Creative Brief

This was created last minute for a contest.  I decided not to enter it, anyway... if someone is interested in mixing it for fun, let me know.  

Might could use a bass, and im open to any random and strange additions anyone can thing of that will make this better.  If you do a good Tom Waits vocal, im game for that as well.  

 

 

Jacks Story 

words & music  by  Mark Oates

 

V1

smiling like a cheshire cat

with teeth like snakes of gold

and writhing in his eye an evil  aglow

the curse that cut into his face

with knife on halloween

it wasnt how he though his life would go

 

CHORUS

he didnt know that he would have

a jacko lanterns face

he had hoped  that he'd survive to

be a tasty pumkin pie

 

and now hes left out in the cold

with a burning deep inside

haunted by the hopes he though would be

on a haunted halloween

 

V2

and in a twisted turn of luck

his savior did arrive

cloaked in black, upon a horse of death

an evil man with out a head

did steal him on that night

somehow he found a fate much worse than death

 

Chorus 

he didnt know that he would have

a jacko lanterns face

he had hoped  that h survive to

be a taste pumkin pie

 

and now hes left out in the cold

with a burning deep inside

haunted by the hopes he though would be

 every  haunted halloween
