Cupcake Sad, 

music & lyrics, Christopher Gurr

My first original uke tune. There are a lot of these in the pipeline and I thought my first one to post would be more... sophisticated? Adult? But, sometimes, when the world is big and scary and the emotions are painful and messy... Well, a Shel Silverstein approach is called for. Plus, I wrote this in five minutes while staring at a really good cupcake. So there's that.

In addition to Shel, I can also hear influences of Hayes Carll and Bradly Dean in this...
