I Have No Need Of You

So what do you get when mama works in medicine and daddy for the church? Theologically correct, anatomical songs of course.

I’m pretty sure this one has Billy Joe Shaver’s name all over it both in content and character.

Love to hear your thoughts.

I Have No Need Of You
The head can’t say to the belly,
“I have no need of you.”
The belly can’t say to the toe nail,
“I have no need of you.”
The toe nail can’t say to the ear,
“I have no need of you.”
The ear can’t say (no one would listen anyway),
“I have no need of you.”

The big toe can’t say to the elbow,
“I have no need of you.”
The elbow can’t say to the ankle,
“I have no need of you.”
The ankle can’t say to the ear,
“I have no need of you.”
The ear can’t say (no one would listen anyway),
“I have no need of you.”

Baby Falling Through The Atmosphere

Like a lot of the dittys, this one came about via an imaginary video: in this case a David Bowie video from perhaps the early 80′s.

Naturally, this song requires some sort of controlled free-fall. Note to all: that controlled free fall should NOT be laying on your back with the baby above you if it’s been less than 20 minutes since feeding time.

Can you tell me baby why you’re falling?

Gonna Do Some Exercises (To Get My Baby All Tired)

I don’t feel the need to be ashamed. There’s just times when you really need the baby to be ready for a nap about an hour earlier than usual.

Man, it’s freaking hard to wear them suckers out though.
