I Wanna Filk it All


I'm sitting in traffic
For the 5th year in a row
Wasting my time
Just to get
Where I don't even wanna go
I started jaunting things down
On a krispy kreme sack
Everything I'd do
If I could leave this place
And never look back

I wanna filk it all
Use songs about the fall
"Take me out to the ball"[1]
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few breaks
Celebrate like at Mardi Gras
Join the tradition
"I fought the law"[2]
I wanna filk it all

I want to filk "tequila"
Down in Tijuana
Say why not
When somebody says
Hey do you wanna
I wanna get my work praised
Once or twice
Settle down, write the filk of my life
Try "The Lion sleeps tonight"

I wanna filk it all
Use songs about the fall
Sing "Take me out to the ball"
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few breaks
Celebrate like at Mardi Gras
Join the tradition
"I fought the law"
I wanna filk it all

I wanna stand today
Every now and then
Just filking what I want to do
When I wanna do it
Anytime I wanna do it

I wanna filk it all
Use songs about the fall
"Take me out to the ball"
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few breaks
Celebrate like at Mardi Gras
Join the tradition
"I fought the law"

I wanna filk it all
See Mahou write
And Shoka join in
Feel good holding my pen
Beating the odds
With my back to the wall
Trying to filk Mary
Pete and Paul [3]
I wanna filk it all
I wanna filk it all
I wanna filk it all

[1] "Take me out to the ball game"
[2] "I fought the law (and the law won)"
[3] The band Peter, Paul and Mary

I Wanna Do it All

I'm sitting in traffic
For the 5th year in a row
Wasting my time
Just to get
Where I don't even wanna go
I started jaunting things down
On a krispy kreme sackEverything I'd do
If I could leave this place
And never look back

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankee's play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I want to drink tequila
Down in Tijuana
Say why not
When somebody says
Hey do you wanna
I wanna get my heart broke
Once or twice
Settle down with the love of my life
Rock little babies to sleep at night

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankee's play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I wanna stand today
Every now and then
Just doing what I want to do
When I wanna do it
Anytime I wanna do it

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fallWatch the Yankee's play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law

I wanna do it all
See Niagara falls
Fight city hall
Feel good in my skin
Beating the odds
With my back to the wall
Trying to rob Peter
Without paying Paul
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all
(Everybody Wants to) Filk the World

[After Tears for Fears' "(Everybody Wants to) Rule the World"]

Welcome to the board
There's no turning back
Even while you sleep
You will think of filking all your favorite songs
Turn your back on karaoke
Everybody wants to filk the world

It's your own desire
You won't know remorse
You can't just decide
not to make the most
of filking things for pleasure
no song ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to filk the world

In this forum your muse can find you
Guide your hand while the filks come tumbling out
When it does, we'll all applaud you
So glad you finally wrote it
So glad you finally noted
Everybody wants to filk the world

I can't stand this intermission
between each new filk I'm a-wishin'
everbody wants to filk the world
don't say you'll ever stop it
no filker will believe you
Everybody wants to filk the world

You're filking things for pleasure
no song ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to filk the world
