The Lyrics

DKTOS? Worry not, and have a listen to my (spiced up and un-Garth Brooks') recording at Soundclick.com!
~intro~

Nailed her up on your roof
You ask for the proof?...
The shingles caught her golden hair
Defiled a Yugo
Its engine was blown
I got off, but the car's beyond repair

I was 8 miles high
Flyin' the friendly skies
I noticed this cute flight attendant...
Since I seldom flew
I guess I never knew
Exactly what 1st-class service meant!....

Yeah, I've done friends in strange places
From the little towns to bars in Vegas
Show girls displayed
Need to get paid!
Yeah, I'm not big on girls with braces
Worse than getting laid on a bed o' razors!
Oh, I've done friends ... in strange places

~solo~

I've done it in parks
Inside of K-Mart
Aisle 6 of the grocery store...
I've rode 'em at night
Broads in broad daylight
Got a pole-in-one at the golf course...

Hell, I didn't mean
To cause a big scene
When we were a-rockin' Big Ben...
Remember the shock
The looks from the cops.....
When my c(l)ock struck ten?!...

Yeah, I've done friends in strange places...
From the White House lawn to gas... stations
I filled her up
In my monster truck!
Yeah, I've throw down in 'grave' locations
On the washing machine (she loved the rotations!)
Oh, I've done friends ... in strange places

Yeah, I've done friends in strange places
I altar-ed a nun in the church basement
Confessed my sins
Then did 'er again!
Well, I'm not big in science races
'cause I froze my nuts in cryogenic stasis!
Yeah, I've done friends ... in strange places

(Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh!)

~outro~

Freaking hilarious here Jack, and to think this all started out as a parodoke. Are you going to record every time you come out with a new hit, because I really think you should.

inspired lunacy

Hey Jack! I thought this was brilliant! Great to see some new stuff from you! 555

Now, if Garth was THIS cool back then, he'd still be cool today!

Haha. Damn, Red Ant's a pimp. Big 5's.

Funny! But the last lines puzzle me a bit.

If the parody is a-rocking, don't come a-knocking!

Thanks Matthias, Alvin, Jason, Syncronos, JP, Ann, B-train, Peter and 111.

Matthias: Yeah, the idea came from that horrific paraoke recording. This was much better sound-wise, though I should have a better version of it up soon. As for recording everything I write now, that's what I hope to do... I've got quite a few older ones to record first, just as soon as I get backing tracks for them.

Alvin: I misread your comment as "inspired lunarcy": it made me want to "shoot the moon", so to speak.

Jason: Yeah, it's been too long. I hope to have more out soon, though one a month is probably the best I'll manage for a while.

Syncronos: Was Garth Brooks ever "cool"? =)

J to tha P: Nah dawg, notta pimp, justa player. Peace out, homie.

Ann: I'm so tempted but I'm not going to ask why. ; )

Peter: Funny you mention that: in the original draft, I had a line specifically for voyeurs.

111: Thanks for checking out the recording. and for not living up to your name. =)

B-train: The last lines (ugh, ugh...) were me trying to sound like I was doing a "friend" behind the microphone. I see they didn't come out too realistic. Next time I'll mic the missus and I being "friendly" so that it does.

(SOTM) As Al said...inspired lunacy, Jack. Rude, crude, and very chucklesome. 555+

As I mentioned on the recording, loved the "cryogenic statis" rhyme :-D
Phil Alexander - August 29, 2007 - Report this comment
oops... make that "stasis"
stuart mcarthur - August 30, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) hmm, I think you may have inspired the first episode of Californication with that nun incident, Jack - lots of nicely set up gags, and aisle sex in aisle six is a very nice fantasy - and also the OS is crying out for look-at-me rhymes for "aces" and you sure delivered with 'stasis" - lol - 555

SOTM - I've listened to the recording of this several times now, always good for a laugh! Very good write : )

Now that was awesomely crude. "When my C(l)ock struck ten" awesome line, although I wouldnt've put the L there.

(SOTM) You know I love this one, of course I prefer the Whatfreaks Edit. . .but still--very good--of course I remember how this one got inspired, we were playing Karaoke Revolution, you picked this song and we were messing with all the songs and drinking a little bit, I think I did my Don't You. . .oh yeah--this is AmIRight, best line "'cause I froze my nuts in cryogenic stasis!". . .didn't hear that when you first came up with the idea.
