Psychedelic Uke? Yes! Its about time.... A digital-only EP from Todd Parker and the Witches featuring new Ukulele interpretations of two tunes by the Tadpoles, Todd's 1990's neo-psychedelic band. The Ukulele Colored Glasses EP contains the tenor ukulele as the only stringed instrument on the psychedelic-flavored foundation. Jimmy Colored Glasses, from Tadpoles' 1999 album Whirlaway, gets a trip-hop beat and Nazareth, from Tadpoles' 1996 album, Far Out, features Todd Parker on vocals for the first time as the Tadpoles' version featured Nick Kramer. Instrumental versions of both songs complete the EP.

lyrics

Nazareth
you're taking my mind
you're taking my money
you're taking your time
Nazareth
you're baking my mind
you're making me funny
you're making me blind
Nazareth
you're just like a train
thats going insane
thats leaving today
Nazareth
can you spare me a dime
i wanna get high
if i can't i might cry

Nazareth
c'mon make me a deal
i wanna feel real
for that i would kill
Nazareth
i love all your lights
they really shine bright mon
you're right out of sight
Nazareth
i'll take you to bed
a dream in my head
until i am dead
Nazareth
you're taking my mind
you're taking my money
you're taking your time
