Mrs. Delaney has a housecat Her cat's a calico who chases rats Mrs. Delaney's late husband Got her the cat as a present Mrs. Delaney took the cat for a walk And when they crossed the road: what a surprise! A truck came in and almost crashed into the poor lady But she was saved by her calico housecat And if Mrs. Delaney shouldn't know, my feline friend You can come to me and tell me from beginning to end But I have a feeling you don't even know a thing Mrs. Delaney's Calico Housecat Men of the tallest order came to see Mrs. Delaney and they would meet A little kitty cat with powers Powers the government wanted to exploit Mrs. Delaney couldn't understand What was so special about her cat Scientists and engineers were shocked by the sheer power of Mrs. Delaney's Calico Housecat And if Mrs. Delaney shouldn't know, my feline friend You can come to me and tell me from beginning to end Even if you're super-powered, your brain is still a cat's Mrs. Delaney's Calico Housecat

Convoy 03:05
You were born while adrift In the open seas A ship sailed in the morning light Of a thunderous war And you were taken aboard Onto the ship HMS Hermione And you traveled 'round and 'round Till the sea was yours And the Captain said You were his favorite His favorite (You were his favorite) And the rest of the crew Would come to love you too A cat adrift in the Great Blue Sea Running away from you and me Only to be found later In his favorite sleeping spot Convoy likes to sleep in the hammock That his shipmates made for him Cruising on the Royal Navy ship There's a name you don't wanna forget It's Convoy, Convoy (Come on, Convoy) Convoy, Convoy (Come on, Convoy) Convoy Convoy You were king of the ship And everyone adored you But most of all The Captain loved you above all others And one day, when he was sad And you climbed onto his lap And he smiled down at you You felt like you'd found your purpose in life And the day the ship goes down You'll go down with it (Down, down) You'll go down with it (Down, down) For this is your home You can't live without it You won't die without it Convoy likes to sleep in the hammock That his shipmates made for him Cruising on the Royal Navy ship There's a name you don't wanna forget It's Convoy, Convoy (Come on, Convoy) Convoy, Convoy (Come on, Convoy) Convoy Convoy There's a name you don't wanna forget There's a name you just can't forget Convoy, Convoy lives in my head Convoy is the name There's a name you don't wanna forget There's a name you just can't forget Convoy, Convoy lives in my head Convoy, Bon Voyage

His best friends took him out To see the sights, to feel the world But he could not feel it Not any longer, any stronger "Dad and mom are gone, and I'll be too" Repeat again "Dad and mom are gone, and I'll be too" Here comes the rain He's grown too old and yet He's only twenty, only twenty Life's only beginning Already wishing he could go back His best friends took him out To see the sights, to feel the world It takes him only a moment to turn back now Forever feeling down

Dreamin' 03:33
I’ve known you for a week or two But I can’t keep myself from thinking That I’ve known you all my life I think I fell in love with you When I fell asleep on your lap And you caressed my hair I fall asleep and I catch myself dreamin' ‘Bout you and the things that you do and I can’t help but feel like I’m falling In love with you I don't know how But I hurt you so And I've been awake for nights Piecing my words together I love loving you Every day and every night Let's make things all-right again I fall asleep and I catch myself dreamin' ‘Bout you and the things that you do and I can’t help but feel like I’m falling In love with you I see you in my dearest dreams And I hold you to my heart And I make a wish I fall asleep and I catch myself dreamin' ‘Bout you and the things that you do and I can’t help but feel like I’m falling In love with you

Big shirt and a couple torn-up kicks She skates along a pretty beach Ripped jeans and couple broken hearts Follow her as she skates She sees a boy Ride the wave, oh She has skated by the beach Ever since she saw him there Skater Girl looks at him And thinks he is the one for her "Can a boy ever cry alone? Maybe he can cry with me" You can love me so Surfer Boy I will love you too Surfer Boy Short shorts and pretty blond-dyed hair He rides the surf every day Many friends, but no one goes beyond Being just a nice enough surfing pal He sees a girl On her skateboard He goes to surf And hopes she thinks he's a big deal Surfer Boy looks at her And thinks she is the one for him "Maybe it's my award-winning smile That makes her happy every day" You can love me so Skater Girl I will love you too Skater Girl One day, the waves are gone And the skate park's closed They have gone and grown And remain unknown Skater Girl, I think about you now Skater Girl, I think about you all the time Surfer Boy, I think about you now Surfer Boy, I think about you all the time

