Looking for something more adult?  Here's a novel for teens and adults called Sporks!  about life in an all boys Catholic School.  If you went there, you'll understand.

Baby Angst (Everybody Wants to Pinch My Cheeks!)

Silly Joe
Music and Lyrics by Joe Consiglio


When our son was little, the church ladies couldn't keep their hands out of his curly hair.  One Sunday he growled at an old lady who called him cute.  I thought it was a great response.  So I wrote this song for him and for all the other cute kids that grown ups won't leave alone.


Everybody Wants to Pinch My Cheeks!

Guitar chords: E-A-B

They don’t ask; no they don’t bother.

They don’t ask my mother, don’t ask my father.

They sneak up on me those dirty creeps.

Cause everybody wants to pinch my cheeks! (4x)

They stick their fingers in my hair.

I tell ‘em no, but they don’t care.

They make cuddly noises like “squeak, squeak squeak,”

Cause everybody wants to pinch my cheeks! (8x)

Aunts and uncles, neighbors, cousins,

They attack me by the dozens.

I thing they’re a bunch of freaks!

Cause everybody wants to pinch my cheeks! (8x)
