The Rice Song

It was my New Year's Resolution to compose a song with music.  I got the song done, but not the music.  I decided this year I rather spend more time writing than putting together a tune, so there's a good chance that this song won't see music, at least for a while.  Perhaps one of my musically talented friends will be bored enough to put this song to music...


The Rice Song


I had one thing on my mind
one thing I was looking for
You’d think I’d be able to find
this item in the grocery store

Refrain:
Well I walked through the aisles once, walked through them twice
But with all of my searching I could not find the rice
Where oh, where is the rice?
I’m willing to pay the price.
If it’s on sale.

Chestnuts, chicken, carrots, broccoli
Peanuts, soya, peppers, teriyaki
There’s one thing I need to make my stir fry nice
One thing I need, and that’s two cups of white rice

Refrain

I dropped my cell phone in the toilet
But I knew that it wasn’t spoiled yet
There’s one thing I need to fix my mobile device
One thing I need, and that’s two cups of white rice

Refrain
