The Lyrics



Chucky wants more parodies inspired by the news items in the Music News link. So this one is based on the March 10 item about the busdriver for the Dave Matthews Band who dumped 360kg of human waste off a Chicago bridge onto a tourist boat passing underneath – so leave me alone Pooh Police – these are just the facts ma'am.......... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/music/4335667.stm
I asked my date
to take a walk
to Upper Deck
for a little "talk"
Under a bridge
our boat had cruised
t'was dark and cold
how could I lose?

I planned tonight
that she'd be mine
I used my best
romantic lines
and as I said
"let's go to bed"
a great big turd
fell on her head

startled, she gasped
"My God, what's that?"
I said "shh, shh"
and threw it back
and as we start-
ed to make love
a yellow flood
poured from above

"eee - ew, what's that!?!?"
my love complained
I whispered back
"a spot of rain"
I needed some
-how to divert
her, so I could
undo her shirt

alas, she twigged
it was a lie
and so she looked
up to the sky
t'was not what she
would've hoped to see
two million logs
dropping on we

as I came to
and dug us out
sadly I knew
I'd go without
completely drenched
in sh** and pi**
din't even GET
a goodnight kiss!


based on this news item from "Music News"..............http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/music/4335667.stm

DKTOS, but DGAF: there were a couple of truly LOL moments in this one :-)

For those of us who lack the imagination to understand what it iwas really like, you filled in more than all of the gaps! Fine parody to one of my favorite folksongs. Thanks!

Thanks Phil
Thanks Newfoghill - I actually scanned the story to see what happened to people standing on top deck, and it didn't say, so I had to hypthosise :-)

This was a real good job....I mean the one you did, Stuart....The story also brings to mind, an old movie..."The Rains Of Rankypoo" or something like that...555
alvin rhodes - March 21, 2005 - Report this comment
yeah, that would put a damper on things...funny one...5s
Stuart McArthur - March 21, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks AFW - don't think I'll be renting that one :-)
thanks alvin - damper is actually the name of an Australian bush delicacy - unlike the subject matter

As my cousin Dave Barry might say: "I'm not making this up." Good one, Stuart.

Stuart McArthur - March 21, 2005 - Report this comment

Ewwwwww!! This is another classy effort, Stu....after I stop vomiting, I'll give ya 5s
Stuart McArthur - March 23, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks Kristof - I'm sure you meant to say "assy effort" but your decent English-affected manners prevented you!!
Kristof Robertson - March 23, 2005 - Report this comment
Hey Stu...I haven't totally lost my Aussie roots...and would never say "ass" unless in a parody...so this was an ARSEY effort...:-)

That is a parody to an oldie by Joan Baez. It sounds like what would happen if a block of waste from an airplane fell through your roof. That has happened.
Stuart McArthur - April 03, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks 2Eagle - yes it has happened, but this actually happened too - the link after the parody leads to the full story (and thanks for the Baez info - I've only ever heard the Olivia version)
