Hi Everyone,

This one recently fell out of my noggin.

I'm hearing some smoky Cajun flavored deep south swamp water music.

   Alligator Soup

Verse 1:
I'm gonna make me
some alligator soup
that's what I'm gonna do
yes I am, yes I am
gonna add some okra
add some tomatoes
add some ham broth
gonna be good... goddamn

Chorus:
Up here in the city
I'm gonna sit here on the stoop
get my big spoon out
and eat my alligator soup.

Verse 2:
Cuz'n up from Flo'da
brought some gator tail
man, I was a droolin'
yes I was, yes I was,
I had all the fixin's
frozen in my fridge
I pulled them out so fast...
faster than a gator's jaws

Bridge:
Some people put in
lots of celery
man, that kind of eatin'
don't do a thing for me

Repeat Chorus:
I'm a lyricist seeking music writers to work with.

Loving these lyrics........

I hope somebody with a bit of bayou in them will take a shot at them.

Very entertaining @smajor!

I am far too 'English' for it myself, but hope you get a collaborator, as this promises to be fun!
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

I'm gonna make me
some alligator soup
that's what I'm gonna do
gonna add some okra
and some tomatoes too.
Cook it in a pot
nearly all day long..
alligator soup gona be damn good.

chorus
Up here in the city
its just a wave or a nod...
ain`t noth`n like the bottoms where I come from...
Sit`n on a stump fish`n all day long
maybe catch you a cajan girl to cook it all up.
thats where I come from...

Verse 2:
Cuz'n up from Flo'da
brought some gator tail
man" thats all it takes, to take  me right back home.
I had all the fixin's
frozen in my fridge...
alligator soup gona be damn good.

Bridge:
Some people put in
lots of celery
man, that kind of eatin'
don't do a thing for me




chorus

its just a wave or a nod...
ain`t noth`n like the bottoms where I come from...

Hi  @Lane ,

Thank  you for the effort you've put into this.

I'm not seeing a link to the music. That's where I make my final estimation. I'm having some problems with the lyrics as I see them, but I really need to hear the music before I finally decide.

Looking forward to hearing what you've got.

Later,
Stan

 Hi @smajor

it would be  simple stuff basic chords and that south kinda progression.. , but I could make a small track tomorrow and post it here.
I just put stuff on, thought maybe you could use something in it. I`ll put a little noise on if you want..

Hi @Lane ,

I'd like to hear what you've got. Give it to me.

"Basic chords and that south kinda progression" totally works for me as an idea. But I've got to hear the sound  to make a real decision.

Looking forward to hearing what you've got.

Later,
Stan
