The Lyrics

This is a musician nightmare..
Find this chord
Hum this chord
Mmm a chord

I really wanna hear you
So I don't have to fear you
I really wanna hear this chord
Cause it's so wrong with my chord

My wrong chord
Ouch my chord
Yipes, my chord

I really want to wail you
I really want to flail you-oo-oo
I really want to play a chord
That will fit into this song (A-flat minor)

Find this chord (F-sharp major)
Hum this chord (E-flat minor)
Mmm a chord (D-sharp seventh)

I really want to find you
I really want to find you
I really want to find that chord
I really want to find that chord
Cause the one I have is wrong (C diminished)

Find that chord (G augmented)
Hum that chord (Third inversion)
Try, try this chord (Major second)

I really want to play you (B-sharp minor)
I want to go on tour with you-oo-oo (B-flat major)
Don't even need to say this chord (ahhhhrrghhh)
If it fits the song, this chord (Throw in ninths here)

Man, where is it? (D-flat minor)
This damn chord (Made a boo-boo)
Try this chord (Broke a string now)
Hmmmm (Ow, my finger)
Rotten chord (Need a band-aid)
Screw this chord (Need more lessons)
Flat-bed Ford (That's a lyric)
Offer reward ( I'm so lame-o)
Can't afford (Play the drums now)
I wish I'd scored (Where's the vodka?)
Still ignored (Where's the fade-out?)
Getting bored (I give up now)
Hare Krishna

Thanks Johnnie. Check your email. Song is "written".

This had me howling! Great job at making an interesting and amusing parody out of repetitive original lyrics!

What? No Neapolitan sixth? Seriously, this was flat-out funny! I do believe I've played that chord a time or two - lol! Now shouldn't somebody do an analogous parody of Sir Arthur Sullivan's "the Lost Chord"? (Don't worry - it won't be me!) Btw, is this a parody of "My Sweet Lord" or "He's So Fine?" :D

Stray, I made that joke when Hari Georgeson did this song, and all the comments implied some people didn't get it. But it never gets old to me. On "Saturday Night Live", when Paul Simon hosted and Harrison was guest musician, Paul hummed both songs in the background in one scene. Great!

Good work Rick!

Rick D - Great job, it reminds me of the other night in back of the "Gardens" when I was trying to sing harmony, except this is the other side of that coin.

Must say that this one struck a chord.. but Rick, how do you hum a chord, anyway? I often try and play in B# (though I'm told Dbb holds fewer terrors for the novice)... can't play in C as it has to be C++
Rick D - January 12, 2004 - Report this comment
All I can say is triad, and you'll see. Or do a parody of "Scales and Arpeggios" from the Aristocats. And B # is C.

The backing vocals were brilliant!

Ditto on pickle's comment. :)

All--I can assure you that Rick does NOT play like that! We can, unfortunately, think of a few guitarist who do, though...
Paul Robinson - January 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Rick D - Wow! I must have forgot to vote the other night. In fact , I was not aware I had even posted a prior COMMENT on this one. Anyway, my vote was accepted tonight and then I saw I had already commented. OH...My witty remark for tonight on this was going to be: "Achording to my tuning fork this one was done just right". But since I already commented earlier I guess I can't say that now. Oh, well...Nice job!

A very well written parody if I've ever seen one. It gets a perfect score from me!

Rick, I am sueing you because you have "subconsciously plaguirised" the idea from my parody, "strum a chord" and substituted it into your own. I am the manager of the unofficial Chiffons fan club, lol NOT!!!! Good job on ur parody but If I were a music heavyweight such as Harrison, I'd sue and get rich, hey!

(SOTM) Speakig of similarities between two or more songs, "Chord" parodies have been done twice before: Strum a Chord (http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/georgeharrison8.shtml) and Find This Chord (http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/georgeharrison13.shtml). I thought either one was gonna be about this same lawsuit, but they are both just about chords in general. This parody struck a chord with me, because I am familiar with the lawsuit and TOS. Yet I stil don't see what those two songs have in common. It's not like Vanilla Ice or MC Hammer or anything. You can't copyright a chord, can you? That would just be stupid and ridiculous. If you copyrighted a chord, everybody would be suing everybody. As for unique chords (e.g. E7#9, the chord from "Purple Haze"), Jimi might not have invented that chord. I mean, there's only so many chords, notes, techniques, positions, chord inversions, octaves, etc. I think that if you're gonna borrow or steal from a song, at least try to make it uniquely yours, as George Harrison did to fine effect. Your lyrics were very clever, and so I must give you sweet fives fro your fine parody! Doo lang, doo lang, doo lang... My sweet Lord do lang doo lang doo lang.... Doesn't reall work, does it?
