Watchin' The World Go By


"Watchin' The World Go By"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Are they lost, do they have a plan?

If I try to speak, will they understand?

Can they see me, like I see them?

Like silver and gold, diamonds and gems?

I can make ‘em look big, I can make ‘em look little

The world is my fishbowl

I’m watchin’ the world go by

Watchin’ the world go by

Watchin’ the world go by

And I’m feelin’ a little bit….high

Can they think, can they see and feel?

Do they see each other as friends or a meal?

Do they communicate with telepathic vibes?

Do they sleep? Are they awake all their lives?

I can make ‘em get drier, I can make ‘em look moister

The world is my oyster

Repeat Chorus

Repeat First Pre

Repeat Chorus

Better Days

 Watchin' The World Go By
 Blame It On The Moon






This one is just a fun jam - a toe-tapper.  It might even be danceable.  Makes you want to move around all wild and crazy-like when you hear it.  It was super difficult to play though because it has guitar-unfriendly chords that are hand-killers.  This is one of the few re-records I've released - a cleaner and higher quality recording than the original.  I have no idea what it's about though.  Seriously, I don't remember at all.  Derive your own meaning and enjoy.
