The Lyrics

This is my 350th song I wrote and submitted to this site
Wine Red Cy, not white
You must be confused how come you cannot get it right?
Wine Red, Cy, not white
My grammar abuse is from frustration from our plight
Wine red Cy, not white
You must fix it soon or it won't be a pretty sight

I felt secure before
But now suddenly Seymour
Doesn't seem like the best choice
My veins swell as I yell
How things aren't going well
And I'm losing my voice

I feel restless I can guess which
Guests won't be impressed with
Our planning being a joke
And as if I had asked for
A massive disaster
The karaoke seems to be broke

The karaoke seems to be broke!!!!

And I said

Wine Red Cy, not white
You must be confused how come you cannot get it right?
Wine Red, Cy, not white
My grammar abuse is from frustration from our plight
Wine red Cy, not white
You must fix it soon or it won't be a pretty sight

My uncle can't handle
The taste of white Zinfandel
Don't tell me how it's pronounced
If he does not adore
The wine that he is poured
He'll make sure the gift check'll bounce

We need it sweet if
We don't want to be treated
To the world's most insane tirade
If he who's burly's surly
There might be some early hurling
Of glasses and I'm really afraid

Of glasses and I'm really afraid

And I said,
Wine red, Cy, not white
You must be confused how come you cannot get it right?
Wine red, Cy, not white

When we're done
You are gonna be fired
Since you aren't
Very bright
And you make me
Want to fight

The drama will be humongous
It's gotta get worse from drunkness
They will be searching for a noose
A noose from which I could be hung
The drama will be humongous

Well Diddy, Jodeci, Jermaine Dupri
And R. Kelly's what the DJ has
And Nelly, Run DMC
Emimem and the Fugees
Nas, not the oldies group Nazz

The Monkees, Bee Gees
Are what this party calls for
But the cheapest DJ
Took some Jay-Z, Chuck D
Lots of Snoop Dee Oh Double Gee
I might just run away

The karaoke still doesn't work

And in fact
My guests are all white
And old-fashioned too they prefer the electric slide
My guests are all white
And uncensored Snoop would give my grandma such a fright
My guests are all white
And would think I'd do all this on purpose out of spite
My guests are all white
And when they hear Tupac some will be far from polite
My guests are all white
I did not exclude it just turned out that way, alright
My guests are all white

I've got to find robots
That do not cost more than a yacht
And can perform a simple task
I am not feeling too hot
I'm scared of getting hit lots
With a big pot, please do not ask

My uncle can't handle
The taste of white Zinfandel
And I cannot handle his rage
Forget about my pride
Now I'm gonna run and hide

I'll skip town
And not tell what my flight is
Because I aim to
Stay alive

Congrats on 350, Ethan! I believe you've always got to try and pull off a big one to mark milestones (my 200's coming up)...and, my God, you certainly pulled this one off!!! 555

SOTM - And it gets worse, I called the local caterer to have them deliver you some 5s, but you know what, they showed up at my house with pizza instead. It's so hard to get good help nowadays.

(SOTM) Excellent job on a tricky OS to parody. 555
wannabemustangjockey - November 23, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM - some of the rhymes seem forced, but you have some great verses. "My guests are all white / And uncensored Snoop would give my grandma such a fright" is one of my favorites! Good job on this one!
stuart mcarthur - November 25, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) see above - some very pleasing wordplay to match the OS in this Ethan, eg. "My uncle can't handle The taste of white Zinfandel" (love that) and, even better, "If he who's burly's surly There might be some early hurling" - and it gets extra kudos for being one of the difficult hallmark half-dozen OSes - great stuff

(SOTM) Tough song to parody --- I know from personal experience --- and you did a good job, Ethan.
Tim Mayfield - November 27, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM - This is a very hard song to parody. Nice job.
Spaff.com - November 27, 2005 - Report this comment
"Don't tell me how it's pronounced" is perfect after rhyming Zinfandel with handle. And the "My guests are all white" verse is stellar. Great job all around, E-Thang, on a beast of an OS.
Claude Prez - November 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Fun, clever stuff. And White Zin-fandle is the only wine I ever drink.
Phil Alexander - November 28, 2005 - Report this comment
I loved the "how it's pronounced" gag, too - I remember checking out this OS when Spaff did it a while back, and it's a fairly tricky one to do. Extremely well done, Ethan.

(SOTM) Sounds like a parody party to me.
Kristof Robertson - November 29, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See earlier comment. This one, like "wine red, Cy", matures well with age.
Dee Range - November 29, 2005 - Report this comment
