Bitter and Twisted - original by the Forum Monkeys

Recommended Posts

Hi folks

Here's a new original song from The Forum Monkeys.  

The Forum Monkeys are @Mesh, @Bapu and me. Additional backing vocals by the current Mrs Daryl1968

Lyrics below the link 

Bitter and Twisted
Written, performed and recorded by The Forum Monkeys
V1
I used to be happy go lucky
Now I'm a grumpy old bloke
Now you're lucky if I'm happy
I'm not too fond of folk
I was the life and soul at parties
Drinking 'til the vodka ran dry
Now I'd rather sit on my front lawn and moan at the passers by
Pre-chorus
...and folks say that I've changed
My demeanour is strange
Chorus
I'm bitter and twisted
My smile has desisted
My optimism isn't what it used to be
My spark was ignited
But now it's been slighted
Enthusiasm's left my vocabulary
V2
So now I'm used to being this way
You can take me as I am
Old and grumpy is how I'll stay
Frankly I don't give a damn
Pre-chorus
....and folks say that I've changed
My demeanour's deranged
Chorus
Pre-chorus
Chorus to end

CLASSIC!  You are one brilliant wordsmith with a twisted sense of humor.  The vocals really stand out in this, but so does everything else.  Go FM!

Brilliant indeed!!!  Great job guys.  Not only great performances, arrangement and mix but really great lyrics.  Now that I am old and retired, I have claimed the right to be an old grouch and I can relate to these lyrics.

It was a  treat to listen to this song.

Nope, I just paid Daryl ONE MILLION DOLLARS to mix the bass very heavy. 🙂
