The more you listen, the more you hear...
A consistent and ambitious recording by Leo Kottke


Buzzby's running, he's running up the stairs
Bananas and mangos, breadfruit and pears
Carbon monoxide flooding Buzzby's tears

Buzzby's front door swinging in the wind
Cars in barns, gasoline engine
Indigestion's whine makes Buzzby grin

Pictures jump down off the walls
Stand up and glimmer and run through the halls
But they just dance when Buzzby calls

Moon-swept lawns and palm trees bloom
The dog goes crazy in Buzzby's room
Empty bedsprings cancel Buzzby's tune
