Crankenhurst Challenge 1-6

Get Flash to see this player.

I was standin' all alone, at the train station in Crankenhurst
I had just finished my lunch, roast beef and liverwurst
Well, I looked out my window
And I'll tell you what I saw first
(In Crankenhurst)

There was James Dean in his Spyder and old Brando on his Triumph-T,
I saw Elvis in his Caddy with Marilyn upon his knee;
Well they pulled into the station, came inside and sat right next to me...
How could this be?

there was a nip to the air with a clear blue sky
snow in the gutter but i never asked why
the driveway was so shiny and black
my buddy said come on climb in the back
well i went around the car and my feet went from under
smashed my shoulder on the tarmac
and it frankenhurts!

I said, "Sorry Elvis,
Should I take you to the hospital?"
He said, "Thank ya, thank ya very much,
But our schedule is very full."
Then he said, "Anyone ever mention
That you look like Martin Mull?"

Well, Sinatra left the limo with a bottle of Jack in his hand
And he shooby-doobed and ring-a-dinged his way up to the barbeque stand
They say, "How'd you like your burger today?"
He said, "I'll do it myself and say I did it my way!"

Well, the party started jumping to the sounds of rock and roll
We were dancing and singing and really getting out of control
Even though there was no time to rehearse
It was time for me to sing this verse
In Crankenhurst


Nnnnnext? :D

In Crankenhurst!
It's not often I laugh my butt off AND be impressed beyond words; this is a 107-mph fastball blast of awesome. LOVE the backing vox and the turnaround last line!
