Cascade of Bullshit

NOT SAFE FOR WORK

Tags: 

Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

Defiantcreatrix and I got together on a Sunday afternoon to write this workday complaint. Defiantcreatrix on lead vocal, guitar, comb/wax paper and backing vocals; Nancy on bass, kazoo and backing vocals.

Lyrics: 

I'm overworked and under the gun
Ain't got no time to have no fun
If you had my job, you'd up and run
But if I don't do it, it don't get done

You can't take it with you, but god knows you try
And when you do it, makes me wanna cry
If you had my job, you'd up and die
And if you will listen, I'll tell you why

Cascade of bullshit, cascade of crap
Comes down from heaven, lands in my lap
Got no illusions bout what I am
In a river of bullshit, I'm the dam

Once I was young and fancy free
I let the chips fall where they be
When you have my job, you'll be like me
Oh, you'll get promoted, and then you'll see

Cascade of bullshit, cascade of crap
Comes down from heaven, lands in my lap
Got no illusions bout what I am
In a river of bullshit, I'm the dam

(kazoo break)

Cascade of bullshit, cascade of crap
Comes down from heaven, lands in my lap
Got no illusions bout what I am
In a river of bullshit, I'm the dam

Cascade of bullshit, cascade of crap
Comes down from heaven, lands in my lap
Got no illusions bout what I am
In a river of bullshit, I'm the dam

The sweet and light harmonies and the chorus cracked me up! Biggrin That's hilarious!

The church-lick guitar, that chorus! The rhythm of "in a river of bullshit" is so catchy, I could imagine other parts reinforcing it. High levels of humor here, laughing out loud. Keep holding back the bullshit you two!

This is brilliant! I love how you made the kazoo sound like flies buzzing around the shit. I love the burned out monotone voice you used for your verses. And the sweet, sticky harmonies on the chorus that mimic the way that shit sticks to your shoe when you step in it. This is so good. We've all got our metaphors for "Shit happens" and you captured so much of that in your lyrics. Simply brilliant.

Good fun, indeed! I particularly dig the cheery campfire chorus - glad you give it a big finale at the end. And the solo break is so delightfully weird. I'd like to be sitting in a tavern watching you perform this at the end of a work week.

This feels like my daily life! I was just lamenting on this same topic! This is a classic! Love the musical interlude. Such a great sing along chorus! My new anthem!
