The Brave Eagles Sings "The Hump Day Song"
I'm a very lucky person in the fact that I live in a small town with some great friends. I wrote a little blog a few years ago about The Hump Day Gang that you may want to use to refresh your memory. Hump Day here in Fitzgerald, GA means seeing the boys, having a few cocktails, and cooking some fine southern meals. It is a time for all of us "men" to get together and solve the world's problems as we see them. I am a regular attender and I would like to take this time to thank my lovely wife for allowing me to be a part of this group every Wednesday night!
My good friend, fellow Hump Day-er and guitar player, Hal Wiley and I were sitting around his pool watching the kids swim the other day when we came up with the idea to write a Hump Day song. It needed to be witty, but also describe what Hump Day is all about. He picked the tune and I got busy on the words. We sang it for the gang two weeks ago and did an encore performance this past Wednesday that somehow made its way to video.
Now before you watch this, I need to add a few disclaimers! This group in no way disrespects the women in our lives. This song is made to be funny and pick on the fact that every once in a while one of our wives may fuss about their husband being at Hump Day, or they may plan an event on a Wednesday night causing a member to be unable to attend the weekly Hump Day gathering. Of course all of us make fun of the buddy whose is catching a little devil from his woman at home, and we even set up a little prize for the wife who so dares inter fear with a Hump Day activity. It's called "The Pink Shirt"
Again, it's all in fun and the girls get a big kick out of it! No harm done as the attitudes are generally all good! The Pink Shirt is mentioned in the song several times. I didn't want you to be lost!
Other things in the song that may need a little clearing up:
Kyle- He is a gourmet cook. The kid cooks stuff that is simply awesome, even if we don't know what it is!
Davis- He eats! A lot! Never cooks!
Bon-co- A dice game that the girls get together and play. For some reason they try and meet on Wednesday nights once a month.
Clay Day- A popular saying in this group as Clay seems to hunt, fish and play more than the rest of us.
"Playing her cards right"- As in after several cocktails someone says "If my wife plays her cards right, she might get lucky when I get home". (Never seems to work out for some reason)
Quiet sign- Bill has a sign from a golf tournament that says "QUIET". He brings it out when the conversation gets a little too noisy for the neighborhood.
Hump Day Lite- Some boys that live to the South of us have started their own Hump Day tradition. We call them "Hump Day Lite"
So enjoy the song for what it is! FUN! The video is not very clear because it was dark, but the audio is not bad!
Happy Hump Day to all the boys!!
