Please Do Not Give That to Me: a Musical Transcription

Doc and I love making up silly songs and singing them at each other as we walk around The Mission. If you made it out to the latest 8bitSF, you got to hear Doc and me sing one of these songs for you. A song titled “Please Do Not Give That to Me,” which I have transcribed for you here:


Learn it. Know it. Live it. Then you’ll be all ready to sing along at our show for DEATH + TAXES + CHIPTUNES on April 15th.

Originally the name of the composition was going to be “Don’t Give Me Dat” which is a closer approximation of how we sing it to each other as we walk down Valencia Street. But Doc and I cracked up at how formal and official the song looked when I started transcribing it into musical notation, that we thought it would be funnier to give it a stuffier-sounding name. Hence: “Please Do Not Give That to Me.”
