This is a crazy little thing that arrived by accident. I had taken out this old Casio keyboard (MT-46) and was playing some almost totally inept blues/boogie-woogie licks, and decided to record it on the iPhone sitting there live, with the crappy little Casio speaker next to the iPhone mic. using this musicmemo app which adds drums. SInce my playing was so out of time it gave the virtual drummer some difficult decisions to make -eg- which mistakes to highlight! Imported it to my iPhone, garage band, where I decided to add a narration of some kind, and thought up this idea of people in 1905 getting into a time machine and coming to 2019 and seeing a carnival barker as president... Once i was done, messed around with the ending for the hell of it in audacity. Have fun on this warped but short sonic journey!
Ladies and gentleman welcome to the worlds fair of 19 ought five
When you step into our time machine you’ll be glad you are alive
Journey to a future world 114 years from now
They’ll have machines for everything even milking a cow
Carnival barkers like me will have a curious fate
One of us will become president of the united states!
Yes from the ranks of swindlers who sell you patent medicine
And run those three card monte games, make you think you’ll win
It dices, it slices, it crawls on its belly like a reptile
Then becomes our great leader, morality defiled
Step this way, just twenty cents at the gate
See the future carnival barker president of the united states
