The Lyrics

If you havent seen the movie, alot of this probably wont make any sense. Oh, and alot of the timing/rhyme syncopation is horribly off...And this is just the first in a series of Spinal Tap parodies ive got on the way...
It's 9:00 on a Saturday
The rock concert, it now begins
Everything is going just perfectly
But David's pod is all jammed up again

He thinks "god, i'm getting so sick of this"
It's an annoyance of the most terrible kind
And wouldn't ya know, all the amps go
Up to 11, except for mine

Play us a song, this is Spinal Tap
"Big Bottom", maybe "Stonehenge"
All your drummers may be 6 feet under now
But at least they didnt go out and binge

Nige is backstage at the concert now
Showing off all of his guitars
They look kinda bling, and they got really great strings
With sustain from here up to Mars

He says "This one you can't even look at, no!"
As he shoos off Marty DiBergi
Well I'm sure that at this moment now,
There's a band he'd much rather see

Now David is hanging with his woman now
That chick that they call "Jenine"
She's pis***g of Nige, you can see in his eyes
He's about to friggin bust at the seams

And the drummer is talking 'bout averages
And how he's sure that he aint gonna die
Cause all the past drummers have bitten the dust
And nobody really knows why

Play us a song, this is Spinal Tap
"Big Bottom", maybe "Stonehenge"
All your drummers may be 6 feet under now
But at least they didnt go out and binge

It's a dwindling crowd, for a 'spinal' show
Now that ol' Nigel is gone
They were playin' at some ol' military base
When something went totally wrong

But now they're playing some venue
When Nigel comes back to the fold
"Sex Farm" hit the charts over in Japan now,
'Tap is back now, brilliant and bold

Play us a song, this is Spinal Tap
"Big Bottom", maybe "Stonehenge"
All your drummers may be 6 feet under now
But at least they didnt go out and binge

Give yourself a bit more credit. Pacing wasn't horrible, and this was pretty clever (especially for using such a mellow song). Good luck on the Tap series. 445
