All I wanna do when I wake up in the morning is see you eyes
I never thought that a girl like you could ever care for me
Rosanna, etc., etc.
I went into an immediate defensive posture against this uninvited, insipid musical attack and did a little lyric replacement:
All I wanna do when I wake up in the morning is touch your hair
Like my grandmother says "It's always something" with a girl like you
Lyric replacement is an absolute necessity when you're in the inescapable grasp of some crap song or another. At the garage I used on Long Island, the mechanics were absolute experts at it. Here's their take on the overworked Elton John assault:
Don't let your son go down on me
Although I like 'em young... he always smells of pee
Come Christmas time I'm thoroughly armed with all the song parodies gleaned as a kid from Mad magazine:
We three drunks from Omaha are
spending Christmas Eve in a car
suddenly weaving into a wrong way lane
O-O-O-H! Fifth of Bourbon, fifth of Scotch
and some Vodka on the rocks...
Like Bruno says in Hitchcock's Strangers On A Train, "Criss-cross, Guy." I've offered some replacement lyrics here but I'm never fully armed, so please share some of yours via "Comments". You kill my song and I'll yours...
