Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Merry says: I see this title has been done before, but I couldn't resist, as this is a true story. Sawdust and noise have been assailing me for days (and in Reseda no less!), since the fire dept. just caught up with my lax neighbor... Oh! Except the Van Halen part - that certainly isn't true! ;-D
It's a wood world, not Nirvana
'Nough trees-es in our neighborhood too
It's a wood world, maybe got el-ves ?
Enforcers ban this palm-frond blues

It's a saw'n' day, loppin' in Reseda
Sever'd limbs lay stunted through the yard
Because the landlord - with a writ they did dish her
By the F.D.: rat-packing's the charge

Now there's trees - trees fallin'
Yeah there's trees - trees fallin'

Now all the chainsaws shrieking are appalling
My head pounds with pure neuralgia
And all the sawdust is packing my patio
And the wood chips are jammin' up the yard

'Cus there's trees - trees fallin'
Yeah there's trees - trees fallin'

(Trees fallin' yeah there's trees fallin')
(Trees fallin' yeah there's trees fallin')

Now the whine drowns out my Van Halen
I'm goin' blind from surplus sunlight
Another tree falls - squirrels go running
No more leavin' - just a woodpile

'Cus there's trees - trees fallin'
Yeah there's trees - trees fallin'

'Cus there's trees - trees fallin'
Yeah there's trees - trees fallin'

I incorporated "tree fallin'" into "Me Fallin''" some time ago. Anyway, nothing wrong with using already done titles as long as you don't dupe the earlier parody's content. 5s

can't fool me, Merry (er, although sometimes you can...and have....er, anyway...) because I'm sure that the first thing you do in the morning is put on your Best Of Van Halen CD, and then turn it off last thing at night - at least it would drown out those chainsaws - 555
