Story Behind the Song

This is a psychedelic rock tune from my first album, "Waving Prairie". It is what I call a surrealist rock song of love gone bad when love is all about giving and never getting anything back.

Broadjam Member Reviews

The strong point in this song is uniqueness and originality. There are some clever rhymes (thanks/tanks; brains/reins) and a story line that is a bit bizarre. Notable are the driving beat on the keys which adds an element of expectancy to the track. Someone worked very hard on the instrumentation on this song. The intro and the ending are excellent. The piano kind of "goes mad" at the end. It found me wishing there was a video of the person playing...I bet they have a lot of fun attacking their instrument. The hums are great and the flute is a fun addition to this song.

    - Kate Carpenter

I like the driving beat of the piano, especially in the introduction. I also like the cool little guitar riffs throughout the song.

I bought my girl a brand new car
But she said thanks, but no thanks
She didn't want a Cadillac
She wanted 20 German tanks
To this I didn't know what I should say
So, I got her 20 horses and a silver sleigh

She climbed in side and bravely gathered up the reins
She drove those horses till they had all lost their brains
To this I didn't know what I should do
So I bought her a blonde eagle
With a vest of blue

She rode that eagle everyday
Till the feather left it's wings
He lost his hair his vest of blue
And now he never sings
To this I didn't know what I should say
So, I got her 40 horses and a golden sleigh'
She left me yesterday
I gave you everything
I gave you everything
I gave you everything
