Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

The prompt for song circle last night was to write a "funny" song. I failed miserably. But my friend Ray did not. He wrote this lyric and I put it to music today.

Lyrics: 

My sister in law calls me up and asks me
To pick up the kids, drop them at the school
They climb in with a grocery bag
Filled to the brim, completely filled with food

Don't let 'em eat in your car, boys
Don't let 'em eat in your car
Food on your clothes just ain't funny
And car detailing costs big money
Don't let 'em eat in your car

My car headliner is stained with Dr. Pepper
'Cause four whole cans exploded in the heat
I've seen chocolate melting on the dashboard
I found a box of french fries underneath my seat

Don't let 'em eat in your car, boys
Don't let 'em eat in your car
Food on your clothes just ain't funny
And car detailing costs big money
Don't let 'em eat in your car

My backseat's been smeared with peanut butter
Chips and salsa are in there, too
I look and see coffee stains all around me
It sure looks like I've spilled a cup or two

Don't let me eat in your car, boys
Don't let me eat in your car
Food on your clothes just ain't funny
And car detailing costs big money
Don't let me eat in your car



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

Ha! Sounds like you were snooping around our family car when used to take gaggles of boys to soccer games! Fun tune and brilliantly awful images!

A graphic nightmare of messy eating. Fun quick ditty, well delievered. The turn at the end is great also.

"found a box of french fries underneath the seat"...HULK SMASH!!!
I used to take my little cousins (not so little anymore) around all the time and I swear...french fries, crumpled up burger wrappers, empty candy wrappers, bottles, etc....

Stuff that won't come out with just those gas station vacs! That detailing does cost big money!!! ARRRGHHHH!!!

This is great, lots of fun.
