The Lyrics

A humorous jab at what I'm like on many a Friday or Saturday night. ;-)
Now I don't hardly know why
Why I think I can talk like,
Cuss like a trucker

Ah, well, when I’m drinkin’ the Coors beer
And I’ve got wound so tight here,
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker

Yeah, my mind’s such a sick thing
I wanna be a true strange thing
What a beautiful feeling
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker

(Instrumental interlude, fade into lyrics, warbling tone to words)

Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker
Drink like a sailor, cuss like a trucker
(Fade to end)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Now I KNOW we have to get together sometime! I'll even drive. Great work, andria. ;D

Thanks, OMR. Are you sure you really want to be around someone who cusses as much as the movies "Scarface" and "South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut" played back to back, and can barely function, when drunk? You'd probably end up taking me to the emergency room. ;-)

I'll bet you use 555 words you can't say on T.V.!!! Great job!

I just returned from the Port of Oakland. . .truckers galore. Nice improvement on the OS.

Now, you *know* this is my kind of parody! ;)

This is such a f@!#ing hilarious parody!! I enjoyed it lots! Kind of reminds me of this Bill Murray movie "What About Bob?" where he discusses Tourette's Syndrome with his psychologist who's annoyed by him. Great work and 5's! You also have a wonderful V-Day!
Andria - February 12, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks, John... never been there, but I can imagine, thanks Fiddlegirl, agreed, and thanks Christie... "What About Bob?" was a good one, and I figured I'd get a reference to Tourette's here or there.

Yeah, cool parody.
Andria - February 12, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks, Phil. Yeah, it is pretty cool. I've just started on my third gin-and-tonic of the night, and haven't started cussing or getting severely drunk yet.

Eve better than the lyrics themselves was the overall stab at one of the stupidest OS ever. Those guys were drunk -- or worse -- when they did that one. Good rip on them. Have another, and enjoy!
Andria - February 15, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks, TT. Definitely a stupid OS, and one that makes no sense. It's right up there with "MacArthur Park" by Richard Harris and "Blue (Da Ba De)" by Eiffel 65, neither of which made any sense to me.
Tommy Turtle - February 17, 2010 - Report this comment
Actually, I think I *did* understand MacPark (probably the only one who did) -- gave the explanation to a college buddy, who used it for a term paper and got an "A". Still sux, though :) Won't bore you with the details unless asked. ;)
Andria - February 17, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks for the comment about MacArthur Park, TT, and the closest to an explanation I could ever come up with was some sort of wedding or party gone wrong. And yes, the song still sucks.
TT - February 18, 2010 - Report this comment
Ever heard the expression, "A bun (or cake) in the oven", to mean a girl is pregnant? Or the old saying that a bride whose cakes fall can't have children? ... and in Freudian psychology, dreams about cakes and such are representative of pregnancy.

"Someone left the cake out in the rain" (MISCARRIAGE -- which makes "sweet green icing flowing down" rather gross)

"I don't think that I can take it
'"Cause it took so long to bake it "

Their long relationship and the long months of pregnancy....

"And I'll never have that recipe again"
= she died in the miscarriage. He'll never have another chance to have a child with her (have that recipe, he and her).

Then he goes on about how there will be others, etc. but after all the loves of his life....

< "You'll still be the one" -- "I'll be thinking of you -- and wondering: Why?"

IOW, why did this tragedy have to happen?

The only possible connection to the park in Los Angeles is that that's where they used to spend a lot of time together; hence, the title. But it *still* sucks!

Good to see you entering SOTM but something about this song failed to impress. Sorry, I liked it for what it was but not really a SOTM contender.
Mark Scotti - March 10, 2010 - Report this comment
SOTM Just as funny the second time around, and I'm not B#llsh@ting!
Peter Andersson - March 21, 2010 - Report this comment
In the 80s or early 90s there was a group (I think it was called Monkey Mafia, not really sure, it was an acquaintance through a short time girlfriend thingy that I came to hear them at all) who did awesome remix versions of this song and As Long As I Can See The Light, both with thunderous, groovy baselines. Don't remember if that version would have given you more to work with than the original, maybe, maybe not, but this was not enough to tickle my liver and buzz my brain.

Good work. I found myself cussing when the line break didn't work for some reason...

SOTM - I think this is the anthem of the entire southeast right now.
bobpiecheese - March 31, 2010 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Not one of your best, but I'm sure that that's the length of the OS working against you. Valiant effort at trying to do something with what little you had, but...yeah.
Below Average Dave - March 31, 2010 - Report this comment
Like virtually every single parody I've read of this song--it lacks the development needed to knock it out the ballpark. I don't care for TOS, but more importantly, there just isn't anything to work with. Hope you stick around in SOTM. . .
