Story

This is same clip as the Demo but from the latest mix for the world premier at the President's BBQ on Sunday, August 21.

Lyrics

DJ started
With a heck of lead
Down in Alabama
As the #3 seed
Gave the team their first point
Now he’s walkin’ back slow
He’s on the hill, watin’ round
For a birdie in the hole

 

Scott two back
But he wasn’t givin’ up
He had a great quarterfinal
But today was looking tough.
He gave the point to Lynn

Then he headed for the slope
Scott and DJ waiting
For a birdie in the hole.

 

[chorus]

 

Birdie in the hole
Birdie in the hole
On the 18th green
With 30 feet to go
Dylan stepped up
Lookin’ tough, lookin’ bold
With the title on the line
He put a birdie in the hole.

 

Here comes Oskar
Lookin’ tall, lookin’ fly
Got stuck in sand
With the title slippin’ by
Lynn took the point
And were packin’ bags to go
But they all turned around
With a birdie in the hole.

 

Dylan was In a little of jam
Otters down 2-1
It was lookin’ kinda grim
Dylan hit the green
But he had too far to go
He had to putt to save the title
With a birdie in the hole.

 

[chorus]

 

[solo]

 

[bridge] Coach Owen looked across
The river Tennessee
Thinkin’ I’m gonna take
That trophy back with me
His best player’s next
It’s Dylan’s older bro
If anyone can win it
Coach oughta know

 

Brother, brother John
Can you put this thing away?
You’ve been playin’ with ice
Running through your veins
Two-putt and out
Now you all know
They brought the trophy back home
‘Cause a birdie’s in the hole.

 

[chorus]


For Monterey Bay
He put a birdie in the hole.
They’re the National Champs
‘Cause a birdie’s in the hole.

Story

This is a clip of an unreleased demo I cut for the project team, using Garage Band on a Mac, a Zoom H4 recorder (guitar) and a cheap vocal mic. Then I added some backing vocals and reverb.

Story

Heard for the first time during a CSUMB volleyball game vs. Sonoma State, "Hotter Than An Otter" is intended to be the b-side of the "Birdie In The Hole" benefit CD, officially as track #12. It was considered a demo recorded in Garage Band with scratch vocals, but Otter Athletics thought it was good enough to play during warm-up before the game! It was part of an already good week.

Lyrics

 

There’s nothin’ hotter
Than an otter.
There’s nothin’ cooler
Than the Monterey Bay
Nothin’ hotter than an Otter [yell: Otters!]
Nothin’ cooler than the Bay [yell: Monterey Bay!]
Nothin’ better than our volleyball or softball
Come on out and watch us play.
There’s nothin’ hotter
Than an otter.
There’s nothin’ cooler
Than the Monterey Bay
You take drive down south
On Highway 101
Take a right, drive west
To the setting of the sun
We’re a tough little bunch
Ready to play
The best game in town
This side of San Jose
There’s nothin’ hotter
Than an otter.
There’s nothin’ cooler
Than the Monterey Bay
Nothin’ hotter than an Otter [yell: Otters!]
Nothin’ cooler than the Bay [yell: Monterey Bay!]
Nothin’ better than our basketball teams
Come on out and watch us play.
There’s nothin’ hotter
Than an otter.
There’s nothin’ cooler
Than the Monterey Bay
You got your Warriors, Coyotes
And your Lumberjacks
Broncos and Toros
And some Wildcats
Tritons, Seawolves, 
Gators, Pioneers
And Golden Eagles?
We’ll beat ‘em all this year!
There’s nothin’ hotter
Than an otter.
There’s nothin’ cooler
Than the Monterey Bay
Nothin’ hotter than an Otter [yell: Otters!]
Nothin’ cooler than the Bay [yell: Monterey Bay!]
Nothin’ better than our baseball or softball
Come on out and watch us play.
There’s nothin’ hotter
Than an otter.
There’s nothin’ cooler
Than the Monterey Bay
Nothin’ better than makin’ the post-season
Nothin’ cooler than goin’ undefeated
How ‘bout winning a national championship!
That’s the way we play by the Bay
The Monterey Bay
On the Monterey Bay

 

There's nothin' hotter

Than an otter.

There's nothin' cooler

Than the Monterey Bay

 

Nothin' hotter than an Otter [yell: Otters!]

Nothin' cooler than the Bay [yell: Monterey Bay!]

Nothin' better than our volleyball or soccer

Come on out and watch 'em play.

 

There's nothin' hotter

Than an otter.

There's nothin' cooler

Than the Monterey Bay

 

You take drive down south

On Highway 101

Take a right, drive west

To the setting of the sun

They're a tough little bunch

Ready to play

The best game in town

This side of San Jose

 

There's nothin' hotter

Than an otter.

There's nothin' cooler

Than the Monterey Bay

 

Nothin' hotter than an Otter [yell: Otters!]

Nothin' cooler than the Bay [yell: Monterey Bay!]

Nothin' better than our basketball teams

Come on out and watch 'em play.

 

There's nothin' hotter

Than an otter.

There's nothin' cooler

Than the Monterey Bay

 

You got your Warriors, Coyotes

And your Lumberjacks

Broncos and Toros

And some Wildcats

Tritons, Seawolves, 

Gators, Pioneers

And Golden Eagles?

We'll beat 'em all this year!

 

There's nothin' hotter

Nothin' hotter than an Otter [yell: Otters!]

Nothin' cooler than the Bay [yell: Monterey Bay!]

Nothin' better than our baseball or softball

Come on out and watch 'em play.

 

There's nothin' hotter

There's nothin' cooler

Than the Monterey Bay

 

Nothin' better than makin' the post-season

Nothin' cooler than goin' undefeated

How 'bout winning a national championship!

That's the way we play by the Bay

The Monterey Bay

On the Monterey Bay

Another previously unreleased, unrecorded demo. I wrote and performed this song for the 1989 spring banquet of the Earth & Planetary Science department at Washington University in St. Louis, where I was getting my masters's degree.

Story

What if Stephen Colbert came to Thanksgiving? In 1991, I was orphaned at Thanksgiving on the Big Island of Hawaii, where my host had us all play croquet to earn the right to carve the bird. One orphan was a vegan, bless her heart, but it was all in good taste. I mean fun.
