The Lyrics

Honestly, I have no idea what inspired this.
We're out on your lawn,
When lights blind our bloodshot eyes.
Your old man loads up his gun,
To give me his dawn surprise.
He's howling beneath the moon.
I'm prayin' to God my feets don't fail me.

(Pow-pa-Pow!) I've been shaking so long.
(Boom-da-Boom!!) Whew, he ran right past me!
(Bang-ba-Bang!!!) I'm so gun-shy in your shru-u-uuu-u-ubs.

(Don't know why, but Eric Clapton's out on the lawn playing a blistering guitar solo. Hope it distracts the old man, or I'm gonna get Cream'd)

I'm oozing with love.
The love's dripping on my shoes.
Yes, I guess that IS blood.
You'll be mourning a day or two.
Just stay with me darling now,
And pray for me 'til I give the ghost up.

(Biff-Bang-Pow!) Shotgun barrel so long.
(Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow!!) Blew a hole right through me!
(Bang-a-Gong!!!) I'll take last rites in your shru-u-uuu-u-ubs.

(Now KC & The Sunshine Band are out on the lawn playing Disco . . . Oh, this MUST be the end . . . and I'm headin' in the wrong direction!)

Now, I'm saying, "So long".
I've been waiting so long.
Been a good boy too long,
To head where I'm going.
Love lies bleeding in your shru-u-u-u-uuu-u-u-u-ubs..
(Sure it's a knockoff of an Elton John line, but somehow it seemed fitting)

Wow, weird but I liked it.

Yeah Guy, I have to agree with you - about it being weird. I was trying to capture the feel of a lot of Cream's lyrical content. If you remember the Disraeli Gears album (which Sunshine Of Your Love was from), it was full of very spacey, surreal imagery. Gee, I wonder why.

Good job.

Yet another case where I am compelled to honor a parody with a vote of 555 simply for the sheer ingeniously bizarre weirdness of it all.

Direct Hit here David. Ahhh, but I KNOW where the inspiration came from...that Time-Warp thing from yesterday...Remember? It blew Mick & Keith back to that Gin Joint in Casablanca singing "I'll Never Be Your Beast of Burden"...Now today it's Clapton on the front lawn singing a parody of "White Room" except it goes "Ka-BOOM" there. Seems Shure-Real to me...Tomorrow? Uhhh...Maybe Christine McView & Fleetwood Mac dropping in on the French Revolution trying to coax Marie Antoinette into singing "I'm Over My Head" as the executioner prepares the guillotine for her...

George Harrison must be the shotgun guy, since Eric Clapton is stalking and obsessing about his wife. And to top it all off; hooked on heroin Go figure.. after all that, they remained the best friends for life.
And KC & The Sunshine band... Well,
Makes perfect sense David.. your suffering from flashbacks.
; ) I think being a lover of music can conjure up all sorts of images!
