Rock My World

Rock My World

Liner Notes: 

And now for something completely silly (and 4-5-1, cuz, you know, skirmish).

What can I say; I had too much to drink recently, and that wormed it's way into my song. (And I was off to such a good start!)

EDIT: I was in too much of a hurry and didn't notice the inspiration for the prompt in the thread, so the recent earthquakes didn't enter my thoughts. Sorry to have missed that direction.


baby you rock my world
make my flag come unfurled
leave me limp as a noodle
that no longer can be twirled
leave me high as a kite
can I stay here tonight
cause I have no clue where
home is anymore

it was the talking
it was the moon
it was the way the night just followed afternoon
it was your eyes
no big surprise
it was the way we laughed that put me in a swoon


perhaps the drinking
perhaps the booze
I really liked the part before I took a snooze
it was those sheets --
high thread count sheets!
the tender way you helped me slip out of my shoes

now don’t misunderstand
i had nothing like this planned
but you got under my skin
and this is now the shape I’m in!


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

Sounds like a good time was had by all. Good reporting on your part. Wink I like the happy energy of it. Too much fun is sometimes just enough.

Silly song? Really? You don't do yourself justice Barbara. It's a gorgeous song! And you didn't have to chose the direction, it's a theme for our interpretation. I've noticed the direction when I composed mine as well. The whole fun is how many different directions we find Smile

Hey there is a major II chord in there. I expected 4-5-1. False advertising! J'Accuse! Also, what is noodle twirling! No, I don't want to know! Smile

Much fun this song is. Biggrin

There are a lot of great rhymes in this song, but I especially love unfurled/twirled - I never would've thought of that!

Fabulous write. Slick lyrics and your story is adorable. I can imagine this sung as an Irish folk song! Sung just before pub closing time by the crowd of course Biggrin

This is absolutely lovely. I really like this one. It's lighthearted and playful, not so much silly really or all the way silly. There are some lines with more serious undertones like not knowing where home is and slipping out of shoes, and the romantic infatuation is clearly genuine even when it's not planned. All this during a skirmish? That's a job well done, for sure.

Barbara! I love every piece of this, the rhymes, the images, and especially the warble in your last line of vox! Get thee a banjo player and a good BGV guy and hit the road. Seriously!

Delightful, playful song - your voice is charming and it sounds like you're singing with a smile! Bright strumming sound makes it even better, even more vibrant. Good one!
