The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Rosemary Davis' World Of Sound


Rosemary Davis' World Of Sound
Dawn in a suburban garden.
Troop of horses passing.
Milk float runs and stops.
House to house delivery.
Church bell tolling.
Alsatian barking.
Human heartbeat.
Start, tick over, depart.
Gas escaping.
Men running on country road.
Domestic fire burning.


And I'm lost in Rosemary Davis world of sound.
And I don't believe I ever want to come down.

Departure preparations.
Sea wash astern.
Engines running at 18 knots.
Door opens and slams.
Monsters roaring.
Electrical sounds.
Radio static.


From the sounds of a world where I might be
At the other end of the galaxy
I'm lost in Rosemary Davis world of sound.

Waiting For The Love Bus
There's a clean, simple sound to a lot of this that Condition Blue detractors might appreciate. I'm ten years older now than when I made Bath, and right now, after all that morbid stuff, it only really feels like about three. There's rockin' shit and there's a big ballad or two and some weird little pop songs and a nice family sing-along about penguins. I hope you like it.

Pat Says

The Butcher Says..
Rosemary Davis, actress, writer and producer, edited the original BBC Sound Effects records. Today these sounds, assiduously recorded in the early sixties, seem to come from another world.

We can go out the way we came in, but we had best go a bit more quietly. I think that chap in the baseball hat has nodded out. Source: Pat Letter 1993-08-30 1993-08-30 (Monday, 30th of August 1993 - 30 years 106 days ago)

    This song brings back some very fond memories. I lost my copy of this cd a few years back, and recently remembered this song... It took me days to remember enough of the lyrics to find it online:P
