Oscar’s Song)

Standing up can be so fascinating

And sitting down can be so fascinating

Don’t you let anyone

Tell you otherwise, son

’Cause getting dressed can be so fascinating

And making lunch can be so fascinating

Look around and you’ll see

What a thrill life can be

Here we go again the day has started

Praise to those of us who are open-hearted

Open-hearted, open-hearted

‘Cause waking up can be so fascinating

And lying down can be so fascinating

Look around and you’ll see

What a thrill life can be

The Same Moon and Sun

When a yacht meets a boat

When a jacket meets a coat

Do they think – “We’re really different but the same”?

When a hawk meets a wren

When a sparrow meets a hen

Do they think – “We’re really different but the same”?

When all’s said and done

We share the same moon and sun

When all is said and done

We share the same moon and sun

When a flower meets a bush

When a shove meets a push

Do they think – “We’re really different but the same”?

When a rock meets a stone

When a chair meets a throne

Do they think – “We’re really different but the same”?

When all’s said and done

We share the same moon and sun

When all is said and done

We share the same moon and sun

When a …… meets a ……

When a …… meets a ……

When a drum meets a lute

When a slide meets a chute

Do they think – “We’re really different but the same”?

When a worm meets a mole

When a forward meets a roll

When a glove meets a hat

When a cricket meets a bat

When a rainbow meets an arch

When a stroll meets a march

When a wind meets a breeze

When a cough meets a …….

When a league meets a mile

When a frown meets a ……

Zoo

We can see monkeys, we can see deer

We can see animals shaggy and queer

And when the day is through we go on home

We can see monkeys, we can see deer

And when the day is through we go on home

Come on down to the zoo

Watch the chimps and the lions poo

GLOCKENSPIEL SOLO

Look at the tiger cleaning her child

And when the day is through we go on home

So come on down to the zoo

Watch the chimps and the lions poo

GLOCKENSPIEL SOLO

Yeah come on down to the zoo

Watch the chimps and the lions poo

A Star Once Rose

Seagulls circling overhead

Sand between your tiny toes

Keep that hat upon your head

Or you’ll have a shiny nose

Ho ho, hey hey, it’s Christmas in a different way

Ho ho, hey hey, it’s Christmas in New Zealand

Snowflakes on your windowpane

Paper, scissors, snip, snip, snip

Do you have your candy cane?

Sea-salt on your tiny lip?

CHORUS

A star once rose, brighter than the day

At least that’s what the astrological records say …

(Sugar Plum Fairy, Joseph and Mary)

Ox and ass were witness to

Miracles in distant lands

What’s an old ass got to do

With presents in your tiny hands?

CHORUS

Barbecues and rugby balls

Christmas in New Zealand

Water slides and waterfalls

Christmas in New Zealand

A child was born beneath that shining star

The news of things he did back then has travelled far …

(Sugar Plum Fairy, Joseph and Mary)

I wonder what it really means

Christmas in New Zealand

Reindeer, Jesus, reds and greens

Christmas in New Zealand
