lyrics

Who says that only children play
As Gin and Ginger light the way
Your finger lingers in her clay
She sighs a sigh that breaks the break of day

Out the window blows the sigh
And through the old oak tree it flys
Through the bees and past the birds
Who twitter as they tweet their words

They feel something between their legs
There'll soon be eggs, there'll soon be eggs
Such is the nature of the sigh
The sigh that rides on wind and sea tonight

It teases ladies having tea
Under umbrellas by the sea
It slips in and out of their slips
They giggle as they sip their sips

It plays upon the seamen's sails
It teases them like siren's wales
The jellyfish they undulate
The dolphins mate and procreate

And when it lands upon Japan
The sigh it boards a rush hour train
It whispers to the business men
Enticing them with racy thoughts of sin

And later when they're with their wives
Their sex lives take on whole new lives
Such is the nature of the sigh
The sigh that rides on wind and sea tonight

It bounces off an aerial
Which broadcasts out its magic spell
To highest heaven, deepest hell
Your little girl climbs from her well today

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"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'.
