Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Expel avarice, the mother of all wickedness, who, always thirsty for more, opens wide her jaws for gold.
- Claudianus, Latin Classic Poet (365?-408? A.D.)

When it comes to singing, on just about every song I record, I always seem to be surprised at how my vocals come out – either surprised that it ended up sounding as good as it did, or surprised that I could possibly butcher any song so badly.

For instance, I feel like I nailed it pretty good on the vocals for Black Widow Stepmom and Miss Vu, but then on my original version of this song, that’s some hall of shame material right there!

So I finally ended up having to bring in an all-star guest singer for this one. None other than Richard La Bianco of Wildon Ash fame. (So that’s what this song would sound like with a professional singer on it!)

Without further adieu, cue up that country hip hop . . .

Turn out the lights the party’s over
They say that all good things must end
Call it a night the party’s over
And tomorrow starts the same old thing again

What a crazy, crazy party never seen so many people
Laughin’ dancin’ look at you, you’re havin’ fun
But look at me I’m almost cryin’ but that don’t keep her love from dyin’
Misery ’cause for me the party’s over

Turn out the lights the party’s over
They say that all good things must end
Call it a night the party’s over
And tomorrow starts the same old thing again

Once I had a love undyin’ I didn’t keep it, wasn’t tryin’
Life for me was just one party and then another
I broke her heart so many times had to have my party wine
Then one day, she said sweetheart the party’s over

Turn out the lights the party’s over
They say that all good things must end
Call it a night the party’s over
And tomorrow starts the same old thing again
And tomorrow starts the same old thing again

I had a friend request some tab for the bass line, so here’s the transcription:
