Miss O'Jenny Blues
Hope this works! I'm trying to use humour to make a serious point - never an easy task. I love blues very much but I find that more and more I can't listen to the outright misogyny in the lyrics. So many bluesmen were supported and loved by the women in their lives and so many of them abused these women and yet this doesn't appear in the words of the songs. A lot of this is in the past but it's troubling that people are writing lyrics like this today. This is a tongue in cheek blues song. I used an affluent English person's accent for the spoken words to be a contrast with the blues verse. I really don't speak like that at all! I was thinking about Martin Mull's 'I woke up this morning' song as a template for this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBWrIrYWUoE
Excuse me darling but could you keep the children from squabbling for a moment?
I’m about to record some music.
Thank you, you’re a perfect angel
You’re a mean mean woman and you know you treat me so wrong
Such a mean old woman and you know you treat me wrong
If it wasn’t for your money, I’d be long gone
Thanks darling I’m finished now. It was a blues song.
Quite authentic I think
By the way I notice we’ve run out of olives, could you be a gem and pop out and buy some more?
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
