  1. Great suggestions. I will ponder this. Tony
  2. Yeah, definitely an influence in the music as well as Dylan for the lyrics. He did a similar song called Slow Train Runnin'.
  3. Thanks Gary. I've tried a couple of times to come up with a distinct chorus but have struggled on this one. I tried doing it with some added instruments and harmonies and hoped it was enough. However, from several comments, it seems I've go some more work to do. No problem...I may have to rewrite the chorus lines so they don't exactly match the verse lines meter-wise. I think that is what's messing me up. I will check out those weird sounds at the end. Tony
  4. I know....next to me the guy that sang it IS a professional. He originally was just going to do the guitar work which I think is spectacular, but he loved the song so much he did some vocals )lead and background). Thanks for the listen and comments. Tony
  5. That is a classic line! Ha ha....thanks for the listen and critique. Some good stuff to get me off my lazy butt....I am trying to get a friend to actually sing - she is real good....me....not so much.
  6. I got one on soundcloud from the same person. I just deleted it.
  7. Oops...sorry, had the old link still up....

    Thanks for the read and comments. I'm rewriting this one a bit. getting rid of a verse and adding a bridge (I think). Taking heart to several good comments and suggestions. I am am going to put this to music. I have some ideas in mind. I will post when rewrite done. Thanks, Tony

    Paul, Thanks for the kind words. I have a rudimentary melody in my head for the verses. After considering several of the comments above, I've decided to work on this a bit more. I wrote it pretty fast as just a fun lyric with no real thought to make it a song, but I've changed my mind. I think it will turn out nice. I will post the rewrite when complete for further comments. BTW...I wrote it completely from experience...lol. Leaving in a minute to go swim my daily mile. Got another 25 lbs to lose. Tony

    I honestly didn't think about the imagery throughout the song on this one which is a big oversight since it's defined in the title. I will definitely work on this one. Thanks for the suggestions. Tony

    Thanks for the kind words...I will be tweaking it with kuya's and fabkebab's comments in mind. They are valid.

    Battle of the Bulge

    Hmmm...this gives me a lot to chew on (see what I did there?....) I'm not sure I agree about verse one - the lines tell what I know I SHOULD be doing but just don't do. I think that flows right into the chorus. I do agree with you that vs 3 contradicts the chorus....Dang, I like the idea I have going but not sure how to resolve it.....maybe a bridge where the singer makes up their mind to fight? Thanks for the input. Tony

    Verse 1: I’m twice the man I use to be I swear But it’s not by getting stronger or wise Fast food and I are having an affair And my gut’s become ginormous in size I really should be eating more veggies Counting calories and watching my weight The problem is that food holds me hostage And my hunger is as large as my waist Chorus: Well I can’t touch my toes And it hurts when I button my pants My belt’s on the very last hole Tyin’ shoes, an Olympic event Diet is a four letter word The only thing I refuse to indulge I surrendered as a pris’ner of war In my battle of the bulge Verse 2: The devil brought three boxes of donuts To a meeting that I just couldn't miss The big one with the chocolate and peanuts A temptation that I couldn't resist Thank goodness for my boss who was clumsy And saved me from committing such sin As he dumped the whole container of coffee Saturating all the goodies within Chorus: Well I can’t touch my toes And it hurts when I button my pants My belt’s on the very last hole Tyin’ shoes, an Olympic event Diet is a four letter word The only thing I refuse to indulge I surrendered as a pris’ner of war In my battle of the bulge Verse 3: I'm breaking off the chains of delusion Gotta fin'lly take control of my fate It's time I start avoiding excuses And the food I always pile on my plate God help me 'cause I need a solution I don't wanna be the man that I am Determined I will fight for my freedom So I'll never have to sing it again
