The Rrrrrockets! Melbourne, Australia

After a millennium touring the outer reaches of the solar system The Rrrrrockets decided to make Earth their new home.

Track Name: Pick It Up
crushed up cans and broken fans
rusted prams old rubber bands
a pile of wood a roll of rope still tough
i could build a billy cart with some of this stuff

a skip rope tangled up and dusty
a two wheel scooter slightly rusty
scuffed up shoes old barbecues
a little bit of love and they could be like new so

pick it up, sort it out
break it down, use it again
pick it up, sort it out

a leather ball still good for kicking
a velvet couch still good for sitting

break it down, use it again

we've only got one planet
under this sun
we better start looking after it
like it's the only one
we gota pick it, sort it out, break it down
use it again and again and again and again and again and again
we gotta pick it up
Track Name: At The Beach
summer's in our reach, the next class will be held
at the beach

spending all winter in a cold class room
hardly see the sun through the rain and gloom
dreaming of a time when the days are long
and the radio's playing that summer song

gonna catch some waves
soaking up the rays
lying on the sand
time on our hand
summer's in our reach, the next class will be held
at the beach

bare feet skipping across the hot sands
listening for the sound of the ice cream van
watermelon chunks all sweet and cool
looking for treasure in all the rock pools

gonna catch some waves
soaking up the rays
lying on the sand
time on our hand
summer's in our reach, the next class will be held
at the beach

gonna catch some waves
soaking up the rays
lying on the sand
time on our hand
gonna catch some waves
soaking up the rays
lying on the sand
time on our hand
summer's in our reach, the next class will be held
at the beach

Track Name: The Rockin' Gorilla
deep in the jungles of Borneo
lives the craziest tribe that you'll ever know
all night long from sunset to sunrise
them jungle cats like to jump and jive
the king of them all their royal rajah
the rockin' gorilla and his rockin' guitar

he was the rockin' gorilla
all the way from Manilla
he was the rockin' gorilla
listen to that monkey play

the hiphopapotomous stepped into the dj booth
spinning disks and stamping his hoofs
the chimpanzees played the bongo drums
slapping those skins with their opposable thumbs
the monkeys got funky as the horns began to play
then the rockin' gorilla just blew them away

he was the rockin' gorilla
all the way from Manilla
with his guitar he'll thrill ya
he was the rockin' gorilla
he was the rockin' gorilla
listen to that monkey play

I can hear the jungle drums beating
they're getting louder, and louder
one, two, one two three four

well now the cheetah in sneakers rapped on the microphone
baboon played a tune, on his trombone
the elephant blew on his enormous trunk it
sounded like the blast on a trumpet
the crowd was warmed up and they were ready to go
then the rockin' gorilla came on and stole the show

he was the rockin' gorilla
all the way from Manilla
with his guitar he'll thrill ya
he was the rockin' gorilla
he was the rockin' gorilla
listen to that monkey play
that rockin' gorilla
that monkey plays all night and day
that rockin' gorilla
listen to that great ape go

and then one fine day down a back alley way
