about

A Flying Dodo Society New York, New York

"A Flying Dodo Society is a husband & wife music/animation project. They fabricate absurd and catchy songs about how the world will end, how to fish for humans, and what to wear when your armadillo is in despair. The project's primary inspirations are milk and cereal, mangroves, embalmed exotic animals, and a measureless wonderment at the inescapability of extinction... ... more

Track Name: The City Life Has Ended
Stay in bed
Rest your head
Please bring home some soup
(of course I will dumpling)

I’ll call your job
Say I was bitten by a dog
There’s saliva coming out my mouth
Oh dear god, what’s happened to my spouse?!

No
I don’t wanna take the train, boy
I don’t know
Put the stopper on the drain, boy
If she’ll live
Pull up the blanket to my cheeks then
I don’t know
Let’s pretend that it’s the week end

So let’s take off
These silly cloths
Crack open the champagne
The city life has ended
It’s just apartment life today
But oh, say have you heard me
No you haven’t heard me say:

Pa pa parara pa para
Pa pa parara pa para

Bust and bustle
This town’s a puzzle
Please untie my brain
The taxis say hi
As we watch from the sky
Send them off
To their steady jobs
Tell my boss
I’m not ready, cough

No
I don’t wanna take the train, boy
I don’t know
Put the stopper on the drain, boy
If she’ll live
Pull up the blanket to my cheeks then
I don’t know
Let’s pretend that it’s the week end

The city life has ended
It’s just apartment life today
But oh, say have you heard me
No you haven’t heard me sing
Track Name: We Ate The Sun
I like stealing star fish while my friend diverts the cops
He likes peeling carpets and the taste of soursop
Every night we hunt for something real
put it in the trunk and watch it squeal

From my terrace I can see the little people hum
I like how they crush between my index and my thumb
There is something wrong with something real
There is something wrong and that’s the way i...

Take a little sunshine
And you’ll see that sometimes
Skies that turn gray
Can brighten your day
And you could be the one to
Block me from the sun to day

Look out the window believe it
There’s a plane going down with the passengers dreaming
There’s a glittered man with his eyes full of feeling saying
“Let’s go have some fun”

And if you stay with me, we’ll put lobsters on the christmas tree
And jingle the bells in our bellies with a trampoline
I know it’s bad but I can’t find a reason
Yes I know it’s sad but I can’t find a reason not to

We ate the sun
Upon a picnic wedding
Three toasts were sung
We knew our lives were setting how
I hate the sun
roasting my roller coaster
It burns the birds
It ate my maid and chauffeur

There’s a ship, there’s a shop
There’s a skip, there’s a cop
There’s an animal balloon for everyone
There’s a drip, there’s a drop
There’s a slip and there’s a thought
And then there’s every little thing glowing in pain

So when I saw you in the room with your animal balloons
And your little sharp dress and your frosting perfume
I knew you were so close to our little dark tombs and i yelled
Let’s go have some fun

So when the skies open up and the creatures come in
We’ll give out plastic cups and we’ll make them our friends
There’ll be songs by the lake, there’ll be songs as it quakes
And as the old world expires we’ll be eating our cake
There’s no hope but i know, there’s no hope but i know I’d just rather

La la lalala lalala lalala la...

Take a little sunshine
And you’ll see that sometimes
Skies that turn gray
Can brighten your day
And you could be the one to
Block me from the sun today
Track Name: Cake In July
Nature, all around me
Crossing monkeys to the other side
Sitting pretty brittle with my pretty little bride

I think he loves me truly
I really love you truly
I’ll love you till the day I die
Please don’t say those words, you wanna make me cry?
Let’s just go:
(whistle solo)

We've gotta go
Splish splash, hold her down, don’t let go
And even if you see a lovely toucan
You gotta press harder, you gotta press harder
We’re getting rid of the man

Let’s just go
Splish splash, hold him down, don’t let go
And if Mr. Alligator stops by
Just tell him we’re doing what he should’ve been doing
We’re working for the big blue sky
Yes we're working for the big blue

