image for Spoof Songwriter Releases Holiday Tune A bit undercooked.

Inspired by the satirical mastery from personal Spoof heroes like Jesus Buddha (Son of Mohammed Shiva), Monkey Woods, QM, J-Man and the ever enticing Madame Bitters, the little known singer/songwriter transplanted from Motown to the Cheese State has released a smash hit just in time for the holiday season.

A tribute to the Beatles in song, with updated lyrics to fill the mind's eye and nostrils with sights and smells of Thanksgiving day, the lyrics should be sung go the music of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". It would be based on American Football as well, a sacrilege, true.

"Perhaps too early in November", worried the author, but he remains well aware of the old and true adage of "time having wings", or "shit flying by too fast to duck", or whatever that old adage was. Anyway... Happy Holidays to all.

Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing

Picture yourself in a Holiday coma,
With beer in your left hand, and chips in your right.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
Your wife says she's baking the pies.

Your team's on the field and the turf looks so green,
The coach is in over his head,
Hope for a score but they turnover more,
And they're gone.

Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Oh.

Follow them down to the goal line and red zone,
Where touchdowns are rare, and entry denied.
Everyone wails when they go for a field goal,
You feel yourself wanting to cry.

The smells from the kitchen are starting to soar,
Waiting to pull you away.
The Turkey is roasting and gravy now pours,
And you're gone.

Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Oh.

Picture yourself at the table with family,
The stuffing is steaming, and sights fill the eyes.
Your team has lost, but you still count your blessings,
Giving thanks, is all that applies.

Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Turkey in the Sky with Stuffing
Oh yeah.
