The Lyrics

To put my parodic slump to rest, I have decided to do a long-awaited sequel to one of my oddest mash-up parodies -- "Layla" to the tune of the annoying Outkast hit, "Hey Ya!" Andre 3000 sings about a date with Patti Boyd, who has already been married to the late George Harrison and written about by Eric Clapton.
[Andre 3000]
Yeah, this one right here goes out to all the Eric Clapton fans,
Clapton!
Clapton, Clapton, Eric Clapton, Clapton
Yeah, go like this

CHORUS:
It's late in da evening [OOOH]
"You look wonderful"
Never found what clothes she wants to wear
But I like the clothes she's wearin' now
She put on her makeup [OOOH]
"Am I beautiful?"
As she puts the makeup on her face
"Darling, you look wonderful tonight"

[Big Boi]
I love the way she brushed her long, blonde hair
We be goin' down to parties, them boys are very jealous of her
It's extremely late in the evening
She comes up to me, asks me if I'm "Feelin' Alright" and I say to her
That I feel "Ex-trem-e-ly and very wonderful tonight"
And I feel so wonderful for a reason, because "I'm seein'
Lovely light, beautiful, beautiful light in your eyes
I love you, girl and that is why I am, I really feel so wondeful"
She wants to dance with me but met George Harrison now, my best-est of friends
Dang, I never got a chance
to write a decent song-story 'bout my young lady
Grabbed my guitar and wrote this
for my girl, who married the Silent Beatle
Despite it, I show her the utmost respect, I'm a rocker
Although sometimes I will do ballads and "mellow rock", yeah

CHORUS:
It's late in da evening [OOOH]
"You look wonderful"
Never found what clothes she wants to wear
But I like the clothes she's wearin' now
She put on her makeup [OOOH]
"Am I beautiful?"
As she puts the makeup on her face
"Darling, you look wonderful tonight"

[Andre 3000]
Me and miss Patti.. got this special thing goin' on
What is what "Layla" said (Laay-laaaaaa!)
It's what I'm sayin' now (Eric Clapton!)
Someone's been knockin' on my door forever
He came to serve me some papers
And he says that he represents Mr. Clapton

Says "Our titles rhyme, now if I'm lyin -- fine!"
Yeah, "Layla," "Hey Ya" they do sound a lot alike, I guess
He and Cream, they had lots of hit songs, like the "White Room" song
First he played with the Bluesbreakers
with John Mayall, and then he riffed out in the Yardbirds
Then Jeff Beck, then Jimmy Page, broke up, Led Zeppelin, Yardbirds
Then Clapton played in Cream three long great years, then broke up
And then he and the drummer dude, Ginger Baker, reteamed
Blind Faith was a supergroup with Only One Album!
And then he did "Layla" with Derek & the Dominoes, it was so long!
Seven minutes, you see, I can't speak
I've got bad laryngitis, you see I lost my voice
Here I hope so much that you would play a solo

[Remainder of the verse is replaced by the guitar solo from "Wonderful Tonight"]

CHORUS:
It's late in da evening [OOOH]
"You look wonderful"
Never found what clothes she wants to wear
But I like the clothes she's wearin' now
She put on her makeup [OOOH]
"Am I beautiful?"
As she puts the makeup on her face
"Darling, you look wonderful tonight"

[Big Boi]
Uh, uh, yeah
Look, it's time to go home now
Sh*t, and I've got an achin' head
You see, I gave my baby girl my car keys
And now she's gonna tuck me in to bed
She will go home now, and get to bed herself
She looked wonderful tonight
Now it looks as if I shot the Sheriff
But didn't shoot the Deputy
(Unintellible)! Can't you see, it's late in the evening?
Time to go home now, that's because I've got an eachin' head, yeah yeah
And I am going to bed now, revampin' Eric Clapton songs
As I turn out the light, "Darling, you were wonderful tonight
You were wonderful tonight"

[Guitar solo from "Wonderful Tonight"]

CHORUS:
It's late in da evening [OOOH]
"You look wonderful"
Never found what clothes she wants to wear
But I like the clothes she's wearin' now
She put on her makeup [OOOH]
"Am I beautiful?"
As she puts the makeup on her face
"Darling, you look wonderful tonight"

CHORUS:
It's late in da evening [OOOH]
"You look wonderful"
Never found what clothes she wants to wear
But I like the clothes she's wearin' now
She put on her makeup [OOOH]
"Am I beautiful?"
As she puts the makeup on her face
"Darling, you look wonderful tonight"

[Guitar solo/fade out..... pretend this Mashup never happened....]
