Pinching their pennies
Nickels and dimes
Gonna get funky
In the maritime

Passing the hours
All day at the pool
Waiting for midnight
On a weekend cruise

He can do Elvis
She does Cher
He's owning the mic
And she's selling that stare

Waiting in the shadows
For their turn to groove
Smokin' on the water
Karaoke cool

He's polished his loafers
And combed his goatee
She's packed up her Spanx
And spandex capris

Polyester white
On his gyrating hips
Reflect off her sequins
and frosted pink lips



Give them their 15 minutes
And they'll rock you to the core
Singing Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves
And King Creole


I love this song! It has that sound and feel similar to Dire Straights. I like the Mark Knopler guitar sound. Nice rhythm also. Instrumentation is very good.

Everyone needs to write a karaoke song. this cool..

Never did I think that I would hear a song about Karaoke, but here it is AND it's a fun song and a good listen. Hats off to you for even attempting to write about such a subject , but another hat off for making it work, fun and an enjoyable listen. Bravo!!!

Cool off kilter and indie vibe, well constructed tune , very nice guitar. maybe cross between Mark Knopfler and talking Heads.

Excellent song. Very professional performance. Love the guitars, reminds me of Mark Knopfler! Great lyrics too. Very catchy.

Really cool entertaining tune with an original idea. Song has a really good vibe from start to finish. Accompaniment is ideal for this piece. Lyrics are good and witty.

This song reminds me of Dire Straits "Sultans of Swing", but I like the campy subject and lyrics. Campy but kind of cute and sentimental. The instrumentation is great and the production quality is top notch.
