Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Carnival (Momma Said)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 104 : "Halloween"

Lyrics:

<p>
Momma said she’d meet me at the edge of the park
But I’ve been here for hours and it’s getting dark 
I’m waiting like a good boy, just doing what I’m told 
Hope she comes back soon ‘cause I’m getting cold 

Was she kidnapped by a scary clown 
Stole away as the sun went down 
His shoes made a terrifying tread 
His squirting flower spat poison instead 

Was she eaten by a lion or two 
Who had escaped from the carnival zoo 
Roaming the grounds searching for a bite 
Starved by their masters until tonight 

Momma said she’d meet me at the park 
I’ve sat for hours it’s getting dark 
Waiting like a good boy, doing what I’m told 
Hope she comes back soon ‘cause I’m getting cold 

Is she trapped in the ghost train ride 
It’s dark in the tunnel and freezing inside 
Seatbelt too tight it won’t come undone  
No way to leave and nowhere to run 

Is she stuck on the Ferris wheel 
High in the air with the creaking steel 
Too high to jump and too far to fall 
With no chance of getting down at all 

Momma said she’d meet me at the park 
I’ve sat for hours it’s getting dark 
Waiting like a good boy, doing what I’m told 
Hope she comes back soon ‘cause I’m getting cold 

Some boys join the circus when they run away
But when Mom does a run then the boys have to stay
Momma said “I’ll meet you at the park”
Momma said “I’ll meet you before it gets dark”

Now the sun has set and I’m here alone
The ringmaster is going home 
A nice man with a badge asks where she might be 
Why didn’t momma come back for me? 

[Exit]
