Amanda says: lyrics written for the mini superskirmish #a, [email protected] Good Times courtesy of [@TC Elliott]
They were a little late being submitted (37 mins) as I was watching the Hyundai World Archery Finals 2019 live on YouTube at the same time Smile Smile Smile

Sent rough lyrics off to @coreystewart as I have a standing order for funk with him Wink

Corey says: It's all done and it's time to PARTY Smile

Lyrics: 

Chorus
Good times rollin'
Hangin' with your crew
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you
Good times rollin'
Happiness is due
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you

v1
Keep your friends close
And your good friends even closer
Let em know just what they mean
Before they're too hung over

Chorus
Good times rollin'
Hangin' with your crew
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you
Good times rollin'
Happiness is due
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you

v2
Parties are for dancing
Let the guys burn barbecue
Get some sand between your toes
And mess up that hair-do

Chorus
Good times rollin'
Hangin' with your crew
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you
Good times rollin'
Happiness is due
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you

Bridge
Twist that funky rhythm
Stomping to the drums
Let your soul soak in the beat
An' your body take the plunge
Twist that funky rhythm
Stomping to the drums
Let your soul soak in the beat
An' your body take the plunge

Chorus
Good times rollin'
Hangin' with your crew
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you
Good times rollin'
Happiness is due
Share your love around
And it's coming back to you



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

Yeah, I like the rhythm in your lyric and I couldn't help but smile while reading them. Good times rollin', indeed.

Very good rhythm to the lyrics which suggest it should make a good song. Clever lyrics. I like the line about your friends being hungover. Captures the theme well, Good work.

I think when you combine the anticipated "funky beat" to accompany your words, well this thing is just gonna be one big ball of "Good Times" to listen to, Amanda.
Please drop me a line if Corey comes along and "Funkifies" this.

Light-hearted, feel good music. Reminiscent of stuff like 'Harvest For the World', 'Devotion', 'Love Train', etc.
Rhythmic lyrics lend themselves to the music laid down here; very important quality of the lyrics for a song like this, or the feel won't be there. This collab pulled it off, in my opinion.
I see "funkifies" in a previous comment, which makes me think of Tower of Power's 'You Got To Funkifize'. The vocal delivery here reminds me of that now.
Instrumentation and vocals are excellent.
Very well done.
