The Lyrics

We know that Clementine's father was a miner, 49er, but we don't know the occupation of her suitor. For this song I assumed that he was also a miner living in that cavern in a canyon with Clem and her dad. Paste this into your browser for a clip of the original song by Boston.
Oh my darling Clementine
You're lost and gone away
Ruby lips submerged beneath the sea
Fell into the foaming brine
The ducklings ran away
But baby sister's here to comfort me

You looked up at me
A 49er fancy free
Now lost... forever thee

Oh my darling Clementine
Light like a fairy, shoes that were number nine
But now your baby sister's here for me
Think I'll pull through eventually
My darling Clementine

Alas I was no swimmer
Did not jump in the water
Dreadful sorry, hung my head and cried
Cried a little longer
And held your sister tighter
Devotion, was it misapplied?

She looks up at me
And somewhere in my eyes she sees
A mi... ner fancy free

Oh my darling Clementine
I excavated mines night and day for you
But now your baby sister's here for me
Think I'll pull through eventually
My darling Clementine

Hey, how many people out there do you think know all the verses to "Clementine" AND have listened to ANY non-classic-rock-radio-staple Boston album cuts within the past 20 years? That's right, one person... you. It doesn't matter if this is one of the best parodies you have done. Nobody cares. Boston went out of fashion 25 years ago, and never came back. "Clementine" is just annoying . Now get busy and write some stuff people can relate to.
