THIS is another song from the play we're writing called "Hooked"
In this part of the play, a female should be singing but for now it's me :-)

please listen... http://www.soundclick.com/bands/0/calvinstewart
read the play here - http://hookedthemusical.weebly.com/



I Think Mama Cares For Him ( Emma sings )
words and music by Lisa Gundling/C. Stewart (Jan. 2014)

I think mama cares for him
I think she really does
She gave him some chocolate drops
Just because, just because

I wonder if he likes her too
I wonder if he cares
I wonder if he he's feeling blue
I wonder if he's feeling scared

I think mama cares for him
I think she truly might
She gave him some lollipops
So that he'll be alright

I wonder if he likes me too
I wonder if he cares
I wonder if he he's feeling blue
I wonder if he's said his prayers

I think mama cares for him
I think it may be so
She gave him a Slurpee
So he doesn't feel low

I wonder if he likes her too
I wonder if he cares
I wonder if he he's feeling blue
I wonder if he's feeling scared

Hi Calvin -- Awwww...you did a great job on this! That's just how I imagined sweet little Emma singing -- except with a higher voice! LOL! -- Lisa

Hi Neil -- Thanks so much -- so glad it works for you! Well, I thought I was just a writer, but it turns out I'm a casting director, too, and, let me tell you, it's NOT an easy job! -- Lisa

Nice and simple! there is a sound that I can't figure out what it is. It's happening sparsely over the lyrics:
I wonder if he likes her too
I wonder if he cares
WHAT IS THAT? It's really cool

@Lisa 'casting director" tell them where to cast there fishing lines?

Hi dog,

Thanks a bunch for tuning in.
What you're hearing is LOW STRINGS with a flanger on it.

Hey Calvin and Lisa,

As a stand alone song, I would say huh ? But as a piece incorporated into what you are doing, it all works.

As I see the plot thus far..... what your play is, to me, is an observational piece on life, and with that in mind, I find the observation both insightful, mentally challenging, and relevant to the overall theme.

Simplicity and attention to detail is sometimes hard to achieve, but it works well here.

There are, however, a number of songs like this, in the work, which are "slow". Perhaps this one could be taken way out there and given ( pehaps ) a camp knock off of...... name any musical.... just to keep things going ?

Great ideas, but how about a change in tempo ( without altering the underlying feeling ) ?

cheers, niteshift

PS - I love Sienfield for observational humour, and I really enjoy what you guys are going for musical observational humour....... or rather, insight.

Hello nitshift,

Thanks a bunch for taking enough interest in what we're doing to give such nice suggestions.
I tend to be "slow" musically, not sure if ANYBODY wants me speeding into their ears, but I'll certainly consider what you're saying.

Calvin

Hi niteshift,

It's so nice to get your thoughtful take on this, in relation to the musical! You've given us another dimension here to think about and play around with. (I just put in a request to Calvin to do all the songs in slow, medium and fast, and also, short, longer and longest, in triplicate- LOL!)

I love your "observational humor" assessment! The Chinese half of me believes, like the ancient Chinese did, that it's very important to accurately and specifically name things. If you can name something with pinpoint precision, then it helps you to advance what you're doing. For that reason, I guess, their language is much more specific than the English language. We might say we have a "nephew" but the Chinese have a different name for each nephew in the family, I believe. So, if you hear the word, you know, "that's his sister's third son."

So, thanks for helping us to name this -- it will help us to advance it!

Lisa
