about

This song started in the UK, with @marvsmooth. He recorded the tenor ukulele on the first track of a 4-track recorder, and mailed the tape to @wobbie wobbit. Wobbie added a bass ukulele on track 2, and mailed the tape to @Vom Vorton, who recorded piano on track 3. The tape then made its way across the ocean to my hands in California.

I usually make instrumental songs, but I have a personal rule that if I receive a 4-track collaboration without vocals and I'm doing the last track, I'm doing vocals. So I wrote some lyrics and recorded this. I hope you all enjoy it, and thank you everyone for doing this amazing collaboration!

lyrics

The day I saw you first
I fell in love for sure
I wanted to jump right in
Even if it was a bit premature

But in the middle of the night
You call me twice
And then you go away
In the middle of...

The day you went away
I lost my bus and crashed my stocks
I had a job interview
And I was wearing mismatched socks

You told me to be friends
You said the words I'm scared to hear
You made me cry again
Oh why oh why these words I fear?

But in the middle of the night
You call me twice
And then you go away
In the middle of...

The day I saw you again
You were not alone
That's when I realized
The love I felt was gone

You told me to be fine
There was another bus at 3
The stocks would soon be up
Finally set me free

But in the middle of the night
You call me twice
And then you go away
In the middle of...

Piano solo... Vom Vorton!
On the bass...Wobbie Wobbit!
Ukulele... Maaaaarv smooth!

But in the middle of the night
You call me twice
And then you go away
In the middle of the day
