Here’s another song for the new play I’m writing with Jill Jaysen: There is a scene where the older “popular” girls have to participate in “Buddy Day”. They are supposed to mentor some younger kids. Instead they end up ignoring the younger kids and just staying in their “clique”. This song will be song by the younger kids. The older ones will just be talking on oblivious… (BTW definitely listen with your headphones. I think you’ll notice a huge difference)
Here’s the audio only version:

Listen To Me! | 4/18/2010| Song # 417 | EAEBEB capo 4th fret
I am talking to you!
But you don’t seem to hear
I am talking to you
But it’s like I’ve disappeared
What do I need to do
So that I can get a little bit of your attention?
What do I need to say
So you’ll zip your lips and listen?
Listen to me! Listen to me!
I’ve got something to say
Listen to me!
I don’t have all day
Listen to me Listen to me!
Do I have to shout?
To get my message out
Do I have to scream
To break in to your scene?
Do I have to dance
To even get a chance
Do I have to stomp
To interrupt your pomp?
Just because I’m younger than you
Doesn’t mean my words are less true
Just because you’re older than me
doesn’t mean that I cannot see
What’s going on…around here
(possibly repeat 1st two verses and end quietly with the older kids still talking)
