Updating Lyrics

You know…if Turner can colorize and make old black and white movies more “modern” (which I don't agree with). I think we owe it to ourselves to update some of the lyrics on older songs. Take “50 Ways to Leave your Lover” for example. Now the orginal lyrics go:

You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

Ok, they do still hold up, but we need some modern situations to go with this. I propose:

Just send her an email, Dale
Text her a note, you dote
Post on her blog, dog, and get yourself free
Yeah screen your cell phone, drone
Block her from your myspace place
Just jump in your hybrid, Sid, and get yourself free

Got any more?

My husband wrote about this on his blog recently:

He updated the song "The Letter."

Okay, I'm still laughing at that. What else you got?

Anne - Brilliant minds think alike I guess

Theresa - Oh, I've got more...don't get me started. Look for another post on this subject soon!
