Musician's Fight Song
Saturday, April 17, 1999

(GK: Garrison Keillor, SS: Sue Scott, TK: Tom Keith, TR: Tim Russell)

We are musicians and we're here for the music contest
We're going to win this sucker and you are not (ha ha ha)
We'll take the money and we'll buy
Us a red Mercedes
And move to West L.A. and start a band called
We'll wear black clothing
And we'll never do laundry because
We are bohemians and life is a song (la la la)
We'll win this contest and
If we do not win it,
We're still musicians (yo!) and we're extremely cool.
