The Lyrics

I can't believe that no one has posted this title yet!
What's that white paper sitting there
All alone on the Capitol stairs?
He said I come from halfway across the land
I sit here waiting for a Congressman
'Cause I'm just a bill, a lil' ol' bill
I started in someone's mind
I'm just a bill on Capitol Hill
I hope that someday I'll be signed
Oh...I want to be a law!

It started when someone thought that I
Was necessary, and friends were on his side
They told their Congressman, and he agreed
Now it's a signature that I need
Oh, I'm just a bill, I'd rather not be
'Cause a new law could make things all right
I'm just a bill, the debate could take weeks
I could die in committee one night
I'm just a bill in the land of the free
A legislative prototype
Oh...I want to be a law!
Oh...of the land I'll be the law!

I'm just a bill
I'm just a bill on the Hill
Unless Congress votes for me...

I'm just a bill, will I die in committee?
I've come too far to be thrown away now
I'm just a bill, hope they vote for me!
But a veto could still shoot me down
I'm just a bill, lucky me!
The committee's debating me now!
Oh...I want to be a...
Oh...he signed me into...
Oh...today I am a
Law

Great job, RR ... and you might have given me an idea, heh heh heh... ;-)

Thank you! Can we expect "Just a Girl" to the tune of "I'm just a bill"? I started working on that last night, but it's limping along rather lamely.

Nope, I'm thinking more along the lines of "Pork Barrel Blues" or "Capitol Blues" as a parody of "Wedding Bell Blues".

Great! Can't wait to see it!

I love inanimate object viewpoints, and this one was very funny, Ravyn Rant. This passes 55-5.

Ravyn, do you mean using the OS for a parody? I did...and maybe some others...I may have used "I'm Just A Girl" as the OS title...Or maybe you meant YOUR parody title...I'm not sure...anyway, I like the sub lyrics, I'll vote when I listen to the OS track at home later and go along with your lyrics.

Oh, my fading memory...I did indeed listen to "Just A Girl" last...I remembered I wanted to...I didn't remember WHY, though...lol...sending myself an e-mail reminder...is that "funny" or "sad"? Or both?

Paul - I meant using TOS specifically for "I'm Just a Bill" from "Schoolhouse Rock" - you know, "I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill"... (Now there's one to challenge a fading memory!) It seemed like such an obvious idea to me that I was surprised that someone hadn't beaten me to it. Am I the only poster with a set of "Schoolhouse Rock" refrigerator magnets? Oh, and I send myself voice mail all the time so I can remember stuff once I get home from the office - it's not just you!

Sorry I'm late, but I love this OS (in my opinion one of the best Ska songs ever) and your parody doesn't let the OS down one bit. . .Would not be hard to perform, and certainly deserving of a crowning 5 vote!
