The Original Swing

Well little red star rode the bus to school he was looking to do his own thing.
At the school dance he wore rhinestone pants he was doing the original swing.
Well little green tree moved to the inner city she was looking for a song to sing.
She found the people in the town were like the ferns in the forest they were doing the original swing.

The original swing means you do your own thing.

Well hard time Harry was posting them scary conspiracy theories on his wall.
He’s got a lazy boy look upon the fall of babylon, caps lockin’ the original swing.
Well ol’ grey grandpa came down from the mountain I saw him in the bulk section feeding.
The little baby birds in the nest in his beard they were cheepin’ the original swing.

The original swing means you do your own thing.

Glenn Brown knew a lot about sound once the crystal grid was set.
He tweaked the telefunken til the groove was pumpin’. He mastered the original swing.
Well tex-mex rex wears snakeskin boots with spurs when he ain’t figure skating.
He stuck a triple salchow at the ice rodeo, he was doin’ the original swing.

The original swing means you do your own thing.

From the album

“This music not only swings, rocks, and grooves–it matters. It’s the voice of a real community, with a sound and a message the world needs to hear.”

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

Elizabeth Wolff
Cultural Healing Facilitator

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”
