Lyrics

I NEVER MEANT TO CAUSE ANY CONSTERNATION
I NEVER MEANT TO HURT ANY JOBS
ACTUALLY, I DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT ANYBODY ELSE HERE
I JUST WANT MURIEL TO KILL THE PURPLE LINE

PURPLE LINE, PURPLE LINE
TRIED TO PLOW THROUGH THE BACK 9
OH THE TRIALS OF THE 1% LIFE
NIGEL, CALL SVIRLUGA TO DEBATE THE PURPLE LINE

HONEY I KNOW PEOPLE NEED TRANSPORTATION
BUT WEALTHY MEN HAVE TO GOLF
DON'T MARGINALLY INCONVENIENCE ME AND ALLAN BUBIS
DON'T FORCE US TO FIRE TITLEISTS AT THE PURPLE LINE

Prince was my favorite musician from the time my mom bought me 1999 on cassette. I knew that after Delirious things took a nasty turn on that album, and as we were listening to it in the car I warned her we should stop as the opening kick/snare of Let's Pretend We're Married began. I think she was horrified that she had bought this filth for her son. But she loved Prince too. I never asked her what she was thinking. Just seemed best to let it lie.

i know...my memory is not what it used to be. i had the thought "i should do a cheers song." without remembering that one of my favorite jingles was "that's it, I'm boiling eggs." how could i have forgotten that?

This is funny. And I also agree about wishing everything was posted here. I have a hard time remembering where I was yesterday, much less all the songs that have been done.

I agree about Joe Farrell's stuff. He is hilarious. This is nice work Rob, so maybe there's another part of the Prince songbook you can try. No one has done Darling Nikki yet ;-)

okay, John suggested I keep it up and make it an homage to Joe. as an aside, I really wish his stuff was on here. i'm sure this sentiment is unanimous.

John informed me that this one has been done; honestly, i don't know how i missed that. I searched for it first but it must not be posted. is there a way to take down jingles?
