I am crap at Tuareg. Food Mixers make more entertaining noises... [Sep. 24th, 2004|09:11 am]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |pinning my eyes open...]
[Music |The tune in my head wot I made up. Catchy!!]

I have been up since 3:30pm yesterday, done a full night's work and then come home and have to stay up as I'm supposed to be in college in a minute - will be stuck there till 11am then I'll get home about 1pm and go to bed...

I've been killing time between 6:30am and 9am with this:

Tuareg: http://www.brambos.com/download.html

Made a dreadful random racket of bleeps and fuzzy distortion drum stuff, then I might load it into this:

Mixcraft: http://www.acoustica.com/mixcraft/

...and mess about with it for a bit before discarding it as a sorry piece of trash lol!!

Ho hum. Bring on the pots and pans instead I say - lets have a junk-band of kitchen implements.

Now then, where's my whisk??

*wanders off muttering*

HIGH STREET CHELSEA HOUSEWIFE CATHARTIC NONSENSE:

I wrote these song lyrics at work - they have a tune and everything... so mock me Rev.Porl!!:

Find Me

Is this me?
I have been hiding somewhere
Was I buried underground or adrift in the air -
I have put myself aside so long in selfless care -
Is this me?

I've been trying to remember where I've been all my life
Drowning in the river going under all the time
Now I've dragged me to the bank and I'm coming up for air -
Is this me?

It's been so long
And I've forgotten the words to my song -

That I once sung -
When I was young.

Now is this me?
Where do I begin?
I'll have to take it on the chin if I'm going to win
If I'm gonna find out who I am I mustn't give in -
Find me!

Find me! - And now I'm looking everywhere -
Into every empty cupboard - under ev'ry empty chair -
I've been searching all the corners 'cause I think that I was there -
Like Macavity the Mystery Cat - can't find me anywhere!
Find Me!

It's been so long -
And I've forgotten the words to my song -

That I once sung -
When I was young -

When I knew where I belonged.

Give me time
Give me time
Give me time
Give me time

Give me time
Give me time
Give me time
Give me time

To find Me!


............................

I rather like the fact that I got Macavity in there...

For he's the master criminal who can defy the law
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard,
The Flying Squad's despair -
For when you reach the scene of crime
Macavity's not there!

Macavity Macavity,
There's noone like Macavity,
He (something something something blah)- He breaks the laws of gravity
His...

I can't remember the rest offhand, but I memorised it for 'recitation' when I was about six lol!!

Macavity: The Mystery Cat

Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw -
For he's the master criminal who can defy the Law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair:
For when they reach the scene of crime - Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity.
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime - Macavity's not there!
You may seek him in the basement, you may look up in the air -
But I tell you once and once again, Macavity's not there!

Mcavity's a ginger cat, he's very tall and thin;
You would know him if you saw him, for his eyes are sunken in.
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly domed;
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed.
He sways his head from side to side, with movements like a snake;
And when you think he's half asleep, he's always wide awake.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
For he's a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity.
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square -
But when a crime's discovered, then Macavity's not there!

He's outwardly respectable. (They say he cheats at cards.)
And his footprints are not found in any file of Scotland Yard's.
And when the larder's looted, or the jewel-case is rifled,
Or when the milk is missing, or another Peke's been stifled,
Or the greenhouse glass is broken, and the trellis past repair -
Ay, there's the wonder of the thing! Macavity's not there!

And when the Foreign Office find a Treaty's gone astray,
Or the Admiralty lose some plans and drawings by the way,
There may be a scrap of paper in the hall or on the stair -
But it's useless to investigate - Mcavity's not there!
And when the loss has been disclosed, the Secret Service say:
`It must have been Macavity!' - but he's a mile away.
You'll be sure to find him resting, or a-licking of his thumbs,
Or engaged in doing complicated long-division sums.

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity,
There never was a Cat of such deceitfulness and suavity.
He always has an alibi, and one or two to spaer:
At whatever time the deed took place - MACAVITY WASN'T THERE!
And they say that all the Cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
(I might mention Mungojerrie, I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the Cat who all the time
Just controls their operations: the Napoleon of Crime!

I like the song... I want to hear you sing it. :)

It's been so long -
And I've forgotten the words to my song -

That I once sung -
When I was young -

When I knew where I belonged.


Beautiful.
