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

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]

“140 Ways To Tweet Another” by Rick London c2011… Sung To The Tune Of Paul Simon’s “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover”

Too Much Twitter Information (Click To Enlarge) by Londons Times

 

My laptop & me are under the goose down on my bed,

I take a sip of some bitter green tea.

My choices Twitter or AOL News,

Before deciding I get up & go pee,

I choose Twitter see a few con artists & a drug smuggler,

And a life coach offering an amazing Ebook publishing lessons for almost free,

There must be 140 ways,

Whoops here comes an iconoclastic business sabateur

Says he’d like to serve us if we weren’t so morally unfit,

And quite rude,

I posted my site link will it land on Google or Bing?

If it stays on Twitter then then for sure I’m screwed,

I guess I have arrived….Now have more followers than self-help books on my shelf

So much Twitter drama is there ever not a feud?

There must be 140 ways to tweet another,

I’m not a celeb, and don’t know @JustinBeiber & not his brother,

I’m not @Glennbeck or Tommy Smothers

[CHORUS:]

Enter Twitter stage left a few wanna be PR flacks,

And a few running male enhancement scams,

Some usual suspects sharing bathroom habits that annoy,

Another paid trending topic by @IMDiddy.

A wannabe film critic telling me Ishtar is “a must”

A New England counselor insisting I’m using Twitter as a crutch,

Giving me a cyber-diagnosis for free,

And some more bourgeoisie.

Some there are bitter, others sweet as Bordeaux.

That some have no IQ has been clearly preordained.

Do you have money or social influence a cyber-philantrophist needs you, handing out cheap cards & a crash course in kung fu.

He’ll meet you at a Hyatt bar for tweet up but his debit card is declined again

But there’s time to chat,

About a charity of financial gain,

Or type 140 ways to tweet another.

 

In case you don’t know what is wrong,

From what is right,

Don’t smoke and claim to be green,

Or attend @GreenExpo drinking a Sprite.

But use highbrow words like “Chi”,

Don’t let too many know if  you lean left or right,

Because there’s 140 ways to

tweet another.

Find the facebook status has changed from “engaged”  to “looking” on the page of your (former) lover.

“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.

Shark Folk Singers by Londons Times Cartoons (Click To Enlarge)

The Constitution’s sacked, my rights are gone,

The X-ray machine makes my boxers look like thongs,
Oh God I hope that’s not a pimple on my thigh.
They’ve see right through everything I’ve worn,
No more lax rules, a perverted culture is born,
Enough radiation to make Goliath die.

The TSA Agent & I don’t share the same esprit.
Have no idea if he wants to make whoopie,
Nonetheless, he’s now massaging my toes.
I’m grievin’ on a jet plane,
With total strangers that sinned,
What is this some flying pole dance show?
I’m ready to leave but security’s going downtown
My neurosis I’d like to drown,
With Nude Vodka, but they’ve already seen my everything,

Their Xray machine show’s I’m a Jew,
It’s taking hours, they’re still not through,
They’ve  touched so much, I expect a wedding ring.

All this foreplay is not for me,
Embarrassing, my kidneys are filled with pee,
I guess I’ll stand here, and just go,
Then I’ll be grievin’ on a jet plane,
Now they’re friskin’ me for a bobby pin,
Oh Gross, this guard’s in afterglow.

Guitar Solo

Now I know I’m coming unglued,
Can’t remember if I removed that secret tatoo
Here comes the scent of radioactive decay,
Not made of steel on the screen are my buns,
While I’m here remove these kidney stones,
Don’t touch my junk, is all I have to say.

So if you kiss me stay miles away from me,
Don’t even think of waiting for me,
You’ll lose an ear just like Vince Van Gogh,
Cause I’m grievin’ on a jet plane,
Not going back to that inequity den,
I hope you stepped in where I go.

I’m grievin’ on a jet plane,
Pre takeoff’s such a sin,
One is touching much too slow.

“BP Sad Company” by Rick London Sung To “Bad Company”

Sad Company” (By Rick London c2010) To The Tune Of “Bad Company” by “Bad Company”

Dedicated To My Wife Lee Hiller-London

Click To Enlarge

No mackerel shad, thanks to BP,
Dying dolphins, struggling in your greed.

