MAC9 - March (Who's Your Daddy?) submission

**UPDATED for better clarity of the vocals overall and particularly in the final verse**

This has taken me ages, mostly due to my unfamiliarity with writing lyrics and recording vocals (also I havent heard any children's songs since I was about 7 so I had to do some research!). My wrote the lyrics by thinking about the things that children enjoy and trying to combine multiple subjects (candy and going to the zoo c'monnnn); the hard part was trying to think of animals that could either by rhymed with a candy or that could be alliterated with one.

I originally tried to do the vocals myself but found my voice to be too boomy, luckily my good friend Frederico Allevato di Puttanesca a la Braziliana visited from Norway so I had him do the singing instead.

----------

We got purple peppermint porcupines,
covered in sticky porcupine spines.
Magical cocoa unicorns,
with great big chocolate unicorn horns

----------

Welcome to the Candy Zoo
Lets have an adventure, just me and you
Well get a map and go wherever you want to

----------

Theres the wizard lizard who spends his time
Conjuring candied lemon and lime
Liquorice fish live in this lake
all they do is bake birthday cake

----------

Welcome to the Candy Zoo
Lets have an adventure, just me and you
Well get a map and go wherever you want to

----------

If you're thirsty we can get some drinks
Fizzy juice from the lollipop lynx
Next stop the giant jellybean giraffe
Have you seen one? I promise youll laugh

----------

Welcome to the Candy Zoo
Lets have an adventure, just me and you
Well get a map and go wherever you want to

----------

FUNKY MONKEY SOLO!

----------

Look, its the underground mole patrol
Crawling around in their Tootsie Roll hole
A cookie dough crow flew overhead
He landed and smiled and then he said

----------

You're always welcome at the Candy Zoo
What a great adventure, just me and you
Come back soon and play whenever you want to

-Steel string acoustic guitar
-Classical acoustic guitar

Again

Max on both (10/10 and 5/5).

It's good cause you combine candy and animals (kids love animals and, ofcourse, sweet stuff a.k.a. candy) rather than the zoo. The blend with 'going somewhere' might give that extra pinch ('Dora the Explorer' anyone?).
Just a note on the side. This has quite some potential. Honestly. Maybe make a video/flash with it?

Keep up the good work ^^.


curriemaster responds:
