lyrics

Grandmother says Whatever
You know I'm easy I've just got one piece of advice
And that is never, no don't ever
Don't book a wedding in September

The videographer has got
Deja-vu and double vision
He's suffering from a hangover
Or its a double wedding, he's not quite certain

The bride takes out the bridesmaid's eye
With the bouquet that the bride makes fly
The bridesmaid was distracted by
An old man that looks just like a little boy

The little-boy-looking old man
Watches an ascending balloon
The child from whence the balloon came
Cries softly trapped inside his pram

His Mother takes a cigarette break
Forgetting to secure the brake
(Of course) the pram it rolls off towards the lake
But in it's path: the wedding cake

The sky explodes with white frosting
Much slipping, sliding, panic ensuing
From a distance it looks like they may be dancing
Some take to the lake and are even swimming

Grandmother says Whatever
You know I'm easy I've just got one piece of advice
And that is never, no don't ever
Don't book a wedding in September

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
