about

My FAWMing started in 2011 when after telling my parents about it, poems and lyrics started coming from my dad, who had never written music or played instruments before. He has a real love of music though, which heavily influenced me, so it was in there.

This year, as with every FAWM, he started sending me lyrics and this set immediately jumped out at me. I was planning to try to use every instrument I own, and this song fit right in with that idea. I made only minor changes to fit the song I wrote. It was SO much fun and I am thrilled we were able to write yet another song together!!

lyrics

I like the drums
Cause they’re so great
I like the drums
The way they resonate
I like the drums
And they’ll lend a hand
Part of my little basement band

I like the bass
It thumps a line
I like the bass
'Cause it sounds so fine
I like the bass
And it’ll lend a hand
Part of my little basement band

I like guitar
The strings that ring
I like guitar
'Cause they swagger with a sting
I like guitar
It is a star
A star of my little basement band

All doing their part in my basement band
All doing their part in my basement band

I like the horns
The way they play
I like the horns
They play a special way
I like the horns
And they'll lend a hand
Part of my little basement band

I like the keys
They go along
I like the keys
'Cause they dance around the song
I like the keys
And they’ll lend TWO hands
Part of my little basement band

Chorus
I like the band
All doing their part in my basement band
I like the band
Playing the chart as part of my basement band
I like the band, I like the band
I’ll play for you if you come on in and clap your hands
Clap your hands, come clap your hands
Be a part of my special little basement band

about

ZeCoop Kalamazoo, Michigan

I love playing music and keep learning new instruments. My songs are in a wide range of styles, from indie-rock to surf, to folk to rock to electronic... I never know. I record at home in a studio I put together in a spare room. I work (via the web) with a lot of vocal/lyric collaborators from all over the world.
