Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Stratocaster Soup

This song was created for Game of Bands round 187 : "A Capella"

Lyrics:

(Strat, strat, strat soup mon)

Pass me some of dat
Strat soup
Da telecaster turkey, mon

When da last cow died
Manwich off da menu
The starving people cried til they
heard the band play out of tune

When we saw the saxophones
Could replace da copper
When we saw the wooden flute
Could be used to boil de water

My mother’s mother told us
When the flesh-wind came
All da life ‘round da Earth
Went up in flame

Up on da mainland
Where politicians play
The warring states blew
All demselves away but

Here on da island, oh yeah
Oh we was safe, but
We didn’t know the soil was
Already plagued, yeah

First half da people died
Another by the year
But we were safe in da bunker
Til the fire cleared, yeah

My mother’s mother told us
When the flesh-wind came
They couldn’t find no lumber
To make da water safe

So they gathered the instruments mon
Not one of them could stay
Stripped them down to the wood
For electronic circuits, yea

They took all de strings away
Tripwires for mutant hogs
Burned all the wooden frames, to cook
mutant hog stew, yea

My mother’s mother told us
When the flesh-wind came
They couldn’t find no brass no
To make the bullet casing

There went the flugelhorn
Trumpets and trombones
And the reggae scholars wept
Cause ska was no more, mon

So pass me some of dat
Stratocaster soup my friend
We don’t need instruments no more
We still got our vocal cords

My mother’s mother told us
When the flesh-wind came
Don’t cry for the broken drum
Your lead-lined boots can do the same

My mother’s mother told us
When the flesh-wind came
No mourning for da bass guitar
Your brother can hit dat low range

Now da skies are clear
Radiation come and gone
We no longer hold da tuba
Cause we all got 13 thumbs, yea

We don’t mourn the instruments, see,
Mainland’s end don’t mean our defeat
Just enjoy the giant crab meat
And clap your hands to da beat

Pass me some of dat
Strat soup
Da telecaster turkey, mon
