Is Rupert On My Telephone (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) Sung To How Long Has This Been Going On by Ace

July 19, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              For my DW Lee Hiller-London

Is Rupert hacking Hugh Grant’s cell phone?
What’s that clicking on my Smart Phone?
In parliamentary court Rupert sits with his son,
        Spinning their phone hacking scheme,
Surely Louise Mensch has her suspicions,
And Piers Morgan’s new book shows he has a hacking degree.

Rupert better prepare to be a “has been”,
As the scales of justice weigh,
He’s had  years of riding by shark fin,
           Now stuck on the dock of the bay.

What’s that clicking on my telephone?
Is Rupert on Hugh Grant’s cell phone?    

(Musical interlude)

With all of your courtroom legal guns,
You’ll need more than The Dream Team,
You spin and old story till its spun,
Parliament’s not quite as dumb as he seems
Rupert’s defense is looking a bit slim,
He says his employees betrayed,
Rebekah Brooks is his Stevie-Nicks wannabe broody hen.

Is News Of The World hacking my cell hone?
Is that click Rupert’s listening on?
Is he a kindergartener overgrown?
Is that Rupert on my phone?
Looks like Fleet Street is gonna be a Murdoch-Free Zone

Rupert’s Gone Away (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) To The Tune Of Otis Redding’s Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay

July 19, 2011

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Dedicated To my DW Lee Hiller-London

 Rupert Murdoch’s career is done,
            He even had to close The Sun

Committed the 7 moral sins,
Hope he’s notified his next of kin…

                                                                                                                    [Chorus]
He’s hacked over a thousand cashes,
And has the instincts of a bird of prey,
We wish Rupert would just go away,

                                                 He just wastes our time.                                                                                                                                                          

Whistle blower had a self-inflicted trauma,
the   Swimming with handcuffs at the bottom of  King Edward’s Bay

                                  “Cause he had nobody to write for,
                                                                                    And Rupert’s prosecutors plan an Aussie buffet,

                                                                                                                                                                                                             Just Busted…..

                                                                                                                                                                                                            [Chorus]

Soon he’ll be asking for some spare change,
He’s hacked enough to know Hugh Grant’s middle name
And you thought media was run by the Jews,
                          Not really, but those who do, run it a bit more sane.


  This old media dinosaur has joined The Flinstones,
While the whistle blower’s corpse turns to bones,
If News Corp should soon be gone….
We can visit Rupert in a comfy rest home,
                           Another media bust

                                                                                         [Chorus]

                                                                                             [Whistle]

“Yes You’re Gay” To The Tune Of The Beatles “Yesterday” by Rick London c2010

December 9, 2010

 

Yes, you’re gay,

The Tea Party feels you need someone else to lay,
Throwing Deuteronomy in your face,
Oh they believe you can be changed.

Marriage Decrees,
Is something only for straights you see,
Only straights get to make whoopie,
Get used to 2nd class its what you be.
Why your genetic code’s what it is, I don’t know,  I cannot say

Why Tea Party thinks you sin, Ken Mehlman may have something to say.

Yes you’re gay,
Now the right wing they keep dossiers,
On sexual actions that you might purvey,
They don’t believe you are born gay.

Why they think like this, that sodom is the San Francisco Gay Parade
Maybe you shouldn’t have worn that thong, you’ve been outed the Tea Party wayyyy.

Yes your gay,
In the closet you must quietly play.
Maybe one day you’ll have your day, when the Tea Party has gone away,
And then your gayness you’ll proudly display.

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

Shirley Sherrod by Rick London c2010 Sung to Que Sara

Shirley Sherrod by Rick London c2010 To Tune Of Doris Day’s “Que Sara”

Dedicated to my wife: Lee Hiller-London

Shirley Sherrod (Click To Enlarge)

Under a bus she was unfurled,
A story bigger than BP,
Fox News, White House NAACP in perfect pitch,
Trying to oust Shirley.

