Karine Polwart – Women of the World

It’s International Women’s Day, and Ivor Cutler’s song is always what I think of on this day.


Women of the world, take over

Cause if you don’t, the world will come to an end

And we haven’t got long.¬†

Ivor Cutler – Rubber Toy

Ivor has leapt into my head. One of my favourites.

When the forest grew too big
it burst out of my toy.
Hee hee hee,
lucky me!
I gave it lots of lights,
but girls climbed up at night,
now my forest is full of girls.

Hee hee hee,
a girl on every tree!
What a lovely sight
for a little boy like me!





BONUS EARWORM: Ivor Cutler – Grass

Go and sit upon the grass and feel your lumps.



Ivor Cutler – Shoplifters

Going to an Ivor Cutler play this week. I am sorely tempted to shout LOOK! A THISTLE!
