Story

This song is brand new! 

Here's a link to a video performance of it:  More and More of Less and Less

This is a companion piece to "Teeny Tiny House."  How did I get my stuff to all fit in a teeny tiny house?  By continuing to follow the more and more of less and less philosophy!

Lyrics

More and More of Less and Less  

Copyright 2013 Dana Clark

Yes--these lyrics ARE a bit goofy, but they express one of my most deeply held beliefs.

No other song I've ever written has had so many words from the same page of the rhyming dictionary!

VERSE: Do we own our stuff or does the stuff we own own us? How can we get ahead if we can never get enough? They say less is more and that the simple life is best That's more or less why I want more and more of less and less CHORUS: Give me more and more of less and less More and more of less and less More time to play less bills to pay Give me more and more of less and less VERSE: We waste time getting things we need to get to save us time We spend a dollar driving store to store to save a dime It's lots of work to search out labor saving tools to buy To pay for more vacation we must work more overtime! CHORUS: Give me more and more of less and less More and more of less and less Less anxiety and stress Give me more and more of less and less VERSE: Winners who win more and more think they have found success But unless they lose excess they"ll soon possess a mess To maximize their happiness and minimize distress They can downsize and de-clutter to end up with less and less BRIDGE: Once we simplify our lives, we'll find it's not a chore We'll keep wanting less and less and we'll want it more and more! We'll increase what we love best when we're decreasing all the rest So impressed, we'll request, "Give me more of less!" CHORUS: Give me more and more of less and less More and more of less and less Help me put it to the test Give me more and more of less and less Give me more and more of less and less More and more of less and less Come on put it to the test Give me more and more of less and less END: More and more (echo: More and more!) Of less and less (Yes, yes!) Repeat as tag More and more (echo: Less of more) Of less and less (More of less!) Repeat as tag More or less! Less and less! Yes! Yes!
