The Kickstarter Song!

This weekend I’m recording a promotional video for my upcoming Kickstarter project. Why Kickstarter? Because it’s time to record a new album!! You can preview the text version of the project here, but keep in mind there may be some last minute changes over the next few days.

But what better way to raise funds for an album full of new songs, than writing new songs to promote the project?! I’m thinking of doing this one 60s style with a few background singers. With apologies for any wonky formatting issues, any thoughts?

THE KICKSTARTER SONG [[Draft Lyrics]]

Verse
If you help fund my album (oh-oh-oh)
I will be very happy (happy-joy-joy)
But if you don’t donate (boo)
I will cry into my green tea (cry-yai-yai)

Recording is expensive (yes it is)
Don’t want to GarageBand it (drum loops!)
I hope you understand it (what’s that?)
This desire to record for

Chorus
(Me?) you can be part of something special
(Me?) you can be part of something grand
(Us?) together we can help each other so
(You?) And assuage my starving ego

Verse
I hope you will fund my album (yes-oh-yes)
I realize this ain’t subliminal (like you ever are)
But don’t think I’m criminal (no comment)
Trying to sell wit over substance (amen)

Where was I - my ADHD (butterfly)
Often gets the better of me (why-oh-why)
But with you and Kickstarter
I can sing “LUKE I AM YOUR FATHER

Chorus
(Me?) you can be part of something special
(Me?) you can be part of something grand
(Us?) together we can help each other so
(You?) And assuage my starving ego
[Solo]

Verse
So I thank you for your time (parsley-sage)
And I hope you will find (rosemary and)
That vocals sound much better
In three part harmony
Click me click me click me click me (ew?)
Click me click me click me click me (what?)
Click me click me click me click me (ok!)
Click this Kickstarter liiiiiiiiiink (liiiiiiiiiink)
