05 * bumblebee

lyrics

_

at home all day
the radio plays
songs from films of years gone by
some sad, some sweet
but he don't dig that beat
he wants a pocket deep and wide

he works in daddy's corner shop
but all he thinks of is hip-hop

chorus:
ka ka kalakala vandu
nee eppidi appam shuduvai
kota nellai kumuki
kumma kumma kuthi

* o, crow,
o, sociable bumblebee,
how do you make your pancakes?
we harvest, winnow and pound the grain *

he's not into
the bhangra tunes
that his neighbours play so loud
it's not the groove that makes him move
he's never been one of the crowd

he works in daddy's corner shop
but all he thinks of is hip-hop

chorus:
ka ka kalakala vandu
nee eppidi appam shuduvai
kota nellai kumuki
kumma kumma kuthi
cheeni shakarai pottu, adilay naiyum vittu
shuttu thadi shuri
na pittu pittu thingarenay

* o, crow,
o, sociable bumblebee,
how do you make your pancakes?
we harvest, winnow and pound the grain
then add sugar and butter
please make me one
i'll break it off piece by piece and eat it *

PINKNOISE Kolkata, India

PINKNOISE, formed in 2006, is the mischievous late night alter-ego to indie pioneers Skinny Alley.

Their debut studio full length, The Dance Of The Diaspora, was released in 2014 after a tumultuous two years during which time the band lost its bassist Gyan Singh to illness.

He is survived by Jayashree Singh (voice, stories), Amyt Datta (guitar, synthesizers) and Jivraj Singh (drums, design).
