Let's write a blues tune = LOL!

Postby TC90 » Sun Jan 14, 2007 5:33 am

I really get a kick out of the humor and wit I read in this forum. I LOL!
Thought a good (maybe) way to bring more humor and wit out would be to write a blues tune through a thread. I'm takin' bets on how long it takes for "johnson" to be mentioned. :lol:

standard 12 bar IIII IVIV II V IV I I moderate shuffle
place v1, v2, v3 to keep track of verses, and your contribution in quotes.
If it gets to 3 verses, I'll write it up in song lyric form and someone can start another (or not)

v1 "I got a good woman,"

pretty original, huh :D

Keep on Bluesin'!

So, so far we have v1:

I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves something to be desired.
I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves something to be desired,

Alright, one verse down! :D

I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves somethin' to be desired,
Oh I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves somethin' to be desired,
If I could get that woman to changer her countin' ways,
I just might let her stay.

I was thinking

"If she don't learn modern Arithmatic,

she'll get her fat butt fired".

But hey, it doesn't HAVE to rhyme.

Nice lummox, I guess we have two versions now. :D

I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves somethin' to be desired,
Oh I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves somethin' to be desired,
If I could get that woman to changer her countin' ways,
I just might let her stay.

version 2

I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves somethin' to be desired,
Oh I got a good woman,
but her usage of roman numerals leaves somethin' to be desired
If she don't learn modern arithmetic,
she'll get her fat butt fired.


:lol: Keep it rollin'

verse 2 ???

She's really got a talent,
For playing on my Johnson.

For playing on my Johnson.
She's the best damn Johnson player

But you can't light me up, babe,
Just by playing on my Johnson.
I said you can't light me up, babe,
Even by slidin' on my Johnson.
If you really want to light my fire,
You ought to be flickin' my Ronson.

I'd keep that first verse handy to use as a LAST verse...

In the meantime,

" She's flicken' his bic lighter - not to smoke no

cigarette...

She's flicking that bic lighter, but that's one funny cigarette...

he's gonna Bogart my baby...and my name she's sure to forget. "

She can strike your matches, and
Send you up in flame,
She can strike your matches, and
Send you all up in flame,
I got plenty juice in my Ronson,
Lord I love her game!

I love her Roman accountin',
That memory always lingers,
I love her Roman accountin',
That memory sure always lingers,
Turnin my pages and then
Lickin, lickin, lickin at her fingers.
