Liner Notes

I’ve been aiming to do more songs that could be turned in to stories.

This was my first attempt at writing a song from a story prompt.


I’ve body surfed before.
Hopping in to other frames.
I’ve body surfed before.
Sometimes it, it fits my brain.

I like to try new things.
Yes, and sometimes new shapes, too.
This giraffe is kind of new.
It’s kind of filled with goo.

This giraffe is kind of strange,
it fills my head, it fills my brain.
This giraffe is kind of strange, and I’m
walking around the room.
Walking around the room!

I’ve got little nubs
sticking on my head.
They’re kind of like horns, I guess,
but they’ve got another name.

I guess they’re calling me a name,
but I’m a little giraffe.
I guess they’re calling me Henry.
I guess that’s my name now!

I like to go body surfing now.
Sometimes I’m in an eagle, and
sometimes I’m in a cow.

I like to do these crazy things with my brain.
Stuck in lots of shapes and sizes,
it’s never quite the same!

Let’s all go body surfing
at the Surf N’ Turf.
Get yourself something to eat,
the mushroom’s the ‘wurst!

(Not the worst, the ‘wurst. Like a mushroom bratwurst, yeah.)

These mushrooms,
they are the best in town.
Throw on it some yeast
transformed in to a giant clown.

Yummy, yummy, yeast products!
Yummy, yummy, fungus, too!
Add some algae on the top and
you’ve got the whole room.

These are just the things
that you can eat while inside.
Inside the minds of all
these animals without hides!

They’ve got not hides,
they’ve got no skin, no bones as well!
They’re just simulations,
even if you can’t tell.

You can come on down,
we’ve got lots to see.
Come on down and try it out,
it’s for the family!
