Roosters Are Boss (Neil Cotton)

A rooster brays to start the day
Welcome to Key West
There’s a cock on every walk
With some funky hens
These dudes were freed into the street
Fights are done it’s common sense

Roosters are boss
There’s no back talk
Go where they want
Roosters are boss

Their colour wheel rust, red and teal
Caribbean cool
These gypsy guys scream at the sky
Squawk a doodle doo
Struttin’ around they’ll stare you down
Don’t care we hate their tune

Roosters are boss
There’s no back talk
Go where they want
Roosters are boss

Chickens were winners
Gamblers were losers

Roosters are boss
There’s no back talk
Go where they want
Saved by The Law
Roosters are boss

Roosters are boss

Yes Marley is the influence here.

Funny song with an upbeat feel.

Your production has come a long way since I first started listening to your songs. This is definitely one of your best mixes if not THE best mix I have heard.

Nicely done!

Peace,
TC


If it has strings I will find a way to play it!

Hey Neil,

Wow, you have made strides with the production--sounds great, well balanced. Cute song as well, and love the Island music. Vocal sits nicely on top.

So roosters "bray?" I only thought donkeys did that!

HAHAHA...Neil, you kill me! Cool reggae feel. Not sure what the bridge is saying or if you even need one? Overall, way to go thinking outside the box. smile

Bridge is a summary stating why the birds are free.

"Money is worst reason to be motivated NOT to do anything. Instead of letting those concerns STOP you, use it to motivate yourself to find an alternate solution that bypasses money. You will soon find that your own resourcefulness is worth far more than a pile of paper money." –Brian Austin Whitney
