Lyrics to (Few) Holly Throsby's SEE!

Eight months ago during his flight from Jakarta to Surabaya with Garuda, my husband picked up a playlist titled with something related to Australia and children (was it like "Australian Children Songs" or "Children World Music" or something? I often found such playlist on high budget flights :p, I mean, those flights with personal monitor screen and headphone).
Well he's a bit Australia-minded :P, by the way. When he got home he kept singing this Holly Throsby's "Diamonds Are So Shiny" to our baby boy (whom predicted will spend 4 or 5 years of his childhood in OZ wink).

I found the song a bit strange at first (and the other songs in the same album, Holly Throsby's "See!") but as my husband kept playing and playing (simply because he loved it, not because he tried to make me love it razz hahaha but that was my impression razz) I often found my self humming to its tune. Or even sing it. There are some words I couldn't hear but I couldn't find any lyrics so far. So I think I'll post the lyrics here (after I completed some missing words with a help from my hubby :P), haha at least for my self.

Putt Putt

I'm gonna buy me a motor boat and we'll go putt putt over the ocean
I'm gonna buy me a motor boat and we'll go putt putt, putt putt


I don't own a big commotion like all the fishes know
That is a lot of ocean
I don't care where we go

When I am old, old, and grey
I'm gonna chop my helicopter and I'll zoom my aeroplane
But I'm still young, young, these days
I'm gonna put back to the back of my head these daydream instead  

I'm gonna buy me a motor boat and we'll go putt putt! over the ocean
I'm gonna buy me a motor boat and we'll go putt putt!, set this boat in motion
I'm gonna set this boat in motion


Diamonds are So Shiny

Deep down in a hole in a ground I found something so shiny and round
The hardest thing that I've ever found
Diamonds are so shiny

Big blue sky, did you know I can bounce so high?
Higher than the sparrows fly
on a wing and a frame

like the aeroplanes, flying over my house again
faster than the fastest train
they go so far away

Well I have a deck of cards
and I'm in love with the two of hearts
A dart hole with the ace of spades
I found a bone and some clay

and an old golf ball
I hit around with my four of clubs
all the way to the baseball fields
which they call it diamond, so shiny

==============================

Fish and Mice

Every night I've been dreaming about sounds
Every night I'm as quiet as a mouse
Some colours go together, and a circle has no end
And the stars will shine forever, and you are my best friend, (you are my best friend)

Every night I've been dreaming about houses
Every night I'm as quiet as a mouse [mice...]
Some colours go together, and a circle has no end
And the world will turn forever, and you are my best friend

[One, two, three, four]
Oh fishes [fish!]
Oh bicycle [bike!]
Oh living [life!]
Oh mouses [mice!]

Every night I dream that I can fly
Every night I fly across the sky
And some colours go together, and a circle has no end
And the stars will shine forever, and you are my best friend, (you are my best friend)
