Description
Of all the songs I've written about my wife - this one, in an odd sense, is probably the most literal. I really had fun with this one as I tried to step out of the ballad mode and broaden my horizon so to speak. After recording Racquel's first backing track including her impromtu wolf howl going into the chorus, I knew I needed to make her a more prominent part of the song and bring the backing vocals up in the mix so that it became more of a duet particularly in the chorus, which is also a more literal interpretation of my relationship with my wife.

I thank you for listening.

Lyrics
My girl’s a bit odd
My friends all agree
Could use domesticating
To a certain degree yeah, yeah
Pees outside, howls at stars
Spins around in circles when she sits
Licks my wounds, heals my scars
I forget how weird it can sometimes get

Through thick trees I’m led
Down a moonlit path
Dark figures up ahead,
Says it’s her mom and her dad yeah, yeah
Slanted eyes, gums curled back
Hair upon their neck is full and dense
Drooling jowls, my knees go slack
Her little quirks now seem to all make sense
Cause she was

Chorus:
Raised by
Raised by wolves
My girl is
Crazed by
Crazed by wool – she lives
Out in
Out in the woods - You see,
She likes me tender and seasoned
And I like her wild within reason yeah, yeah

Bridge:
She acts on instinct
Her natural curiosity
Won’t stop staring at
My pulmonary artery oh, no, no, no

You call me crazy
Masochist at best
My love is dangerous
Darwinian test yeah, yeah
Shred my flesh, gnaw my bones
At least I know what she is all about
Stab my back, sticks and stones
Human types still leave me full of doubt

Raised By Wolves has bite
I like this song, it has a theme song quality that makes me think of a superhero show. The voices and guitar work are awesome. Great tune.

Thanks for the download :)

predictably wild... mmm...
Look into those eyes, and when they stare back and gobble you up with a look, you know exactly where you stand each time... unlike many other humans... I got me one too :-) I bet this song makes L. wag her tail with delight, it sure sounded great to me. Excellent lyric writing and guitar playing & songsmithing.
ttfn,

That's wild (no pun intended)! The song is such a fun listen and so well written! So much going on but it all works seamlessly! Great vocals (lead and backgrounds). Killer production and mix! Downloaded!

Really appreciate the comments - it was a fun song to do. Honestly, I got the idea while she was peeing in the neighbors yard . . . just before she knocked over their garbage can.

Killer vocals. Killer lyrics. Backing vox are stellar and steal the show. Love the chorus. "I like her wild within reason..." I got one of those, too!

Wild within reason
Hi Vic apologies for not checking out your posts this year. O lamour was a great favourite of last year. Anyway onto this which is as quirky as I guess it should be given the subject matter.The lyrics and the way you both sing them are wonderful. Will have to go and check out what else I have overlooked of yours! Cheers Mark

Keep hitting stop to keep replaying the intro as it's sooooooo cool!
That sweet bass is right on the money.
Now I'm actually more than 20 seconds in I can say the rest of the song lives up to that opening magic.
Wicked tune man and I love both sets of vocals so much.
Thanks for this!

thanks Ted
Actually wrote this song around the bass line in my head, which is a rarity for me as I'm usually going with a chorus melody.
