Don’t forget your shovel if you want to go to work

Half these songs are about you… by Nizlopi has been my favourite album of the last year, and it looks like they are finally starting to make the break… I believe JCB is released for Christmas… it deserves to be No.1 – I love the song, and the lyrics are just so lovely…

JCB
Luke Concannon – Nizlopi

Well, I’m rumblin’ in this JCB.
I’m 5 years old and my dad’s a giant sitting beside me.
And the engine rattles my bum like berserk
While we’re singin, ‘Don’t forget your shovel if you want to go to work!’

My dad’s probably had a bloody hard day
But he’s been good fun and bubblin and jokin’ away
And the procession of cars stuck behind
are gettin all impatient and angry, but we dont mind.

An’ we’re holdin up the bypass – oh
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
Sittin on the toolbox – oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school
Oh no…

And we pull over to let cars past
And pull off again, speedin by the summer green grass
And we’re like giants up here in our big yellow digger
Like zoids, or transformers, or maybe even bigger

And I wanna transform into a Tyrannosaurus Rex!
And eat up all the bullies and the teachers and their pets
And I’ll tell all my mates that my dad’s B.A. Baracus
Only with a JCB and Bruce Lee’s nunchuckas

And We’re holdin up the bypass – oh
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
Sittin on the toolbox – oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school

And we’re holdin up the bypass – oh oh
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
I’m sittin on the toolbox – oh oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, Boss
So glad I’m not in school

Said I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round

And we’re holdin’ up the bypass – woah
Me and my dad havin a top laugh – oh woah
And I’m sittin on the toolbox – oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, Boss
So glad I’m not in school

Aw, I said

I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his

Aw, I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee,
Drives me round in his JCB

  1. Did you know that the line ‘Don’t forget your shovel …..’ comes from a song by the same name that was written by 60 year old Irish singer songwriter Christie Hennessy.
    Christie recorded 4 platinum albums and then, disillusioned with the ‘music biz’ went back to work on building sites for eight years. Our indie label MVine persuaded him out of songwriting retirement to record a new album last year. The album, Stories for Sale, is released in the UK on March 17th 06 and the Irish Press are already calling it ‘Christie’s best album to date’. If you want any more info about this, just contact me, or you can check out Christie’s website, http://www.christiehennessy.com. He loves to hear from people.
