I would like to begin by explaining that everything is to be blamed on kellychambliss and pale_moonlite. However, Teskey (tetleythesecond) & Crone-Crew were in my mind egging me on.

Moonlite answered the Harry Potter meme question about Wrock (Wizard Rock), which I've been into for a while and she has just discovered. She mentioned that she found no femslashy songs and also nothing about our beloved strong older women.

kellychambliss posted about Dolores Umbridge and mentioned her short stature in comparison to Minerva McGonagall's. She posted short people.

I got the idea to cover it, possibly with a guitar. Mind, I've had the guitar for a while now, but probably only had two chances to sit down with it - and only play random chords. I've never played guitar before.

Hours later, what I had was a parody of the song, titled...

Old people got no reason (3x)
To live

/ A - F#m - / B7 - E7sus4 - / :

They got sunspot hands, glassed eyes
They walk around lamentin’ how time flies
They got long noses and nettle wreaths
They wear flat-soled shoes and aren’t so sweet.

But I want some old people
I love some old people
I need some old people
‘Round here

/ A F#m B7 E7sus4 / / / /

Old people are just the same as you and I
(A fool am I)
All witches are sisters until the day they die
It’s a magical world

/ Dmaj7 - A - Bm7 - / D - / :

Old people got everybody (3x)
To scorn

They got wise eyes that stand the crow
You got to give ‘em a cane so they ain’t so slow
They' got active wits: get no sleep, sleep, sleep
They got bad knees: can never leap, leap, leap
They got arthritic fingers and perverse minds
In the sheets, they make you climb

But I want some old people
I love some old people
I need some old people
‘Round here

Minerva people
Poppy people
Irma people
Augusta people

Rolanda people
Amelia people
Alastor people
Wilhelmina people

Albus people
Muriel people
Griselda people
Xenophilius people

I want some old people
I love some old people
I need some old people
‘Round here

So, still no femslash 'round here, but it's a start. Still can't play the B7 well since it's a strange bar and I'm not used to barring 5 out of 6 strings and arranging two more fingers, but I'll be practising. (:

At least it makes me laugh.
Current Mood: blahBlah.

This made me laugh and at the same time got "Short People" stuck in my head so I've been walking around the house singing it xD Goddamnit.

Also I didn't know you played guitar at all! :)
I play guitar myself, currently learning to play Walk by Pantera.
I don't know ANY chords off hand but I can read tabs xD (yay fancy - not!)
It's ok though because I can play piano and read and write music there. I can be classless on guitar I'm only learning metal right now xD

Teeheehee, I'm glad an amusing scene came out of it. :P

I don't really play the guitar at all! I picked one up during the summer and have been learning a few chords. I haven't had any real time to play it and thus still don't know anything. Still just the ukulele, really, and at that badly! :P

This is great! I'm happy to take all the blame going /g/. I hope you'll record it at some point. . .
Kiwi Crocuscranky__crocus on September 14th, 2010 04:54 am (UTC)
Thank you! Laughter, you certainly deserve much of the blame... :P But I am glad that you're happy with that. (; (Thank you for the inspiration!)

You've the potential to be a Great Crone!
I love this!
They got arthritic fingers and perverse minds A dirty mind is a joy forever my dear. Get one. It'll outlast smooth skin and dimples.

I join kellychambliss in hoping you'll record this. And post the record, of course.

Re: You've the potential to be a Great Crone!
The title of your comment made me smile so very very wide.

I certainly have the perverse mind. Even if it doesn't translate to fanfic, it is certainly here.

Thank you!

Laughter. I'm glad you're happy to be blamed! Thank you for the inspiration. I'm glad it came around, in the end. (:

This? Is made of complete and utter win! I'm sorry it took me so long to comment, but we used all our downloads up on like the 20th and had crappy dial-up speed internets until the 1st. But I was totally waiting to listen to this, and it I'm sure it has made me :D :D :D for the rest of the day

(Also, Sybill demands inclusion in the femslash one - see icon ;))

PS: fail. I didn't realise this was just the text, but I totally just listened on therealsnape's journal and followed her link to the lyrics *g*

Blushes. Thank you! Ugh, I'm sorry to hear about your Internet woes! I am glad that it has brought a smile!

(I would love to put her in a femslash one. I didn't picture her as old enough for this song just yet, although perhaps she is. :P)

I always love that icon!
