about

This little song is about my tortoise, Gibbous.

lyrics

She's a little bit more than a half of a moon
Not quite full but she'll be getting there soon
She's chomping on plums
Romaine and hibiscus
She's really here
Though she seems so fictitious

She doesn't know that we call her Gibbous
She'll never know all the joy that she gives us
She’s a tortoise and her name is

Gibbous will live to be a hundred years old
She’s weird and she’s wrinkly, her blood is all cold
She’s crawls around swiftly, if we don’t watch her close
She’ll sneak up beneath you and nibble your toes

She doesn't know that we call her Gibbous
She'll never know all the joy that she gives us
If you haven’t met her yet then you gotta
Take a walk with this happy Sulcata
In her shell she can go ‘bout her business
Like contemplating complicated astrophysics

She doesn't know that we call her Gibbous
She'll never know all the joy that she gives us
She’s a tortoise and her name
Is Gibbous

about

Mercury Los Angeles, California

I write songs in my yard and record them in the bathroom. Nothing too fancy, just some things that I wanted to sing about.
