Somebody Done Somebodies Song Wrong

With much appologies to Ricky Nelson and his song "Garden Party" I give you...drum roll please....."Liberal Party" a TABaker somewhat original:

I joined the Liberal party
To influence my friends
A chance to change ideologies
and to take power again

I ran for leader of the party
They all knew my name
But most did not like me
I won just the same

But it's all right now
I've learned my lessons well
I can't trust anyone
So I'll do it all myself

People came from miles around
everyone was there
I screamed about CO2
How it polluted the air

Over in the corner
Much to your surprise
Mr. Chretien hid in the background
Giving me advice

But it's all right now
I've learned my lessons well
I can't trust anyone
So I'll do it all myself

Played them with all the old lines
Thought thats why they came
No one heard the rhetoric
It didn't sound the same

I said hello to Mary Lou
She works at CBC
When she asked me about Alberta
It was time for me to leave

But it's all right now
I've learned my lessons well
I can't trust anyone
So I'll do it all myself

Someone opened up a closet door
And out stepped my past
How dare they bring up my citizenship
I was aghast

If you gotta play in political parties
I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories serve me well
I'd rather study ducks

But it's all right now
I've learned my lessons well
I can't trust anyone
So I'll do it all myself

PS: Put it to music & post it on YouTube.

Tim said...

Thanks... I was bored and it was a slow news day...

PS... the music is already done re "Garden Party". I'll put it on Youtube as soon as you can find someone to do the singing cause no one wants to hear me perform it! Maybe Celine would be interested?

ABFreedom said...

Tim said...

No they don't! No worries there will be no link involving me singing... EVER!

Awesome! Welcome to the world of filking!

Mind if I use this (I always credit my sources)?

Tim said...

Filking?... looking that one up now....never heard of it...

Be my guest Chimera, I'll come see ya for my royalties when it makes you rich and famous....LMAO Perhaps you would be willing to fulfill Candace's wish of it being on Youtube?

Tim said...

PS... Chimera, your "welcome to filking" was a tad late. I just remembered one I did back in November. A spoof on the Canadian National Anthem.... oh well, I'll forgive ya....
