Mexican Radio ( Wall of VooDoo )

This is the story of a DJ
Whose career has spanned the US of A
Playing the hits up and down the dial
In between giving laughter and smiles
Over twenty years at the same station
Now is not the time for early vacation
Pack up Lisa, Connor and the dogs
California bound, sunshine and smog

He’s on San Diego radio
Welcome to the new West Coast, Jack Diamond Show

I dial it up weekdays on the laptop
So much fun and the music’s non stop
And the best thing bout this time zone difference
I sleep till nine and not get up a six

He’s on San Diego radio
Welcome to the new West Coast, Jack Diamond Show
He’s on San Diego radio
Welcome to the new West Coast, Jack Diamond Show

No more snowstorms or cold weather
The worse you have to wear is a sweater
After work there’s no D.C. traffic
Now just the beach and sun…. so fantastic
I would like to say one thing man to man
You’ll be the best wherever you land
But now that your on Tijuana airwaves
Your famous catch phrase is ” Mostrar tu amor babe “

Couch on the Side of the Road

5 08 2014

Stuck in the Middle with You ( Stealers Wheel)

Well, you can have all those furniture stores
From high-end to bargain basement galore
Fancy brands like Lazy-Boy and Broyhill
Their okay but they don’t give me that thrill

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road

Yes, a couch on the side of the road
A hidden treasure that has been tossed out for old
A second life is that sofa’s only wish
To find a good home on Ebay or Craigslist

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road

Well, you might think I’m crazy
And your probably look strange at me
But an old couch is good as new
All they need is a shot of
Febreze, Febreze

Don’t tell me you never passed by
A discarded couch there on the roadside
In your college years you wouldn’t think twice
Your friends would have a place to crash at night

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road

Well, you might think I’m crazy
And your probably look strange at me
But an old couch is good as new
All they need is a shot of
Febreze, Febreze

Well, if you want to you can pay retail
Then add delivery charges as well
But me, I do my shopping when I cruise
So many choices, it’s free, I can’t lose

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road
Yes I love a, couch on the side of the road
Couch on the side of he road
Just love a, couch on the side of the road





Weird Al Song

25 07 2014

Motown Song (Rod Stewart)

There’s a man In this city
Whose is Mandatory Fun
There’s a man, that’s so witty
His latest release debuted number one

Bring over some of your old Weird Al records
Plus your fuzzy wig and loud Hawaiian top
We’ll put UHF on the VHS
Act out all his parodies non-stop

Let’s get together, I know it feels right
Let’s don’t worry about that it may seem tacky
Cause it’s been too long that he’s been away
Like a surgeon his prescription makes us Happy

There’s a man, they say not’s pretty
Skinny, tall and looks just like a geek
But he’s our man, and so witty
Parody king, top of the charts this week

Bring over some of your old Weird Al records
Plus your fuzzy wig and loud Hawaiian top
We’ll put UHF on the VHS
Act out all his parodies non-stop

They say it’s luck
But I know their just dreaming
Al proved that he’s no joke
He’s never out of style
His music always brings smiles
Not to mention eight new videos live streaming

There’s a man in this city
A master of being wordy
There’s a man , he’s so witty
Makes you proud to be White and Nerdy

Listen
I know he’s old school
Asking the artist if it’s OK
Without that would be wrong
Yet your still but a Lame Claim to Fame
Until Al Yankovic
Has made fun with covering your song

Bring over some of your old Weird Al records
Plus your fuzzy wig and loud Hawaiian top
We’ll put UHF on the VHS
Act out all his parodies non-stop

Repeat and Fade





Sean Glynn’s Pants

24 06 2014

Safety Dance ( Men Without Hats )

There’s a man out in L.A.
Whose life is very edgy
He borrows people’s bikes, then if he likes
Gives himself a massive wedgie

They say he is very active
Kickball and Quidditch is forte
But once in a while, goes the extra mile
Riding the road Full Monty

