Lyrics: 

#2 Brother Crab

So I fell for your eyes
and the hair
the bold lies
the way you threw me a smile
a promising word
the fake heart ache that hurt
the neediness to save you for a while

But I should have met your brother
I should have met your brother
I should have met your brother
not you
but the other

You told me he was boring
and a softy worth ignoring
told he was OCD like a crab
and crabs can be quit funny
just not as fluffy as a bunny
so that’s Why I didn’t gave him any slack

But I should have met your brother
I should have met your brother
I should have met your brother
not you
but the other

Then one night I walked in
on you naked with your cousin
telling me I should join in
but I’d rather have a crab in bed
who OCD’s me into a purring cat
and finds his way’ into gentle sin

Then I met your brother
then I met your brother
then I met your brother
not you
but the other

So now I’m with this boring crab
ignoring his bold brotherly stag
although I need some fun once a while
I’m gonna handel them both
for they don’t have to know
that I’m used to playing brothers
all the time

so now I have two brothers
now I have two brothers
when I’m done with one
I can change him for the other

Quite a turn at the end. I was thinking the song was quite hilarious but that last turn was sinister...Your song took me for an entertaining ride.

thanks! yeah I tend to give things an unexpected turn, just couldn't go for the victimized 'I fell for the wrong guy' Wink

The playful way this is delivered and the way that the tables are turned on the lecherous brothers in the last verse has left me with a big grin on my face. Great fun!

very amusing and very well done! of course there had to be some twists

Interesting style.

I liked your other track Wild Horse.

Heck, it's only 3 mo's old. Recheck it in your DAW Wink squirt it out fresh and post it too.

- As you like... just saying

A vivacious vocal and a mischievous lyric make this a delightful listen. It's the sort of song that needs a lively vocal for maximum effect and that's what you gave it. I didn't foresee the ending and imagined the cheated woman would be down in the dumps, not joining in the philandering. Great stuff, and a definite crowd pleaser.

Ha ha! Funny! I like the story and the plot twist ending is great. A fun and well performed tune. Very engaging and satisfying tune!
