The Four Warblers – Inanay Capuana


Why We Sing

We recorded “Inanay Capuana”– a beautiful Aboriginal lullaby one day after having rehearsed it for a local concert.

Below also is a creative take on the lyrics of Give Me A Home Among The Gumtrees that describes our little group of warblers!

Home Among The Warblers

We’ve been around the block
A coupla times and so much more
We’ve seen the sights and had bright lights
On stages grand/galore
And when our mates ask keenly,
The gigs that we adore
We tell them without delay

Give me a song for our sweet voices,
No room for vices
Canaries (a few), a d-dog or two
Fish tank humming along
To melody and song
And a comfy leather couch

You can see us in the kitchen
Harmonising most
Or chatting up the host
The girl’s ‘n me and a cup of tea
And later on we’ll have a laugh
The courtyard we will go
Watch Chase & Mintie play…Play Ay Ay Aaaay

There’s Fran from up the corner
And Jen’s lives in the street
This lively group that we’ve opened up
Oh just listen to the beat
We won’t be trading nothing
For a posh place or retreat
Where The Warblers they call Wah Wah Wah Waaah

Some people like their singing
Four walls tiled all around
Others let it all hang out
Bad luck about the sound
But Warblers Four sing well you know
A happy wholesome sound
And the kettles’ on the boil
