Can'T Spell Crap Without Rap....
Music has always been, always will be
by Lee Degnan
my first love
best when as loud as I can bear it
and you can't scream above
it's how I spend every minute, every
second, of every day
even when the stereo's off
in my mind music will play
A fan of most, doesn't really
matter much to me
except for that twangy crap
that people call 'country'
well, I can't really say that either
even some of it is good, yet....
remakes are like drunks on
karaoke night...on a lousy bet
It's when any 'artist' dares to
convert a classic old song
and recreate it into something
horrifically and tragically wrong
Hey, Billy Bob whatever-your-name-is, you had
no business doing that anyway
what the hell made you think you could sing
Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway'? ?
Really, it's all about respect
and this is one person's judgement call
I'd say you wouldn't want Eminem coming
around sportin' a drawl
and belting out 'Devil Went Down To
Georgia', could you imagine him?
You'd consider him destroying that song
if he ever came up with that whim
Another thing I think I'll mention
before I call this poem a wrap
even though I like it sometimes,
'You can't spell CRAP without RAP! '
Respect the music
Respect the artist
Even if you don't listen to it
It's not your song
Stealing is wrong
Nobody messes with my music!
