Sticky Jazz

This song is by Shriekback and appears on the album Big Night Music (1986).

Wider than the sea - bigger than my big canoe and me
Blacker than a bullet - shiny as the stars we cannot find
And the blue, blue music - nothing ever was so sweet
Everything is fine: Higher Mathematics of the mind...

Surianamaska - like a little lizard in the sun
Take as much as you need; there's enough for everyone
Living for the night-time - taking the bandage from the eyes
Hanging with the moth-men: everybody's favourite disguise...

All the little background noises
All the little children sing
Fiddle with the wooden Jesus - it's a special kind of thing...
All the little background noises
All the little children sing
All the little Greek-boys know there is a time for everything

(And they sing:)
Do-do the cruel immersion: do-do the flaming tongue
Do-do the holy mash-up: (something for everyone)
Do-do the fiery furnace: do-do the sticky jazz
Do-do the holy motion: (we want what everybody has)

Everybody scatter pretty little flowers on the floor
Higher education - never seen a world like this before
Say arrivaderci - see you when the orchestra arrives:
Play the Big Night Music; sweeter than the honey in your hive...

All the little background noises
All the little children sing
Fiddle with the wooden Jesus - it's a special kind of thing...
All the little background noises
All the little children sing
All the little Greek-boys know there is a time for everything

(And they sing:)
Do-do the cruel immersion: do-do the flaming tongue
Do-do the holy mash-up: (something for everyone)
Do-do the fiery furnace: do-do the sticky jazz
Do-do the holy motion: (we want what everybody has)

Do-do the cruel immersion: do-do the flaming tongue
Do-do the holy mash-up: (something for everyone)
Do-do the fiery furnace: do-do the sticky jazz
Do-do the holy motion: (we want what everybody has)

...Do-do the cruel immersion: do-do the flaming tongue
...Do-do the holy mash-up: (something for everyone)
...Do-do the cruel immersion: do-do the flaming tongue
...Do-do the holy mash-up: (something for everyone)

...Do-do the cruel immersion: do-do the flaming tongue
...Do-do the holy mash-up: (something for everyone)
