Fine and Dandy

from by Ange Takats



I’m just fine and dandy
I got a man with blue eyes standing by me
And his garden’s full of fruit trees
Believe me when I say, I’m fine and dandy

I’m just fine and dandy
My home is a rental by the sea
And I got no mortgage hanging over me
I’m positively fine and dandy

People often ask me “What comes next?”
As if I’d been expressing a restlessness
Oh what comes next? Well I don’t care!
‘Cause happiness is already here

And I’m just fine and dandy
I don’t live to work but I work to live
And I mightn’t be rich but I sure got a lot to give
Believe me when I say, I’m fine and dandy….

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
