This is a song I spontaneously sang to my baby, Toby, when he was about a month old and I was strumming a ukulele for him. Written in 30 seconds and recorded in about 2 minutes :-) The lyrics actually refer to the theory that mammals are programmed to find big eyes and small noses cute, because they symbolise “babyishness”.


Undersized nose
Toby you’ve an undersized nose
Shorter than a garden hose
You’ve got an undersized nose

Oversized eyes
Toby you’ve got oversized eyes
Bigger than pizza pies
You’ve got oversized eyes


from Run V​.​T., released August 4, 2015
