Words and music by Amy Denio. Copyright 2014 Spoot Music, ASCAP.
A song resulting from ICS (Immersion Composition Society).
Mainly about the arrogance of the human race ~ yet we are writ in tiny lower case, considering the greater scope of things.


Shimmy shammy contra-blammy
Sammy had one in pyjamis
Got a little shiner when he haggled with a shriner
Shaker baker, oh go make her
Quaker undertaker
When he jumps, he is a Laker
oh lord, please don't forsake her!

Skipping ripping maybe take a sip
and let the swallow fill the hollow
Gorgeous glow to follow
Satan was sated, I waited for fate then
Fate don't show your face, peace can't keep the pace
Silly human race, but still holier than thou ~

Tiny lower case, silly little humans!

Why don't we darn our souls to make them whole again?
Why don't we just thread a needle, patch our souls and make amends?

Uh oh!
