Description
Enough with the politics... Time for another CRAZY love song. Hoo-RAAAAAAAY!

This over-the-top farce is about a guy who loves a very strange gal with a heart of gold.

Disclaimer: This actually isn't based on anyone in particular. More a loose composite of the odd quirks of ALL the females in my life both past and present (...with some added poetic license... Ha ha...).

THIS IS A THOROUGH REMIX!

Lyrics
STRANGEROUS

I
She's the strangest girl I've ever seen;
---likes makin' love on a trampoline.
She gets excited in the month of June.
She likes to howl at the moon!

She likes to dance in her lingerie;
---she greets the Sun at the break of day.
...Shares her love with the whole of creation.
She's always takin' in strays...

CHORUS:
She's my baby!
---likes to remind me every day.
It's like livin' in a pettin' zoo!
---So glad she came to stay.

Well she's my baby!
We fell in love on a rainy day.
Since that time my life has changed
in oh so many ways.

II
She wears a death-head ring on her thumb;
---tattoo of Kissinger on her bum!
Her many piercings cause a lot of talk.
Sounds like a junk-wagon when she walks!

When I get home from a hard workin' day,
my sweet Mama says “It's time to play.”
My baby's cookin' make a grown man cry;
but I eat it anyway. (Hmmm...)

CHORUS:
She's my baby!
---likes to remind me every day.
It's like livin' in a passion play!
---So glad she came to stay.

Well she's my baby!
We fell in love on a rainy day.
Since that time my life has changed
in oh so many ways.

Ohh...

1st REFRAIN:
She's strangerous.... Her life's a tale that breaks every mold.
She's strangerous... I love to sit and watch it all unfold!

Yeah!

III
She's gettin' stranger as the years go by.
She juggles hamsters for the exercise!
On her unicycle man she really flies!
Ask her no questions, she'll tell you no lies.

She likes to wear funny hats to bed;
---painted our window-sills cherry red.
I haven't figured out her mind yet.
I NEVER will! That's one safe bet!

CHORUS:
She's my baby!
---likes to remind me every day.
It's like livin' in a sit-com!
I'm so glad she came to stay.

Well she's my baby!
We fell in love on a rainy day.
Since that time my life has changed
in oh so many ways.

2nd REFRAIN:
She's strangerous... A mystery woman with a heart of gold.
She's strangerous... A love like hers will never ever get old!

No!

Come on!

She's strangerous!

She's strangerous!

She's strangerous!

She's strangerous!

Strangerous
Entertaining lyrics - she is indeed strange! Solid rock backing keeps the entertainment going. The fuzzy tone and smooth sustain works well on the guitar solo. I like it!

Ha ha...
I really needed a bit of lightness after the dark and heavy Freedom's Child. So, in effect, I was entertaining myself with those lyrics! :-)

Glad you enjoyed this happy little rocker man!

Be well friend!

a little strange is always good
cool full out rocker. this rolls along perfectly in a classic '70's rock way, included the cool nasty fuzz on the lead.

Hi Vic!
Yeah... a little strange keeps things interesting. As for the solo... a basic Tweed with some extra tube simulating Overdrive to fatten it up. Glad you liked it!

Be well bro!

An extended rock out here, Mike. Diverting lyrics and enough riffage to keep anyone happy. Heart and soul stuff. Thanks.

Thanks Peter!
I went for a head boppin' belly-laugh here. I write too much serious stuff I think...

So glad you enjoyed it!

Be well friend!

Thanks so much, folks
...for the kind words of support.

An apology is in order though... Even this remix is defective. I neglected to correct some volume issue in the opening vocals (too low compared to the third verse for example) and in the panned lead soloing (too much rise and dip). I have since corrected these on the Master, so if I ever release this track on CD and/or on Facebook it wil sound much more finished.

Again, many thanks for the kind comments. I deeply appreciate it!

Hamsters?
I was really happy to read that this was a composite :) I like the breaks between lines in the chorus. Cool late 70's - early 80's pop rock feel. Much rather hear about kissinger ass tattoos than politics.

Yup... Hamsters...
...ducks are just too damn unruly! (And don't get her started on GEESE!)

Hah! You targeted my favorite lyric: "tattoo of Kissinger on her bum."

I agree re the "late 70s-early 80s rock feel. Perhaps by the year 2030 I'll start doing things that sound like they're from the 1990s! :-)

Anyway, thanks for clocking in Craig. ALWAYS good to see/hear you around the site!

Be well friend!

Very cool tune
Reminds me a bit of early Rush.

Early Rush?
I'm pretty sure I don't merit the comparison. Too poppy for Rush of any era. But I do take that as a compliment.

Many thanks for listening!

Enough with politics!
We all need a break sometime and this serves its purpose very well.

I really liked the lyrics. I needed something to smile at.

Music isn't too shabby either. Plenty of going on there. Nice little stops and changes.

Has a Ina Gadda da Vida feel about it.

Cheers

Hi Dick!
Been writing too much serious stuff of late... death and politics... It was time for a good laugh!

As Marty Balin sang back in the Airplane's heyday: "Share a little joke with the world..."

Glad I was able to make you smile bro!

Be well!

Been buckled up for many years bro!

Take care!

Many thanks Tim!
I worked for 4 days putting together that midi drum track. Glad you like it! Also appreciate the thumbs up on the vox. I'd like to think I'm slowly improving...

I think
this is a good party tune. Got the upbeat "having a good time" feel.

It's good to
be less-than-serious now and again. As my last two songs dealt with DEATH and POLITICS it was definitely time to relax and have some fun! :-)

Be well bro!
