How To Tie Your Shoes

This song, written for the August, 2006, contest, is a statement on our culture's obsession with teaching everything didactically, as a set of instructions, instead of teaching by showing or doing (which is how all of us learned to tie our shoes). It attempts to show the frustration on the part of the instructor when the pupil can't follow the confusing instructions (though they are technically accurate) and the defiant resignation of the student (mad props to 'Xander for the collab!), in both asserting and conceding that he'll never tie his shoes, provided with that method of instruction.

Oh, yeah; it's pretty funny, too. Oh, and I was able to exorcise some of my childhood's own personal demons with this one. All in all, not bad for a day's work.
