Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Richard Gere goes to Tibet,
To live somewhere with no toilet,
For he is seeking Nirvana,
Just like Dalai Lama.

Joni Mitchell wrote this song,
For Cosmic Consciousness she longs,
Gotta love that Canadian,
Hippie that I am.

(Chorus)
And I've tried meditating, dude,
(But when I) close my eyes (I just see) women nude,
To hot dog vendors I'm asking,
To make me one with eeee-verything.

Tina Turner's Buddhist too,
And Bruce Lee with all his Kung Fu,
Harrison Ford's Karma's cleansed,
Like Laurie Anderson's.

Chicago Bulls coach Phil Jackson,
Teaches his team meditation,
They must be doing something right,
The NBA titles prove.

(Chorus)
And I've tried meditating, dude,
(But when I) close my eyes (I just see) women nude,
To hot dog vendors I'm asking,
To make me one with eeee-verything.

Patrick Duffy sits Lotus,
Position since he left Dallas
And John Astin is Buddhist too,
With those Gomez Yoga moves,

(Chorus)
For now I impatiently wait,
'Til I achieve the trance-like state,
To hot dog vendors I'm asking,
To make me one with eeee-verything.

Interesting, nice work.

Hope you can take a suggestion. I just did this song, and I worked hard to get the initial rhyme in each first line. "Moons and Junes" etc. It's what made it challenging and fun. My pacing in not always spot on, but if you can't come close, or even vaguely approximate the title, maybe it's time to pick another song.
