Leo, we're happy that you're well. You're not going to hell. And even when you die There'll be a Heaven in the beautiful big sky So instead of having a wake Have a beautiful big doggy-cake And Leo, just rest your sleepy head Cos we're happy that you're not dead And you are a dog, But Leo, you're my g-d. I love you Leo

Birthday Man You were my only friend in the whole world And then you went and fell off a cliff. Birthday Man You were the man who is my friend and took me in But now I don't know when you're going to stop Falling away from me, Falling away from me. Birthday Man You've got some birthday bread on top of you head Do you know it's there? You never mention it much. You are great! You're my greatest friend in the world Hey! You're Birthday Man I'm a Birthday Boy And together we're a Birthday Family, Family, Away From Me (I hope you stop falling at some point soon)

Always falling man, Tumbling over without any plan, Falling as free and far as he can. He’s always falling man. Always falling, An appalling calling! Airborn as a starling, Always Falling Man. Birthday bread for falling man Bake it up in a tub or a pan Birthday day, and he’s falling away Never know what a person’ll say to an Always Falling Man

All the boys Are coming down for Birthday Boy All the girls Are comin down for Birthday Boy Too late mama This kiddy’s not a toy Well I gotta birthday cake A joy to bake And birthday bread Upon my head For all of you to enjoy! And I’m gonna go away and write a letter Telling you I think you better call me the blue suede boy And now I’m tellin you again This kiddy’s not a toy! All the boys Are coming down for Birthday Boy All the girls Are comin down for Birthday Boy Too late mama This kiddy’s not a toy Down by the shore, Where we see the people playin' Forevermore With a breadin and birthdayin' In the sea, When I’m feelin down That’s where I’ll be With all the kids in town (that’s when you see) All the boys Are coming down for Birthday Boy All the girls Are comin down for Birthday Boy Too late mama This kiddy’s not a toy In the sun When the fish all play, Having fun I could do this every day. It’s never too late Cos Summer’s never goin’ away!

about

Every six weeks or so, Birthday Bread Man and Birthday Boy come to my house, and I film a new new batch of their episodes. You can find most of them here: www.youtube.com/channel/UC3cUcGElMHVlJnwvFeLw_rA

I spend the next week or ten days editing them, often adding music as required. Here are some of the songs - the ones from the background, and the ones Birthday Boy sings.

As more episodes are made, more tracks will be added. Let me know if anything that ought to be on the soundtrack album is missing, dear listeners.
