WHAT TO EXPECT…

bors

  1. The Hypnotist (Practical Hypnotism 2003) Can hypnotism force you to do something you wouldn’t do normally? (like quitting smoking?)
  2. She Likes To Pull The Wings Off Flies (That Dress 2004) Some people see everyone else as insects.
  3. Ol’ Cape Cod (Uncovers 2005) written by Claire Rothrock, Milton Yakus, and Allan Jeffrey in 1957.If you’ve never been to Cape Cod, go; if you are on Cape Cod; stay.

  5. Goodbye Paul Tibbets (DeChirico Street 2007)  Paul Tibbets lived a full, rich life. His main claim to fame was what he and his crew did to Hiroshima.

  7. Narcissa (Better Liar 2009) My airhead radar needs improvement.
  8. Ghost Of A Chance (Perfect Wife 2010) written by Victor Young, Ned Washington and Bing Crosby in 1932.Even Casper can fall in love.
    9. Proximity Effect (Perfect Wife 2010) Relationships are all about perspective.

IT DON’T MEAN NOTHIN’…the tenth song from my new album

badchoices-nothin

The tenth song on my new double album “BAD CHOICES/THERE MUST BE A CIRCUS IN TOWN” is an examination and exposition of self absorbtion.

IT DON’T MEAN NOTHING
(If it don’t relate to you)

  • (C. Robertson ’10)

    You can’t walk by any mirror you pass
    You cant walk by any mirror you pass
    First you check out your lipstick
    Then you check out your ass
    You cant walk by any mirror you pass

  • CHORUS:
    A
    It don’t mean nothin’ if it don’t relate to you
    D                                                                                  A
    It don’t mean nothin’ if it don’t relate to you
    E7                                       F#m D
    You don’t care if its tragic don’t care if its true
    A                                                    E7                      A
    It don’t mean nothin’ if it don’t relate to you

    There was a flood and Nashville washed away (2x)
    It aint raining here
    Is all that you could say
    There…

    When you get the blues the whole world has to stop (2x)
    I don’t remember making you
    And emotional traffic cop
    When you…
