ComposerDad vs. Bible Audio Podcast Season Finale Pt. 1–Family Music Adventure


Hello ComposerDad fans, ComposerDad here. I’m sitting with my piano and I’m playing
for you this song. La la la la la la, it doesn’t have words
yet. Today on the podcast a brand new ComposerDad
vs. Bible episode. Pretty exciting. I don’t know if you’ve been following
along on the ComposerDad blogosphere but it’s Mountain month. We’re talking mountains all month. So, to prep with that in case Bible comes
at me with an intense challenge, I’ve been reading about mountain stuff in the Bible. Check this out. Exodus 19:18-20. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke,
because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded
long, duh duhhh, and waxed louder and louder, the Lord called Moses up to the top of the
mount; and Moses went up there. Whoah big explosion there. That’s to get you ready for the COmposerDad
vs. Bible podcast. Now I happen to know this episode has a duet. Bible Challenges composetdad to a duet. Do you know what a duet is? That’s when two people sing together. I thought we could try that now. Wherever you are. Maybe you could sing along. Here I am, I’m singing’ right now. Now it’s your turn. Now we sing together. We go Ooo, Ooo, Oooo. Yeah, that’s a duet, two people singing
together, so watch for that in the episode. Then after the episode, Grandma’s gonna
show up and we’ll unveil the new tick check song. It’s time for a tick check. Very important. If it’s Mountain Month there’s gonna be
hiking, and if there’s hiking there better be tick checks. Alright, Cue the band! ComposerDad vs. Bible BuilderBoy, SquishyBaby, and I are in the
waiting room of my primary care physician. It’s time for my annual checkup. They are running behind and I did not bring
snacks or toys. “No problem,” I say. “Kids, let’s make game out of memorizing
the order of the advertisements on the giant flat-screen monitor. We make a game. Motel ad, then there’s car dealer, followed
by lawyer, and another, lawyer, and finally, fancy restaurant. Motel ad, car dealer, yep, lawyer, lawyer,
fancy restaurant…. Motel ad, car dealer, lawyer, lawyer, fancy
restaurant Motel ad, car dealer, lawyer, lawyer, fancy
restaurant Motel ad, car dealer, lawyer, lawyer, fancy
restaurant Suddenly a man in the waiting room has a mega-sneeze! He tumbles back, right into the giant flatscreen
monitor. It starts to topple. Builder swoops in. He catches the monitor and saves the man from
peril. “Phew, that was a close one.” I’m impressed but not surprised at BuilderBoy’s
incredible rescue, but I still have some questions. How did he catch that giant monitor? Did he just transform into a forklif– Before I can figure it out. A nurse calls my name. ComposerDad! After his exam, the doctor confirms three
things: You have incredible strength. You have a humble heart. You are out of shape. Internalizing this, I take a deep breath. I look long out the window at the massive
mountain that looms over our small city. “No problem.” I say. “I shall get in shape with the help of that
massive mountain.” We leave the doctor. On the way home we pick up ProfessorMom from
the train. “How’s Class?” “My students presented scenes from Shakespeare. His words fill my heart with joy, a joy that
is made complete by spending quality time with my family.” We reconnect emotionally and I tell ProMom
of my plan to get in shape. We decide to take a family hike up the mountain. I put SquishyBaby in our trail-tested front
pack. We all put on our special order permethrin
treated hiking clothes and review our tick safety tips. “Kids, stay on the path. Stay out of the brush.” As we ascend the mountain, there’s a rustle
in the bushes. Thousands of ticks scuttle toward us but are
instantly diverted by the force of our permethrin-treated clothes. Suddenly there’s another rustle in the bushes. Thousands of Millipedes tumble toward us. “Don’t worry, kids, Millipedes are friendly. It’s millipede season. Though that is a lot of millipedes.” Guess what else we see? Bible with another intense composition challenge
for me, ComposerDad “Hello Bible, we meet again.” I say, standing tall
Hello, ComposerDad, I see you are hiking with your family. Yes, the doctor said I need to get in shape
so I’m getting help from this mountain. This reminds me. In Psalm 121 the psalmist writes, “I lift
my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from?” His help comes from the Lord. I want you to quickly set that Psalm to music,
with just a piano, and make it a duet. Goodbye. No problem, Bible, I say, but Bible was already
gone. I knew Bible wasn’t far away when all those
millipedes started tumbling toward us. That was odd. Also the ticks. Singing duets is fun, especially with ProfessorMom. But where are we going to quickly find a piano
out here in the woods? Suddenly, a huge tree falls in our path. “Phew that was a close one.” I use my mega awesome tree cutting skills
to craft a piano from the trees, incorporating metal and wire from broken down jeep that
was hiding behind the huge tree. Completing the piano, we
lift our eyes to the mountain. A duet pours forth from ProfessorMom and me. We call it, Song of Ascent. I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my
help come from? Where does my help come from? Every hill and every mountain, I look over
them all Oh, look at all the stars in all the heavens
and over all the earth Oh I know, I know, I know the one who made
it, who made it, who made it all I’ll never let your foot slip, I’ll watch
you I’ll never slumber Oh I, I will never sleep
I’ll be the shade at your right hand when the sun is beating down,
Oh I’ll be the moon, I’ll be your moon Oh, look at all the stars in all the heavens
and over all the earth Oh I know, I know, I know the one who made
it, who made it, who made it all I will watch over your coming and your going
forever I will watch over your coming and your going
forever Oo, I know what you’re going, I know what
you’re going through Oo, I’m holding, holding you Your song of ascent is rising to my ears
I hear and I know Like the water from the hills, your love is
running down I’ll keep you from all harm
Oh, look at all the stars in all the heavens and over all the earth
Oh I know, I know, I know the one who made it, who made it, who made it all I will watch over your coming and your going
forever I will watch over your coming and your going
forever Oo, I know what you’re going, I know what
you’re going through Oo, I’m holding, holding you
I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? Where does my help come from? Alright, that was okay. I like the duet–
Thanks, Grandma. Well, some of it seems like an exaggeration. The whole setup I mean with the–

climbing up the mountain. What should you do after every hike? Have ice cream? Sure, and check for ticks! Ticks, the worst. That’s right. It’s hard to remember sometimes and it’s
doesn’t seem like a lot of fun… until now! I wrote a song to help kids and families remember
to check for ticks. You ready? Ready. Cue the band! It’s time for a tick check
It’s time for a tick check Follow along while you sing this song
It’s time for a tick check Start at your feet, look between every toe
Up to the ankles, and around we go Follow me now to the back of your knees
The right one, left one, if you please Down the calves, and up to your thighs
We’re looking around with our wide eyes For a tiny little dot that could sit on a
pin Find a tick, you win! It’s time for a tick check
It’s time for a tick check Follow along while you sing this song
It’s time for a tick check Under the undies and on each hip
We double check there, then we take a trip Up to the belly button, anybody home? Just a little piece of lint talking on the
phone–Hello? Hop on over to the elbow pits
Ride to the shoulders, don’t call it quits Throw your hands up in the air
Peek under your arms, ‘cause you’re well aware It’s time for a tick check
It’s time for a tick check Follow along while you sing this song
It’s time for a tick check Hey there friend will you check my back
And my neck, and around my ears I’ll be doing fine if you look at my hair
line If you find a tick here’s what you gotta
do Grab a tick key and a tweezers, too
Carefully remove and put ‘em in a baggy Write the date, now celebrate ‘Cause you’re done with your tick check
You’re done with your tick check It’s not so long when you sing a song
You’re done with your tick check I hope that’s helpful. You can watch a video of the Tick Check Song
