A buddy song – our first music video – and, as you’ll see, we had to give up on the editing process about half-way into it and just let these two knuckleheads do their thing. Cooper’s performance is a tour de force that rivals both Tobey Maguire and Robert Downey Jr’s humble attempts at the super hero genre. He attacks the role with pure joy and reckless abandon.
…(still can’t figure out what that head-shaped thing is that keeps popping up behind them though)…
If you just want to listen to just the song the mp3 is above…
But if you want the total experience…
Here’s the video…
Here’s a brand new “Song Of the Week”!
It’s A Breeze
It’s a breeze – If you just try – Said the one’s on the ground – To the one’s in the sky – When you come down – You’ll see – And then like us – You’ll be – When you’re up – Just don’t look down – Said the one’s in the sky – To the one’s on the ground – When you come up you’ll see – And then like us you’ll be – You know sometimes it’s automatic – You do some thing’s so systematic – Down in the basement – Or in the attic – You stay – Maybe you’re just in time to get away – It’s a breeze – If they just try – For the one’s on the ground – And the one’s in the sky – When you join them – You’ll see – And like them – You’ll be
A new “Song Of the Week”…
And yes, it’s a sequel!
I kept getting told what a sad song it was – and this, my friends, is a happy place – So here it is!
Why the butterfly on his chest? Well why not?
Once again… A brand new “Song Of the Week”!
He wakes up to the sound of horns beepin’ – Instead of dreams it seems he’s got a big meeting – Go back to silent zoo – Sing – And they’re gone – ‘Cause it’s dawn – And he yawns – Puts his tie on – Today – He stumbles through the doors of tower’s gleamin’ – In his lapel – A flower – Does the redeeming – In his dreams the grass is green – Sing – Garden John – And they’re gone – ‘Cause he’s drawn – On and on – Won’t mow that lawn – No way – His yard is long and tall with bug’s a teamin’ – The flowers bloom and swoon to his heart beatin’ – A song or two wanders through – Sing – Garden John – On and on – He sings his song – Garden John – Lives upon – His dreams
A brand new “Song Of the Week”!
Frank’s Space Prank
Running in place – Caught up to find that you were floating in space – I’ve got to remind you that your cord is gonna come undone – Even if you’re having fun – Strange little place – Went where the computer said – Stayed here too long – The light is on and blinking red – Captain says to get on board – If your cord breaks you’re gonna soar – Away – So long – Floating away – Smile on your face – I saw through the visor – As you floated away hanging on the wires of the cord that had come undone – Drifted off into the sun – Away – So long – Floating away – Frank’s space prank – A rocket flashing through the sky – Coming in safe – Glad to see he’s alright but I wish he would’ve told someone – He’d gone and put a jet-pack on – Today
A brand new “Song Of the Week” … this is for William V. Hogsed, we just knew him as “Bill” …a very sweet man.
Here’s the lyrics:
Bill Get’s Up
‘Ole Bill gets up – Then Bill gets down – His juice is fresh – His toast is brown – He brings the bats a telescope – He brings the bunnies a jump-rope – He brings a whistle for the birds – ‘Cause they don’t know the words – He teaches them to play – But he can’t stay awake – So Bill gets up – And Bill gets down – His suit is pressed – His toast is brown – He brings the snake a pair of boots – For butterflies he brings parachutes – He brings the bears some books to read – It isn’t what they need – The hour’s getting late – They’ve got to hibernate – He brings his things to everyone – They don’t need things – But things are fun – He brings the bugs some kites to fly – They don’t know how or why – But Bill still helps them try – He’s just that kind of guy – And Bill gets up – Then Bill gets down – His juice is fresh – His toast is brown
My family has been asking me to do something acoustic – so here it is – a simple little tune – but I like it.
Here’s the lyrics:
Bugga Bugga Joe
The sky is filled with pinholes – Flashlight is shining on – Black construction paper – Says the day is done – Bugga Bugga Joe is sittin’ in his room – Lookin’ at the paper moon – In the sky – Spendin’ his life like a little star – Starin’ at the lid on a jar – Wishin’ he could fly – The night is filled with strange dreams – Wrappin’ strings to keep him warm – Hangin’ from the paper – His wings are born – Bugga Bugga Joe is dancin’ to a tune – Flyin’ around in his room – In the morning light – All it’s gonna take is just a little twist – From the girl with the jar in her fist – And away he’ll fly
This one is really different for me. It went through a lot of changes – from something completely wacky to the more straight version we have here.
A few words about “Grass Stained Twilight” – After much deliberation we chose the self-publishing route which has been great but limited our options. Originally there was going to be a 5 song cd included with the book. Now, it will be available separately as a full length cd – available here soon!
Here’s the “Heart On My Sleeve (Same Old Suit)” song lyrics:
I was afraid this might happen – Not the suit I should’ve worn – If I had made the right selection – I could’ve pulled the sleeve over my heart – Instead I went and put on the coat – Even though I knew the arms really weren’t very long – Inside I’d found – the note I’d wrote – Not to wear this again ’cause the pants had fit wrong – Tried to stay away from humiliation – Instead I stayed away from everyone – I was afraid this might happen – Not the suit I should’ve worn – If I
had made the right selection – I could’ve pulled the sleeve over my
heart – It would have meant having to do all those things that I said there was no time to get done – It would have meant having to dance in shoes I knew I loved but had never tried on – But without the slightest hesitation – I went and wore that same old suit for everyone – They point and say that I should’ve kept it on me – But the pockets in these pants are much too deep – I was afraid this might happen – Never thought they all might leave – Turns out I made the wrong selection – When I wore my heart on my sleeve
