I was going to wait until the morning to start this Challenge!; but, I figured I'd give the 'Catters across the pond an opportunity to have the first crack(s) at this one -- it's just so atypically American ;-) So, close your eyes, get a good funk beat going in your brains (circa 1970), hear those horns blaring and that humongous trap set making the stadium floor bounce, and in your mind's eye -- Here comes The Soulman, James Brown, out to the center of the stage, grabbing that mic off the stand, twisting his toes into a blur of black patent leather, and screaming at ya:

Whoa, HOT PANTS! Good Lawd, That's Where It's At! -- Colorado Springs, Colorado, Jun 27, 2001 -- If you're thinking about going to the mall in that snappy aluminum-lined underwear in the back of your dresser drawer, think again.

Beginning Sunday, it will be illegal in Colorado to wear aluminum underwear.

OK, there's a caveat. You can wear aluminum briefs and lingerie as long as it's for personal amusement - but not if it is to help steal by foiling stores' anti-shoplifting devices.

The new law is no laughing matter ... really.

"This is serious business," said Sen. Stephanie Takis, one of the bill's sponsors. "We have laws against using crowbars as theft devices, but if you were lining your underwear with aluminum foil, that was not a crime."

And by golly, said Takis, it should be. She cited several Denver-area malls that have caught shoplifters with aluminum-lined shopping bags and even the so-called "iron pants" and could do nothing to stop it.

Steve Miller, an attorney who helped draft the bill: "I don't know if it was the highlight of my career, but I got the assignment."

Miller said the bill went through several evolutions - "or devolutions depending on your viewpoint" - before it received Gov. Bill Owens' approval.

Essentially, it makes it a misdemeanor to make, wear or know others are wearing aluminum underwear if they intend to use it to fool stores' theft-protection devices. Those devices electronically sense when merchandise leaving the store hasn't been handled by a cashier, and foil can interfere with that detection.

Miller said the new law also gives store employees civil and criminal immunity if they stop shoppers who crackle when they walk.

GO FOR THE FUNK, CHALLENGE!RS!!

DON'T WEAR YOUR DRAWERS TO TOWN

Tune: Don't Take Your Guns to Town, by J. R. Cash
Click to Play



                    A young JD named Sammy Grant
                    Grew restless in the 'burbs
                    A boy who wanted many things
                   Including "special" herbs
                    He changed his clothes and spiked his hair
                    And let his shirt hang down
                    But his mother called from the sewing room:

                    "Don't wear your drawers to town, son
                    Leave your drawers at home, Sam
                    Don't wear your drawers to town."

                    He sang as he drove into town,
                    He was feelin' might pleased
                    For underneath his Levis he
                    Wore Reynolds' BVDs
                    He stopped along the Interstate, his longjohns sagging down
                    But his mother's words echoed again:
 
                    "Don't wear your drawers to town, son
                    Leave your drawers at home, Sam
                    Don't wear your drawers to town."

                    He strolled into a shopping mall to lift some great CDs
                    And find some brand new running shoes, young Brenda Snope to please
                    He saw the cashier smile at him, her eyes were deep and brown,
                    And he heard again his mother's words;

                    "Don't wear your drawers to town, son
                    Leave your drawers at home, Sam
                    Don't wear your drawers to town."

                    Now Sammy he was strangely stirred, the lass was young and firm.
                    His blood began to heat within, and his loins began to squirm
                    His swelling boyhood tore through the foil, with a loud and crinkling sound
                    And he heard again his mothers words:

                    "Don't wear your drawers to town, son
                    Leave your drawers at home, Sam
                    Don't wear your drawers to town."

                    The comely cashier pushed a bell as toward her he did stray;
                    She heard the rustle in his jeans of tinfoil giving way!
                    And though he flashed his bestest smile, she gave him a cold frown;
                     But still he wished he'd heeded Mom:

                    "Don't wear your drawers to town, son
                    Leave your drawers at home, Sam
                    Don't wear your drawers to town."

