The Lyrics

I like many blues songs, this is just a joke, okay?
I went to see blues bands, what I got was this riff
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
I went to see blues bands, all I heard was this riff
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
Same three chords repeated
And that pot, caught a whiff

Listenin' to blues bands, tryin' to stay awake
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
Whooo-eee, just look how much they make
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
I'll bet right after this here concert
I'm sure guitar sales went up

Watching' this old blues band, watchin' people get down
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
Watchin' this big blues band, as the singer makes sound
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
I believe I should go now
Or buy another round

Play those runs, play those runs, they're all tried an they're true
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
Play those runs by the tons, All that jammin' comes through
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
Yes I heard a blues band play last evening
Now I can hardly hear you

I'm done with the blues bands, they sound like all the rest
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
I'm done with the blues bands, hear that riff, I'm distressed
(Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow)
Bored by what I've heard a million times, oh well
They should give it rest

How about writing an original blues tune along the lines of " I've-got-them-I-can't-stand-listening-to-the-blues-blues" ?
Tim Mayfield - January 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Or maybe "Kick-some-sand-at-that-blues-band-cause-I-can't-stand-to-hear-them-no-mo­'-blues"?

Did I catch a typo in "Do-di-da-deedle-ee-di-dow, do-di-da-deedle-ee-di dow"? Just kidding. Very funny, Rick.
