Well, I still have a lot of lyrics to get through (I'll start posting what I've got in a few minutes, though ... Livejournal outages really hamper a project like this!) but urbeatle posted lyrics about one of my interests the other day, and this evening for fun I recorded them. (I should maybe note there aren't any similar expectations or requirements for anyone who responded to my challenge!) So here they are:
Other Ur-Beatleish lyrical awesomeness can be found in his livejournal and other places.
KITTEN KNITTIN' BLUESgoin' down to the drug store, buy me a skein of yarn
goin' down to the drug store, buy a big ol' skein of yarn
gonna knit me a kitten, even if you don't give a darn
got a pair o' round needles, listen to them purr!
got a pair o' round needles, hear them summabitches purr!
gonna knit me a kitten and cover him up with fur
don' want no store-bought kitten,
can't stand them kitten farms,
I wants me a homemade kitten
with all those kitten charms
so I guess I'll knit me a kitten
any color fur I choose
I can barely wait for my kitten
that's why I got me the blues
gonna knit me a kitten, just a couple more months to go
gonna knit me a kitten, just eight or nine months to go
gonna knit a siamese or maybe even a calico
I'm a gettin' closer, I can almost hear the mews
I'm a gettin' closer, I swear I can hear those mews
I can't wait to finish, I got the kitten knittin' blues
no, I can't wait to finish, that's why I got
the kitten knittin' BLUES!
