    Content to stand alone
    Waiting, watching, guarding Granny's home
    His face reflecting simple joy
    But he is not a happy Plaster boy
    "Careful sonny, not too close
    Unless you want a lethal dose
    of hardening..."
    Patiently waiting for some shade
    Wishing he could run away
    Supressing any urge to roam
    Such devotion from a little gnome
    I once saw a calico that thought he could fly
    ANd then the lanky Doberman that tinkled in my eye
    A pacifict by nature, with amble common sense
    But if I had my druthers, I'd rather be a fence
    Now Granny, she's a good one, she shines me now and then
    ANd come around this springtime, I'm due for paint again
    On keeping Granny comfy, I try and earn my keep
    I'm just wishing I had some eyelids, so I could get some sleep

    :bassist:

    Well, I once stared terified at a small group of yard gnomes that some smarty pants had positioned out in the woods. I stood in terror whispering and mumbling for what seemed like hours until I began to grow braver and slowly and carefully approach them, sneaking up on them until I was close enough to touch one. Only when I had reached out and touch a gnome could I really know that they were not actually living creatures. ...but, then again - I promised myself I wouldn't tell chemical abuse stories here, so I shouldn't have even mentioned that. Just know, under the right conditions - those little gnomes are creepy as heck!

    So D

    I'm thinking to the tune of
    "Takin' care of Business"
    everyday etc

    The rhyme structure works well ...
    I added a few syllables to make it flow ...

    :D

    Uuuhhhhhh... I shoulda given proper credit when I copy & pasted that in - But I'm sure Mr. Claypool doesn't mind you playing with his lyrics.


    Good eye on the structure not working real smoothly -You've gotta throw in some howls and crazy bass riffs to fill out those parts ;)

    BTW - Do yourself a favor and go buy Les Claypool's Holy Mackerel Presents: A Highball With The Devil. It's a Claypool solo project from a few years back. It's developed from bits and pieces Les recorded out on tour and in his spare time over the years and features some really neat players. Recorded, mixed and produced by Les at Rancho Relaxo (Claypool's home recording studio) Les plays drums on a few tracks as well as all of the EBG, EUB, and vocals I don't remember if he did any guitar tracks but IIRC there is one or 2 tracks that are only Les, no other musicians. I love Delicate Tendrils - killer groove with spoken word vocals by Henry Rollins. It's one of my top 20 favorite albums ever! Everybody that reads this, go buy it.
