I SEE BEAVER: BRAN NEU DAE

I went to see this movie last week and was given a program so I could sing along-- a first! The story is about an Aborigine boy who escapes a Catholic boarding house to return home to his girlfriend. Its apparent popularity in Australia didn't personally translate for me. . .but a few of the songs did pique my interest, such as "Seeds That You Might Sow", which comes with this handy safe sex lesson, told only the way an Aussie could:

"Lester:
Now she was only 16
Just a child upon a road
When I moved up to her slowly
Said, I got a heavy load. . .

Bar Girls:
Well I like polony or perhaps a sausage roll
But if you don't use those condoms
Then you cannot poke my hole."
