"Madness in the house
Hold on to your mouse
Insanity prevails
Watch your magic tails"

I haven't been here in a while and I feel bad that I haven't been making many comments on you guys. I'll try to make it up. I hope you enjoy this crazy blues number.

Lyrics
MADNESS IN THE HOUSE
By┬ęBernardo Barreto

Madness in the house
Hold on to your mouse
Insanity prevails
Watch your magic tails.

Bla, bla, bla, bla
Chat, chat ,chat, chat
Say something nice
Say something clever.

If someone comes to hurt us
Let's talk about the weather
Or slap her with a feather
Let's try to keep it cool.

(solo)

Oh my poor, poor thing
You said you was my fan
Now you come here with your van
Of unprocessed madness.

You dump it on my friends
You throw it on my face
You said your doctor said
You're totally insane.

Well get some help my dear
Go home and get some rest
We're not your healing pills
But we're trying to do our best.

Hey Dantimmermans
I'm so glad you liked the lead. Believe or not, those are loops. Thanks for the comparison with Tom Waits, he's one of may favorites.

Welcome back!
ALWAYS dig your blues man.

This may be the most original concept for a blues number that I've ever heard. Pretty funny, yet characteristically dark at the same time.

Very cool lead riffing!

You really bring the madness here. Enjoyed!

Be well!

I wish
that I could modify loops as well as you! Such brutally honest lyrics and vocal style! I particularly like these lines:
If someone comes to hurt us
Let's talk about the weather
Or slap her with a feather

It's good to see you back in here.:-)
