Walt Disney's Hands

Description
Another one for the father-daughter canon. Unlike many of my songs, this one is more than 90% true. I hope it doesn't land me a lawsuit.

Lyrics
Walt Disney’s hands are in my pocket
He has stolen my last dollar bill
Walt Disney’s arms
Are big enough to harm me
He says he doesn’t want to but he will

Mickey Mouse’s copyright will last a thousand years
All of us will live and die one nation under ears
All the toys he sold to me
All the princess poetry
It’s irresistible to little girls
And I’ve got two
One’s got straight hair
The other one’s got curls

So first it’s Hannah Montana
Then it’s a Fairy Parade
Before I remark
That I’ve always hated theme parks
The final reservations have been made

CHORUS

I want to say no
I want it to stop
But there’s cross-promotion
In every aisle of every shop
On every page of every book
Each direction that I look

Walt Disney’s hands are all around me
He is taking away my control
Walt Disney’s heart is trying hard to love me
But I think he wants my money, not my soul

All the toys he sold to me
All the princess poetry
It’s irresistible to little girls
And I’ve got two
One’s got straight hair
The other one’s got curls

Careful
Michael.. you don't want to piss Disney off. I totally get this. I wish I would have thought of this. Only nit is the in the mix the drums are somewhat over bearing and the vocals are a little murky. This is still a shining example of your talent as a songwriter.

Peace
Guy

walt disney
have you seen the family guy 'multiverse' episode. stewie & brian find themselves in a universe where everything is drawn by disney...check it out. okay back to this song. wow michael....how do you make everything sound so perfect. and who's the chick doing the harmony. this is again very commercial. that's two in a row....are you selling out to the mainstream for a truck load of dollars? and can i have some? great creation - loving your politics.

Classy work
As Guy said this really showcases your ability as a songwriter.

Lovely sly lyrics, "I think he wants my money not my soul" Splendid stuff!

Loved it.

I went to EuroDisney with the kids a few years ago and it frightened me.

Cheers

Absolutely wonderful lyrics!
Brilliant songwriting Michael. On top of that - the chorus hook is totally infectious as the drum mix comes into full balance - nice shift in the bridge. Most importantly, it is very melodic and sets comfortably and sing-a-longably (even a word?) in the brain. I've come back to it twice.
Oh, and as someone who deals with copyright issues a lot - you're good :)

been there, felt those hands
i like that mechanical falsetto backup and the electric drums. but most of all that super cool 80's pop synth break around 3:10, that's standout man.

i used to hate all that disney stuff too but when i had a kid i realized that i actually loved it, i was just hating it because i thought that's what adults were supposed to do. now i'm as much a little girl as she is ha.

This is an interesting topic. I believe there are people and moments that have good intentions but I know the company as a whole sit around a table in a dark room deciding the future of our childrens thought processes. Good track all around. Love the lyrics.

Michael,
You are not only a great songwriter, your interpretation is always brilliant, vocals and instrumentation, with a perfect production. Once again a great proof with this new tune. Enjoyable listen, thanks...

Whoa
Very different sound than I am used to hearing from you. I guess it is your turn this time, lol. Love the "mickey mouse" line how the vocal ascends like that. I think this song would appeal to children, could hear it on a children's show. By the way, I have always hated theme parks too, or more to the point, the long lines to wait in. Good tune, very well done!

Isn't this so true

Wow
What a great arrangement. Unique but not distracting. In fact, it moves your theme along so much better. And the subject matter hits CRAZY close to home. I've got a 5 year old and she's all about it. In fact, she doesn't like the Hannah Montana show, but LOVES the Hannah Montana merchandise. What gives? Great song!

Lyrics
A song with a purpose and one that expresses a commonly held thought, ( amongst many if not all) Just a song that had to be written and an expression that had to be expressed. great stuff. well done. Mark

It`s nice,
but I don`t like the drum machine a lot.
All that synthetic sounds are bloodless.
Another thing is that beats are not always in time, or am I mad, could be, too! :o)

Walt Disney's Hands
Love this line "All of us will live and die one nation under ears". Well structured, and the melody supports the mood of the lyric. I think the drums are up a few too many db in the mix.