                    His dreams of lust came tumbling , and he turned with wild alarm,
                    As  store detective Devereaux up and took him by the arm!
                    His dreams and his ambitions 'foiled', his tool and head hung down,
                    He realized what his mother meant:

                    "Don't wear your drawers to town, son
                    Leave your drawers at home, Sam
                    Don't wear your drawers to town."

HOT PANT EXPLOSION

Well, I've worked here a while
And seen lots of things
But the latest has me in a thrall
The memo that came 'cross my security desk said
No more tin foil panties in the mall

It's been narry a week
Since the notice came down
Causing all of this commotion
Victoria's Secret is secret no more
We've got us a hot pant explosion

No one believes me
The guys at the bar
Are laughing with me every night
Shoplifter's excuses
Can bring you to tears
Or cause you one hell of a fright

It's been narry a week
Since the notice came down
Causing all of this commotion
Victoria's Secret is secret no more
We've got us a hot pant explosion

The woman we caught
In electronics last night
Thought she was incredibly wise
Said the aliens might be
Reading her brain waves
(Sorry, m'am that one only works for the guys...)

It's been narry a week
Since the notice came down
Causing all of this commotion
Victoria's Secret is secret no more
We've got us a hot pant explosion

Brilliant -- Both of you! Two fantastic openers for this crinkly Challenge! Here are your (brand new, hot off the back of the truck, and personally shined for each of you) Silver B.L.O.B.s --

To Amos, B.O.T.F. for:

He sang as he drove into town,
He was feelin' might pleased
For underneath his Levis he
Wore Reynolds' BVDs
He stopped along the Interstate, his longjohns sagging down

Foil Bikini
(tune:Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini)

She was afraid as she sat in the hoosgow
She was as nervous as she could be
She was afraid she'd get thrown in the lock-up
All 'cuz of her new bikini!

"6, 8, 10 - she won't ever shoplift again!"

It was a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
That she wore for the first time today
a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
she only bought to enhance her foreplay


Well she put it on under her street clothes
Which they say was to help steal the loot
But the truth was her boyfriend likes metal
And thinks al-u-min-i-um's cute

"2, 4, 6, yes we know, it's kinda sick!"

It was a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
That she wore for the first time today
a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
she only bought to enhance her foreplay


She went into the store for some chocolate
It was one of those days don't you know!
But the lines were so long she just stashed it
Down her bra; then she started to go

"4, 6, 8, Never made it through the gate!"

It was a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
That she wore for the first time today
a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
she only bought to enhance her foreplay


The alarms they went off in a flurry
Sirens, lights and commotion galore
Security came running in a hurry
Handcuffed her ; took her down to the floor

"7, 5, 1 & 3 - can you say brutality?"

It was a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
That she wore for the first time today
a shiny little crinkly brittle foil wrap of a bikini
she only bought to enhance her foreplay


Now she's afraid as shesits in the hoosgow
For the law is against her you see
And what's more she has dropped her can opener
And she's fears that she now has to pee!

Well, since the attorney who drafted the bill was Steve Miller, this should be set to at least one Steve Miller tune.

Shopliftin' Ladies
tune; Rockin' Me Baby

Well I've been working real hard to stop shoplifting at stores
But it just keeps gettin' tougher every day
But I gotta do my part to find goods in the cart
With anti-theft tags that have not been disabled

I design hi-tech receptors used as shopping inspectors
That start wailing when you smuggle stuff out
But now shoplifters dare to wear foil-lined underwear
And it's made me start to tear my hair out

Can't catch those shoplifting ladies
Can't catch those shoplifting ladies
Can't catch those shoplifting ladies
Can't catch those shoplifting, shoplifting, lifting,
Baby baby baby it's those shop-
Shoplifting ladies
It's those darn shop-
Shoplifting ladies
Ooooo, ooooo, yeah.

