Massachusetts (A song for two puppets)

Monotone speaking puppet:
Massachusetts is a state that there are not many songs about. So here is a song about Massachusetts.

Super enthusiastic loud yelling/singing puppet:
Massachusetts!
It is a state!
It is massive! And sets what it chews!
On the east coast!
Of North America!

Yeahhhhh!

Massachusetts!
Has lots of people!
They all live in it!
And some are puppets!
We live here too

Yeahhhh!!

Monotone speaking puppet:
The weather is really unpredictable and there’s nothing to do outside the city unless you like sports and beaches. And eating clams.

There are no buttons.

I want to leeeeaaaave!

TSoAPE theme song: coming soon

Standard

All things in this world of ours (and possibly elsewhere) require a theme song. I like to think that I am not a thing and therefore I am OK with not having one. If you have evidence to the contrary and can prove that I am a thing, you are free to write one about me.

The purpose of this post is to tell you that I am composing a theme for the Slowest of All Possible Elevators. Ideally, I would post it right here, but I can’t because it doesn’t exist yet. I have just decided to write it and I plan to spend as long as it takes tomorrow to do it well. I am not normally a musician, so I may need to enlist outside help for that part.

If it seems that I just stalling by writing about what I will write tomorrow, that is because I am. I think that posting every day as I have been doing lately has not made me more diligent, but also lessened the quality of my work. Anything you have read here lately that has not been terrible was probably written in an earlier time. By putting more time and thought into tomorrow’s entry, I am hoping to make it better.
