The Lyrics

1. View the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq3-wZs64n4 . 2. Come back here, play the video in another screen window or on another device while you read along!
She’s hot
Get your glove on, you’re late
Small messy space
Walk away from the nook
Watch your step!
Got no time to fix your hair, girl!
Walk in through the doorway
Skinny boxes hang on hooks
Run up close
Get on stage and grab the microphone
Oh, so close!
You missed your cue, we’ll let it go
Just move the camera ‘round the zone

Check out his derby
Yeah the fashion’s really gone
Some amps and drums we see
Get blinded by the lights they throw
Pan gracefully
A steady circumnavigation
Come on baby, do some dancing
A robot overspun
Now have they stopped moving?
Next verse ‘bout to run

Now go
Hit guitarist’s comfort zone
Might he give dirty looks?
Nope, he will not be shook
Now look close
It’s Seinfeld’s frilly shirt now cloned!
That’s too close!
Wait now, where did the cute chick go?

Dude looks so silly!
Lip syncing’s so much fun
Wait now, who is she
That’s cranking out the guitar tones?
Oh seriously?
She’s playing those hot licks? You’re wrong!
Come on baby, now, you’re joking!

Who’s this flannelled bum?
Tell me, who is he?
Where’s the other drummer gone?
Who is singing lead?
Some doofus in his jogging clothes!
Oh seriously?
A new musician has now sprung
Your cute jersey top is falling
Now she got the funk
Now a new guy does the drumming
Who’s on keyboards, son?
Now the blond one’s gone!
This is getting quite confusing!
Dude is rocking some!
Now she has returned to singing
Oh, the song is done!

[who let all of those kids on the set???]

I know that you occasionally record your own music and I would like to see these words set to this original video or even kept separate that one could overlay like Rifftrax. It loses a lot of the humor this way

Yeah, I know what you mean, but the dollar cost and legal technicalities are not in my sights or priorities. Thanks for rating high!

The pacing was a bit off in spots, plus you missed two lines, but otherwise this was a great take on the "literal music video" concept! Tempted to try it myself someday. My only other suggestion would be a realisation that all of the musicians are switching places while the camera's panning around, but that's just me. 455!

Did Agrimorfee just invent a new subgenre here? I think he did! Cool concept, and much like TCOP I already feel tempted to try it myself. Hmmm... I wonder if there's such a thing as a Norwegian Black Metal song suitable for OWN? Or Maybe some Nicki Minaj where she's not already singing about shaking booty herself?

There’s a theme of a typo in the title for each of these Literal Videos that you write. If you do another one of these you should make it a theme lol
