Subject: Lyr Req: Duct Tape Song
From: Melissa
Date: 08 Apr 10 - 07:26 PM

When I understood how our Search works, I looked at several Duct Tape lyrics/threads and didn't find the one I've been trying to remember.

The one I want begins:

This morning when I turned on tv,
a couple of guys were talking to me
exclaiming 'bout the mysteries of Duct Tape.
It's gray in color, looks like leather
sticks 'most everything back together.
I wish someone would patch up me and you with Duct Tape.

CH
Since you left me baby, my life's been torn apart..
   
**
Some stray lines are
'it works on leaks and holes and drips, I wish it worked on relationships'

'if your leg got broke or your engine blew, it'll make 'em work as good as new'
**

I think it has four verses.
Does anybody know this song? I haven't been able to find it on youtube or through searching the lines I know.

Thanks,
M

Melissa-

I think you're looking for the "Duct Tape Blues" that was put together by Joel Mabus.

Try searching again. It's definitely here.

Those words are kind of close..but 'Duct Tape Blues' isn't the one I'm looking for. The one I want has sort of an old country sound to it more than bluesy.

It hacks me off that I've forgotten the words for such a useless gem!

Does it have anything to do with "Duct tape makes the world go round"??? If so, I may know something about this song and the guy who wrote it...

nope, nothing about duct tape making the world go round.


There's a verse with something about the public utitilities dept using it and the last verse is something about getting married and taking a roll on your honeymoon.

Seen on a badge (US=Button) at a science fiction convention:

Gaffer Tape is like 'The Force', it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

Well, it does make sense that such an essential product would inspire more than one song.

Thanks, Betty..it's been a while since I've looked at that list. The one I'm looking for doesn't seem to be there, but I did get to listen to a few that were pretty snazzy.


I can't figure out why it's so dang hard to find!
I lucked onto it before online (I've never heard it anywhere else) and can't remember what the site was called.

ah..that would make sense!
I've been avoiding cabbage patches since I found out that's where babies come from..not a risk I'm interested in taking so I didn't think of looking there.

Copied from the Just Plain Folks forum:


DUCT TAPE
Words & music by Joe Wrabek

1. This mornin', when I turned on TV,
A couple guys was talkin' to me,
Explaining about the mysteries of duct tape.
It's gray in color, feels like leather,
Sticks almost anything back together.
Lord, but I could use a roll of duct tape.

CHORUS: Since you left me, baby, my life's been ripped in two.
My whole world is falling apart,
And I'm gonna pray tonight for a big roll of duct tape
To patch up the hole in my heart.

2. When spackle cracks and nails don't work,
And screwin' only makes it worse,
The solution to your problems might be duct tape.
It's good for leaks and holes and drips.
I hope it works on relationships,
'Cause I got one that could use a lot of duct tape. CHORUS

3. Well, it's miracle stuff, it's plain t' see.
I hear they use it at the P.U.D.
That's right: your lights are on because of duct tape.
If your legs got broke or your engine blew,
It could make it look just as good as new.
I wish they could patch up me and you with duct tape. CHORUS

4. Well, I wisht I'd learned about it sooner.
I'd have taken some on my honeymoon.
There's a whole long list of things you can do with duct tape.
It can make a marriage last forever,
Keep you and your baby stickin' together.
Never, never leave home without your duct tape. CHORUS TWICE

Nice to know there are at least two good duct tape songs.

People who like this kind of song should stick together!

I searched in Google for a phrase from the lyric you posted - I think I used "patch up me and you with Duct Tape" - and looked through the links showed up.

I'm impressed..
I looked as many ways as I could think of and didn't come up with it.

Thanks, Jacob
