Song sketch: Somebody Call the Adults

(copyright by publication, 6/30/11)

Rollicking country with a pit bull-like pedal steel or twangy guitar or both, mid tempo–very tentative structure at this point line-wise but I have chords, a melody, and a hook:

Somebody call the adults
The amateurs have had their way
So this is where we are
And we have come to rue the day
Somebody call the adults
I wish that they were on their way
But we are the adults
Somebody call the adults

The Greatest Generation
Need not fear a bit
Because compared to them
We pretty much
Look
Like
Shit

Somebody call the adults

Aggressive pedal steel or twangy Duane Eddy cum gut bucket guitar solo.

    Don’t be an ‘Inbetweener

    Somebody call the Adults
    Cause no matter the ways we try
    For all the effort, posing and posturing,
    Our years are beyond our wise.
    Somebody call the Adults.

  3. A timely point, succinctly and artfully presented. It’s hard to escape the apparent causation: A dearth of adults seems to be the natural consequence of a culture whose citizens ask more and more to have their important decisions made for them and be treated like helpless children.

    Somebody call the Adults
    For we have declined to such
    That if we don’t get our heads out our asses,
    We’ll not have achieved very much.
    Somebody call the Adults.

    With some tweaking from the master and an approbate melody, you got yourself a song Sir.

    Somebody call the adults

    And we have come to rue the day
    Somebody call the adults

    Somebody call the adults
    I wish that they were on their way

    Somebody call the Adults,
    Our gen has failed in try.
    If we don’t get some fresh adults,
    We can kiss our ass goodbye.
    Somebody call the Adults.
