Biography

SHILLOO'S TREE has a long history and story to tell but to cut it short here is a resume . Some nine years ago three friends started jamming and playing neverending instrumentals , just for the fun of it. As time went by the band members felt the need to recruit a vocalist which would make there music more accessible to the people. Many vocalists came and went but none fitted in some way or another with the other three members. Then the unimaginable happened , SHILLOO'S TREE managed to find the long awaited vocalist . From then onwards the band started writing more new material and building their repertoire with the aim of performing live locally. The band members are as follows , Max on Vocals , Gabriel on guitars , Kevin on bass and Stefan on drums. The style of music as described by the band members is Bastard Funk, whatever that may mean? The main objective of the Band is writing original material , but also performing cover versions with a twist. . It's a band about friendship, fun and original music.

Lyrics

Gang Bang Meringue

Written By: Max Dingli

Drove a red limousine
To the ice-cream machine
Ordered double chocolate chip
With some extra cream

Saw a man with no teeth
Nearly dead on his feet
He told me ‘Son won’t you walk with me
‘to savour the treat!’

I answered ‘Man who d’you take me for’
‘A fool or what?’
He said ‘You don’t wanna miss it,
‘Get it while it’s hot!’

I said ‘Fool, what you sayin?
‘You’re not making sense!’
He told me ‘Why don’t you try it?
‘The feeling’s so intense!’

I went along with this crazy,
Walked for many miles
but when we found the place
I just couldn’t believe my eyes

There was a big fat lady
(if you could call her that)
Wearing top to bottom
Just a smile and a hat

She spread her arms open wide
Beckoned me to come by her side
She moved, her belly rippled with the tide
She told me ‘Honey baby
‘Won’t you come for a ride?’

It’s the Gang Bang Meringue
All flavours, full fat
You can have it with your coffee
If you like it like that

Ain’t no diet version
Of this sweet perversion
It’ll have you smiling wider
Than a Cheshire pussycat

I looked at my new friend
And said ‘This sugar’s sweet!’
He answered ‘Why d’you think
‘that I ain’t got no teeth?’

‘But come on now, say Grace
‘Coz you ain’t got all day
‘There’s a mile-long queue
‘for this all-you-can-eat-buffet!’

I looked behind and saw
This guy had said the truth
Coz there were 300 men
And they all had a sweet tooth

They were black and white
There was a Chinaman too
Someone had brought their dog
In fact there were quite a few

The lady smiled and said
‘You’re holding up the line
‘So please keep moving
‘and don’t waste my time.’

I stepped aside and said
‘I think I’ll pass on dessert
‘coz its hypercalorific
‘and it’s gotta hurt.’

She slapped my face, threw me aside
Sat down on me until I nearly died
She moved, but by then my hands were tied
Did things I didn’t want her to
Until I cried

It’s the Gang Bang Meringue
All flavours, full fat
You can have it with your coffee
If you like it like that

Ain’t no diet version
Of this sweet perversion
It’ll have you smiling wider
Than a Cheshire pussycat

(señorita bonita con las nalgas grandes
¿por qué usted me lastima tan?
usted sabe que no pedí esto
lánceme por favor
y le daré freí el pollo
gratuitamente)

Welcome to the Gang Bang Meringue
We’ve got
Silver service
(Yes sir, you rang?)
Everybody’s here to do their creamy thang
Leave your money by the door in the slot (ch-chang!)

