Default The Therapist

The Therapist
© annie tennisco 2006**** are revised lines from the original post
1.)
My half-sister, Lynn, fell in love with Tony Brown
On trial for fifteen homicides that happened near our town
She went to the courthouse every day to support him
Said she needed a backup: I attended only out of boredom
I thought she was nuts and tried to make her say
She understood that he’d be definitely put away.
Well he was found guilty and was waiting on death row
Yet they became engaged and for maid of honor, I said “No”

CH)
I am The Therapist with responsibilities
For helping folks with their lives
That can be a horror to me
Sometimes I understand and other times I don’t
Cause if haven’t been there
I might think it’s just a joke.

2.)
Momma had Alzheimer’s, stayed in an senior folks abode***
Started setting fires, so I had to bring her home***
My husband’s always golfing and I feel his neglect
One daughter was acting up and I felt such disrespect.
I sometimes couldn’t concentrate on what my clients said
Fantasizing of a man I met, who wanted to get me into bed
We‘d cuz Bob was in TV, so was there at Tony’s trial***
He offered me my own show, was sexy and I went into denial***

CH)
I am The Therapist with responsibilities
For helping folks with their lives
That can be a horror to me
Sometimes I understand and other times I don’t
Cause if haven’t been there
I might think it’s just a joke.

3.)
Lynn and Tony married in the jailhouse then she helped him to escape
Things were happening far too fast and I was so afraid.
My husband was still golfing. I had a date with Bob at a hotel
But first his wife had searched me down, with a story she had to tell.
Bob was an all time cheat, so I’d be just another notch
Tony killed my sister, came to me for money, another job he botched***
Momma nailed him from behind with a golf club and beat him black and blue****
The police arrived and I went crazy, as all good Therapists do

CH)
I am The Therapist with responsibilities
But now am on sabbatical
That is a horror to me
I now understand things that my clients spoke
I think I’ve learned an awful lot
And none of it’s a joke!

Interesting song and story - reminds me of a country song. That could be a problem or a strength - depending on what you were trying to do with it. I did like it, though.

Thanks Crowe

glad you liked--no critiques? GOOD! That was a "fresh of the printer" write.

Okay, that line sticks out for me; it doesnt fit into it all.
And when you say say, you mean stay right?

At that, i was thinking 'some therapist you are.' Yea, dont like that line.

Momma had Alzheimer’s, stayed in an assisted-living abode
Started setting fires, so I had to bring her into my home
My husband’s always golfing and I feel the neglect
One daughter was acting up and I just felt disrespect.
I sometimes couldn’t concentrate on what my clients said
Fantasizing about an old boy friend who wanted to get me into bed
We‘d bumped into each other when with Lynn at Tony’s trial
Bob was offering me my own TV spot while I went into denial

I kind of got confused, but besides that, i dont like this stanza. needs work.

My husband was still golfing. I had a date with Bob at A hotel

Bob was an all time cheat, like my dad, but not my man
Tony killed my sister; came after me, and the money Momma had.

She surprised him with a golf club: knocked him black and blue
The police came and I went nuts, as all good Therapists do.

I think you should of made another stanza for the tony killing your sister and coming after you, or make it fit better because, well, you know ADD ppl, yea well, they jump from one topic to the next so quick, thats how it seemed.

hi crazy

this not to be serious song--just one about a Therapist who has a lot of crap in her own life and if it weren't real and she just heard it from someone--it would sound like a joke.

singer went to courtroom to be with her sister and she was bored--not like the sister in love with the serial killer.

then re the word say. It is "say"
"to make her say
She understood
---"

3 Verses are enough. This was a first draft and I will check out V 2 and 3. I do not have ADD and anyone who has probably cannot understand a regular song, let alone one that is full of dysfuntional people. LOL

I’m still thinking ‘some therapist you are’. {i know you're not the therapist}

I get what you’re saying now. That’s my bad. I didn’t think the sister was in love with the killer though.

Ohh, again my bad, damn *lol*, I get it now(the "say She understood…")

Never said you had ADD, I meant it seemed like you jumped from one thing to the next so quickly.

The Therapist, the singer, is bombarded with all kinds of crazy things and is finding out that she is having enough trouble with her own life--how can she understand all the craziness of other's lives--jumping from one thing to another is part of the craziness.

this is not intended to be therapeutical. It is intended to be somewhat like a 'spoof'-even therapists can go nuts being surrounded by temptation and dysfunction.

it's not meant to be sad either--just a spoof

(I am not the therapist--she is fictional)
