I'm searching for the words to the parody "Mr. Soundman," written by Pat Donohue and sung to the tune of "Mr. Sandman." Can anybody help? Thanks.

You can hear the song (MR. SOUNDMAN by Pat Donohue) at ARCHIVED PERFORMANCE OF A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION: October 17, 1998. Lyrics & sound recording are HERE (direct link).

Thanks Masato. I heard Pat Donohue sing that song at a folk festival (Old Songs) a few summers ago, and was thinking of it again as I got a chance to be sound engineer for a concert for my local folk society.

This guy is soooo fabulous. When he does "No Likee Ickey Yucky Sushi" you are just gasping for breathing air. Oh, and did I mention his GUITAR PLAYING?!!???

Lyrics copied from http://www.prairiehome.org/performances/19981017/soundman.htm (with a few minor corrections made by me, based on the sound file on that page.)

MR. SOUNDMAN
(Pat Donohue)

Mr. Soundman, turn up the sound
So they can hear me for miles around.
Use all the volume that you can manage.
I wanna do a little hearing damage.
Mr. Soundman, you know what I need.
Keep on a-crankin' till their eardrums bleed.
I wanna terrorize this crowd.
Oh, Mr. Soundman turn me up loud.

Mr. Soundman, I'd like there to be
Lots less of everyone and lots more of me.
If you could turn me up a little bit higher
Till just before you blow your amplifier.
Mr. Soundman, cause me some pain.
I don't need earplugs or Novocain.
I ain't too good, but I ain't proud.
Oh, Mr. Soundman, turn me up loud.

Mr. Soundman, what did you say?
I must have blacked out. I think I'm okay.
You really got me with that high pitched squealin'.
I can't hear nothin' but I like the feelin'.
Mr. Soundman, you got it right.
My ears are ringin' for the rest of the night.
It's always up and never down.
Oh, Mr. Soundman turn up...
I wanna crash and burn up...
Mr. Soundman, turn up the sound.

Two great minds think alike. Shelly Posen from Toronto wrote this similar version. I've added the chords that I like to use.



Mr.Soundman

(C) Test, test, test, test, (Am) test, test, test, test, (Dm) test, test, test, test, (G7) test :||

Mr. (C) Soundman, (B7) mic me well, please

         (C) Soundman, (B7) please tweak the tone

Mr. (C) Soundman, ( Yesss?) (B7) I'll sound superb
(E7) If you just give me a (A7) touch of reverb
(D7) But not too much or I (G7) know I'll sound spacy
(C) And watch the bottom so it's (Ab7) not too (G7) bass-y
       (C) Soundman, (B7) I beg you, please
       (E7) When I'm on stage or re(A7)cording CDs
       Tran(Dm)sistor, tube, or solid (Fm) state
