Gonzalo versus Saharan Dust
Last week, we here in southwest Florida were watching the progress of Tropical Storm Gonzalo. But a weather forecast headline let us know "Gonzalo Will Run Into Saharan Dust," and that weather phenomenon would wipe out storm. And a song was born. Also a way to practice some new mandolin chords (D minor and G minor).
Tea leaves and telescopes seemed like tools that I could trust
Told me Gonzalo’s gonna run into Saharan dust
In his sleeveless shirt, yeah he looked so robust
and then macho Gonzalo got in a fight with Saharan dust
Down at the beauty shop, he’s all the old ladies discussed
Yeah they gossiped ‘bout Gonzalo –then along came Saharan dust
He ate up all the garlic bread, left me with the crust
Gonzalo got ate up, too – by Saharan dust
Sharks are circling, all the bookies have gone bust
Gonzalo got knocked out by the new champ Saharan dust
Won’t be back for his Cadillac, summer like this it will sure rust
‘cause Gonzalo’s party’s over, he’s run right into Saharan dust
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