You can leave your clothes on, but they might get wet
Got a sign outside: ‘No-one dissatisfied yet!’
If you’re looking for fun, we got your safest bet
It’s a five-course meal that you will never forget

It’s the gang bang meringue the gang bang meringue the gang bang meringue the gang bang meringue the gang bang meringue the gang bang meringue the gang bang meringue (Shilloo’s Tree rock the house…..Gang Bang Meringue….yeah)

psycho bitch from hell

Written By: Max Dingli

You make me tea when I come to your place
I look at you; you’ve such an ordinary face
But somewhere it seems your sanity’s been displaced
Gone away

I feel uneasy when I see your smile
When we shake hands it always hurts for a while
Maybe it’s time to face that I’m in denial
So I’ll say

That’s why your daughter’s a psycho bitch from hell
You know what that means coz you’re one as well
I know what oozes out when you crack your shell
Of hate, but by then it’s too late

With you there’s no Jekyll, there’s only Hyde
Your cheeks are rosy but there’s evil inside
I never realized until I tried
To escape

Because your daughter’s a psycho bitch from hell
You know what that means coz you’re one as well
I know what oozes out when you crack your shell
Of hate, but by then it’s too late

You know your daughter’s a psycho bitch from hell
You know what that means coz you’re one as well
I know what oozes out when you crack your shell
Of hate, but by then it’s too late

Breakfast Serial

Written By: Max Dingli

I’m a teacher at a kindergarten
A founding member of the pta
I teach the children how to say their prayers
I send them home safe at the end of the day

Can’t remember when it started
I mean the voices running through my head
It must have been about last august
Coz that’s when I found bodies in my shed

In my shed, all dead

I always knew that I was something special
Because my mummy always called me sweet
When I was 5 I lit my first campfire
And that’s when mummy must have felt the heat

I feel quite sorry about the neighbour’s spaniel
But now he’s pushing daisies underground
I had a best friend from next door named Daniel
The police say that he might never be found

My best friend, he’s dead

My cd set is always neat
I leave a little space coz it’s not complete
I brush my teeth 6 times a day
Coz I worry a lot about tooth decay

Coz I’m a serial killer, a coffin filler
I’m a mother-loving psycho from your favourite thriller
A serial killer, a real skull driller
I’m a down to earth, hard working, honest, true-life chiller

I used to entertain at my apartment
Until my guests started to disappear
I’d tie them down into my special armchair
I’d gag them so the neighbours wouldn’t hear

I never had a problem with my landlord
He used to check that everything was fine
Now he’s a stylish leather bedside lampshape
And he can check upon me all the time

Near my bed, he’s dead

My cd set……………….

Coz I’m a serial killer……….

(solo)

Coz I’m a serial killer ……….

You think that I’m a monster
I just want love and cuddles
It’s sad that you are scared coz
I make nice wet red puddles of blood

In my head, all dead

Jam

Written By: Max Dingli

Spread it on my morning toast
Choose the flavour I like most
Just before I check the post
I eat jam
(jam)

(jam)
Goes quite nicely with my tea (jam)
I buy one and I get one free (jam)
Honey please just let me be
With my jam

I don’t want butter, ham or fine imported creamy cheese
There’s nothing else but jam, just give it to me please

Give me some sticky stuff
(Any kind will do)
I just can’t get enough
(Of the fruity goo)
I’m gonna get quite rough
(and I’m warning you)
I need my jam

Now you’ve emptied all the jar (jam)
And my dear you’ve gone too far (jam)
And I’ll find out where you are
Coz I need my jam

Coz I’ve got a craving for (jam)
Anything you’ve got and more (jam)
Gonna take it till I’m sore
Give me your jam

I know it’s naughty but I just can’t seem to help myself
Just get that jam down off the shelf

Give me some sticky stuff
(Any kind will do)
I just can’t get enough
(Of the fruity goo)
I’m gonna get quite rough
(and I’m warning you)
I need my jam

Gimme some more
Gimme some more
Gimme some more
I need more jam

Everybody needs a little sweet treat
Keeps a man from falling off of his feet
Whether it is smooth or thick or chunky
Bring your jam around and we’ll get funky

Give me some sticky stuff
(Any kind will do)
I just can’t get enough
(Of the fruity goo)
I’m gonna get quite rough
(and I’m warning you)
I need my jam

Give me some sticky stuff
(Any kind will do)
I just can’t get enough
(Of the fruity goo)
I’m gonna get quite rough
(and I’m warning you)
I need my jam

Gimme some more
Gimme some more
Gimme some more
I need more jam
