Description
A song that reminds me it was quite liberating to become self employed.At the same time it reminds me that wanting to control someone is being a dickhead.At least - in my candid opinion.Not that I'm perfect - I used to be a dickhead when I was younger.But now - hopefully I'm less of a dickhead.Anyway - I wanted to write something with a lot of cliche's that was simple and unoriginal but enjoyable.

Lyrics
Can't Fool Me

You can't fool me
Your never gonna rule me
Everybody loves you
But I can see right thru you

Everyday u see the same tired old faces
Walk down the same old street
You get paid to kiss the angels above
You who only wanna
Nail your hands to your feet
When you find out its just a game they play
They gonna and turn around and hear you say

You can't fool me
Your never gonna rule me
Everybody loves you
But I can see right thru you

Factory floor bulldog got his eyes on the girls
He's 30 years older or more
Shut your mouth no-ones got permission to speak
Unless you wanna see the back of the door
He doesnt know his wife is tired of livin a lie
While she's screwing his best friend she's got
These words on her mind:-

You can't fool me
Youre never gonna rule me
Everybody loves you
But I can see right thru you

Doesnt matter what you believe
If youre selling your soul
Here we come a knocking again
Are you ready to roll
You can change the world
You can make the sunshine today

But can anybody hear you?
Can anybody feel you?
Can anybody touch you?
I really wanna love you..

You can't fool me
Your never gonna rule me
Everybody loves you
But I can see right thru you

2008 RG Paddler

Blimey Rich, you always come up with something fantastic - and every song you do is new and different. I wouldn't call it simple or unoriginal ... it has a bit of a 60s pop vibe but takes itself on its own journey with great energy and drive. I love the vocals, your voice sounds fabulous. And the slightly "pissed" guitars. Great stuff.

Nope - wouldnt mind if it was though.Its from the film 'Kes' - a kitchen sink drama type film from the 70's about a lad in a northern mining town with no prospects who tames a wild kestrel.It has almost a cult status by now - mainly cos he just gives such a fantastically natural and believable performance as a young schoolboy rebel.I love it!!

dickhead
This is song simple, unoriginal and full of cliche's. The guitar lead is cliche. The lyrics are cliche. The progression is cliche. And it sounds like it was written by an ex-dickhead.

And I LOVE IT!



You knew I would....

Very cool
I like this a lot - far from unoriginal, if you ask me. I like the distorted guitar sounds, and the panning/ double-tracking effect is very effective. Good vocal, and love the harmonies on the chorus. Rock and roll, dude! Nice one. Peace.

thanks dajama - i always um and ah about just how far to pan things out sometimes just a bit inward from the far extremes is where i usually end up settling on - still cant get over how people like frank zappa and the beatles got away with panning drum tracks far left on smoe tracks - well i guess in the old days they didnt always have the choice in analogue land..
Very encouraging - thanks - Richard

Great little rocker
At first I thought it was overloaded, but finally realised it's those "pissed guitars". Good one - do you feel better now that it's done ;) Did someone steal the bass track, or is it just me?

Great set of words.

Cheers from Oz
