Liner Notes: 

Alex: So because I successfully figured out that Georgie was the rapper on her one song (pitch shifted) she wrote me one last lyric for a collab. It's a barbershop song, and so I went classic barbershop style (though the 2nd tenor had a couple intonation problems, the rest of the guys behaved).

4 vocal lines: me
lyrics: Georgie

Lyrics: 

THE BOYS ARE BACK
Cooper/Klages

We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back
Gonna take this town by storm
The boys are back

This barbershop quartet is the best you’re gonna get
We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back

V
Listen listen listen
To our song song song
We promise promise promise
It won’t take too long

Before you know it know it know it
We’ll be gone gone gone
So listen listen listen
To our song

C
We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back
Gonna take this stage by storm
The boys are back

This barbershop quartet is the best you’re gonna get
We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back

V
Cheer cheer cheer
Cheer us on on on on
Clap your hands hands hands
And sing along

See the lights lights lights
Into the night night night
Before you know it know it know
It will be dawn

C
We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back
Gonna take this town by storm
The boys are back

This barbershop quartet is the best you’re gonna get
We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back

A capella bridge

We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back
Gonna take this town by storm
The boys are back

This barbershop quartet is the best you’re gonna get
We’re back (we’re back)
The boys are back

Love the a cappella here. You guys sound great together. I think you should post this again next year with a quick tweak: 'This barbershop quartet is the first piece you’re gonna get' Smile Hope to see you both during FAWM in February. Enjoy Smile

Barbershop! Had to take a listen. Much different than what's usually on 50/90. I liked it. Fun lyrics. Worked out really well, even though I would have thought by the lyrics it would be a boy band song.
