Track Name: Tin Pan John's Little Bluebird Dream
Fly away little bluebird
Why not fly onto the moon
You're not stuck in this world
You are just a cartoon
Track Name: Little Bluebird
Fly away little bluebird
Why not fly onto the moon
You’re not stuck in this world
You are just a cartoon
Know where you’re going
Know where’s your home
Go where you’re knowing
Which stars to roam

Doopawdoopeedoopeeday (rimini rimini rimini)
Doopawdoopeedoopeedum (rimini rum) (repeat)

Come back home little bluebird
If you still know where you are
We’re all stuck in this world
Trying to find you in the stars
Are you still flying?
Have you lay down?
Your mother will keep on crying
Until you’re found

Won’t you come home to see what it is you have been missing
I think I’d like to know what it is you have been whistling
Won’t you come home to see what it is you have been missing
I think I’d like to know what it is you have been whistling

Doopawdoopeedoopeeday (rimini rimini rimini)
Doopawdoopeedoopeedum (rimini rum) (repeat)
Track Name: You're More That What I Thought My Life Could Be
You fill my heart with melody
You’re the A to Z of ecstasy
Everything was wrong
Until you came along
You’re more than what I thought my life could be

Life can seem so unfair
But I can dream when you are there
Everything is fine
When I know you are mine
You’re more than what I thought my life could be

Everytime I see you
Something happens deep inside of me
It is love as far as I can see
And you just came right out of the blue
A fairytale come true

I’d sing this song
All day long
Just to let you know
That I love you so

Some days I must confess
I awake just depressed
Yet how can I be down
Whenever you’re around
You’re more than what I thought my life could be
Track Name: Hyperloop
We’re on the Hyperloop!
We’re on a trip from San Francisco to LA
We’re on the Hyperloop!
Whirring through pneumatic tubes, it’s completely safe
We’re on the Hyperloop!
They reckon we’ll be there in less than half an hour
We’re on the Hyperloop!
It’s guilt-free travel… it’s solar powered!
We’re on the Hyperloop!

Me and you on the Hyperloop
Sitting side by side

Watching YouTube on the onboard VDU
We’re on the Hyperloop!
We shut our eyes to music that we are free to choose
We’re on the Hyperloop!

Me and you on the Hyperloop
Sitting side by side oh yeah

Visionaries visualise as visionaries must
So thank you for your vision Mr. Elon Musk

We’re on the Hyperloop!
We’re on the Hyperloop!

On our way from San Francisco to LA
We’re on the Hyperloop!
Whirring through pneumatic tubes, I am not afraid!
We’re on the Hyperloop!

Me and you on the Hyperloop
Sitting side by side
Just me and you on the Hyperloop
A supersonic ride oh yeah

Visionaries visualise as visionaries must
So thank you for your vision Mr. Elon Musk (repeat)

We’re on the Hyperloop!
Track Name: Barcelona
If you were here in Barcelona
I would have climbed this hill with you
We would look down on Barcelona
On the harbour and the sea so blue

But I could never seem to find the right words to say
But are there any words that would make you want to come away?

But you know I’m not the girl that you want me to be
Because I don’t believe that love can set you free
But I could never seem to find the right words to say
You should have let me go free
But are there any words that would make you love me anyway?
It was such a long time ago

If you were here in Barcelona
I was never sure what you really thought of me
I would have climbed this hill with you
But I know I’m not the cure for your pain and misery
We would look down on Barcelona
Because I’m not the girl that you want me to be
On the harbour and the sea so blue
Because I don’t believe that love can set you free

But I could never seem to find the right words to say
You should have let me go free
But are there any words that would make you love me anyway?
It was such a long time ago

We could fly over Barcelona
You’re holding on to a dream that won’t come true
Holding hands inside our cable car
But I don’t feel the same way about you
We’d fall in love in Barcelona
Don’t you think it’s time for something new?
And never want to change the way we are
Track Name: Cat on a Farm
I wish I were a cat on a farm
Coz then I would have lots of things to pounce on
I wish I were a cat on a farm
Coz then I could sleep in the straw
I dream of being a cat on a farm

