An effervescing elephant With tiny eyes, and great big trunk Once whispered to the tiny ears The ears of one inferior That by next june he'd die, oh yeah ! Because the tiger would roam And the little one said oh my goodness I must stay at home And everytime I hear a growl Ill know the tigers on the prowl And Ill be really safe you know The elephant he told me so And everyone was nervy, oh yeah! And the message was spread To zebra, mongoose, and the dirty hippopotamus Who wollowed in the mud and chewed His spicy hippoplancton food And tended to ignore the word Prefering to survey a herd Of stupid water bison, oh yeah! And the jungle took fright And ran around for all the day and the night But all in vain because you see The tiger came and said to me, You know I wouldnt hurt not one of you I much prefer something to chew Youre all too scant, oh yeah! He ate the elephant...

Auntie Mamie, open up the door Auntie Mamie, open up the door Auntie Mamie, open up the door What I did last night I ain't gonna do no more but she said: Charlie cannot take a drink When he go out never stop to think He would drink and drink more and more When he get home I won't open up my door Auntie Mamie, open up the door Auntie Mamie, open up the door Auntie Mamie, open up the door What I did last night I ain't gonna do no more but she said: Charlie now listen to me You can't be free and still havin' me I'm tired of gettin' in a fight If you get drunk you will sleep outside some night

when i came to toulouse one year ago i came to see my friend who's called tonio i can reveal i wasn't really ok that is why i had to take holidays in this city i couldn't just know my way i tried to find a map into the subway to know where it was i said hey policeman he explains me the road to go the B line but i tried so hard to entering it another man said to me it is not opened policemen are not that good they want to tell me the better way i go back home Now years have passed and new stories every day But discovering a city is all the same way I'm missing trains and also missing tramways Just hoping that like me one day they'll be late I can try hard and run after it But the driver says no with a sign of his hand Drivers are not that good they don't want to let me getting back home

i crushed my head with an elephant he told me i am now here to become a rumble shrimp of the deep black coffee i itch my ears two times before i search a sugar horny pillow fight my head is lower and hand seems bright shut that door the lion sleeps around the baker's hammer i sold my tears to a cheap blue cheese he told me life is a fork finally and newspaper's making surgery sofa's cover knew that's why it had to leave the home before midnight i guess it's better now and it's fine shoot that dog the lion sleeps with the butcher's hamster i dried my toes with a microphone it told my sweat is tastier than my spit i could have learned some special words but science's good only for catholics i'm sure it wants to pass a class its membrane's frozen due to its self-pride caress the lion from my wife i got to warm the grocer

about

Who said there's no such things as a free lunch ?

Bedroom Research, Proot and Thiaz Itch give you the complete course for free and don't forget the apperitive.
This new Thiaz Itch LP is a delightful bittersweet cocktail that comes on point for summer times. An avalanche of unexpected associations of sounds arranged with a great sense of humour and tones. Bursts of mandoline, maladjusted vocals, calypso, space age pop, dada collage, coconuts and bikinis are in the Menu.

shake it, serve and VOILA !

about

Thiaz Itch Toulouse, France

Swinging from synthetic fanfare to approximate big band, Thiaz Itch croons sprinkling his shimmering colors in an anachronistic and funny show.
His orchestra lurking in the shadows, he uses his hands and his mouth to leap moogy-pouêt-pouêt sounds with his clarinet, make his mandoline sing serenades and rock ‘n roll and play a spread of other wacky intruments.
