The Lyrics

This is a parody for people that are familiar with the history of Tangerine Dream.
(Spacy, musical intro).
Mr. Bauman is sitting on the davenport, he has had too much to drink.
And, now that he's through selling condo's, all he could do is sit down and think:
"You're a great synth player there Bauman, and the fans all loved you. But since you had no training, Edgar got rid of you!"


And then there was a knock at the door, and Peter could not stand up, but when he managed to do so, he went and opened the door.
And Edgar was standing upright, though he had a very bad cough, and his hair was now all grayed-out, and appeared a little senile.

"Come back to my band, Peter Bauman! You're the best that I ever had! For our recent releases are no good, and our fans are feeling so sad."


And Bauman appeared at the studio, everything looked different to him. Bianca asked who this man is, and Peter just had to reply:

"I am the great Peter Bauman! Do not say my name in vain. I am giving your music old talent, and Jerome will feel my pain!"

(Spacy Joel-like riff).

And everyone there hugged him, and they all had to rejoice. For the band has a better future, now that its found its old voice.

"I am the great Peter Bauman! And Edgar looks different to me. And Jerome was chubby when he was a baby, but man has he really gained weight!"

(Spacey music riff, then end).
