FRUGALISTO

Frugalisto
Frugalisto
(2016)
What about a lighter footprint?
I'm craving simple taste
Grow my own food if I could at all
And cut back on my waste
What more do I need
From the mountain to the sea?
Call in the gang for a velcro plan
A pot of hot coffee or tea

And when is enough enough?
And when have I enough stuff?
And when is enough enough?
And when have I enough stuff?
Frugalisto
Frugalisto...
No manifesto
Frugalisto

I cut back on the diesel
Cycle into town
Call into the GURU Tearooms
When the rain comes down
We tease out all the crises
From the Ukraine to Iraq
And we've a plan to solve pollution
We've abolished the water tax

But when is enough enough?
When have I enough stuff?
When is enough enough?
When have I enough stuff?
Frugalisto
Frugalisto...
No manifesto
Frugalisto

Why would I ever jump on a plane
With a passport and sunscreen
When paradise is here and now
And I am living the dream
My next great adventure
Will be just standing still
Between Hag's Head and the White Strand
And the buzzing all around Moy Hill

And when is enough enough?
When have I enough stuff?
When is enough enough?
And when have I enough stuff?
Frugalisto
Frugalisto...
No manifesto
Frugalisto

What about a lighter footprint
Under the silvery moon
And is my life for living
Or am I just here to consume?

And when is enough enough?
When have I enough stuff?
And when is enough enough?
When have I enough stuff?
Frugalisto
Frugalisto...
No manifesto
Frugalisto