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod
In the land of the brave and free,
“Fire her’ yelled O-Rei-Leee

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
We love you Shirley.

60’s civil rights this is indicative of,
While we felt we’d progressed instead,
Now your signature has value on Ebay,
We watched as you bled.

Bill O'Reilly (Click To Enlarge)


Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
A story fueled by Fox News greed,
NAACP should take heed,
Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
Your vision we all should see.

A voice to be heard was your only plea,
A hunt in search of a witch,
Obama finally texted Shir-ley
Andrew Breitbart grins with glee,
Then YouTube & Fox TV,

Barack Obama (Click To Enlarge)

Shirley Sherrod, Sherrod,
Victim of hubris of the bourgeosie.

“12 Gauge Shotguns In National Parks” by Rick London (Sung to Chicago’s Saturday In The Park)

March 3, 2010

12-Gauge Shotguns In National Parks” (by Rick London c2010) to the tune of Chicago’s “Saturday In The Park)

Dedicated to my DF/Love Lee Hiller who has a petition to keep loaded firearms out of National Parks which will be presented to the President 7 Congress. Please take a few moments to sign it. CLICK HERE TO SIGN.

12 gauge shotguns now legal in National Parks,
Face to face or even drive-by
Loaded shotguns in National Parks
NRA asked & Obama complied.
Will you get pinged by a zooming missile zing?
A Dick Cheney wet dream.
A farewell to life song.
Eicay varee’, eisee’ nardee’,
Where’s my case of Schlitz? (belch)
The one packing heat is sublime
Do we need semi-automatics to keep the beavers damned?

Now we’re safe from dawn until dark,
Now we’re safe from butterflies, or chipmunks that are on the sly.
Noah sailed on his ark,
The animals were all his allies,
People always smiled in the valley of Hot Springs,
The new laws a bit too bizarre,
The human is the only species here that mauls,
Bring a sick bag before I hurl,
Quick duck there’s a bullet,
How will our furry friends act with this new slime,
In my yard gun play..whose gonna pay?

Sloe gin guzzlers will turn my forest into a roadkill cafe,
I never thought I’d be betrayed by my home, the USA.
Ol’ Chevy trucks riding mountains with dual exhausts,
All is fair game at our cost, crow or doe.

So get out of the park, before it gets dark,
It’s bound to light up like Fourth Of July.
No more funny days in the park,
Just our wildlife with a bullseye mark.
The park is our back yard,
But he’s sick and wants it, really wants it,
His gun is so phallic,
There’s long been a place in hell for those who commit this crime,

Please stay out of my backyard and keep your gun at home,

I might not be as nice as Nurse Ratchett. Can you dig it?

Cartoonist Rick London Writes Beatles Parody Song “Diversity” To “Yesterday”

July 28, 2009

Yesterday” by The Beatles (Song Parody by Rick London. c2008) “Diversity”

beatles fine fine fine 9999999

Diversity,
Once other races seemed so far away,
Now together we work, socialize, and pray,
Oh the richness of diversity,

Bigotry,  Is for the ignorant who grins with glee,
We’re a land of white, black, Jew, Gentile, Moslem, Irish, French and Portuguese,
Diversity, is here for free,

America,
Must evolve, if not, will stay the same,
You’ll regret,
beatles album cover micheleHaving no swan song ’till you opt for diversity.
Diversity,
Regardless of one’s creed or race,
You may live a closed mind cabaret,
But you’ll long for diversity.

Every creed,
Every creed in the military, has risked its life for diversity,
Once misled,
I felt something wrong, it was that I longed for diversity.

Diversity,
All your hatred seems to drop away,
It’s a never-ending love buffet,
Oh, I believe in diversity.
Mm-mm-mm-mm.mm.mm.mm.

In addition to being a songwriter, London is founder of Google’s #1-ranked offbeat cartoon Londons Times & numerous funny gift shops including The Rick London Collection.
