Skeebopper

I had a lot of fun writing lyrics that made absolutely no sense. This is literally my first time using garage band, so it was nice to just start with mixing voices without anything fancy. I also appreciated the fact that this first submission was for something silly — as someone who is extremely corny, it was a very approachable format for me. Excited to do more of this with you all!

Lyrics:

Well it’s Saturday night and the party’s hot

Everybody’s waiting for the roaring to start

And when the landlord rolls up and starts to pout

When the pizza queen comes rolling in and steals your heart

 

The skeebopper – it’ll make you shout

It will roll you up and turn you in and spit you out

And when the landlord says that he’s cutting the trout

Well the skeeboppers hoppers will pop you out

 

The skeebopper – it skees your knees

It’s what they’re talking about across the seven seas

The skeeboppers hopping up the fleas you sneeze

Please please skeebopper won’t you squeeze my cheese

 

The skeebopper – waddily bop

The muckracker racker is gonna call up the cop

The popsi copsi popsicle and what have you got?

The skeebopper’s copper – and that says a lot

 

The skeebooper – shee boop shee wee

I’d like a stinking akin shake called a vanilla freeze

And if you’ve got the message loud and clear then do what you please

And dial 1-600-6603

 

Skeeeeeee — bop



Looking for feedback on

First time using garageband so any comments on mixing or effects would be helpful.

Welcome! I had no idea what I was in for when i clicked play on this. so tight, hilarious, cheerfully chirpy, and, odd. Laughed the whole time.

Where… did… this… jingle… come… from? How did you write it?

skeeeeeeeee

bop

wow incredible addition. lolled all the way through. super tight pitch, rhythm, phrasing. very well done. I’d *love* if you added the lyrics to the description 🙂

just added them. Depending on the depths of your soul, they may or may not mean something to you.

Welcome! This was ~very stinking fun~. Mixing and dynamics are good for me—might want to consider some (more?) room verb to blend things together more. How are you recording?

skstoxdale August 17, 2020 2:19pm

welll… the internal mic on my macbook. but I do have an h1n1 recorder that I might be able to use in the future (?!?) Working with minimal gear. But yes, thank you, I will explore this room verb you speak of. youtube here I come.

um, by h1n1 I mean h4n…. got viruses on the brain 😂

niiice. thanks! considering your computer is in the shop, weteggs.com was still highly satisfying.
