Fred Spek's CaMp CoMbO Toronto, Ontario

Entertaining, weirdo quartet CaMp CoMbO play
wacky jazz, maudlin ballads, crazy swing, latins, polkas, circus marches and surf beats. Darkly gleeful, often improvised and full of tricks! Gobs of original music, and a modern twist on some odd ball covers.

We are:
Fred Spek  sax singing
Nichol S. Robertson  guitar and banjo
Rachel Melas  contra bass
Great Bob Scott or Tim Shia drums

Track Name: Rock Paper Scissors
Rock Paper Scissors Fred Spek 2005

If you’re on a sinking ship
And you don’t wanna take a dip
And no one has a coin to flip
Rock paper scissors

God and Satan, they do it all the time
With each soul that stands in line
It’s just like some funny mime
Rock paper scissors

Don’t try this at home
When you are all alone
Just give that dog a bone
Rock paper scissors

Ee nee mee nee my nee moe
Who has the time, and you’ve got to go
It’s all just too slow
Rock paper scissors

Is it a sin to tell a lie?
Who’ll ask the preacher why?
Most little boys are much too shy
Rock paper scissors

An army of hungry guys
Who’ll get that last piece of pie?
Well here is something you could try
Rock paper scissors

What better way to deal with indecision?
When you are on that impossible mission
Where could you find such precision?
Rock paper scissors

That be-bop line would be such a bore
And at that tempo it just soars
But those jazz cats can’t stop for
Rock paper scissors