They're down in Phoenix Arizona, and they're up in Tacoma,
Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A.
Wearing silver panties that my beams can't see through
So they can shoplift with impunitay

But now a law's been put through up in Coloradoo
That makes wearing metal panties a crime
If there's a crinkle or rustle in your skivvies or bustle
You'll be in the jailhouse doin' hard time

If you're a shoplifting lady
If you're a shoplifting lady
If you're a shoplifting lady
If you're a shoplifting, shoplifting, lifting,
Baby baby baby you're a shop-
Shoplifting lady
If you're a shoplift-
Shoplifting lady
Ooooo, ooooo, yeah.

Song of the Security Guard
(Tune:Shine on Harvest Moon)

Move on, Move on silver'd moon, keep walkin' by
I ain't had no theft here since January February June or July
No time is stole time, so stay oudoors, you goon
Move on, move on silver'd moon, - or cite you shall I!


The store is mighty dark, but still I surely see
Silver foil on your cheeks
Where good cotton cloth should be
If it's fun you seek
Lifting merchandise for which you didn't pay
Go find another place, foilbutt,
in which to make your play

Move on, Move on silver'd moon, keep walkin' by
I ain't had no theft here since January February June or July
No time is stole time, so stay oudoors, you goon
Move on, move on silver'd moon, - or cite you shall I!

Steal the good stuff, with high resale value
Steal the expensive, but these tags make me blue

I wanna line my libido, my BVD's
Line my libido, let that tinfoil cover me
I want to line my libido, can't catch me

Nicely done, Jack the Sailor!

Crinkle Briefs
tune: Jungle Love

I met you in Northcenter Mall Square
You said you'd arrested me before
But I didn't have any mall fare
I'd stolen from any mall store

You told me that that didn't matter
And then you burst out in a grin
"I'm going to arrest you," you stuttered,
"For your underwear made out of tin!"

Crinkle briefs, they're driving me mad, they're making me crazy
Crinkle briefs, they're driving me mad, they're making me crazy

You treat me like it was illegal
To wear these aluminum briefs
And then you tell me that we'll go
To the station; "Don't give me no grief"

I see a headline in the paper:
The governor signed a new law
No metal shorts allowed to drape her
No foil is allowed in her bra!

This here's the story 'bout Billy Joe and Bobby Sue
Two shoplifters with nothing better to do
Than try to find a way to beat the tag-detection crew
Here's what happened when they discovered what to do

They headed down to a K-mart in Denver
Billy Joe stayed in the car, and Bobby Sue he sent her
Bobby Sue got arrested when the security guard met her
Billy Joe put the foil on his buns

Singing, Go on, put the foil on your buns
Go on, put the foil on your buns
Go on, put the foil on your buns (oooooh Lord!)
Go on, put the foil on your buns

Stevie M. is a lawyer in Colorado
He helps the legislature in their law-writing battle
He ain't gonna let those laws get struck down by no Justice
He makes his living writing legalspeak prattle

Bobby Sue, whoa, she slipped away
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day
They bought some foil, hey, and now they get away
With stuffin' stuff into their pants every day

Singin' Go on, put the foil on your buns

To the tune of Jim JonesOh come listen to me story, boys
And hear me tell me tale
How the long arm of the law, me boys
Caught Jim Jones by the tail
And it swung me like a flail, me boys
Ten times around its head
And it flung me into jail, me boys
From whence I'm not yet fled

So take a tip before you slip into them metal knicks
The word is out, they know about our clever little tricks
Our clever little tricks they say their cover has been blown
So out the door you'll slip no more and safely home Jim Jones

It seems an honest thief, me boys
Is doomed to pay the price
I thought I'd fooled the law, me boys
They took me by surprise
With their scanners and their magnetrons
It's just like Dr Who
And now it seems they've cottoned on
To the likes of me and you

So take a tip before you slip into them metal knicks
The word is out, they know about our clever little tricks
Our clever little tricks they say their cover has been blown
So out the door you'll slip no more and safely home Jim Jones

