ALL CAPS - You're My iPod

For a long time--over a year--we have had this amazing plan to do a music video for this song with a person in an iPod costume, but we honestly expected someone to think of it first. So this summer, we got an HD video camera and made the video! Next thing we knew, there was an ALL CAPS music video contest so we entered! I believe the contest ends today.

"But Instead" - Original Ukulele Song by Anna

Watch it on YouTube
This is a quick little song I wrote one fine day when I should have been doing other things. The lyrics and chords are as follows.

 D  A  D  G  A  D

 I want to go outside but it's so freaking hot
I want to eat some lunch but the leftovers have gone to rot
I've got a script to memorize for a play that's pretty cool
I'm going on a trip and getting back the first day of school

It's summertime I got things to do
But at the same time I don't want to
I should be doing something productive
but instead I'm doing this

I've got new shoes to break in but nowhere to go
The summertime should be fun but often isn't so
I've got service hours I need to complete
but making videos is also pretty neat


I swapped clothes with my friends because I'm sick of mine
I'm trying to write a song and finding it difficult to rhyme
I've got summer homework to do but my arms are tired and sore
'cause I'm learning to juggle and keep dropping balls on the floor
