Annabelle's Driving Song Aaah, aaah, aaah For a hundred miles ahead there's a desert track There's no turning off and there's no turning back Annabelle, you're coming along We're singing your driving song Got your hands on the wheel and the wind in your hair Where do you think you're going, do you even care? Annabelle, been driving so long We're singing your driving song We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you Annabelle There's a rhino in the road and his face is a sight The zebra's not crossing but the tigers might Annabelle, Annabelle The snakes in the trees and the monkeys too There's more animals than a day at the zoo Annabelle, Annabelle We're on Safari with you For a hundred miles ahead there's a desert track There's no turning off and there's no turning back Annabelle, you're coming along We're singing your driving song We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you Annabelle, Annabelle Annabelle, Annabelle Got your hands on the wheel and the wind in your hair Where do you think you're going, do you even care? Annabelle, been driving so long Driving so long

Tequila Pina Sunrise Well I'm stuck on a pineapple plantation It's the failure of the nation My friend's growing chicken And all he needs is drugs I could be up all night I got nothing to hide I say thank you To the Lord above The syndicate owns the farm Their job is to keep me warm They're the ones who didn't fail their Maths exam I'm working down on my knees Ask the Lord help me please Coz pineapple, man Goes just lovely with ham I got rings around my eyes My Tequila Pina Sunrise I'm the author of My own demise I ask the Lord to take me away He tells me that I'm here all day Oh, and Richie Don't skimp on those fries!

about

Anything Adele or Taylor Swift can do, Mint Biscuit can do twice as well!

21 < 42 > 22.

As I turned 42 earlier this month, I expected to find out the meaning of life. Turns out life has no specific meaning. But it helps if you get to experience the best things in life before you die. Love, sex, food, weather, shelter, comfort, family, friends, sport, music, art, language, laughter, work, praise, worship, travel, community, self-actualisation. Some people die early and miss out on so much.

I guess the only thing that is true to all of us, is you'd better make the most of what you are given. And be thankful for it.
