Disneyland Of My Heart

If you ever look through my mailing list archive, i usualy sign every issue in the following way:

Love,
Something Witty,
Lance Romañce

Well, in list number 113, called "Jerry: Portrait of A Moron," I spent the entire issue throughly insulting and complaining about an ass hole i know who needed to be thoroughly insulted and complained about. After the tearing a part, i signed the letter like so:

Love,
The disney land of your heart,
Lance Romañce

One day while going through old mailing lists, i discovered this forgotten signing and liked it. One day while playing music with some friends of mine, i was trying to think of some lyrics to sing and I remembered this signing and started to sing about how you are the disneyland of my heart, some of the words remain the same. This is the same session which I recorded Holly's Song, which all though it has the same title, is a completely different song than Holly's Song that is on Titty Titty Yum Yum. This was in either very late april or very early may of 1999.

Any hoo, I went back and took some of the lyrics I came up with when I was just making it up with my friends, which I had recorded, and then proceeded to write a song around it.

I don't really know any special tricks i did with this song. The squeaky noise is done with my voice. I wish I had put an echo on the key board part, which I think is great, but I didn't have any echo at the time. There was also a key board solo at the end, where the walking bass is but I didn't like it there so I took it out.

This was the second successful song I recorded for Tity Tiitty Yum Yum in May of 1999. It was the 3rd song I recorded in general, successful or un succesful. This song was mixed differently than most of the other songs because I mixed it on a boom box with rca imputs, as oppose to the giant speakers I usually use. I might have mixed kung fu fighting on the same speakers.

Look at this verse:

if you were in the hall of presidents
i would vote for you
if you were a country bear
i'd be whinnie the pooh
if you were the pinocio ride
i would never lie
but if you went the way of bambi's mom
i would surely cry

This verse was ommitted from the song because it made too many references to disney movie characters and events. Because this song is Disney LAND of My Heart, I made it a point to make all references to things that are spacific to disney land. I tried to get a few rides in that were not at disney world, to make it extra spacific to land. I only went to Disneyland once and it was when I was six years old, so I had to do a little research to complete the song, and replace that verse.


you make space
mountain look gay
you make tomarrow land
look like today
you make the matterhorn
crumble to the ground
you make a small world
look like a small town

you are the disneyland of my heart
your the disneyland of my heart

you make a flying dumbo
you would fly even higher
if you were a disney buck
i would be the buyer
you are the tea cups
swirling around my heart
if you were mr. toad's wild ride
i would be one of the carts

you are the disneyland of my heart
your the disneyland of my heart

you keep the main street light parade
from going dark
if you were 20,000 leages under the sea
i would be a shark
you make 360° Circlevision
seem square
you make the pirates of the carrabian
look like the country bears

you are the disneyland of my heart
your the disneyland of my heart

you make big thunder mountain
seem like the morning dew
if you were in the hall of presidents
i would vote for you
you make the Mark Twain Steam Boat
look like tom clancy
you make the the swiss family tree house
seem kind of antsy

you are the disneyland of my heart
your the disneyland of my heart
