Charlie Foxtrot

I wrote the words to a new song today.  There’s a bit still open to change but here’s the basic idea:

 

It doesn’t really bother you, you don’t dwell on it a heck of a lot       VERSE 1

I mean really what’re the chances, the chances that you’d ever be caught

With all the power you’ve got, and all the people that you’ve bought

Hell, the world is your oyster, your very own charlie foxtrot

 

Oh yeah, that’s what we’ve got       CHORUS

A big ol’ charlie foxtrot

Sayin’ it’s so’s not gonna help it a lot

But it’s a goddamned big ol’ charlie foxtrot

 

If you’re thinkin’ they’re the good guys and they’re tryin’ a lot      VERSE 2

To make the world better and they don’t deserve to be shot

I’ll tell you just to look around and see what we’ve got

It’s just how they intended it – a charlie foxtrot

CHORUS

A truly massive giant stinkin’ steamin’ pile of charlie foxtrot       VERSE 3

It ain’t no bravo sierra man, it’s really a big charlie foxtrot

Man they fucked us and they fucked us, man they fucked us a lot

And now we’re all fucked and stuck here in this fucking charlie foxtrot

What Did You Say Last Night

I’ve just completed the words to my latest song, and hopefully I’ll get a chance to perform this at the Republican Convention coming up soon in Tampa.  I haven’t recorded it yet, but I will soon and get this on youtube.  The music for this is the same chords and style as the Nirvana Unplugged version of Ledbetter’s ‘Where Did You Sleep Last Night’.  I hope I don’t get sued, but hey…  Kurt would have thought this was cool, and I’ve got no money to take.

 

Oh Mitt oh Mitt don’t lie to me

Tell me what did you say last night

In your eyes, in your eyes, I’m looking there

And I don’t believe you have a soul

 

Oh Mitt oh Mitt don’t lie to me

Tell me what did you say last night

Did you say what you mean, or mean what you said

Nobody ever can tell

 

Oh Seamus was a good looking dog

Til’ they put him on top of their car

He said to me when they returned to town

That he wished he’d been left at the pound

 

Oh Mitt oh Mitt don’t lie to me

Tell me what did you say last night

What you said, what you say are two different things

And you switch it up every damn day

 

Oh Mitt oh Mitt don’t lie to me

Tell me what did you say last night

In your eyes, your soul, I see, the hole

There’s nothing       but coal
