The Lyrics

Yeah, yeah, oh yeah. . .
some renditions—I’d a scribblin’-em yen.

Got stoked up one morning and started writing again;
unplowed and primed, I hadn’t been brown-bagging gin.
I nixed riffs on “Clouds” or on “Eight Miles High”;
those posted here are what caught my eye.
I just dropped in to see the renditions—I’d a scribblin’-some yen.

Yeah, yeah, oh yeah,
I’d been scribblin’ some renditions again.

I pushed my goal: to author a whole bunch and so I did begin;
I got myself beyond doubt and started diggin’ in.
I sat down to write, put down the first line. . .
did a slew bunch over some time.
I just dropped in to see the renditions—I’d a scribblin’-much yen.

Yeah, yeah, oh yeah,
I been scribblin’ some renditions sent in.

Words arranged with keyboard tool; on screen, black letters,
send this one plus nine.
I plan to scoot post-this batch until the next time.
My style: pound out ten; split then off somewhere. . .
a while, once in, come ’round to share
and just drop in to see the renditions when I’m scribblin’ again.

I said I just dropped in to see the renditions—I been scribblin’ again.

Yeah, yeah, oh yeah

Great to see you back JAB, you have been missed! Nice to see a fellow numbers man again. I've been takin' Flak (pun intended) most of the year... but still reached goals of 2000, 2100, and tomorrow- 2200! I've slowed down a lot. 2200 reached in 31 mos vs 22 when I was doing 100 parodies/mo and 200 contributions/mo. Am at 614 IPASOY parodies. I also have 224 Beatles, 150 Gaga, 159 WHP, 132 Superhero parodies, 122 Willie Nelson OTRA, 44 Madonna, 37 I Wills, 30 KPOP, 85 Commercial jingles, and 81 Parodies-of-Parodies! Added Anna Kendrick but only have 10 so far. Still hold the record of only Top 10 Parodist and Contributor simultaneously (Nos 4 & 6 respectively). Hold 7 of 10 contributions categories as No.1 including Fragments. Have held weeks in a row at 8. Have created over 25 new artist pages by myself. I write everyday, but am tired and burned out. Although most of this year I have done serial songs and odd materials, I do have 403 artists overall (not counting poets, hymnists, and other misc people who sang). You beat me on the most posts per day when I was at 22 and I thought about taking that record back with 109 (Hint, hint)... but decided not to compile, then mass-post. You can keep that one! Glad that you took a rest- now you can go towards 5000 next goal :) 555 forever!

Who is this John Barry guy? Whoever you are, dude, I'm glad you showed up. We need some new blood around here

After that spectacular farewell, it was hard to imagine you had more material in you. But it appears you do. To all the numbers people, here is a challenge. Many years ago, when I first came to AIR, I challenged someone to do a rendition of "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts, by Bob Dylan. Leo Keough succeeded last fall. Here's a song I consider to be fiendishly difficult for a variety of reasons: "Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young" by Fire, Inc. from the finale of the movie "Streets of Fire".
