Please note that this was captured with my 'Droid phone.† So, the highs sound louder and the lows are clipped.† It is just what cell phone mics do.

Since I have all of my parts recorded on all the other songs, today I am taking the time to pay bills and work on Fundy's lyrics of "Legs".† With me having done several songs reminiscent of the early ZZ Top years, I want to try to give this one more of a late 80s'/early 90s vibe from this famous power trio.† While it will share a title with another famous ZZ Top song, this will be an original song both lyrically and musically.† This will also add to the diversity of the album so that you aren't just listening to another 3 chord blues album.

Fundy wrote 4 verses and I never do over three.† So, I am shrinking down what was written and trying to word things a bit more like I would.† I know the music I have in mind and I am trying to make things fit there, too.† I also am trying to make the song focus a bit more on the addiction itself before issuing a warning.† I want people who have had addictions or are currently struggling to feel the power of that draw before I warn them.† If they don't feel it, then you will just be preaching.†

When the rewrite is complete, I will do what I have done in the past:† send my lyrics to Fundy and see what revisions he would suggest.† We did this on the song "Hostile To The Gospel" and I feel that we were able to make this piece truly ours while holding on to what each of us created separately.† I think we will be there with "Legs" as well.

Now to illustrate what Fundy and I do when we write together......in separate parts of the world.

His original words for "Legs":
Quote :
LEGS†††

My parents taught, ďDonít do it!†

As it rips apart you soul!
Youíll think itís not a problem,
but it soon will take control.Ē
They said lights in the city,
Can be sometimes tinged with red,
And itís a place of torment
which would mess about my head.

But I saw legs.
Long, long legs.
I saw Legs.
Long, long legs.

My parents they once told me,†
ďYouíll regret it, if you do!Ē
But their belief, donít give relief!†
Not like those girls I knew!
My mindís now unrestricted,
oh, it's been so for a while.
But no, Iím not addicted,
And I am NOT in denial.

But those legs,
Long, long legs.
Ohhhh! Legs,
Long, long legs.

And now Iím hooked on hookers!†
And on many I have dined!
Itís not complex, I live for sex!
It permeates my mind!
Now that is all I think of,
oh, and that is all I crave.
Could their insight, have been quite right,
my soul it does enslave?

Oh, those legs,
Long, long legs.
Hmm, Legs,
Long, long legs.

I think I need escaping,
But, yes this thing is my vice,
It may be wrong, but much too strong,
it always does entice.
Destroying lives of many,
who do think it all for fun.
But now itís clear, get out of here!†
Just use your legs and run!

Legs!
Long, long legs!
Legs,
Long, long legs.


Written by Peter Billet (aka Fundy)

Then, I had Fundy tweak the story to specifically deal with internet porn addiction.† This is what he did.

Quote :
LEGS†††

My parents taught, ďDonít do it!†

As it rips apart you soul!
Youíll think itís not a problem,
but it soon will take control.
The internet has pages
where the paths that you are led
end in a place of torment
which would mess about your head."

But I see legs.
Long, long legs.
I see Legs.
Long, long legs.

My parents they once told me,†
ďYouíll lament it, if you do!Ē
But their belief, donít give relief!†
Not like those girls I knew!
My mindís now unrestricted,
oh, it's been so for a while.
But no, Iím not addicted,
And I am NOT in denial.

But those legs,
Long, long legs.
Ohhhh! Legs,
Long, long legs.

Iím hooked on online hookers!†
And on many I have dined!
Itís not complex, I live for sex!
It permeates my mind!
Now that is all I think of,
oh, and that is all I crave.
Could their insight, have been quite right,
my soul it does enslave?

Oh, those legs,
Long, long legs.
Hmm, Legs,
Long, long legs.

I think I need escaping,
But, yes this thing is my vice,
It may be wrong, but much too strong,
it always does entice.
Destroying lives of many,
who do think they'll not regret.
But now itís clear, click out of here!†
Get off the internet!

Legs!
Long, long legs!
Legs,
Long, long legs.


Written by Peter Billet (aka Fundy)


Then comes the hard part of writing with someone.† Will they like it?† Will my work even look like my work when it's finished?† Will I like what we create?