Sunlight 03:13
Staying at home was never bad I never thought it would drive me mad But times aren’t changing And the days keep passing me by I thought it was a blessing But it was a curse in disguise And one day, we’ll be fine You’ll be able to tell the day from night And you will always be My ray of sunshine And good times will come When you and I don’t have to hide Everyone has their treasure And you are mine I’ll always keep you safe from those who Hurt you or try to take your place And times; they keep changing One day you and I will be out And one day, we’ll be all-right I’ll be able to tell wrong from right And you will always be my ray of sunshine And one day, we’ll be all-right I’ll see your smile in the sunlight

Do you ever want to go to A place far away Where there's cold breeze from the ocean And everything is right Everyone will greet you there Greet you with a smile Don't you just want to go to A place like Halifax And the prettiest girls live in Halifax And the cutest boys do too Would you give a life of certainty For a picnic on Citadel Hill And when you're feeling down and lonely The people there are kind Stay a while and make some friends there Feel some peace of mind Cause the prettiest girls live in Halifax And the cutest boys do too Will you miss your home when you've already made A family abroad And the prettiest girls live in Halifax And the cutest boys do too Will you feel as sad when you've left Halifax Will you ever feel at home

One day, Sir Matthew Came in with a guitar And a joy in his heart He had one resolution And he would perform his part Oh, Matthew, you Know this one So join in You taught us the joy of love That's why we sing this song One day, Sir Matthew Said he'd be king no more His crown he took off that day His riches he gave To the people of his kingdom And their hunger was solved Oh, Matthew, you Know this one So join in You taught us the joy of love That's why we sing this song Sir Matthew traveled Around this great, big world To meet with kings, queens and more He'd tell them how liberating It was, oh To be like the rest Oh, Matthew, you Know this one So join in You taught us the joy of love That's why we sing this song Sir Matthew and his friends Traveled around the world And the rulers gave their gold To the people of their kingdoms And the people of other lands Oh, Matthew, you Know this one So join in You taught us the joy of love That's why we sing this song Oh, Matthew, you Know this one So join in You taught us the joy of love That's why we sing this song

Oh, I dream of you every night and day Can't find any words to say Other than Angel Oh, you are floating through the skies above Like a pretty, little dove Just like an Angel Angel, take me with you I will hold your hand and fly Angel, tell me it's true There's no reason to cry You will save me Oh, an Angel you are Oh, you are a wonder of the world, you are Hold me in your arms so tight You are an Angel Angel, you know what's right for me Kiss me and come down with me, Angel Angel, take me with you I will hold your hand and fly Angel, tell me it's true There's no reason to cry You will save me Oh, an Angel you are (Angel, Angel) (Angel, Angel) (Angel, Angel) (Angel, Angel) On the wings of love, I Fly away with you now Everything is Heavenly with Angel, you Angel, you Angel, you Angel, you

about

"In soft aquatic surf-rock style, Furry Loser details stories of its passion held in forceful tides of past and present. The wistful 60’s sounds of his recent project Farm Rat Epitaph are percolated here by Furry Loser’s lo-fi indie origin. The sweeping sounds of a dreamlike future are made to confront a seemingly unshakable past, cycling through misunderstandings torn by hesitation.
Love, which arrives like a dream, is not a secret necessity that lifts us beyond ourselves. Like Mrs. Delaney’s cat, we are given the choice to remain welcome in a place of static acceptance or to be loved knowingly in a place far from welcoming.

The burden carried through these songs is that of hope —a religious act itself— bolstered by a willful love. We must believe that swimming forward is more loving an act than treading water and, that through this —like Convoy— we may find a ship we’d be proud to go down with."

- Fort Dire


"Furry Loser is back and continues to surprise and lift me up on empty feeling days with Celebration at St. Matthew's Home. A collage of dreamy soundscapes that would definitely accompany me on my way to the beach, onto the sand, into the water, and beyond. Every song takes me back to a memory I didn't know I had, I wish I could have listened to this album years ago!"

- Lou "Blue" Morales
