The Lyrics

I've got stories...
Weddings

Each weekend with a band to weddings… is where I go go go
I like to play and I need the pay…you know know know
Sure, we’re kinda old…and kinda fat, so we’ve been told
It’s not about our “art” at weddings… it’s for the dough dough dough

I'd rather play a song that’s cool
Like Steely Dan’s “My Old School”
But I’ve gotta
I hafta’ keep ‘em dancing
So, I play “Feelings”…feeling like a fool

Lawrence Welk could well be our clone
AC/DC, but played on a trombone

Our “front-man’s” singing at the wedding… it’s his big show show show
It sounds like crap when he tries to rap screaming “YO YO YO”
It’s an awful thing… a grandpa with a grill and bling
Tryin’ to break-dance at the wedding… and moving slow slow slow

The bass says “what is the friggin’ key ?”
I say “Hey stupid…it’s G”
I wanna, I'm gonna go and punch him
It is just beyond belief to me
We’ve played (this I’m now telling you)
“Brown Eyed Girl” since it was brand-new

It’s toast-time here now at the wedding…the crowd yells Joe Joe Joe
Best-man is drunk… he’s a little punk…snorts blow blow blow
He thinks it is sweet…to mention that the groom did meet
Some chick the night before the wedding…she was a hoe hoe hoe

I know some would think of telling me
I have no credibility
But I’ve got a happy spouse
The Macarena paid for my house

And I’m looking fine
My tux was just freshly shined

Bridezilla now is at the wedding… the guests say “Whoa Whoa Whoa”
She’s waiting there sitting on a chair…oh no no no
Groom gets on one knee…to place the garter and we see
She’s facing toward us at her wedding…she’s going Com-man-do

Expert songwriting, making every stanza a new verse! Funny stuff...how about an encore of "Shout (Parts 1 &2)" ? :)
McKludge - February 13, 2008 - Report this comment
Yeah, my band played a wedding once. {emphatically points finger in the air} Once. But if you're good, you can make big bucks doing weddings. $555 per hour.

I ought to whack you with ones, IB, for that trombone crack, but since my forays into musicianship began as a tromonist in grade _5_ grade _5_ decades ago and _5_ years later broadened to compass brasses, generally (all true), I guess I must award you 555 after all. :-)

A great rewrite of Britains fave Grammy winning junkie's signature song. A real insight into the worst job a muso could have...555

Agri-thanks so much...Shout gives me a headache just thinking about it. McKludge-I'd need more than 200 hands to hold-up enough fingers. Stan-thanks...(Q) What's the definition of an optimist ? (A) A trombone player with a beeper. alvin...thanks...creepy ain't it ? Kristof -thanks...it's not so bad if you know the territory. The first time I ever noticed this song was at the Grammies...I think she's kinda funky/cool. I just hope she lives to be 30. AFW thanks much. John-I can see you know about "knowing the territory"

P.S. Sometimes I'm kinda dim. Would somebody please tell me how to get line breaks in there comments ? Thanks. IB
Kristof Robertson - February 14, 2008 - Report this comment
To get page breaks, IB, at the end of your sentence insert < plus BR plus >, like



this ;-) the more you add, the bigger the break

I think Kristof's description was a tad misleading. To get a line break, type [BR], but replace the "[" with a "". Don't use "plus"
Same thing happened to me a few months back. The last comment on about 6 of my parodies is "Test Test Test" as I was trying to make the line break work.

Thanks for attempting to help me

I finally did a right-click/view source, and when I saw what you were trying to tell me I had a Homer Simpson moment...DOH !

And here I was thinking that playing there was'nt about making up big bucks doing weddings but making out/doing bridesmaids...
Matthias - March 18, 2008 - Report this comment
Good choice of original song for this topic. You say you want to play songs that a hard, and you're stuck playing songs that are boring and slow. I wonder what's Amy's shtick? She's like playing a song style that you could have heard in the early 60's while everybody else is playing modern stuff. Christina did swing with "Candyman" which was like 40's.... What's with these people and playing really ancient music? And when is Green Day going to do some old-skool Doo-Wap? I loved the line: "a grandpa with a grill and bling".

(SOTM-FEB08) Wedding bands are worse than elevator music. This is really funny IB. And there is always a "hoe" at a wedding - why is that?
Michael E Cormier - March 27, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) The "Bridezilla", also known as 'The Queen B" (Use your imagination on that one) is a fierce creature that preys on her unsuspecting relatives and friends by insisting that they pick a ridiculously high priced gift from the "Neiman Marcus" catalog instead of accepting the notion that she just might need a toaster after the honeymoon. Known to be very moody and unable to compromise on her big day, any attempt to interfere with her tantrums may be dangerous to your health. It is rumored that many Bridezillas started off as spoiled brats who had Sweet Sixteen parties that cost more than most people earn in a year, earning those who turn 16 in this fashion the nickname "Little B" until they earn their Queen status. :-) Nice Parody 5s

(SOTM) It seems every normal day-to-day situation can be turned amusing in the hands of a talented parodist. And here, we have a really talented parodist. Absolutely brilliant, man.
Red Ant - March 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Very funny IB, and thank you for making an insufferable song tolerable. "The Macarena paid for my house": NOOOOOOO!! Say it isn't so!

Like "Lyric Man", I'd love to hear this one recorded: extra kudos if you sound nothing like Amy Crackhouse.

(SOTM) Horrible OS, decent parody. Coincidentally the security code for this was "PAP", which is what I'd describe the OS as.

(SOTM) This OS kinda sux. . .very nice parody, I--unlike Jack--DO NOT want to hear this song recorded though. "The bass says “what is the friggin’ key ?” I say “Hey stupid…it’s G”" Nice. . .

I agree with the me from March 18th of 2008 (Hi! March 18th of 2008 Me!!!! Greetings from March 12th 2009!) I'm in a weird mood today as you can tell. ANNOYING AS HELL original song (I didn't like 60's music in the 60's why the heck would I like it now) But a great idea and very funny lines like the "a grandpa with a grill and bling" and the line to follow it "I say “Hey stupid…it’s G” purely silly stuff here.

AGES...this was funny, IB...I don't know that I liked it as much as some of your other stuff for this contest, but it was a nice piece. The comment section is almost as entertaining...so glad you learned to line break. =)

I have to say, though, that Matty's comments are disturbing to me. Complaining about people doing music in ancient styles...hmmm. Good is good, right? No matter when it was released? And who doesn't like music from the 60s?? Oh. My. GOSH. The 60s and the 70s are my favorites!! ; )

Okay...rant over...and kudos for you, IB...this did make me smile.
Matthias - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
I liked the 70's because that's when a bunch of the cool new rock bands came out, but the 60's were always boring to me.

(Ages) Cute and funny! I think the pacing was a little rough, and I think you added a couple of lines! Before I rate you either 4-5-5 or 5-5-5, I'll give it another listen, and then I'll decide! BTW, as an amateur singer who always dreamed of being in a band, I love the topic!
Melanie Lee - March 25, 2009 - Report this comment
4-5-5 it is. You did add a couple of lines in the latter part of the song--funny lines, though! (about the hoe hoe hoe)
