Island Time

Island Time

words and music by David Fuglie

Band Name: Didgericruise

It’s 20 below on this New Jersey afternoon
Hernandez looks out of place in his winter boots
He’s wearin a smile or could he be denial?
But If you talk a while he’ll say

Chorus
I think on island time palm trees swayin’ meringue playing there’s no complaining on island time someone is saying lets go drinkin’ presidente’s till 2:00 a.m.

He spends his days washing hair at his friend’s salon
To pay the rent with some extra to send home.
He’s payin’ his dues to make his dreams come true
What does he do to survive?

Chorus
He dreams of island time palm trees swayin’ meringue playing there’s no complaining on island time someone is saying let’s go drinkin’ presidente’s till 2:00 a.m.

Soon he’ll be back in Sosua with Juanita
With plenty of pesos saved for their future
Until that day, he’ll work and slave away
He can hardly wait for that to arrive

Chorus
When he can live on island time palm trees swayin’ meringue playing there’s no complaining on island time someone is saying lets go drinkin’ presidente’s let’s go drinkin presidente’s let’s go drinkin presidents and Hernandez I’m buyin.

Plane

Written By: David Fuglie

Whenever we get off a plane from Bamako to Bahrain We’re struck at the variety of all the rhythms and the melodies
From reggae to rembitka , roma, ska, mazurka, samba, bossa, flamenco, zoukous and zydeco
We dance to the rhythm of different drummers play notes from scales of different numbers
in concert halls, market stalls brothels, bars and festivals So grab your instrument let’s have fun musicians’ work is never done
Our mission still remains the same, make the world a better place
So bring out the djembe rosin up the bow Tune that bouzouki it’s a bit too low
Let’s start with a tune on the violin How bout a little bluegrass to kick things in.
Mark likes the sound of Afrobeat. When he adds the didge it’s a sugary treat
But what I like best is his beat box after three beers he really takes off
We're gonna give Mark another go and give that didgeridoo a blow
Show us some of that circular breathing Tell us a tale of Aboriginal dreaming
So whenever you get off a plane from Singapore to Adelaide
tune in to the music of the people you see it'll add to the meaning of your journey
From reggae to rembitka, roma, ska, mazurka, samba, bossa, flamenco, zoukous and zydeco
We dance to the rhythm of different drummers play notes from scales of different numbers
in concert halls, market stalls brothels, bars and festivalsSo grab your instrument let’s have fun musicians’ work is never done Our mission still remains the same, make the world a better place. Whenever we get off a plane. . .

Tango

Written By: David Fuglie

Here is some advice for you senoritas looking for an hombre with mucho pesos So you can have a casa in San Francisco and drive a lowrider like a Gran Torino Put your hands on his hips and ask him to do the tango. Place your face near his lips and whisper you’re ready to let go Now slide up and down him like an elevator tell him that you love him then say see you later Act more evil than Darth Vader. That’s how Maria got her man. I was on vacation in Buenos Aires sipping marguerites on the hotel terrace. When the waiter said I have someone here to meet you she has the type of body guaranteed to please you Chorus
Now I am married with dos bambinos living in my casa in San Francisco With her madre her padre and their tres amigos. They all take turns driving my Gran Torino Chorus

Didgeriblues

Written By: David Fuglie

The bass, the drums, the saxophone, the electric guitar, you can leave ‘em at home.
All you need to play the blues are three main chords and an attitude.
We’re goin’ to Australia. We’re goin’ to Australia. We’re goin’ to Australia to play the didgeriblues.
Freddie King, Elmore James, Howlin’ Wolf, and Stevie Ray.
They could all bend the strings. Betcha they never jammed with this here thing.
We’re goin’ to Australia. We’re goin’ to Australia. We’re goin’ to Australia to play the didgeriblues
The didgeridoo goes way down low. Believe it or not it only plays one note.
It shakes your body from your head to your toes. That’s where you find the Aboriginal soul
We’re goin’ to Australia. We’re goin’ to Australia. We’re goin’ to Australia to play the didgeriblues.

