The Lyrics

This parody may not make sense to the Rush-impaired.
When his granny had a bit of trouble
Saying “Gary” Yiddishly
Speaking with an accent, “Geddy Lee.”
And in those early albums
He sang several notes above high C
Shrieking words that Neil wrote — Geddy Lee.
Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee.
Shrieking words that Neil wrote, Geddy Leeeeeeeeee.

And when the eighties started, then he
Toned it down a notch or three
Still sang like a chipmunk, Geddy Lee.
And though they’re Billboard-charted, critics
Still bashed Rush most heartlessly
Especially the vocals — Geddy Lee.
Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, oh Geddy Lee.
Especially the vocals, Geddy Leeeeeeeee.

And even in my Audi,
“Vapor Trails” sounds quite like shite to me,
Clipping and distorting — Geddy Lee.
I prefer my box of old Rush vinyls
The first few albums post-Rutsey
Shrieking words that Neil wrote — Geddy Lee.
Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee.
Shrieking words that Neil wrote — Geddy Leeeeeeee.

So here’s just one more stanza for our
Wooden-legged amputee
Big-schnozzed Jewish bassist — Geddy Lee.
I bet they make another album
And a concert DVD
If his voice can hold out — Geddy Lee.
Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, Geddy Lee, oh Geddy Lee.
Hope his voice can hold out, Geddy Leeeeeeeeeeeee.

This is working, man. In the end, this is no fly by night parody. I like what you're doing.

I'm Rush-challenged, but I liked this.

I loved every word of it. I always hated Rush and couldn't believe my friends bought their records, and it was all because of Geddy Lee's awful strangled chipmunk voice. You could not have voiced my feelings any better - great parody!

Good parody, I hate Rush. They'd be so much better if it weren't for Geddy Lee's horrible voice.

Geddy Lee is an amputee? I did not know that! Funny song (I happen to like 'Moving Pictures' and '2112').

NOOO! You stole my idea! Haha that's ok. I like Rush but that guy's voice kinda irritates me. Neil Peart kicks ass at the drums though.

I grew up listening to Rush in the 80s and even then I could tell that they were not just another ordinary love+party band. I've heard their entire studio catalog and yes sometimes Geddy Lee really hit the high notes but time has softened the sharpness. Still, like Pink Floyd, Genesis, and U2, Rush has put out many albums - some better than others but all of them have something good enough to recommend a listen. I agree about "Vapor Trails" - good hard rocking stuff but the engineering/production is kinda off! It messes with your mind. Still, your parody is good and I'm glad to see you're not simply being a Rush-Basher. Critics are finally giving Rush the praise they deserve. I would rather hear Geddy Lee's "shrillness" over most "American Idol"/Pop Idol flavor of the week anyway. Geddy Lee is a great multi-instrumentalist, Alex Lifeson is killer on guitar and what all, and yes, carly_carlz, Neil Peart kicks ass at the drums because he is Neil Peart.
