mind over matter

Description
I am the wonder hand at work -- they wonder if I'm going to show up! I recorded my bosses saying the things they tell me every day -- go home, don't drag no ass, why you always slow play me dog, don't charge for today, just go sit in the truck, don't talk to me Eddie etc. lol -- sad but true! but funny. the work in the oilfields is hot, dirty and dangerous -- we need some comic relief. usually I am the one to provide it and this is a good example :-)

Lyrics
here I am I am the wonder hand
I'm out standing by the water can
they say you ready I say I'm always ready
I am fast eddie ready to go to the house

and I'm doing the best I can with what very little is left
it's mind over matter they don't mind I don't matter

they say don't drag no don't drag no don't drag no
then they say don't charge for today

they say you ready I say I'm always ready
I am fast eddie ready to go to the house

and I'm doing the best I can with what very little is left
it's mind over matter they don't mind I don't matter

mind over matter
This is fabulous (to use Karen's word). Funny! Entertaining! And so well constructed! The quality of the recording, mix, and production is very very good! You know......if your boss hears the quality of this track he's liable to expect more from you at the job! We'll have to keep this our little secret!

I like the reggae feel and the self-deprecating lyrics. The recorded voices are a great touch. Too funny!

extra virgin oil fields
This is goofy fun... loved the interspersed commands... definitely creates a strange image as I grapple between the danger of those over-ripe olives and your wild circus-like music... oh wait, you mean PETROLEUM? OK, never mind about the extra virgins then! :-) Great fast work on this RPM thing, hope the boys like it!
ttfn,
