Sorry y'all. It had to be done.


Like Water for Chocolate

by David Snyder


https://soundcloud.com/david-snyder-gigs3/like-water-for-chocolate

V1

Drove my truck to the library
right off of Green Road
not to read a book
cause I can't read that much you know
just like to look at the honeys
stacking the hits in those library rows
love those library glasses, library girls
love them head to toe

So I walked up to a honey
she smiled and she asked for my card
I said baby I can't read too good
I guess you know it's hard
she said come on back to my house
and I'll teach you how to read
the way she smiled, the way she smelled
I said this girl is all I need

Ch

It's Like Water for Chocolate
Where the Crawdaddies Sing
All the Light We Cannot See
the Latest Stephen King
It's Like the Color Purple
Like the Girl on the Train
And when we've made love for the
fifth time
it's like the art
of racing in the rain

V2

Well you don't need no Harvard
just understand a girl's heart
just tell her she's the only only one
to ever fill in the missing part
Where we're headed for I don't know
no one ever knows in advance
But while we're waiting on a plot twist
you can bet the farm on this
I'm gonna whisper in her ear
every time we dance

CH

It's Like Water for Chocolate
The Remains of the Day
China Dolls and Code Girls
And Fifty Shades of Grey
Little Book Shop in Paris
Little Fires Everywhere
The Notebook and the Handmaid's Tale
Baby Handle with Care

It's Like Water for Chocolate
Where the Crawdaddies Sing
All the Light We Cannot See
the Latest Stephen King
It's Like the Color Purple
Like the Girl on the Train
And when we've made love for the
fifth time
It's just like...
It's just like
The Hunger Games
Oh yeah it is

Very very clever David. How many of those novels did you read?

Great story and vocal, super instrumentation, and a perfect mix. The lyrics with all those novel references took it over the top for me.

Excellent song!

Well, if it had to be done (and I agree that it did), you are the best one to do it, David. Good concept for a song, and I love those lyrics, excellent references in the chorus. The passion in your vocal convinces all of us that you're right.

Hi David,

Without fail, every time I listen to one of your songs, you leave me smiling from ear to ear. Your creativity seems to be unlimited and unchained.

I am left full of admiration for where your craftsmanship takes you.

Listening through headphones, this sounded really great!

All the best,
Noel

Lyrics made me chuckle. Musical bed is excellent and as always I enjoyed your unrestrained vocal delivery. Another fine piece of work, David.

Wow, that clicky kick sounds odd in the mix...hard to believe it's Modern country rather than a metal tone.
David, You do pump energy into your vocals...the superpower becomes unwieldy in spots.

Interesting narrative...starts off in dubious territory before settling into a robust lust story. The book shelf referencing is a good way of filling lines, finding rhymes and doing fine. I did something similar with Beach Boy song titles yonks ago.

The 1st chorus is cool
"It's Like Water for Chocolate
Where the Crawdaddies Sing
All the Light We Cannot See
the Latest Stephen King
It's Like the Color Purple
Like the Girl on the Train
And when we've made love for the
fifth time
it's like the art
of racing in the rain"
though the crawdaddies thing seemed a little forced tough I'm sure Delia won't mind.

I went back for a 2nd listen but, to be honest, hearing fatigue kicked in pretty quickly with the strident vocal and general volume.

David.

SUPER enjoyable.

Good BAND.

Nice mix.

Your vocals are always impassioned.

Cool write. The 2nd verse is especially strong. Clever chorus.

I've read most of those except Crawdads and Hunger Games (but I saw the movies!).
The latest Stephen King is Excellent!
The Art Of Racing In The Rain is a favorite!!

Much enjoyed!

Hi David,

I enjoyed this song from the first tone! It is typically your style and I like that style. Although I can't (and wont) copy it.
I have to walk my path, as they say.
I think I like your lyrics even more. They are huge, but always wrote so clever. Like when you come in with Steven King, or 50 shades of gray as a rhyme for 'day'. Wonderful! Those skills I would like to copy!

I didn't hear any klick, clack or what else that does not belong in your song.
While on the other hand the banjo and mandolin fit great in it.
I enjoyed it a lot!

Hans

This is now my favorite DS song.

You know that I, as an English teacher, love these lyrics.

Fabulous work!

Your songs always make me smile and this is no exception, romantic pop song from a truck driver smile
"Well you don't need no Harvard
just understand a girl's heart
just tell her she's the only only one
to ever fill in the missing part"
and "library girls love them head to toe", clever and strong write. Although I don't know most of those books, I appreciate the art of making their titles sing. Good vocals and arrangement, maybe bit thin mix in my ears.
