monday song #106: “see-saw”

lyrics

i’ve been hankering to do an old-time song since i started up again. i sat down with my daughter’s ukelele while i was watching the olympics and sang the opening phrase first thing.

over the past couple months, i’ve been singing a few hours a day, which has opened up some previously unavailable high notes. i had a lot of fun quavering in the upper register, reinforcing the novelty old-timey (aka comedy) feel.

i’m hoping to write more in the standards vein in the coming weeks.
