McCallGirl

McCall Bennett aka McCallGirl is the voice of honest comedy. FEMMUSIC heard of her in December because of her song, “It’s Gonna Be an S&M Christmas.” Although unable to cover her then, FEMMUSIC felt that her quick wit and stardom screamed for more. It is our pleasure to introduce “Period Piece.”

Period Piece by McCall Bennett 2002 – www.McCallGirl.com

I can just imagine what some men might say,
If they were the ones to bleed each month for 7 days.
And, oh God, I just love sexual equality:
You take me out to dinner & you don’t even have to pay for me!

I’m bitchy and bloated and you won’t even open the car door.
And yes, I know that this shit is not “politically correct” anymore.

But there’s menstrual cramps, menopause, birth control pills,
bikini waxes, labor, makeup, 6 inch heels,
yeast infections, curling iron burns, hilights in our hair,
And don’t forget, we’ve got to know how to get
Blood out of a pair…of underwear. (Yeah, underwear.)
Life isn’t fair; there’s blood everywhere.

Maya Dorn – “Driving Away” – from Blow It to the Rags – 2000 Maya Dorn – www.mayadorn.com

Driving Away

I saw you driving away this morning
where were you going?
I know that you must be sad but
I’ve never even seen you cry

The wind howls your name and blows
loneliness through the broken window
pane I’m alone at last but it’s a shame
I can’t hold myself while I hold
on to you my arms are long enough
but my heart gets bruised

I saw you driving away this morning
where were you going?

I thank you for all the knowledge
you gave me All your love that
nurtured me and saved me
I hope that you will be good to yourself
I think that you deserve the top two percent
of this nations wealth
Just don’t give your love to anybody else
until I’m far enough away
not to hear her name

Purrbox - "Fireman"

Purrbox – “Fireman” by Johnny Million & M.Isaksen – 2001 – LoveFest Records 

When I grow up I wanna save the world.
When I grow up I wanna save the world.
I wanna lead the way to a better day.
I wanna save the world.

When I grow up I wanna be a hero.
When I grow up I wanna be a hero.
I wanna keep your town from burning down.
I wanna be a hero.
I wanna be the one who will do the job that must be done, yeah…

I will stand tall – I will never run and at the end of the day my job has just begun…

I wanna be a fireman.
I wanna be a fireman.
I won’t come home alive again, no – you won’t see me again.
I wanna be a fireman.

When I grow up I wanna save your life.
When I grow up I wanna save your life.
Cooler than Spiderman – I’m doin’ all I can.
I wanna save your life.

I once was blind but now I can see.
I don’t know anything.
But I look up to you and everything you do.
I wanna shake your hand…
I wanna understand…
I wanna know you’re in a better place.

Christine Kane – “The Customers” – 2002 Lee Baby Slims Music (ASCAP) –

Christine Kane - "The Customers"

Imagine way back when
When angels were deep within
And a light in the North was your only proof
In August lullabies
You were watching the fireflies
You were naked and under a midnight moon

Now nearly everyday
Everything’s just shades of gray
It’s kind of like you’re tired and blue so blue
You work like a dog because
Think about it everyone does
As opposed to the thoughts that there’s no one like you

But there’s a this cafe you pass on the way home
With the steam on the glass and a soft glow and a
piano and a mood
And the customers look happier than you

But there’s this cafe you pass on the way home
And when you’re tired and you’re trashed
And you’re sort of like a list of to-do’s
The customers look happier than you

So imagine if you will
Angels are singin’ still
And though it’s been years
You can still hear that sound
You’re cynical these days
But oh, you pause cuz they say.
All those who labor lay down, lay down

And the cafe you pass on the way home
Takes you back in your mind to a lost time when you
had time to lose
And the customer look happier than you

Sarah Fimm "Sexual Animals"

Sarah Fimm “Sexual Animals” – Cocooned (Sarah Fimm 2001) – to listen to a sample go to 

Sexual Animals – Sarah Fimm (ASCAP)

Please come in the backdoor.
Close it behind you.
I won’t ever tell them you’re here.
Me? I like trapdoors,
The keeping of a secret.
Your affinity for deepness pulls me down.

Sexual Animals
Come inside of me
Just enough to hurt this body
I know you know how
Come inside of me
You know exactly what I need

So careful where you’re touching
I’m not ready yet
What is there to catch you
if the safety net has ripped?
Wide-eyed you look me over,
Unbuttoning my skin
I take a deep breath in.

Sexual Animals
Come inside of me
Just enough to hurt this body
I know you know how
Come inside of me
You know exactly what I need

Your entourage is waiting by the car,
While I sit here bonding
with some brand new scars.
Let’s kiss goodbye,
Close your eyes,
“Sleep” he said.
You’re already dead.

Sexual Animals
Crawl inside of me
Just enough to hurt this body
I know you know how.
Come inside.
Come inside.

"Bear's Inner Peace" by Staff Sergeant Tricia Bear

“Bear’s Inner Peace” by Staff Sergeant Tricia Bear – Copyright June 2001
For more information visit http://www.bearsmelodies.com

Our American flag…Symbolizes the values that we believe…
To never give up hope…And to hold on to life’s dreams.
Stand up tall, proud and shout. For in our mind, we have no doubt.
With dedication, freedom and pride; With the Good Lord on our side; We can make it if we try…March on heroes to survive. There’s a history…Behind a Soldier’s will. To overcome the challenges…With the confidence they feel. Who are Soldiers? Troops…running 5 miles…with gear on their backs. A call for a mission…Means no showers and no racks. Facing the bad weather…And family time…we don’t get back. But support from our family…Keeps our soldier’s on track…Our prayers may bring them back…March on heroes to survive.
Our American flag…Symbolizes the values we believe…
To never give up hope…And to hold on to life’s dreams.
Who are Soldier’s? drill instructors who turn civilians into troops. Training to think positive….Teaching soldiers how to shoot. Soldier’s live in combat zones…Not knowing if they will make it back. The brave, courageous leaders…Whose coffin’s are guarded by U.S. flags. March on heroes to survive.
Our American flag…Symbolizes the values that we believe…
To never give up hope…And to hold on to life’s dreams.
Soldier’s live’s have inner peace…By believing in their abilities. Standing for honor and values…Fighting to keep us free. Living on beans and bullets…Sleeping in a GP tent. Watching for the enemy…As our united forces dig in.
By following the convoy for justice…American troops succeed.
Through hard work and liberty…And by helping others to achieve…peace.
Our American flag…Symbolizes the values that we believe…
To never give up hope…And to hold on to life’s dreams.
Stand up tall, proud and shout. For in our mind, we have no doubt.
With dedication, freedom and pride; With the Good Lord on our side; We can make it if we try…March on heroes to survive.
