Notes on "The Makeup Song"


"The Makeup Song" was written on October 28th, 2005.

The melody is borrowed from the Hoagy Carmichael song "Cooking".

Hence the apology.

Here is the deal with "The Makeup Song" that you may or may not know: It's true.

Sort of.

And here is how I know.

I used to work at this grocery store, and one day while we were on break the manager from the meat department told me about how representatives from the makeup companies would come around every so often and buy up all his rotten outdated meat.

Just think about that, ladies.

Oh yeah...and if you wear red makeup you're also smearing on dead ground-up bugs.

Dead ground up bugs and spoiled sausage.

Come give me a kiss, baby!
