Song Description

Jazz/Celtic blend with guitar/drums/ bass and jazz guitar solo, as well as a vocal 'scat' solo. Irish Reel type chorus. Ends with chorus sung extremely fast.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by Erykah Badu, Ella Fitzgerald and Cape Breton celtic reels. Story inspired by female ancestors (Nova Scotia) who didn't want to play the traditional role of 'wife', but rather thirsted for adventure and independence.

Lyrics

Wanna Be

I?ve been told I?ll make a good wife someday,
Whatever for, if all he?s gonna do is sail away?
It?s not that I?d be lonely, and it?s not that I?d be bored,
It?s not that I?d be jealous of the women he?d adore.
It?s just a simple matter of envious desire,
I was born with a roving eye.

I wanna be one of the boys, I want to sail upon the sea,
I want a lover in every port and one to wait for me, yeah,
One to wait for me.
Gimme a jigger and I will toast to those upon the shore,
And I?ll endeavor to never be one o? them who wait for more,
Them who wait for more, hey, hey.

The widow?s walk is not for me,
I found a better way to move from ?A? to ?B?.
It?s not that I?m ignoring all the danger and the toil,
It?s not that I?m ungrateful, but my blood begins to boil!
It?s more along the lines of giving up the ghost
Of a life... somebody else devised.

I wanna be one o? the boys, I want to sail upon the sea,
I want a lover in every port, and one to wait for me, yeah,
One to wait for me.
Gimme a jigger and I will toast to those upon the shore,
And I?ll endeavor to never be one o? them who wait for more,
Them who wait for more, hey, hey.

It?s not that I?d be lonely, and it?s not that I?d be bored,
It?s not that I?d be jealous of the women he?d adore.
It?s just a simple matter of envious desire,
I want a bigger piece of the pie.
