    Good to see you TW.

    I put the heat and desert verse in to make it 325 suitable.....

    Default The Boiling Frog

    When I learned about the season, this song kept running through my head. It was written by Pat Wynne and Bernard Gilbert from San Francisco. Recorded in 2008. The imagery is gruesome but I can assure you no frogs were harmed in the recording of this song.
    For the literal-minded you can Google boiled frog and Wikipedia will tell you all about it.

    Well....This Jimmy Buffett classic popped in my head as a good one for this week, until I tried it!!! This song majorly kicked my butt, found it really hard to keep the groove on it. This is the best I could do after several tries, in fact, this was the only time I made it all the way thru!

    An original for ya "It's not just the heat you're taking"


    lyrics
    Bought herself a ticket
    To see the man with the blue guitar
    No one thought to tell her
    That he plays the way things are

    He played her and Jimmy
    He played Jim and Jane
    When the bridge of sighs starts sighing
    Nothing stays the same

    Chorus
    Circus days are over
    Packing up the signs
    It’s not just the heat you’re taking
    It’s the cold you leave behind

    Took her turn inside the lion’s cage
    With a monkey on her back
    Figured that would shave her odds
    Sweet logic drowned in that

    Cause Daniel came here last week
    Extracting every thorn and
    In this land of kings and sawdust
    Not much mercy’s going on

    Chorus

    Sentimental things to touch
    Sentimental things to burn
    Smoke hangs over Sydney
    She drinks more than she earns

    Fire up the mountains
    Aunty Sue leaves Uncle Jack
    Gumtrees spitting splinters
    Aint no turning back

    Chorus

    A traditional song - a lullaby. I first heard it on a Peter, Paul & Mary Album in the 60s. I added an extra verse to make it suitable for 325.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Well this was a challenge. System of a Down. Desert in the chorus. Wear headphones if you're in public. F bombs lie within.


    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"
