Alternative Lyrics of The Month / September

Well, we're all living dangerously these days, so I figure, why not actually post myself singing one of my own songs a capella? So, if any are so inclined, you can learn the tune directly from me. This is one of a handful of songs for which I've also composed the tune that goes with the words, not just written new words to someone else's tune.
This also happens to be my one and only bluegrass type song. Hope you enjoy it!

Skunk Ain't A Weasel

 

Tune and Parody Lyrics:  Patricia A. Leslie

 

Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

No, Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

Though they share some common ways

They don’t share much DNA

No, skunk ain’t a weasel any more.

 

Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

No, Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

Well, there’s critters with scent glands

Found in many other lands

Got just one thing in common, all carnivores.

 

Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

No, Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

Hey, but don’t you shed no tears

He’s got forty million years

Of family hist’ry in his store.

 

Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

No, Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

Hell, he ain’t no Must’lidae

Got to say Mephitidae

That’s surely a mouthful and a chore.

 

Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

No, Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

Now his buddy Prof Dragoo

Has enlightened me and you

But has he yet told the Skunk the score?

 

Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

No, Skunk ain’t a weasel any more

Yep, they got some common ways

But don’t share much DNA

No, skunk ain’t a weasel any more.
