Description
Bob let it slip that nobody has covered one of his tunes so i told him i'd be happy to do it. He said something about aging hayseed robot parts and then passed me a GB file with half of the tracks missing. This is a damn good song and I'm happy to have had the opportunity to frankenfry it. Plus, it's about not being able to deny your daughter, and i'm guilty of that on a daily basis.

Lyrics
And everyday
before sunrise
i feel her there
she sleeps lengthwise
not just a girl
with dark brown eyes
they're get away with murder eyes

la la la la

the things she does
before sunrise
mess up my hair
unties my ties
this tiny girl
not half my size
has get away with murder eyes

the questions asked
the hows and whys
no reasoning
can theorize
this tiny girl
not half my size
has get away with murder eyes

you knock me down
with your fly bys
i'm powerless
to criticize
how deviously
you terrorize
with get away with murder eyes

blip blip blip etc

wait...
I originally read that as "5 extra boobs". Too much of a good thing? Kind of "Total Recall".

Tempie's Best Song Ever!!
Who'da thunk that some aging hayseed secret agent in Virginia had enough robot parts to handle one of my tunes? LOL!!!! Awesomeness!!

I was so excited that you actually wanted to cover a tune and that in itself means the world to me, but how in the world did you blow away the original? I'll tell you how - Your vocals are the A number 1. La La La La La.... Ba ba bah ba ba bah... You have the smoothness of a Holiday Inn lounge singer at a Sunday All-You-Can-Eat Buffet, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart! You have this Michael Stipe thing happening every so often, and this song is one of them (Michael Stipe rocks the Days Inn....).

I love the Tito Jackson treatment of that funkified bass line and the horn parts are so you (Fact: Tempie was the original 'Kool' from Kool and the Gang)

I'm supposed to say "I like the original better" because that's what cool people say when some rising star covers an obscure song that no one's ever heard before, but man, I'm just not that cool and plus, I think this is Craig's best song ever! It's his All Along The Watch Tower!

LOL!!!

Thanks dude. You're the coolest.

Aspiring Artist
I forgot the Warhol study by your daughter is great. I showed Ruby and she instantly recognized the blend of fauvist and neo-post modernist influences.

Does Autumn have gallery representation yet?

the best thing
about Micheal Stipe at a buffet is that he wouldn't eat much.

Wow, this is totally great
For the song, the arrangement, the vocals--and as someone who also has daughters who sleep lengthwise before sunrise with get-away-with-murder eyes, I identify as well with the lyrics!

cool
agree that the five extra / tempie mix is an auspicous one.
great vocals, lyrics, fat synth tones.
can relate to lyrics having two daughters, although I kind of have the opposite problem, "no" becoming the default although they get what they want anyway LOL!

Cracking song from Bob, tempified!
Who cares about cool here at MJ? None of us will ever play the main stage at Glastonbury ..... probably
Top work Craig.

5EA/Tempie
You two should make babies more often. They're cute and poorly behaved. The best kind. The vocal treatment is my favorite. There's a sneaky intensity, but not in a creepy way. It makes sense to father's, which is the best compliment I can give you guys.

MJ Robo Radio
Imagine the joy of walking into your office building and in the distance you hear a familiar tune blasting down the hallway. SmokeyVW's killer MJ Robo Radio comes on every morning a few minutes before I arrive.

Today I heard my favorite Tempie toon! Will he ever top this one?

It's always good to revisit old songs, especially when the comments are as good as the tune. The next "purpose driven life"? LOL! This is quality material!
