“Annelizabeth” – the Final Kickstarter Song

Hello Misadventurists,

Our last song we’re presenting for Kickstarter backers is a very special one. An old family friend and former neighbor of Beej’s – who has known him since he was 2 years old –  learned about our project and decided to help back it. So we created this little ditty for her.

This time, Stax handled the song and melody writing, singing and lead guitar duties while Beej cowrote the lyrics, played backup guitar and produced. Some of the lyrics are about Maria Avenue (Beej’s early childhood street), others celebrate early 1980’s Hall and Oates singles, while still others deal very frankly with Corgi dogs and British royalty.

Probably the less explained the better. We don’t want to ruin the magic! (But just in case you want to analyze them for hidden Masonic codes or something, they are printed below the song for your perusal).

Enjoy!

ANNELIZABETH

AnnElizabeth
What’s been going on
Since the 20th Century
When we played out on your lawn

On Maria Avenue
In the sunny bygone days
Was it 1982?
It’s all lost in a haze

CHORUS
But the music still remains
Hall and Oates and Air Supply
They “Can’t Go for That”
And they’re “All Out of Love”
But they’ll never die

Queen Elizabeth
She’s never seen alone
loyal Corgis by her side
As she poses on her throne

She and you could be
Best Corgi pals forever
In the palace garden
You’d walk your dogs together

CHORUS 2
And all the paparazzi
Would follow you guys all around
And eventually
You’re Prince George’s new Godmother
And your face will grace the pound

Ann Elizabeth
Where can you be?
Are you teaching troubled kids
From the inner city?

Broadening their minds
With martial arts and poetry
But reading only poets
Whose names begin with “E”

Like Ena, Erin, Eben,
Those grandchildren machines
They’ve cranked out nearly seven
Almost a softball team

CHORUS 3

They’ll all play ball together
On Wrigley’s Field, no rain delays
Smiles on all their faces
Corgis stealing bases
On brand new sunny days….
