about

This song was written for a theatre play which was created by my very talented actor/playwright friend Lisa Ryder and by myself.
Lisa produced the play with Nightwood Theatre at the Theatre Centre in Toronto and we performed it together on stage in 2019. Sound designer Richard Feren provided very cool synth accompaniment for the earlier version of this song on stage.

Afterwards I decided to be accompanied (and submerged in) frogs and birds. Thank you to my sister Linda for forcing me out to the swamp during the brief springtime frog-singing season.

lyrics

I feel so low, so low. I feel so low, so low. I feel so low, so low I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m...
Trouble hit me hard. Trouble hit me hard. Trouble hit me hard, so hard I’m gone, I’m... I’m gone, I’m... (gone I’m).
They say I done you wrong. They say I done you wrong. They say I done you wrong I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m...

Ba doo doo ba doo doo doo boo doo doo doo. Ba doo doo ba booba doo doo doo doo.
Ba boo doo ba booba da doo doo ooo. Ba ba doo ba booba da doo ah oooh.

It was early in the morning, (so lo) I didn’t see it coming. (so lo)
That downtown train (so lo) took my baby away.

I feel so low, so low. (so lo) I feel so low, so low. (so lo) I feel so low, so low I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m...

It doesn’t sound like anything you’ve heard before, yet there are hooks in almost every song. ... more
