First entry in for the Ballad of Todd Carney

johnboy 5 August 2008 51

The first entry is in for our songwriting competition round one.

Those with keen memories will recall the theme this time around is “Todd Carney“.

And so I present to you Thumper and The KnuckF*ckles and their Ballad of Todd Carney, with help on the lyrics from Colin Dixon.

Entries via mp3 to john@the-riotact.com

UPDATED: And now you can enjoy it via YouTube (but the mp3 sounds better):

A bloke walks into a session bar in Belfast with a large cardboard box. Everyone looks nervous. The fiddle player finally asks nervously, “What’s in the box?”. The bloke says “It’s a bomb”. Everyone relaxes and the fiddle player says, “Thank Christ, we thought it was a concertina”.

And we’re done. Six is my limit on these gags. I wouldn’t want to try a diminished seventh.

A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor and sends him out. Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and shouts, “Get out now. You’re the seventh minor I’ve found in this bar tonight.”

How do you tell if the stage is level?

The drummer is drooling from both sides of the mouth.

You utter bastard.

I was just typing that…

It’s about the only one I know, sorry.

Oh wait…’How many drummer’s does it take to change a lightbulb? 5. One to change it and four to argue about how John Bonham could have done it better.’

What’s the definition of perfect pitch?
When you throw a banjo in the skip and it doesn’t hit the sides.

The difference between a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo and a banjo?

One is loud and obnoxious and the other is a bird.

How do you know when a drummer’s at your door?
The knocking gets faster, but he can’t find the key and doesn’t know when to come in.

What’s the difference between a Harly Davidson and a banjo?

At least you can tune a Harley Davidson…

A ten year old boy says to his parents: ‘When I grow up, I’m going to be a drummer!’
Parents’ reply: ‘Well, make up your mind; you can’t do both!’

Q: Why do drummers have slightly larger brains than horses?

A: So they don’t disgrace themselves during the parade.

Hey guys, it was all one take stuff…

And seriously, neither of us is a drummer 😉

That’s why I prefer drum machines to drummers – you only have to punch a rhythym into them once 🙂
