technission lyrics that work with different melodies (30) RE: lyrics that work with different melodies 13 Apr 02

OK, now - *silently* sing yourself the following little verse -
To the tune of "House Of The Rising Sun"
Or "Amazing Grace"
Or "Little Town Of Bethlehem"

An earlier thread-It mentions this
But I'll repeat it here
How "Little Town-Of Bethlehem"
Can be sung to "Rising Sun"

LOL all around. And if you're not a music maker yourself, there is a fine recording of "...Bethlehem" to "Rising Sun" done by "Bob Rivers & Twisted Radio" on the disc "I Am Santa Claus", Atlantic Records.

If you can handle a bit of Christmas irreverence, this is an album that also has "Walkin' 'Round in Women's Underwear" (tune:Winter Wonderland); "I Came Upon A Roadkill Deer"; "Teddy The Red-Nosed Senator"; and many other side-splitters. "Manger 6" is spoken to the Motel 6 "Tom Bodette" advertising melody in background, and the album wraps up on the dark-humor side with "O Christmas Tree" where the traditional "Tannenbaum" melody is accompanied by tuned (well, probably sampled and re-processed) chainsaws and the sound effects of trees being felled. Standard disclaimer: I don't even own stock in Atlantic Records nor did I write any of the songs/ music on this album but if you have disposable income for topical/ limited-use humorous musical satire this is a great one to go buy!
