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

Fizzy juice from the lollipop lynx

Crawling around in their Tootsie Roll hole
A cookie dough crow flew overhead
He landed and smiled and then he said

Reviews


very cute

I really love this song. keep up the nice work



Cute and funny

~~REVIEW~~
Haha this was very cute you have alot of variaty in this one, i had never heard of this untill i saw it on a flash so nice job on this the {VOCALS} are not perfect but i think they fit this well, not high voiced but just right i think, i do however think it could be abit sharper sounding at times, also love the little extra sounds like laughs and such in the backround, even the cat sound was cute, I downloaded this one since i liked it so much overall it was a good sound and track, anyways nice job

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
The quality could be sharper like when whistling, other then that its good stuff.

Awsome! My little 17 month old loves this song. She giggles and plays while listening for the monkey solo. I think she wants to try and whistle. :) Cant wait to see more! If you made a cd I would so buy it!