I'm hanging up me gear, me boys
To never resurrect.
Me poacher's pocket, balaclava,
Stocking I'll neglect
Me dead-of-night, me out-of-sight,
Me in-out-and-away
And me underpants, that creaked by chance
And gave my game away

So take a tip before you slip into them metal knicks
The word is out, they know about our clever little tricks

Way to go, Challenge!rs! I knew this one would make your bells and whistles go off. I'm so glad to see that you're really getting a charge out of it, too. Here are your non-metallic virtual Silver B.L.O.B.s, guaranteed to set off alarms only on the Mudcat:

To MMario for:

Now she's afraid as shesits in the hoosgow
For the law is against her you see
And what's more she has dropped her can opener
And she's fears that she now has to pee!


AND for:

Silver foil on your cheeks
Where good cotton cloth should be
If it's fun you seek
Lifting merchandise for which you didn't pay
Go find another place, foilbutt,
in which to make your play

They're down in Phoenix Arizona, and they're up in Tacoma,
Philadelphia, Atlanta, L.A.
Wearing silver panties that my beams can't see through
So they can shoplift with impunitay


AND for:

I wanna line my libido, my BVD's
Line my libido, let that tinfoil cover me
I want to line my libido, can't catch me
Oh-ho, that's the solution


AND for the 'I-can't-get-it-outa-my-head:

Crinkle briefs, they're driving me mad, they're making me crazy
Crinkle briefs, they're driving me mad, they're making me crazy


AND for:

They headed down to a K-mart in Denver
Billy Joe stayed in the car, and Bobby Sue he sent her
Bobby Sue got arrested when the security guard met her
Billy Joe put the foil on his buns



To Jack the Sailor for his uplifting:

Cause I'm a lifter
I'm a shifter
I'm a shiner
And I'm a grifter
I put my music in my pants



To Faithful Departed for the very clever:

So take a tip before you slip into them metal knicks

How about Roger Miller???

Flail Me
Codger Miller

Well here I sit, gettin' ideas
Ain't nothing but a fool would dress like this
I don't want to work or toil
Gonads covered with aluminum foil

CHORUS:
Jail me, jail me
They oughta take a rope and flail me
The prisoners in the sell will nail me
Don't need to find a date for me

Just sittin' playing poker' with the rest of the guys
Bet ten cigarettes and I raised five
I lost my clothes but I got it made
The boys said they would take it out in trade.

(CHORUS)

They say prison is bad and it sure is hurtful
Tinfoil is hot and my balls are purple
Well I'm the most pop'lar pris'ner here
Because of my metal
Underwear

There are some truly amazing, riotously funny songs in this thread!! Sorry it took me so long to get around to writing anything (I hate it when life gets in the way of parody!).

In one of the recent SONG CHALLENGE! threads, MMario observed that I have a sick, twisted, demented mind... so it seems I now have a reputation to uphold! With that in mind, I submit two offerings for those of you with strong stomachs...


ONE TIN-FOILED REAR (The Legend of Grill E. Rack)
Tune: "One Tin Soldier (The Legend of Billy Jack)"

Listen, prisoners, to a story
Short on briefs but long on gore
'Bout a judge inside a courtroom
And the lad he hungered for.

In the mall, the boy sought treasures
Buried them beside his stones
In the secret undergarment
Made of tin-foil that he owns.

CHORUS:
Go ahead and baste him, neighbor.
Go ahead and eat him, friend.
Cook him with a flame or oven;
You can just apply heat to his end.
There won't be many rump roasts
Done the judge-man's way
On the wood he's warming up there:
One tin-foiled rear fries away.

When the young man left the mall, he
Was arrested by a guard.
Though his theft went undetected,
That kid's hard-on seemed too hard.

Came the day of trial and sentence
And the judge said, "For your crime
Of impersonating meat in
Reynolds Wrap, your ass is mine."

CHORUS:
Go ahead and baste him, neighbor.
Go ahead and eat him, friend.
Cook him with a flame or oven;
You can just apply heat to his end.
There won't be many rump roasts
Done the judge-man's way
On the wood he's warming up there:
One tin-foiled rear fries away.

