I Need To Write A Song

Liner Notes: 

I wrote this lyric at the end of my three week lull. I meant to record first but left the lyric at work and finally got around to recording today. I didn't realize it would be less than a minute long.

I need to write a song
I don’t care if its a crappy song
I don’t care if it’s a sappy song
I gotta break out of this slump

I need to write a song
I don’t care if it’s a bad song
I don’t care if it’s a sad song
I gotta get my brain to dump

I’m stuck in endless critique
writing about sustainability belief
But Joe is just an ignorant thief
Shocking my amigdala

I need to write a song
Something mundane about solar panels
Something inane about electric vehicles
With a kick drum thump

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

that was cute. why do those uke chords sound differently voiced than the same chords on the guitar? or am i losing my pitch sensor?

uke is great for breaking the drought well done. I will share a secret, i nearly always write my first cut of songs on a Uke shhhh! you love ya solar panels!

I was just listening to White Stripes, and now because of the last line about the drum thump I can imagine a guitar/percussion version of this song.
Cool chords, as usual. You got a good song out of writing something quick and simple. Looks like you're out of the slump now!
