The Lyrics

Well I'm falling through the air and I'm a-gonna be flat
Only got the one life so it's too bad I ain't a cat
Any second now and I'm a gonna go splat
Ain't got me a bungee cord

Well I coulda got a parachute and jumped from a plane
Coulda gone to school some more and worked on my brain
Instead I'm gonna do a quick impression of rain
Ain't got me a bungee cord

Well I'm sayin' gosh dang and I'm sayin' oh fiddle
Bout to have the height of a cake on a griddle
The wind is in my hair but in my pants I got piddle
Ain't got me a bungee cord

Well, your life'll flash by in just a second they say
Feels like this fall is takin' up my whole day
Maybe I got time enough to kneel and pray
Hey God need a bungee cord

Well, here's the last time I ever work without a net
Here's the last detail I will ever forget
Spaced the stinkin'cord but hey the camera's all set
Look Ma got no bungee cord

Well, I'm sayin' crap sandwich and I'm sayin' oh diddle
Feelin' like Wile E. Coyote a little
Brains were a crime I think I'd get an acquittal
Bang squash with no bungee cord

They play this song during the seventh inning stretch of all Orioles games. Excellent song.

Who needs a bungee cord? With this song, you can fly! (Metaphorically speaking, of course!) And I still don't know why the Orioles do that. I mean, what does John Denver have to do with Baltimore? Even if "Country Roads" was written about Maryland, but the writers moved it to West Virginia because of the Pacing Police. (True story!)

Thanks you guys (and Royce too--your comment made me laugh) And Billy: Yeah, I'm done for now at least--too confusing but at least I got one of my best songs ever out of it. Thanks again.

Since two of you have now heard it, I should let everyone know, there is a musical tribute to ten of the writers here that Mari and I did yesterday. On our MP3 website, you can download by clicking on the link at the bottom of Mari’s parody “Daniel”. I will tell you who but not what songs. In order, they are Paul R.-Phil A.-Claude P.-Royce M.-Johnnie D.-Leah L.-AussieBD-Guy D.-Malcolm H.-Michael P. You have to listen to find out what we did.

JMJ I just joined, this is the funniest parody I've heard, maybe ever. At least since "Smells Like Niravana". Not that I actually heard it, although I played guitar and sung it, I guess that's hearng it. But it was still in that rarified air before I actually heard it, although I more felt it and heard it internally than heard it with my ears. I digress. Fives all around! And a bounty on the family of the guy who put the ones in. Good job.

Marvellous, if (thankfully!) a trifle shorter than the OS.
