Is it sacrilegious to change Waylon's lyrics?

Recommended Posts

Okay then – Though I understand it is more or less allowed to modify classic lyrics, I'm not sure E-minor7 is the person to do it.

I tried to play around a little and things went straight in the fence.

See if you can guess which tunes I messed with here :

A -

 

Hey Mister Tangerine Man squeeze a fruit for me

I am thirsty and I need a drop of orange-juice

Hey Mister Tangerine Man squeeze a fruit for me

in the jingle jangle morning I wan't health in my booze

B -

 

Simon sing along with Garfunkel

take some words and chords and give them thoughts

Praise the Lord

I was always waiting for you 2 to re-record

P&A

P&A

World is in need of your act today

 

C -

 

I can't get no - higher action

I can't get no - higher action

Though I try and I try and I try

I can't get no -

 

When I'm playing my guitar

and that buzz comes from the second fret

and it's tellin' me more and more

about some hopeless situation

caused by useless intonation

I can't get no – no no no

 

- - - - - - - -

 

 

I told you - this is high risk territory !

My wife recently mentioned she did not like the line, "firm feelin' women," either.

 

So I'm thinking "Good Hearted Women," or, "Firm Minded Women." I prefer the former to the latter.

I'd forgotten about this post, and I really don't see anything wrong with a slight lyric change like you suggest. Now that you're back to playing GG, I would enjoy hearing a sound clip or two of your rendition if you have em layin' around
