I sang this is the songwriters workshop at FSGW Getaway 2012


Some fiber folk went out to KIP One bright and sunny day
Upon a bench they rested, nearby a public way
When all at once there gathered there in just a little bit
A crowd of nosy tourists to watch those crafters knit.

|Yippee-i-yaaaaaaaaa
Yippee-i-oooooooooooooo
Ghost knitters by the road
|

Their needles were on fire and the yarn it shone like steel
As yard by yard of knitting, began to fast unreel
A bolt of fear ran through the crowd, as the row it neared the end
'Til the needles were revers-ed; and began to knit again.

|Yippee-i-yaaaaaaaaa
Yippee-i-oooooooooooooo
Ghost knitters by the road
|

Their eyes were blurred, their fingers cramped,
their shirts were soaked with sweat
They're knitting hard to finish soon but they ain't finished yet!
For they're doomed to knit forever on that bench out by the road
With their Navajo plied bison yarn....
that they hand dyed with Woad!

|Yippee-i-yaaaaaaaaa
Yippee-i-oooooooooooooo
Ghost knitters by the road
|

Love it, Mario - thank you!

Qiviut puts in an appearance in another parody I'm working on...set to the tune of "They call the wind Mariah"

which reminds me - I need to get the verses to "Woad in the Garden" oinned down and into print.

MMario: Priceless! I started singing it right off the hop, then tried to raise my youngest on her cell phone to sing it for her. She's both a great fan of parody & a great knitter. May I share this with the seniors with whom I do music? It's great fun, Mario. [btw sis's book looks like a great read!]

openMike--lol==don't get me started on knitting puns

cheers all
keep on pickin