A company so badly run,
Killed our whales with no whaling gun,
Oh 500 miles of tar balls on the sand,
Thanks to BP,

An Iranian Oil Company,
They first tried to deny,
Persian Oil Company,
All the wildlife died,
What a way to die.

Coast Guard & BP Patrols,
The Gulf Coast is appalled,
You claim to be British but your stocks are in Tehran,
Do you realize you’re hellbound?
At Grand Isle you create quite a flame
And Pensacola Bay.

BP needs to leave,
They gave it their best try,
It’s a sad company,
11 men have died.
All the fish have fried
SOLO

Oil grab,
This corrupt company,
All toxic debris,
Everything has died,
Remove your oil bit,
Sad company, Oh yeah—yeah
BP’s a sad company,
Everything has died.

4 generations of family business grieve,
Your heads in the sand,
BP needs to leave,
The entire Gulf & Bay,
Once clean now dirty,
Hold the tartar sauce,

Yeah,
BP’s a sad company,
Spill prevented with drilling mud.

Dedicated to my wife Lee Hiller-London

I sit in front of cable news with my wife,
Was everything a man could want to do. And watch how BP puts the screws,
I could never see For all the wildlife & those who fish there is not tomorrow.

Black sand…Isn’t it time for BP to depart?
Now that the birds are a gooey brown.
They say August or if storms, in the spring.
They polluted the entire Mississippi Sound.
How will they bring back our white sands?
If we criticize they just chagrin.
Please help return, the sea turtles, and all that swim with fins.

Whatever BP touches once healthy is now diseased,
Even the endangered sperm whales are fried.
Those who once worked will now have to do a lifetime of borrowing……

And, Why won’t BP take Deep Horizon apart,
Just count its losses and leave town.
Forgot politics this is not left or right wing.
You’re thin veneer TV campaign does not confound.
Will we ever get our beaches back to tan?
Will we ever again see a brown peli-can,
How much longer does BP think we’ll just take it on the chin?

“Oil On The Water” by Rick London To Benefit Gulf Causes

June 25, 2010

Oil On The Water” (Another BP Song by Rick London) To The Tune Of Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water”

Trapped Brown Pelican: Click To Enlarge

Dedicated To My Wife Lee Hiller-London

Panama City Beach was like snow,
Now thousands tarballs in a line,
Love Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile,
You covered Mobile Bay with slime.

The oil zapped the fish & the birds,
Dispersements on the ocean’s ground,
BP’s spokesman said it was about done,
But the destruction had just begun.

Oil on the water,
Rig’s fire lights the sky
Oil on the water.

Eleven men down.

Now we know Hayward is a louse,
After that Tony yachted around,
Once home tomullet  snapper & sea trout,
Now nowhere to be found.

Pelicans and other birds,
Had to find another place,
But for many time was running out,
Drenched in oil from wings to face.

Oil on the water,
Rigs fire lights the sky, Is BP learning?
Oil on the water,

No wildlife around,
No dolphins play.

Within a few days the Gulf was a living hell,
More than any living thing could bare,
I watched the news with my bride and cried,
What once was is no longer there.

Much of the wildlife found is now dead,
A few lucky ones found their way to a vet,
And BP wonders why we’er pi$$ed,
Not to worry BP we’ll never forget, how you spilled….

Oil on the water,
And told us all those lies,
Oil on the water.

Oil everywhere, everywhere

Your rig burns, still now,
And you don’t like media around,
Gulf small business better be your concern, yeah
BP When will you ever learn. Just debris.
Eleven drowned.

Grand Isle water’s totally brown.

Blunder With The Rolling Stone (Song Parody by Rick London c2010) To The Tune Of Dr. Hook’s “Cover Of The Rolling Stone”

click to enlarge

Ah ha ha I believe anything. Hey StanLAY McChrystal… from the military you’re barred.
Looks like your career’s reached a bit of a plateau,
(The Prez has decided to replace you with a real hero General Petraeus)
The military has a conduct code you’ve always known,
I’m sure you’ve gotten thrills, think of all the kills from all the soiree’s you’ve flown,
But you gave up your pistol, just to get your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone, we understand power is your lover,

Stoned. Did you smoke much pot with your mother?

Stoned, is there anybody left to face?

