Bernard Carney, a West Australian singer/songwriter, has written a delightful song for his grand-children - Tian, Joe and Dan. R-J has already posted one of his songs.

THE FEATHER FOOT FAIRY
(Bernard Carney)

Now gather ‘round folks, I’ll sing you a song
Of a feather foot fairy named Tian

Chorus:
She never grew old and she never grew young
She knew every song that had ever been sung
And she played in the moon and the stars and sun
And she was there when the world began
The feather foot fairy named Tian

The feathers on her feet were oh so fine
She could fly through the mists of time
She’d fly ten zillion years or more
And she often had lunch with a dinosaur
And the dinosaur’s house had the strangest things
There were butterfly bats with rainbow wings
And the hills were covered in purple trees
Where the starfish bird sang delicussly
Now ‘delicussly’ is not a real word
But it’s often used by the starfish bird
And if you’re wondering how I know
Well the feather foot fairy told me so
And she should know - ‘cos

Chorus

Now the feather foot fairy named Tian
She was there when the world began
And she watched all the oceans come and go
And her only friend was a fossil named Joe.
Now Joe was asleep for a million years
’til she woke him up with her feather foot tears
And they played in the sands of time so free
And they slept upstairs in the fossilott tree
Now the fossilot tree in quite absurd, 
But it’s often used by the starfish bird
And if you’re wondering how I know
Well the featherf oot fairy told me so
And she should know - ‘cos

Chorus

Now Tian took Joe on the trout sea trail
In a plastic boat with a polythene sail
And they dived to the bottom in an old tin can 
And met with a big seahorse called Dan
Now Dan had a pancake stuck to his bum 
And he brewed his tea in a kettle drum
And he knew every horse that lived in the sea
And he talked to them equifishously
Now ‘equifishously’ is not a real word
But it’s often used by the starfish bird
And if you’re wondering how I know
Well the feather foot fairy told me so
And she should know - ‘cos

Chorus

Now the feather foot fairy and seahorse Dan 
Took fossil Joe to the big trout dam
And they all held hands and disappeared
And travelled ahead 10 thousand years.
The future all looked a little bit blurred
But the first thing they saw was the starfish bird 
And if you’re wondering how I know
Well the feather foot fairy told me so
And she should know - ‘cos

Chorus