Now the judge announced a cookout
At his house for all the courts
And they brought the prisoner to it
Still clad in his shiny shorts

Now they stood beside the boy who
Bragged of what his tattoo said,
Tore the foil and looked beneath it:
"Eat me"; that was all they read.

CHORUS:
Go ahead and baste him, neighbor.
Go ahead and eat him, friend.
Cook him with a flame or oven;
You can just apply heat to his end.
There won't be many rump roasts
Done the judge-man's way
On the wood he's warming up there:
One tin-foiled rear fries away.



STOCKY ROUND TIN HIDE (Colorado)
Tune: "Rocky Mountain High"

He was mourned by his mother; he was never heaven near,
Bummin', roamin' to Macy's and each other store.
He left honesty behind him, you might say he would scorn good men.
You might say he got things free through every door.

When he first wrapped foil around him, his mind was far away
On the load of stuff he'd steal ere long.
But the tin's all that he's hopin' will disguise the loot in there.
He keeps changin' pants 'cause tin foil can't stay strong.

But his Colorado Stocky Round Tin Hide
I've seen it strainin' far from inside
The crinkling at his waistline is louder than I can abide
Stocky Round Tin Hide (Colorado)
Stocky Round Tin Hide (Colorado)

He climbed the escalator, the mall's silv'ry stores below.
He saw merchandise as far as he could see.
And they say that he got greedy once: tried to steal a microwave
And it zapped his ass at full capacity

Then he walked into the lavatory to give vent to his screams
Seeking ways to put out all the flame.
His flight into the toilet electrocuted the poor man
Whose stupidity was what clearly brought him fame.

But his Colorado Stocky Round Tin Hide
I've seen it strainin' far from inside
Talked to guards who listened to it sizzle as it fried
Stocky Round Tin Hide (Colorado)
Stocky Round Tin Hide (Colorado)

Now his life is done and over, but our ears still know and hear
Of the simpleton who could not comprehend,
When he tried to stick a microwave down inside his tin-foil drawers,
That he should unplug the other end.

But his Colorado Stocky Round Tin Hide
I've seen it strainin' far from inside
I know he'd be alive today if he stole a microwaving guide
Stocky Round Tin Hide (Colorado)
Stocky Round Tin Hide (Colorado)

Come Line Your Pants
(tune: Swing Town)

Come line your pants.
Come line your pants
You can shoplift 'thout a second glance
You know the rays are scanning
And the guards are panning
So you've got to line your fanny
with tin foil

We've been lifting so much
Got the five-fingered touch
Come on baby, come on, tin-foil your pants

chicka-bum-sh-bum-bump
chicka-bum-sh-bum-bump
O-o, O-o-o, O-o-o-o.
O-o, O-o-o, O-o.

Come line your pants
Come line your pants
You may not get another chance
You know the rays are raying
And the cops are playing
And it's no good praying
Without tin-foil

Do you want to get caught?
We don't want to get caught!
Come on baby, come on, tin foil your pants!

chicka-bum-sh-bum-bump
chicka-bum-sh-bum-bump
O-o, O-o-o, O-o-o-o.
O-o, O-o-o, O-o.

The Ballad of the Sam Goody Shoplifter
tune: Snoopy vs. the Red Baron

(Chorus)
10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more
That shopliftin' fiend is rollin' up the score
80 CD's were the awful spree
Of the shoplifting champ of Sam Goody

After the turn of the century
In the North District Plaza Sam Goody
Came a steady trickle of unpaid CD's
Goin through the door in someone's BVD's

Down at the mall, a shoplifting chump
Reynolds Wrap plastered to her pale white rump
80 cd's walked out through that door
Of the hi-tech protected Sam Goody store

(Chorus)

Now Bob of the Mall Security Guard
Was a funny looking guy with an NRA card
He stuck to that store like a postage stamp
But the lifter nicked another (curses foiled again!)

