Laughter Falling In The Trees

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Superskirmish prompt 'Laughter'. The background crickets (or whatever the insects are) outside provided the rhythm. I started with the basic I IV V7 I chord progression with variation substitution in the verse lines.

Lyrics:

Laughter Falling In The Trees

I hear laughter falling in the trees
Crickets Katydids Cicadas could it be
Rising crescendos droning loud as airplanes
I hear laughter falling in the trees

Woody woodpecker give us a bit of rest
Hollowing dead branches building a nest
Rising cacophony sounding quite insane
I hear laughter falling on the rest

Brown squirrels barking our bowl is empty
Burying acorns all day planting plenty
Gymnastic bird feeder antics hanging from a trapeze
I hear laughter falling in the trees



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

Ah nature - always having the power to make us feel better. Very nice lyrics and song to go with them. Great collab with those insects. Wink

Love the attention to the chord progression, nice. LOLed at Woody Woodpecker. Nice groove well established 3dr verse Tension buildup in that next-to-the-last line both words and music really strikingly good.

Ahhhhh, totally got a Kermit "Rainbow Connection" vibe right from the get-go. Perfect!
Nature is a better musician that the lot of us combined. True story.
