So here's another one where I (often) try to force an unusual melody onto an unusual chord progression moving largely in fifths. Lyrics came last. Warning: I whistle.
This came of Fawmish thoughts this month, so I need to fawm it since the place is still open feb 28 night ... even though I didn't fawm this year, I guess.
One-take guy'n'guitar this is so I remember how it goes. This definitely messes with the key center, so I'm claiming the week-4 checkmark.
Better to Do
C C/B C/A C/G F // F/E Dm
G C#o F# B // E A D // C
V1: Get a new hobby, watch some TV
Maybe I can straighten out my toolbox
Order an edu-(ma?)-cational book
maybe Solzhenitsyn and gulags
Chorus: Lookin for something better to do
(than) sit around thinking of you
Gripin’ and grumpin since we been through
sittin’ here thinking of you (what can I do now?)
V2: Li-nel scale freight train, hovering drone
maybe learn to tie a few flies
Learn my geology, find a few rocks,
sell them on the avenue (right) out of a box