(Chorus)

Now Bob he swore he'd get a foolproof plan
So he asked the high-tech geeks 'bout the door-guard scan
They told him about the tin-foil trick
While Bob was laughin, another CD was nicked

(Chorus)

Then the Colorado Legislature made a fix
And allowed Bob to apprehend all crinkle-rumped chicks
The lifter lifted once and then she lifted twice
Then Bob heard that tin-foil rustle in her panties, out o' sight!

(Chorus)

Ok, I couldn't resist tossing another log on the fire... Here's my cornballish take on the subject, 20 minutes and lots of bad rhymes. Enjoy!

Metal Liner (To the tune of "Jet Airliner")

Stealin' things, sure can be fun
Don't tell me it's wrong,
Hidin' it all in my fruit of the looms,
I've been stealin' it for so long

And security seemed so far away
But they caught me when I tried to run
Don't want to go back to jail again
So I've found a new way that it's done,

CHORUS
Oh, Underwear's metal liner
Won't let me get caught with the goods
Oh, Underwear's metal liner
Makes it hurt when I get wood

Goodbye to my testosterone
Goodbye to women who've lusted
I kept this foil on my boys too long
Ain't no use for a penis that's rusted
But my crotch is filled with goodies
that I stole from the mall, like this sweater
Tomorrow night, I got some shoes in my sights,
Sometimes your scrotum goes thru hell just to get some leather

CHORUS

Walkin round, scopin out
More things I wanna steal
I lined my drawers with more tin foil
And now I've Got a rash that don't wanna heal
And even though it saves me money
You know it hurts so bad that it's a real pity
And I don't-want-this-foil-wedged-up between my
Pair o' cheeks, I need drawers that'll fit me

CHORUS, REPEAT, FADE

My, my, my, my, my -- Have y'all been a busy bunch of beavers or what? ;-) Doesn't this Challenge! remind you of a kindergarten arts & crafts class??? You know, where the teacher says 'Let's all hunker down on the play-dough and tinfoil -- and Cissy, put your panties back on! -- or did I go to a really strange kindergarten? ;-)

Anyway, with shiny girded loins and a big smile on my face, here are your shiny Silver B.L.O.B.s for this creative craziness en masse:

To SharonA for the extra-spittake-making (especially since I'm the proud mom of three boy-o's):

When the young man left the mall, he
Was arrested by a guard.
Though his theft went undetected,
That kid's hard-on seemed too hard.


AND for the 'oh behave' lines:

Now his life is done and over, but our ears still know and hear
Of the simpleton who could not comprehend,
When he tried to stick a microwave down inside his tin-foil drawers,
That he should unplug the other end.


And to mousethief for the 'thrill-a-minute-making':

We've been lifting so much
Got the five-fingered touch
Come on baby, come on, tin-foil your pants


AND for the Spittoon Candidate of the Month:

Then the Colorado Legislature made a fix
And allowed Bob to apprehend all crinkle-rumped chicks
The lifter lifted once and then she lifted twice
Then Bob heard that tin-foil rustle in her panties, out o' sight!


And to LoopySanches for the raw, but funny:

And now I've Got a rash that don't wanna heal
And even though it saves me money
You know it hurts so bad that it's a real pity

Use the Quick Link (at the top of this page) to Áine's Mudcat Songbook, click on "Song Challenge! Winners", then click on "Song Challenge!s from the Past".

Also, I'm assuming that any new song for an old Challenge! should be posted to that Challenge!'s original thread, not to a new thread or to the current Challenge! thread; is that correct?

SHE WORE A ROLL OF TIN FOIL
Tune: She Wore A Yellow Ribbon
New words by Al Boyce 7/25/2001


Around her waist
She wore a roll of tin foil
She wore it 'neath her knickers
She crackled when she swayed
And when she shopped
She stored stuff in her tin foil
She'd stroll right past security
And wouldn't have to pay!

