Mkgnao!

Mkgnao! (Calypso) by FathersOfWesternThoughtJJ

Lyrics

They call them stupid
Just shows what they know
Remember to do it
Doesn’t like her plate full.

Mkgnao!

Try to prevent it
Find out that you can’t move
Efforts are useless
Just look on and approve.

Mkgnao!

She runs to meet me
The girl with golden hair
The wind is behind her
Beauty it does repair.

Mkgnao!

 

Naughty Boy

Naughty Boy (Lotus Eaters) by FathersOfWesternThoughtJJ

Lyrics

Are you happy
In your home?
Don’t be coy
Naughty boy!

Won’t you tell
Tell me all
I’ll be here
Henry, dear!

I will punish you.

 

Rattle His Bones

Rattle His Bones (Hades) by FathersOfWesternThoughtJJ

Lyrics

Rattle his bones
Over the stones
Only a pauper
Nobody owns.

Rattle his bones
Use telephones
Maybe he’ll call you
Nobody knows.

Rattle his phones
Priest as he drones
Knock on the coffin
Nobody home.

Rattle his bones
Respectful tones
Underground tunnels
Nobody goes.

Rattle his bones
Enter unknowns
Where is he going
Nobody knows.

Rattle his bones
Pay off his loans
Show us your money
Nobody shows.

Rattle his bones
Wife as she moans
Make conversations
Nobody home.

Rattle his bones
Over the stones
Only a pauper
Nobody owns.
