Carol Brown Lyrics (S02EP05)

by the clam
Loretta broke my heart in a letter
She told me she was leaving and her life would be better
Jo broke it off over the phone
After the tone she left me alone

Jen said she'd never ever see me again
When I saw her again she said it again
Jan met another man
Leeza got amnesia just forgot who I am
Felicity, so there was no electricity
Emily, no chemistry
Fran ran, who's turned out to be a man
Flo had to go; I couldn't go with the flow

Carol Brown just took a bus out of town
But I'm hoping that you'll stick around

He doesn't cook or clean; he's not good boyfriend material
Do we even eat cereal?
You'll lose interest fast, His relationships never last
Shut up girlfriends from the past
He says he'll do one thing and then he goes and does another thing
Oh woman, who asked all my ex girlfriends into a choir and got them to sing?
Who? Who? Mmm, shut up
Shut up girlfriends from the past

Mimi will no longer see me
Britney, Britney hit me
Paula and Stephanie, Stella and Stephanie
There must be 50 ways that lovers have left me
Carol Brown just took a bus out of town

Love is a delicate thing it could just float away on the breeze
He said the same thing to me
How can we ever know if I'm the right person in this world
He means he looks at other girls
Love is a mystery, it does not follow a rule
This guy is a fool
He will always be a boy; he's a man that never grew up
I thought I told you to shut u-u-up
Mona, you told me you were in a coma
Tiffany, you said that you had an epiphany
Mmm, would you like a little cereal?
Women, who asked this choir of my ex girlfriends?
Was it you, Carol Brown? Was it you, Carol Brown?
Carol Brown just took a bus out of town
But I'm hoping that you'll stick around

Carol Brown

Transpose down an octave for the harmony.

And why not the whole thing?

Update: When playing the D's and A's there's some strategic releasing of the B string to mimic the riff a little like so
D
e-2==2====2-2-2====
B-3==0====3-3-0====
G-2==2====2-2-2====
D-0==0====0-0-0====
A-x==X====x-X-x====
E-x==X====x-X-x====
A
e-0==0====0-0-0====
B-2==0====2-2-0====
G-2==2====2-2-2====
D-2==2====2-2-2====
A-0==0====0-0-0====
E-x==X====x-X-x====

Good corrections, thanks.

I could have listened a few more times I suppose. :)

No problem, I'll be happy to (try to) tab anything should people want it of me. Good practice for my ears and hands and good learnings for you all. I can do most stringed instruments and a ittle bit of pianokeyboardsynthofunk, though its a bit tough to write out sheet music with text. I'm at your commanding.

It's funny; I thought it was Jenny said she'd never ever see me again so then it could be some sad metaphor about how he didn't want to be a folk parodist (writing songs like Jenny) anymore, but then he did it again..
Just my wonky armchair psychiatrist brain. Don't mind me.

I thought to begin with the lyrics were: 'Paula and Stephanie, Stella and Stephanie' as if to say Stephanie ended up having a relationship with both of those girls but yes I am starting to hear 'Persephone'.

Anyway, this song is definitely one of my faves from Season 2 :D

Anyone got tabs for an Omnichord? :) My parents are visiting this weekend and bringing the one from when I was growing up. I'm not sure when we got it. Late 80's or early 90's maybe? I'm hoping to see if I can figure out some of Carol Brown.

It should just be a case of following the chords I outlined above with the subsequent buttons on the omnichord and finding the bass pattern that is closest to the one in the song (the exact one mightn't be there as you might not have the same model and programmed sounds as Big J) and then setting the right tempo for the song. So my tab above should apply, is what I'm getting at. I should apply very muchso. Each chord up there will just be a press of one little button.
