about

Recorded April 2013. The very first song composed and performed for Nino Blankenship, written back in April 2011. My best friend Dan Belcher mastered the track and provided the final mix.

lyrics

Everybody laugh at me, and I won't be the slightest bit perturbed
When you react, I'm happy, it's silence that leaves me there disturbed
Everybody laugh along to the story, I will come across as a fool
If you don't ask to keep on exploring, I find that pretty cruel.

Comedy through all the methods above
Is a gateway to staying glued
Even if you think I'm screwing it up
It's boredom that I find rude.

The audience invited to this here event shouldn't see the program as a script
Every single laugh from clumsiness then is success where we all win
Everybody laugh along to the evening, let me know what cracks you up
Maybe in fact it's all in the meaning of how I patched it up

Maybe this's show's not your cup of tea
But it's soda we're serving here.
Maybe my vocal's a travesty
And that's why you lend me an ear

Everybody laugh at me, and I won't be the slightest bit perturbed
When you react, I'm happy, it's silence that leaves me there disturbed
Everybody laugh astride to the curtains, don't you try and hold it back
Seems that you all got the best of this bargain, even if you don't want to clap
