Nude

I tried to impress you
but I did not know how
so I took off my shirt
take a look at me now

but this didn't thrill you
you threw up your hands
I mistook that gesture
and pulled down my pants

I was
nude
screwed
and viewed
on the six o'clock news
They said
I was
crude
unglued
and confused
but I've nothing to lose
except for these blues
and the fact that I'm still loving you

I tried to impress you
so I sent you a pic
of my junk, my trunk
I call him Dick

I was
nude
screwed
and viewed
on the six o'clock news
They said
I was
crude
unglued
and confused
but I've nothing to lose
except for these blues
and the fact that I'm still loving you

now I live in a cell
with I big guy named Jake
and I realize I've made
such an awful mistake

they all want to see me
when we shower at night
never wanna be nude
please turn out that light

I was
nude
screwed
and viewed
on the six o'clock news
They said
I was
crude
unglued
and confused
but I've nothing to lose
except for these blues
and the fact that I'm still loving you

I was
nude
screwed
and viewed
on the six o'clock news
They said
I was
crude
unglued
and confused
but I've nothing to lose
except for these blues
and the fact that I'm still loving you

What a sorry saga! Those loss of inhibition moments can lead to problemea. Glad you got this on the board. I like the chorus! Fun rhymes and great delivery. Love the honest emotional feel in the vocals as if this really happened.... wait! Was that really you on the news?

love the rhymes on the chorus..and the verses are well written and entertaining. the classy music and guitar arrangemnt go a long way in keeping it the whole enterprise strangely dignified

This is really very funny. I quite enjoyed it.

The first paragraph already gave me a wide, dumb grin on my face. The rest of the lyrics deliver as well, keeping invested in your escapades, and everything is hilarious (my favorite might be "call him dick"). The chorus progression is surprisingly emotional for the lyrical themes as well. Great work!

Oops! Great idea but sorry outcome for the guy-is this you? Smile

That "nude, screwed and viewed on the six o'clock news" is gonna stay in my head for weeks, John... and I thank you for that. LOL
That's a great hook, to a really good song.

Forgot to comment on this one earlier-- funny take on the prompt. You must be a heck of an actor and musician to deliver these lines without giggling.

This is so fab, did make me laugh, so clever, can't believe where you took this prompt, but it is brilliant and nice, folky melody and put some clothes on!