En Afrique

Written By: David Fuglie

J’aime les filles de Conakry. Elles sont si belles et très gentilles.
Elles me répondent quand je dis « venez avec moi ».
Elles ne parlent que français sauf quelque mots en anglais.
Rien n’est tellement compliqué parce qu’elles sont très sympas.
(chorus) En Afrique se trouve les filles les plus jolies En Afrique je voudrais y aller
En Afrique se trouve les filles les plus gentilles En Afrique j’aime bien retourner

Brazza, Ouaga, Niamey, Bujumbura, Yaounde,
Kinshasa, Dakar, Bamako, Elles sont toutes sympas.
Elles ne parlent que français sauf quelque mots en anglais
Rien n’est tellement compliqué parce qu’ elles sont très sympas.
Chorus
J’aime les filles de Conakry. Elles sont si belles et très gentilles.
Elles me répondent quand je dis « venez avec moi ».
Elles ne parlent que français sauf quelque mots en anglais
Rien n’est tellement compliqué parce qu’ elles sont très sympas.
Chorus

Brazilian Fantasy

Written By: David Fuglie

. Brazilian Fantasy (Julieta Miranda, pokes fun at us in Portuguese as we express our Brazilian fantasies with Bossa Nova chords and rhythms. Note Mark’s vocal imitation of a qweeka).
May you pass your nights dancing the samba and singing Brazilian songs, and spend your days in Copacabana watching the girls in their thongs.

Fiddle and the Didgeridoo

Written By: David Fuglie

Fiddle and Didgeridoo/St. Anne’s Reel (Here is a warning to parents whose children express interest in becoming a professional didgeridoo or fiddle player. We follow it with another bluegrass standard, St. Anne’s Reel). At 17, I left school. The books were dull, and the teachers weren’t cool. The only thing that I could do was play the fiddle and the didgeridoo. When I turned 25, there wasn’t very much that I hadn’t yet tried. But there was still a place where I thrived, that was playin’ the fiddle and the didgeridoo. At 33, Mom kicked me out. Said “Son ya gotta learn how fend for yourself.”
But the very worst thing she that she ever coulda done was to trash my fiddle and the didgeridoo.
Now that I am on my own. I make cold calls on the telephone. I live in a shack all alone. No money for a fiddle or the didgeridoo.
If I could turn the hands of time, I’d go back to that home of mine. I’d study hard and social climb and to hell with the fiddle and the didgeridoo At 17, I left school. The books were dull and the teachers weren’t cool. The only thing that I could do was play the fiddle and the didgeridoo.

Bob Marley

Written By: David Fuglie


Late last night instead of counting sheep I put on some Marley to help me sleep
I heard Exodus, Stir It Up, Three Little Birds and Could You Be Loved
Then in the middle of my dream, he was there sitting next to me.
So I asked him for his recipe for makin’ music that changes the world

Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley


Get Born in Jamaica and raised in Trenchtown x2
Form a band with Bunny and Pete & gig in Kingston till your fingers bleed
Get born in Jamaica, the rest comes naturally

Now Bob tell that’s not true cause getting reborn is something I can’t do
I’m simple man from America with no bones to pick with anyone
But I love the sound of that reggae beat without it my life’s incomplete
Can you just share one more thing to give me another clue?
Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley Say something
Bob Marley

Get Stranded in London and find Chris Blackwell x2
Mix a bit of rock steady with a pinch of ska a teaspoon of ganja ,a cup of Rasta
Get Stranded in London the rest comes naturally

Now when musicians take the stage remember what he had to say
and keep in mind it’s hard to be someone he’d call worthy.
but the most important thing to know when playing songs that Marley wrote
is that there's so much more than just strummin' chords and singin the melody (pick it up)
Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley Say something Bob Marley Say something
