About 15 years ago, while I was writing new music to play and perform on my guitar, I kept thinking what a good idea Weird Al had - parody (which wasn't his own idea, but he made popular).  Take a catchy song and change the lyrics to create humor.  Now, I still write original music, but this was a nice diversion.  I was lucky enough to get to play some when I toured coffee shops back in the day.  Music has always been my refuge from stress and anxiety and help me mostly overcome stagefright.

I figured I could share a couple here (lyrics only) if you can imagine music in the background. Maybe they will at least make you smile.  Enjoy

"Superglue" - parody of Romantics song "What I Like About You"

What I like is superglue, it holds things tight.
You get it on your fingers, youíll be in the ER tonight..yeah

   Iím gluing things to my ear
   I call 911, I can barely hear
   So very true
   Thatís what I like-superglue
   Thatís what I like-superglue

What I like is superglue, it really bonds to glass
Shake it up, jump aroundÖthat stuff dries really fast

   Iím gluing things to my ear
   I call 911, I can barely hear
   So very true
   Thatís what I like-superglue
   Thatís what I like-superglue

What I like is superglue, it keeps you warm at night
Itís toxic and flammable, gotta twist the cap on tight..yeah

   Iím gluing things to my ear
   I call 911, cause I can't hear
   So very true
   Thatís what I like-superglue
   Thatís what I like-superglue

A Christmas themed one called "Santa's Workshop" - parody of "Sweet Home Alabama"

You can hitch a ride to the north
Where the weather is so cold
Your breath may turn to ice
And your bones ache if youíre old

At the pole there is a workshop
That is where the toys are made
You may want to come and visit
Just donít drink the lemonade

   Come see Santaís Workshop
   The elves have slaved all year long
   Come see Santaís Workshop
   Nothing there could go wrong
                
Up north, they love Santa.   Whoo hoo hoo
The elves do what he says to do
Working late hours with no benefits
But their colored hats are brand new

   Come see Santaís Workshop
   Theyíve never had a Workerís Comp Claim
   Come see Santaís Workshop
   The Christmas magic kills the pain

Now I may sound like a cynic
And I may sound like I donít believe
But thereís a reason for my warning
Reindeer potpourri is hard to breathe

   Come see Santaís Workshop
   Itís a wonder to behold
   Come see Santaís Workshop
   And watch the origami unfold

   Come see Santaís Workshop
   Candy canes and sparkling lights
   Come see Santaís Workshop
   Just donít come on Fight Club night 

And "Cyberpace" I wrote around 2004.  A parody of "Basketcase" by Green Day

                
I bought a PC, pay a monthly fee
 
And access the web at blazing high speed.

I can have it all-movies, music and the news
             
Transmitted to my house, with just a click.

   
   Sometimes my blogs give me the creeps.
   
   I thought that YouTube was the key.
   
   I Google way too much, spamming is my crutch.
   
   Am I just sleep deprived.  Canít log off.

I quit my new job to hang out on the web

Dating girls in France I havenít met.

Bought cars on eBay, I have no way to pay.
                     
My parents cut me off cause I put them in debt.
