Caring About Yourself Is Cool (50/90 - Children's Song Album Challenge)

Liner Notes: 

I haven't written much since February and I've felt like I've been blocked because I only want to write great songs (which is an impossible requirement to put on yourself), so I just freeze up and never finish anything. As a warm-up to start off 50/90, I set a challenge to myself to write an album of children's songs as quickly as possible, ideally in 1-2 days. I thought it would be a good challenge since I've always wanted to try children's songs (I love kids and for some reason many become obsessed with my singing even though I don't write kids songs), and they are *supposed* to be lyrically and musically simple, so I don't have to chastise myself for not being creative enough. Although I think I managed to make some of them too long and lyrically complicated anyway, haha.

I'm doing pretty well so far; July 6th was the first day I worked on it and I finished 6 songs and I'm at least moderately proud of most of them! Just need to record them. I came up with concepts for 11 songs in total so I'm aiming to finish those other 5 today or tomorrow, or at least get to 10 which is a decent sized album. Then onto the next challenge I set for myself, TBA!


Eating vegetables is cool
They come in rainbow colors
They grow like magic from the ground
They're easy foods to play with
You can make them look like faces
Or ants on a log
Eating vegetables is cool

And having a bedtime is cool
You won't be up at midnight
And nothing good ever happens then
You finish up your checklist all
Before those sleepyheads get up
And roll out of bed at noon
Having a bedtime is cool

And moving your body is cool
Getting faster and stronger
And testing your physical limits
Have you ever seen those people
Who can do flips off walls
Or even win gold medals
Moving your body is cool

Turns out caring about yourself is cool
Feel better, live longer
And look cool doing it

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