lyrics

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

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
