"Early Morning Brain"

The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on Dailymotion. Also, a bit of explanation -- "joe" is American slang for coffee, Timberlane is a suburb about 5 miles south of New Orleans, and Bayou Cane is a town about 30 miles southwest of New Orleans.
In my early morning brain
When I'm gettin' out of bed
And my neurons just won't start
And I'm feelin' kinda dead

Need that first cup of joe
Just to make my blood cells flow
But my early morning brain
Is still thinking slow

Hit the bar last night at nine
Drank seven and sevens 'til they closed
And I sang a song by Spaff
In the karaoke show

Now the liquor tasted good
And the women all were fast
I was hangin' with my friends
Killing brain cells glass by glass

Now it's morning, my head roars
But I've got to rise and shine
Even though each tiny sound
Sends explosions through my mind

So I stagger down the hall
Grab a shirt and a tie
Gotta get out of my home
Gotta get to work on time

So I'm heading into town
When I look down and I see
That I need to turn around
Because I've got no pants on me

I head for Timberlane
Wind up in Bayou Cane
You might think I'm M.I.A.
It's just early morning brain

You might think I'm insane
Or I'm high on cocaine
But it's something more mundane
It's my early morning brain

Another song about "moonwalking" today. I liked your reference to "Joe" as a cup of coffee. See my "The Name He Left Behind". Don't think I've seen this tune used here before.

Thanks Patrick and John. BTW, I don't know what happened to the link I put in the introductory comments, but it's not working, so here it is:

Great title sub...and once you had that..I would imagine it pretty much wrote itself...but, you still had to make it flow nicely, which you did

This was pretty great. I loved the part that goes: "You might think I'm insane Or I'm high on cocaine But it's something more mundane It's my early morning brain" I would love to hear this one recorded.

It was hard to hear Lightfoot on the video sing this with your words (he is such a mushmouth as it is), but this was pretty cool, with a nice shoutout to The Mighty Spaff.

I'm like that, need two fast in the morning and eight to ten cups over the whole day.

Thank you for NOT submitting a parody of TWOTEF. . .it was funny Rex, and the original song was somewhat tolerable. . .thank you. . .

(Artistry) My early morning brain doesn't suffer from hangovers but is still pretty useless at getting me up. One morning my brain was so out of it that I nearly took a piss in the kitchen bin. Srsly. Great parody here, Rex, absolutely top-o'-the-mornin', to misuse a stereotypical Irish phrase. 555!

Sounds like you had a night in time drink 5 gallons of water, and you won't have a hangover
