The Lyrics

This one MAY not need explanation. :D Here's a sample of the song itself...http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000001F5Y/ref=pm_dp_ln_m_2/104-2084040-7763168?v=glance&s=music&vi=samples
I write it down
My muse is met
I hope that it swings cause song's my pet
Confuse the folks they think I joke
Fun of them I do not poke, I spoke
This crowd of cools think I'm high
I'm afraid I may be shy
'Cuz feelings I just imply.

Became adept at wording it right
I sowed and smiled
Of this I write
I do try to define this piece
A passenger trying to make peace
That howl is me, fly I try
I'm afraid I may be shy
'Cuz feelings I just imply.
(I strut, I stroll)
(Reach down into my soul)
I state...NO,I AIN'T OFF MY ROCKER!

~~ very strange musical interlude ~~

I step onward with my waning sight
The crowd just smiled
My words ain't trite
Wonder why it seems like caprice?
I managed to write, now I'm at peace
This site is now asking why.
What do you mean is their cry.
I'm not addled, I'm just shy.
(I strut, I stroll)
(My life is in my soul)
I state...NO, I AIN'T OFF MY ROCKER!
'Cuz feelings I just imply.

From your title, I thought this was gonna be Carmen Electra talking about Dave Navarro. Heh heh. "Very strange musical interlude," indeed. Just shy, eh? Can't we get you to admit to being just a LITTLE addled?
Adagio - October 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Spaff. Addled? Me? Shirley you jest. ;)

(SOTM) I can't download a sample at the office, but it sure reads very interestingly. The sequel? "I'm Just a Writer in the Amiright Land"? ;)

(abc05) When you submitted during SOTM, i coudln't hear the sample, but now I have. I am impressed that you wrote it against such a difficultly-timed song.
Red Ant - September 16, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC05) Followed the sample well, but what does it mean? Just kidding, excellent work and I've never thought you were high.
