Miss Terrie

{Verse one}
Miss Terrie -
Wild dancing in the dark
as I watch from the park
Do you know me?
Miss Terrie -
Talkin’ trash on the phone
In the night all alone
Do you hear me?

{Chorus one}
But there’s one thing I see
That’s no problem for me:
I love you.

{Verse two}
Miss Terrie -
Sittin out in the sun
Seems you’re always havin fun
Do you feel me?
Miss Terrie -
Singin scat on the street
With a kitten on a leash
Do you see me?

{Chorus two}
You’re all I hoped to find
But now I’m losing my mind
I love you!

What you need: I’ve got it here for you
What you want: is everything that I will do
What you say: it’s OK to let it turn out right
What you want: I’ll try to please you every nite

{Verse three}
Miss Terrie -
Window shoppin at the mall
Happy passin on it all
Do you like me?
Miss Terrie -
Thumbin books on the grass
Never seen so much class
Do you want me?

{Chorus three}
I’m just a whisper away
But I must hear your ‘OK’
(I love you.)

{Chorus four}
Like a bird on the wing
You make my heart sing
I love you!

{Chorus five}
I think about you all day
Scared I’ll hear you say:
I love you!
(No way!)

{Chorus six and fade}
Now I’m pleading with you
Will you love me…?

Artist's Description

These are the lyrics from a song I wrote a long time ago. I recorded using a meticulously programmed stereo drum machine, a solo voice, harmony voice, three faked voices using a Boss 150 multi-effects box, a CryBaby wah wah, at least 5 obsolete electronic synthesizers on Fostex 4-track cassette recorder. One might wonder how so much crap can be done by one person on a tape recorder that only has the ability to record 4 monophonic tracks. Consider the Beatles, who recorded their entire pronominal body of work using 4 tracks of tape! Needless to say, they did it right and recorded multiple tracks perfectly at the same time; I did it terribly and “bounced” tracks onto each other, making multi-layers into a single layer (track) and then adding more before bouncing that to a single track, and did it all once more for three tracks of unmixable music to be the ‘band and background singers’. Then I committed the atrocity of singing as loudly as possible into a $25 mic, pretending I was the lead singer. The results were shockingly bad but funny as hell. :-D

The one thing you can easily see from the lyrics is my profound loneliness, insecurity, and shyness goes back at least as far as the late 20th century.

What you may not notice immediately is that you know Terrie.

PS No, I’m not going to humiliate myself further by adding the recording to my YouTube collection. Suffice it to say, you don’t deserve that sort of brutality and YouTube doesn’t deserve the lost storage. LOL!

PPS If you can’t remember who Miss Terrie is, I might tell you in a Bmail if you ask very gingerly.

PPPS No, I wasn’t a virgin when I wrote this. How in the world could you THINK such a thing?!?
