The Devil must be laughing...

In the spirit of "community musicianship" I offer this title for collaboration smile

Here's a thought to kick off...

Embrace eternity
Or the future
Is your enemy

HAD TO GIVE UP ANALOG:

THE DEVIL IS LAUGHING OUT LOUD
HE'S SLICK WILLIE IF YOU DOUBT
BRINGS YOU A WOMAN WHO'S STOUT
WRESTLES WITH YOU ON THE COUCH

NICK-NAMED ANNA LOG DUCK
SHE DROVE A LOGGIN' TRUCK
FOOLIN' 'ROUND WITH 300 PLUS
SHE HAS PUT ME ON CRUTCH

I'VE GIVEN UP HEAVY ANNA LOG
TRADED HER FOR A DIGITAL HOG

I like the digital angle though... seems now that we're all connected, we're all a whole lot easier to piss off! smile

Sounds like a good start. Reminded me of the song the late Joe Diffie had about the devil dancing in empty pockets. Something so many of us constantly complain about.

One I love to have a collaboration on: a traditional country ballad with the title "From Lovers to Friends, Then Back to Lovers Again". One typical of some of the old country dues in, say, the Conway and Loretta style. Any potential takers?

How about "My other lover's friend again..."
Then the "twist" could be that they're the same person wink

Who's my lover tonight
My friend wants to know
Can't tell where she comes from
Above or below
I never know why or when
I'll be my other lover's friend again smile

The Devil must be laughing
'Caus my angel is capricious
She's wearing black and red tonight
But I'm not superstitious

The color of her lips
The smell of her perfume
Oh, but my friend's eyes
Dare me to presume

She's dancing close against me
In electric candlelight
Her hair smells just like jasmine
On a cool September night

My friend likes to pretend
She's someone else awhile
And I just can't resist
Her soft seductive smile

The devil must be laughing
As he looks at the church today.
Decked out in earthly garb
No stitch of Godliness on display.

She looks nothing like her maker
She's hard to recognize.
Adorned with lust and pride
It's a dreadful disguise.

Why has she changed her image?
How could she let this happen?
I can see him stroking his pointed beard
The devil must be laughing.

Lol... Very Shakespearean... Hamlet I think...
"God hath given you one face yet you make yourself another..."
Welcome aboard Diron smile

How about "Laughing At the Devil" for a hook?

Ha! That should be easy smile

A million reasons to complain
But I must be on the level
I'm really not insane
I'm just laughing at the Devil

Lol, let's see what you got DT!