Oh yes there’s just nature all around me
Wiping off the tracks we leave behind
Still some blood there, on your dark hair
Oh, but what we gonna eat tonight?
Is everything gonna be alright?
Wasting all our wishes on the little fishes
This way we’re never gonna have to do the dishes
Tell me do you eat the brain?
And do you like the rain?
It’s dripping down your face
Not on a window pane
And are you happy now
You look so happy now

Finally alone dear, no one phones here
Not a single human being in sight
But if someone ever finds me
Oh please leave me like you found me
‘Cause there’s nature all around me

All heavens break
They’re falling cakes
Right above mid-July
Spongeing the tide

As the zeuglodons fly
Your sheets, you’re shy
You just breathe in the leaves
Look so pleased that they could stop by and

Feast on the flesh of the beast, from inside
Tasting it die
Tasting it die and as you

Blast all the shells in the hell of your head
I’ll make the bed
That’s what she said
Just as we...

All I can see
Is you and me
Shouting wild symmetry
Waltzes the trees
Far from these candles and clocks
My hands that don’t walk
They just hold things
Whole things
And as you feast on the flesh
of the beast from inside
I'll make it die
Right after I make it cry

We've gotta go
Splish splash, hold her down, don’t let go
And even if you see a lovely toucan
You gotta press harder, you gotta press harder
We’re getting rid of the man

Let’s just go
Splish splash, hold him down, don’t let go
And if Mr. Alligator stops by
Just tell him we’re doing what he should’ve been doing
We’re working for the big blue sky
(Come on everybody)
Working for the big blue
(Hallelujah!)
Yes we're working
I said we're working for the big blue sky
Track Name: Everything Works!
Ever since I met you there’s been problems
With the world outside our window
All the buses run on time
12 o’clock the churches chime
It seems that everything
Yes, everything...
works

What’s the fireman to do with no fire
What’s the plumber meant to do with no plumbs
And the admiral has nothing to admire
Except the tips of his thumbs

Oh the locksmith he just locks the door
And they’re closing all the hardware stores
‘Cause nobody’s ever needed glue
Ever since I met you

Everything works
You better believe it
Call up all the animals and give ‘em dessert
Yes everything works
Grab your bags we’re leaving now
We’re high above the ceiling now

The grease monkeys and the handy man
Are all sad because they’re getting canned
And the jeweler and the cobbler too
They just sob into their hands

So what’s the gunsmith going to do with no guns
What’s the goldsmith going to do with no Smith
And Mr. Fixit what’s he gonna fix
Oh my, he looks so down
I think he’d like to die
Well let him die

Everything works
You better believe it
Call up all the animals and give ‘em dessert
Yes everything works
Grab your bags we’re leaving

Find the one and watch the world resign
‘Cause everything works just fine
Yes everything works just fine

Ever since I met you there’s been problems
Everyone’s outside our window
They’re just waiting for a sign
That our love will soon stop shining ‘cause
Ever since i met you everything,
And I mean everything works
Track Name: Squeaky Song To Hold Onto While Your Flight Is Delayed In Perú
I awoke inside my coffee pot and saw myself
Open the lid
Just as soon as the spoon
came down, I drank some,
Tried remembering what I did
What I did
Why’s my house surrounded by these

Burning matches,
in the hands of little kids
With big eye-lashes
If I step outside they’ll turn my
feet into ashes
You have never seemed so far away
Who the hell left out the Milky

Wait, it’s not you,
Just the universe did not rehearse
returning me to you
But don’t worry i’ll be there
When everything seems to come down to
it won’t happen
And it won't happen

I took my suit, my coat, my suitcase and my throat
The street was burning but my heart was burning
So much harder
The crabs flew by, I grabbed one by the neck
it checked to see if i was
crazy or something
I guess I looked crazy or something
And the air freshener in the taxi smelled like

Booze and feathers, talked all the way to the airport
‘Bout the weather, as I left the cab everything
seemed to get better, who would have thought my flight had to land
In a third world bowl of sawdust yellow sand

How it flew
It’s like the universe keeps trying to
keep me away from you
And I felt helpless and remembered
How one night I told you this would never happen
And it won’t happen...
And it didn’t happen