I take whatever we're working on and start writing music.† With our previous song "Thank You", Fundy's words just happened to fit a piece I had written but couldn't think of anything to say.† He had this awesome poem that was a worship track about not having anything to say and it fit almost perfectly.

However, the original piece with "Legs" had four verses.† I had to trim it or have a really long song.† I also had to reword some things to make it flow as though I was saying it.† I then make my changes, run them by Fundy, and we come to our final revision.† It really only took minutes once I really got going with my first rewrite.

Here is the final draft:

Quote :
LEGS

Words by Peter Billet/Chris Dickens
Music by Chris Dickens


V1: My daddy said, ďDon't do it!
You'll regret it if you do!Ē
But his beliefs don't bring relief
Not like those girls I knew!
I'm hooked on digital beauties
On many I have dined
No matter what I'm doing,
They're always on my mind!

Chorus:
Legs!
Long, long legs!
I see legs
Long, long legs!

V2. Now I undress every lady
In my private dirty thoughts
A flash of skin will do me in
My mind connects the dots!
Sex is all I think of
It's all that this man craves
Whoever knew a click or two
could bind me like a slave?
(Chorus)

V3: I thought was escaping,
But this thing is my vice
I was wrong; it's much to strong
It always does entice
Destroying lives of many
Always ending in regret
Now it's clear; click outta here
Get off the internet!!!
(Chorus)

Xid, I'd work with you on some Joshua's Creed material, too.† I know you can come up with riffs.† If you ever want to try something, let me and Fundy know.† We can do a three way writing process.† We both work cheap, too.† For credit on the album and a free copy each, you can get this crack team working with you.† We've sold literally dozens of copies of our songs.

You two are hilarious. †If I don't see my name in the credits of the new album (for getting you two back together on creating new songs), I'm going to disown you both....then I will ban you from this forum, and quit....and never talk to anyone ever again. †And probably pout for a week or so.

If I ever make my own album, I'm going to call it

Staybrite And The Pursuit Of Excellence


TRACK ONE
STAYBRITE STYLE

I used to feel so lonely.
I used to feel so sad,
but then I met this funny bloke,
and he has made me glad.
In times of trepidation,
when things are going wrong,
I pause for just a moment,
and I sing this little song.

We're alright,
Here's staybrite.
He'll always make us smile.
a splendid bloke
who likes a joke.
We really love his style.


This is obviously only part of the first song on the album, and being that it has the word 'bloke' in it means that you have to sing it in a cockney accent.† Other tracks include..

1 - Staybrite Style
2 - He's The Man
3 - Credit In The Credits
4 - Let's Eat Yesterdays Left Overs For Lunch
5 - We'll Send You An Autograph If You Send Us The Money
6 - Sales Will Rocket Up To Three

Bonus Track
11 - Fundy And Family Screech Something Awful

I believed you until I noticed that you left out "binge-eat ice cream for a month".† Had you added that, I would have known you were serious!

News just in.† I've managed to work with Will.I.Am, Beyonce and Elvis Presley (or that's what he told me his name was...)

Here's the premier of track 5....
Iíll send you my autograph, when you send me some money.




You sent me a note and it did make me laugh
you asked if Iíd send you my own autograph
To do it for free well thatís really not funny.
Iíll send one to you if you send me some money

Iíll send you my autograph,
when you send me some money.
Nothing at allís ever free.
Iíll send you my autograph,
when you send me some money.
Theyíre only six dollars from me.

Theyíre eight out on ebay, or so Iíve been told.
So get them from me and before theyíre all sold.
My website has things for whatever your pocket,
The more that you buy, makes my sales rocket.

Chorus

Weíve CDís, and photos turned in to place mats,
Weíve t-shirts, and mugs and embroidered hats.
And then if you have any cash that is spare,
I even can send you a lock of my hair.

Chorus

Meh, 192, 144.....after 114 I completely lost count.
Did you try to call Billy Gibbons? †You might be able to get him cheap, last I heard he was doing kids birthday parties at the Chuck E Cheese in La Grange TX.

While the kids parties part is a bit far fetched, he really has been playing some street gigs in Finland.† What is funny is that people were walking by and not realizing who he was!
