I was thinking I could earn some retirement money busking. “Busking” is singing and playing your instrument on the sidewalk with your guitar case open hoping for tips. Sone of you call it begging. I would do it differently. I would come up with the most obnoxious and unlikely busking tunes and then follow people until they tipped me to go away. I mean really, how long could you stand it if someone was following you singing….

“……I don’t think that I can take it/Cause it took too long to make it/ and I’ll never have that recipe AGAIN!/OH NOOOO!!!!!”

I’ve already got a good start:

Kumbaya           Axel Rose version
No Milk Today      Herman’s Hermits
Brand New Rollerskate        Melanie
Ringo           Lorne Green
Candy man          Sammy Davis Jr.
Puppy love         Donny Osmand
Muskrat Love         Captain and Tenille
Loving You           Minnie Ripperton
Seasons in the Sun        Terry Somebody
Puppy Love         Donny Osmond
Feelings              Morris Albert
Wonderful Christmas Time              Paul McCartney
100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall                Mormon Tabernacle Choir version (for long chases).

Anybody have more “I’ll-poke-my-eye-out-if-I-hear-that-again” songs?
