The Lyrics

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000007S7I/ref=pm_dp_ln_m_2/103-7788487-1681423?v=glance&s=music&vi=samplesA midi version (Canadian), which I like....http://www.geocities.com/keyboardca2000/midi.html
Lunatic wings
I hear you out there
Time you're biding
Strange place for your meetings
I've been told you're coming
I can hear your laughter
Unwise, we are on time
You don't land until way after.

-short instrumental-

Lunatic wings
So polite is your scheming
We are Tennesseans
But you have gone too far.
We know you'd like to poke fun
That's your own delusion
It's clear no john's your crime
"They do not care"is your notion.

- instrumental -

You don't have no plumbing
(you don't have no plumbing)
Don't give that knowing grin this time.
We peer at your missteps
(We peer at your missteps)
Way out long the runway.
Lunatic wings.
I hear you out there.
But in these new stark stages
There is still a flight.

You fly in the sky
And ignore you'll go under...
Do you see the persistence?
As we peel you sunder?

Adagio, You did a superb job on this. I listened to the midi and you picked a very interesting sounding song to use here. I really liked it with your words. 5's

Well, I expected this to be about really, really, REALLY hot buffalo wings. I'm not completely sure what it's about though...political wings? I know the original, so I know the pacing is good.

Thnx, Jeff...did you mean to vote? It didn't register.
Jeff Reuben - July 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Adagio, I was actually waiting to make sure I understood what the song was about. I'm thinking political wings right now, but I"m still a bit vague on it.

Oh...it's about a plane trip.
Adagio - July 09, 2004 - Report this comment
P.S. About a plane trip with no plumbing. I guess they figured that we wouldn't mind. :/
Phil Alexander - July 12, 2004 - Report this comment
A plane with no loo? (Sounds like it ought to be a "Horse with no name" parody) No shit...
Adagio - July 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Hehe, thanks, Phil ...that does fit.

(SOTM) Good wordplay and such, but I wasn't quite sure what it was about until I read your comments. Really good parody, 'Dagio.

Trippy stuff; that Canadian midi was cool too.
Adagio - July 16, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Claude. I really liked that Canadian midi too..kinda spooky at first.

(SOTM & L) This is almost like conceptual art. I didn't think I knew the original until I listened to the midi. Nice job with this!

(SOTM) Even after you explained what this is about, the words still didn't seem to make sense. Good idea, but the humour wasn't conveyed, sorry.

Thanks Agri, Melhi and Jake (for reading)!

(ABC) Chalk up another one for Pat and her William Burroughs school of writing! I liked it! :-)
Jeff Reuben - July 23, 2004 - Report this comment
Interesting...although I (obviously) wouldn't have figured out this was about a plane trip without help. I really shouldn't read these things before that ninth cup of coffee =)

Pointing out lunatics is a good quality in parodies. Well done, Adagio.

dktos and still doesn''t make sense to me even after finding out it's about an airplane bathroom. oh well guess that's why i never took an english class in college
Adagio - July 31, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, ethan. Maybe an explanation here? I'm from Tennessee and generally lots of people think we're backhills people...no shoes, using outhouses (that's old). If you want to hear the music, there's a midi at the top of the parody.
2nz - July 31, 2004 - Report this comment
I like this one, and some good sound-alikes. It's probably so deep, I shouldn't understand it yet. So I'm right on schedule.
Adagio - August 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks 2nz! I appreciate you always giving mine a read! :)
