My drummer and I did this with one local producer- Gene Gibson. We recorded it live, in Gene's carpeted basement studio, in one take. That night I think we did ten songs in twelve takes and we decided this one would be released first as a demo.

The song itself is about taking care of business. It has elements of "rocky reggae and dream folk music" but consists quite simply of an acoustic guitar and a Ludwig drum set. There are no effects on the vocals or guitar. When we finished recording it I looked up at [my drummer] Jim, and smiled.


Everybody gets, what everyone gets
Everybody is, what everyone is
Everybody, says what everyone says- what they say is:

They say you can be sure,
Everybody gets their reward

And, everybody has their work to do
So it's no excuse
And, everybody needs just what,
Needs what they need, more than one mouth to feed
And, everybody wants, just what they want- what they want is:

They, want what they can't have
For the good and for the bad

...Oh and everybody and everyone
