Jim and the Rather Large Nectarine

by Windmill



"Quiet, Constant Friends, a compilation of literary-themed songs by some of Wake the Deaf's favourite artists, will be sold in support of Worldreader, with every penny of the profits going straight into their good work. Some of the songs were recorded especially for this release, some are from upcoming albums and others are old favourites which fit nicely with the theme."

This song, by Windmill, was inspired by Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach and is available through Wake the Deaf's wonderful compilation.

It took just one peculiar thing
To lead to many more
It took five hundred and two seagulls
To lift us into the air
Just took one Rhinoceros from London Zoo
To eat my parents whole
Just took one giant peach
To get my life to roll

It took one Empire State Building
To crash land happily
It took seven mutated bugs to make me see
That I still had a family
Just took one city of New York
To me us feel we had come home
Just took one giant peach
To get my life to roll

And living with my Aunts was really hard
But now I live in a peach stone in Central Park!

And now that I live
I live in New York
I feel so much buzz
And I hear so much talk
About how we flew in a giant peach
My best friend
He has one hundred feet
