Here is another light-hearted country song.

Note: I am not a performing singer or guitar player though I have been working to improve in those two areas. I consider my strength to be writing lyrics. I can also compose the basic music, i.e., suggested melody and chord progressions. I can provide a vocal/guitar MP3 to give a good idea of the melody along with a Word document with the lyrics and chords.

I would like to work with a co-writer who is a performing singer/musician and who can produce a professional quality recording of our songs. (The co-writer can also be songwriter. Suggestions for improving the lyrics, melody, and chords are welcome.)

Do The Honky Tonk Tonight
© 2010 Walt Lamberg and Alan Lamberg

Verse 1
Come on, country lady, gotta party tonight.
Now don’t you say no. We gonna do it all right.
Turn off the TV, the news is all bad.
Turn off the radio, the songs are all sad.
The whole damn world might be going mad,
But we’re gonna have a night like we never had.
Oh, yeah, do the honky tonk tonight.

Verse 2
Come on, country lady, gotta party tonight.
Don’t give me that look. We gonna do it all right.
Put up your hair or leave it down.
Put on your jeans or that nice evening gown.
Whatever makes you happy when we rock this town.
I see you want to smile; I don’t believe that frown.
Oh, yeah, do the honky tonk tonight.

Chorus
There’s a rocking new place just down the road.
We can go there in my pickup or your GTO.
Got a real nice bar, soft lights in the ceiling,
Just dark enough for a little romancin’.
The band’s all country and they play real loud.
There’s a big dance floor and a friendly crowd.
Oh, yeah, do the honky tonk tonight.

Verse 3
Come on, country lady, gotta party tonight.
Oh, I see it in your eyes; we gonna party all right.
When we walk through the door ‘bout quarter to nine,
You’ll break a lot of hearts ‘cause you look so fine,
And when we get to dancin’, we’ll have ourselves a time.
We’ll waltz, swing, two-step, do the country line.
Oh, yeah, do the honky tonk tonight.

Chorus Repeat

Tag
Come on, country lady, do the honky tonk tonight.
You’re my country lady, I’ll be your cowboy tonight.
Come on, country lady, do the honky tonk tonight.

Walt,
If you want demos of your songs I suggest J. Gale Kilgore of Eyeball Records at. Google it as the Link doesn't want to post He does a good job and is very reasonable.

Hi, I'm kinda iffy on this, feels ok but I think it needs the message more pronounced and the preacher mode reduced, if that makes sense,I'd try and make it more intimate.tell her why you wanna party tonight with her
really make her wanna party with you, show us her lipstick/ silky hair/smooth skin/dazzling eyes etc etc,
for me you have a great start here but could be killer
all the best,john

Walt, since you're using the word 'tonight' in Verse I Line 1 I wonder if you shouldn't go ahead and get the first 'hit' on your Hook, THE Hook, right off the bat. This makes it a Refrain-Type Chorus, a single Lyrical Line, and Musical Refrain, ending each Verse, as opposed to a Stanza-Type Chorus, as you indicate a Stanza below. That Stanza, then, becomes a Bridge, a brief variation on the Melody, the cadence, perhaps the Rhyme-Scheme, just to break the Repetition, supply some Change, and renew listener interest.

Here are some ideas to kick around; (Since it's such an upbeat, up-tempo love Song, a rare bird, I thought it merited exclamation points!)

Do The Honky Tonk Tonight
© 2010 Walt Lamberg and Alan Lamberg

Verse I
Come on, country lady! Let's Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!
Now don’t you say no! We gonna do it all right!
Turn off your TV! Their news is all bad!
Turn off your radio! Their songs are all sad!
The whole crazy world, might be going mad!
We’re gonna have a night, like we never had!
Oh, yeah! We'll Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!

Verse II
Come on, country lady! Let's Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!
Don’t give me that look! I'm not in here to fight!
You can put up your hair! Or just leave it down!
Put on your bluejeans, or your best evening gown!
Whatever makes you happy, when we rock this town!
I see you want to smile! I don’t believe your frown!
Oh, yeah! We'll Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!

Bridge
There’s a rockin' new place just down the road!
We'll take my pickup, or your GTO!
The band’s all country! They play real loud!
There’s a big dance floor and a friendly crowd!
Oh, yeah! We'll Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!

Verse III
Come on, country lady! Let's Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!
Oh, I see it in your eyes! We gonna party all right!
We'll walk through the door, ‘bout a quarter to nine!
You’ll break a lot of hearts, ‘cause you look so fine!
When we get to dancin’, we’ll have ourselves a time!
We’ll two-step, waltz, and swing, dance the country line!
Oh, yeah! We'll Do The Honky Tonk Tonight.

Coda
Come on, country lady! Let's Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!
You’re my country lady! I’ll be your cowboy tonight!
Come on, country lady! We'll Do The Honky Tonk Tonight!


(Man! That's nine hits on THE Hook. If they hear it once they'll know it.)
