The Tempo (string theory)


The tempo sets the mood
I'm feeling kind of smooth and horny
Fingers on the strings
Bluesy notes they sing, they're breezy

Moving up the scale
Modulate awhile, so soothing
Then back to E
Add the melody, where grooving

Add a word or two
A phrase of "I love you" and how you "please me"
Sing in a voice
Add the bridge and chorus, it's all so easy

String theory - Count the money rolling in

Moving up the scale
Modulate awhile, so soothing
Then back to E
Add the melody, where grooving

Now I stand back in admiration and look on in elation
At the harmonic waves breaking on the shore
The universal motion, with such simple notation
It's everything we are
From the deep blues of the ocean, to the free jazz of association
A classical sound that we implore
The sound of the country sensations, to city rap and it's connotations
To the folksy word play from the poet next door
Add the sweet soul of evolution, sourced from the primeval soup of all emotion
And we have a song that says it all
Universal adulation

String theory - Count the money rolling in

The tempo sets the mood
I'm feeling kind of smooth and horny
Fingers on the strings
Bluesy notes they sing, they're breezy

Moving up the scale
Modulate awhile, so soothing
Then back to E
Add the melody, where grooving

Add a word or two
A phrase of "I love you" and how you "please me"
Sing in a voice
Add the bridge and chorus, it's all so easy

Moving up the scale
Modulate awhile, so soothing
Then back to E
Add the melody, where grooving

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
