The Lyrics

Inspired by FG and TT's tribute to ABBA, here's mine for Genesis. From Genesis' perspective
We're gettin' it, gettin it the induction and it's all right
We're in the hall of fame and you'll see it, yeah that's all right
We've had lots of hits, some tours, gone solo, we've been successes you see, oh

Yeah tonight, tonight, tonight, oh, the hall of fame all right
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh

Well Peter left and got shocked by a monkey, but it's all right
Tried to pick himself up, on a hill that's called Solsbury
Don't you know it's all right,
And then the drummer sang too, Phil in front, does both on cds
Auditioned some but went for Phil, yeah

Concerts those nights,those nights, those nights, oh, sang,played with all our might, those nights, those nights, those nights, oh

And then Mike's Mechanics got some hits, Tony had an album
And then he had a big orchestra, and Phil really hit it big
He Had a lot of hits, and now they're calling
They love us to bits, wanna induct us too

Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh, they'll induct us tonight, Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh

Now they're telling us we've got everything
I guess we've got everything we want
We're done touring but now we're honored
Yeah we are so honored, this we'll flaunt

Judges liked In Too Deep, and they also liked
that Dreaming While You Sleep, oh get us into there
Gotta get into there, why did they lock the stupid door,
Stupid door, and they say hey! Front door's over here

Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh, they'll induct us tonight, Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh

We're goin' in, goin' in and we'll sit down, but not for long
Some artist will induct us, and we'll see that, we'll get up and hear our songs
And we'll be so honored, with atll that, then we'll be
In the rock and roll hall of fame, oh

'Cause Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh, the hall of fame's all right, Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh,

We're getting mobbed by fans, we're so getting mobbed by fans
Just help us, we'll do anything, anything if you just help
Get us out of here

Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh, the hall of fame's so bright, Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh,
Yes, Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh, the hall of fame's so bright, Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh,
Tonight, tonight, tonight, yeah

Once more from "The Beginning"! Deserved tribute from a fine writer. ;D

It's all Greek to me, or Aramaic (two of the languages in which Genesis and the other books, both Old and New, were written), knowing neither TOS or the events described. Again, good writing technique, and thanks for the plug. Maybe someday, we'll get on the same page, LOL. Will spot you Fives in honor of Genesis' induction (and flattery gets you everywhere too, wink. ;)

Thanks Ribber and TT. TT, the original was a big Genesis hit, and apart from the history of the band, the events were me imagining them at the Hall of Fame before it happened.

Nice inspiration you had with FG and TT's ABBA tribute and also nice to hear it from a Genesis perspective. Loved the way you came up with Peter getting shocked by a monkey and most 80's rock bands mentioned in this song! This is perfect satire to sing at the VH1 Hall Of Fame like shows! I echo comments above and 5's!

Nice piece! I'm a Genesis fan, but an even bigger Peter Gabriel fan. Hoping to get tickets to his upcoming tour.

Crap! I do that more than I care to mention. Phil, I entered the security code instead of my name. But I do agree with 9FP.

Here's an easy way to help remember: The box *closest* to the security code gets the security code, OK? (Rim shoTT!)
