Shorts and T Shirt



Liner Notes: 

It occurs to me every so often (as it did this morning when I opened our yoga studio at 6 am) that I get to earn my living in shorts, t-shirt, and bare feet.


All dressed up in tan and gray
Good for work and good for play
My motto set to song
Shorts and t shirt all day long

Maybe go with blue and green
Formal casual in between
Business meeting beer with lime
Shorts and t shirt all the time

In the garden winter and fall
Maybe wear no shirt at all
Living where it’s always hot
Shorts and t shirt all I got

Flip flops and a wide brimmed hat
On maybe barefoot how ‘bout that
All I do for work and play
Shorts and t shirt all damn day

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

You're right....Bo Diddley on vacation....meets Grisman and Buffet!.....Very refreshing...

Catchy! Banjo sounds great. One thing I really enjoy about my job is that I can wear jeans everyday. Now if I could just get a job where I get to have beer meetings!

I'm not much schooled in what a Bo Diddley beat is, but I hear a bit of "willie and the hand jibe" here (eric clapton) here; but it takes its own course in the theme, which is soooo Week#7! A good take on that challenge. And having been recently relieved of some full-time duties, I am pondering what work/life-balance I might be looking for next, and this slides right down that chute for me! I think about the life you and your wife have crafted, and it's an inspiration to my own ponderings.

Good catchy song. If I wrote a similar song it would be thermals and fleece sad to sy. Well done.

I like the pace very much here... Very singable and catchy. Such a lovely serene, relaxing song with awesome banjo sounds... feels like the summer, in deed...

Oh man, so much fun musically speaking. I agree with @igg ... there's Didley and Buffet in this song! Got me thinking about one chord songs and how they force you to be interesting in other ways. Maybe I should try it!
