Ned is an unusual child...


Ned’s Adventures

It is the time when all children should be safe in bed
Not so our friend Ned
He’s looking in gutters and drainpipes for signs of the dead

He’s plying with sensitive fingers
The muck that is lying in unexplored places
No one but Ned would ever think to look there

No one has any idea what Ned’s been up to
They think he’s just blue
They think that it’s all just a phase that some children go through

They don’t realize the potential
That Ned has achieved with his engine of night
No one knows Ned is doing anything right

Ned, Ned, will we regret the disparaging things that we said?
Will your vengeance come crashing down on our heads
When you’ve become a plague to us all?

We may finally lose count
Of the bodies that once hosted quick human souls
As Ned marches forward with his army of trolls

It is the time when all children should be safe in bed
Not so our friend Ned…

“Earle Peach and Illiteratty perform original and innovative tunes which draw inspiration from world music, folk, and jazz. Listening to this group reminds me why I wanted to become a musician, and why I’m still proud to call myself one. Folks, it just doesn’t get any better than this.”

John Lyon, host of Deep Cove Coffee House
