Ok... so the link is found in the usual place www.soundclick.com/jeremysutter

No guitar or instrumentation yet, didn't want to interupt my train of thought as I put it together... to me it could be sort of a 1940's style song from a musical. Big chorus of women singing in tight harmony.

Train of Thought

Chicka chicka chicka chicka Chicka chicka chicka chicka
Chicka chicka chicka chicka ….

Now here comes a train of thought, it's chuggin' right along
It's gonna keep on steaming till it turns into a song
The steam whistle is screaming, you'd better clear the track
Because if you derail this train I'll forget where I'm at

Oh it's a traaaaiiin… of thought
Yes it's a traaaaiiin… of thought

The tenders are all loaded, got water for the steam
You may not hear it coming but it's vivid as a dream
Gonna catch you by surprise, when the train rolls in on time
And at the end of every line you'll find another rhyme

Oh it's a traaaaiiin… of thought
Yes it's a traaaaiiin… of thought

Oh this train of thought is focused
Just one thing that I see
I'm gonna sing a rousing song
About a chickadee

it's on my traaaaiiin… of thought
it's on my traaaaiiin… of thought

Now Ken don't be a cynic, don't bully James with your clout
Don't listen to producers when they say songbirds are out
The term it may be sappy, and carries a comic bounce
But copyright infringement? “My Little Chickadee” don't count

it's on my traaaaiiin… of thought
it's on my traaaaiiin… of thought

Chicka chicka chicka chicka Chicka chicka chicka chicka
Chicka chicka chicka chicka …. dee dee!

You can't touch me!!!! I'm like a shadow!!
Ken,

Looks like you put those Jeremy points to good use to solicit some legal help to publish that document.

We'll just have to double the watch to see what if any anarchist or worse passive aggressive type might try to slip in a "chick-a-dee" on that train [of thought] on the next assignment and future assignments to come.

To All SSG participants:

Can everyone
Help ensure
In no uncertain terms
Compliance to
Ken's-
Anonymous-
Document
Established for our
Edification?

Thanks to all for the consideration!

I think that should do it, Ken.
Thanks,
James

As soon as I read the chica, chica, chica . . .
I had this terrible feeling that I knew where this train was heading . . .

And sure enough I'm on the train to hell . . .

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Jeremy,

Well, well, well, I really needed to read that :mrgreen:

Here I am struggling to come up with something this week, but I said, "No. Don't be selfish and make others wait for feedback"....I am so glad I stopped by :mrgreen:

... guess I will head over to KG2's post but right now I am imagining there won't be any lyrics....just a bloody headless chick-a-dee like a scene something out of an Alan Green song....I'll find out now!

Thanks for sharing!

James

My, my....I haven't been around much to comment on songs lately, but you guys are having so much fun without me I think I'll just post the assignments, light the blue touchpaper and step back.....

Fun song, Jeremy, works well for me.....but I'm thinking country, with maybe a WC Fields soundalike voiceover? Never mind - I'll leave you to it.....

:D :D :D

This is wonderful. Thanks for making me smile.

Acapella works wonderfully, too. Multi-track some harmonies and I think you've got a winner. Love the ending!

Peace
