This song is about evolution, it is designed to educate all ages, and so I have twinned it with a sequence from a famous educational animation that you can see in full here. Said animation was released in 1971, and so was being produced in the same year I was, which I think is a nice touch.

LYRICS – ‘Darwin Again’ by Tim Ireland

(Sung to ‘You Win Again’ by The Bee Gees)

I couldn’t figure out
Why you went and gave me these
new mutated genes

Didn’t know you’d let me
hand them down
To my babies

Find out
everybody grows
according to their scene

I’m surprised my kind are still around

One day I’m gonna have to make another
That looks and sounds like me
They gotta be a little different, though
Characteristically

It’s not right
You can’t fight
This battle of life you see

Darwin again!
So over time
we do nothing but compete

There’s new life
on earth
New qualities
see me through

Darwin again!
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can

So I’ll win
Survivin’
Much longer than you!

Oh girl
New world
Babies!
A species from now on

I’m gonna
outlive my ancestors
one by one

I’m gonna conquer
and divide
Spread my gene pool
far and wide

Nobody stops
biology
breaking through

You better beware
I swear
I’m gonna
rise above my peers

It’s really strange
to remain unchanged
for eighteen million years!

It’s not right
You can’t fight
This battle of life you see

Darwin again!
So over time
we do nothing but compete

There’s new life
on earth
New qualities
see me through

Darwin again!
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can

So I’ll win
Survivin’
Longer than you!

(New world)

Darwin again!
So over time
we do nothing but compete

There’s new life
on earth
New qualities
see me through

Darwin again!
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can

Darwin again!
So over time
we do nothing but compete

There’s new life
on earth
New qualities
see me through

Darwin again!
Some never try
But if anybody can, we can

This song is based on the conflict between The Beatles during the recording of the album ‘Let It Be’, and is sung according to the melody of the title song. It tells a tale of people losing sight of each other in a sea of correspondence and contracts from the POV of a man of peace struggling to find it. It can also teach you almost all of the alphabet!

Lyrics below the fold.

LYRICS – ‘Letter B’, by Tim Ireland

(Sung to ‘Let It Be’ by The Beatles)

When I find myself in Times New Roman
reading all your guarantees
The font of words of wisdom
Letter B

The quick brown fox is jumping over
lazy dogs and ‘crazy’ me
Your character’s in question
Letter B

If you know
Your ABCs
Won’t you come
And sing with me
‘Did you read my letters?’ Letter B

So let me spell it out in my way
very characteristically:
Yes, I read your letters
Letter B

I’m showing you I read your letters
very effing thoroughly
Each and every letter
Letter B

Letter B
Letter C
Letter D
Letter E
F, G, H, I, J-K-L
M-N-O, P
Q, R, S
T, U, V
W
X, Y and Z
A song about an A-hole
Letter B

(instrumental)

And when I read your letters
I can ignore where we disagree
Because I read the letters
Letter B

It doesn’t take a doctorate
or associate or law degree
I always read your letters
‘Letter B’

Letter B
Letter C
Letter D
Letter E
F, G, H, I, J-K-L
M-N-O, P
Q, R, S
T, U, V
W
X, Y and Z
A song about an A-hole
Letter B

Letter B
Letter C
Letter D
Letter E
F, G, H, I, J-K-L
M-N-O, P
Q, R, S
T, U, V
W
X, Y and Z
Yes, I read your letters! Thoroughly.

I read your letters

We’re all racing through time, most of us only go in one direction, and none of us want to do it alone.

This tells the love story of Doc Brown and Clara Clayton from Back to the Future III, but if you study the lyrics and know the original movie Back to the Future, you will immediately recognise that this song is also about the friendship between Doc Brown and Marty McFly, and that moment right before they captured lightning to send Marty back to the future. Well, *a* future, but that’s another story.

Full lyrics below the fold.

LYRICS: ‘Back to the Future’ version of ‘Time in a Bottle’, by Tim Ireland

(Sung to ‘Time in a Bottle’ by Jim Croce)

If I could control flux capacity
The first thing that I’d like to do

Is to travel through time
In DeLoreans designed
Not for roads
But for me, and for you

If I could go back to the future
Or maybe exist ’til next week

I’d say every way
I could think of ‘I love you’
If only we had time to speak

But it’s ten o clock
you hear the chimes
It’s here and now
we race through time
as partners

You need to find
that special friend
Who’ll stick around
until the end
for starters

For I’ve got a gigawatt of wishes
Bursting to live and come true

I’d break through dimensions
and risk time collapsing
Just to travel
through more time with you

But it’s ten o clock
you hear the chimes
It’s here and now
we race through time
as partners

You need to find
that special friend
Who’ll stick around
until the end
for starters

File this song under ‘as approved by Mary Steenburgen’. Damn right I’m proud.

I’ve decided to bring all of my songs to life through the magic of karaoke, and today I share with you my version of Lionel Richie’s ‘Hello’, with new and improved lyrics about the greatest animated love story of our times: the saga of Scooby-Doo’s unrequited love for Shaggy.

Full lyrics below the fold.

LYRICS: ‘Ruh-roh!’ by Tim Ireland

(sung to ‘Hello’ by Lionel Richie)

I’ve been alone with you so many times
But in my dreams I’ve licked your face
Then you’ve licked mine

My heart is full
These Scooby snacks are yours
Ruh-roh
I can’t hide this anymore

I can see we’re teen cartoons
So I know we’ll keep it clean
But I’ve seen you looking at me
In the Mystery Machine

‘Cause Fred knows just what to say
Velma knows just what to do
But I want to tell you Raggy
Ry ruv ru

When Daphne runs
I watch your flowing hair
I’d tie you down with Fred’s neck scarf
but I don’t dare

I worry I’ll be unmasked every show
Ruh-roh!
Raggy I, Doo, ruv you so

‘Cause I wonder where we are,
and I do not understand
Like we have another mystery
on our mother-jinking hands

Let’s see who the monster is
now we’ve stumbled on some clues
But let me start by saying
Ry ruv ru

(instrumental break)

Ruh-roh!
Raggy I, Doo, ruv you so

‘Cause I want to kiss your face off
as we run from room to room

In an old abandoned building
or amusement park of doom

I should leap into your arms
but I don’t know what you’ll do

And I hope that you’ll say ‘Scooby,’
‘I ruv you’

I couldn’t find a karaoke video that I liked for the Deadpool 2 / MTV Unplugged version of ‘Take On Me’ by a-ha… so I made one.

And now I’ve made one, I’ve found out that they’re a bit like potato chips.

You have been warned.

(Please excuse the age restriction necessitated by adult themes. They won’t all be this violent.)
