Description
I want this to be a Big Band kind of song, with lots of trumpets and trombones, sax and clarinet, and so on. It has a spectacular drum solo already (from drlaine), but it's still only in the beginning stages. If you want to play along, let me know!

Lyrics
In the Amazon basin
There's a nightmarish beast
A chicken-stealing spider
Looking for a clucking feast
Imagine a spider
As big as your head
And that's the kind of trouble
Nellie G. likes to spread

Nellie G.
Don't say her name aloud
Nellie G.
She is mythically endowed
She'll haunt your dreams, inhabit your screams
Nellie G., Golly me, watch out for Nellie G.

In the deep blue ocean
Swims a man-eating fish
Go swimming with sharks
If you have a death wish
Her teeth are razor sharp
Drinks blood by the quart
And that's the kind of trouble
Nellie G. likes to court

Refrain

In Indonesia
There's a dragon that is queen
Lizard called Komodo
10 feet of mean
Don't let her catch you
There's poison in her bite
In that's the kind of trouble
Nellie G. finds delight

Refrain

Dangerous grlz
Great fun... except the phrase "mythically endowed" is now lodged in my brain, and I have to go back and listen to this again, I got distracted for a moment there. :-) Yes, I can hear LOTS of big band around this, will be great!

You clinched
this one perfectly with that wonderful voice.... it's spot on for this kind of song, which reminds me of an old standard 'Hard Hearted Hannah' a song in a very similar vein. Love the drums, bass and instrumentation in this, along with the man chorus backing, wonderful stuff Joanna, regards M

mea culpa
It's too bad nothing more happened on this. The volunteers asked me for guidance and my lack of musical knowledge betrayed me. "Do whatever you want to" just wasn't a clear instruction. Shame.

Hi, I'm Joanna (not Jo, that's someone else). Garageband has allowed me to indulge my love for singing beyond concerts in the shower. My favorite part of songwriting is writing the lyrics. This makes sense, of course, because writing is what I d... [see more]
