They don’t answer to “please”… Song 77

Well, it’s ol’ St. Paddy’s day today, and in the immortal words of Homer J. Simpson: “AWW, it’s been St. Patrick’s day for hours and I’m still not drunk yet!” No time for that though, cleaning, cooking and writing and recording and the world is spinning around my head. Whee! Gotta keep the better angels in my ear.

I went back to my original idea from yesterday of a funeral dirge sounding song. But then… I think I almost had it, until I had to go and rock out. Oh, and add bagpipes and ebows. All in all, I think it turned out quite nicely…

Song 77: “A Better Saint”

It’s gonna take a better saint, with a bigger stick
It’s gonna take a better saint, with a bigger stick
To drive these serpents out

They’ll drag you down and spit you out and keep you on your knees
They’ll drag you down and spit you out and keep you on your knees
They’ll kick you while you’re down

You’ll wake up when they smack you down, then you’ll realize
You’ll wake up when they smack you down, then you’ll realize
They don’t answer to “please”

It’s gonna take a stronger back and a bigger head
It’s gonna take a stronger back and a bigger head
To save yourself

The firestorm is spinning, swirling around your head
The firestorm is spinning, swirling around your head
The world comes crashing down

You’ll wake up when they smack you down, then you’ll realize
You’ll wake up when they smack you down, then you’ll realize
They don’t answer to “please”

You’ll wake up when they smack you down, then you’ll realize
You’ll wake up when they smack you down, then you’ll realize
They don’t answer to “please”

It’s gonna take a better saint, with a bigger stick
It’s gonna take a better saint, with a bigger stick
To drive these serpents out
