Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Late to the party so a super duper fast song.

Lyrics: 

My baby says she needs twenty dollars
My baby says she needs twenty bucks

But I gave her thirteen dollars just yesterday
It doesn't grow on trees or so they say
I don't know what kind of man she thinks I am
But I'm doing the very best I can

My baby says she needs a hundred dollars
My baby says she needs a hundred bucks

But I gave her twenty dollars just yesterday
It doesn't grow on trees or so they say
I don't know what kind of man she thinks I am
But I'm doing the very best I can

My baby says she needs a thousand dollars



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

I like it. Its repetition makes it pretty catchy. Its structure looks like many hit songs! Great skirmish well delivered.

That lick is a fantastic way to start off the track! And I love the way the increments carry over per verse and chorus, that's such a smart way of building up the song. Really enjoyed the construction and sound of this one so top marks ☺☺

Nice structure and a clever way of building the song. Your acoustic riffing leaves me in awe.

This is really catchy and while a simple lyric there is a lot of wonderful perspective, insight, and depth to the guy and his lover. I love the folk feel!

This reminds me of the old Americana genre. Just perfect with the acoustic geetar and your very 'American' vocals Smile Love it.

Oooh this one just settles right in. Can relate to the escalation of the amounts. Smile

That's one high rent lady. Yikes! Good tune. I like the intro guitar riff. It's the kind of thing that lets you know what song it is in a couple of seconds on the radio. Good skirmishing.

"super duper fast song" and the first thing I hear are some guitar noodling that would take an hour alone to figure out how to do lol
Love the lyrics here, clever and funny to me. Reminds me of that old BB King 'How Blue Can You Get' stuff.
What you've managed sounds quite good. Love that laid back feel you create with the strumming.

Looking at the lyrics...lol...but I gave her thirteen dollars just yesterday. Very nice TC and the message is the more you give the more they want. Twenty, hundred, thousand...next thing you know it is million. I'm ready for the audio...hold Guitar intro...nice riff...vocals now...can clearly understand the lyrics...my baby says she needs 20 bucks...but I gave 13 dollars just yesterday....don't know what kind of man she thinks I am...but I'm doing the very best that I can...guitar riff...solo...my baby says she needs a hundred dollars....nicely follows the pattern...my baby...says she needs a thousand dollars. Very nice TC.
