"The Little Blue Bus is the debut album from Michael O’Halloran, celebrated Australian singer/songwriter (and former primary school teacher). It’s a 14 track collection of folk songs filled with gorgeous harmonies, lilting fiddle, washes of dobro (a resonator guitar), sweet mandolin and banjo and tells the tales of life in Australia, from the desert to the ocean…"

Here you can listen to one of Michael’s songs from the album called The Gulf of Carpentaria

MP3 Recording of The Gulf of Carpentaria

The Gulf of Carpentaria (Lyrics)

We were rowing up the river near The Gulf of Carpentaria,
We were hot and we were hungry and it was Tuesday afternoon.
A crocodile was in the river near The Gulf Of Carpentaria
And she hadn’t had her breakfast and it was Tuesday afternoon.
We stopped to rest up the river near The Gulf Of Carpentaria,
We unpacked our picnic basket and it was Tuesday afternoon.
The crocodile in the river near The Gulf Of Carpentaria
Could smell our picnic basket and it was Tuesday afternoon.
The crocodile left the river near The Gulf Of Carpentaria,
She climbed aboard our little rowboat and it was Tuesday afternoon.
We asked the croc from the river near The Gulf Of Carpentaria
If she’d like a pickled onion and it was Tuesday afternoon.
We all went rowing up the river near The Gulf Of Carpentaria,
We were hot but we were happy and it was Tuesday afternoon
And it was Tuesday afternoon and it was Tues day af ter nooooooooooooooooooon.
 
The Little Blue Bus can be found on iTunes.  You can also hear more of Michael O’Halloran’s music on SoundCloud and visit his site here.
 
Enjoy!
