Like a Rolling Clone

Last night I saw Bob Dylan at the Prospect Park Band Shell in Brooklyn. As he warbled through his lyrics, I got an epiphany for today's "Weird Al" Wednesday parody when he opened the show with Rainy Day Woman #12 & #35.

Also, inspiring me is that news story last week about the puppies that were the first commercial cloning.
(Plus, I recently saw Kate Blachett's 'cloning' performace of Bob Dylan is the film 'I'm Not There'.)

Enjoy:

Well, they'll clone ya when your doggie's down six feet.
They'll clone ya when you're feelin' the defeat.
They'll clone ya when you're drunk and hit the floor.
They'll clone ya when your girl does ignore.
But instead of buying that iPhone,
Everybody must get cloned!

Well, they'll clone ya when your friends are acting cold.
They'll clone ya just a-like so you double will act bold.
They'll clone ya when your husband doesn’t come home.
Then they'll clone ya when your talking sex on the phone.
But instead of buying that iPhone,
Everybody must get cloned!

Wow that can be a radio advertisement!
Any other songs about cloning folks?

Happy Wednesday.

Holy Freaking cow!!!! Cloned puppies? And that lady paid $50,000 for them??? I'm in freaking shock.

But, this is going to be hard to play today. First off, I don't know this song! (Yea, so shoot me already!) So, let me get this straight. I do a Bob Dylan song, but with stuff about cloning?

Yea, I'm slow today.

No Bina. I want to hear songs about cloning like...

Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake

I'm bringing cloning back,
My hamster died of a heart attack
.

Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clones...


Send in the Clowns from the musical "A Little Night Music"

Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand

Yeah, I’ll tell you something,
But it might make you groan.
When Fluffy kicks the bucket,
I want to get a clone.

I want to get a clone.
I want to get a clone.

Oh, please say to me
You'll use her DNA.
For fifty thousand dollars,
Fluffy won't go away.

Sweet Clone O' Mine by Clones N' Roses

She's got eyes that look like mine and if she goes astray,
I'll dump her and make a new one who won't cause me pain.

Her hair is from a cold dead corpse that as a child made me smile,
So I prayed for the thunder and Igor to make my frankenstein bri-i-ide.

Whoa whoa oh whoa oh whoa Sweet Clone O' Mine.

Knight said...

Sweet Caroline

Hands, cloning hands, reaching out
Cloning me, cloning you.
Oh, sweet Clone of mine.
I have never looked so good.
I've been inclined to believe i
should clone you.

The Mountain Cat said...

Knight! Oh my God we both did different verisions of Sweet Clone of Mine! How funny is that?!

Everyone's songs are great! Keep 'em coming.

Only the Good Die Young by Billy Joel

Dolly the sheep died young
Cloned sheep and she died so young

She had nice white fleece and was the first real clone sensation

She got a lung disease
Mmmm, they couldn’t help her ease
But Dolly they didn’t count on your limitations
All the tricks they pulled
You died and they cloned a bull


Sorry, Billy...

leapofaith said...

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead,
If you could only ...

Clone what you need to clone
Clone what you need to clone
Clone what you need to clone
Clone what you need to clone

Clone what you need to clone
Clone what you need to clone
Clone what you need to clone
Clone what you need to clone


Song title/artist not necessary...

(Somebody had to do it...!) :-P

Oh...and WELCOME BACK, DOC!!

Friday I'm in Love by The Cure

I don't care for Monday's dups,
Tuesday's twin,
or Wednesday's deuce,
Thursday I make a facsimile of you,
And Friday, I'm a clone!

Monday you are counterfeit,
Tuesday, Wednesday carbon cop,
Oh, Thursday gonna replicart,
On Friday I'm a clone!

Saturday, same.
And Sunday you're my counterpart
But Friday, always duplicates. Friday, I'm a clone!

leapofaith said...

Not fair...TMC is too good at his own game!! ; )

(That's what comes from too much time on his hands...)

ENTER SANDMAN by METALLICA

Say your prayers little clone,
And don't forgot you are my drone. You're like everyone else.
You go to work,
everyday,
in your cubical,
'til the cloneman pays you.
Sleep until six AAAA-MMMMM,
Work until 5 PM
Exit life,
Enter carrreeerrr.
Need to pay those bills,
Just like everybody else!

JINGLE BELLS

Clone your family, clone your pets
Clone clone clone I say
Oh what fun it is to clone
The people wil pay and pay.

Knight said...

I made it through the clone process.
Somehow I made it through
Didnt know that I was cloned
Until I saw you.

Like A virgin.
Cloned for the very first time.
Like A cloning virgin.
I feel your heartbeat
And it matches mine.

Old McDonald had a farm
eieio
and on the farm he had a cow
eieio
with cow clone here and a cow clone there. Here a clone there a clone, everywhere a cow clown.




I think I have to stop now. I'm starting to go crazy.

BIG BALLS by AC/DC

I'm a duplicate in upper class high society,
God's gift to cloning notoriety,
I always fill my cloneroom,
Those dups are never small,
The science pages say I've got,
The biggest clones of all.

CHORUS:
I've got big clones,
I've got big clones,
And they're such big clones,
Dirty big clones,
And he's got big clones,
And she's got big clones,
But we've got the biggest clones of them all!

Bina said...

I like Knight's, Like A Virgin!

Aunt Becky said...

I was in desperate need of this today. Thanks, dude!

Blondie - Call Me (currently playing on my ipod)

Clone me. I'm your pet.
You can clone me. Please just call your vet.

Rhinestone Cowboy:

I've been walkin' these streets so long
Singin' the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Science
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice clones get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of theorizin’
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cloned boy
Riding out on a copied strand of DNA
Like a rhinestone cloneboy
Getting subpeonas and letters from lawyers I don't even know
And threats comin' over the phone

Well, I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're ridin' the strain that's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a barcode and a GPS transmitter tucked inside my shoe
There'll be a load of theorizin’
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cloneboy
Riding out on a copied strand of DNA
Rhinestone cloneboy
Gettin' subpeonas and letters from lawyers I don't even know
And threats comin' over the phone

OOPS I DID IT AGAIN by BRITNEY SPEARS

I think I cloned one again.
I made you believe we're just like me.
Oh baby.
It might seem so crass,
But it doesn't mean that I'm serious
'Cause I copy all my senses
That are just so similar to me.
Oh baby, baby

[CHORUS:]
Oops!...I cloned one again.
I copy and pasted your heart, and now it's the same
Oh baby, baby
Oops!...You think I'm in love.
That you like just like me.
My twin is not innocent!

My thinking cap broke and I knew I didn't have the brain power for this today.

I vote Karen's Beatles song. She made me grin big. I like Lu's Jingle bells too. Simple and straight to the cloning point.

Of course nobody asked me but you know....

Y'all have a good one.
