The Lyrics

Well I'd always hoped to be in a band
And, last night, I thought I had a good plan
Jumped onstage, put my kazoo to my mouth
But I sucked in, when I should have blown out

Down, getting wedged in me
Choking, what a fright!
Seems I have
Sucked in a little kazoo

Yes I've sucked in a little kazoo
When I talk, I sound a lot like R2
Doctor said he'll have to just leave it there
"Cause I can't afford to pay for health care

Sounds from the chest of me
Yoko screaming "ICE!"
Yes, I have
Sucked in a little kazoo

Well, at first, I thought I'd bought it
Screamed aloud, "Hey guys, I need a hand."
Then my friends, they all came runnin'
Clapped me on the back and said,
Breathe. Breathe.

Trying to eat a sub at the mall
But I could see I was getting' no air at all
So I pushed a couple straws up my nose
Cleared a passage now, the air freely flows

Sounds like duets in me
Vocally ain't right
Since I have sucked in a little kazoo

Well, at first, I thought I'd bought it
Screamed aloud, "Hey guys, I need a hand."
And my friends, they all came runnin'
Clapped me on the back and said,
Breathe . Breathe.

Well I don't know why I did it that night
With all this squealing, I don't sound quite right
I suck air, it sounds a little like Cher
Blow it out, and bass accomp'niment's there

Clown(ing) got the best of me
Joker paid the price
Yes, I have
Sucked in a little kazoo
Yes I sucked in a little kazoo
Sucked in a little kazoo

Actually, I have heard the song. I didn't realize it until I took another look at the title, my bad.

This paints a funny scenario..I studied classical kazoo for years, until I found out there was very few openings--fives to ya'
PMS - April 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Too many great lines to mention. Left some indelible images in my head. One of the best parodies of the OS I've ever seen.

Great job, Rick C...good thing for me I didn't have the opportunity to read this BEFORE the first time I performed with Rick and Mari D at the Espresso Gardens (San Jose, CA). In the "bah-bah-bah-bah, bah-bah-bah-bah-bah" parts of "Lady Madonna" (my parody, "Aging Madonna") Mari and I played kazoo's...I got so caught up in the kazoo-ing I was late coming back to the lyrics I was supposed to be singing...lol...just a half-a-beat or so...Rick was smiling and getting ready to grit his teeth, I think...No...not true...I think he was between cracking up and continuing to play the piano...he probably didn't want to have to keep playing the same piano part that bridges back to the lyrics over and over and over and over again until I finally picked up a clue...lol...OH...yeah, 5's here ~ ~ ~ Anyway, if I had read this, I probably WOULD have swallowed the kazoo...

Thanks, Alvin. Glad it was just a little coffee you spurted. Thanks, TJC. Thanks, AFW. Actually, there are only 3 openings for the kazoo, one at each end and, one on top. (GROAN!). Thank you, PMS (nice compliment) and Mr. Robinson LOL :-)

Very imaginative, and hysterically funny. The best of a good bunch today, and one of your best, which is saying a lot. Super high 5's

great title, Rick, and you honoured it better than I would have thought possible, with your unfortuante tale, and "Yoko screaming "ICE!" was a nice sideswipe too! - 555

Heimlich! (I said, "Heimlich", not "Him, lick") ... Another OS that I DK cuz it sounded too rotten to listen to. "R2" - cute and lol. Fives, kazoo deserve 'em.

I got a fever, and the only prescription is......more kazoo! 555's

"I suck air, it sounds a little like Cher"; Rick, that was a great line, especially considering the last Cher song I heard (some dance number) her voice was heavily synthed over. Awesome title sub too. 5s.

Thanks, Dee. Stu-if you've ever heard Yoko's "Walking on Thin Ice", you'll understand what I meant there. She just keeps yelling, "ICE, ICE, ICE, ICE" over and over in a fishwife voice that could only be classified as noise pollution. Tommy- are you sure you've never heard this OS? Thanks and, yet more groans at those puns. Larry, I put my pants on one leg at a time. The only difference is, once they're on, I write funny parodies. Thanks. Red Ant, you hit the nail on the head on the Cher line. That's exactly what I was referring to. They put an effect on her voice that made it sound like two voices at once and, one of the voices sounded like a robot or something.
