about

My feelings about turning 33 years old. A fictional piece, of course, since I am married and can't handle my liquor.

These are just observations about my thirty-something friends who are lost in the haze.

I'm happy with how the lead guitar part turned out. It reminds me of The Beatles' "Octopus' Garden", with the electric guitar and the bass complementing each other. I also lifted some Brian Wilson falsetto vocal parts in the verses.

The strummiest song in the batch.

lyrics

THUNDERCAT

Good day
Hare Krishna
I'm here, my friend
Now, did you have a good night?
Did you get to sleep till noon?

We're not getting younger
It seems so long
Since we had a good talk
Since we had it good

I'm sincerely melancholic
I've been almost alcoholic
All my friends are happily married
And I sure do feel like a Thundercat

Good day
Happy New Year
I feel your pain
"Oh, do you have a girlfriend?"
"Do you have a great career?"

Haven't found myself
at thirty-X years old
I've never been so good at math
I've never been, so do the math

I'm sincerely melancholic
I've been almost alcoholic
All my friends are happily married
And I sure do feel like a Thundercat

Goodness!
Alopecia is here again
Do carry on the good fight
And tell it like it is, you fool

Haven't thought about the words my father said
He said: "Are you scared of children?
Are you scared to be uncool?"

I'm sincerely melancholic
I've been almost alcoholic
All my friends are happily married
And I sure do feel like a Thundercat
