By no means am I a Deadhead but this song came floating into my head today for reasons I can't explain. Thankfully, now it's out of my head. Big thanks to Jason for his very valuable suggestions.

It's quarter past 10 oh, Nats talk again
Don't call him Bos but every day he tunes in.
With the same old question, he badgered Svrluga.
It's still the honeymoon phase but he'll soon badger you too, yeah

The Orchid is stayin' but Grandpa's the same.
Chelsea Janes, ya sure you want this gig?
Papelbon this, Papelbon that.
And you know that Grandpa's gonna ask every time.
And you should ask Bob Ryan how he drops his phone line.

*A parody of Casey Jones by the Grateful Dead

Thanks KJ but here is blanket permission for anyone to cover anything I've done. Just make it good and make it funny!

And it's not even my first Dead song, Joe. And what a dope I am! I feel like I can no longer rely on my memory for anything! I was certain no one had done this song so I didn't even check and now I'm reminded Mr. Lip himself already did it and did it well- My apologies, Steve! So, now there are 3 Dead songs, 2 of which are the same. That's surely enough, isn't it?

Agh you beat me to a similar idea I had. This is really great. Agree about the angle, and the vocals and harmonies on this are wonderful.

Great angle, and I really like the lyrics illustrating the theme of the song by repeating a word here and there to emphasize how these Nats conversations tend to go. Sounds great too - harmonies in that chorus especially. We have unwittingly trained our brains to make these song/idea associations, so now stuff just pops up from songs we've barely heard!
