“Moscow Mitch Monday” Theme

I created this for the weekly livecast protest show, “Moscow Mitch Monday” (name changed in 2021 to “Colonels of Truth”) for the Mitch McConnell Retirement Committee (name changed in 2021 to Progress Kentucky). I hoped that it would be a punchy and rousing anthem, setting the stage for a show that eventually would play a small part in helping send our Senator packing in November.

Siiiiigh…But at least the tune is still going strong like a thermos full of espresso…

“World in Your Hand” (Acoustic)

(Scroll down for lyrics…)
This is an acoustic version of my song coming out Spring 2018. Thanks to The Burlington Writers Workshop for the opportunity to debut it at the March 12 Open Mic night!

World in Your Hand

(Oooooh)
Right about now
Upwardly broken
Loping in the sunshine (Mmm-hmm)
And it’s been a long time (Oo-oo-ooh)
Since I hit that bullseye

(Woo-oo-woo-oo-ooh)
Light as a cloud
Every motion
Floating through forever (Mmm-hmm)
I kept my act together (Oo-oo-ooh)
Through all the heavy weather

      Take what you need, Honey
      Although they won’t understand
      Take it from me, Honey
      You’ve got the world in your hand

(Oooooh)
Crying out loud
Magical moonrise
Soothe my agitation (Mmm-hmm)
I’m sideways on vacation (Oo-oo-ooh)
Outrunning expectations

(Woo-oo-woo-oo-ooh)
Sly on the sound
System eternal
Yearning for some freedom (Mmm-hmm)
Broke out of that museum (Oo-oo-ooh)
And when I get to see him

      Take what you need, Honey
      Although they won’t understand
      Take it from me, Honey
      You’ve got the world in your hand

“Miro (Keep the Ball Rolling)”

** March 6, 2018 **: Update: Miro won! Thank you, Burlington!

(Scroll down for lyrics…)

Six years after my original song for Miro, I’m back with a new one promoting (now-incumbent) Miro Weinberger’s candidacy for Mayor of Burlington, Vermont (USA).

Miro (Keep the Ball Rolling)

2012 and we were on thin ice
Weighed down by debt and couldn’t pay the price
No future for our city’s Internet
But then the people made a smarter bet

      We’re on a roll (oh, oh)
      The energy’s showing
      We’re voting Miro (oh, oh)
      To keep the ball rolling

      We’re on a roll (oh, oh)
      We know where we’re going
      We’re voting Miro (oh, oh)
      To keep the ball rolling
      Keep the ball rolling

He got BT back on an even keel
Made things better for your bike and skateboard wheels
His middle name is “fiscal responsibility”
And works to grow our city’s diversity

      We’re on a roll (oh, oh)
      The energy’s showing
      We’re voting Miro (oh, oh)
      To keep the ball rolling

      We’re on a roll (oh, oh)
      We know where we’re going
      We’re voting Miro (oh, oh)
      To keep the ball rolling
      Keep the ball rolling

A plan to make our infrastructure sustainable
And make affordable housing more attainable
Early learning, public health, and Net Zero, too
And every week he’s having coffee with you

      We’re on a roll (oh, oh)
      The energy’s showing
      We’re voting Miro (oh, oh)
      To keep the ball rolling

      We’re on a roll (oh, oh)
      We know where we’re going
      We’re voting Miro (oh, oh)
      To keep the ball rolling
      Keep the ball rolling

Oh oh, oh oh, let’s go Miro…
