Idiot Proof

Last week I visited my daughter. When I got up in the morning, I thought I'd make myself some toast, but I couldn't find any bread. So I started singing to myself, "She gotta toaster but she ain't got no bread." By the time I got home that evening, I had this song written in my head. Just a bit of silliness, but I had fun with it.

Ironically, she did have bread. I just didn't look in the most obvious place.

 

IDIOT PROOF

You gotta toaster but you ain't got no bread
All you got is empty space in your head
Yeah you heard me, that's what I said
You're an idiot

You got a book with only one blank page
Ain't no hamster in your cage
Manual transmission with no gears to engage
Yeah, you're an idiot

You are an imbecile
But look at me, I fell head over heels
I suppose I might as well face the truth
I'm not idiot-proof

You got a silo but you ain't got no grain
An empty space where there should be a brain
In case you didn't hear me, I'll tell you again
You're an idiot

You got a turkey but where's the stuffin'
Look up it's ass and see a whole lot of nothin'
You could have had all my sweet lovin'
You're an idiot

You are an imbecile
But look at me, I fell head over heels
I suppose I might as well face the truth
I'm not idiot-proof

Got a message from my friend Cupid
Said he tried to help me out, and he's sorry he couldn't
He couldn't find a heart for him to shoot at
Damn, I'm an idiot

You are an imbecile
But look at me, I fell head over heels
I suppose I might as well face the truth
I'm not idiot-proof

My initial reaction here was, "Yep, he's finally getting bored with BIAB..." Lol

I think what this needs is a more "clever" way to call someone an idiot. So, when you say, "I'm not idiot proof," it will seem more "underhanded". Does that make sense?

@japov Not sure what you mean about being bored. 🤔 

I take your point about a more clever way to call someone an idiot. I'd have to balance that against echoing the word idiot from the verse to the chorus.

Not sure what you mean about being bored.

Intro, mix, instrument placement (steel guitar) seems a bit cluttered, haphazard... Great sax solo though!

Also, your vox tone is real good here 🙂
