It has some rhythm issues.

a crooner hey, well here's a few ditties that may appeal more to your audience..



Oh, women shouldn’t be allowed to talk
We should seal their lips with strong adhesive caulk
And if they try to write things down
We should drag them outta town
And anesthetize their legs so they can’t walk.. baba-dah-boo

and one for when you tour south:

Oh, women should be pregnant every day
From their early teens until they’re old and grey
And when they’re tired of labour pain
We should wrap ‘em up in chains
And dump ‘em into San Francisco bay.. sizzle-zee-zue
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

i have this recurrent joke/serious project with a friend of mine about a country band called 'the saddest man in san antonio' . we haven't got our asses to work on it but one day i wrote part of a melancholic song called 'same old fool'.

i want you to use the part i wrote and do something with it and your beautiful voice.

here it is:

gleamin' thru the alleys of redemption and hope
i found myself talking out loud to a picture of god
time had scratched it badly,
same  story with my soul
bartender came to me
said  can i help you, bud
didn't recognize me
hell i was still
the same old fool

same old fool (x100000000)



So I did, in fact, write a song for this.  I'll try and record it and post it for you in the next couple of days.  It turned out not being very country at all, but it's wicked melancholy, and that's what really matters.  Here's the full lyrics, for your perusing pleasure:

Gleaming through the alleys of redemption and hope
I was talking out loud
To a picture of god
Time had scratched it badly
Same story with my soul
Bartender came to me
Said can I help you, bud
He didn't recognize me
Hell, I was still
The same old fool (x4)

Sifting through the ashes of my evergreen heart
It was you that I lost
It was you that was gone
Well, time is not on your side
Time won't let you down so easy
I couldn't apologize enough
Hell, I was still
I was still
The same old fool (x4)

And all these days we leave behind
Like cheap hotels with vacant signs
And holidays we never named
For wild hearts that can't be tamed
In cantinas, with canned applause
Sitting with the ghosts of all
The famous drunks who came before
All silhouetted at the door
Your eyes betrayed your age, you said
I'm positive we never met
Before this day, and never since
But I knew you by your fingerprints
On the rim of the glass you drank from
And all the hands of the men you knew then
And if I'm still the same old fool
Will you go and leave me blue
Will you leave me blue
If I can't be with you


Oh, women shouldn't be allowed to talk
We should seal their lips with strong adhesive caulk
And if they try to write things down
We should drag them outta town
And anesthetize their legs so they can't walk.. baba-dah-boo

This one's next.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

So I haven't been making music for a while, and I'm no longer affiliated with the band that I used to be a part of, but I'm working on getting back into it, so I recorded a new song the other day.  Listen to it if you have a spare few minutes.  Much appreciated.

Excellent.  I'm starting to record my own music now as well, and this was an inspiring listen.

wow you can really belt it out. Add some more instrumentation in there and it could be a good song
You can go to places in the world with pudding. That. Is. Funny.
