Album for (Certain) Kids

Subversive children’s lyrics have a long and glorious tradition, of which I am well fond.

My grampa and dad passed along a number of taboo pieces to me and my brother. It was part of the way that they displayed affection, and it supported some sense of relief from the stress associated with our disinhibition. It also established a kind of limit beyond which we did not tread at home.

Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book was published a year before I was born, and I was given a copy when I was just a tyke. I’m not sure what happened to it, but I currently have a treasured copy from the first printing.

In any case, many of the songs on this album are of the type that I would have liked when I was about 5 years old.

Others among them are less childish, but still whimsical.

When I have a dozen of them created, I'll publish them as an album.
