Parody Song Title:
"Bodhisattva: Rapt So, Me"
Is this the real shine?
Is this shine Japany?
I hear a voice whine, and it sounds like the Dan to me.
One of two guys. In that fine group called Steely.
They are not poor boys: they made lots of money.
That name Dan, Steely, comes, we sure knows
From novel by Burroughs
Called "Naked Lunch"; they chose
Funky moniker 'bout '70.
Chant 'bout shine in Japan. It is sung sans sense of dread;
In sometimes a snicker's fed.
Man! That guy has got great lungs.
Seems he's influenced by Buddhism one day.
Sattva, ooh, that's a concept pretty high.
Hindu philosophy they'll also borrow.
Karma's on, karma's on.
The result is "Bodhisattva."
He prates 'bout China some,
Along with Japan's shine.
There's a sparkle in that line
It's high praise for scintillation Sino.
A Bodhisattva is one who's found the truth.
Sanskrit, ooh, not a lingo I
Want to try; it's so foreign that I would stall.
I hear the singing in falsetto of a man:
Starts to croon, starts to croon,
Man, that dude can't chant basso.
Wonder how high he can go, this guy? To top C.
Band did "Gaucho" (5x)
"Rikki, Don't. . . ," "Bad Sneakers," mo'.
Band was the two boys, studio coterie;
They didn't tour, boys, much post-'73.
Some airs were rife with slick modality.
Steely come, Steely go,
Then each went solo.
Brissed singer was half of the Dan duo,
Dan duo, Brissed singer, half of the Dan duo,
Dan duo, slick singer, half of the Dan duo,
Dan duo, plus the studio. . .
Dan duo, plus the studio musicians made
Oh, karma teacher, dharma seeker, sattva screecher. . .love it so.
Beat's 12-bar, but sometimes it swells;
Driving energy stirs me, stirs me, stirs me.
This song is a shorty--no operatic try,
Unlike "Rhapsody," whose guy also sings quite high.
So crazy. . .try to mash these two, crazy. . .
One's got about twelve words; other's a thesaurus peer.
But for "Bodhisattva," I have fervency.
Nuts for "Bodhisattva,"
Nuts for "Bodhisattva," that's me.
There's no way he sings low.
