Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Here's another "Cream" song parody. Imagine living in a downstairs apartment and discovering your upstairs neighbor is a leaden-handed, tin-ear drummer.
It's getting real loud
The drummer upstairs is wired
I'll call the cops, soon they'll come
Can't get to sleep; I'm so tired
He started to play at noon
I think he should find another calling

He's been playing too long
My frustration's growing
Told that drummer "that's enough"

He lives right above
Each night he plays until two
Now I really am bugged
All that pounding is really screwed
All day he's been drumming now
All day he plays; now my hearing's f*cked up

He's been playing so long
It is so annoying
Can't he tell when it's too much?

I think he's on drugs
Some quiet is overdue
Yes, he must be on drugs
Plays so awful it must be true
All day with that pounding sound
It sounds so bad 'cause his technique does suck

Goes on playing too long
He keeps playing too long
And he plays the same song
Aggravates me knowing
Think I'll have to kick his butt

This is my favorite Cream original, and the parody was great too...

Paul Robinson - May 03, 2004 - Report this comment
Alvin - Thanks! condolenses on THAT "upstairs idiots" situation. Say, speaking of sounds and noises I get the impression you might still have a functioning Turntable and such. I have a fairly good number of Vinyl LP's that I believe are in playable condition that I will probably never play again that could use a good home. I don't want any money for them, I just hate the idea of them either sitting here and for what I would get for them at a used record store I would rather give them to someone who might give them some use and enjoy them. Let me know if you are interested. We don't live that far apart and I've got wheels.

My wife once lived next door to a band that would play Boston's "Peace Of Mind" over and over and over again.... It was all they ever played.... I wrote a parody about it, too! This is great, Paul.

Rick D & Johnny D - Thanks! glad you liked it.

Johnny D - I was just over here copying the address of this one and re-read your July 31 comment - somehow I missed the irony of having to listen to that band play "Peace Of Mind" over and over and over and over "infinaseum"...well gotta start getting my stuff together for my trip up North later this week...I'll hunt down that parody of yours if I get back here later on tonight.

(ABC 'U') I tried to listen to an MP3 of this but some guy upstairs was banging so hard on a set of drums that I couldn't hear my MP3.

Just a minute... What's that you say? You'll have to speak up I have bananas in my ears. Nice parody Paul.

Very nice. I've certainly had nights like that, generally from the dorm across from mine. But *I* have earplugs :-). Anyway, 5'd.
Paul Robinson - November 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, "(ABC)". ?? Is that you, Nem?...the dorm reference tells me it's probably not Guy and as I recall from other comment threads you are around college age.

Sounds like it's time to pull out a couple of sticks and beat the drummer. Creamy goodness.

The good news is this is a very good parody. The bad news is I once had this very problem. But that's not why the guy was evicted.

Spaff & Michael P. - Thanks! I've been busy at work and with family stuff and haven't been around lately, didn't even know this contest was happening!

(SOTMfinals) I'm surprised you didn't go further and write about how you kicked his butt, although it's still well done, Phil.

Thanks, Scathe...
