I figured I'd upload this piece in time for Halloween. Some of my other pieces are still even more unpolished. And sorry for the extra noise; my cats can tolerate the banjo, but once I start singing it's another story.

Hate to complain,
but I love to whine!
So I'm whining that the lyrics are not easy to hear and understand, to MY old ears, and I couldn't get the Closed Caption option to work.

Might you be so kind as to post the lyrics here?

Though from Stepford they say you are goin',

I won't miss your sweet face or your smile

'Cause they'll wind up on some other robot

To remind me of you for a while.

 

Don't lament flesh-and-blood boon companions

As you hastily bid them adieu,

Just remember the Uncanny Valley

And the robot that looks just like you.

Let us press on to full automation

‘Til there's no human bein' left to screw

Or remember the Uncanny Valley

And the robot that looks just like you

 

So that's the shortened version I worked with. Full version with all the verses is here: http://filkontario.ca/fkowp/wp-content/uploads/documents/FilKONtario26_Songbook.pdf

And it's all good. Not only am I prone to mumble and press too lightly on the frets, but I can't say I've invested heavily in recording equipment.

A big thank you, from me.

And a group hug from Will and the girls!
