You're In My Heart CD Kickstarter Project Update

      The first completed song for the CD is "The Turtle Song" written by Claude Chaney, Tom Monte and Paula Zimmerman-Taylor. This novelty song is unique, child friendly and comical. It also appears on Tom Monte's CD. I have been somewhat reluctant to perform it in public because there is a dance that should go with the song. When you hear the lyrics you'll know exactly what I mean.
     At this time we have 5 backers, who I tentatively believe to be Rex Burns, Penny Kalfus, and Joy Chaney. I do not know who the other two backers are at this time because Kickstarter doesn't officially post the names of the backers until the number reaches ten. So far we're half way there.
We have a grand total of $85.00 with 42 days to raise $2,500. As Confucious once said "The thousand mile journey begins with a single step. We have made the single step, I thank all early
contributors.

At The Club - by Carole King and Gerry Goffin (c)1965 Screen Gems-Columbia Music


               This is a scene from our recent appearance (7/31/12) at The Underground, where we
did a top ten R&B hit from the Drifters.........At The Club.

                                   

                     Well Friday night has finally come around
                     And me and my baby gonna head to a spot we found
                     We're gonna forget our cares and dance on into the night
                     Down at the club (Down at the club)
                     Where everything is out of sight (Down at the club)
                     Down at the club, we're gonna say that it's alright

                     For two bits and a dollar they got a swingin' show for you
                     And the band won't quit 'til everybody tells them to.
                     And when they play that slow dance you can hold your baby tight
                     Down at the clab (Down at the club)
                     Where everything is out of sight (Down at the club)
                     Down at the club, we're gonna say that it's alright

                     Well, they've got lots of pretty dancing girls for the fellas
                     Oh, you better watch out in case your baby gets jealous
                 
                     Now some people might like to sit and watch a picture show
                     Well if that's what your plans are don't ask me to go
                     I'll be where the music plays 'til the early morning light
                     Down at the club (Down at the club)
                     Where everything is out of sight (Down at the club)
                     Down at the club, we're gonna say that it's alright

                     It's alright (it's alright), let me hear you say it's alright (it's alright)
                     Down at the club, we're gonna say that it's alright



                    This is way it was originally done back in 1965. Johnny Moore,
                   Charlie Thomas, Gene Pearson and Johnny Terry a.k.a The Drifters

Under The Boardwalk by Arthur Resnick and Kenny Young

(c) 1964 T.M. Music

Oh, when the sun beats down
And burns the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot
You wish your tired feet were fireproof
Under the boardwalk
Down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby
Is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love
(Under the boardwalk, boardwalk)

In the park you hear
The happy sound of the carousel
You can almost taste the hot dogs
French fries they sell
Under the boardwalk
Down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby
Is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love
(Under the boardwalk, boardwalk)

[Instrumental Interlude]

Oh, under the boardwalk
Down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby
is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk )ut of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be having some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We'll be falling in love
(Under the boarwalk, boardwalk)
