Two things...

1) This song should be played LOUD.

and, more importantly...

2) This demo was produced by MIKE ZANESKI. smile

Nurse Yes ©2010 Robert George

Well, I found a James Bond marathon on TBS
Drank a six-pack
Lazy, nice n slow
While I kicked back
Watchin’ Dr. No
Then I drifted off and dreamed about Nurse Yes
She’s exotic, tall and purty
But my dream was kinda durty
So I better not git too specific
Black ops didn’t want no set backs
So I landed with a jet pack
On an island in the south Pacific
I’m a lethal, smooth and loyal British secret agent man
Mister, I was sent to foil all her crazy, evil plans

Buddy, she was half Hawaiian…she was half Samoan
I’d be growlin’ like a lion, when she got me goin’
In high heels and leather skirts or a halter sun dress
She would heal you where you hurt so they called her Nurse Yes

Lookin’ back the whole thing was a little comical
Big oasis
Off the Navy charts
Hidden bases
Guns with poison darts
Her assistant was a midget with a monocle
Well, my lighter was laser
And my tie-clip was a taser
And in minutes I took out her goon squad
Ruined all that she’d been plannin’
Sabotaged the neutron cannon
Pointed at a shuttle on a moon shot
She hopped in a hidden boat and she got away alone
Found a dinghy and I rowed to an island of her clones

Buddy, she was half Hawaiian…she was half Samoan
I’d be growlin’ like a lion, when she got me goin’
In high heels and leather skirts or a halter sun dress
She would heal you where you hurt so they called her Nurse Yes

[i]Woke up feelin’ foggy, and I slipped and hit my head
Sat up feelin’ groggy, in a big electric bed
Then a pretty nurse, said I had a mild concussion
Then I saw her curves, closed my eyes and started blushin’

Buddy, she was half Hawaiian…she was half Samoan
I’d be growlin’ like a lion, when she got me goin’
In high heels and leather skirts or a halter sun dress
She would heal you where you hurt so they called her Nurse Yes

Was it dreams or was it medication
She had schemes for global domination
Then she disappeared like she’d been raptured
She was too important to be captured…

I think this is my favorite song I’ve heard from you, which is saying something, because you’ve posted some great stuff. This one is catchy, clever, and completely original. Mike does a terrific job on the arrangement . . . and kills the vocals. Really, really well done!

If I had one nit, it’s the ending, which seems to fade a bit too much, at least for me, given what’s gone before. But that’s a personal preference—others will love it, so take with a big grain of salt. Congrats to you both on a terrific song!

Best regards,

Deej

Thanks everybody. I'm absolutely happy with how it turned out. When I wrote it, I didn't think it could ever be turned into a song. Imagine my smile when I first heard what Mike did with it. Along with the Underground Railroad medley and Fade to Blonde, he's produced tracks for me I don't think Nashville could've done. That's Not Who I Am Anymore, as well. At least not without spending thousands of dollars. JPF should be grateful to have him.

Well Done All

Would love to hear Less words in The Chorus , with emphasis

on NURSE YES perhaps repeating it on the same line

Stretching the Hook out NURSE (1b) YES '3b)------ X two

and that way it could be re written more musically

One of the most important principles of songwriting is to remember that a good song is a partnership of many different components, all working together to produce a satisfying musical experience.

In that respect, song components are either enhancing or compromising their combined effects.

Enjoyed my listen. Noticed the genre listed on SoundCloud was "Country" and I chuckled. No nits. Thanks for sharing, Couch... (or should I say "Wabash Cannibal?"...and I agree, Zaneski is "in his element."

Thanks again. smile

Dave, I heard about 30 minutes of modern country while at a McDonald's yesterday. I think country is flatlining and could use a Nurse Yes. wink


Ps the above post should in no way be construed as a threat to Alec Baldwin...
