The Lyrics

A completely fictitious story about blues legend Bo Diddley wanting to play a gig in Duluth, Minnesota on ecstacy. He can't get any so he drops acid instead.
Is this my real life
Are they just fans t'please
Wanted a head ride
To escape from reality
Wore a disguise
Took off on the sly, you see
I'm just a blues boy, I need some ecstacy
But I am feelin' dumb, feelin' slow
Searchin' high, searchin' low
Anytime a deal goes, doesn't really happen for me, for me

Bummer, just called a man
"Got no E" is what he said
"I've got acid here instead"
Bummer, not done that before
But is this gonna blow my head away
Bummer, oooh, didn't think that I would cry
If I can't hack it in this time of sorrow
On the tongue, on the tongue, coz the acid really matters

Too late, my trip has come
Bends visions that all shine
Badly shaken now it's time
"Good high" said my buddy "I've got a glow"
"Gotta play the ol' guitar an' face Duluth"
Bummer, oooh, (an' it's now your mind goes)
I don't want this high
I sometimes wish I'd never done drugs at all

(Guitar interlude while L.S.D. really kicks in)

I see a little armadillo in a van
Scary moose, scary moose, will they chew the tan mango
Wildebeest are dancing, really, really prancing, see
Armadillo, armadillo, armadillo, armadillo, armadillo found around New Mexico
I see a porpoise, he said he loves me
He's just a porpoise from a poor fantasy
Scare me to death with this absurdity
Now I come, now I go, cannot do the show
Gorilla - whoa, without his little toe, little toe
Gorilla without his little toe, little toe
Gorilla without his little toe, little toe
With no little toe, little toe
With no little toe, little toe
Toe, toe, toe, toe, toe, toe, toe
Oh, can you see a, can you see a, can you see a little toe
Break down an' blub, what a devil of a time for me, for me, for me

Now I think I'm a swan man and that I can fly
And I think I can leap off and that I won't die
Oooh maybe, "Don't do this" said my baby
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right out of here

Humans really splatter
Everyone can see
Humans really splatter, humans really splatter, like me

Crazy original idea...kinda fell apart at the end (and a reference to any one of Bo's song would have been excellent), but you made me laugh, that's what counts.

Gotta agree with Aggy. The middle part where he's tripping is pretty good, but the setup for the punch line went on a little long.

May I ask what you were on when you wrote this? :-)
Completely-off-the-wall concepts do very well here, as you've seen , and this one is "high" above the wall (minus the spell-check failure lol), so I go with the above comments.

In response to your question to alvin re: how fast can one come up with parodies, with experience? I can't speak for anyone else, but I expect a lot would say something similar: I've put together some, a line here and a line there, over five months ("A Shepherd Am I"), and, as noted in the intro to another , had it come to me in literally 30 seconds ("God Bless The Governor"). And everything in between. But yes, with practice your mind becomes more demented, leading to more rapid twisting of persons, events, and songs. Oh, and nice ta meet ya -- welcome!
