Piano Crazy Blues

Been so busy with work, rehearsing a play and "other stuff" that I completely forgot to mention my last two YouTube vids. The first is "Piano Crazy Blues", which originally stemmed from an idea I had about a guy who's so life is falling apart, but that's OK, because he's still got his piano. This didn't come out exactly like that, which is just fine, because I like it anyway, and it still leaves room for the original concept later. (the second is 'Mr. Lennon')

I kind of like the fact that none of the lines here really 'scan', but the song's got a nice rhythm anyway.



Piano Crazy Blues
Lyrics by William Hoover

You took me for what I am
Any request played on demand
And for what it's worth
You really don't fit in my plans

And just so you know
Real dreams happen when awake
'cause nothing comes between me
And my faithful Steinway

Now along here come
These piano crazy blues
And if you really plan to leave
You don't win, you only lose

And no matter who you are
And no matter what you do
Everyone from time to time
Gets those piano crazy blues

I've got these seven chords
And I gave them all to you
But I found a life-long friend
Who'll never forsake me like so many do

And no matter who you are
And no matter what you do
Everyone from time to time
Gets those piano crazy blues
Everyone from time to time
Gets those piano crazy blues
