The Lyrics

Who else writes songs about writer's block? As Kris Kristofferson would say, I'm a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction.
In a little while from now
I might get to take a bow.
I promised myself
I'd make myself
write as many as Chuck allows.
On keyboard I will type
some twaddle or some tripe
in an effort to
make it clear to you
I'm a writer who's prolific.
But sitting in this chair
nothing's there in my thought process.
My God, this block, a rolling rock
it's gathering some mosses.
It makes me feel so wrong.
So how do I get strong?
This song again
naturally.

To think that only yesterday
I was blowing those guys away.
Looking forward to
well, who wouldn't, you?
my twelve hundredth spoofing day.
But as if to knock me down
banality came around
and with just so much
as a mere touch
left me struggling at computer
leaving me to doubt
I'm a winner, not a loser.
For if I truly do this stuff
why'd I write a snoozer?
But from this block I'm freed
as again I do this deed
this song again
naturally.

It seems to me that there are more songs
playing in the world
that could be funny.
Well-paced and punny.
Which will I do?
Which will I do?

(instrumental break)

This song again
naturally.

And looking back over the years
and these funny music frontiers
I remember how I cried when George Dubya lied
and stayed in through all my tears.
And at 31 years old
that A-Rod bleeds my soul.
I can't understand
why this big rich man
cannot win me just one Pennant.
Leaving me to start
with a heart focused on women
but none want me for ecstasy
except possibly for Arwen.
And when I type away
what's coming her throne's way?
This song again
naturally.

This song again
naturally.

To answer your question up top, Mister Pacholek, I've written at least 2 parodies about not being able to write parodies. You know what they say about great minds...=) This was very nice...and I'd never get tired of this song...again...naturally.

Let's see...Bush - check, baseball - check, Arwen - check. Pach, you have finally achieved the ultimate in parody greatness - you've become a parody of yourself! ;-D Seriously, tho', this write is a class act.

Fine job on Gilbert o' Sucky Song.

It looks like his Daddy got three terms in office after all. Let's face it! You don't become the head of the CIA if your coconut has tumbleweeds(like Dubya's has). His father is the brains behind him. It's almost like he gave Dubya the keys to the car, and got Dick Cheney a job as babysitter. ("Now Dick, remember. No going hunting with my son"). Isn't it suspicious that both elections came down to the electoral college choosing a deciding State with strong Republican ties. I can definitely say that ol George W doesn't come off like he's a chip off the old block. It's more like his Mama had a fling with Jethro Bodine! lol Anyways, I've rambled on too long. Good job. 555

Mike, as long as that's the topic, you can ramble on as long as you damn well please. But here's my question: What happened to Rick Cormier? Are you Rick, now using your real name? A relative? Or totally unrelated?

Q1 - I don't know for sure, but I read somewhere over in the "inthe00s" site that he left to pursue a stand up comedy career. Q2 - Nope. I ain't him, and he ain't me. Q3 - There is nobody named Rick in my family tree, that I know of. Q4 - Ding Ding Ding Ding!!!!!!!! We have a winner. Man, this guy Rick was popular over here, wasn't he? I was first asked about him back on Jan.10th, and I get asked about the connection at least once a week. I'm not upset, mind you. He seems to be a hell of a guy, I just never heard of him before I found this site, that's all. As for the Bush Bashing Party, I will comment every time that I think he screws up. That shouldn't take very long. lol Thanks Michael.
