about

This is pretty much a complete re-do of a song I first released in 2011, but which has never appeared on an album. There are new bass, drum and vocal tracks, and some tweaking of the chord changes (an embarrassing error in the original!) - plus a much better mix and general production.

This is very loosely based on a guy from "The Maze of the Muse" by Larry Buttrose. It's not a great book, but has some interesting characters in it.

The name "Mojozu" is derived from a local zoo's name, but means a lot more than that. In the context here it's every/any place you go to feel better and to get over a bad mood or a bad string of events. "I'm going down to the mojozu" might mean you're going for a walk, to a café, to the beach or even to a place they keep animals.

Hope you like this vastly better version.

lyrics

MoJoZu
©2011 Neil Porter

I’ve got your number in my pocket
I’ve got your sweet face in my head
Gotta get to work
But I think I’ll stay here in bed
I’ve got money in my wallet
Hearing something that you said
I’m gonna get down to the
MoJoZu instead

Down at the MoJoZu
Hanging at the MoJoZu
I’m gonna trawl the lost and found
At the MoJoZu

When your telephone stops ringing
And your rent is overdue
Get yourself on down
To the Mojozu
If your heart has started pounding
Walls are closing in on you
You’d better get down
To the Mojozu

Down at the MoJoZu
Hanging at the MoJoZu
I’m gonna trawl the lost and found
At the MoJoZu

If you’re fighting with your black dog
If there’s danger up ahead
You’d better get down
To the MoJoZu instead
Radar on for early warning
If your code is turning red
You’d better get down
To the MoJoZu instead

Down at the MoJoZu
Hanging at the MoJoZu
I’m gonna trawl the lost and found
At the MoJoZu
