Break'n the Ice W/Paralax (Word Association Challenge)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Sorry about the late entry. I invited my long time friend Terry (Paralax) to help me out with this challenge. If you have cans on, I'm the guitar to the left, Terry is the guitar on the right. I'm singing on to the right, Terry's backup to the left? I looped the drums, bass and Terry added the sugar coated lead at the end. The first verse/chorus was written by Terry, I manipulated the second and the third is a medley of both. Thanks Terry for all your help, you really compliment well.

Lyrics
Dating was hard for a shy boy like me
Clowning around was always my recipe
For break'n the ice, break'n the ice
If you're having fun then my job is done
With break'n the ice...

Dating was hard for a shy boy like me
Thinking of cool things to say wasn't me
For break'n the ice, break'n the ice
I'm just try'n to be cute and having some fun
Break'n the ice...

Dating was hard for a shy boy like me
Clowning around was always my recipe
For break'n the ice, break'n the ice
I'm just try'n to be cute and having some fun
Break'n the ice...

Rockin' roadhouse blues. Damn, you guys are good. (I might have been able to help w/ lyrics cause everything "was hard for a shy boy like me". Clowning around was the only option ;-)
