Steemit Open Mic Week 99: "We're Gonna Be Friends" (The White Stripes Cover) by @k0wsk1

in #openmic3 years ago


I want to dedicate this tune to my buddy Caleb, who always used to sing this song with me back in the day. As I say in the video, this has to be one of the most beloved songs of all time, and I hope I did it justice. I really hope you enjoy my cover of "We're Gonna Be Friends" by The White Stripes:

Original Track:

Lyrics:

Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we are going to be friends
I can tell that we are going to be friends

Walk with me, Suzy Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound
Safely walk to school without a sound

Well here we are, no one else
We walked to school all by ourselves
There's dirt on our uniforms
From chasing all the ants and worms
We clean up and now its time to learn
We clean up and now its time to learn

Numbers, letters, learn to spell
Nouns, and books, and show and tell
At playtime we will throw the ball
Back to class, through the hall
Teacher marks our height against the wall
Teacher marks our height against the wall

We don't notice any time pass
We don't notice anything
We sit side by side in every class
Teacher thinks that I sound funny
But she likes the way you sing

Tonight I'll dream while I'm in bed
When silly thoughts go through my head
About the bugs and alphabet
And when I wake tomorrow, I'll bet
That you and I will walk together again
I can tell that we are going to be friends
Yes, I can tell that we are going to be friends

Get behind me Satan was my first Album (actually cd), and the White Stripes hold a special place in my heart.

You killed it. Steem on, I'm glad to call you friend!

Rock on man, the White Stripes are gold. Thanks so much for the kind words, Steem on m8! :)

Hello @k0wsk1, thank you for sharing this creative work! We just stopped by to say that you've been upvoted by the @creativecrypto magazine. The Creative Crypto is all about art on the blockchain and learning from creatives like you. Looking forward to crossing paths again soon. Steem on!

Thank you so much!!! Really appreciated, will be seeing ya’ll around <3

I didn't know about you, @k0wsk1! Just knew about you for the contest you're running with @coruscate. So good for you. Such an enriching experience you'll be having. One of my favourite rock songs to just listen to (because a big part of what I listen to is music I can sing to improve technique or anything) is by The Cure, which is Alt-End. This one I heard it sometime maybe. Anyways, just wanted to say congrats for everything about your conference. I have dreamed of giving some about creative work and some stuff about art. So cool. Good luck!

Oh, we’re not actually hosting a contest together!!! I just hung out with @coruscate the other day and put a notice of my upcoming contest at the end of that post. Thanks for stopping by, I’ll check out that song sometime - I don’t know The Cure too well. Cheers!

Mmm... Actually I was a little distracted, you know jaja And it seems like I wrote what just came out, but yes, I think I also misunderstood. White Stripes and The Cure, for some reason, are too similar to me, so when I read your title I thought of The Cure and was already writing my comment, so... Yes... That was it jajajaja But, no, really, what I got right is that you both are giving your conference, and that is awesome, so you, guys, go succeed. Greetings and I'm sorry for the crazy.

Ok, I got my other mistake. You're not @anomadsoul, of course, but for some reason I really really got confused. So sorry jajajaja So sorry. Good bye.
