More Music...Scar De O Day

This song is pure nonsense.

Inspired by an Elton John song on his Caribou LP
from 1974 called "Solar Prestige A Gammon".
The song had made-up words and I don't think was
supposed to mean anything.

This song has potential, but there are lots of technical
glitches, such as drop-outs, sudden bassy over-
modulations, and lofty illusions that I am a singer!

It is just me playing, but it is tough to get everything
timed correctly when you are a one-man band!

I include the standard disclaimer:

Not professionally recorded, and it might sound better if
you listened with headphones.

The link and the lyrics appear below:

Scar De O Day

1. See radda da culcha
Be nombe pa doo
See radda da culcha
A nom pa coo

2. Oh, catching residing
Pat tippy a nom
Oh, catching residing
Za la track bum

C. Put mooching able scar de o day
Put scar de o day
Ka-hacking piping scar de o day
pipe scar de o day

San jay-pull keena scar de o day
Keena scar de o day
Oh, dimple so my scar de o day
So my scar de o day

3. For putting I shestet
Pick oh veroo pin
For putting I shestet
Da long ja kim

4. Nom lackey and sober
Can dereeo lid
Nom lackey and sober
So keep I pid


Peace be with you.


  1. I like a man who sings pure nonsense. Could you please do it while stabbing your breakfast?

    Love the drum work!

  2. Ha ha, you are so funny, Betty.
    You just love when I stab the frozen microwave breakfast, don't you!
    I thought that was pretty funny too, when I first looked at that video after not seeing it in about 15 years.
    Thanks for the compliment.

  3. I have to confess Joe, I clicked on the link with a heavy heart, thinking, "Sigh, yeah, okay, here we go..". Joe, you DO have a voice, a good one, and this song is GREAT!! Wow, it's certainly a whole lot better than a lot out there in the charts. It's lively, up-beat, and has a great rythum to it - I could see myself driving along to that in the car.

  4. You are way to kind to me, Shrinky!

  5. Hmmm I think we have finally found the job you have been looking for all your a singer/songwriter perhaps??? don't is full of hope and dreams coming true.

  6. Ah, my good doctor. I have an up-coming post that describes why I am very glad that we never succeeded in music when I was very young...for lots of reasons.
    However, TODAY, I wouldn't mind making a living at it!

  7. Joe - I loved the first time I listened. Was even better back then with a little weed.

  8. sometimes, nonsense is the best :)

  9. I think what Dr.Soesie said was right... it's perhaps the beter job which you looking for along this time...
    love your song, Joe!!

  10. Say what? You lost me at the title.

    New here visting, friends with John EcElveen.

    : )

  11. Yep, you are exactly right, Soccer Mom! It is complete nonsense!

  12. Those lyrics sound like what goes on in my brain most times...
    pretty creative!
