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

Instruments:

-Steel string acoustic guitar
-Classical acoustic guitar
-Bass
-Whistling skills (funky monkey solo is me whistling with Melodyne love)
-Marimba/Bass Marimba VST
-Glockenspiel VST
-Pizzicato Strings VST

Epicness

I really loved this song. The lyrics were great and I loved the rhyming. This "Candy Zoo" sounds like a fun place. I loved the little sound effects throughout the song.

What really made the song for me was the "Funky Monkey Solo". I laughed so hard the first time I heard this.

Awesome job here.

It was Tasty!

I loved it, I was laughing the whole time. The whole song reminds me of The Big Rock Candy Mountain or a song off Sesame Street. (The Old school version of it, The Elmo's World Sucks!)

Best I've heard...

It's the most proffesional song I've ever heard on NG, and it's suitable for everyone, a definate feelgood song, and I want a cookie dough crow.

WHOOP!
