The Lyrics

The title isn't in this parody, I just needed a title that wasn't the original.
Desperado, we sang it in the apartment
Though some guitar strings were bent
They brought them out
Yeah my three roommates
We all were at that one college
We got some more knowledge yeah
And had fun times too.

And we improvised desperado
When we were all there downstairs
And I had no guitar but I knew the song great
And it seems to me we did fine
We should've recorded it there
But we didn't think of that
We sang and played

Desperado
Oh, didn't go into trances
There weren't any dances
Just belted it out
Some friends 'round, yeah, friends 'round
But everyone there stopped talking
They all were just balking 'cause we're singing this song

Yeah we did that song in the wintertime
It felt so cold but it felt so fine
I tried to play their guitars the next day
But I only got some funny notes
On the plus side it chased the wild goats away

Desperado
We sang it in our apartment
And we knew what it meant, then our friends clapped
And it was snowing, but no one there seemed to care much
Oh yeah and everybody loved it
Everybody loved it
You know that everybody loved it
Thought up in a snap

Can you name three chart-hitting OS whose names are not in the title? ;) ... that was a quiz question from a DJ, though the songs are probably before your time. (Can't remember them all offhand, but it could come to me.) Another good spin on OS. Five Air Guitars.

Should be "whose titles are not in the song".

College roommates sitting around in the 70s with guitars, and you WEREN'T playing Smoke on the Water? Were you all on drugs or something? ;-)
