about

My girlfriend had to make a kite as a prop and, although for her purposes it didn't need to fly, we took it up on Plymouth Hoe and tried to fly it. It was a lovely looking kite, but it didn't fly. Still, I filmed a couple of short videos on my phone and then wrote this song. And I used the mobile phone video to make a little short video version of the song too... youtu.be/eZBKc5KF0ZU

lyrics

I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you
Oh I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you
And sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down
sometimes we’re flying and sometimes we’re crying
We get up again and we keep trying cos I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you...

Take you up on a grassy hill by the sea, is the kite a metaphor for you and me
No it’s not cos we’re still together, the kite didn’t fly, but I blame the weather
One minute there’s sun, then the rain and the wind comes, a day by the British coast can give you four seasons

The kite won’t fly cos the wind is too gusty
But at least that blows away anything that is fusty
If the kite is blown and the lines get tangled
Above the clouds the stars are still spangled

I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you
Oh I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you
And sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down
sometimes we’re flying and sometimes we’re crying
We get up again and we keep trying cos I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you...

I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you
Oh I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you
And sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down
sometimes we’re flying and sometimes we’re crying
We get up again and we keep trying, cos I’m high as a kite cos I’m with you...

and I’m not on drugs.

Hello. I am a musical comedian and this is where I am keeping my songs. Some of them are deliberately funny, some are just songs that I've written and if you're into my thing then you'll probably find them mildly amusing too.
