For the last 18 years Jack & the Beanstalk has been a band trying to get laid and score free drinks. Along the way they have recorded a couple tunes and played a few dodgy shows.

The Whirly Bird single is small pause in an otherwise long hiatus of the band members getting married, finally getting laid, rearing babies and attempting to grow up.

Both songs have their origins in tracks Joe wrote for the never completed third album, “West Coast Soul”, written during his time in Sweden in the early 2000s. An album mostly about Perth, Western Australia in the 1960s and 70s, it may yet finally get completed for release in 2014.


released May 6, 2012

Track Name: Whirly Bird
Hey you won't you come along with me
The future's so bright that I can't see
How this could be any other way.

All week long I've been thinking of you
Press my shirt, spit and polish my shoes
It's Friday night, let's have a drink or two or more.

Are you ready for dancin' and romancin'?
Come on baby won't you take a chance with me?
And it's the sweetest thing I've heard
Won't you be, won't you be my whirly bird.

I hate this job but I need the bread
When I see you I'm gonna lose my head
I'm gonna clean out these pockets and you can fix the hole in my heart.

The minutes feel like days
Until I see you walk my way
Tick tock tick tock my heart goes stop.
Track Name: Old Melbourne ('live')
I miss you like a hangover
You paid me all the time
I was cruising around with no lights on
I never made you mine

I never made you mine
I needed one more drink
I never made you mine
Please let me take your home

Now I could barely stand
With my feet stuck to the floor
I asked you for the time too many times
I could take no more

I never made you mine
I had to run outside to throw up
I never made you mine
Please let me back inside

You’re still around but you’re gone,
You’re still around

If walls could tell a story
I’d go back there some day
To find out just what went on
To see where I went wrong

I never made you mine
I never made the call
I never made you mine
Please let me back in time

God I miss you
