Topic: An ORIGINAL song (more royalties for us)
Message: Posted by: Corona Smith (Nov 15, 2007 08:41AM)
Due to the runaway success of our collective Eurovision entry, I thought it would be a good idea to write an original song collectively.

I would like to suggest a formula of

A
A
B
B
C

for the verses.

and a chorus (which will be the 6th 7th 8th and 9th lines)

A
B
A
B


First line is:


I'm a gettin' married to my dog
Message: Posted by: Rupert Bair (Nov 15, 2007 08:44AM)
She'll be dead in 12 years
And I'll get to keep the house
Message: Posted by: Corona Smith (Nov 15, 2007 09:41AM)
You are disqualified.

Why is Matt misqualified? I didn't even know one could be misqualified. Did he cheat?

Must everything be truly ORIGINAL? There are an awful lot of good Abraham Lincoln lines over in the Frenches thread.

I especially liked the last one I entered, though I can't remember it right now.

Pass the whiskey, Matt.

I'll explain when your sober, which should be about next wednesday by the sound of it.

Anyway,


'I'm a gettin' married to my dog'

No! You can't do this to me! This is my game, my rules! Smithy, don't do this!

How about this? Line B is mine and line C is Jeff's. He's plotting to kill his own dog so he can live in the dog house. It Sounds like an irish country song

I'm a gettin' married to my dog
I'm a gettin' married to my dog
She'll be dead in 12 years
She'll be dead in 12 years
And I'll get to keep the house

Matt, you don't get it: you've been misqualified.

Misqualification is a serious offense. It's like sticking used chewing gum under the church pew. You could get miscommunicated.

No more dog house jokes. They hit too close to home. Where is honest Abe when you need him?

Have another! One more drink won't hurt you.

It's not hurting me any.

Meow.

I'm not a song writer but does

A A B B mean the first and second line are the same and the third and forth the same?

I'd go with

I'm getting married to my dog....
Tonight I'm gonna make her howl
We're gonna eat from the same bowl
she's easier to handle than a cow

Chorus:
They say a dog can't be a wife
I'm gonna show 'em all they're wrong
They say a dog can't be a wife
We'll be barkin' all night long!

Magicsanta, the formula was meant to signify lines that rhymed, I know a song doesn't need to rhyme really, but I thought that childish simplicity would be easy to follow.

Also one line each seems a good formula, otherwise you are just writing your own song.

So, while the two drunks above are sleeping it off, shall we start again?




'I'm a gettin' married to my dog'

hint: next line could end in 'synagogue'

Actually I've decided to disqualify all of you.

Its my song now.

Even if it has only got one line.

Go write your own.....losers!

Disqualified!
Message: Posted by: Cliffg37 (Nov 15, 2007 09:22PM)
Alright, alright, I will take this seriously...

AABBC ABAB

I'm a getting married to my dog
After a late night cuddle I'll sleep like a log
When it comes to devotion a dog can't be beat
She's a with you forever as long as there's meat
You can have your girlfriend and I'll keep my dog

Chorus

My friends think I'm nutty
and some say I'm mad
But when I'm with my buddy
I never feel sad

Is that better?

I'm getting married to my dog
She's much sexier than a hog
I hope the neighbors don't hear her whine
as I'm waxin' that behind
(I'm removing line C)

Please don't tell me I am a slob
Here's a chance for me to shine
It was a kennel that I robbed
And now that lil' #@$@) is mine!

There you limey mo fo.....

I'm getting married to my dog
And I don't mean maybe
What could be cuter
Than a puppy with the face of a baby?

Posted: Nov 16, 2007 6:52am
I've refined it:

I'm getting married to my dog
And I don't mean maybe
What's cuter than puppies
with the faces of a babies?

5 minute drum solo

The puppies were born
It's out of control, man
they all look just like
that magician Matt Colman
Message: Posted by: stoneunhinged (Nov 16, 2007 08:07AM)
I like it. But then, I'm an alcoholic.

I would take out the drum solo, however, and replace it with bagpipes.

I'm getting married to my dog
He's healthier than many men I've met
No need for expensive doctor bills
I only need to take him to the vet.

I need to think about the rest and will post again

Brilliant!!!

We look forward with bated breath for the next instalment.

Everyone else take note, this is a song!
Message: Posted by: MagicSanta (Nov 17, 2007 01:00PM)
Chrystal got married to a dog
You can see the nuptials on you tube
They are off to honeymoon in a bog
After her car gets and oil change and lube

Chorus
Yes Chrystal is married to a dog
So much better than a hippy from the netherlands
The folks at PETA gave her the nod
But still the folk at home don't understand
Message: Posted by: Chrystal (Nov 17, 2007 04:20PM)
Good job MagicSanta!

Here's my continuing version

I got married to my dog
Taught him how to stay,sit and beg
No different from men around the world
Except my dog pees lifting his leg.


Yes, a dog you see is no different than a man
They roll over,drool and howl just the same
We woman have always known this to be true
men are dogs, we've heard people claim.

Chorus

Meooowwww, that's right you see...all men are dogs
Woman around the world will exclaim
We all know this to be true
Men and dogs are really just the same.

Repeat chorus

Wonder if the Pussycat dolls would be interested in this song? :O)

We are just waiting for one last verse from Josh S.

Then the song will be complete.

I PM'd the last verse. It would stay up here as long as a post regarding Jesus' assessment of the Bush administration.

Just get a metal band to back you up. It will free your hands to do "Snowstorm in China".
