Has Anyone Heard

Postby heyjude65 » Sat Jun 22, 2002 2:16 am

Has anyone heard the bootleg song of "Free As A Bird" with the alternate lyrics. I was downloading it from AudioGalaxy when the website was shut down so I lost it. I was able to listen to it even though it hadn't finished downloading and it was a riot. I wrote the lyrics down up to the point where it got cut off, and thought this forum would enjoy a little Beatle humor direct from none other than Paul, George and Ringo. The lyrics read: (remember, this is to the tune "Free As A Bird")

Please, don't put out this verse
It's a piece of crap to me
Can hardly hear my words

Whatever happened to, the rights to Love Me Do
We made Michael Jackson one rich mama
John wouldn't like this much, we use him as a crutch
And now we feel so cheap

So, please - This song's a turd
I'm not a Traveling Wilbury
This should not be heard
(last line was indistinct then cut off)

I think it's hysterical that they took the time to write the altenate lyrics and record it for a laugh, although with their creativity it probably didn't take that long. I'm sure they knew it would get out to the public like all the other bootleg stuff. Has anyone else come across this little gem? If so, does the song go much beyond where I lost it? What are the remaining lyrics. I'm searching other sites to find it again.

Oh, I am a big fan of parodies, and that one really got me going

The difference between genius and insanity is merely the difference between success and failure.

So you should hear Frank Zappa´s "We´re only in it for the money" ,more than a parody, a sarcastic joke with "Sgt.Pepper´s" starting from the album cover...
Paul didn´t like much and was quite upset that time...


Peace.

I've heard about it, but never heard it.
