20 You are the world to me - 50/90 2019

Liner Notes: 

Another "just bloody pump out a song" day :P This was based on a Titular prompt this time, "without travelin'".


I won’t fly to Paris
And I won’t fly to Spain
I won't try paella
Nor sip on champagne
Broadway lights are far too bright
And London’s way too grey
I won’t be keen to see the sights
In Rio or LA

Cus you are my world
And you’re all I need
Wherever you are is where I wanna be
You are the earth
And you are the sea
You are the world
The world to me

I won’t ride a gondola
I won’t ride a sleigh
I won’t kiss an eskimo
Nor a guy from Bombay
I’ll never rest on Everest
Nor drink wine on the Rhine
I’ll never see the Wild West
Nor wander ancient shrines


I won’t climb the pyramids
I won’t hunt for whales
I won’t seek enlightenment
Nor find the holy grail
Yellowstone just makes me groan
The Nile ain’t my style
Stonehenge bores me to the bone
And Bali gives me bile

Chorus x3

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

Love the vibes from this one. fun lyrics and the vocal melody remind of something from the 50's

That style of music was always cheesy thats what made it! You've hit the genre spot on very entertaining

its a laundry list, but one that to fun to listen. classic cabaret material. in the golden age of songwriting, you would be rich if your one a day pump outs were al this good.

Love the rhymes in this, very well done and well weaved into a marvelous song, so nice to sing along and I love the sounds you make by the end like a trumphet. Very nice job as always.

This has an amazing Tin Pan Alley vibe. And the conceit of "All the things I won't do for you" is a fantastic twist.
