Walkabout Waterbottle Walkabout waterbottle's come a long way to be here today It's just plain water with a vague hint of soil, but it's worth its weight in oil Every day what a lot of bottled water's shipped around the planet tipped to be fashionably sipped It's a plastic, packaged promotional trap for something we should get from a tap Importing water oughta be thought of as resources out of sync, don't need a handful of land fill with every drink Yeah, recycling's good, re-use is better yet, but not to make it at all's the best bet Full colour labels rave how they can save us, outrageous claims do us no favours Saying "chemical free" is kind of pox, I'd guarantee it's chockers with dihydrogen monoxide It's not naturally any purer to be from somewhere fancy free like France or Fiji Get globally vocal, but go really local, oppose those disposed to impose disposable Bottled water's but a salient example relating to a world of pointless packaging and frivolous freighting And while demand meets supply, they'll suck us dry, so keep your cash, purge your urge to buy Just give it to me straight, not refined or overly pure, cut all the waste and the hype and the overture Though in the bedroom, instead, dub thee a knighthood, a little wrapping there could do the earth a world of good ©Mal Webb 2009

Knees 04:00
Knees (for Gran). Your body's an amazing thing The fact it works at all's astounding And yet we take for granted This most marvellous meat machine On top of that, some bits get more Than their fair share of slander Like the heels, elbows, nose and armpits Gizzards, shins and spleen But there's one body part that stands alone In being useful yet abused But it's not gunna take it laying down Yes indeed you need your knees They come in handy climbing trees A proposal is disposable If you don't get down on one And a fun run with a bung one Isn't much fun in the long run Kindly take care of your knees It would displease you should they seize They bend over backwards for you But you never praise their work Then you speak of them with words Like dodgy, knobbly, trick and jerk Fancy feet and hula hips and twinkle toes Get all the credit on the floor But they'd be flapping in the breeze Without the knees So stoic and reliable and true In this world of hype and marketing It's not enough to be good at what you do So let's not neglect the knees For to joy they are the keys They provide a place for banjos They're a must when laying eggs And a tantalizing halfway point When you're heading up the legs Come anoint that joint the knee Priests and beggers would agree It's an instant chair for special friends Anywhere in all 4 seasons That'll fly between two other knees For a multitude of reasons Hip and shoulder, thumping thighs And fleeting feet get all the credit on the field But they'd be flapping in the breeze Without the knees So faithful and dependable and true In this world of glitz and spin doctors It's not enough to be good at what you do To be great at what you do To be the best at what you do Let's hear it for the knees Right from elephants to bees For our lives are full of ups and downs Let's not forget the middles So come dance a little can can To patella paradiddles For the knees © Mal Webb 2001

Penelope Swales (guitar), Carl Pannuzzo (drums), Mal Webb (bass, mbira and bugle) and Andrew Clermont (violin, mandolin and guitar). Instigated in 1998. ... more
