Description
My first attempt at hip hop.I played bass and guitar and rapped (it feels odd even typing that), GarageBand did the rest. It was meant as a joke but I had a great time and enjoyed the process much more than I thought I would. I became a grandfather for the first time two weeks ago. I really tried to get it finished for father's day so I could put it up here but father's day was filled with time well spent with my daughters and my mom and the new one. This song is dedicated to my granddaughter Eva.

Lyrics
So I'm grandmaster daddy and I'll try to make it fit
I know I'm getting old but not about to quit
Got rogaine under lid and viagra in the pocket
I can go all night like a multi stage rocket

When I babysit I'll feed her candy all day
Let her stay up late and have her own way
Then it's story time about nuclear bombs
She'll be spittin' pea soup when I send her home to moms

You can call me grumpy you can call me pappy
You can call me what you want I won't change no nappy
Got a dog that barks and he just won't quit
Sees imaginary squirrels and eats his own s

The days spread on like luke warm butter
If I get too bored I pull out my putter
This growing old is not so hard
Hey you kids get out of my yard

I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop
I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop

This progeny that came from me
Has altered my psychology
Got my shorts down low and my pants up high
My shirts tucked in but I don't know why

I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop
I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop

So I'm grandmaster daddy and I'll try to make it fit
I know I'm getting old but not about to quit
Got rogaine under lid and viagra in the pocket
I can go all night like a multi stage rocket

I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop
I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop

You can call me grumpy you can call me pappy
You can call me what you want I won't change no nappy
Got a dog that barks and he just won't quit
Sees imaginary squirrels and eats his own s

I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop
I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, I'm a hip pop on the flip flop

The days spread on like luke warm butter
If I get too bored I pull out my putter
This growing old is not so hard

I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, this growing old is not so hard
I'm a hip pop on the flip flop, this growing old is not so hard

get the feeling
if you decided to try your hat at gregorian marching metal it would shine. Nice smooth jazz feel, fun lyrics and the love for your craft shows clearly.

So nice
of you to give it a listen, thank you. I was just over on your page and it blew me away, too stunned to have written a comment. We share a love for NuJazz and I hear a lot of my influences in your music. As a bass player I can appreciate your cool bass lines and smooth sounds. I will be back on your page tomorrow for more.

Great playing!
I really like how smooth the bass and guitar sound together. I can't stop smiling. Fun lyrics but really stellar performance and production. On the genre, I think this could go under Contemp. Jazz or R@B just as well.

Really fun listen. I enjoyed it.

Thanks for sharin'.

Thanks Chris
Contemp. Jazz or R@B would probably make more sense as I have zero experience in hip hop rap. My leaning is always toward Jazz, NuJazz, Funk, R&B. Used to play pop rock professionally but the thought of it gives me the willies now.

Amazing
how a new baby can inspire things never felt before. Conflicted about being an old grumpy geezer and looking forward to every second of it.

grandpa'
Being a grandpa myself I understand your pride and joy over your grandchild:)

Very impressed of your rap technique and cool hip hop style. Your bass and guitar work give away that this isn't the first time you play those instruments;) Very impressive. You show such great feel, and have a real cool groovy touch in your playing.

As you can tell... I really enjoy what you've done here... so you have a new fan:)
