"Some Muscatel You’ll Spew"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Some muscatel for you?
Some say it’s wine—
Something with which I take issue.

Some imbibing,
Some rhapsodizing.

Some, though, cannot stand it.
Some on it will frown.
Some would call it candy,
Something that’s sugary to drink down.

Some muscatel? Eschew
Some all the time.
Some? Nein!!

Some eschew,
Some don’t do,
Some say, “Euw!”
Something to
Summarize: “Wow!
Some dreadful fare.
Something that’s so sweet
Some makes you bow
Some, till kneed.

Some muscatel you’ll spew,
Some awful wine.

Uh, John, I don't know if you're aware of this, but I read it in Bob Shannon's book "Behind the Hits," and he's a walking encyclopedia of rock and roll history, so I believe him completely. He says that when Screamin' Jay went into the studio to record the OS, the producer wasn't satisfied, because it lacked the ferociousness of his live performance. So he asked Jay what he usually does before he goes onstage, and he said he usually has a drink. So he got Jay a drink, and one drink became another, and so on, until the result was the performance we all know. And guess what drink it was? It was Muscatel. True story.

Thanks, Michael--I'd heard he was drunk for the session but did not know 'twas on Muscatel. Thanks, Leo, UKV, Alvin.
