about

The Baroquans landed on Earth in the 16th century. Using strategically formed two-part Fugue teams, they mercilessly took over the entire western world by boring people to death. Their era was ended in the 17th century when the Romantics landed.

This is their story, a story of hope, music, running away, and being bored.

Due to the fundamental importance of the subject at hand, and the immense influence of the protagonists on world history, this album contains three distinct performances of the story, however the underlying facts remain the same.

Track Name: Baroquan Overture
Music & Lyrics 1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

The Baroquans are on the loose again
You’d better all watch out
Their eyes have turned chartreuse again
‘Cos they’re lurking about

You can tell them by their powdered wigs
Those awful sourkrauts
and should you see those creatures, man
You’d better give a shout
Track Name: On The Loose
Music & Lyrics © 1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

The Baroquans are on the loose again
You’d better all watch out
Their eyes have turned chartreuse again
‘Cos they’re lurking about

You can tell them by their powdered wigs
Those awful sourkrauts
and should you see those creatures, man
You’d better give a shout
Track Name: Bored By Them
Music & lyrics ©1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

I’m glad that you told me
They could have controlled me
And now we must
Make sure, that we are not
Bored by Them. Bored by Them.

Boredom is their weapon
We must intercept them
Should they play their music
You sick, me sick
How can we defend ourselves?

Everyone’s in panic
Pacific to Atlantic
Everybody grab an Axe!
Baroquans are maniacs!

We must not appease them
Grab their necks and squeeze them
We must listen to the facts
Regarding Baroquans attacks

Squeeze them, oohhh, what do we do?
We have Baroquans on our backs
(on our backs! get Baroquans...)


Someday I know
Baroquans will go
They’ll go away but for today
We have Baroquans on our backs
(on our backs)
We have Baroquans on our backs

I hope they
Stay away....
Track Name: Weetza's Cozy Palace
Baroquans: Cozy Palace

Music & lyrics ©1975 by Robert Davidson

I need a place where I’ll be cozy
Where the neighbors aren’t nosy
I think I will move to someplace new


I’ve walked around for days, days & days
I fear that I am losing my ways
I need a place to go
And a place to settle into.

Strange I’m feeling worried
What a strange place

Have you heard the Baroquans
Those strange and evil aliens
Have been reported meeting in this area?

Strange I’m feeling worried
What is going on

If I were you, I’d be frightened
He is a Baroquan!

Now I’m really worried
But tell me how did you know?

I saw him on the news
They were was wearing funny shoes

Oh no! I though eh was a forest ranger
I did not know of the danger
Aliens from outer space create

He said he’s not from outer space
His story's always changing

I’ve heard rumors of a Choir Army they’re arranging.

Very very very very strange.
Track Name: Miss Fortune false start
Music & Lyrics ©1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Although I don’t believe in Misfortune
It’s my duty to tell you it’s true...
cut...
cut..
What's the words...
I'm sorry I forgot the words...
OK
Track Name: I Don't Believe in Misfortune
Music & lyrics ©1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Although I don’t believe in Misfortune
It’s my duty to tell you it’s true
We must get our revenge against the Baroquans
If it’s the last thing we do

All our men have been trained by the experts
To do whatever they have to do
They will beat Baroquans until they are broken
If it’s the last thing they do

We got a million fighting men or maybe two million
We can’t be hurt
We’ll take the Army Choir and push them in the dirt
The dirt

Although I don’t believe in Misfortune
For Baroquans I think that it’s fair
They’ve made such a disgrace of this wonderful place
Let’s get them away from here

We got a million fighting men or maybe two million
We can’t be hurt
We’ll take the Army Choir and push them in the dirt
The dirt

And now all of us must start by helping
Help to save ourselves from Baroquans
For their terrible curse is just making things worse
And it’s worse things like this I can’t stand

We got a million fighting men or maybe two million
We can’t be hurt
We’ll take the Army Choir and push them in the dirt
The dirt

And now it is time, time to help fight
We’ll help you fight!! We’ll help you fight!!
We’ll help you
We’ll help you fight!!
We’ll help you fight!!
We’ll help you...

We’ll kill
Baroquans
Track Name: Weapons of Boredom
Music & Lyrics ©1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

I’m glad that you told me

We must intercept them
Should they play their music
You sick, me sick
How can we defend ourselves?

Baroquans: Fugue Time
Music & Lyrics ©1672, 1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

We’re Baroquans yes we are Baroquans yes we are
A race from space with no place
Aliens that torture humans
And we well have no mercy when we do
And then we will bore you bore you bore you
And then we’ve captured you you see...

..why we are called the Baroquans
We may not ever work again
And we will bore you til sundown
Because by then we’ll be run down
That’s why we never lurk
‘Cos if we do, we’d never work

...and that is why we are Baroquans...

And so you see why we are called the Baroquans
We may not ever work again
And we will bore you til sundown
Because by then we’ll be run down
That’s why we never lurk
‘Cos if we do, we’d never work

...and that is why we are Baroquans...

Happy Time reprise:
Music & Lyrics ©1975, 2013 by Robert Davidson

I was walking down a happy road
When a happy birdie said “Tweet, tweet, tweet”
All: In the happiest way!
Happiest Girl: And now I”m happy
And I have no worries
And all I need are the little birdies
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: What would I do if they all went away
I wish they all would come outside to play
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: So I took one and put it in a cage
Now I am the happiest girl for my age
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: Happy, happy
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
Happiest Girl: Happy, happy
Birdies: Tweet, tweet tweet!
