about

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: I'm Batman
i've got a secret to tell
i only say this coz i know you well
i may seem timid and i may seem shy
but late at night i'm a super guy

i'm batman
i'm batman

there's no boy wonder and there's no alfred
there is a batcave, it's my backyard shed
my batmobile's a toyota corolla
i don't know a penguin but i know a joker

i'm batman
i'm batman

there's no boy wonder and there's no alfred
so get the comic books and movies out of your head
the world's full of evil all over the world
put on this little mask and be my batgirl

i'm batman
i'm batman
Track Name: Your Voice Is An Arrow Through My Heart
you can say all you want about the way that i live
you can say all you want about those things that i did
you can say all you want about my fondness for syd

but your voice is an arrow through my heart
(straight from cupid's bow)
with every word i only love you more...

you can say all you want and send me out on the plank
you can say all you want and sink the fish in my tank
you can say all you want i'll take it all to the bank

coz your voice is an arrow through my heart
(straight from cupid's bow)
with every word i only love you more...

lovely lips and tongue
lucky teeth
the way they work together is amazing

you can say all you want to bend me down on my knees
you can say all you want and feed my soul to the bees
you can say all you want with venom, i'll still say "please"

coz your voice is an arrow through my heart
(straight from cupid's bow)
with every word i only love you more...

your voice is an arrow through my heart
(straight from cupid's bow)
your voice is an arrow through my heart
(straight from cupid's bow)
Track Name: Cricket
i'm a little cricket
i'm short and i'm loud
you hear me in the silence
and in the crowd
i'm waiting in the bushes
outside your room
staring at your face
while you stare at the moon

you can go there with me
if you really wanna be free

i'm a little cricket
i hop really high
i'll take you with me baby
up to the sky
we'll laugh at all the airplanes
flying around
taking to the air
just to come right back down

it's not that way with we
coz we only wanna be free

i'm a little cricket
i'll tell you again
you may think you're dreaming
but i'm your friend
i've listened to you whisper
late late at night
asking for the moonlight
and stars shiny bright

you can go there with me
if you really wanna be free
Track Name: Why Can't I Say What I Mean?
after every conversation
i feel just like a fool
and there's no consolation
in the things that i do

so i take a walk along the seashore
feel the sand in my toes
stare out into the water
until it goes

and the waves roll in
and the waves roll out
and the breeze blows by me

it's thoughtful of the blue sky
to turn cloudy gray
and if no one listens to me
have i anything to say

so i take a walk along the seashore
feel the sand in my toes
stare out into the water
until it goes

and the waves roll in
and the waves roll out
and the breeze blows by me
everyday
Track Name: Whenever
whenever i feel down
and i think i might cry
i just turn off the tv
and look to the sky
and i see, high above the trees
clouds and birds or stars twinkling
if it's night

whenever i feel bad
'cause i mucked something up
i just take me on outside
and that lifts me up
'cause it's true, it's quite a view
our mother earth and our father
up high in the sky

you can't tell me
i don't know what it's like
i've been blue before
but not tonight

whenever i feel tired
and my room's all a mess
i just take off my shoes
and give it a rest
for a while, and it makes me smile
being the king of my own little mess
little room

whenever i feel sick
and i want to get out
i just splash in the bathtub
as if there's a doubt you could be
too unhappy
naked and wet
with a small rubber duck
floating by

you can't tell me
i don't know what it's like
i've been blue before
but not tonight
