Here is our latest co-write. Had lot's of fun doing this and special thanks to Scott--without his vocals and music this song would not exist.

https://www.soundclick.com/artist/default.cfm?bandID=1103122

Lyrics are below
Canít Take It With YouóRoger Sosnowski/Scott Miller


When I pulled up in a flaming red corvette
My kids all thought Iíd lost my mind
Mid life crisis, finally gave into my vices
Too much workin overtime
Penny pinching time is done, gonna have some fun
Starting life over, callingís this day one

Chorus

Cause all my life been† savin more and more
Not really sure what I was savin for
Donít know when my final moment will come
So I might as well enjoy each one
Whether your singing songs with angels
Or fannin flames below
One thingís for certain
Canít take it with ya when ya go, go go,go go, go, go
canít take it when ya go

Big ol mansion on the shores of the Hamptons
that 60 year old bottle of scotch
fancy diamond ring, or whateverís your thing
Like brand new Rolex watch
Now Iím lookin at life in a brand new light
From now onógonna do things right

Chorus

Cause all my life been† savin more and more
Not really sure what I was savin for
Donít know when my final moment will come
So I might as well enjoy each one
Whether your singing songs with angels
Or fannin flames below
One thingís for certain
Canít take it with ya when ya go, go go,go go, go, go
canít take it when ya go

Bridge

all lifeís problems are too heavy to hold
Now itís time to lighten the load

Chorus

Cause all my life been† savin more and more
Not really sure what I was savin for
Donít know when my final moment will come
So I might as well enjoy each one
Whether your singing songs with angels
Or fannin flames below
One thingís for certain
Canít take it with ya when ya go, go go,go go, go, go
canít take it when ya go

Really nice hook on the chorus and overall just nicely done. Definitely would like to hear with a full production. If I'm forced to give a suggestion, consider trying to make it a bit more universal by not directly saying "mid-life crisis" or mentioning kids. Maybe just "my friends" all thought I lost my mind. The idea is to make it appeal to anyone feeling burned out on too much work or materialism, no matter the age or stage in life.

Roger,

Terrific write, very catchy . . . and nice performance. Tom Petty vibe to it . . . and someone else that I canít quite put a name to . . . a 90s band sound to itódunno. Ant has a nice suggestion, assuming you have commercial aspirations with this. And, yes, as strong as the performance is, Iíd be curious to hear a full production. Excellent work!!

Kind regards,

Deej

Dreaming about a flaming red corvette
Champagne and caviar on my mind
Mid life crisis or give into your vices
Tired of workin overtime
Rice-n-beans in the kitchen 'cause the mortgage is due
What my Momma always told me sure came true

'Cause all my life I've been wantin' more and more
Never really sure what I was workin' for
Everybody's final moment will come
So we might as well enjoy each one
Whether reachin' for the angels
Or fannin' flames below
One thingís for certain
Canít take it with ya when ya go, go go,go go, go, go
canít take it when ya go

Big ol mansion on the shores of the Hamptons
that 60 year old bottle of scotch
fancy diamond ring, or whateverís your thing
Like a brand new Rolex watch
Now Iím lookin at life in a brand new light
From now onógonna do things right

Lifeís problems gettin' too expensive to hold
Itís time to lighten the load

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
