Subject: Lyr Req: 12 Step Parody
From: GUEST,Annie
Date: 08 Apr 03 - 12:59 PM

Looking for a good natured parody for a 12 step program. Tune should be easily recognized in US and hopefully evoke the desired response of laughter and good will. Any suggestions?

Annie

I'm going off to look further, but a member of the "New England Christmastide Musicians" based in Rhode Island has an original one that's hysterical to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas.

You might try to get an email address for and write to Jon Campbell. I saw him with the Christmastide folks back in December (no surprise there...) and he's quite a cool character. I don't know him, or his email address, but the song is great--

one damp basement
two bumperstickers
three cups of coffee
four ????
SER-REN-IT-TEE
etc...

or something like that. I'm definitely not sure I recall it right.

Click here for an ad for a tape cassette that contains "12 Steps Of X-Mas" by Jon Campbell.

Click here for an ad for a concert and CD called "The 12 Steps of Christmas and Other Holiday Fare."

All:

Thanks so much for helping! I'll try to order the CD from the info Jim provided and I look forward to Owlkat's composition. I too tried to write a couple but couldn't get beyond lackluster.

The first 11 steps can be summed up in the 1st verse. Ignore them. They don't mean shit other than to try to beat you down into a miserable parody of what you once were. This is the funny verse.
In the second verse you just STOP doing whatever it is that you perceive as the problem. This is the verse with the moral.

Yea, John, I felt that way as recently as this morning, but I think I'm back. It feels good to be living in the solution again. It's hard being human. Sometimes, I hate it. I would go with the first verse being about the first step and it would be a jingle that you love to hate and you could just kill the next person who walks by humming it - and now you can't get it out of your head!!!! Anyway, then I think the next verse would be about the next 11 steps and funny. Lucky are we who laugh at ourselves for we are always amused.

Thanks to these posts, I already tracked it down. It's on a great CD by the way. I haven't written anything yet. The inspiration moved on to the next thing whatever that was. In time. In time.
