Nizlopi - JCB

OK, fab song this.

It's actually another one from the car journey with Bob.

It's a truly beautiful song about parent - child relationships, about childhood, about idolising your Father.

The song has a website here, and the band's website is here.

The single's released on Monday, and if you buy it and post off the proof of purchase you can win a private gig with the band in your own living room with all your friends.

Get the song here.


Well I'm rumbling in this JCB
I'm five years old and my Dad's a giant sitting beside me
And the engine rattles my bum like berserk
While we're singing "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 getting all impatient and angry but we don't mind


We're holding up the bypass
Me and my Dad having a top laugh
Sitting on the toolbox
And I'm so glad I'm not in school boss
Glad I'm not in school, oh no

And we pull over to let cars pass
And pull off again speeding by this summer green grass
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 my Dad's BA Baracus
Only with a JCB and Bruce Lee's nunchuckas


Said I'm Luke, I'm five and my Dad's Bruce Lee
Drives my round in his JCB
