The Lyrics

Queñua - tree that grows in the Andes
Twenty seven rabid llamas
Tried to bite me
In my pajamas
I was camping
Up in the Andes
Now I am defendin'
My life from these pack beasts

Gun reload, take aim low
Shoot yer face, now yer gone
Get lead in ya, mountain llama
Take aim low, gun reload

Empty beer cans, gathered round me
Unzipped the tent flap, and staggered off to pee
Then rabid llamas attacked me, don't know why
I grabbed up my shotgun
My first shot missed, too high

Gun reload, take aim low
Shoot with haste, every one
Get lead in ya, dumb alpaca
Gun reload, take aim low

I hear them bleat
In the midnight hours they taunt me
Maybe it's this sacred burial ground I traverse
And reloading my gun I get a feeling
I'm the victim of an ancient Incan curse, Incan curse

Gun reload, take aim low
Shoot well-placed, in each one
Rabies mania, mountain llama
Take aim low, gun reload

Can't reload, ammo's gone
Now the chase, has begun
Climb a Queñua, trapped by llamas
Stuck alone, man I'm pwned
Stuck alone, man I'm pwned...

Bizarre image. I'm deathly afraid of large dogs, myself. No particular fear of llamas, but then they are not normally seen running in packs along the streets of Kansas City. By the way, Llama is also the brand name of a Spanish handgun. Which would come in handy if you were ever attacked by a herd of llamas.

Quite a unique, dark humored tale..

Strange and funny tale; I never would have thought of llamas as vicious creatures.

I always thought Sophie Tucker was "The Last Of The Red Hot Llamas." Maybe I'm just confusing her with Fernando Llamas. ;D

Thanks for the props, guys! Yes, this one did turn out a bit bizarre. I started with the "gun reload" replacement for "country road," then "mountain llama" and the rest kind of wrote itself from that.

Then rabid llamas attacked me, don't know why .... 11 .. two over, and stress is off from the beginning::

DARK and DUS
then RAB id

Enough ragging. A little more attention to pacing and stress, and you'd have something good here.
May I humbly suggest TT's Guide To Perfect Parody Pacing? Only two pages, and a sure-fire method to *nail* every song you ever do.

Hope it helps, and keep working and growing. Good raw talent there, for sure. -- and I hope you take the above in the constructive spirit in which it was intended. Cheers! Dark and dusty, painted on the sky

You can dock me for duping part of the above analysis -- it was written in wordpad and pasted -- erroneously, obviously. Which is why I wish we had a preview pane for comments, as we do for parodies - so that one can see what the posted result will look like, and catch such errors before submitting.

Ha ha, nicely done, Phil! (Or should I say, Phillip McCrack?)

No, you shouldn't.

..."Philip" should only ever have one "l" ;-)
