Go Billy Go
on: January 18, 2021, 14:49:23
Elsewhere on the Kitchen we have a little song prompt discussion going. @Dutchbeat set us a difficult prompt about a goat accused of robbery. This is how I interpreted it: https://www.reverbnation.com/stevegrayandtheultrarayviolets/song/32397407-go-billy-go

Go Billy Go

If it's a Mazda that you're after
He can steal a 323
Caught a hoof in the sun-roof
Now he's in police custody

Vigilantes taking chance
Vowed they wouldn't set him free
His case is tragic, no black-magic
Now he's in police custody

State of Kwara, robbed a car and
His shape-shifting got him free
Black and white coat, gave away Goat
Now he's in police custody

In Nigeria, law is clearer
Don't you try armed robbery
Such a goat in new fur coat
Sitting in police custody
Today I'm only one day older. Do you think my hair's turned grey?

Totally world music goes surf or something like that. Very nice, whatever the label you stick to it.

Highly original!

Kind regards, Gus

Ha, ha @redmando  .... a crazy psychedelic djembe jam .... about an evil goat ..... with pictures of llamas or alpacas or whatever they are!

So funny!   ;D

Actually good!

@redmando  - this is really good! I was already marveled at how you managed to come up with 4 well-written stanzas to @Dutchbeat 's peculiarly difficult prompt.... and now that I'm listening to the sung version, it is evident that you managed to create the perfect musical accompaniment! Quirky, fun and fitting! Well done! :D

Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment @LePlongeur , @Bill from November Sound , @Dutchbeat and @Rachel_D .

I don't know how this song quickly emerged from @Dutchbeat 's off-the-wall prompt. I had great fun doing it and hopefully this comes through in the recording.
