The Lyrics

This is a sequel to a parody I wrote last year, called..what else? El Gasso...if you read it first, this one might make more sense..find it here.. Gasso,"
Now comes the tale of the Son Of El Gasso
Another great legend with boom in his bow
And like his daddy, will become a hero
Keep reading on, and we'll soon tell you how

Mel was the first born of El and Klosepina
A blessful addition, the start of their clan
Family and friends gathered at his baptism
Holding their nose, said, "Just like his old man!"

Twenty years later, grown handsome and tall
Rides a bay horse, he calls Pa---aaa---aaa---aal
The splittin' image of his famous father
With greased lightning butt draw that's faster than "EL" now
Showing his age, as the years, slow him down some
Needs a good deputy, Mel takes the job
Anxious for action, and quite soon he's found some
To town rides an outlaw, who's known as El Slob

Hitches his horse just outside the cantina
Swings through the doors with a jingle of spurs
Grabs a young barmaid, her name is Colleena
And says, "I like red lips, so I'm kissin' yours!"

Deputy Mel, jumps up from his barstool
Flaunting the flash of his ba---aaa--aaa--aadge
Slob, big and burly, says, "Boy, you look girly!"
Adds one more insult, "Is your first name, Madge?"

That's..all.. that it takes

Mel sets a stance like his daddy, El Gasso
His unique weapon is ready to blow

So deathly quiet, you could hear a drunk drop
Whispers, like waves, sweep across the saloon
The outlaw draws first, but has no time to fire
Mel drops his chaps and El Slob with one moon

Colleena gives Mel a kiss with red lips
This starts a love that won't fa---aaa---aaa---aade
Loud celebrations continue till daylight
And the next morning, a big town parade

Mel..and.. El are cheered

Proud is his daddy, the aging El Gasso
Then, he tells Mel of more trouble again
Rumors ring true, 'bout a new band of outlaws
They are the sons of the Lavender Ten

Next day Mel rides out to bring back the bad guys
Just like his daddy done decades before
He too, takes with him, one dozen chalupas
A Lavender shoot out will happen once more

He finds the gang up near Robertson Cliff
And edges in close for the ki...iii...iii...iill
Gasses out nine in a matter of moments
Standing's one last Lav who's stronger of will

So..they.. face off
(uh, sort of..)

Lavender cocks his new Remington rifle
Mel pumps his abdomen, matching the test
White puffs and brown puffs of smoke circle skyward
Lavender dies, but Mel's holding his chest..

Climbs on old Pal and rides off bleeding badly
Barely alive, but, he makes it to town
Nursed by Colleena, becomes a survivor
Today, by his daddy's, Mel's statue is found

Today, by his daddy's,

Like the original, this one is a GAS! I especially liked "Robertson Cliff."
Royce Miller - May 23, 2006 - Report this comment
I'm kind of hoping there's no grandson of El Gasso.....but I do salute you for the vivid imagination in this parody. You haven't been drinking Presidente margaritas from Chile's, have you?

Rex - May 23, 2006 - Report this comment
LOL funny, even if it is "cheeky".
AFW - May 23, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks, Rick C. .....and thanks, Rex...and just out of curiousity, I was wondering what "Cheeky" means, in this instance.
Matthias - May 23, 2006 - Report this comment
This was a gas!!!!! As great story telling as the orgianal, which Gasso's next?
Rex - May 23, 2006 - Report this comment
In this instance, it means "butt cheek(y)". :-)
AFW - May 23, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks, Matthias.....clever pun, there..and.well, I Jokingly commented about "Final Chapter"..........but, really no current plans...Of course, I'm not ruling out, down the road...something could always break in the wind.............and thanks for the explaining comment, Rex...You're right there...Butt is the whole premise, or at least, the action there in..but I tried to keep it more "classy gassy" rather than getting too graphic.

And you diid indeed keep it classy. I, however, have never been constrained by such inhibiting factors as class. :-)

Thanks, Larry.......and thanks, Rex....Nor I, depending on the type of parody I'm into
