The Lyrics

I had tried to submit this yesterday, but then my computer crashed and I lost all of it, so now thats why this is the "reprise" of it...this song is mainly about Music's decline due to the useless 80's
A long long time ago
I can still remember how music used to make me smile
and I knew if I had my chance
that music could make me dance
and maybe Ill be happy for a while
but the 80's made us quiver
with White Snake, Warrant, and Winger
bad music, a back step
not at its normal depth
and I cant remember who had died
and made music all decline
something had died deep inside
the day that music died
so

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

did you write a song 'bout love
and did you write 'bout God above
did the fan club tell you so
have you heard good rock and roll
does music all come from your soul
and can you write songs that make you dance real slow
and I know that Elvis was the king
'cause he wrote songs that didnt stink
he was around real long
but the seventies are gone
Im just a lonely teenaged music buff
with a record deal and a hit single
but boy do my songs really suck
the day that music died
I started singing

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

For ten years, Bill and his comets roamed
just to get a deal of their own
yes thats how it used to be
now Nelly raps for his fans that scream
with a riff he barrowed from James Dean
and a song that just hit number three
and when music was on the ground
Emenem kicked all its life out
Music's really low
new music really blows
Oh, Lennon where have you gone
and Paul writes songs that just dont chart
and George cant write any new songs
the day that music died
I started singing

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

Helpter Skelpter was much sweller
The Byrds are gone with the 60's genre
"Eight Miles High" really kicked ass
then music fell on it's ass
nothing like it was in past
with Santana on the sidelines in a cast
The charts are filled with pop songs too
no one plays a decent tune
nothing can make me dance
Old bands dont have a chance
New wave tried to take the field
and so music's crown theyll steel
do you recall that music yield
the day that music died
They were singing

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

And then it was just a big disgrace
a generation with music waste
with no time left to start again
so come on Rob be nimble, Rob be quick
Thomas cannot save music
'cause music will never rule again
And as I watched them on the stage
my hands were clenched in fists of rage
no punks could ever sell
Music's a-goin' to hell
as the bands played loud all through the night
Fans went insane and started fights
I saw Satan laughing with delight
the day that music died
He was singing

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

I met a girl who sang the blues
I asked her if she liked the Who
she screamed "No!" and walked away
and I went down to the music store
where I found my music all before
but the music was all new and gay
and in the streets the fans all screamed
the new band's played and their singles leaped
but no songs were working
music all was broken
and the three bands I admired the most
Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and the Who were ghosts
on that last train for the coast
the day that music died
They were singing

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

Bye bye mrs musical pie
wrote some songs that dont belong
and I didnt use pride
and the good ole bands playing nightclubs will find
that music will be revived
yes, music can survive

A five for humor but a three for execution. Then again, about most of today's music, I'm in favor of its execution. With apologies to the late Coach John McKay. "Coach, what do you think about your team's execution?" "I'm for it."
