Another run at turkeybend's title

Fresh off the perceived success of my first song parody, "Our Fans" ( http://www.cfl.ca/index.php?name=PNphpB ... ht=#194765 ), I figured its time to release the B-side to this 45. I figured with all of the perceived turmoil in Regina, it wouldn't be too long before someone came up with this one.

"Riderland of Confusion" (with apologies to Genesis and Disturbed)

I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Of Grey Cup decked in white and green
But I know it’s not an easy feat
‘Cept with Congi kicking his streak

Now, did you read the news today?
They say Roy Shivers has gone away
But I can see his fire's still alight
He never got his draft picks right

There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much wins to go around
Can't you see this is Riderland of confusion?

This is the world we live in
And we are the fans they're given
Show up and let's start trying
To make T.F. worth playing in

Oh, Sir Tillman, what did you do now?
Canning Danny's gone wrong somehow?
A man of steel, a man of power
Is losing control by the hour

This is the time, Mosaic’s the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much wins to go around
Tell me why this is Riderland of confusion

This is the world we live in
And we are the fans they're given
Show up and let's start trying
To make T.F. worth playing in

I remember long ago
When the Cup was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake of this madness, as we held it tight
So long ago

I won't be coming home tonight
This Rider Nation will put it right
The BOG's just making promises
That we know they'll never keep

There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much wins to go round
Can't you see this is Riderland of confusion?

Now, this is the world we live in
And we are the fans we're given
Show up and let's start trying
To make it a team worth fighting for

This is the world we live in
And these are the games we're given
Win them and let's start showing
Just where the Cup is going to

Bravo Bravo.....just changed the last verse
a little. Otherwise very well done.

Here it comes that dreaded November
and all our dreams go up in embers
Its not so bad this yr that passed
At least it was Burris who kicked our ass.

LOL

Recording contract Mongo recording contract! Well Turkeynuts (for Saskagro) it looks like the competition is pretty great! Mongo the Great strikes again!

You do realise, rw05, that you've hearby damnated yourself to Rider fans everywhere by insinuating the originator of the CFL-inspired song parody, a professed Rider fan I might add, is Jones'ing for "Rider Public Enemy #1."

Besides, everyone knows that the only guy who's got a serious case of "boner-itis" for her is KK. That's why ro and I are taking KK for a night on the town so he can see that when it comes to female football fans, he needn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. :lol:

A 45???????

You do realise that you are dating yourself. I wonder how many of our posters dont even know what that is

I know what a 45 is, does any one remember 78's? Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey.

So Mongo is giving Turkey a run for Canadian Idol....hmmm... Stay tuned!

Yeah, I know I'm dating myself with the reference to "a 45." But I do remember some still existing back in the 1980s; before cassettes became the main recording medium at the time.

Now, cassettes have made way to CDs, and CD singles have died and digitial mp3 downloads have taken their place. But it could be worse: I could've overdated myself and made reference to 8-tracks. :lol:

That's overdating? Geez.....the old yellow schoolbus I used to take to school still had an 8-track when I was in kindergarten.....seriously.....I remember listening to Meatloaf.....always thought it was such an odd thing to name oneself.....

Somehow this is the last place where one might picture experiencing "Paradise By A Dashboard Light", but when you got Otto driving the bus on The Simpsons, maybe its not that far fetched. :lol:

Would you beleive I sold an 8 track player and 5 tapes 6 years ago when I cleaned out the garage. I still have my old 78's downstairs in the basement. I should check out those antique stores in Fort Langley sometime.

ask your students if they know what it means to sound like a broken record

Knowing jm's students, the only way a record could be broken is either by scratching it too much, or by the illegal use of performance-enhancing suppliments. :lol:

Nah.....my students generally know what a broken record is, because I use the phrase all the time.... :stuck_out_tongue:

And her students get tired of those scratched Village people songs!

Pffttt.....Village People and their one and a half "hits".....c'mon.....we listen to a little SRV in my classroom.....lol

SRV? :lol:

Yup.....

Ok JM02 stop with the Kanga tactics here who is SRV?

Took me a while before I Googled it.. Stevie Ray Vaughn

Wow Really! Never heard of him! But then again the kids JM02 teaches may have!
