Y13W12 From Owego to Oswego

The Sunday Songwriters club is a stretching exercise for your mind. Arpeggios for the brain cells, so to speak. After all, writing is like playing - to get better, you have to practice.

Y13W12 From Owego to Oswego

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13026839

I’m going from Owego to Oswego
Someone forgot an “s” on the mailing address
I’m going from Owego to Oswego
In a brown suit and truck for the UPS

I pull into the diner where I eat on Saturdays
The waitress looks at me and I say mayonnaise
She looks a bit confused till I finish what I want to say
I say mayonnaise a lot of people here in the diner today

I’m going from Owego to Oswego
Someone forgot an “s” on the mailing address
I’m going from Owego to Oswego
In a brown suit and truck for the UPS

I put the package on the nurses’ desk she signs for the order
Asks me why I look concerned I say aorta
She’s rolling out a wheelchair till I finish what I want to say
I say aorta cut that front lawn; it needs trimming today

solo (added)

I’m going from Oswego to Owego
Someone put an “s” in the mailing address
I’m going from Oswego to Owego
In a brown suit and truck for the UPS

I recognize the yellow house as I wait on the porch
I recognize the woman I’ve seen seven times before
I ask about the extra “s” on the packing slip
She says her dear loving grandma writes with a lisp

I’m going from Oswego to Owego
Grandma put another “s” in the mailing address
I’m going from Oswego to Owego
In a brown suit and truck for the UPS

Hi James

This is a lot of fun - moves along very nicely. Can't help thinking it could use a little break of some sort. Not necessarily a bridge with lyrics, just a short musical interlude would do. Got to say, though, that in my head I'm hearing a kazoo lead and that's never a good thing!

Looking forward to more.

Peace
