Dirty Feeling

By Bob Schneider

We want to show how Bob's poems evolve into finished music products. First is the original poem, Ice Burns.

Ice Burns

While burning down the ice trees
Behind your house last night
The police showed up
Responding to a report that a
Real tiger had been spotted in the area

While the ice trees burned you declared
Mars to be the brightest star in the sky
You held a small horse in your hands
I rode it up and down your arms
As The Police played 'Shadows In The Rain' 

"Did it rain last night?" the neighbor
Asked this morning holding her dog
And "What happened to all those trees
You planted last winter, when the world

Was as cold as night sticks?"

Then, here are the lyrics to song, Dirty Feeling.

Dirty Feeling

As the words fell from your mouth
Ice trees burned behind your house
The cops showed up in a blinding blue
They all swore their love to you
I guess a tiger had broken free
On the anniversary of the crowning of the king
But you said it doesn’t mean a thing
Holding a small horse in your hands
While we were listened to your GF’s BF’s band

I got a dirty feeling come over me
I want to ride your horse into your sea
Up your arms and down your back
Throw your course right off its track
Turn on all the lights so you can see
This dirty feeling that’s come over me

And a year can come around
And drag you right along the ground
Like it’s all just one dark night
With no way into the light
Well I know exactly what that’s like

I got a dirty feeling come over me
I want to ride your horse into your sea
Up your legs and down your face
Break all the doors down in your place
Throw on the lights so that you can see  
This dirty feeling that’s come over me
