Easter is just around the corner... hop, hop..
If you were planning to give something up for Lent, there's only a couple of days left. smile
Hopefully it wasn't writing. Or producing. It's getting kinda slow around here...

This is a co-write with Bill Osofsky.
It's got nothing to do with the holiday (or religion).


GIVEN UP FOR LENT

honey, have you seen my titan's sweatshirt?
i can't find it on my closet shelf
in fact, i'm sure i loaned it to your brother
when he got bar-b-que all on his self
patience and forgiveness
ain't the only things i lack
nothin' that i lend him
ever seems to make it back

(chorus)
ya know i love ya, baby
i love your family, too
but your brother's just a moocher
five finger rendezvous
anything i'm missin'
i know just where it went
'cause everything he borrows
i've given up for lent.

that shirt he wears with f.j. on the pocket
ya know your brother's name is clem devine
his twelve piece black and decker set of sockets
i'd bet your mother's teeth that it was mine
i swear he's got a share of
everything i own
'cause every time we visit him
it looks like i'm at home

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
they say a penny saved's a penny earned
apparently, a lesson that he's learned

(repeat chorus)

WHAT FUN!!! Really cute rocker with wonderful humor and craft. Is this a recent co-write Floyd? Mix and arrangement are flawless. A true gem!! Take care. Greg

Thanks, Greg. Past year or so is when I "met" Bill... we've written several together...

Glad you like it, Richard. Should have known that line would be "right up your alley"... (one of Bill's). Thanks for the listen...

Hi Floyd.

I see you've reverted to type with this one and I have to say that no one on here does country better than you.

Clever lyrics. I'm sure lots of us know someone just like that.

Nice arrangement, production and mix. The whole package is just fully professional.

ROG.

Another little pearler, great to have some toe-tappin' fun. Real comical lyrics, genius in fact!
Top production, mix, choice of instruments, absolutely everything.
Real nice
(I hope it's not a true story cry )

Floyd, the control worked perfectly. I think this hasn't been the case previously with those pages, but this time it worked great!

Hey Floyd,

I really like this - outstanding vocal and melody. I could hear Roger Miller doing this one. Very nice!

Hi Floyd,
So you lined up a few guitars again ☺
I counted 8!!!

Another song that I consider study material.
But first... Enjoying the song!
Great fun!

"that shirt he wears with f.j. on the pocket
ya know your brother's name is clem device"

LOL!

You know I'm a fan ☺

Things are a little slow here indeed, 4 songs in the pipeline, but just bought a Gretsch ☺, and we're going caravaning near saint tropez for two weeks ... So I'm taking a little break. Hopefully there's wifi there.

I have prepared a dvd with the best of the user Showcase forum to take along.

Always near you all!

Fred

PS The link works great!

floyd,

Yeh country as it should be!! and I can relate to them words mad
There are some good lines in this song laugh
"but your brother's just a moocher
five finger rendezvous"
and
"cause every time we visit him
it looks like i'm at home"

Good song floyd and Bill

The new link works great, but then I didn't have a prob with the other one!

Great comedy style write. Clever word-smithing.

On the topic.... I never lend anything with the hope of getting it back.

If I "lent" something to someone in the past, I consider it a gift. That's usually how it ends up anyway.

I'm generally fairly surprised when someone returns something to me in a timely manner. So imagine my surprise when my new brother-in-law comes to my house a day and a half later, says thanks.... and hands me the single nut driver bit I let him use.

Hi Floyd,

very clever and funny lyrics.
Arrangement and presentation are your
usual high standard. Your consumption of
guitars is amazing.
My regards to Bill. A great collab.

Tom mentioned to me that the solo guitars needed some reverb.
So I added some and uploaded a new mix.
(Also corrected a lyric faux pas that he pointed out. HA!)
Thanks, Tom...

Hi there Floyd,

This is a nice 'working' style country song. Steady as always, I also very much like the talking in the end, haha.
Of course no soloist fits better here than Brent.
It's the first time I didn't have to use the Windows media player on your website. This new slider works flawlessly in my browser.

Floyd,
I really like this. Excellent from start to finish! Although it does seem a little weak on guitar tracks. grin

This one reminds me of a "song challenge" write. Your given a topic, or title or some starting point and everyone in the group returns the next week with their take of the challenge.

I use to be in a group like that and I enjoyed it immensely.

So if the challenge was "Given Up For Lent" this song would have knocked all the other entries clean out of contention!

Simply a super reinterpretation and development of a lyrical idea!
