Some think their last album was phony.
"Not Genesis," you say? That's baloney!
Though I may not love Ray
I would still have to say
There's great music there from Mike and Tony.

An idea to restore the Lamb
Was aborted 'cause Pete failed to cram
the rehearsals, it's thought
into a life that's fraught
with too many distractions, oh damn!

Banks felt like taking a stand,
To meet all his fan's demands,
He walked to his piano,
And saw Paul Dianno,
And said "You're in the wrong band".

I tried. I failed.

There once was a strange woman who
On the tube split herself into two
When her body went "plop"
A lady yelled "STOP"
How the rod held itself no one knew.

When it wasn't a previous wife
It's lyrics that caused grief and strife.
When stuck for some words
Phil could be heard
Singing the phrase "All of my life"

Jannie caught the infection
And fell in love with One Direction
Sally went all rah-rah
For a girl called Lady Gaga

But I was raised a much different way
With "Turn it on Again" and "Your Own Speacial Way"
Now a Genesis fan is all I'll ever be
And I could never be more happy.

With Pete, Steve, Phil, Mike and Tony
My "friends" thought it was all baloney
But I fell in love with this musical bliss
Now they will never know what they missed

I'm proud I never caught the fever
And fell in love with Justin Beiber
Because Genesis is where I'll stay
And listen to them every day

Lady, I liked the infection/One Direction rhyme! One week on the Russell Howard show it was said that one of that band had caught chylamidia from a koala, and I thought of this when the rhyme came up!

NoSon, I also like the idea of Tony's aborted collaboration with Paul Di'Anno (ex-Iron Maiden)!

So what was this great band to do?
Whenever they played it, fans booed!
They realised at last,
what they had to do fast,
was get mike the bassist to do the drums and then we'll know that all of the rhythms will be completely correct and the song will sound wonderful and everyone will love it.
tongue tongue tongue tongue laugh

This makes me laugh so much.
Anyway

There was a band whose name we all know
that played some songs like Cinema Show.
Everyone loved it, up until Undertow
and after that they thought it was all crap
when Phil took his laugh from a rap.

Some only think that Gabriel was best.
Others think Phil was the way to go.
Now the Gabriel fans won't give it a rest.
And think that "The Knife" is better than "Domino".

So what are the the poor three man fans to do
When even the same fans will beat their favorite song.
They just sit there and take it like nothing is new
Because they know the band did nothing wrong.

They see the hate everyday
In Youtube, and internet, and even the press
But they take it in stride and won't listen or obey
To the cruel remarks and sick jokes because Phil won't were a red dress.

Why all this hate, some will never know
We pray for the day that the fighting will end
Till the day that a Gabriel fan will have a go
And actually accept songs like "Whodunnit?" and "Turn It On Again"

I'm sure THOSE songs would work for Gabe fans...

We can only hope for the day they do accept them.

I don't see why I should be bothered that other people don't enjoy Whodunnit and Turn It On Again... Their loss! wink

While I'm commenting, I suppose I ought to come up with another limerick...


Some fans dislike Hold On My Heart,
But I'd tell them right from the start:
Please try to keep kind,
And do bear in mind
At least it's not about farts!

They say that it's got rubbish lyrics
And that there's really no substance in it
But don't be too sad,
It's not all that bad -
It's better than one of my limericks!

And the music is actually quite good
I'd explain all the chords if I could!
Though I have to admit
If I were caught listening to it,
I'd hide my face under a hood! tongue tongue

There's not that much more I can say -
I don't want to go on all day.
And if you think I'm wrong,
You really don't like the song,
At least it's a good toilet break, eh?

(Sorry that the punchline of the 1st verse is sadly similar to a previous limerick of mine... embarassed grin)

The entire limerick was about how five maners brutally make fun of the three man era stuff, and how the three maners cope. I mean have you SEEN the Youtube comments on some songs? Total flame wars and fights.

There once was a man from Peru
Who dreamt he was eating his shoe.
His name's not important.
He's on the wrong forum
And I think he might be trolling you.

There once was a man from Peru
Who dreamed he was eating his shoe
He woke with a fright in the middle of the night
To find that his dream had come true.
