The Marble Tea Point Pleasant

Drawing mandalas and watching Captain Kangaroo...that's pretty much what it's like in here. I enjoy writing songs about my cats and cartoon insects, but I'm also fond of feeling up the tentacles that lead to the oneness of existence. That's the Marble Tea experience.

Recommended for fans of Jonathan Richman, Robyn Hitchcock, Jazz Butcher, Magnetic Fields, etc.

Track Name: English
I'm teaching my cats to speak English
Coz that's the language I prefer
They don't take to it too well
But they're trying

I'm teaching my cats to speak English
So they'll understand what I say
Instead of staring blankly at me
We'll have a conversation

And they'll tell me everything they think about
And I will tell them things they need to know
They won't keep looking at my finger when I point
And say, "Hey! Look at that bird outside the window!"

I'm teaching my cats to speak English
For the full effect of TV
We'll sit together laughing loudly

I'm teaching my cats to speak English
We'll be just like a real family
Next on the list is learning to swim
Oh Lord help me....
Track Name: Où est le Drake?
Ou est le Drake?

Est il dans le chambre
Est il sous le doudou
Fait-il dodo
En revent des poissons

Ou est le Drake?

Il est tres potele
Il ressemble un hibou
Il a une raie sur son nez
Et il marche comme John Wayne

Ou est le Drake?
