Description

[May 24, 2016: Dedicated to our true heroes—classroom educators—and to parents around the globe!] Ion Bodi's wonderful guitar instrumental inspired me to write a set of lyrics based on his very relatable title. When I sent them to him, he asked if possibly we could make it a pop piece together. So here is its earliest incarnation. I'm battling a wonky microphone situation and an even noisier recording environment than usual, but Ion has worked some magic with his mix here. He has mentioned adding other elements to this, perhaps his own music students, whenever he can find the time. I suggest it also might make a great visual piece down the line, and maybe someone will be inspired to create a 3-minute video for it (to watch on our phones of course ;). Thanks for your time in listening!

TURN OFF YOUR PHONE
(c) lyrics 2016 Kathleen Martin
 
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Get out of the zone
It just might astound you!
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Hey, turn off your phone!
 
Turn off your phone
Soak in what surrounds you
And seek the unknown.
Find out what confounds you!
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Please, turn off your phone?
 
Life in two dimensions
Puts blinders on your vision.
Lift your eyes up from the screen.
See what a 3rd dimension can mean.
 
A slave of your own devices,
You're heading for a virtual crisis.
Break free from your pixelation
And leave behind your alien-nation.
 
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you
And see what is shown.
It just might astound you!
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Turn off your phone!
 
Yes, turn off your phone
Soak in what surrounds you
And seek the unknown.
Find out what confounds you!
Turn off your phone
Have a look around you.
Turn off your phone!
 
Forget the latest fad.
Lift your eyes up from your pad.
See what a 3rd dimension can add—AND
 
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Get out of the zone.
It just might astound you!
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Please, turn off your phone?
 
Turn off your phone
Soak in what surrounds you
And seek the unknown.
Find out what confounds you!
Turn off your phone
Take a look around you.
Hey, turn off your phone!
Please, turn off your phone
C'mon, turn off your phone!
Please, turn off your phone
Please, turn off your phone
Please, turn off your phone?
