I would say my music is colorful, moving, and full of emotion. I write every song with a few simple things in mind. Music is meant to bring out your emotion, supposed to move you soul, and your feet. I hope to change the world through my music and do it with love, peace, and good honest music.

Biography

"As Simple as it Gets" the title of my new album. Self produced, self taught, self distributed. I am on a journey to sell art for charity. 50% of all my profits go straight to non-profit hunger relief agencies in our community. Hunger is the leading cause of death around the world, and I want to use my talents to change that simple statistic. with love.

Lyrics

Regular World

Written By: Donnie Walden III

Somebody get me out of here now
I want to finish off the year now
No more books and no more tests,
Lets get together and lay it all to rest now.

I know we got a lot of problems
We know eventually we'll solve them,
Don't worry 'bout what you can't see,
Drop your worries and come with me.

'Cause if you got time then you'll be fine dont worry 'bout your life.
If we got something then it ain't nothing lets make the best of what's rest of this night.

Because it's Summertime, and we're feeling fine, and we've got all the time in the world.
So lets pack up our rhymes and lets go for a ride, and leave behind this Regular World.
This Regular World.

I don't know why we
can't decide can we,
Get alone tonight
make you feel alright.
Sunshine coming on,
Party all night long,
Give me all my friends,
We'll have a good time 'til the very end.
Throw your hands up, stomp your feet,
Sway your hips now, get out your seat.
You came to have a good time,
Don't you see.
Take all your problems and leave 'em with me.

'Cause if you got time then you'll be fine dont worry 'bout your life.
If we got something then it ain't nothing lets make the best of what's rest of this night.

Because it's Summertime, and we're feeling fine, and we've got all the time in the world.
So lets pack up our rhymes and lets go for a ride, and leave behind this Regular World.
This Regular World.

Time is irrelevant when you're movin' and cruisin' right through it, take your time my friend, and have a good time 'til the end.
And if you've got too much on your mind take your time and please unwind,
No use in living a life locked in time.
There's too much we can't understand like,
Why there's hatred filling up our land.
A life without love seems so absurd.
Your actions speak louder than words.

Because it's Summertime, and we're feeling fine, and we've got all the time in the world.
So lets pack up our rhymes and lets go for a ride, and leave behind this Regular World.
This Regular World.

Somebody get me out of here now
I want to finish off the year now
No more books and no more tests,
Lets get together and lay it all to rest now.

Got it Goin' On

Written By: Donnie Walden III

Too many times,
I been wakin' up alone.
Wondering no I don't want to wonder anymore when you're gonna come home.
'Cause I need you when I see you,
But you really don't care.
Since I've seen you standing there,
Wearing your green eyes,
and your long blonde hair.

Na na na na na
You got it goin' on you got it goin' on.
Na na na na na
You got it goin' on.

If I, could be good enough for you,
would you take me.
If I, could be good enough for you,
would you save me.
Don't take me for granted, lets make some love and enchant it,
We'll spend the night alone.
I want you to be the only one I see,
and the girl who's always coming home.
I know you got it all,
You got everything.
From your hips to your nose,
and your lips to your nose,
and the wonderful songs we sing.

Na na na na na
You got it goin' on you got it goin' on.
Na na na na na
You got it goin' on. you got it goin' on
Na na na na na
You got it goin' on you got it goin' on
Na na na na na
you got it goin' on

Birds and the Bees

Written By: Donnie Walden III

All of the people all of the places,
All of the people and all of their faces.
The only one on my mind is you.
Like sunshine on a rainy day,
snowfall like little flakes of winter
babe you been meltin' like the rays of a rainbow.

I been losing my head,
I been losing my mind,
Im only half a man without you girl.

We got the birds and the bees
we got the things we like to sing
people rollin' round our town
The thing we know are true like
my lovin' is for you, and the foolish things we do.

We'll take a trip together
From sunrise to sunset beaches and bad weather.
Walks through the rain like nothin' in the world really matters.
From the seas of balloons on the bedroom floor
All the crazy things that we've never done before.
The wonderful colorful world we've yet to explore.

I been losing my head,
I been losing my heart,
Im only half a man without you girl.

We got the birds and the bees
we got the things we like to sing
people rollin' round our town
The thing we know are true like
my lovin' is for you, and the foolish things we do.

I'll watch my fingertips
Roll down your shoulder.
Like raindrops and snowflakes on the windowpane.
Every time it feels the same.
I don't know why you couldn't just tell me you wanted me to stay.

We got the birds and the bees
we got the things we like to sing
people rollin' round our town
The thing we know are true like
my lovin' is for you, and the foolish things we do.
