The Lyrics

Seven years ago, Jared Lerner did "Kenny G" to "Let It Be." This week, John A. Barry did "Kenny G" to "Refugee." Kenny hasn't actually been in the spotlight much lately, but the stink from his peak years is still around.
(instrumental opening)

Kenny, play
all those songs I wish would go away.
Elevators mean you're here to stay.
Oh, I believe you should not play.

Kenny G.
You're not half as bad we say you be.
You're twice so in actuality.
Oh, Bolton's tad better than thee.

Why he
had to blow
all those notes
he wouldn't say.
He played
something wrong
now I long
to throw away...

Kenny, play
instrumentals making our nerves fray
and I think they are a little gay.
Oh, I believe you should not play.

Why he
had to blow
all those notes
he wouldn't say.
He played
something wrong
now I long
to throw away...

Kenny, play
songs that send our sanity astray.
You're nearly as bad as was Ken Lay.
Oh, I beseech: Please go away.

Oy yi yi yi yi...
Oy vey!

The 'g" spot is struck again. LOL!!

Direct hit, Michael. I've actually heard a cut of him playing tenor sax, and it's not that bad. Perhaps a lot of the problem is that the soprano sax is an inherently irritating instrument to begin with (cut me some slack...I play trombone, euphonium, and tuba)! ;D
John Barry - July 26, 2010 - Report this comment
Yes!!. I have to disagree in part with OMR. The soprano in the hands of a John Coltrane or a Wayne Shorter, e.g., is a thing of beauty.
Michael Pacholek - July 27, 2010 - Report this comment
Yeah, John, but there was only one Coltrane. He was the only person who could make me listen to "My Favorite Things" unparodized and like it.

What Mike said! I exempt Coltrane, Grover Washington, even pioneer Sidney Bechet. Maybe I should have said that it takes a REAL master to play one...and most are simply not up to the job. ;D
