Track Sample:

 

A song essentially suggesting you’d rather be alive than dead.

 

Inspiration for a song can come from the most unusual places and when you least expect it. This song was inspired from a painting by Ken Brayford who painted all the dogs in their family past and present. Those who had passed are wearing halos, those who are still alive and barking are wearing hats! My immediate reaction when I saw this wonderful painting was . . . “Glad I’m wearing a hat and not a halo!” Then shortly after Mark and I went on a road trip to the Kimberley and the lyrics followed based on the amazing feeling of freedom and being totally alive in outback Australia. Sometimes it’s hard to be happy when there’re so many aweful things going on in the world that make you sad. But we shouldn’t apologies for the sand in our shoes or the wind in our hair, because we will all cop bad times and in the meantime do the best we can for others less fortunate and get on with enjoying life! Tori Dewar

INTRO:

I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo, I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo

I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo, I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo

 

VERSE 1:

The queen of the desert, I got nothing to lose

Nothing in front of me, what will I choose

I’ll put a little Amoco in my machine

The dust in the mirror’s the best I’ve seen

 

CHORUS 1:

I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo, I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo

 

VERSE 2:

Bad things going on, I don’t know what to do

So do what you can, then make the best of you

Oh it’s a beautiful show to be seen and heard

But before you drink it, make it shaken not stirred

 

CHORUS 2:

I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo, I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo

 

BRIDGE

Don’t apologise for the sand in your shoes

Or the wind in your hair, cos your life’s is on the loose

It will make you mad and it will make you sad

So put your paint on your brush and brush like mad.

Don’t apologise for the sand in your shoes,

Or the wind in your hair, ‘cos you’re life . . . .. . is on the loose.

 

SOLO’s:

 

VERSE 3:

Big blue space staring back at me

Didn’t pay a cent, didn’t rent it’s free

Goanna on the rock, goanna in my car

Singin’ the tunes right up to Williams bar

 

CHORUS 3:

I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo, I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo

I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo, I’d rather wear a hat than wear a halo
