  • Pick a song title...

    Now with test lyric ideas!!! Hey!

     

    Just curious if anyone has any input on what they like below. These are just ideas, unformed from my notebook.I've just now sort of jammed on some lyrics to each title to see what flows. This is all just written to the title in the past 10 minutes to see what flys or not. That's clear when you notice they all have the same cadence. Whatev... anything?

     

    Stuck Holdin' the Shovel

    (Imagine Keith Richards attending Ian Stewart's funeral. How ironic. Imagine a father burying his son. Imagine the one who deserves to die outliving the true and righteous.)

     

    Never thought I'd have my hand out carrying you down this aisle

    Never thought this would be the last time I'd see you in a while

    Never thought you'd leave the table with your cup full

    And leave me stuck holdin' the shovel

     

    Tourists and Purists

    Tourist and purists and everything in between

    Lovers of pure beauty or the sickly sweet obscene

    Drink it in then move it along, trust it has staying power

    But please dearest patron don't forget...we charge by the hour

     

    Little To Say

    I've got little to say, nothin' to add, that hasn't been said before

    Words are wasted as they feather to the floor

    Don't look at me and tell me I'm hardened steel

    I got little to say but way too much to feel

     

    Memoirs of an Idiot

    If anybody can take a sweet thing, pick it up and turn it right sour

    Spoil the simmering broth trying to thicken it with flour

    It's me brother, it's me, it's true, I concede

    Sit back put your feet up, take your time and read

    It's all in there, I've been completely fair, you'll feel the truth of it in your gut

    Enjoy my latest release... Memoirs of an Idiot

    Stuck Holding The Shovel is going to sink or swim with the rhymes for shovel (of which "cup full" is not one)

    Tourists and Purists has got to pick up that 5 beat pattern, and there are a lot of songs around that type of paralell construction (Beggars and Choosers, Handbags and Gladrags etc.)

      bedknobs and broomsticks

      winners and losers

      tasters and sniffers

      pee-ers and poo-ers

      movers and shakers

      plumbers and bakers

      And don't burn the rhythm with candlestick makers

    "Stuck Holdin' the Shovel" is the most interesting title of these 4, IMO.

      I also gravitate to this as a title, but it has some difficulties to resolve :

      1. And leave me stuck holdin' the shovel reminds me too much of Gerry Rafferty - 'Stuck in the middle with you.'

      2. However - It's also difficult to sing the two words with double syllables as an ongoing sentence, so the phrasing needs to change, and that may disassociate it from Gerry Rafferty. 'And leave me stuck / holdin' the shovel'
