The Lyrics

Call it catharsis. Call it frustration! Some people on YouTube won't give their disappointment when they didn't see their favorite member of the Hollies up on stage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony a rest. It's over. It's done with. And they wouldn't have gotten their awards if Graham Nash hadn't escaped their clutches in the first place unless Graham had gotten his way in the first place....
It was fifty years or so by spring,
Graham and Allan joined a band to sing.
Since they left, the rest don't change their style
They've been whipping that dead horse a while...
If anybody really cares,
Amazing that the group's still there...
Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band!

It's Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band,
So technicallly it's not a scam...
It's Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band;
Just close your eyes, pretend it's Graham...
Tony Hicks's Hollies,
Tony Hicks's Hollies,
Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band

It's years since they've done new stuff,
Nostalgia brings them cash...
But please just tell their audience,
It's years since they've had Allan Clarke!
We can't all be Graham Nash!

Their harmonies are still pristine,
I hate to sound so dog-goned mean,
But you know that it was such a shame
Things were mucked up at the Hall of Fame.
Sylvester may have messed it up,
But really everyone was snubbed
By Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band!

Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band,
Decided that they would not show.
Whilst after Graham and Allan both had gone,
Sylvester festered on his own.
Tony Hicks's Hollies,
Tony Hicks's Hollies,
Tony Hicks's Hollies...
Who could fix these Hollies,,,,

Tony Hicks's Hollies Tribute Band
Snubbed everybody at the bash.
Wouldn't it be lovely to this day if everyone
Had acted more like Clarke and Nash....
Tony Hicks's Hollies,
Tony Hicks's Hollies,
Tony Hicks's Hollies
Tri- bute Band!!!!!

(Stephen Stills)

What did you think till the Hollies got in?
Did you already think they were there?
Our great expatriate's no also ran
But Jann Wenner didn't seem to care...

But I confide to you, they owed CSN
They couldn't hide it, that they owed CSN
I'll tell you why, it's because they owed CSN

Why did our harmonies turn out so well?
I can tell you that it all adds up to three.
Why does the Manc sing as clear as a bell?
They were stolen from by Dave and me...

Whoa, I confide to you, they owed CSN
They couldn't hide it, that they owed CSN
I'll tell you why, it's because they owed CSN

Does it need explanation?
They just plain needed to vote...
Weren't his group a sensation?
They just plain needed to vote....

It was fifty years or so by spring,
Graham and Allan joined a band to sing.
Since they left, the rest don't change their style
They've been whipping that dead horse a while...
If anybody really cares,

Buffalo Springfield did not last as long
It imploded, that was meant to be
Maybe the Byrds could have made some more songs...
But you still have David, Graham and ME...

Whoa, I confide to you, that they owed CSN
They couldn't hide it, that they owed CSN

Touche. To certain parties on YouTube who haven't left this alone since March: End of story. To everyone else: My apologies for sheer hubris.

Brilliant play off the original lyrics. But I downrated funniness just 'cause I don't get some of the points you're out to make here, since I'm NOT plugged into the continuing drama....
