about

When Robyn was watching some of Errol’s videos on youtube, her mom mentioned that she had found her soulmate. Errol has not let Robyn forget that fact, and stalks her. He found out she liked Totoro. And so they wrote this song together.

lyrics

VERSE 1:
I don’t live in a neighbourhood with any plants
I don’t live near any foliage
Greenery was bulldozed over
For sprawling suburban zonage

It’s not that I wrap my arms round campfir trees
To most plants I’m allergic
But if I travel to the forest
I want to meet one tree spirit
I wish Totoro was my neighbour

VERSE 2:
He’s big and he’s furry and he rides tops
That spin as he sails through the wind
He plays music on a seashell
And has an engulfing grin

CHORUS:
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
(and we can grow plants)
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
(by the light of the moon)
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
(plant giant oak trees)
And I’d like to ride the cat bus too

VERSE 3:
My house isn’t old and rickety
It was built in 2005
And although it can get quite dusty
I haven’t seen one soot sprite

Every time I play hide and seek
I look into all the burroughs
But mostly what I find are weasels
And not sleepy Totoros

CHORUS:
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
(and we can grow plants)
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
(by the light of the moon)
I wish Totoro was my neighbour
(plant giant oak trees)
And I kinda think that the cat bus is cool

BRIDGE:
And if I ever saw him
At a bus stop in the rain
I would give him my umbrella
And we could fly around downtown
