My apologies to folk music lovers.  I, too, love folk music.  But I did twist my perception of it a bit here, just for fun.  Thanks for reading.  :)


"You Folked Up A Good Country Song"
(©2005 Bob Beckley)

You say you came to Nashville
To be a country star
But that crazy folk song you just played
Sounds like it's from Mars
I hate to break it off in ya
But son, you got it all wrong
Try not to cry and I'll tell you why
You folked up a good country song

Chorus:
It ain't got no sing-along-chorus
Hell, it ain't even got a hook
Where did you learn all o' them terms
In some philosophy book
Your rhymes are too dang perfect
Your story's way too long
Take it from me, any fool can see
You folked up a good country song

Now what in the world's a "cosmos"
And what is "Plato's Hell"
And those "intergalactic fairies", son
Just don't ring my bell
But nothing's worse than "Uranus"
It's sure enough way too strong
It's not a word that's fit to be heard
You folked up a good country song

Chorus:
It ain't got no sing-along-chorus
Hell, it ain't even got a hook
Where did you learn all o' them terms
In some philosophy book
Your rhymes are too dang perfect
Your story's way too long
Take it from me, any fool can see
You folked up a good country song

Tag:
Take it from me, any fool can see
You folked up a good country song
