Hello! I am trying to get 50/90 songs out and this one is a collaboration with a very fun lyric written by Elizabeth Petty.

I did all of the music, sing, recorded and mixed it.

I did a Baritone Uke track, a Banjolele track and believe it or not, I did a small TROMBONE track in the bridge...and I've never played a trombone in my life...

It is meant to be fun and sweet, couldn't peg a genre for it...

(I've taken on a stage name of Tammy Jann, so when you see that, it is still tamsnumber4 for my songwriting friends, but the new fans I don't trust as much as you guys!! LOL!)

Anyway, thoughts are welcome....


Do You Do Honey Dew on SoundCloud


Do You Do Honey Dew
by Elizabeth Petty and Tammy Jann
2015

VERSE 1
Went to Farmer's Market
for veggies and fruits
like arugula, eggplant
leeks and tuber roots..
Apples, beans, squash,
carrots, heirloom peas,
red ripe tomatoes,
sweet honey from bees...

But at the melon stand
I could not decide
given the choices
which one I should buy
I picked some up
Even smelled a few
And that's when he said...
"Do you like honey dew?"

CHORUS
Oh, yeah, he said..
"Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you honey?
Do you do
Do you do
Do you do
Honey dew...
Sweet Honey Dew"

VERSE 2
He asked me again
I said "I think so"
He said, "Then try some
'Cuz I, I need to know"
He cut me a slice
Held it to my lips
Watched me eat it
His hands on his hips

I gave him a smile
As I nodded yes
Juice dripping down
I was a sticky mess
He laughed at me
And leaned closer in
Winked, wiped my chin
And asked again...

CHORUS
Oh, yeah, he said..
"Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you honey?
Do you do
Do you do
Do you do
Honey dew...
Sweet Honey Dew"

BRIDGE
Well that was well over ten years ago
And since that time I've come to know
How to grow honey dew so grand
As sweet as my love from the melon stand

CHORUS
Oh, yeah, he said..
"Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you do honey dew, do ya?
Do you honey?
Do you do
Do you do
Do you do
Honey dew...
Sweet Honey Dew
Sweet Honey Dew"

Tammy Jann -- now you have a new identity and disguise too?? Ha, ha great stuff here.

(from 50/90) banjolele -- sounds super cool and I thought that was the baritone ukulele. I couldn't wait for the trombone part, ha, ha -- that was cool (very "economical", but cool).

Mighty fine lyrics, great story, and your choice of music was spot on. Mighty fine playing and super-duper singing -- really excellent.

Thanks Kevin! I started doing open mics and didn't want folks to have access to free music, only what I want them to hear so that I can have them buy a cd and was having trouble getting hit on by men...sigh... so I have a new website (www.tammyjann.com) and have taken control of that situation...

Glad you liked the song, Liz liked it too...always makes me nervous how folks hear what you did with their idea...LOL!! Thanks for stopping by! I'll try to catch up with you on 50/90, this performing and practicing takes time away from FAWM..but I did FAWMSTOCK, that was fun!!!

I think the open mics, live performance and such should take precedence over 50/90. Yes they can co-exist, but it is tough to be writing all new stuff and really practice your "live" songs so you have them ready for a performance. You are doing great! Congrats on the fawmstock stuff, I think I saw a video of you doing benjo's song somewhere.

Very clever lyric, Tammy.
Great treatment, too.

Now that was a lot of fun. Cooly arranged, played
and sung. You've got a fertile mind to crank this
out smile

Nice!!!

Fun song, Tammy:

Best of luck with it. Lots of cute lines and you seemed to be enjoying yourself... and that's half of the battle for success.

Simply brilliant Tammy.
I hear the strength of your vocals especially in the chorus and the harmonies are killer., as is the overall arrangement.

watch out world, Tammy Jann is 'bout to put it on ya.

You just keep getting better.
I don't mean just your voice, is getting better, I mean as an artist... the complete pack. writing, arranging, performing, singing.

Keep up the excellent work.

Hi Tammy,

The reverb (ugh..why does no "spell check" in existence know that "reverb" is a word?) --the reverb adds depth to your recording, but I'd personally prefer a tad less on your voice, at least for this song--but (small nit cuz) I really love this. Your voice reeks of confidence and is eating this up. I love how the chorus goes to an unexpected key, and really love how your voice modulates on "do ya" --and oh yeah, the trombone sounded great!

Mike