CHORUS1:
Have to Pay!
Have to Pay!
She'd stroll right past security and wouldn't have to pay!
Around her waist she wore a roll of tin foil
She'd stroll right past security and wouldn't have to pay!

Around the store
She stuffed stuff down her knickers
Her underwear was bulging
With the stuff she'd stole that day
And when she passed
Anti-shoplifting devices
They wouldn't beep or buzz and then
She wouldn't have to pay!

CHORUS2:
Have to Pay!
Have to Pay!
They wouldn't beep or buzz and then she wouldn't have to pay!
Around the store she stuffed stuff down her knickers
They wouldn't beep or buzz and then
She wouldn't have to pay!

And then one day
She stole some "Kopi Luwak"
300 dollar coffee from
A Starbucks-like cafe
The bag, foil-lined
Went likewise down her knickers
For coffee from a civet's butt
She shouldn't have to pay!

CHORUS3:
Have to Pay!
Have to Pay!
For coffee from a civet's butt she shouldn't have to pay!
And then one day she stole some "Kopi Luwak"
For coffee from a civet's butt
She shouldn't have to pay!

The klaxons clanged
The red lights started flashing
Security arrested her
They threw her in the pen
Foil stuffed in foil
Short-circuited the scanner
She calmly said (with pun intended)
Curses, foiled again!

CHORUS4:
Foiled again!
Foiled again!
She calmly said with pun intended, "Curses, foiled again!"
The klaxons clanged, the red lights started flashing
She calmly said with pun intended,
"Curses, foiled again!"

I've had the title and the tune for a week, but I haven't had a chance to do anything with them - until now.

The tune is 'Black Velvet Band'

Full Metal Bra

In Colorado Springs, Colorado
A McDonald's boy there I was bound
And many's the happy hour
I have spent in that fine little town
But bad misfortune o'ertook me
And now I have had to go far
Far away from my friends and my family
Betrayed by a full metal bra

Oh, one evening late as I rambled
Not meaning to go far at all
When I met with a feisty shoplifter
She was plyin' her trade in the mall
Oh, her eyes, they shone on the diamonds
And her smile twinkled bright as a star
'Come, give me a hand while I lift these stones'
Then she flashed me her full metal bra.

'All I ask is you make a distraction'
Then her fingers were nimble and quick
The diamonds had vanished quite clean away
As a sleight of hand trick it was slick
So we sauntered towards the shop exit
My blood hot, like any Hussar
For only I knew where the diamonds were
They were inside her full metal bra.

As we left there was quite a commotion
Bells rang, then a cop, gun in hand
Came up to my girl, and said to her
'Did you know metal underwear's banned'
Then her eyes, they shone like diamonds
'Oh, don't take me back to your car
Just give me a minute – yes, there's the clip'
She took off her full metal bra

This certainly caused a distraction
And a chance for some more sleight of hand
For the diamonds she slipped in my pocket –
They were sure worth a couple of grand
But fortune's ways, they are fickle
When the cop said 'I'll just frisk your friend'
And that's how I landed in jail, my boys
As I wait for my sentence to end.

In twelve months my sentence is over
Again I'll roam happy and free
To Colorado Springs, Colorado
Where I hope that girl still waits for me
For a year, it isn't too long, my boys
And a thousand miles isn't too far
To see once again that old feisty girl
As she slips off her full metal bra!

It took me quite a few days to bring myself to commit the blasphemy of writing a parody of a Joni Mitchell song (Whaddaya call that? An "un-original sin"?). But I have finally wrestled the angel of my better nature to the ground...


TIN HANES, Y'ALL
(Tune: "Tin Angel" by Joni Mitchell)
Pronunciation guide: Macy's = "may-SEES" (I cheated a bit, there)

Vanished, freed from window-bars:
Man-wished, greed-grown crap I seize.
Kept in rattlin' boxers are
Recession's much-loved luxuries:

Dead furs from a cross Macy's,
Clothes I stripped from T.J. Maxx,
Walden's spines and Staples' sheaves,
Tucked into a hinder-crack.

