Banana Pancakes

by Mitch on 27/06/2005

Things have been insane lately. I know I say it all the time, but it just seems to get worse and worse. I am taking on way too much, I know I am, but life just seems to be so terrific at the moment, I don’t want to stop. Just a quick post to say that I am going to try and do some writing soon and to share some lyrics to an awesome song I’ve recently been playing repetitively in iTunes.

Jack Johnson, In Between Dreams – Banana Pancakes

Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’
There ain’t no need to go outside

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you
this song It’s meant to keep you
From doin’ what you’re supposed to
Like wakin’ up too early
Maybe we could sleep in
I’ll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’
There ain’t no need to go outside

But just maybe, hala ka ukulele
Mama made a baby
I really don’t mind the practice
Because you’re my little lady
Lady, lady love me

Because I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains

Pretend like there’s no world outside
And we could pretend that all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just raining
There ain’t no need to go outside

Ain’t no need, ain’t no need
Can’t you see, can’t you see

Rain all day and I don’t mind

The telephone singing, ringing, it’s too early
Don’t pick it up
We don’t need to
We got everything we need right here
And everything we need is enough
It’s just so easy
When the whole world fits inside of your arms

Do we really need to pay attention to the alarm
Wake up slow, wake up slow

But baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this song
It’s meant to keep you
From doin’ what your supposed to
Like wakin’ up too early
Maybe we could sleep in

I’ll make you banana pancakes

Pretend like it’s the weekend now
And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just rainin’
There ain’t no need to go outside

Ain’t no need, ain’t no need
Rain all day and I really, really, really don’t mind
Can’t you see, can’t you see

We’ve got to wake up slow

    You are allowed to say no sometimes – people won’t hate you for it. Look at me for instance – I do bugger all.

    Mitch, this has nothing to do with your posting. But, since I don’t have your email address, cos you change it more than you do your clothes (smelly bastard), I have to let you know here. I have a question. I need to purchase a switch for my school, one that will flick between two different towers manually. One tower will run an XP system, the other a DOS. So I need to find something that can feed those into the one monitor, mouse and keyboard, and just toggle between. Do you know what I mean??? If so can you email me back and let me know. If not, then just email me back and say g’day. I’m stuck, thanks for your help buddy.
    PS Jack Johnson is the bomb, as it that album. I like Staple It Together, myself, but Banana Pancakes is well up there!

    Mitch, that’s why you my boy! I had no idea checking that stuff on the net. You rule, you may have just saved me my job. Not really, but now I am gonna look like I know my stuff, which of course I do. Cheers, Matey!
