(Don't Be A) Rat Blues
I was working on a collaboration when the skirmish started but some of the folks in the chatroom were talking about it. This is a tongue in cheek take on the prompt "Your biggest fear" cuz when I was a kid I didn't worry about pops. I worred about momma.
The acoustic guitar was an idea I had while recording another song so I armed a separate track and did a one take. Then afterwards I used a single mic and played the guitalele and sang the verses real quick in another one take. So two tracks, three parts, one tack each.
My Momma gave me a dollar fifty
To go and buy her some gum
But I went and bought some baseball cards
Before I knew what I had done
So I headed down to the grocery store
To swipe some gum anyhow
But don't go runnin' to tell my Momma
No, don't be a rat right now
My Momma said I could go and play
As long as I was home by dark
But we all lost track of time
Playing down at the park
So we made up a story
'Bout helping find a lost milk cow
So don't go runnin' to tell my Momma
No don't be a rat right now
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
