META: "Songs From Bolivia", Volume 1

Submitted by LSAClassOf2000 on June 26th, 2016 at 4:42 PM

I've sat here pondering this particular OT season for sometime now and struggling to come up with an occasional feature that isn't too hard for me to find time to do, and then seeing the last couple days of threads in particular, it struck me that I could put a few of my talents to work in a series of self-conscious blog parodies written to the melodies of various tunes.

Indeed, I challenge others to do this as well as it is cathartic and would undoubtedly help some of us relieve the tedium until, say, the middle of August when we will be well into camp and unable to wait for the season any longer. 

My first submission to the series is below:

 

“Bad MGoBlogger”

(sung to Stevie Wonder’s “Part-Time Lover”)

 

You post some shit about recruits

Some bad hot takes, insults to boot

You think there’s nothing wrong, bad MGoBlogger

 

The downvotes start, you wonder why

That’s when the snark begins to fly

And now you’ve killed a thread, bad MGoBlogger

 

You are struggling to defend your dumb notion

It’s half-cocked, riddled with emotion

When the words don’t come you turn it all around

Throw out a “fuck”, then run the ship aground

 

The call goes out to find the mods

The blog won’t tolerate the clods

Yes, that refers to you, bad MGoBlogger

 

And all those points you thought you had

Go down the john, it makes you mad

You brought it on yourself, bad MGoBlogger

 

You are struggling to defend your dumb notion

It’s half-cocked, riddled with emotion

When the words don’t come you turn it all around

Throw out a “fuck”, then run the ship aground

 

You cannot see the problem with that post

But it’s so wrong, so much worse than most

You think that you’re being singled out

You likely are, of that there’s no doubt

 

I will not ask, I’ll just tell ya

Your next stop is Bolivia

This site is not for you, bad MGoBlogger

 

You’ll go create one more account

Try it again, but you discount

That people won’t spot you, bad MGoBlogger

Ghost of some bad MGoBlogger

Voltron too, bad MGoBlogger

 

For those unfamiliar with the original song:

Tall and tan and young and loudly
The MGoBlogger to La Paz goes balking
And when he posts
Each MGoBlogger goes, Aarrgh!

When he talks, he thinks he's a samba
That swings so cool and sways the gentry
But when he posts
Each MGoBlogger goes, Aarrgh!

Ooh, but the Mods watch so sadly
How can they tell he posts badly
Yes, he will give his points gladly
But each day, when he posts and we see
We look straight ahead, not at he

i find that hard to believe.  almost as hard to believe that muttlley made it into a song.  very well done.   supposedly the girl singer spoke no english, only tagalog (main philipino language), and had to learn the words to sing the song.  is a classic. 

and LSA, kudos to you, too.  enough booze and who knows what some of the others will come up with.

Making up lyrics to songs is my favorite past time in long boring meetings. When they eventually ask me a question and I immediately respond in verse, they think it is impressive and I get promoted.

But what album from Mr. Wonder isn't? This song got some serious rotation by my dad when I was a kid. Well played. My wife is looking at me like I'm insane. A take on Luther Vandross's scatting would have been even more hilarious

"B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B Bolivia!"

the moms put in on any web site but especially sport blogs as large as this one. I would first like to say thank you moms one and all for not sending me to Bolivia when I log in having an off day and maybe throw some flamebait out there, OK definetly throw some flamebait out there. Anyway thanks for your work and thank you for getting that song Part Time Lover stuck in my head presumably for the rest of the day. I'll take that as punishment for the time I wrote a flamebait post.

Here's my submission in the song lyric game, to the tune "My Girl" by the Temptations:

 

In the Big House, a November day

When it's cold outside, Wolverines play

Scarlet and Gray,  Who can make you go away?

 

Harbaugh, Harbaugh, talking 'bout Harbaugh.

 

We've got such great recruits, Urbz envies me.

Peters, Walker, Mitchell, and Rashan Gary.

We won't be beat; Buckeye tears will taste so sweet.

 

Harbaugh, Harbaugh, talking 'bout Harbaugh.

 

We don't need Coke promotions, no not at all.

100,000 and more to watch football.

Damn Dave Brandon, this game is not played at home.

 

Harbaugh, Harbaugh, talking 'bout Harbaugh

 

(In Ohio on a cloudy day, we'll still make you go away....)
