Hey lovelies, hope you are ready for another fun, animal song. I’ve been on holidays together with my husband, and somehow we both were in songwriting mood. As you probably know, we’ve been writing “Executive Realness Monkey Business” together and our recent collab includes animals as well. But there’s a bit more to the story of the song.
I don’t even remember what hotel it was, or what city I was in, but a couple of months ago I was on a business trip (at least I think so, might also have been a uke related trip) and I was just playing around and fell in love with the chord progression of: E – E7M – E7 – Db – A – Db7
Real quick I also came up with the first lyrics. I knew that I wanted it to be a fun song but I had no idea in what direction I could go. Somehow the song didn’t speak to me at all after I came back home, so I didn’t finish it.
So now hubby and I were off from work and I started playing the chord progression and singing the first verse.
I like you and you baby you like me
So when the music starts come on and dance with me
Daaaaaaaaaance with me
He was totally into it and said that it would be fun, to incoporate ways that one could dance. Maybe dancing like animals do. This somehow seems to be our theme, to make funny songs with animals. I really liked the idea so we sat together and worked on the song. We came up with some fun animals and possible moves they could do and finished the song quite quickly.
Here’s a first draft of the song – let me know what you think in the comments:
