That's right folks, my very own original content to add to. I wrote this a few days after the election and never got around to recording it.
I've never done one of these, so I'm just gonna copy and paste what thenewgreen says in his.
KEY OF E MAJOR (I like it too, tng), 74 BPM
face down in the same bed the last guy used
ties his shoes, change the sheets
as the coffee reheats
in the microwave
Donnie-onnie-onnie tees up
same old thing, practice swings
old friends pretend that his game hasn't
slipped a bit
since he started the new job
Oh, and he never makes it home in time
to catch his favorite sitcoms live
Oh, and he never seems to find the time
just to sit with his new wife
His new wife, and his new job.
Donnie-onnie-onnie gets cuts
on the little skin flaps between his fingers
from skimming too fast
through the daily reports
he just wants to get some rest
Donnie-onnie-onnie wakes up
from his 2 o clock nap
in the light in the back of a tinted-out
stretch cadillac on its way
to another funeral
Oh, and he never gets to talk to his kids
about his business
(I guess it's doing fine)
and he never gets to make any deals like he used to
That's the new deal
and his new job
(Oh, I feel so broke up, I wanna go home).
I swear to god soundcloud is fucking with my audio. This had 7 db of headroom when I uploaded it, I'm guessing that they add compression/boost audio to make everything on their site roughly the same volume? I don't know if I'm just paranoid or what. This song is pretty sloppily mixed anyway, so I guess it doesn't entirely matter but blehh.
In any case, PM me if you want a copy of the WAV, or you can download from soundcloud as well.
This is so good. The sarcastic character profile is a fucking classic songwriting move and if anyone deserves this treatment, it's the President-Elect. Thank you.
