Life is but a Dream

Description
A conversation about why the chestnut "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" has only one verse engendered the development of this song. It attempts to flesh out additional verses, yet tries to keep it as somewhat of a personal statement.

Lyrics
I like to row my little boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily as I go I sing
Life is but a dream

When I'm rambling in the country
Crossing the field and stream
I like to whistle as I walk
Life is but a dream

When I'm driving in my car
Zipping through the scenery
The miles go flying by
Life is but a dream

Someday in the future
When I'm no longer here
Maybe this music
Will tickle your ear

When I'm laying in your arms
Among the cool sheets serene
A smile is on my face
Life is but a dream

When I stare up at the stars
All that milk and cream
And I'm just a speck of dust
Life is but a dream

You neek!
I mean, you are unique, Warren. This has your signature
sound. What a riot. Who'd a thunk it? A fortified, extended
version of Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Only you, my friend.
Very happy and whimsical. Love that organic wah wah
sound. Love the way you masticate some of your vowels.
Does that happen when a Minnesotan moves to the East
coast?

Not musically interestng to me. More like a chant and the
metaphors are neither inspiring nor evocative. Voicing was
musically static. I appreciate the effort, and if the guy who
made this lived next door, I'd buy him a beer and all, but I
wouldn't use my harddrive space for this one. It may have
possibilities with other media, however.

I suppose I should be flattered you signed on to macjams under that imaginative moniker "new user" and singled me out for your solo non-constructive comment before quitting - but I'm not. Talk about wasting space. It was gracious of you to offer me a beer, but I'm going to pass on that, too.

Born in a Minnesota blizzard, I'm now residing in a coastal heat of Brooklyn, New York City. I recorded my first original composition as a teenager using a reel-to-reel tape recorder back in 1967, and I'm still finding it a creative challenge... [see more]
