Song #44: What's Up Now?

"Living well is the best revenge." [George Herbert]

Earlier this year I traveled to Atlanta for an intensive three-day beat making session with musician Joe Aielli. While there we programmed several pop tracks and we've been sitting on this song ever since. This week I decided to write some fun revenge lyrics and finally produce the vocal tracks. Cheers--

LYRICS:

Thought that I wouldn't get on living?

Thought I might be down for the count?

Thought that I wouldn't find the strength to get back up on my feet?

How do you like me now?

 

Well it just goes to show that you didn't know

what I had inside to get on with my life,

I'm makin' them all say 'Wow!', so what's up now?

You left me behind but one day you'll find

it ain't much fun when I'm number one,

the talk all over town. So what's up now?

 

When push comes to shove I'm a fighter

I've been down but I got up

And I climbed to the top and I didn't stop,

all beat up, but still on top,

So, how do you like me now?

 

Well it just goes to show that you didn't know

What I had inside to get on with my life,

I'm makin' them all say 'Wow!', so what's up now?

You left me behind but one day you'll find

it ain't much fun when I'm number one,

the talk all over town. So what's up now?

 

A little bigger than life and look all the eyes are all on me now

And you thought I'd stay down but I'm back with a sound, so what's up now?

Now I hear you tell your friends that you're sad it's the end

I don't mean to offend, but honey now that you've come 'round,

that door's closed down

 

Well it just goes to show that you didn't know

What I had inside to get on with my life,

I'm makin' them all say 'Wow!', so what's up now?

You left me behind but one day you'll find

it ain't much fun when I'm number one,

the talk all over town. So what's up now?
