about

These three songs are about true historical events from years past.

The Great Emu War is, for the most part, in 4¾/4, or 19/16, which is a great time signature for rock n' roll.

The Banquet of Chestnuts is a piano improvisation in every key and no key.

The Kentucky Meat Shower is fairly straightforward rock with some weird chords. It's got a church bell sound at the end, which is fun.

Track Name: The Great Emu War
We've lost all our wheat
To this terrible foe
We'll send in the guns
These creatures must go

They have run amok
For far too long
Now they must die

We shall march forth into this war against the birds who
Wreck our crops and ruin our lives with their evil and
We shall be victorious now

Wait
Over there
I see one

There's one over there
One over here
I'm trembling with fear

SHOOT IT
SHOOT IT NOW
SHOOT IT
SHOOT IT NOW
SHOOT IT
SHOOT IT NOW

They're running too fast
We can't hit any
They're running too fast
We can't hit any
They're running too fast
We can't hit any
They're running too fast
We can't hit any

AIEEEEEEE
Track Name: The Kentucky Meat Shower
Friends and family, gather round
And let me tell you what hit the ground

Gobs and strips of something with bone
And the farmer's wife's mind was blown

(chorus)
What is this odd thing
A sky full of
What is this odd thing
A sky full of

What sign could this bring
A sky full of
What is this odd thing
A sky full of meat

Out in the heat
Kentucky shower
Eat the meat before it gets sour
Out in the heat
Kentucky shower
Eat the meat before it gets sour

Is it veal?
Is it mutton?
Baby lung or is it nothin'?
Out in the heat
Kentucky shower
Eat the meat before it gets sour

No-one could discover the cause
And some of them did eat without pause

But would they still if only they knew
It probably came from vultures who upchucked as they flew

(chorus)
