Etcetera

Lyrics and Music by Daniel Mandel

You sent a message to me

Suggesting the theater at three

walk in the park just to see

Or an exhibit at a museum

Or etcetera

Dot dot dot

 

I especially like your etcetera

I especially like your etcetera

 

You’d  like to take in a show

You sometimes take me in tow

pleasure you rarely forgo

And etcetera

With an ellipse

 

I especially like your etcetera

I especially like your etcetera

 

The way that you please with your parentheses 

firm emphasis following your ellipse

A question mark that shows up in the dark

But I especially like your etcetera!

I was attending a "Discipline of Freedom" workshop in France and my creative channels were wide open. One night I couldn't sleep and checked my emails and I was delighted to receive an invitation to several cultural events. The email closed with a deliciously ambiguous... "etcetera" and the song came to life! To find our more about the Discipline of Freedom workshop, send us an email!
