Musical Monday — Looking Out My Back Door

Looking Out My Back Door
by Surfer Rob

Hey
It’s me again
Your little talking friend
From the planet in your head
I’d
Like to propose a toast
To the humble host
Of all the crazy shit
That’s been running through my yard

It’s been a while
since we’ve felt like this
a lot of lingering love
from a literary kiss
It’s got me thinking
and I’m thirsty for more
of singing “doo doo doo”
looking out my back door

Hey
is that a flying car?
maybe you’ve gone too far
or maybe it doesn’t matter
It’s
not a DeLorean
Maybe I’ll get me one
when I’m making fat checks
writing for TV
there’s killer robots there
they’re flying through the air
and mopping up rebel meatbags
And
they’re not the only ones
’cause blotting out the sun
is an all-consuming ooze
made from future processed foods!
I know it’s crazy but just give it time
while purple plant people plot
to plunder your mind,
until they’re Roundup Ready
and we’re runnin’ to shore
a-singin “doo doo doo”
looking out my back door

(cue the face melting guitar solo)

(outro riff with some tribal tom beats)

singing “doo doo doo”
looking out my back door
 


 
There you go. I wrote you a song, bringing back the nostalgia of 90’s alternative pop (if you hear it the way I do, something akin to Jimmy Eat World) with a little nod to Creedence.
 
Happy Monday!

  1. Hi Rob!

    Been a while– if it’s not obvious, I’ve been giving a lot more time to Twitter, than WordPress these days.

    Incidentally, food processing is a big part of my local economy! Mostly ConAgra/Lamb Weston with russet potatoes. Killer fries, tater tots, hash browns, mashed potatoes, and all that.

    1. Hey Jak — I’ve been away a bit too.

      Why wouldn’t it surprise me to find out that rural Washington turns out to be the epicenter of the largest unnatural life form on the planet? To . . . eat the planet? It would be an interesting exercise in parallelism.

      😉
