Pie In His Eye (Song Parody by Rick London c2011) sung to Alan Parson’s Eye In The Sky

July 20, 2011


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Dedicated to my DW Lee London-Hiller

 

  On thin ice Rupert Murdoch treads,
And puts News Of The World To Bed,
Hard to say goodbye to media whores,
Rupert and James are such dismal bores,
Walking greed,
Turned phone hacking pros,
With life dedicated to separating America into left and right wing.
Cable news went from 24/7 ceiling debt,
To Mr. Marbles’ pie thrown at Rupert’s head,
Newscorp employees jumping ship from no espirit de corps
How could they take anymore?
Did he hack me?
A pie in his eye,
His young wife just got a slight Ding.

(chorus)
How ’bout that pie in his eye,
Not long after Rebekah Brooks resigns
No more media old school,
Rupert’s no fool, he can cheat you blind,
That’s how he became a media fat cat,
He’ll take all he can find (sleeping with you)
He really doesn’t mind (if you sing the blues),
He’s lower than slime (the sewers are full of this type news)
His testimony’s maligned.
His ethics are undefined.
He’s technically out of his mind,
And any fool who walks in his door,
Won’t work there long before leaving.
Some believe his lies awhile,
But all his signs are deceiving

Small People (The BP Song) C2010 by Rick London

June 17, 2010

 Small People Got Nobody (The BP Song)
by Rick London C2010 to the tune of
Randy Newman's “Short People”

                                                  For My Wife Lee Hiller-London


  We got oily hands & birds that can't fly, 
 All from BP's (Big People) press release of lies,
  Some beaches still clean but its a nightmare underneath
 Who knows the disease lurking at 5000 feet.

{Refrain}
 Well, BP (Big People) loves their small people,
        Creates escrows for small people, 
         Just when we thought BP had no more bull, 
                       They say the coast is clear.

      On Facebook all BP has no feedback, just replies, 
              They won't tell us Louisiana oyster beds are dry,
  We from the Gulf know they care not if we live or die, 
          It's not our parent's world.

    We're small people just worker bees, 
                       Help us God above. 

     There's a few crab legs left but taste like petrol, 
  By the end of this no tellin' how much BP 'll owe, 
 Be sure to lawyer up and don't fall asleep
      Hayward wants his life back, what a nasty little creep.
 They try to bar us from our beaches; have they lost
their minds?
  I think all the execs outta be servin' Parchman
 Prison time.
