SUMMER SHENANIGANS

the word is out on the streets
fresh paint drips on concrete
kids gone crazy in the heat
you bet they're up to mischief

summer shenanigans
smells like someone's cooking up some bad ass plans
summer shenanigans
idle dirty hands and ants in the pants
happy summer mondays beat the winter weekends
gotta go wild before the summer ends

summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!

summer shenanigans
woke up buried neck deep in the sand
summer shenanigans
beware the guy with the jazz hands

summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!

hey have you heard the news, boy
you can't get the blues, oh no
if you stay amused or even confused
stick with us and you get to choose

summer shenanigans!
summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!

just a little fun fun fun
everybody's gotta have some some
hey daddy-o, you're in a freaking YouTube video

summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!

Lyrics

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the old Santa has gone AWOL
his endless shopping mall tours have taken their toll
and Christmas is getting close
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

and Christmas Eve arrives
you descend from the sky
in your homemade spaceship
amidst the snow confetti
wearing your shiny grey suit
with your loyal crew
of orange elves and furry friends
and Michael, Steven and Kliph

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
shake our little snow globe world
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

it's the most wonderful show
our senses overflow
it feels just like Christmas
to be sprinkled with love
the greatest Christmas present
is to treasure the present
and drop all worries and regrets

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
we feel Christmas all year long
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

make us smile and make us cry
show us why we need to try
even if our hearts might break
they're fixable with duct tape

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

POPSICLE SUMMER

here it comes
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

ooh I'm longing for another popsicle
cos Finnish summer is so fickle
every spring at least will bring some new tastes
all of which are not that great
but there might be new candidates for
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

hats off to Frank Epperson who was just eleven
when he bumped into his invention
a frozen drink combined with a wooden stick (ingenious!)
ice pop ice block ice lolly icy pole
oh so sweet and fresh and ice cold
when it gets hot you'll surely dig this
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

this is a tribute to
pop pop pop pop pop pop popsicles
of yesteryears that are now missing
Handy with it's pointed finger
Roger Rabbit's jelly center
Jenga was a long green spiral
Batman, Pop Up, Rio Cola
M.A.C. Black Orange, where did you vanish
please stay with me, at least you Pommac and Päärynä Lipsi!

cos it's summer and life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's summer and life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

Lyrics

last year we waited for the snow in vain
but instead it just rained
and last year the strangest sadness filled the air
we never thought we'd feel this way
on our favourite day of the whole long year

but don't worry because
this year it will be different
real and heartfelt
this year it will be different
all will fall into place
this year won't be like

last year
when the lights of love had disappeared
we were lonely and astray
oh last year
like a candle without a flame
we watched the season slip away
while our hearts were trapped in some cold dark place

but this year it will be different
real and heartfelt
this year it will be different
all will fall into place
because this year wont be like

last year
enough about last year

this year it will be different
real and heartfelt
this year it will be different
our hearts will melt
this year it will be different
all will fall into place
and real love will prevail

Lyrics

I woke up by the sea
under a tangerine tree
the night was so serene
in the a tree a tamarin
sang to me :

"shamateur
you got what you deserved"

the sand covered me
from my neck to my feet
"if you help me, tamarin
I'll buy you a trampoline,
help me"

"shamateur
you got what you deserved"

I couldn't move my body
my head felt like a tambourine
oh little tamarin
don't shake that tambourine
so wildly

"shamateur
you got what you deserved"

Invisible Revolution

Lyrics

someday we won't be alone
they'll contact us on our headphones
time is speeding up
to the moment when all those outcast
will get their chance

hearts reign over bank accounts
when the invisible revolution's through
feelings beat bureaucracy
as the invisible revolution dawns

someday when you wake up
all that you can live without
has been taken out overnight
your cat will have a knowing smirk
he's our new recruit

hearts reign over bank accounts
when the invisible revolution's through
feelings beat bureacracy
as the invisible revolution dawns

learn to become invisible
and you can see the real view

when we have changed enough little things
then we have changed all of reality
it will happen soon

hearts reign over bank accounts
when the invisible revolution's through
feelings beat bureaucracy
as the invisible revolution dawns

hearts rain
the invisible revolution's through
