Geek Alley
A filk of the self referential masterpiece (look at it! it took some m4d 5k1llz to write that song!) \"Creeque Alley,\" by The Mamas and the Papas

A guy name Piro was feeling like a zero
So he chose to just fly to Japan
Without knowing, Largo was also going
I think he would have vetoed the plan
At a gaming show Erika works
And occasionally she'll hurt some jerks
Friends of Yuki, acting really kooky
In a city known as Tokyo
And no one's getting sad except Kimiko

Largo said \"Piro, you sure aren't a hero
The fact is you seemed pretty lame\" (Universe!)
Piro said, \"Largo, hello, don't you think that I know?
Can't you empathize with my pain?\"
In a rave club Tohya Miho lurks (Cave of Evil)
Waiting in the darkness, looking for a book
Asako and Mami, both know that they agree
Friend Yuki, she seems all aglow
And no one's getting sad except Kimiko

Kimiko's a waitress, struggling voice actress
But she just can't land a part
Going to auditions, they don't like her renditions
Sometimes almost breaking her heart
Piro gave Kimiko a rail card
Then walked away before he could be scarred
Poor little Ping, doesn't know a thing
Cute robot with no place to go
And no one's getting sad except Kimiko

Jail breaks, heart aches, big breaks, mistakes
Don't spend paychecks in the work place
Meet up, beat up, everybody eat up
At least she's recognized your face!
Erika hauled them all to a garden
Where beer's nearly free and Piro could be pardoned
Miho and Yuki, both're cute, one's spooky
Both have things that only they know
Now everyone's getting sad with Kimiko
Di-di-di-dit dit dit di-di-di-dit, who-o-oa

Explosions, emotions, going through the motions
Piro realizes he still has a chance
Gets off early, heads off in a hurry
We wish him luck in his romance
Largo gets grabbed by a 'labor
He's caught again, but watch the drunken neighbor
Dom and Ed's intentions, never will be mentioned
Just following the trails of debris
And MT readers just debating 'bout reality


Creeque Alley
The Mamas and the Papas

John and Mitchy were gettin' kind of itchy
Just to leave the folk music behind
Zol and Denny workin' for a penny
Tryin' to get a fish on the line
In a coffee house Sebastian sat
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

Zolly said "Denny, you know there aren't many"
"Who can sing a song the way that you do, let's go south"
Denny said "Zolly, golly, don't you think that I wish"
"I could play guitar like you"
Zol, Denny and Sebastian sat (at the Night Owl)
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swarthmore
But she changed her mind one day
Standin' on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike
"Take me to New York right away"
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps
Called John and Zol and that was the Mugwumps
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher
But that's what they were aimin' at
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps
Don't you work as hard as you play
Make up, break up, everything is shake up
Guess it had to be that way
Sebastian and Zol formed the Spoonful
Michelle, John, and Denny gettin' very tuneful
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin' fire
In L.A., you know where that's at
And everybody's gettin' fat except Mama Cass
Di-di-di-dit dit dit di-di-di-dit, who-o-oa

------ flute ------

Broke, busted, disgusted, agents can't be trusted
And Mitchy wants to go to the sea
Cass can't make it, she says we'll have to fake it
We knew she'd come eventually
Greasin' on American Express cards
It's low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard
Duffy's good vibrations and our imaginations
Can't go on indefinitely
And California dreamin' is becomin' a reality


[!filk] That took a long time to write. Excuse my insolence, but I'd like to think I gained a level with this one. And I didn't even have to call Ed "Eddie" to do it! Thank Heaven for revision! It probably saved my life. [/!filk]
I liked this so much, I decided to bump it again with another Mama's and Papa's filk. This is a pure fantasy, portraying Erika as a "Mahoro figure", so to speak.

Hayasaka's Dreaming

Kimiko's my friend, (the girl's my friend)
Though she's always grey, (she is always grey)
I know very well (know her very well)
When her heart's astray, (when her heart's astray)
I'll go talk to Piro, (I'll go talk to Piro)
And I'll nudge him her way, (and I'll nudge him her way)

Hayasaka's dreaming, (Hayasaka's dreaming)
Of when she goes away...

Went down to the beach
That faces Tokyo bay,
Well, I looked out for a while (looked out for a while)
At the chilly waves. (at the chilly waves)
I have felt my life here (I have felt my life)
Like the wind in the spray, (like the wind in the spray)

Hayasaka's dreaming, (Hayasaka's dreaming)
Of when she goes away...

All my friends need help, (all my friends need help)
But my skies are grey, (but my skies are grey)
I'll give them what I can, (I'll give them what I can)
While I live today, (while I live today)
I have never told her, (I have never told her)
I'll be leaving one day, (I'll be leaving one day)

Hayasaka's dreaming, (Hayasaka's dreaming)
Of when she goes away...
(Hayasaka's dreaming)
Of when she goes away...
(Hayasaka's dreaming)
Of when she goes away...

California Dreaming


All the leaves are brown (All the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (And the sky is grey)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
On a winter's day (On a winter's day)
I'd be safe and warm (I'd be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (If I was in L.A.)

California dreaming (California dreaming)
On such a winter's day...

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees (Got down on my knees)
And I pretend'd to pray (I pretend'd to pray)
You know the preacher likes the cold (Preacher likes the cold)
He knows I'm gonna stay (Knows I'm gonna stay)

California dreaming (California dreaming)
On such a winter's day...

All the leaves are brown (All the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (And the sky is grey)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
On a winter's day (On a winter's day)
If I didn't tell her (If I didn't tell her)
I could leave today (I could leave today)

California dreaming (California dreaming)
On such a winter's day...
California dreaming
On such a winter's day...
California dreaming
On such a winter's day...
