Thanks for the inspired/inspiring bout of bass and uke Kara, led to a bout of fun here this morning writing and singing a song about not having anything to write a song about.

It was kinda quick and it’s kinda raw but I’ll upload all the ingredients in case anyone wants to do anything slicker with it.

The words (it’s fiction by the way):

I like my family
I like my friends
I like my marriage
Nothing needs to end

I like my doggy
I like my car
I’d like to keep things
Just the way they are

I’m not unhealthy - I’m fit
I’m not unhappy - no shit
I’ve got no ennui - not yet
Nothing really to complain about

I’m in the choir
I’m at the bank
I’ve got no regrets
And lots of folks to thank

I play on the weekend
I play in the park
I work in the daytime
And sleep when it gets dark

I’m not a sicko - I’m sane
I’m not dumb thanks to - my brain
Let’s have a cookout - propane
Bring some meat we’ll laugh and eat and shout

I like my family
I like my friends
I like my marriage
Nothing needs to end

I like my doggy
I like my car
I’d like to keep things
Just the way they are

I don’t smoke weed or - get lit
I’m not that hip not - one bit
There’s nothing I need to - forget
Never did nothin’ to write a song about

I’m not a weirdo - I’m plain
Don’t wear a beard or - cause pain
Come over if you’re - the same
We’ll make up something to write a song about

Editorial pick

Specks remix of The Bout of Bass and Ukulele by Kara is raw, innovative and extremely fun. Even though the description says it’s fiction, we all know there is some truth to everything we write. So it makes it even more fun deciphering fact from fiction This deserves a couple of listens!
