Animal Farm

Leopard in his country house counting up his loot
Lizard on the hustings in his birthday suit
Fish is in the restaurant slippery as an eel
Snake is in the basement cooking up a deal
Bull is in the china shop, dogs have run amok
Tiger’s stolen all the cash, eagle’s passed the buck

You can run
but you can’t hide

Rat is on the make in a nightclub downtown
Horse in a bordello wiping off her frown
Rabbit in the spotlight, needle in his arm
Lion in a sports car, a gun his lucky charm
Pussy on the catwalk too strung up to ignore
Donkey with a wad of cash two asses on the floor

You can run
but you can’t hide

Lil red rooster huffs and puffs
Elephant’s in the room
Pigs are feeding from the trough
Monkeys sing their tune

Cockroach in a corporate suit powdering his nose
Hawk in a Bugatti hoping everybody knows
Ostrich in the courthouse, head buried in a brief
Parrot on the TV screen, pitbull for a chief
Swallow on the casting couch shoring up her fame
Spider on the world wide web where no-one knows his shame

You can run
but you can’t hide

You can run
but you can’t hide

You can run
but you can’t hide

EPIC! Such a well developed lyric, the imagery is amazing. Thank you for this really entertaining submission smile

Hey thanks everyone! Great to know the lyrics are entertaining. It is of course a lyric-driven song.

I've come across the ebook before Joe but, ahem, will flick through it again.

Great fun!
All the above seconded here on the lyrics... such a cool idea for a song. Your vocal fits the style really well.
Now I just need to decide which animal I`ve been today!

Matcham,

Some songs are more equal than others and this song of yours is excellent.
A great listen with some lovely imagery for the animals you chose.

A good fun listen

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
