The Lyrics

I lost my lover,
Wouldn't spend a fortune just for her.
She wanted my money
Just a bit too much,
So I bought a pack of cigarettes,
And a Playboy magazine,
And walked off
To look for keg of beer.

"Good riddance" I said,
As she boarded a Greyhound in Dallas,
"California's the state for gold-diggers like you!"
I lived there three years
'Fore I move here from San Jose,
I'm going to buy me a keg of beer.

Flipping off the bus,
Playing games on my cellphone,
To the man in the pinstripe suit
I said bye.
He said, "Be careful,
Don't drive after you've been drinking!"

I reached for a cigarette,
Thought there was one in my pocket,
But I smoked the last one
Ten minutes ago.
So I looked at the passers-by,
And read my magazine;
Then went to Moon's for a keg of beer.

Kathy's now gone and I'll be
By myself when I'm sleeping
But I made up my mind
And I really don't care

Watching the cars
Drive the streets of downtown,
And they've all come
To look for a keg of beer,
All come to look for a keg of beer,
All come to look for a keg of beer.
2004 Michael W. McVey

Pacing wasn't all there, but a pretty good idea.

Yes, I did struggle a bit with the pacing on that one, and it wasn't slapstick. Even I would give it 4's, which still ain't bad. When I get some time again (the next 2 weeks I'm going to be working 16-hour days), I'll try to do more Simon and Garfunkel parodies, and maybe some John Denver, Bob Dylan and Peter Paul and Mary as well....Looks like you got the joke, though: No matter what the situation, the only think he could of was beer, which is true of a lot of alcoholics. They think beer solves everything, when in fact it is only an escape (and you're talking to a man who likes his daily cup of Lindeman's shiraz).-- MM
