Well, since nobody's done it yet....

In honor of the splitting of the forum into music and BS sections, we have endeavored to comemorate the event in song. Here it is.

Reggae beat - make up chords and melody to suit yerself

DOWN IN DE BOTTOM WHERE DE B.S. DWELL

We be hangin' out in de 'Cat Cafe
We not real smart - don't got much to say
De treads up top all look de same today
We go down to de bottom where de bullshit stay

Now we don' got no PHD's
An' we don' know much 'bout sea shanties
Or who in de hell wrote "Goober Peas"
Jus' take we down to de bullshit, please

Dun tol' you twice 'bout ma banjo string
An' how ma guitar got it's first ding
So many times, de same ole ting
To de bullshit - dat's where I'm going

I tink it grand folks knows so much
'Bout major seventh chords and such
An' de fiddle tunes of de French and Dutch
Jus' make me say "Aw! What de fuch!"

So if you find a awful smell
Come from someplace you cannot tell
Is jus' we crazies raisin' hell
Down in de bottom where de bullshit dwell

Bruce

A theme song for Mudcat Gatherings. Priceless. Mo verses please, as in the tradition of spirituals.

Who dat man his face all red?
Must be de one de bullshit said.
Why he look so mad today?
Mus be de bullshit some Catter have say.

Who dat girl her spelling bad,
Must be too much of de bullshit had.
Type so fast she spill her min'
Down in de bullshit lookin' to fin'.

Who dat Guest I see again?
Nonnamus flamer, or nonnamus frien'.
Dat his post I see las' night?
Down in de bullshit, no one right.

Have some time, I like to kill,
Down to de bullshit, go I will.
Time she pass, I don' know,
Time get lost when you stuck below.

Got some opinions, 'times I rants,
Down in de bullshit you get yo chance.
Say it easy, say it mean,
Down in de bullshit no hands be clean.

Now dey say dey's folkies, and po-liti-cal,
Gots to argue, shoot de bull.
Us likes blues, we got de clue--
Down in de bullshit only music true.

Down in the de bottom where the BS dwells
There was Cletus, and Paw, and tons of smell
Along came Tweed who lit him a torch
Boom bang POW! Blew up de porch!

Down in de bullshit de bes' don' go,
Rest of us spoutin' de little we know.

Can't do words quickly myself, but on reading the thread title I was sure it would be constructed on Ragtime Cowboy Joe.

A generational thing I guess.

Anyone fancy a go then we can have endless discussions in 50 years about which is the authentic song (and whether it is folk, of course)?

Allan C asked if it was "crossover" music.


The answer is no, it's "crossunder" music.

Do you think any of the BS catters will think this is as hilarious as I?

Here's to those who rise to the top,
Whose poetic endeavors do never flop;
There's a place for us all in that Kingdom to come,
Where we'll all be reviled as Mudcat pond scum!

WYSIWYG's additional verses include:

"Who dat girl her spelling bad..."

Now, I knew that jOhn's knighthood and MBE were probably phony, but it hadn't occurred to me that "he" might actually be fooling us in regard to something as basic as gender!

Well, I'm a bit of a floater and a bit of a bottom-dweller in Mudpond, and I find all of the verses pretty funny. I'd be careful about casting nasturtiums about PhD's and such, though, because we BS-ers are all highly edjuckated, that's why we're so good at BS-ing. We done lerned how to do it.
