The Lyrics

My mom took me to a Barry Manilow concert when I was five, and I've been scarred ever since. This is a song about the songs I've written.
Now it seems like forever
Since I wrote my first song
I change the words and make parodies much better
I print lyrics
And I write the songs

I write the songs of how to Talk Nerdy
I write the songs about when I've Got To Pee
I write the songs about how Grown Men Fight
I write the songs, I write the songs

Now Every Toe Has It's Corn
Will always have a place in my sole
And when I'm Drinking In The Dorm
I'll Chug again, if a Wide Mouth Can is cold

I write the songs that tell how cat poop stinks
I write the songs of beer and Buffalo Wings
I write the songs that make my parents cry
I write the songs I write the songs

Hope my music makes you laugh
And inspires you to try this craft
And I sang some karaoke you can hear
Try my Open Bar
There's always a Free place to Park
It's from me, it's for you
Don't stand there, Dust The Room
And enjoy my parodies

I write the songs of how the Wolfpack stinks
I write the songs about Bionic things
I write the songs about how mommy Dries
I write the songs, I write the songs

I find lyrics, and I write the songs

It was, of course, written, by Bruce Johnston, former and current Beach Boy.

Hi Jeff. I was thinking of mocking this piece of crap, so I thought I'd look yours up. I don't think my idea would pass the new rules. ("I Fluff the ()ongs" fill in your own letter) But in another posting, you asked how we did the "Amiright Tribute" We hava a Roland VS 1680. It's a 16 track digital recorder with inboard effects. They are very affordable these days, and it continues to amaze me how one gizmo takes the place of all the 8-track tape machines and echo boxes and guitar flangers and mixing boards etc... that I used to use. (And still have) I usually prgram drums, or write out drum parts on staff and let them play on my Roland keyboard, then play guitars, bass and whatever else I need. Mari then plays piano or flute. Some of those tracks you may have listened to on Soundclick. For the Amiright Tribute, I shortcut all that. I lined up the songs in keys we could sing, and blasted through them all in one take. We added just a bit of flute, more guitar and bass, mixed, made MP3 and had it posted the next day. If we do another (And you'll be on the next one) I'll take a bit more time, do the drums and keys, and "arrange" a bit more. Right now we just finished a little project with another Amirighter. If you're ever in the Bay area, look us up.
