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…

Track Name: We Are The Banzai Buddy Band!
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
Track Name: I Love My Pocket Calculator
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

Track Name: Genius Boy
Genius Boy

Well I’m a computer genius
I just turned 13
I’m a bit of a whizz, yep
If you know what I mean

I got a PhD
And a Masters Degree
A Postgraduate diploma
And 50 GCSEs

I got grade 8 piano
Oboe, flute and violin
I got gold in modern dancing
Ballet, tap and swing

I finished school at 7
I went to Oxford for my degree
I got a black belt in ninjitsu
There’s no-one quite like me

That’s ‘cos I’m a genius
And I’m just 13
My mum thinks I’m amazin’
The greatest thing she’s ever seen

I really am a genius
And I’m just 13
My mum thinks I’m incredible
My mind’s like a machine

I’m a chess grand-master
Was World Champion at 6
At sport no-one runs faster
I can do Paul Daniels magic tricks

I can do the Rubik’s cube in 15 seconds
The Times crossword in 8
There’s nothin’ I can’t do
I really am quite great

That’s ‘cos I’m a genius
And I’m just 13
My mum thinks I’m amazin’
The greatest thing she’s ever seen

I really am a genius
And I’m just 13
My mum thinks I’m incredible
My mind’s like a machine.
Track Name: In The Lair Of The Dungeon Master
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.
Track Name: 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 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
Track Name: The Allergy Song
The Allergy Song

I can’t believe that you like me
You make me radioactive
But I need to know know what you had for tea
Because I’m anaphylactic

I had dairy, eggs and gluten
And I may contain nut traces
But don’t worry I got my toothbrush
To remove the food from my braces

Allergies, allergies
Living with my allergies
Kiss me please
I’m not diseased
Learn to love my allergies

I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction

The thrill of kissing you
Is gonna give me a heart faliure
So hurry, come quick!
Get my ventolin inhaler

Okay, I think the time is right
You make me feel unhinged
I can feel that you’re excited now
Or is that your adrenalin syringe

Allergies, allergies
Living with my allergies
Kiss me please
I’m not diseased
Learn to love my allergies

I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction

Coughing and wheezing interlude
Guitar solo

I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
I think I’m having a reaction
Track Name: Kiss Me, Darling (It's Christmas Time)
Kiss Me, Darling (It’s Christmas Time)

Kiss me, darling (it’s Christmas time)
While the lights are low
Let’s not miss this chance for romance
Never let me go

Kiss me, kiss me

I’ve been watching you
At your computer
But I’ve been too shy to talk to you

Please will you be my love tutor
I’ve saved all my ram for you

I’ve had one shandy too many
Your trousers are looking quite tight
I’ve noticed that you’ve not had any
But this could be your lucky night
Ooh ooh ooh

Kiss me, darling (it’s Christmas time)
While the lights are low
Let’s not miss this chance for romance
Never let me go

Kiss me, kiss me

The magic tricks that you’ve been performing
In the corner; all on your own
Could this be a love warning
I’m not going home alone

I’ve been watching your moves on the dancefloor
Your teeth and your braces are yellow
Your skin is pasty, your physique is poor
But you’re quite an attractive fellow
Ooh ooh ooh

Kiss me, darling (it’s Christmas time)
While the lights are low
Let’s not miss this chance for romance
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

So come on over, babe
The moment is now
I wanna hold you
Like, oh my gosh, wow!

So come on over, babe
The moment is now
I wanna hold you
Like, oh my gosh, wow!

Kiss me, kiss me
Kiss me, kiss me
Kiss me
Track Name: Never Had A Girlfriend
Never Had A Girlfriend

Well here I am on the dancefloor
I’m staring at my shoes
But I'm looking ace in my glasses
National Health, I love you

I gotta dance, I gotta make a move
To Impress that girl
But the only move I can think of
Is bishop to e4, check! You lose!

She's coming over to me
I got nowhere to run
She looks like lieutenant Uhura
Set phasers to stun

She asks me if I want to dance
I don't know what to say
I try some robotics and say ‘will you be my girlfriend?’, she says
'No freakin’ way'

Never
No, never
Never had a girlfriend

I wonder why she don't like me
I think I'm pretty cool
Ok maybe I've got some dandruff
But I know how to use a slide rule

Let's have a conversation
Stop! I like you. Please don't run
We could talk about comics or science or maths or computers or Star Trek or
ninjas or virii and/or bacterii
Don't you think we'd have fun?

She's coming over to me
Nowhere to run
She looks like lieutenant Uhura
Set phasers to stun

It's now half past seven
Robot wars is on BBC2
But don’t worry I've set my video to record it
So I can make love to you

Never
No, never
Never had a girlfriend

Never
Never have I ever
Never had a girlfriend
