If You’'ll Be The One

This is a very short (especially in the four-verse Julie-land) song. We added leg slaps, claps whatever you call them, to add to the military march beat. I participated in the slaps and got so into it that the next day the bruises started to show. I bruise like a peach and by two days after the session I looked like I was in a car accident. I actually had bruises in the shapes of fingers on my thighs.
As soon as I wrote this song I knew that it needed a kazoo solo. Jon was insulted when I told him of my plans. "“It’'s not even an instrument”, " he informed me, "“I don'’t even like the word." ” "You mean Kazoo?"” I replied. “ "You know, I bet if you ever had a boy, you would name him Kazoo.”" I was laughing by now, but Jon wasn’'t even smiling. When it came time to do the solo no one wanted to do it, so it was all mine. I had a metal kazoo that I had bought for my granddaughter for $4.00. When we started recording Mike informed me, “"It’'s the wrong kazoo. You’'re not getting enough buzz out of it.”" I’'m thinking a kazoo is a kazoo. But the next day I went to the toy store and bought a plastic one for $1.29. Let me tell you that baby could buzz. One of my favorite moments on the CD is in this song were the lead builds and builds during the bridge then crescendos right into the kazoo solo. Also, if you listen closely to the song you can hear Ed play a little Woody the Woodpecker theme.

lyrics

If You’'ll Be the One

1) If you were my sunrise, if you were my spring, if you were my ocean, I’d be your everything…

Chorus:
But who can tell, will you be there?
We could have some fun, if you’ll be the one, if you’ll be the one…

2) Will you share my stories, will you wipe my tears,
Will you laugh at my jokes for years and years and years?

Chorus:
But who can tell, will you be there?
We could have some fun, if you’ll be the one, if you’ll be the one…

Bridge: If you can, will you? If you can, will you? If you can, will you, will you, will you?

3) Can you love me as much as I love you, can you be my heartbeat, can we see this through?

Chorus:
But who can tell, will you be there?
We could have some fun, if you’ll be the one, if you’ll be the one…

Julie Clark Shubert South Carolina

If you listened to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and every rocking song you could get your hands on from 1966 to now and stirred it up with a Fender Strat and sang it from a woman's perspective, you would have Julie Clark Shubert "From the Inside Out." When Julie turned 50, her husband gave her a Fender Strat, the stars aligned and her natural gift appeared, the rest is kinda a blur. ... more
