Do I hear impeachment?
on: October 29, 2019, 08:55:20
Over the years, I've written hunderds and hundreds of songs based on the English verse form 'Hickledy pickledy'. In Dutch: Olleke Bolleke or dubbele dactylus.
Only after Drs. P.'s death a couple of years ago , I started writing complete lyrics loosely based on that form.

Two sets of four lines.
6 syllables per line.
Second line of the second set is one word of 6 syllables.
Last line of each set (to your own liking) 4 or 6 syllables.
Last lines of each set must rhyme.
This one = 3 sets of those.
Voil!

Do I hear impeachment?

Trotsky was removed from
a picture of Stalin
almost a century
foul politics

Leaked talks with journalists
autoritarian
or blatently sexist
ideas 'bout chicks

I
Do I hear impeachment?
suspect misdemeanors
low crimes by high people
great journalists

II
Caused by a new trend in
sustainability
renewed trust that the truth
is sorely missed

The first lady looks great
seems like that's important
Fuels Max's jealousy
glued to Will's side

Don's greatest enemy
audiovisuals
will not convince his wife
nothing to hide

I
Do I hear impeachment?
suspect misdemeanors
low crimes by high people
great journalists

II
Caused by a new trend in
sustainability
renewed trust that the truth

I am still trying to find my voice writing English lyrics.
I still struggle.
But I do give it a try.
Enjoy!
Kind regards, Gus

Man, have I ever missed hearing your stuff @LePlongeur . You have such a unique musical persona and this one is emblematic of that.

Great lyrics! Great guitar tones as well. I like how the main guitar is panned.

Cool tune, Gus.

Nice to see that I am not the only Kitcheneer using Soundclick now.  ;)

Hola @LePlongeur

As a non-English speaking person I find your song perfectly pronounced and understandable and perfectly respecting the format in question ... It also has a very English style, and an almost monastic touch .... Very well the guitar, reinforces the story.
Everything is messed up in the world, that's what we get in our eyes, hate, hate, and lately impeachment ... ::thumb::

I gave in to the call for SC for want of a uniform format for Kitchen and Kitchen radio.
But it was giving in. And not love.
Most of all, I Very much dislike the bullying way that other peoples music is played after my (or your) music is done. Music that has no relation whatsoever to the music we choose to hear.

So now that picosong has stopped, I had to go and check alternatives. And found a very good example here, in the Kitchen.
A nice and no frills thing. Love simplicity.
Inshallah or Deo volente I have unpuzzled some puzzling things and I will be able to post Sha la la mixture to make up for lost time.

Thank you for listening @Leonard Scaper !
And I am more than glad to return the flavor (the apple mafia oked that! What do they know?).
Kind regards, Gus

Hola @Mora Amaro La Loba
Funny (if you dont mind my saying so) that I have a Ukrainian friend and shes called Luba. Which means love.
And your name looks almost the same but with an entire different meaning.

You know how much I envy your work and of your spouse. Thats why I like it very much that you like my songs. And take the time to listen to them.
Thank you for the compliments!
Kind regards, Gus

Why late? @Chris Spruit
I never knew that there was a deadline.

And of course the idea is to kick ass a bit. Not that I think anyone is listening.
The line about high people is a variation on: got low friend in high places. I had doubts about the high people bit. Coming from Amsterdam the whole world seems to think that a state of high is the norm over here.

I love it that you listened. Thank you very much.
Kind regards, Gus

Stately subversion @LePlongeur ... stately being the tempo & style which is gently anthemic ( I could imagine some choral oohs/aahs  working nicely behind the chorus)... subversion in the lyrics- I like!
Guitar arpeggios & tone are cool too ::e-guitar3::

Thank you so much @Mo for your time and compliments.
And welcome aboard!

I will be checking the Me chapter to see if you made an introduction.
And if not, I hope you will find the time to do so.

Thank you again and I am curious what you would post yourself!
Kindregards, Gus

I apologize. Although Chris is my 'next door neighbour' and I understand everything she say or write, my German is really horrible.

So this is what I wanted to do since  @Chris Spruit wrote her very humoristic post:

Normalerweise bat ich einen Freundin um Hilfe. Aber jetzt habe ich es selbst versucht.
Also auf deutsch.

Was fr eine sehr nette Antwort, die Sie geschrieben haben. Ich habe viel darber gelacht.
Go go go, Chris!
Danke schn.
Herzliche Gre, Gus

Specially the was tricky, since we don't have that letter in Dutch.

Well, this is it. I hope you like it!
Kind regards, Gus

@LePlongeur Gus, your german  is perfect, but you can say "Du zu mir "  :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:
I am impressed , not only from your song and lyrics. I know you don't  spend much time thinking about perfect mixes and stuff like that,
but you are the perfect MIX, good sustainable ingrediences. :-)

Due to a technicality, this post was quoted without including my extra text.
Would one of the kind mods get this one  out?
Thanks very much for helping out.
