The Lyrics

Based off a true story. I got tickets to see Jonathan Coulton next month and I'm so happy.
Last week I got e-mail from JoCo
It said the future’s great sent personally
Turns out he’s playing close to where I live
Well not really close but I’ll drive that far
I can’t go alone cause my wife said no
But she told me to go with some guys that I know
Gotta get ready for a road trip and I can’t hardly sleep
Even though it’s only August and he plays in April

Cause I’m gonna see Jon Coulton soon
I can’t wait to see him play
Cause he makes the things that are weird and strange seem normal and mundane
Gonna see Jon Coulton soon
And Paul and Storm will be there
And when my life is boring, I can close my eyes and he’s already here

I wonder if he’ll play Still Alive
Singing distorted in that robotic voice
I plan on singing with him quite loudly
I hope other patrons won’t mind if I’m off
Blurting out some of the lyrics wrong
I hope that my memory doesn’t fail
I will do my best to learn them
And get training vocally
I just hope that I can get it and he’ll soon tour with me


Cause I’m gonna see Jon Coulton soon
I can’t wait to see him play
Cause he makes the things that are weird and strange seem normal and mundane
Gonna see Jon Coulton soon
And Paul and Storm will be there
And when my life is boring, I can close my eyes and he’s already

Here at home she wonders
Why I grow my beard and never shave
And the clothes and glasses will make me whole
I won’t be returning home
I’ll make Coulton’s life my own

I’ll see him standing by the backstage door
He’ll look at me and greet me with a hello
I’ll call my sidekicks to drive the car around
I’ll say I’m sorry and stuff him in the trunk
Real quickly
Crowds eye me suspiciously
Hearing the songs not in JoCo’s own voice
But they listen and sing along
And clap and change their minds
When this bad impersonator gives them the time of their lives

Well, I’m gonna be Jon Coulton soon
And I won’t always be this way
When I take his place up on the stage and pull in JoCo pay
I’m gonna be Jon Coulton soon
And Paul and Storm will be there
Cause when I am successful I’ll remember him and wish that he was here.
Ok, the first verse is based off a true story. The next two verses... ummm... I deny everything.

SOTM: Not a JoCo fan...I don't know why. But I think you did a good job here anyway.

Not too sure who exactly John Coulton is.... So this entire parody was kinda lost on me. Sorry buddy.

(SOTM) Matthias: Jonathan Coulton is a popular comedy musician, mainly for 'Still Alive' from Portal and his folk-rock cover of 'Baby Got Back'. Look his stuff up, you won't regret it. Anyways, cool parody, a little creepy, but who cares? 555!

Somehow this parody felt like a Simpsons episode, I'm not sure why, you're not looking like Homer too, are you?

SOTM...this got funnier as it went along...I'm glad the second half of the parody isn't entirely true...or we'd all be accessories...; )

I like Jon Coulton, though I can't say I'm as familiar with him as you are. The pacing seemed tight, but the rhyming seemed a tad off, but fun idea to parody a comedian, not many can do it, and it's always nice to see someone try something new.

This was a triumph. 555
