re: Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

How is it even possible that this classic song is not in the LMB collection!

re: Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

I wrote some mean lyrics for the song. I have no real idea if they actually could be understood, really, for my understanding of English is limited. I would be very thankful if I can get a few comments on these lyrics and how to improve them if necessary.

Basically this is a song by the Andune Ensemble that makes fun of some people in their audience who are jealous of their fabulous life as a famous band, doing nothing - while they themselves have to go fight against the orcs and goblins every day and most likely die...

*cough* Yeah, a bit controversal. Just like the original song lyrics were ;)

-- HONEY FOR NOTHING --

I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my
I want my pie for free

Heh
Now look at them Andunes thats the way you do it
You play the pibgorn on the stage in Bree
That aint fightin thats the way you do it
Honey for nothin and your pie for free
That aint fightin thats the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys aint dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We will be killed by misbehaved orcses
End as mutton deliveries
We disapprove of incinerators
We disapprove of goblin tee-heeth

The little hobbit with the earring and the makeup
Yeah buddy thats her own foot hair
That little maggot got a rear that's insane
That little maggot lives in a vanity fair

We will be killed by misbehaved orcses
End as mutton deliveries
We disapprove of incinerators
We disapprove of goblin tee-heeth

Uh-ha, Uh-ha
Huh

Will be killed by misbehaved orcses
End as mutton deliveries
We disapprove of incinerators
We disapprove of goblin tee-heeth

I shoulda learned to play the pibgorn
I shoulda learned to play them drums
Look at that mama, she got it grinnin at the audience, man
We could have some fun
And hes up there, whats that? Clarinet noises?
Bangin on the bongoes like an oliphaunt
That aint war, thats the way you do it
Honey for nothin get your pie for free

We will be killed by misbehaved orcses
End as mutton deliveries
We disapprove of incinerators
We disapprove of goblin tee-heeth

Listen here! Now.
That aint fightin thats the way you do it
You play the pibgorn on the stage in Bree
That aint fightin thats the way you do it
Honey for nothin and your pie for free

Honey for nothin
Pie for free
Honey for nothin
Pie for free
Honey for nothin
Pie for free
Honey for nothin
Pie for free

Honey for nothin
Pie for free
Honey for nothin
Pie for free
Honey for nothin
Pie for free
Honey for nothin
Pie for free

I want my, I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my, I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my, I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my, I want my
I want my pie for free

I want my, I want my
I want my pie for free
I want my, I want my
I want my pie for free

Updated the abc to follow LMB instrument numbering rules properly.

hehe nice lyrics.

We have the tune in Andune but not in LMB, as you say. I will add yours this month.
