Lyrics by Scott Stambaugh, Music by Jillianne Wright


Mr. Quagmire oh it seems
that your slightly lucid dreams
leave your feet stuck in a rather muddy swamp
Can you walk the other way
Step outside your normal day
You are just so due for some auspicious romp

You're not getting very far now, Mr. Quagmire
Your legs are moving fast but the world is spinning past
Don't you know that you been down this road before ?
and the last 10 times didn't go so well, for sure

Mr Quagmire, I maintain
there is quicksand in your brain
you just nevah learn from all of your mistakes
I would love to watch you budge
from your same decisive drudge
Oh what a difference all this changing makes

You're not getting very far now, Mr. Quagmire
Your legs are moving fast but the world is spinning past
Don't you know that you been down this road before ?
and the last 10 times didn't go so well, for sure

Mr Quagmire, wipe your slate
You are captain of your fate
but you always are inclined to dig a ditch
There's a place that you've never been
Time to look underneath your skin
to determine how to better scratch your itch

You're not getting very far now, Mr. Quagmire
Your legs are moving fast but the world is spinning past
Don't you know that you been down this road before ?
and the last 10 times didn't go so well, for sure
Song Comments

Over The Moon
Yay what a great alternative song this is - I like quirky changes and strangeness yet carries a good lyrical message. Nice one!


The Good Stuff: VI
I really like this one! Interesting rhythmical flourishes and chord changes, combined with the wonderfully left-of-center female vocals bring to mind the outstanding German art rock band Slapp Happy. Probably my favorite thing that I've heard from Scott or Jillian. They need to work together more often!

Mystery Too
Jilly and Scott really offer up a special and interesting one here. It ahd me listen like 4 times today. I did a critique review at the Farm on this one, quite enjoyed it, worth more then one listen, The guy Mr. Quagmire. very good, stuck in the muddy swamp, and the legs dont move and the world moving fast. Quicksand in your brain is quite a excellent visual for sure. stuck in more ways then one it seems. The Melody is quite good, it does stick with you in both the intro and the repeating melodic curve of it does stay with you for sure. I like also the transitiions and changes as the song weaves about. I also liked the sound effects here and there, nicely done and tastefully appointed for sure. good playing Jilly and fine lyrics Scott. real fun tune.
