The Lyrics

In The Cold Mug cafe
Used to hang out and drink 'em down
Always was my favorite bar
Skinny Sam would just keep bringin' rounds
I'd eye the girls..
Climbin' their slick pole
Forgettin' about old Marge, my wife,
Hen peckin' me, at home..
I'd suck each drop,..
And watch more glisten..
Lickin' bubbly white and frothy foam
From a Genesee Flip Top Can
It made my day..

As a wrangler, once rode
For a cattle ranch near Timber Crick
But the boss said,"Ranch or bar"
Not hard to guess which one I'd pick
Drew SSI..
Each month, six nine-ty..
Ol' Marge worked at her cleanin' job
Moonlighting as a cop..
And I'd ride this stool..
Just like a mustang
Suckin' bubbly white and frothy foam
From a Genesee Flip Top Can
It made my day..

But then came a time
Some demons flipped my mind around
Lost all my sanities..
They still talk about it in this town
Hot stripper girl,..
I was taken by her
Until one fateful day,
When a rich old dude came strollin' in,
She loved his my gun fired
No more bubbly white and frothy foam
From a Genesee Flip Top Can
I'm locked away..

Don't make my day..

DKTOS, but I do remember drinking and those cheap Gennies (25 cents a cup at a bar near Rensallearville, NY) when I was young and foolish. Now I'm old and foolish, and prefer sipping single malt scotch that costs $50-$100 a bottle...if someone else is paying...

Sir ~L'Air de Farce~, Duke o'Edge, Lord o'Lustie Parodie, were you a cow puncher, Sir ?? You really sound like one . . . You've got the scene down so well ! ( He rides a stool, just like Mustang )

Farce - I like how you used the word "crick" for "creek". I grew up within 75 miles of the eastern Ohio area and "creek" was pronounced "crick" for the most part in that thar neck o' da woods. I would surmise that it was also enuciated in that manner where you grew up/live? I also very much llike the switch. Great work here! High fives!

Farce - Nebraska huh? Small world... I lived near Omaha from Jan. 1971 to Dec 1974. I remember the winters being so brutal. But "Go Big Red" always warmed up the populace. BTW - Check your author's comments page. You will see where I have partially caught up and commented on some of the parodies that you put out this week. Some great stuff.

L'Air & Sir Guy, in ol' Miltown it is Crick for creek ~ Ruff for roof ~ APPricot for APEricot, Rowt for Root ~ It's an interesting lesson in speech & location!
