We are the Banzai Buddy Band! We are the Banzai Buddy Band! And we like to play our instruments. We sing our songs across the land Just for people like you and you and you and you and you and you and you. Who's that boy on the electric guitar? Come on tell us just who you are. My name is Mike and I play the guitar. I played it today for 24 hours. There's a feeling in my loins and it's out of control, I think that feeling is Rock and Roll. Who's that girl on the bass guitar? We'd all like to know who you are. My name is Laura and I like my bass. I like to twiddle the knobs, I think they're ace. I like to count the many frets. I like it better than having sex. We are the Banzai Buddy Band! And we like to play our instruments. We sing our songs across the land Just for people like you and you and you and you and you and you and you. Who's that girl? The scatting queen. Her dulcet tones are supreme. 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2 , 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. Argh, argh, argh, argh Please! I want some money! And some chocolate! Skip skap, scabba do whee-ya. Who's that boy on the rhythm machine? Is he real, or is he a dream? My name is Milo and I keep the beat. I just use my fingers, not my hands and feet. I don't need sticks or drums or cymbals, But it's quite hard on my fingers I could do with some thimbles. We are the Banzai Buddy Band! And we like to play our instruments. We sing our songs across the land Just for people like you and you and you and you and you and you and you. And you. xxx

Pocket Calculator I’m working in the office, I’m here from 9 till 5 I haven’t any friends, sometimes I wish I weren’t alive. I’ve got a lot of money, I add it up each week With my pocket calculator what I borrowed off Pete. I like to spend Friday night and Saturday night too, Adding up the figures, there is plenty you can do. It can be rather fun inputting 43110 When you turn it upside down it says ‘hello.’ (stop – triangle) I love my pocket calculator I love my pocket calculator I love my pocket calculator Oh yes I do Du du du du dur, du du du du dur Du du du du dur, du du du du dur Du du du du dur, du du du du dur I really like my calculator, It’s just like a friend It talks to me when I am sad, bad feelings it will mend. I really like my calculator, I hope it likes me too I keep it in my top pocket for everyone to view. I love my pocket calculator I love my pocket calculator I love my pocket calculator Oh yes I do Guitar Solo I love my pocket calculator I love my pocket calculator I love my pocket calculator Oh yes I do

In The Lair Of The Dungeon-Master In ancient mystic times When magic ruled the Earth There lived the wizard Merlin And he sang to me this verse He danced a merry dance While fingering his beard And he told me of a place Where evil spirits live… The dungeons and dragons lair. Die by the sword Casting a spell Search for the keys To the gates of Hell Drinking the blood Of the virgin vampire Climbing the tower Ten thousand miles higher Offering my soul To the Gods of destruction Enslaved by the darkness Of Satan's construction Lucifer's flame Burns a hole in the sun No fear in my blood, Til the battle is won. Look out, my friend For I am the Dungeon-Master. Dungeons and dragons, The vison, the passion. Witchcraft and castles And soft little kittens Death and destruction Evil and danger A troll sings the tune to Away in a Manger High on a mountain The devil is killing Whipping and chaining His mistress and vixen Vengence is his Fighting fire with fire War, death and killing, My greatest desire. Look out, my friend For I am the Dungeon-Master. [Musical interlude] No fear in my blood, Til the battle is won. Look out, my friend For I am the Dungeon-Master.

I Like A Little Bit Of Maths In The Morning I like a little bit of maths in the morning I like a little bit of maths in the morning I like it when the maths is hard I like it when it’s algebra And when there’s decimals to play with There’s so many things inside my head Sometimes I wish they’d go away And let me play just like the other girls in my class But then again… I like a little bit of maths in the morning I like a little bit of maths in the morning The other kids that are in my class They like to tease me and have a laugh ‘Cos while I’m working out my sums They all are out at parties having fun And drinking whiskey, gin and rum And making out with boys They tell me it’s much more fun And they all say… I like a little bit of lovin’ in the morning I like a little bit of lovin’ in the morning But I don’t care what they all say ‘Cos I like fractions in the same way I get excited by the numbers When I multiply inside my head And find the answers come to me And I can hardly breathe I get this feeling inside And that is why… I like a little bit of maths in the morning I like a little bit of maths in the morning Yes, I like a little bit of maths in the morning I like a little bit of maths in the morning

about

Hello, good people of the world.

We are the Banzai Buddy Band. We met at High School when we were 13. Mike was a genius, Laura was a maths geek and Milo was obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons. Laura was only really interested in her pocket calculator and had never been with a boy before and Mike had never had a girlfriend but they got together at the Christmas school disco (although they had to be very careful about Laura’s allergies). They then met Milo (The Rhythm Machine) and formed the Banzai Buddy Band! and the rest is history…
