Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Another in my "Dave Crosby Can't Cook" series, this time using Buffalo Springfield songs. The theme explores what MIGHT have happened had David Crosby done the food preparation for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young way back in those wild & wooly days...However, the predominant story in this piece also weaves in my "CSN: TheThumb Album" Parody Project and also builds on my "4+20 Blackbirds Baked In This Here Pie" parody of "4+20" from the Deja Vu album...confused enough? Uh...OK...the whole thing also references Little Jack Horner sticking his thumb in a pie, too. Anyway...I think it's funny by itself, too...
[ominous guitar intro]

My thumb got bit in a pie
Listen up and I'll tell you why
Let Dave Crosby cook for us guys
Was a huge mistake, was not wise

'Cause my thumb got bit
in Crosby's pie
Cooked while blackbirds still alive

Shoulda known something's wrong
But that night
I really was stoned
Young said, "Hey, Steve try some pie"
So I stuck my thumb in; it got bit
and I whined

I said
Yeah, I said "Ow"
I got bit and then I howled

Left me squealing like a beast
I said "OW, Damn; those birds aren't deceased"
Bit my thumb
and then caused me to whine
Crosby just stood there and he smiled

He said
"Hey, Steve
Dude, stay alert
those birds bite and it sure hurts"

That annoyed me, yeah, I freaked
I was so riled up, man, I shrieked
"What the f*ck is with you now, Dave?"
Then Crosby smiled
said, "Man, you should chill out", I raved

"This better stop
stop this now"
Dave replied
"Don't have a cow"

Blew my top
yelled real loud
"Crosby, your cooking's really foul

It's glop
you can't hold it down
taste it
I guarantee you'll frown

[out to fade]
toss it out
throw it out..."

Reminds me of our "gig" at Espresso Garden. How about a parody of "Hot Cross Buns": "Hot Cros' Buns"?

alvin, yeah -- that really bites...JB - That's right, I did my "4+20 Blackbirds..." that night with Rick accompanying me...that was really a gas...had the audience going "Ow, ow-ow, ow-ow..." during the guitar instrumental break...and you had those "rubber room" parodies with a couple of 'Kinks' songs as I recall. It doesn't look like I'm going to able to make it up North this Summer, so I guess I won't being doing an "Espresso" gig..."Hot Cross Buns"...geez, I don't even know how that goes...other than that it's a great ~ ~ ~

Paul, "Hot cross buns" is a simple song for teaching basic notes for learning various instruments. The song goes: "Hot cross buns, Hot cross buns, one a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns, If you have no daughters, give them to your sons, one a penny, two a penny, Hot Cross Buns"

JB - Ah...that's where I've heard it know, I think I was about 6 or maybe 7 when my parents had me take piano didn't last...the teacher was this batty old "cat" lady...she had HUNDRED'S of them at her house...fortunately the lessons were at OUR house...but even though she was pretty nice she was really weird...anyway, one year or less of piano lessons...too bad, I wish that I had learned an instrument. Anyway, back to "Hot Cross Buns" - I'm pretty sure I had to play that as one of my first wonder I couldn't remember it...Thanks & lol ~ ~ ~
