A Strong Foundation (Athena’s Song)

Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down
Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down

Start off with a strong foundation
If you want longevity
You’ve got to have good relations
To create stability

Find yourself a good location
And plant an olive tree
Surround yourself with good vibrations
Trust and honesty

Don’t you get discouraged
It’s easier to say than do
Compromise takes courage
But love will see you through

If you provide the inspiration
It inspires unity
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

Don’t you get discouraged
It’s easier to say than do
Compromise takes courage
But love will see you through

If you provide the inspiration
It inspires unity
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

When you start off with a strong foundation
A strong foundation
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down
Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down

About Monk Turner
"This prolific/eclectic artist/producer uses a spectrum of styles, generating entire concept albums. Turner is both daring and melodically gifted..." -Music Connection Magazine "You've got to love Monk Turner for creativity and witty lyrics. He combines various music genres and creates tracks suited for any type of music listener." -FrostClick Over the past decade, Monk Turner has produced more than 20 concept albums, using a freeform collective of musicians who share his passion for creating unique, genre-defying music. His songs have been featured in movies, television programs and advertisements, and his reach continues to widen. “Seeking” from the 2008 release, Love Story currently has had more than 500,000 plays on the online radio station, Pandora. Music from Emergency Songs was featured in an international video that was created in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake in Japan. But, his most ambitious project to date has been the production of his 2012 album, Kaleidoscope, where he collaborated with more than 40 national and international artists to create an album of music and poetry based on the concept of color. Turner offers free download capabilities via the unconventional distribution platform offered by Creative Commons licenses so that the public is able to enjoy and share his music.

    This would be great with a “rap” overlay (or whatever it is called in the music business). My ears are begging to hear that. ᐧ
