about

After 3 years of playing together; busking, doing private parties, or playing such legendary Seattle venues as Café Racer or Seattle Jazz Vespers, Hobbit & Hare decided they wanted record their first release. But how to afford it?

How about, instead of dithering about it, we just "pull the trigger" with what money we can come up with, record a single, and then try to "bootstrap" the proceeds from the single to help defray the costs of the full CD? Yeah! that's the ticket.

So your $2 (or more!) will go towards studio time, providing a small honorarium to the wonderful guest artists we're bringing in, and final duplication costs for the CD itself.

Oh yeah... I know it says it's an album, but that's just because there's more than one track on it and we're so old we remember buying singles on 45 rpm vinyl with an "A side" and a "B side" song on them.

Also, we know it's the moral equivalent of a "dad joke" but we couldn't resist the opportunity to announce our "hit single" was for sale.

Thanks for being patrons of the arts!

Track Name: Keepin' Up With My Jones
LYRICS
When the junkie man he breaks into your home
He steals your laptop and your tablet and your phone
But when you catch him just outside your kitchen door
He's sniffin' and stumblin' and cryin' and mumblin'
He's just gotta score (cuz he's)

Keepin' up with his jones, He don't make any bones about it
He's got to have that sweet, white candy, Every day
Keepin' up with his jones, There ain't nobody can stop him
So Mister you had better not stand in his way
Mister you had better not stand in his way

My neighbor lady is sweet to the bone
But so damn lazy she won't stir to get the phone
Just look at her cigarettes and see she needs more
Whether four in the mornin' or pourin' or snowin'
She's out to the store (she's just)

Keepin' up with her jones, She don't make any bones about it
She's got to have that bittersweet candy, Every day
Keepin' up with her jones, There ain't nobody can stop her
So Mister you had better not stand in her way
Mister you had better not stand in her way

Everybody's got their own jones
Take it away they all weeps and moans
You say mine's weird and I say it's not
Makes me wonder what kind of jones you got

Now it's four in the morning and I can't sleep
I'd pray the lord but I'm afraid I'm in too deep
When I smell them java beans I can't remain mild
It's brewin' and drippin' I'm stewin' and twitchin'
It's drivin' me wild (I'm just)

Keepin' Up With My Jones, I don't make any bones about it
I've got to have that hot black candy, Every day
Keepin' Up With My Jones, There ain't nobody can stop me
So Mister you had better not stand in my way
Mister you had better not stand in my way
Track Name: Sheik Of Araby
LYRICS
I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above,
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule these sands with me,
The Sheik of Araby.
