Captain Howdy's kitchen visit

Someone talked me in to doing this song-writing-challenge about ghosts in kitchens - usually the only spirits I keep in mine come in bottles.
So I've had a bash - I though Captain howdy from the exorcist would be appropriate  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway it's here if you want to have a listen.
Have a good week and happy writing.
I have a full week of meeting with parents - now where did I leave that spirit???

That`s fast! A theatrical fun song @Susantaylor - I hear a bit of Viv Stanshall in this. The conversation at the end is cool :pompom: I didn`t catch all the lyrics- please post them.
I sure hope the ghost doesn`t have to be in the kitchen for the Challenge btw.

OMG @Susantaylor . .. my mind is blown! You had ghosts, you had kitchen, you had food preparation ...... somehow the ghost made an appearance at the end and you conversed with him ....? And you made it sound like a nostalgic waltz ...... you see what she did there @Dutchbeat ? .... voice changes, dialog .... all created in a day?  :o :bonk:
Wow!
Just wow.

Spirits all gone after parents dropping by?
Sounds like my father in law paid you a visit.
For him it was always booze o’clock and the living proof that things soaked in alcohol last longer.

And a very delicate song to whisper in my left ear. No honestly, love the song.
Lots of success with the challenge.
Kind regards, Gus

Good, fun and surprising @Susantaylor  :)

I didn't get scared, I got entertained instead and that was done in a great way. Perfect ending with "the discussion", very relaxed, I didn't see that one coming although I was waiting for the featured artist to appear (...thought there was a ghost in there, but luckily it wasn't... I get jump-scared easily  :blackgrin:)

@realkevm @LePlongeur @Bill from November Sound @Dutchbeat @robertkc @Layerson

Wow thank you all for your amazing comments :)
I've had a manic few days with work and this really made me smile  :dance:
I actually haven't touched any alcohol as children + hangovers + parents do not mix well  :lol:
@Layerson Benjamin Berkl is the alter-ego male voice at the end., because head voices also deserve to have names.  ;D
I'm really glad you all enjoyed it, after all it's all just a bit of fun isn't it? :) :) :)

Lyrics: @robertkc

I came back from the shopping,
I couldn't believe my eyes,
I went into the kitchen,
and was in for a big surprise,
The plates were all broken,
the kitchen a mess,
the biscuits all missing,
just vegetables left (oh no)

So I cleaned up the broken dishes,
and put the shopping all away,
but as I looked into the fridge,
a ghostly note blew me away,
my names captain howdy,  (Easter egg alert - Captain howdy is the ghost from the exorcist - a little bit of an extra joke)
your biscuits were stale,
I'm haunting your fridge,
so please fill it with ale.

My suspicions began to grow,
as a chill ran down my spine,
I knew this ghost was lying,
as the biscuits were perfectly fine,
Suddenly the lights cut,
My heart beating fast,
I felt a hand on my shoulder,
and jumped how I gasped.

end conversation....
Susan: I suppose you think you're funny
Benji: Yes actually, come on I had you going,
Susan: and the broken plates? bit irresponsible
Benji: They're old, I bough new ones
Susan: You are a total wonky tanker
Benji: Yeah but a funny one.
Susan: Grow up
Benji: Fat chance

Hi Susan, your song is pretty cool, listening to your other ones shows that you manage different styles ... this one is another challenge, the result is funny and cute and your voice fits perfectly with it ! I love the end  :D ::thumb::

Hi @Susantaylor

I find the style of your song very entertaining and your vocals are great, they have a very funny colour here,  the idea is very good but... It would be great if you share the lyrics, there are a lot of lines I do not understand by listenig. 
Big kiss for you!  ::heart::

This song OMG ….
Why do I keep coming back to this song?
Maybe it's the carousel waltz rhythm. Maybe the unorthodox "fit all the words in" phrasing.
Maybe I'm stuck in a loop of SoundCloud, Songwriters in the Kitchen purgatory … oh well … it works, right?
Good entry @Susantaylor
Too funny.  :D

Thank you so much for the compliment Bill  ;D I really appreciate it. I'm having a tough week with some of my teen students so this has really brightened up my day! Thank you!
