Our first ever album...

...didn't come without some trouble...

 

Sugar Rush

THE PRIMARY YEARS

This is a collection of our “early” work. Some of it is quite embarrassing, like the time when we were told to take down our song ‘Peppa Pig’ from iTunes because we used their TV character’s copyrighted name. But we didn’t let that stop us, so we rename it ‘Pep Up Pig’. Indeed, it cheered us up, specially when we saw our names all over national newspapers, including The Telegraph, Daily Mail and everywhere on the internet (try searching ‘Magician’s Nephew Band Peppa Pig’ and you’ll see…)

We don’t sing much about ‘Ice Cream’ these days, but this track got us in the St Albans International Film Festival (we entered the music video category) and gave us one of our first gigs. Talking first gigs, we really rocked the Relish Burgers Restaurant, the poor customers couldn’t talk or celebrate their birthdays properly because of the “noise”, but we learned a valuable rock’n’roll lesson – have attitude and always give 110% to the crowd, even if they can only handle about 23%...

We hope you enjoy the early sounds of the Magician’s Nephew Band, we know these songs will come back to haunt us when we are older, but hey, you’ve got to start somewhere…

THE PRIMARY YEARS

 

Ice Cream Lyrics

 

Chorus

Ice Cream, can I have my ice cream

You promised me my ice cream

I’m crazy for my ice cream

Can I have my ice cream 

 

Verse 1

Done the times tables

Practiced all my spellings

Wrote about the weekend

Sailed through my readings

 

Battled through my scales

On the black recorder

Got our neighbours growling

And the dogs all howling

 

Bridge

How can you put me through this ordeal

I’ll shout and scream but I will not kneel

I have done all you asked me to do

And now is the time to get what I’m due

 

Chorus

 

Verse 2

Tidied up my Lego

Put away the teddies

Stopped the football bashing

And the window smashing

 

Gobbled up the spinach

And the mashed potato

Broccoli was bitter

But I am not a quitter

 

Bridge

 

Chorus

Ice Cream, can I have my ice cream

You promised me my ice cream

I’m crazy for my ice cream

Can I have my Ice cream

 

 

 

Super Heroes Lyrics

 

Super heroes flying all around 

Helping people on the ground

Super heroes flying in the air 

Can’t you see them all up there

 

Super heroes we need you?

There’s a robbery at the Zoo

The tigers are missing and the leopards too

The next ones to go are the Kangoroos

 

Super heroes flying all around 

Helping people on the ground

Super heroes flying in the air 

Can’t you see them all up there

 

This is not a silly prank

There’s a riot at the bank

It is the Joker and his gang

Come and help we heard a big bang

 

The situation is looking dire

The council library is on fire

All the flames are getting higher

Please come now it is our desire

 

 

 

Bed Time Lyrics

 

I don’t wanna go to bed You don’t wanna go to bed 

We don’t wanna go oh oh oh Oh

 

Mamma tell me why I need to sleep so much

can’t you step aside  let me be the judge

If I could choose I play all day 

Can’t you let me have my way

 

I don’t wanna go to bed You don’t wanna go to bed 

We don’t wanna go oh oh oh Oh

 

Now I feel it’s  time for me to decide

Everyday the same I want to run and hide

You know it’s time I’m not a child

I’ll stay up and I won’t go wild

 

 

I don’t wanna go to bed

Got the jeebies in my head

Every night when you call

I’m not tired at all

 

I don’t wanna to go bed

And your face is turning red

Every night when you call

Feel I’m climbing the wall

 

 

 

Monday Mornings Lyrics

 

Another Monday morning and I’m going to school

My books in the bag and I feel like a mule

The schedule for the day will be heavy and tough

Sure by lunch time it will be quite enough

 

I can’t multiply and my tables are wrong

Doesn’t make a difference even singing a song

Division and addition are all over the place

In geometry my angles cause acute headache

 

But it is cool I can play guitar

It is all good I want to be a star

It’s OK we’re gonna make a stand (with our rock’n roll band)

We’ll be fine you’ll be my biggest fan

 

Back into the class we just had our break

History again oh for goodness sake

Henry and the wives are the topic on show

Naughty Anne Boleyn is the only one I know

 

Why can’t we study our future instead

Rumours from the past never stick in my head

Grammar and spellings doesn’t make any sense

Future’s not simple and the past is all tense

 

But it is cool I can play the guitar

It is all good I want to be a star

It’s OK we’re gonna make a stand (with our rock’n roll band)

We’ll be fine you’ll be my biggest fan

 

I’m gonna play the guitar In my rock’n’roll band

I’m gonna make it far I’m gonna be a star

 

 

 

 

Peppa Pig Lyrics

 

My friends have lost their faith

They will scream it to your face

In the playground of our school

Peppa Pig’s no longer cool

 

We all bought your DVDs

You were the greatest on TV

We had so much joy

You were my favorite toy

 

Peppa Pig Peppa Pig 

Why aren’t you funny anymore

Peppa Pig Peppa Pig 

You made us laugh so much before 

Peppa Pig I’m over you I’m in year 4

Peppa Pig I just don’t love you any more

 

 

I don’t mean to be cruel 

But you’re not coming with me to school

The times we shared were fine

Now we need to draw the line

 

I know this must be hard

And I mean no disregard

Let’s go our separate ways

You and me were just a phase
