a Shak a Lak

I dream the radio up at night
A super sonical scene yeah
I dream the radio up at night
A metaphysical stream Lord

I hear the tippy tippy tapping and the timing is right
To a tall tale melody
I got a Tina Turner petting on her microphone
Jimmy burning his guitar for me

Sippin sippin salty dogs and sasaphrass
Bout as happy as a man can be

So far gone I'm never lookin back
Gonna have a good time livin in a shack
Lion in the woods snake up in a tree
Got a lot to learn from the birds and the bee

Shake it all off its just another day
Listen to the nighttime you can hear it say
A Shak a Lak a little itty oh
Another celebration then I gotta go

I dream the radio up at night
In crystal Aqua marine yeah
I dream the radio up at night
A brilliant music machine Lord

I hear a trippy zippy counterpuntal elaboration
Of ecstatic static harmony
I gotta mambo jombo jamming on a slide trombone
And an Ozzy didgeridoo do we

Shakin makin lemon Rickies in the rooi grass
Lazin underneath the strawberry tree

So far gone I'm never lookin back
Gonna have a good time livin in a shack
Lion in the woods snake up in a tree
Got a lot to learn from the birds and the bee

Shake it all off its just another day
Listen to the nighttime you can hear it say
A Shak a Lak a little itty oh
Another celebration then I gotta go

Thanks folks for your kind and entertaining remarks... I'm not very happy with the way this one turned out. I felt like I needed to redo it but didn't want to put any more effort into this one. It was like birthing a rhinoceros horn first... Ha!

Doug, I really like this one, and I think it turned out great!
Not sure what you don't like about it. It has a cool funk feel and I really liked the strings in it. That made it feel Barry White ish. Cool stuff!
