    I have been up all night watching videos of The Flight of the Conchords, and was inspired by this girl I met last week who had just texted me. I decided to dedicate this song to her and I hope you guys get a kick or two out of it.

    Home - Umgala/Matt Chandler
    (A song about a girl I know)

    [intro]
    Am - Am - C - G

    [verse]
    Am
    when i stepped up
    C
    to the plate with you
    G
    i didnt know
    D
    what i should do

    first base came
    so quickly
    made second base
    look so easy

    (Chords progress the same throughout song)

    [chorus]
    tonight i'm
    gonna try to make it home with you
    do what i gotta do
    to get in you

    and afterwards
    we'll have a smoke break
    sit out by the lake
    and commemorate

    [interlude]
    Am - C - D - F x2

    [verse]
    on to third base
    i contemplate
    i think its ok
    to violate

    do not hesitate
    allow me to alleviate
    some of your stress away
    before we end this date

    [chorus]
    tonight i
    made it home with you
    did what i had to do
    to get in you

    and afterwards
    we had a smoke break
    sat out by the lake
    proceeded to commemorate

    [outro]



    I actually could make a mini series of songs about this chick if I get positive reviews. Let me know what you think, and feel free to ask questions.

    I don't get it.

    It's probably funnier IRL.

    Yeah, but I generally haven't gotten giggly about just sex for quite a few years now. Flight of the concords are amusing because it's sexual humor but this almost sounds like he's trying to be serious. I can't figure out a joke if there is one, anyway.
     
  5. I imagine that the chord progression has to be done with metal/distortion as you pretty much talk about f**king your girlfriend in it. Could probably have a mini guitar solo in the interlude.

    Lev, really man? oh well. It sounds serious when playing/singing it. My cousin and I thought it was funny when I started free styling it a little so I finished it off.

    To clarify, not a girlfriend. just some girl.

  7. Honestly a serious song with a refrain like this...
    cant exist when you understand what that is saying. Also considering the chord progression used (which kinda looks like a rock ballad progression, though I dont really know too much depth about progressions), you're either doing a parody or you dont know what you wanted to put behind this. If you're talkin about fu**in some random girl and then sitting on a lake to commemorate it, you need to put it on a fast beat (120+) with at least 2 bars per chord. This leaves it open for some epic shredding in the interlude before the second verse.

    Do you have sheet music to go with this? I can't lay my finger on a melody that would go with the song.

    ha, you guys are trying way too hard. It's simple, easy going and just meant to make you giggle. I guarantee Cox wasn't trying to read that far in to it. I guess you could call it a parody.
