Karaoke Night

Last night, at Golden China (a Korean karaoke pub), I sang the following song. Where appropriate, I substituted the words "Sierra Vista" into the lyrics. You should've seen the looks on the bar patrons' faces. I picked a good one. Of course, most of them weren't born yet when that song was composed.


A Horse With No Name
(1971)
America


On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After nine days I let the horse run free
'Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

Here is a song you can sing at the next karaoke night. (To the tune of "Gilligan's Island").

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale that will make you red.
A story of a horse's ass,
That ass's name was Ted!

He had a little likker, sure,
To give him confidence,
But when he got up on that stage,
He riled the audience.

Tomato cans and coffee grounds
and loads of rotten fruit
They threw at mighty Theodore,
before he got the boot!

John Law was called to break it up,
The Golden China brawl,
Now Ted's a guest of Cochise County's
brand new Justice Hall!
 
LOL

you bastard!

Still, pretty funny !!
