re: Oh Yeah - Roxy Music

Oh well... the story for this song...

Today I visited the Green Dragon Friday event on Laurelin as I so often do for years now. Today it was a nice event with a lot of fun banter and of course between Lina and me. Lina Willowwood, the host of the event, unveiled that she doesn't like bathing and prefers to smell like a Wollowwood would - or in fact does.

It was not a far stretch to deduct that she must be flea ridden from the lacking hygiene and I made fun of her because of that. And so the banter wend back and forth until I got an idea for a song. Funny also that somehow Oh Yeah from Roxy Music sprang into my mind and I bought a nice midi for it and went to work...

There are 2 versions of it, one for a band of 8 and a luxury version for 10 band members:

And here are the lyrics for it. Imagine Lina telling her story about her fleas...

It goes by the title of



-- OH DEAR --

Something's itching on my feet
It's a bath that I may need
Where was I? Oh I need to go!
Oh, oh, oh

How can I play at this music show
when the fleas confuse me for a dog?

There are fleas playing on my little toe
With a rhythm of rhyming guitars
They're playing for you on my little toe
Oh, oh, oh

This here's taking far too long
Never make it through this song
How they bite! Scratch me, they won't go!
Oh, oh, oh

How can I stay at this music show?
Please leave soon, I'm no hound but a star

There are fleas playing on my little toe
With a rhythm of rhyming guitars
They're playing for you on my little toe
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

# (break)

It's some time I waved goodbye
Now we lead our separate lives
I took a bath, I loved it so!
Oh, oh, oh

Now I can go to a music show
How I yearn for the sounds of my harp!

There were fleas playing on my little toe
With a rhythm of rhyming guitars
They were playing for you on my little toe
And their drowning has saved me from tears
They were playing for you on my little toe
Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

re: Oh Yeah - Roxy Music

OK, I think I made much better versions of the song now. One comes for 8 and one for 10 players. I put the links in the original post.

Sorry, I revoked the 11-part version.