I’d start a family
Why not?
I’d start the family I haven’t got
I’d teach young junior how to run and how to jump and how to catch a bird
I’d teach him how to understand those silly humans with their silly words
We’d be a family
A loving family
A happy family
A perfect family

I wish I were a cat on a farm so then I could prowl around the ditches
I wish I were a cat on a farm pretending I’m a tiger in the wild
I dream of being a cat on a farm

I’d take my family out for lunch
We’d hear that little bluebird carcass crunch
I’d teach young junior how to steal and how to eat and how to snoop around
I’d teach him how sneak inside the pantry door without making a sound

We’d be a family of cats living on a farm
Living like the monarchy inside our palace barn
We’d take a holiday in the forest by the hill
Where there’s lots of things to chase and lots of things to kill
And then we’d pack up and say enough’s enough
Come on let’s go home
Come on let’s go home
Come on let’s go home
Track Name: Baby Blue
It ain’t true Baby Blue
I promise you it ain’t true

Do me a favour
Don’t read the papers
Those guys are spreading lies
It was a set up
My little buttercup
Just look into my eyes

It ain’t true Baby Blue
I promise you it ain’t true

That other woman
She means nothing
She’s got nothing on you
They’re out to get me, the paparazzi
I know what they’re up to

You know that I would die for you
So how could I ever lie to you

Baby Blue
Baby Blue
It ain’t true Baby Blue
I promise you it ain’t true

I’ve had many lovers
But there’ll never be another
You are all I care about
You are my glory
My never ending story
The one I cannot be without
You know that I would die for you
So how could I ever lie to you

Baby Blue
Baby Blue
How could I ever lie to you
Baby Blue
It ain’t true Baby Blue
I promise you it ain’t true
Track Name: The Vale of Caldor
High among the peaks of the Mystic Mountains
Lay the beautiful land, the land of Avion
The winged children play beneath the frozen fountain
But our hero senses that something may be wrong

Delora!
Delora!
Has anybody seen my beautiful wife?
Delora!
Delora!
She just disappeared into the fading light
She was plucked from the verge of a cold dark night
But little does our hero know
She’s been taken to a place where no one dares to go…

The Vale of Caldor
The Vale of Caldor
Oh would anyone dare step into the lair of these demons of the air
Who live in the Vale of Caldor

Deep down in the chambers of the mystic mountains
Where the white knight stumbles on a clearance to the vale
His children kept on playing, he has had to go without them
Searching for an answer, searching for a trail to

Delora!
Delora!
I think that I can see my stricken wife?
Delora!
Delora!
She’s marooned on a rock in a lake of fire
Watched by the demons who are perched up higher
But now is not the time to be shedding tears
For here is a place that can kill a man with fear…

The Vale of Caldor
The Vale of Caldor
Oh would anyone dare step into the lair of these demons of the air
Who live in the Vale of Caldor
The Vale of Caldor
I ask you why would you try to fly at these demons of the sky
Who live in the Vale of Caldor

Delora
Delora
Delora
Delora

Would anyone dare step into the lair of these demons of the air
I’m so scared
I haven’t got a prayer
I know it’s not fair
But I’m afraid I’m gonna have to leave you there Delora.
Track Name: Falling in Love
I sit alone aboard the train to Heerenveen
My mind is cast away to when I was sixteen
My mother she warned me, she said I was much too good
But I just laughed because I had fallen in love

I cannot lie
I loved making him cry
My blue eyed boy
Who taught me of the joy of falling in love
We took it for granted coz we were too happy and young
To know what it’s like to ever stop falling in love
To ever stop falling in love

