A girl and a double bass.

Gabriel’s Kid Brother

(E.Frencham)

Golden unashamed
a sweet refrain
Indigo sighs a lullaby
Folding Paper Cranes
and aeroplanes
and dragonflies that really fly
You amuse and amaze
confuse and faze
bemuse and daze and dazzle and delight
Never impatient for the lights to go green
Opportunity is everything
Keep time while the traffic sings

Did you know? Gabriel’s got a kid brother
Living in Clifton Hill
Did you know? Gabriels got a kid brother
and even if smiles could kill I’ll live forever

Older than your years
Unfazed by tears
you let me cry ’til I feel fine
Younger than your days
little boy ways
and soon I’m fine enough to fly
I’m amused and amazed
confused and fazed
bemused and dazed and dazzled by the light
Telling me gently
‘Let your dreams come true
opportunity will shine anew
Girl, I believe in you’

Did you know? Gabriel’s got a kid brother
Living in Clifton Hill
Did you know? Gabriels got a kid brother
and even if smiles could kill I’ll live forever
I’ll live forever (on the memory
of your laughter that afternoon)
and even if looks could drown
I’ll jump off that pier at St Kilda
And I’ll walk on water!

Ella Bella Cinderella
Soaring inside like a heavenly cello
(Now I know Gabriel’s kid brother)
singing the smile of a fella named Vella
Angel in Melbourne town

Ella Bella Cinderella
Stepping in style with Gene Kelly’s umbrella
Freed by the smile of a fella named Vella

Angel in Melbourne town
