The Lyrics

I started working on this song a while back because it was said it was part of the Big Seven parody songs. I started working on it and spent a good bit of time on it before I found out it’s NOT part of the official Big Seven. Bummer, dude! Not to worry, it was good practice anyway. I decided to re-work it in a new direction and put it out there just for fun. BTW, I never want to hear this song again. Seriously.

NOTE: "Writer" always refers to the author of the OS.
Didn’t really want to spoof this song
Bad in-tel, what the hell
And so I wrote, took a chance
Between the bleary verses, I have guessed
This song’s first writer, high on
drugs; Yes his brain was *enhanced*

Big Se-ven Lark is what I’ll call this…lark
Spoof pretentious blather just for crown
Thought it was Big Se-ven, but in vain
I don’t think that I can waste it
‘Cause it took so long to pace it
And I’ll never want to spoof this song again
It blows!

You recall the bi-zarre im-age-ry
Melting all around
On the ground, sweet green, surreal
Ic-ing, and flowing rivers in the sky
I just feel like saying, “Damn dude! What’s the deal?”

Big Se-ven Park is hazy, off the mark
Unrequited babble spouting out
Someone left their drugs out, that is plain
And I think the writer smoked it
Didn’t take him long to toke it
Just another writer smoking dope again
You know?

[short cheesy break]

This will be the only par-o-dy
No more I’ll spoof it
There will be no other scheme or three
For this will do it
I have drunk much beer to see me through
But still this song has been a torture, been no fun
And after all, I *love* shabby prose
Hoping that my sar-ca-sm shows
Whee, that was so *fun*

I don’t see how this bullsh!t made it, wish we could lose it
It’s all so queer, surreal in my eyes, Dali would love it
But that’s what smoking the dope will buy
The drug a-buse will just produce songs awry
And after all the bad puns and rhymes
After I have ended this climb
Just to get a medal
And ask myself, why?

[long funky overblown break]

Big Se-ven Lark is melting with my spark
Looks like I am almost done for good
Didn’t love it, sear-ing me with pain
But I hope that you won’t rake it
‘Cause I tried so hard to fake it
And I’ll never spoof this dopey song again
Oh, no!
It blows!!
You know!!!
It blows!!!!!!!!
[somebody shoot me] ;-)

I love the Big 7 parodies, though I haven't written parodies in awhile, I was thinking of writing the Big 7 someday. I love the OS version of Harris and Summers. Great job! 5's! Big 7 parodies are a lot of work and some are hard to pace!

Great job on this miserable OS; this one is not in the seven, but always deserves agood parody bashing. If you think this on ewas driving you nuts, wait until you get to The Major-General song and Blinded by the Light. Good luck on your venture to seven.

alvin: Thanks, yeah "Unchained Melody would be right up there

Christie: Thanks for v/c! This OS is not in the Big 7, it's in the Annoying 8. ;-

Timmy:Thanks, didn't feel bad about bashing this one. I vaguely remember it as a kid and can't believe it did so well on the charts! I've done BBTL and the Major General looks more like a Major Pain. ;-

Fiddlegirl: Thank you , nice lady. ROFLMAO is one of the highest of compliments! :-D

MacArthur: Thanks, let 'em read cake.

Jonathan: I once left my baseball glove out in the rain, now that's something to cry about! :-)

I almost avoided this because the OS gives me a headache. I eventually trusted your talent and sense of humor and was rewarded for doing so, so you are too with three fives. :-D

Missed the BBTL when you posted it, so I went back to look at it - well done on that one to - nice tribute to some good writers.
