7007 (640x603)

Sunny Torquay? whose kidding who? lumpy sun the humans call it, Christmas is over and its STILL raining.  Oh well I suppose we will have to get used to it, but personally I really am fed up getting wet all the time, so with this in mind I decided to go to the harbour and find Wizz Gull. Whilst sitting under an abandoned shed roof I decided to write and perform a song for Mother Nature, who knows if she likes it enough she might just turn the tap off.

Where does Wizz Gull come into this? well he is a music writer and I needed a tune for my song so down the harbour I went to find Wizz.  He normally sits near a rather nice pub/eating place which over looks the harbour and ferry that goes to a fishing port called Brixham,  I was surprised not to find Wizz sitting in his usual place watching for the fishing boats to come into harbour.  He likes Torquay, its open, lots of humans about and they play some cool music, must be where he gets his ideas from.

Anyway, it took me two days to find him, but I eventually got him by the restaurant,  then we went and sat on the roof where we had a short discussion.  “Look I want to sing a cheer-up song not just for us but for the humans.” I said, “But I need a tune can you help Wizz?”  Wizz took a few paces backwards and forwards then stopped. “Yep man, I think I know just the tune”, then with his head on one side he began to hum it.

Whilst he was humming it I was busy writing down words, it’s called Lumpy Sunshine and goes something like this:

Lumpy Sunshine

Verse

Torquay is the town where the sun always shone down

The people they would sunbathe all over town

Summer was grand the people were tanned

But turned out Mother Nature had other plans

Chorus

Then it started raining

Only lumpy sunshine now

Verse

We birds are getting wet and the people getting sad

Don’t feel like singing feel so drab

Glum faces appearing all around

Nowhere is there a piece of dry ground

C:

Then it started raining

Only lumpy sunshine now

Verse

So come on Mother Nature give us all a break

Stop this rain for everyone’s sake

Put on your smile and dry us out

Then we’ll feel like singing and flying about

C:

Now we all need sunshine

Don’t want no lumpy stuff no more

Now we all need sunshine

Don’t want no lumpy stuff no more

Well I sat in my tree and sang it to her,  Wizz and his group provided the backing, I thought we did well all the others came out and chirriped along.  Wizz said if it works we might make an album,  well the humans do it and he thinks we are better movers than someone called Jagger???
