Ya4W34 - I Meant No Disrespect (bass added)

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.

Ya4W34 - I Meant No Disrespect (bass added)

No changes in this version, except that I've added bass guitar. The bass is a Kala Ubass that I've had for 4 or 5 months, but haven't played enough. This is my first original song posting with bass. It was kind of fun figuring out a suitable bass part.

I meant no disrespect
When I said your life was charmed.
I never thought to question
Who you'd ever harmed.
I meant no disrespect.

I meant no disrespect
When I rained on your parade.
It didn't have enough
Rainbow shades.
I meant no disrespect.

I meant no disrespect
When I called you a girl.
It's a black and white, day and night
Binary world.
I meant no disrespect.

I meant no disrespect
When I heckled your candidate.
I saw an opportunity
For individual debate.
I meant no disrespect.

I meant no disrespect
With my hand waved in your face.
Someone has to speak
For the human race.
I meant no disrespect.

Hi Renee,

Very interesting and well written lyrics. Simplicity with deep meaning. Particularly liked the verse with binary world. And your theme of I meant no disrespect works very well pulling all your verses together.
Well done!

Neil

Thanks. The muse hasn't been cooperating lately, but now I have a few songs in the works. Some for SSG that I never completed. The tune for this one came quickly. The lyrics were rewritten several times.
