Songwriting competition: The Ballad of Todd Carney

By johnboy - 25 July 2008 36

So I had this idea, and we’re going to see how it goes.

Every couple of months we’ll take a topical issue and put it out to the plethora of musos who read this site to write a song about it. They’ll produce an mp3 file which the rest of you can listen to and vote for, eventually declaring a winner. If it all goes particularly well we might try and come to agreeable terms and produce a compilation we can flog on iTunes for fun and profit.

And so, songwriters of Canberra, your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write “The Ballad of Todd Carney”.

Our own trove of Carney data is here.

UPDATED: El has noted that Dave Chapelle has an early entry.

But I’d like to think the local talent can come up with something better.

What’s Your opinion?

piss on my leg and tell me that you love me,
i’ll piss on your leg and tell i love you,too
i love to have you urinate
upon me, ’cause i’m your mate
you blow me away

piss on my leg and tell me that you love me
i’ll piss on your leg and tell you i love too
nuns can be all
barring that we’ll have a ball
you piss on my leg; i’ll piss on you leg
and we’ll all – go play league…

(gravest apologies to m. python)

Hehe, that’s cool…

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what young Todd done
Don’t Carney on the patrons there
In the pub at All Bar Nun

*snicker*

(‘House of the rising sun’)

There is a house in the ACT
They call the All Bar Nun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know he’s one
His rehab was a failure
Still acts like he’s fifteen,
Pissed all over another man
In the Bar’s latrines..

Let’s get some actual songs done before we get ahead of ourselves shall we?

And as noted there are many other Canberra compilations.

Granny 5:08 pm 26 Jul 08

*heh heh heh*

… not to mention that other oldie but goodie: ‘He’s gonna piss on you again’….

What shall we do with the drunken raider
What shall we do with the drunken raider
What shall we do with the drunken raider
What shall we do with the drunken raider
earlie in the morning

put him in the gutter and pee right on him!
put him in the gutter and pee right on him!
put him in the gutter and pee right on him!
put him in the gutter and pee right on him!
earlie in the morning

press reports up she rises! etc

Thumper said :

Just an idea JB, what about getting tracks from local bands and releasing a compliation called RiotACT- Songs from a Capital

Or something like that?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before (or I’m missing something — always a high likelihood of that) but something very similar has already been done with a series of CDs called ‘Caught in the A.C.T.’, has it not?

Dave Chappelle clip – hilarious! Still laughing ….

Granny 1:16 pm 26 Jul 08

LOL

Thumper, you have missed your true calling.

There was a wild colonial boy
Todd Carney was his name
He came one day from Goulburn
for to play a game

But once they’d won things went amiss
at a place called all bar nun
and on a person he did piss
and laughed as if it were fun

el 12:45 pm 26 Jul 08

Dave Chappelle already has an entry for this competition!

For acting like the dunny man.
