Leave it Up To You

November 5, 2017

Ever wondered what it would sound like if Danny Hauger music studios went hip-hop for a day? Probably not, but like any plot of The Simpsons - it happened! Enjoy this fun and uplifting R&B track with real guitar and synthetic instruments belended. I laid the bass and guitar and then had fun improvising lyrics over the top.

Leave it Up to You Lyrics by Danny Hauger


Excitement in life seems to transpire in moments.

Like memories stored in basic components

Like your first great book or being up on stage.

There are favorites you think of on your favorite pages.


And on those pages are your long lost loves.

If you had handled them better - if you’d have worn white gloves.

Or maybe if you had been more patient in the moment.

Maybe pause your video games, or just postponed them.


Nah, if you had it right then it would have messed up.

There are some people who are just incompatible.

And don’t focus on the past that you can’t change,

Re-focus now your goals are at hand.

And don’t let retractors tell you that you can’t

You can do whatever you want man.


I’ll leave it up to you,

Show what you can do.
Can you rise up now? To the challenge

Can you give it all?

To the final fall.

With the penthouse view, in your vantage.


I’m the type of guy who would never let you go,

Cause I never played the games, showed you straight to my soul.

Every time you looked around you always tried to find,

The perfect Joe Chin to take you limousine ridin’

Who would take you to town and buy the finest drinks,

And adorn your body with leather and diamond rings.

But I’m the type of guy who likes to kick back at home,

But on the upside you know I’d never leave you alone.

And while you’re waiting for his call when he’s out with other girls,

You could have been home jammin’ with me, SEGA, and Toe Jam n’ Earl.

You might have been bored, but we were always together.
We had someone to share life in every weather.

But that kind of love gets taken for granted

And you delete all the memories that I implanted.

I’ll leave it up to you,

Show what you can do.
Can you rise up now? To the challenge

Can you give it all?

When the mic is yours, and the stage is live.
