“Tell Me What is New” – Free Download

I was asked to develop a theme song for the stage production of “Good Day Nimrod.” As the play centers around competing news shows, I wrote the lyrics to be ambiguous as to whether it was about the news or a relationship. As the play is lighthearted, I thought it would be a good time to try using my ukulele in a recording for the first time.

I had a lot of fun recording this song over the weekend. You can listen to (and download for free) the song below:

Lyrics

Could you tell me what is new?
What’s going on with me and you?
 
Gossip, chatter, babble, buzz
I want the word, be in the know
What will be, what is, what was
Are we ready, set to go?
 
Could I catch a press dispatch,
An expose, communique?
You see I’ve got an itch to scratch
How ’bout a rumor or some hearsay?
 
I really want to know,
Could I hear it from you?
Could you tell me what is new?
 
——–
Could you tell me what is new?
What’s going on with me and you?
 
Shoot the breeze or data please
Brief me on the evidence
A leak, a scoop I’m on my knees
No story and I’m getting tense
 
Could I get the 411
Forget the libel, just the facts
Or a detailed bulletin
Until I know it’s hard to relax
 
I really want to know,
Could I hear it from you?Could you tell me what is new?