Where Sean Glynn’s pants
That must sting

He can ride if he wants to
I understand it’s not against the law
But when you borrow wheels, there’s a code and ideals
Not to bike around in the raw

You were caught up in the moment
That’s understandable I see
But still very rude and clinically crude
To give someone else’s bike cooties

World naked bike ride
Appeals to those without a care
To flaunt in the breeze, what we normally don’t see
Naked from the head to derriere

But there is a code and conduct
You must follow before you embark
The condition of the bike, when returned must be like
In good shape with no signs of tread marks

And we say, where Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
Are they home hung out to dry
Where’s Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
Don’t you stick to the seat when you ride ?
Where’s Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
Take it easy as you go
Where’s Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
One bump and you’re a soprano
Sean Glynn’s pants
Oh where are Sean Glynn’s pants
Give back Sean Glynn’s pants

S-E-A-N GL-YNN Sean Gylnn’s Pants

FYI to male cyclers
Commando riding sometimes rule
But don’t you abuse it
One day you may lose it
And trust me , that’s not cool

Though God made us naked
In his image for the World to see
There’s a very good chance
Under his robe there’s no pants
But at least he wears BVD’s

And we say, where Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
Are they home hung out to dry
Where’s Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
Don’t you stick to the seat when you ride ?
Where’s Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
Take it easy as you go
Where’s Sean’s pants, where’s Sean’s pants
One bump and you’re a soprano
Sean Glynn’s pants
Oh where are Sean Glynn’s pants
Give back Sean Glynn’s pants

Oh where are Sean Glynn’s pants
Please give back Sean Glynn’s pants
Oh where are Sean Glynn’s pants
Please give back Sean Glynn’s pants
Oh where are Sean Glynn’s pants
Please give back Sean Glynn’s pants
Oh where are Sean Glynn’s pants
Please give back Sean Glynn’s pants





Big Hair Don’t Care

19 06 2014

Big Girl’s Don’t Cry (Four Seasons)

Big Hair Don’t Care
Big Hair Don’t Care

Big Hair Don’t Care
( That your there)
Big Hair Don’t Care
( That’s so unfair)

Our girl was crying
( I’m not lying )
Our girl named Ryan
( Wondering whying )

(Silly Brooke)
Down in Dallas you expect it big
(Silly Brooke)
Every lady wears a bouffant wig
(Silly Brooke)
None in sight, not anywhere
Big Hair Don’t Care

Big Hair Don’t Care
( That your there)
Big Girls Don’t Care
(That’s so unfair)

(Maybe)
They are jealous
( They’re so jealous)
Baby they just wish
( And here’s their wish)

(Silly Brooke)
Their so envy of your rap inventions
(Silly Brooke)
And how you where your hair extensions
(Silly Brooke)
With you in town how could they compare
Big Hair Do Care

Big Hair Do Care
Big Hair Do Care
Big Hair Do Care
Big Hair Do Care





A Firm Handshake

28 05 2014

I wish I was mature
Insightful and brave
Awesome and inspiring
Each and every day
The blues are all about
Staring despair in the face
With a grin of hope
To put it in its place

A firm handshake is all you need to show
Honest real music deep within your soul
Truly amazing and a real surprise
A firm handshake speaks to the heart of one’s life

Fly a little higher
Lyrics are heaven sent
In a corner of our souls
That we often forget
The place where love flows from
And your dreams come true
Enough to make you cry
To feel inspired too

A firm handshake is all you need to show
Honest real music deep within your soul
Truly amazing and a real surprise
A firm handshake speaks to the heart of one’s life

( Instrumental )

How proud we should be
It’s hard to find the words
Taken far too young
With so much to be heard
Sandcastles and the Clouds
The music will transcend
If only we were all like Zach
The world would be a better place in the end

A firm handshake is all you need to show
Honest real music deep within your soul
Truly amazing and a real surprise
A firm handshake speaks to the heart of one’s life
