Creative Brief

Just my lyrics and a spoken guide, as usual but I DO have a composition idea on this one! :-)

I'm thinking of making the verse a slower tempo and then speeding it up in the chorus and bridge (to kinda' go along with the theme): "Hurry up!... "Wait"... if that's possible. Perhaps going from a folk/rock to rock-style tempo... thoughts? Hopefully, I wrote it to accommodate the idea. I can always change it a bit, of course but I like that concept for this one. If your instrument is not listed, just put it under "other", no probs.

BRIEF: Verse 1 is a true story. My Dad, a naval WWII Vet, accompanied me to the airport when I was leaving for U.S. Navy Boot Camp. As we "waited", he said: "There's two things you'll learn about the Navy. One is, it's "fuckin' this and fuckin' that; and two, it's "hurry up and wait". So true, but the second one carried over into civilian life as well.

V1

Leaving home for military service,

Dad imparted beneficial wisdom.

Must admit, I was a little nervous,

then he started talking ‘bout the system.

One thing they don’t seem to teach in college,

I remember he had wisely stated.

Education given from his knowledge

tempered me for hurry up and waiting.

Ch

Hurry up and wait, hurry up and wait:

bustin’ ass to a heart attack,

then back to a relaxing state.

Hurry up and wait, hurry up and wait:

life is grippin’ crackin’ whips

then suddenly procrastinates.

Just a game of give and take

when I hurry up and wait.

V2

Time and time again, It’s so confusin’,

situations ratchet up behavior.

Either in a rush or barely movin’,

instigating actions that have wavered.

Dance of life conditioning composure:

pace can move or barely be demanding.

Pants on fire due to heat exposure

vanish in a flash and leave me standing.

Br

Boss keeps me runnin’, pay slow in comin’,

under the gun, just make the assumption.

Digital menus make me consent to 

hours phoned in when nothin’ gets done. 

Can’t get around it, only compounds it,

gotta’ pull down my shorts in a bunch.

V3

Thought it might get better as I’m aging,

carousel of fickle feast or famine.

Clauses of technology’s contagions

tellin’ me it just ain’t gonna’ happen. 

More improvement data has delivered

turning into sites of aggravation.

Preference keeps awarding faster bidders:

bytes are burning up my brittle patience.

Ch

Hurry up and wait, hurry up and wait:

bustin’ ass to a heart attack,

then back to a relaxing state.

Hurry up and wait, hurry up and wait:

life is grippin’ crackin’ whips

then suddenly procrastinates.

Just a game of give and take

when I hurry up and wait.
