The Lyrics

Utterly amazing! Not that Colorado has made marajuana usage legal in private "clubs"...that was long expected. What's shocking is that not one amiright parodist has ever used the early jazz standard "The Darktown Strutter's Ball" as a tune for a submission! True, there are inherent problems...no two recordings are the same or even have the same number of syllables in each line. There are more lines that DON'T rhyme than rhyme. The version I'm using is by Fats Domino, typical in most respects. Dudes in Colorado...party on!!!



I'll be truckin' on down to Colorado
Bringin' my "papers" and all my "lids".
It's time to get "stoned", kids.
The whole state now has legal marajuana.
Smokin' "doobies" on the ski slopes, baby.
Gettin' "high' in Teluride - no rub!
They'll be more "roaches" here, old chum,
Than in a downtown Denver slum.
Oh what a "buzz" here at the Rocky Mount Pot Club.

(Instrumental Chorus...not the usual Dixieland or Domino's driving New Orleans piano, but acoustic guitars, man!)

I'll be "bogarting" with all the rich folks, baby,
Getting "ripped" with big celebrities.
I'll hear the stars say "Please,
Give me another 'toke' before it's gonna."
No one's certain where this all is leading.
Could this be another tragic flub?
Next free cocaine in San Fran...whoa!
Then legal crack in Chi-ca-go!
And it got started with the Rocky Mount Pot Club.



If any of you indulge, no personal offense is intended. I do smoke...tobacco. It will be criminalized long before all drugs can be purchased without restrictions. ;D

High marks for this....seriously, good job...you have all the terms in here...I guess you had to do a lot of research, right?

AFW - Thanks my friend. My research alas is second hand. By international law, trombonists can only be boozers...lol ;D

Boppy old tune - ol' Fats sure knew how to get folks on their feet. Thanks for reviving it. Re. your note on instr. break, dopers can dig brass and reeds too, you know.

Following your lyrics against the OS, I was a little put off pace by the changed rhymes. It seems you didn't retain a single word or phoneme from the original which made it hard to keep my bearings. Apart from that, an enjoyable little romp and gentle satire. 455.
