Here’s the rewrite of the song I posted this week last year.
Commence the clapping.
Anyway, for this rewrite I didn’t really know what to do. I never really liked this song to begin with. It’s okay, but I think it’s a little too much of, “Hey, listen to this, I’m clever, and I’m telling you how it should be.” That ain’t no way to write or sing a song. There’s none of your own self in it if you’re just going at someone else’s way of living. So I tried to turn it around a little. It’s sort of successful, I supposed. I basically just rearranged the words and made a sort of repeating verse line.
The song’s more aimed at me now. Says I only been doing one thing and how am I supposed to know anything else or care about anything else. And that ain’t no way to live.
Or maybe it doesn’t say that. Maybe I’m analyzing it too much. What do you think?
