Watch out. Like hot pastrami, I'm on a roll.

This idea has been sitting in my music notebook for some time.
I envision this one as being very upbeat and jazzy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Title: My Sunday Socks   
Track Time: 00:00 / BPM: 00

CHORUS
Some folks got their Sunday shoes
Others got the Sunday blues
And some folks just don't say a lot
But me, I got my Sunday socks

VS 1
Got my cable knit socks for Sunday
I look forward 'cause it's such a fun day
No one knows I have them on
Announced right here now in this song
Yes sir, that's right; my Sunday Socks

Those darned socks are the perfect pair
Stored next to my underwear
Set aside for Sunday use
Not for any weekly abuse
That's my Sunday Socks

CHORUS

VS 2
Get 'em in the wash on laundry day
Or else I won't know what to say (where they is?)
Saved all week 'cause they're unique
Looking ahead to that day of the week
When I wear my Sunday Socks

When I put on my Sunday best
I don't wear a coat and vest
Denims or khakis; T-Shirt and flannel
Socks and shoes and that is final
I'll wear my Sunday Socks

CHORUS

VS 3 (slower tempo - sad)
Finally wore out my Sunday socks
Now these socks are holey
My holy Sunday socks
Ruined my one and only
My Sunday Socks

Start the search - for another pair
But cable knit socks - are so rare
Argyle socks - are just too square
Somehow - it just - doesn't - seem fair
My - Sunday - Socks

CHORUS/ENDING (resume tempo)

This would make a great jazz piece. It has a good rhythm to it that calls for a quick beat. I’m a little confused in the second part of V2 as to what the singer has on besides socks and shoes. But I like it anyway!

Thanks for the read and comments, Charles.

Maybe I should clarify.
Should be wearing: denims or khaki; T-Shirt and flannel, socks and shoes.

Maybe I need an "It's" before "denims or khakis".

When I put on my Sunday best
I don't wear a coat and vest
It's denims or khakis; T-Shirt and flannel
Socks and shoes and that is final
I'll wear my Sunday Socks

Another good one Steve. You definitely have a way with words.
Looking forward to seeing what you do with this.

Thanks, Sam.

Hammering the eighth note rhythm with big rich chords,
walking bass lines and clean Bebop guitar lick fills. - lol
