(Stelsa's theme)

"imagine, if you will, a situation wherein i wrote the bulk of this song at 4 am and then woke up only to discover the monstrosity i had created in my fleeting hubris"

i wrote this to have really one of those melodies that don't really make any sense. you ever notice how vocal songs only have like 3 or 4 notes in the melody. anyway i also had to write lyrics. have you you ever tried to write a sitcom theme that incorporates harspichord? yikes. i love it when theme songs to sitcoms just outline the premise of the show so... i guess i don't have a great excuse i was just extremely drunk. its literally the chords to the theme song to "Family Matters" you know the show with Steve Urkel who is played by jaleel white who also voiced sonic the hedgehog.

anyway the lyrics that i definitely wrote at 6 this morning are:

its the 90s
and this is a show
about a female troll

she might have kids
or maybe a dog
the premise isnt clear

i like it when
songs just tell you
(what the shows about)

she practices the law
she wears a pink coat
and probly does some other shit too

this is the theme
to "Family Matters"
which I guess came out in the 80s

i checked
but it ran until ' 98

oh cool
i finished the song
