The One That I Adore.


C(add9) Em6

I thought I hear a ding

               G               D6(11)   A7sus

but my heart didn’t race

C(add9) Em6

It’s just another guy

G               D6(11)   A7sus

Wearing a brown paper bag on his face

C(add9) Em6

Free as a bird,

G               D6(11)   A7sus

 the bird my cat just ate

C(add9) Em6

I would prefer

G               D6(11)   A7sus

if we could call sex a date

C(add9)

I can’t wait

            Em6

I can’t wait

            G   D6(11) A7sus

I can’t wait anymore

                 G            D(Add11)

I guess you’re the one

             G

That I adore.


We ordered a pizza

I waited a long, long time in his Ford

So, I put on some Tom Waits

And I thought of violins and the good lord

when he returned

he put his wrenching hand on my leg

So, I forgave his halitosis

And overlooked the fact his head was an egg


C(add9)

I can’t wait

            Em6

I can’t wait

            G   D6(11) A7sus

I can’t wait anymore

                 G            D(Add11)

I guess you’re the one

             G

That I adore.


D#                                      F

Don’t tell me you really care

A#                       G.    A.       Bm

I’m not blonde I just dye my hair

D#                                       F

You’re arms know more words than your mouth

A#             G.            A              

 And. your body is a paragraph of

     Bm

Your doubts

D#                                       F

You forgot to flush your toilet twice

A#                        G         A                        Bm

And the one in the guest room doesn't work at all

D#                                    F                  

so your good with cars, well I’m on the

A#             G        A.  Bm

side of the road in a skirt.


C(add9)

I can’t wait

            Em6

I can’t wait

            G   D6(11) A7sus

I can’t wait anymore

                 G            D(Add11)

I guess you’re the one

             G

That I adore.

I wouldn't be surprised to find this in a R&M episode. Especially during one of Rick's existential scenes. Sounds great!

PikeyPaigeStewart responds:

TY SO MUCH! I love that show. Would be a dream come true to score an episode.

Don't know why people are giving this a low rating. I guess it's just too fresh for them lmao. But this is amazing! I love this kind of weird! It's something new and interesting! This is the kind of musical exploration I would like to see more of. I hope to hear you expand on this sort of sonic space. Great lyrics too! Really a great tune overall! Five stars, a favorite, and a follow!

PikeyPaigeStewart responds:

My favorite Bowie record is Low. His label almost dropped him for putting it out because it was so off-the-wall and seemed to spit on regular pop sensibilities. That record is the reason that the New Wave genre started in the 80's. They also invented the iconic 80's gated snare sound that EVERY band of every genre in the 80's borrowed. It has similar overall ratings that this song has right now but is revered as his masterpiece. Not saying this is, but I try to make material that is out of my comfort zone as well as others pretenses of how music should go and I find that I make my best work like that. The worst thing an artist can do is cater to what they think their fanbase is expecting of them. (I'm paraphrasing a Bowie interview, but thats the gist of what he said about Low)
