Punchy & Lefto

Post by SpecialGuestVillain » Thu Aug 27, 2020 5:06 pm

Punchy & Lefto ©Robert George 2020 BMI

Punchy’s been in government
For almost fifty years
Ran for POTUS twice before
Now his final chance is here
He’s got sticky fingers, now
Sniffed a lotta ladies’ hair
Me, Too doesn’t say a word
Only Rose McGowan cares

And now Lefto’s in the race
Standin’ by his side
Was she chosen for her looks
Or because she’s qualified
They hope we’ll forget
Crazy claims she’s made
Said she listened to Tupac
Back in second grade

And people in the media
Scrubbed her Wikipedia
But if you wanna know the truth
Just ask Willie Brown


Though Corn Pop’s a real bad dude
Punchy’s got the attitude
If he don’t know what state he’s in
Lefto gives him Prevagen

And people in the media
Scrubbed her Wikipedia
But if you wanna know the truth
Just ask Willie Brown


Punchy’s lived a good, long life
Doesn’t recognize his wife
Lefto’s happy to be Veep
Cos she thinks his life is cheap

And people in the media
Scrubbed her Wikipedia
But if you wanna know the truth
Just ask Willie Brown

Much too specific for sync...Universal Lyrics is what's needed

...it's a parody of Pancho and Lefty.

And I've forgotten what "too specific for synch" means. That sounds like something I'd hear from an android.

No idea who Pancho and Lefty are but It means if you hope to produce a song to licence for a Film or TV production the chances of a scene matching the lyrics you've written are infinitesimally small because of how subject specific they are.

I've mentioned before, I don't care about that. Are you a writer? Do you know anything about writing? Pancho and Lefty is a classic song. I'm surprised someone on a songwriting site wouldn't know what it was.

And who decides what's "too specific "?. I've had tv placements.

So why post the lyrics on a forum specifically for a TV/Film Licensing if that's not what you are aiming at ?

Usually the music supervisor or director

I post because I'm a writer.

Pancho and Lefty isn't local. It's a very famous song.

What have you written?

According to Wikipedia is was never released outside of the US / Canada...so I guess that's why nobody this side of the pond would have heard of it..Country is not much of a thing here, Locally famous maybe but not globally.

What have you written?
5 EP's , 3 Albums, 20 songs for sync + 350-ish instrumental cues


( PS..If you go back to my very first forum post from 10 yrs ago you can hear some pre - Taxi songs )
