Gecko

One of our bestselling pieces, Gecko – from Animal Songs for Children series is a humorous song about the Gecko’s creeping up our walls at night in Brisbane, with a cheerful tune and description of the Gecko’s habits. The children are required to tut-tut rhythmically like a gecko. It is available for either SA & Piano (2 part) or Unison & Piano.

This piece was sung at the Out of the Box Festival 2012 at QPAC by Voices of Birralee – Piccolos. Beautifully-made origami cut-outs of Geckos were pinned to the children’s shirts. Set piece of the Townsville Choral Eisteddfod 2015. 

A favourite at choral Eisteddfods and school concerts, this piece is currently one of our bestsellers.

“Little lizard sitting on my window-pane

Waiting for some bugs to come along his way

He’s a Gecko sitting very patiently,

A Gecko staring at me.

Climbing up along my walls inside at night

Making funny noises gives me quite a fright…

Oh, you change your colour every day

In the most amazing special way

Yellow, white, brown and green,

So you cannot be seen…” Sherelle Eyles
