about

Satyr’s Day Parade. “I couldn’t sleep last night, your lips kept me awake.” I’m getting ready for the summer shows and this was the original line before I changed it. Lately I’ve been singing it. I’ll have to stop that. But hold on .. Saturn says have fun. Obviously I only had a couple of sentences before I changed it and developed a story line. Hold on, there’s a story line? Originally I was the one having the parade, now I just want to lead her parade. Be a willing participant. This is a new song. I look out into my backyard and I see spring. It makes me think of courtship. I don’t know. Spring fever. Can I please be in the running for your affections. The very best sort of excuse for a parade. And I have to say it really has been too long since I’ve attended. I moved into my new home last July and spent the summer and fall getting the place winterized. No time for fun. And since I don’t ice fish and can’t figure skate worth a damn I thought I might spend the winter making an album. Just for the fun of it. And I was bound and determined that there be a title track, like the “Lizard” album and unlike the “Beth” album. And I’m just tickled pink that it’s the last track. There’s a lot of preparation for the big day. If you're planning a parade you'll probably need a song to keep the clowns and camels in line. Saturn, my taskmaster says it's time for a party and a parade, if you will. My biggest fear? "The sailor's day parade". Can't be helped. We don't get to attend nearly enough goat bashes. So much fun with this song. The last one written for the album. 2018 promises to be a fab year. Every year should be. Life's what you make it, it's good, keep it coming. And don't forget to dance .. or march. Anyway, pick me .. jump and shout and dance about at your Satyr's Day parade (I made that up ..) Drive your float, be your holy goat. Enjoy your parade. One final note, the Sailor’s Day Parade is down the road apiece. Enunciation and good directions are alway in vogue … xoRJ

lyrics

I couldn't sleep last night .. your list kept me awake
More like a scorecard for your Satyr's Day parade
You asked for tattooed men .. I'm rounding up some clowns
Too bad my dog and pony show is out of town -
For your Satyr's Day parade - your Satyr's Day parade

Keep searching for your spring hare .. I can march today
There's really no one else who could lead your parade
Cotton for your candy smile .. search all over town
Gather up the boys and girls so they can stand around -
At your Satyr's Day parade .. your Satyr's Day parade
At your Satyr's Day parade .. your Satyr's Day parade

Look at me .. can't wait to be in your Satyr's Day parade
A golden coat .. the only goat in your Satyr's Day parade
Your Satyr's Day parade ..

Those silver stars I keep in a jar
Give them away .. today is my day

Let's watch the fire breathers .. maybe not so close
You click your heels when you feel it's time to go
Just keep an eye on me .. the hand I play will win
I knew I'd be here with the saints all marching in
Your Satyr's Day parade .. your Satyr's Day parade
At your Satyr's Day parade .. your Satyr's Day parade

Look at me .. can't wait to be in your Satyr's Day parade
A golden coat .. the only goat in your Satyr's Day parade
I wear the crown 'cause I got it down
At your Satyr's Day parade
I wear the key 'cause I'm meant to lead
At your Satyr's Day parade ..

Your Satyr's Day parade
Your Satyr's Day parade
Your Satyr's Day parade

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. And our upcoming seventh release "Piece Of Your Ghost" has been delayed. Expect it in mid to late February of 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release. Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
