The Lyrics

Scrounging outside of the diners,
Parking lots of hamburger fryers,
I make my dinner from whatever's falling on the floor.

Rarley getting off the ground,
Infesting large and small towns,
Only good for coating sidewalks, with our poo.

Don't get flattened on the driveways,
And watch out for Harley-Davidsons
The drivers always trying to do us in.
No one cares about pigeon's strife,
Always eating pesticides,
And old fries found in puddles of anti-freeze,
Of Anti-freeze.

My feathers are greasy
And my left foot's gone.
I am just an average pigeon in your town.

Now I'm pecking garbage lids,
Looking for for some old tidbits
Trying to shake the grubs and flees from my eyes.

Once I had a pigeon girlfriend,
Hit by a Harley-Davidson,
Her feathers are still flying in the wind.
For the birds, its sure a hard life,
We pigeons have no pride,
Some people call us ugly rats with wings,
Rats with wings.

Leah, it was just a coincidens that I noticed this, but this parody has gotten sorted in an author account all of its own because you spelled your last name with a small l; lockhart.

Well, I hope Neil Young will remember, he's not immune from parodies anyhow. Good job.

This is one Neil Young tune that I haven't heard, but enjoyed the lyrics anyway -- much more realistic than Elton's "Skyline Pigeon"!

Dammit! F'ed up my name AGAIN! Michael...LOL..more Neil Young parodies to come!

Mari-- It's one of my faves, on the "Harvest Moon" CD. Also seems to be played frequently in Walgreens across the country.

Leah, if you're coming Thursday, try to get there in time to sign up. (6:30) Otherwise, you might not get a spot.

Thanks Rick... Actually, it looks like I might have to pass on this week. I'll be leaving town this weekend and haven't done squat for Christmas shopping so I'm down to the wire! I'll be back in January, with hopefully a singable tune that's not outdated. ;-)

Leah, can you see the links to ads for pigeon control products to the right of your parody?
Leah Lockhart - December 18, 2003 - Report this comment
Mari... no, but that's funny as hell.
Mari D - December 18, 2003 - Report this comment
Now the ads are gone! What's going on? They really were there this afternoon! Really!

Leah, could have sworn I read this and left a comment last night. Must have JOTTED myself a message to look at it. or something. I was totally out of sync yesterday and sort half-in/half-out today. Oh, YOUR STUFF, sorry, forgot. Can't place original song at all in my brain. As far as getting your name wrong, look at the bright side, 8 more under the same wrong name and you'll be on the Author list TWICE (but I guess that's only if you make the same mispelling). I have to be real careful now, bashed my finger tips of a couple of left-hand fingers somewhat the other day - clumsy. Not serious but inconvenient.

Leah: I've seen the needling, and the damage done, and I like it.

Thank you Paul, and Michael. I've been a little behind myself, as you might have noticed. Damn Holidays. Careful with your fingers dude, you don't want to mess with your typing ability around here!
