Georgia Rae Family Band. – Now, before I could
write about life or love I wrote about animals ’cause that’s the only
thing I knew about. But hey I know about giraffes,
hey I know about coyotes. I’ll sing about that. So here is the song
about the coyote that came across my yard
after I pulled an all-nighter. It was like six or
seven in the morning and this coyote
runs across my yard and I’m thinkin’ “That
coyote is an insomniac.” After I also had
not slept all night and I probably should’ve slept but instead I wrote the
song “Insomniac Coyote”. Here we go. (mellow bluegrass music) ♪ Insomniac Coyote lie
low, this foggy morning ♪ ♪ Solitaire and lonely,
booking ‘cross the prairie ♪ ♪ Searching for a refuge,
someplace that’s far away ♪ ♪ Restless, uneasy,
Insomniac Coyote ♪ ♪ Footsteps close behind
you, they’re gonna find you ♪ ♪ Don’t shut your eyes just yet,
I swear you wont regret it ♪ ♪ Erase from your memory
the pack you left behind ♪ ♪ Just take it easy
Insomniac Coyote ♪ ♪ Ooo ♪ ♪ Ooo ♪ ♪ Ooo ♪ ♪ Ooo ♪ ♪ Insomniac Coyote ♪ ♪ They pushed you
out into the cold ♪ ♪ And now you’re on your own ♪ ♪ Once filled with

and applauding) – Oh thank you. This next tune is a brand new
tune that’s called “Terrimoo” and terrimoo is a
made up word because my boyfriend
mis-heard the lyrics, I was singing terrible
mood and he heard terrimoo and he’s like “Man Georgia, “I really like that
new song Terrimoo.” and I’m like I have no idea
what you’re talking about but then I thought
he explained the song and I was like, oh, that’s
actually a pretty cool word so I might as well make
up a meaning for that and then I’ll call
that song “Terrimoo”. So, terrimoo, it’s
like a feeling. When you feel terrimoo, it
means that you’re in a bad mood and the only thing
that can fix it is a good jam with your friends or a nice fresh cup of coffee. So, I hope your
feeling of terrimoo goes away after this song. (mellow bluegrass music) ♪ I feel the newest groove,
it’s brewin’ inside me ♪ ♪ My precious cup of joy
poured out before me ♪ ♪ Crying for laughter