Since your Blunder with The Rolling Stone,

(Don’t let me instill fear,  Stan)

You had the NATO and U.S. Forces from the Navy To The Marines,
Is that guy’s name “Bite Me”?
Time to sell that limousine.
And now your fate is sealed and signed,
Cause you’re career’s already blown,
Because you spout fiction, due to power addiction to the reporter at the Rolling Stone

Looks like from here on out you’ll be living undercover
Alone, Think you could move back in with your mother?
Gone, was it worth it just to find your face,

On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

TAKES ITS TOLL!
(Stan time to stop your bull)

With the Pat Tillman cover-up you really got a reprieve,
You kept the feds at bay.
We wonder of all your cover-ups, a lot or just a few?
Doesn’t matter now Lady Justice is about to weigh,
You’re runnin’ out of friends, on Capital Hill, ya know the type that money can buy,
Like Dylan once asked “Hows it feel to be all alone?”
In the limelight was it worth it being that demure?
When you blundered with The Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone- Better hope it don’t make it to the cover,
Your stoned, don’t you wish you were someone other,
The Prez is on the phone..about being stupid with The Rolling Stone.

Don’t you wish you’d just gone bowling?
Or found yourself a long-term lover?
You know you’re really just too sloppy

Since you blundered with the Rolling Stone, .

(Man, you look like a cow, just being a grunt, criticizin’ everybody. Shoot.)

We’ll Make It Right (By Rick London c2010) BP Song

June 17, 2010

We’ll Make It Right by Rick London c2010 Song Parody To the Tune of Manfred Mann’s “Blinded By The Light”

We’ll make it right, does BP think we’re all douche bags, the tv ads are getting trite,
We’ll make it right, we know its a ruse, BP attorneys prepping for a fight.
We’ll make it right. Tell that to the pelicans that can’t move, or fish that died in their plight.

Incompetent riggers cause emotional triggers, BP said 1000 barrels a day. We smelled a rat.

Even Halliburton Told-er but BP was feeling bolder, then drilled deep into the ocean ground

Then in a warm Gulf summer breeze, 11 men were nowhere to be found

Even though BP said Deep Horizone was surely sound.

They broke every law,
Their spilling greasy juice to the Gulf Coast was such a blight,
We’ll make it right. They said dispersants would make such a pretty sight.
We’ll make it right. Drilled in spite of engineer’s red light.
We’ll make it right. I’ve got a nifty British accent so you know I’m so polite.

BP’s got 10-minute trained skimmers, to get the oil off our dinner. Now we fish from rivers & lakes

BP might hang around & do right what they’ve done wrong, after all 20 billion’s at stake,
But don’t start feeling sorry, they don’t have to borrow, 2 billion a month is their take,
So Want My Life Back Hayward was feeling kind of wayward, and acting like he was sure on our side,
But with baby blues a cryin’, I’m tellin’ you Tony’s lyin’, he’s about to take us for more of a ride,

They say we must be….
Blinded by their lies, while they rot our labor’s fruits in the middle of the night,
We’ll make it right.

Maybe if we’re lucky Shell or Conoco/Phillips
Will acquire BP, before they fall out of sight.
To clean up this toxic waste site.

—— guitar solo ——

Maybe its time we get out of the oil biz,
And look for alternative energies like coconut fizz
Plumes of oil are all ove The Gulf thanks to the BP plumes
Please make it clean again from Florida to Louisiana and good Ole Ms.
We’ve got an addiction to 10W30 & its making air dirty & you know we must be released,
There are no rehab clinics, we’ve got to bear and grin it, and get rid of the ugly beast.
The resources are there, hybrid cars from here to France, we just need someone to finance,
It sounds so forlorn to rely on oil from corn but someone’s gotta give it a chance,
It’s clean and safe and no oil to muck around.

BP said they……
Will make things right…..they’ll put a bandaid on it and get on a British Airways flight.
We will make it right. And if you believe us we’ll sell you a rig at Grand Isle late one night.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
{the following two sections are sung simultaneously}

(7 Times)) ~ We will make it right.~Every grain of sand will be whiter than white
~ We will make it right,

2) ~Repeat 1st Verse

Any employee that squeals on BP will get fired

They’re using intimidation, fear and fright.
