Liner Notes: 

My internet's been off more than on today so to pass the time I wrote a quirky song.


Would I Be Considered Odd?
© 2020 Cindy Prince

If I walked upside down
And downed right side up
If I rode around on an ostrich
And drank lava from a cup

If I high dived in a puddle
And drove up to the moon
If I always ate with my feet
And only went to bed at noon

Would I be considered odd
If I didn't speak but only nodded
Would people turn away
If my lips were made of clay
Would people look and stare
If I had Marge Simpson hair?

If I lived in an old western
And had a calico face
If I got home before I left
And ran backwards in a race

If I slept with a jar of Jiffy
Ate grass that has been mowed
If all my friends were turnips
And I talked in secret code

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Well ya know, it seems like you can make up your own reality these days, so I'd say, no, not too odd.
These lyrics remind me a bit of some of Daevid Allen's more bizarre lyrics for Gong.
I can hear this as a silly kids' song.

Funny and right for pointing a gentle finger at our social stresses. Sharp writing!
