Okay… so this was pretty much the most fun song to write and record. Blue Wave Theory’s incredible surf rock style is super inspiring. I wanted to go with a surfer theme, so I searched for ‘surfer slang.’ I found this awesome page—> http://www.surfing-waves.co... (you can use it for any weird words you’re not familiar with… I used as many as possible). When I found the term ‘hanging eleven,’ I had my theme. The song is about a dude who is surfing nude… so it’s a very silly song and I do hope you dig.

REMIX the VOX. Here are the stems.

WORDS
Throw on your boardies and grab your board
Shortboard, longboard, fishboard, fun
The waves are cranking, it’s time to charge
Let the gnarly waves run their course

Hanging loose on the party wave
Let’s hang ten, don’t look the other way
Hanging loose on the party wave
Most hang ten, he’s hanging ELEVEN!

Don’t be clucked by the clean-up set,
The overhead, pumping surf
Getting worked is part of the fun
Wipeouts, donuts, mullering

Hanging loose on the party wave
Let’s hang ten, don’t look the other way
Hanging loose on the party wave
Most hang ten, he’s hanging ELEVEN!

He’s freaking out the Benny’s
The frubes are all confused
The boogies have a garbage view!
He scared off all the Benny’s
The Barney’s gonna spew
Boogieboarders have a chowder view!

Anyone got some extra gear?
Boardshorts, cargoes, full wet suits?
Maybe even a single sock?
Anything to cover up that junk!

Hanging loose on the party wave
Let’s hang ten, don’t look the other way
Hanging loose on the party wave
Most hang ten, he’s hanging ELEVEN!

Hanging ELEVEN!

Akaw! She’s hanging TWELVE?

No frubes or paddlepusses at this party. Kara’s fun use of surf music and slang paints a very colorful beach party image. Catch the wave!
