about

Michael Wheatley Sydney, Australia

From underground funk rock in Kings Cross in the nineties to touring nationally with his own fringe shows it has been, for Michael, a very long way to the shop to get his sausage roll. Along that road though he has moved many a soul with his passion, unique sound and prolific songwriting. He's the kind of artist who you're lucky to know about and will always remember once you do. ... more

Track Name: First Drop
First Drop by Michael Wheatley

Verse 1
I fight with furious fighting fish
Underwater like a crab I grab a seabed dish
In a world of my own invention
I scramble for things that I think I need to mention

Chorus
As the first drop drips
My attention slowly slips
I don’t want to be the one to point the finger
But things will often linger

Hey baby,
Don’t point it at me,
That finger
Hey baby I’m letting you be.
Hey baby,
Don’t point it at me,
That finger,
Hey baby don’t you want to be free?

Verse 2
As I sit and wait for magic to happen
There’s so much that you miss while fingers be tappin
The fish come back to nip at my heel
I steady my heart, my mind, my steel

Chorus

Verse 3
Impressions made in stone so long ago
I long to undo all that I know
Like water and time I wear it away
Getting over and over, memories dim by the day

Chorus
Track Name: You Got Em
You Got Em by Michael Wheatley

Verse 1
You own the room, you’re holding court
Wiser for all the lessons love has taught
There was doubt and trepidation
And now its out no more sedation
Just open up now baby, open up now baby
And take a look
You got em eating
Eating from the palm of your hand

Verse 2
They’re really yours you just don’t know it
They’re really yours they just don’t show it.
There was doubt and trepidation
But now it’s out no more sedation
Just open up now baby, open up now baby
And take a look
You got em eating
Eating from the palm of your hand

Verse 3
It ain’t so strange, you’ve been here before
Seen the movie, read the book I’m pretty sure.
You have to laugh or maybe cry
Tell the truth, inside a lie
And open up now baby, just open up now baby
And take a look
You got em eating
Eating from the palm of your hand
Track Name: Just For You
Just For You by Michael Wheatley

Verse 1
You got the fire, got the smoke, you make me choke on the whole lot
I’m spinning, twisting, turning got me tied up in a knot
This rope is burning and I’m learning I’ve got more slack than I need
Assuming nothing I’ll stop huffing, puffing let you take the lead

Verse 2
I see you see the things I see when I look inside of you
You have a shine, a light that blinds, I can’t focus and I think I’m seeing two
Leave the curtain cause I’m hurting, I don’t think I can go outside
But here we go I’m white as snow, I melt in the sun, I won’t try to hide

Chorus
Spinning, turning
These arms are yearning
I’m holding on just for you

(rinse and repeat until content)
Track Name: Steam Engine
Steam Engine by Michael Wheatley

I’m like a steam engine baby
You got to feed my fire
Shovel that coal into my soul
Shovel that coal int my soul

Choo choo ah chugga lugga choo choo
I don’t care what you want to do
Just as long as when you do it, it feel real good

If I bring my funk will you smell some?
If I bring my funk will you taste some?
Smoke me like a cigarette
Track Name: Belinda So Fine
Belinda So Fine by Michael Wheatley

Verse 1
When I walk I keep a frame of mind
Often along a psychedelic line
But it’s changed since that fatal time
The time I first saw Belinda so fine
I wanted snatch her from of the street
“Let me put my head on your chest and feel your heartbeat”
That’s what I said that fatal time
The time I first saw Belinda so fine

Verse 2
She said “you get me hot” and I could feel the heat
So we got in the car and we polished the seat
That’s what we did that fatal time
The time I first kissed Belinda so fine
She got so close yeah and we got so tight
Baby burnt me up like white gypsy firelight
That’s what happened that fatal time
The time I first dekcuf Belinda so fine

Verse 3
I woke up the next morning to see my bed was empty
Such a pity one night was all that she left me
That’s what happened that fatal time
The time I first loved Belinda so fine
Track Name: Waitin On A Wave
Waitin On A Wave by Michael Wheatley

Chorus
Waitin on a wave
Lift me up to a better day
Waitin on a wave
Take me away from this place
Waitin on a wave
Look around I see a sunny day
Waitin on a wave
While I wait I know the wait is ok
Anyway

Verse 1
Sittin in the sea
And the blue is as blue as can be
And I don’t care
If it’s going to take me there
Anywhere

Chorus

Verse 2
And I don’t know
What do we tell the children?
And what do we say
When we don’t even see a wave
Anyway?

Chorus

Oh don’t you go cause I’m waitin

Chorus
