And here are the lyrics...

In Between The Rhythm And The Rhyme
Copyright Stephen W. Young

There's a little girl making eyes at me
She's wanting my attention
Wanting me to see what she can do
Yesterday when she waa two

On a Saturday at the football field
A pretty girl is cheering
And every now and then her team will win
Yesterday when she was ten

In between the rhythm and the rhyme
There's so much more to life if you just take the time
I wouldn't trade for all the things that you can find
In between the rhythm and the rhyme

A young man smiles nervously at me
He's wanting my permission
To take away my pretty little girl
And turn around my whole world

In between the rhythm and the rhyme
There's so much more to life if you just take the time
I wouldn't trade for all the things that you can find
In between the rhythm and the rhyme
(Repeat Chorus)

A little girl is making eyes at me
She's wanting my attention
Wanting me to see what she can do
I can't believe she's almost two

--

Hope you all have a great day!!!

Steve

Hi Steve,

Yet another fantastic effort! Your productions always leave me amazed. The way you can pull so many differently styled instrumental Realtrack together to get a homogeneous mix is outstanding. This one is no exception. It's a real credit to your talent.

All the best,
Noel

Great song, musically. At first, I thought the voice was mixed a little bit too up front... that seemed to improve as the song clearly developed in a very personal direction.

But, I guess I didn't really understand it. Maybe I'm just a little dense, and I get the "kids growing up" lines, but the refrain, "In between the rhythm and the rhyme, There's so much more to life if you just take the time."

My guess is, that you haven't given your kids as much of yourself as you should have, as you would like to have done, as you have pursued your personal adventures (music, I guess). (I confess to that error - "Hey, get out of the studio... Daddy's recording!)

Brad,

Thanks so much for listening and giving your comments! Much appreciated!

This song is not really a confession of my regrets. It's more of an observation on how time flies, and an encouragement to focus on our most valuable assets - our loved ones.

If this were a confession of my regrets and shortcomings, my daughters would say that the song is Waaaaay too short!

But this is one of the wonderful things about songwriting. There are so many interpretations that can come from a song. I like that.

Again thanks so much for taking the time to listen and comment!

Steve

Tommy,

Thanks so much! I don't know of any of my family coming from New Mexico. All the Young's in my family that I am aware of are from East Texas. I'm not saying that I come from a Redneck lineage, but I did have an uncle named Mutt, and a cousin named Bozo! (With that knowledge, you may not want to claim any relationship with me.)

Have a great day!

Steve
