Ode to a Ski Lift

Description
A song I promised I'd make to some friends I went skiing with in Colorado. So here it is! I left the vocals very unclean to add to the comedic effect, so please don't say..."YOU SUCK I HATE YOU YOUR VOCALS ARE A PIECE OF TRASH" thanks!

Lyrics
Ode to a Ski Lift

I know you are nothing but a chair,
Made from cheap metal, and perhaps some rubber too
But you can take me high,
As high as any lovers do

I could never make it to the top
Without you beneath my rump
I would've never had the chance
To take that monster jump

Ski Lift! This is my ode to you!
Know this! No matter what you do!
You'll always be a special gift to me!
If you break down, and no ones there.
If someone falls off a ski lift chair!
You'll always be a special gift to me!

Whether you have two seats (for me)
Or four seats (for me)
Or six seats for me and someone else

Whether you have foot rests or arm rests or safety bars!

Whether you are comfortable
Or you are rigid and cold

I will ride on you no matter how far!

Ski Lift! This is my ode to you!
Know this! No matter what you do!
You'll always be a special gift to me!
If you break down, and no ones there.
If someone falls off a ski lift chair!
You'll always be a special gift to me!

Some people take you for granted!
Some people don't give you respect!
Some people act like you're not even there!
As if you don't even exist!

Some people don't even like you!
Some people think you're too slow!
But some people don't even realize!
That you're faster than they could go!

Ski Lift! This is my ode to you!
Know this! No matter what you do!
You'll always be a special gift to me!
If you break down, and no ones there.
If someone falls off a ski lift chair!
You will always make me happy

oh my chair
i love the subject of the song, and the simple sad piano. the vocal style fits nicely, but could use a little work perhaps. but i just read the comic effect thing and i was thinking it made it rather comic as well. i like this. love the lyrics. i want to go snowboarding so sad havent gone in so long. 3 yrs to be exact.

this is a beautiful love song!! personally i hate ski-lifts - they scare the bejeepers out of me but then i feel the same way about the london eye, the eiffel tower and anything else that takes my feet away from terra firma!!! maybe you could write another one - just as pretty but.. dedicated to a pair of shoes!! thank you for sharing xox

har de har har!!!!
haha that is awesome! i'm the same way with heights, but for some reason
not with ski lifts, maybe thats why i love them so much...haha well i
appreciate the comment, i only hoped to express my love for ski lifts the best
that i could and i'm glad you could feel the emotion through the song! the
next ode apparently has to be dedicated to the monkee! but there is no
reason that there shall not be an Ode to Shoes!

Too funny
I worked as a ski lift operator in college. Needless to say it hits a little
close to home. ROFLMAO!

Not into skiing..but this song is good :-)
First time to hear you here at Macjams, and it's a good first impression so
far! Nice vocal work and you have a good sense of melody. Will be
checking the rest of your stuff.

I like ski lifts--
--in fact--I like them better than the ground. I went skiing only once--
but thats all it took for me to get off course and run into a bush. That is
why I think I like ski lifts better ---safer--happier--friendlier...

Anyway--very creative piece/lyrics. I'm sure ski-lifts are running more
smoothly all over the world--because now they have finally received the
respect and appreciation they deserve. On behalf of them....thank you.

So funny
that you listened to this one. I did have fun making this, haha but this is surely not my best vocal performance, but it is fitting for the song. Thanks for checking this one out Lena!
