Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

The prompt was - make your own prompt from any of the letters in “thermodynamic.” My first thought was to bale as it seemed to hard. Decided to have a little fun with it and be silly. Didn’t exactly create a prompt, but my title uses letters from the word.

Lyrics: 

VERSE:
Finally, some peace and quiet
Nine to Five’s got me plum worn out
Rush hour traffic makes me even crazier
Crawlin’ on the highway makes me wanna shout

Now I’m home sittin’ on the front porch
Havin’ my glass of Chablis
Then those kids pull up on their bikes
And throw apples at me

CHORUS:
I say Scram, why you lookin’ at me
Scram, there ain’t nothin’ to see
Scram, I’m not gonna say it again
Scram, you know I’m not your friend
So Scram!
Scram!
Scram!
Scram!

VERSE:
Good thing they missed with those apples
Who knows what I’d have done
Then a thought occurs to me
I could join in the fun

Like I did when I was a kid
I was mischievous too
But then they take another shot
I almost come unglued

CHORUS:
I say Scram, why you lookin’ at me
Scram, there ain’t nothin’ to see
Scram, I’m not gonna say it again
Scram, you know I’m not your friend
So Scram!
Scram!
Scram!
Scram!

Fun tune and yes its golden LOL. Actually the prompt is just a starting part to generate ideas and I'm glad this became a song!

This is great and a creative use of the prompt to craft a great song! Such a catchy chorus with the walk down chords!

Funny how Thermodynamics become a song about "get off my lawn!" The lyrics look so ripe for music to go with them--I'll look later to see if you felt like doing that. I like the visual and emotional way you tell the story.

Good work. The song uses the prompt just right and tells the story well. I remember as a kid, we had that nasty old guy on the block. Interesting to hear the story from the other side. Thanks for playing.

You created some pretty comical images for me, and I appreciate that as a listener. Really like these lyrics and the idea.
Love that riff during the chorus. That kind of thing paired with less-serious lyrics is something that appeals to me.

This song makes me wish there were more songs titled 'Scram!' because it's a whole lot of fun. I love the rock n roll feel—it's almost a scram anthem. And great imagery here too, especially the cranky guy drinking chablis.
