A veeeery, super, embarrassingly raw draft of this idea I had for a song RE: Your Mom.


Isn't it a cliche that sailors have these "mom" tattoos? Like, strong, smelly, manly, macho sailors get tattoos to remind them of their moms? I think that could be a pretty cool, fun way to sort of demonstrate the unique love kids might carry for their mothers, no matter where they go or what they might do. Also could be a fun way to explore the angle of flying out of the nest and leaving the comfort of your home, your mom, and how sometimes the longing and homesickness might get the best of us, even when we think we're already all grown up and over that stuff.


Aaanyway, I wrote this silly sailor song from the point of view of a sailor who misses his mom, and just wanted to throw it out here, just in case some lovely male sailor somewhere might want to lend his voice and sing this tune. Please don't mind my horrible vocals here, I'm a bit sick and had to do it with just one take, so yeah it's just for reference. As is the harmonica, that should be played again, too! I'll upload the only-ukulele version asap in any case! :)


Enjoy anyway <3


 


I’ve got a tattoo on my arm


It’s a heart and a ”mom”


You might think it’s for fun


’cause, a man made of steal,


How could he ever feel


A longing for anyone?


 


Yes I’m a sailor indeed


I was born for the seas


I was born to be free


If you mess with this mate


You’ll be used as a bait


There’s no doubt just take one look at me   


 


Yes, I lost an eye


And two fingers from one hand


and no one saw me cry


Yes I’m though, I’m the bravest


I have fights before breakfast


But that is not all that I am


 


See sometimes nights get cold


And stars shine so far


And I think about home,


And oh how I miss my mommy


I know it might seem funny


But just think about what moms are


 


They’re like cookies


In the oven


Like blueberry pie on my cheek


Oh I do weep


For my mommy


My mommy mommy mommyy


 


 


I’ve got a tattoo on my arm


A heart for my mumm


You might think it’s for fun


But alone, in the sea


A boy suddenly sees


What it means to miss your mom

One of the best and most intriguing things about hitRECord is that every time you even log in to the site, not to mention upload anything there, you can never be sure what might follow. I never planned to find sojushots' amazing illustration (with it's charming French title) or end up being inspired enough to create anything, but somehow, about 30 minutes...

A long time ago, in a story so old

There was a beauty and and a beast, or so I’ve been toldThey were these two strangers, two lonely soulsBut it’s not what you think, no, here’s how it goes:Lets start with the Beast, he was ugly and scaryPathetic and poor, and horribly hairyThe outside was rough, but once he smiledYou could see that he had a heart of gold insideThe Beast loved a Beauty, this pretty little thingShe was the fairest of them all, and she could dance and singBut unlike the beast whose love shined the bestShe loved herself,...
