The Lyrics

I attempted to parody the entire musical "Jesus Christ, Superstar". I have gotten halfway through, eleven songs worth. My intent is not so much humor, but to incorporate as much as I could a history of the Beatles, through the eyes of a young fan. I have listed the songs this way so they will appear in order on my list. Here's song one and two today.
JC SUPERSTAR PARODY-SONG #1

BEATLES ON HIS MIND (Heaven On Their Minds)

JESSE'S DAD:

My son is thirteen now
It's not going well, for I fear he's destroying his ears
Got a record fro-om this new British band
And the noise is destroying my boy

Beatles!
This music that they bring
I just don't understand
That awful song they sing
"I Want to Hold Your Hand"
The music that I love
Will soon be out of date
And what's more my dear boy has said
"Dad you can't relate"

Listen Jesse, I don't like what I hear
So I must make one simple thing clear
And remember- I've been your doting Dad all along
It's just one big noisy band
They're from some other foreign land
And they won't be popular for long

I remember when rock music began
Started with Haley, then along came a man
Name was Elvis-I kind of liked the way he smirked and sang
But now these new guys with the hair
I just don't see the talent there
I can't figure why you liked this gang

Jesse Christ, your fav'rite fools
Should have stayed in Liverpool
Like the other peasantry- drinking their tea
Fish and chips and spotted dick
Speaking with a brogue so thick
Stayed in their own country there, stayed over there!

Listen Jesse, do you care about us?
And remember we don't want any fuss
We are petrified-have you forgotten how uptight we are?
I don't like this teenage crowd
For they are very much too loud
I don't care much for that Ringo Starr

Listen Jesse, to recordings I like
I've got Bing and Sinatra and Spike
And it's sad to see my little boy drifting away from me...
All this mania's unkind
Too much Beatles on their minds
What is happening in our country?
In our big country...
This will continue tomorrow

The official title of this is "Jesse Krist, Beatle Fan" I forgot to explain, and it went through many changes, so there may be some typos. I've been very distracted lately.

Masterpiece.

Nice walk down memory lane. Rather poignant too.

Hey, Rick, DKTOS, but this is well-written and funny ("fish and chips and spotted dick" Whut be THAT??), and your pacing is always on. I see that some bonehead dropped 1s, so here's some 5s for balance. Can't believe the variety of tunes you cover!

This has the potential to be something ROTFLYAO-funny AND thought-provoking...put a little more humor in it. The name could be Jesse Criss (after all, that was pseudonymous surname of the original drummer from KISS)...and maybe you can make the character a female...or not specify a gender at all, to make her/him a unisexual symbol of the Beatles generation (whoa! heavy duty thinking here)! You got a great start, I'm very intrigued to see where you go with this, because i love JCS! Good luck! 545

I'm taking you up on the suggestion of the name, Jesse Criss it is. Or maybe Jessy Criss. I'm so confused. But he's still gonna be a boy. I'm not that confused.

RAD: I really really regret that I don't know JC Superstar AT ALL, because your operetta seems tailor-made for Fab Fanboys like me. I hereby commit to track down the album (which version is best?), familiarize myself with it, and return.

1970's original album is amazing. Ian Gillian, Murray Head, Yvonne Elliman. Huge production, early moog synth.
