Song without words or song or really anything much.

I met a nice young woman tonight, 18 years old and going to both high school and community college. Her boyfriend is a Marine and he’s in Fallujah. I wonder if he’ll come home? And what he’ll be like? I hope it all turns out okay but it’s a heartbreak.

I was listening to Guadalcanal Diary’s fine serial killer song “Please Stop Me” and I realized that my favorite line in the song, which is “Find yourself in Georgia with a pitchfork through your head” is not on the album version. Either they only did that line live, or I invented it. I sure hope it’s the former!

WORD SUBSTITUTIONS:

Substitute “lunch” for “love” in all pop songs.

Substitute “bozo” for “cyber” everywhere.

Substitute “emo” for “evil”.

I’m off to watch Resident Emo and have some bozosex.

      1. That’s a good one
        I share my friend’s disappointment that “I Will Always Drug You” isn’t on the list, but that’s probably because it’s originally a Dolly Parton song.

  1. I’m sure there is a mondegreen community on LJ, but I wonder if there is a community of just word substituting or nearword play ideas.
    When I’m in a store where I can’t stand the blaring piped-in pop music, I start to think how I can change the words to at least cope with mindless music. Thanks for the Whitney substitution word. Now I can exorcise her disembodied screech.
