    The greatest song ever written. Ever.

    From the Scottish comedy show, "Limmy's Show". This is one of my favorite skits wherein Limmy comes up with a little ditty and the whole world ends up loving it.

    It's kind of hard to understand for people who don't speak Scottish English, but it's still funny. The guitar playing is great, too. :p



    If only it was this easy to make it in the music industry. :D

    Definitely! It wastes no time getting to the chorus.

    And I thought the Beatles were masters of simplicity.

    I wept.

    It's the epitome of simplicity and yet it's so emotional.

    Reminded me of Steven Wright at one of the 1980’s Comic Relief. 2:05ish

    Sounds like Bruce Springsteen singing.

    Don't bore us, get to the chorus.

    rain splashin'
    on my feet
    i can't escape the donuts chasing me
    the question is can i ever be free?

    donuts!
    donuts chasing me!
    donuts
    i'll try to climb a tree
    donuts
    they can't get me
    up here....

    solo

    wrong way!
    i shoulda' let them be
    i ate one
    now they're coming
    for me where can i run? to the ends of the earth? oh noooo....

    outro

    Dirty Dozen
    After me
    Baker's Dozen
    Rolling after me,
    I got one for free,
    But it's after me
    Donuts following me

    In my time of donuts
    It's my time to die in the road
    Wrong way on Baker Street
    Weep for me weep for me

    And I had no problem understanding them.

    When I was in Key West was a waitress where I bartended from Scotland, and she could confuse us when she'd get buzzed. She'd also slip into their slang.

    I thought you were going to say "slip into something more comfortable". I was looking forward to the story. :D

    Trying to keep it PG (and not the guitar part).