Guess I'll stow them all away
Right down some undies of blue-gray.


Dark with darker foods these be,
Rotted, old, unrinsed, used some,
Blue foil combined with stitchery
To walk in, crackling, tin by bum.

Steeled, I'll take, stuff pants, and flee!
I found some undies of blue-gray.


Dare not borrow them, 'cause I
Like the Hanes y'all made of tin.
What will stop them if I try
To put a whole Wal-Mart in them?

With my cheeks, how sweet can play
The sound: some undies of blue-gray. [crinkle crinkle]
I found some undies of blue-gray. [crinkle crinkle crinkle]

Thanks, Áine, not just for all them purty, shiny Awards but also for the links between the "Past" page and the past threads (thanks, again, to Trapper too!)!!!

Wow, now Trapper needs just one more award (the All-in-One Genius thang) to win the Whole Bag of Chips!! (Look out, Trapper, I'm right behind you with two to go! Man, that means I have to write ANOTHER song with 10 or more Challenge!s in it 'cuz my last one didn't qualify... that Áine is one tough cookie!!!)

Being relatively new to Mudcat, especially to Song Challenge!s--and having spent way too much time on a few recent Challenge!s, I might add--I decided to indulge my addiction further by looking into previous Challenge!s that I had missed.
I'm not gonna take the time to finish this one tonight (gotta sleep sometime), but here's my hook:

"Shoplifting With A Metal Thong"
(a parody, of course, of "Love, Lift Us Up Where We Belong.")

Hooray!!

But watch out ...

I played "catch up" and managed to complete all the challenge!s which Áine posted ... It became an obsession and that obsession has continued (as you can prob'ly see from the rate at which I post to current threads).

I may require medical assistance ... but hopefully not from Dr Testa (see challenge! 55).

Yeah, Derry, I've noticed your obsession recently, and I'm afraid it's helped fuel my own!

We've got to stop meeting like this!

derrymacash: Sorry, dmc, for whatever part I may have played in leading you down that long, slippery slope! *G* My own obsession with "catching up" led to a major songwriting burnout from which I'm still trying to recover. You wouldn't believe how many half-written Song Challenge! songs I have piled up, but haven't been able to complete. So I went on hiatus for a while, till I can learn to "let go" and just have fun with it again.

I shall return!

Sharon ....

So it was your fault was it?!

The origins of my obsession seem so far away in the mists of time I'd forgotten.

Anyway who says your meant to have fun with it? I thought it was all about blood, sweat, tears and sore fingertips ...?

Naw, Derry and Sharon,
It's neither. It's meant as an excuse for avoiding real work!

No More Shorts (Aluminum)

Words; Genie
Tune: Wimoweh

Chorus:
No more shorts
aluminum, aluminum, aluminum, aluminum,
No more bras
aluminum, aluminum, aluminum, aluminum,
aluminum, aluminum

At the market, the Denver market, the lyin' thieves are bright
Foilin' store dicks with metal undies, their loot hid out of sight.

Chorus

Near the Rockies, the thieves got cocky. Their lyin' ways we saw.
Startin' Sunday, no tin-foil undies designed to foil the law.

Chorus

Halt, there, darling, your drawers are crackling! Your lyin' thievin's done.
Your demeanor's a misdemeanor unless you're havin' fun.


Chorus

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!*
Whoa! Drop the tin lingerie!


*This is the Pete Seeger improvisational yell part.


Sharon, is your question kinda like "What is truth?"

I reckon time speeds up in the song challenge! demimonde. If a week's a long time in politics, then a day's an even longer time in here, as we anxiously await Áine to show up every now and then, bestowing favours on her acolytes.

And if that's the case then artefacts from last summer are antiques ... if not fossils!

Hey, Folks,

I'm back to writing my own songs, not so much time for this. But I'm still enjoying your stuff and will drop one in every now and then!

Cheers

Rob
