"I Just Have Some Quirks"

Parody Written by:

Mark Scotti

The Lyrics

A stereotypical profile of eccentric rock stars:

I just have some quirks
I just drink tang and I live with strays
I must eat buffet
And I like my clothes to be the color grey

Mother called me the alien boy
Outside was too sandy
My friends I annoy
I talked to Mars from a magical can
I sang on the phone 'til I heard
I got a baby grand

And then...

As I got older my songs ruled the school
Teacher said my ways make me look like a fool
I took Jell-O shampoos and played with the band
It made my notes so sweet
That everyone danced in the stands

I defy...

I don't dismiss

Every day as I look back at my quirks
I feel so creative
Just part of my work
I compose all my songs while locked in a shed
And I pound on my keys while I sit on French bread

So what...

I just have some quirks
I just harangue out my songs all day
I sleep on a sleigh
And I talk to a friend that's made from clay

Oozing with loads of hidden wisdom, grand parody and sitting on French bread to boot! Perhaps you Mark, like me, were born and bread back yeast?

Umm, would it be rude of me to ask in what direction was the loaf of French bread pointed when you sat on it?... .lol. DKTOS, but yeah, ya gotta be crazy to hit the top in show biz, it seems. (Hey, I'm crazy, but it only got me to the lower middle.... unfair.) 555