I’m on my way to see my mother in a home
It breaks her heart to know that I am travelling alone
I drift away
To a summer day
My blue eyed boy
Who taught me of the joy of falling in love
We took it for granted coz we were too happy and young
To know what it’s like to ever stop falling in love

Falling in love
Falling in love is wasted on the young

I sit alone aboard the train to Heerenveen
My mind keeps turning back to when I was 16
But now he is just a memory
A twinkling in my eye
A mountain in the distance
A star up in the sky
Track Name: You Have Got a Gun
There is a cat with one eye
Yes there is a cat with one eye
And it looks really ill
Like it wants to be killed
As it sits on a wall
Scared by a football
Wheezing, sneezing
Watch it trickle down
Down down down

And you have got a gun
I do believe that you have got a gun
And it feels real cold
But you won’t let go
As you wait in your room
Aware of the full moon
Breathing, seething
Some things bring you down
Down down down

So are you gonna shoot that one eyed cat
Or are you gonna stand there crying
Coz if you don’t shoot that one eyed cat
She’s only gonna end up dying in pain

There is a horse with a twisted knee
Yes there is a horse with a twisted knee
And it moves real slow
Like your fingers when they’re cold
As the lids of its eyes
Bat away the greenflies
Hovering, slobbering
Watch them settle down
Down down down

And you have got a gun
I do believe that you have got a gun
But can you wait a while
With your vacant smile
As you stare at the knee
Whistling a melody
Simmering, dithering
Some things bring you down
Down down down

So are you gonna shoot that crippled horse
Or are you stand there whistling
Coz if you don’t shoot that crippled horse
Maybe you should keep on whistling
Maybe you should keep on whistling
Track Name: Gotta Let the Iodine Dry
If you’re life is gonna be
Unassuming poetry
An accent is essential
You can mend a differential
On a tractor or a car
As you sit inside a gradually empty looking bar
And only like outsiders in the presence of a child
And hate their accidentally self-adoring smiles

You gotta let the iodine dry (repeat)

If your life is gonna be
Unassuming poetry
The lives of animals are short and crowded in
And full of gluttony – that’s a harmless deadly sin
Describing perfectly why the frost stayed on the glass
It never saw the sun and now you’re off to mass
To hang around the back and barely listen to the priest
But every night say a prayer your loneliness will cease

You gotta let the iodine dry (repeat)

If you got to know me
I think that you might like me
A window on my sorrow
And things that you don’t know about me

If your life is gonna be
Unassuming poetry
No interest can be taken in silly little things
But beauty can be found in casual manufacturing
A perfect understanding of animals and wires
And a quelling of your ancient and innermost desires
Never telling of your fear, you’re a stoic til the end
And the guy who never does a tap can never be your friend
Track Name: Rio de Janeiro
I’m sorry but I don’t wanna dance
I’m sorry but I never take a chance
But here in Rio de Janeiro
There is nowhere you can hide
Almighty God looks down on Rio de Janeiro
Beyond the blue horizon
Beyond the rising tide

I’m sorry but I don’t wanna smile
I’m worried I’ll look like a child
But here in Rio de Janeiro
There is no such thing as shame
Almighty God looks down on Rio de Janeiro
He doesn’t know you’re frightened
He does not know your name

Close your eyes and feel the love
Feel it coming from the sun
The sky is so blue
Let it wash all over you
Close your eyes and feel the love
Feel it coming from the sun
The sky is so blue
Let it wash all over you

Because here in Rio de Janeiro
There’s no time to think things through
Almighty God looks down on Rio de Janeiro
He may not give redemption
To anyone but you

Close your eyes and feel the love
Feel it coming from the sun
The sky is so blue
Let it wash all over you

Close your eyes and feel the love
Feel it coming from the sun
The sky is so blue
Let it wash all over you
Track Name: Tin Pan John's Little Bluebird Dream (Reprise)
Fly away little bluebird
Why not fly onto the moon
You’re not stuck in this world
You are just a cartoon
