Same As It Ever Once


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
From the upcoming Cupcake Parade collection "Out The Door And Innuendo", this is a new version of an old song of mine from six years ago that used entirely MIDI instruments. This version makes use of new vocals, as well as the sounds of Betty, my 6-string Fender acoustic, Abbey, my Fender Stratocaster, Sheila, my Epiphone Casino, Martha, my Hofner violin bass, Oliver, my MIDI keyboard, and Steve, my tambourine.

The song is meant to sound as though XTC's Andy Partridge were introduced to Danny Partridge by Sir Paul McCartney.

Lyrics
Gavin is a loner
Patrols the market well
Observing as he pleases
Gavin watches hungrily
For any ne’er-do-well
Who might disturb the cheeses (“Got one!”)
That’s how it goes for years and years
For that’s all that he has

Phylis is a botherer
Disturbing Gavin’s plan
Whenever she goes shopping
Phylis takes delight in this
She doesn’t understand
And shows no sign of stopping
When Gavin sees her move the brie
He always seems to say

It’s the same as it ever once (and if it is why not?)
It’s the same as it ever once upon a time
I know that you’ll never going to be mine
It’s the same as it ever once

Phylis stirs up memories
Of love lost long ago
Which Gavin doesn’t care for
She flirts with him quite shamelessly
And Gavin doesn’t know
Just what to do, so therefore
He scurries off to lick the wounds
That are not really there

It’s the same as it ever once (and if it is why not?)
It’s the same as it ever once upon a time
I know that she’ll never going to be mine
It’s the same as it ever once

How can she torment him
With just a single touch?
I’m one who has to wonder
Why does he loves her ...so much?!?

[instrumental break]

Whenever Phylis smiles at him
Poor Gavin wants to hide

It’s the same as it ever once (and if it is why not?)
It’s the same as it ever once upon a time
I know that she’ll never going to be mine
It’s the same as it ever once

Now Gavin has been thinking
He has the perfect scheme
It’s one that he finds scary
He’ll convince dear Phylis
That it would be a dream
If they should ever marry
He fears she’d never go for him
But she’ll prove Gavin wrong

It’s the same as it ever once (and if it is why not?)
It’s the same as it ever once upon a time
And now she will always going to be mine
It’s the same as it ever once (and if it is why not?)
It’s the same as it ever once (and if it is why not?)
It’s the same as it ever once

All's well that ends well

And they lived happily ever after!

So .. you name all of your instruments. That must make it hard if you ever sell one off.

Lilting melody and bright backing make for a highly entertaining performance. I like it!
