Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Garth Brooks- Friends In Low Places + Pinkard and Bowden  – I’ve Got Friends In Crawl Spaces The Ballad Of Jeffrey Dahmer

Growing up in Indy we had Bob and Tom on the  radio every morning doing the  funniest stuff. One of their regular guests were a couple of guys that did parodies, one of which has for years been stuck in my head to where I can’t possibly sing the correct lyrics to Garth Brooks’ Friends In Low Places. It’s probably my horror fan side but this week I thought I’d share both songs and see if I can trick anyone else into loudly singing “crawl spaces” every time Garth is played. Oh and if you like this one they have many many more songs out there.

Lyrics:

Blame it all on my roots
I showed up in boots
And ruined your black tie affair
The last one to know
The last one to show
I was the last one
You thought you’d see there
And I saw the surprise
And the fear in his eyes
When I took his glass of champagne
And I toasted you
Said, honey, we may be through
But you’ll never hear me complain
‘Cause I’ve got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I’ll be okay
I’m not big on social graces
Think I’ll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I’ve got friends in low places
Well, I guess I was wrong
I just don’t belong
But then, I’ve been there before
Everything’s all right
I’ll just say goodnight
And I’ll show myself to the door
Hey, I didn’t mean
To cause a big scene
Just give me an hour and then
Well, I’ll be as high
As that ivory tower
That you’re livin’ in
‘Cause I’ve got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I’ll be okay
I’m not big on social graces
Think I’ll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I’ve got friends in low places
‘Cause I got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
And I’ll be okay
Well, I’m not big on social graces
Think I’ll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I got friends in low places
‘Cause I got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
And I’ll be okay
Well, I’m not big on social graces
Think I’ll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I got friends in low places
‘Cause I got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
And I’ll be okay
Well, I’m not big on social graces
Think I’ll slip on down to

Lyrics:

I made quite a splash
I hacked and I slashed
My way to the top of Page One
The cops even checked
But they didn’t suspect
I was carving up fellers for fun
Yes, I never thought
I’d finally get caught
I hope that they all rest in peace
‘Cause I’m locked away
What more can I say
‘Cept what I told the police

Aw, I’ve got friends in crawl spaces
I’ve got arms and legs and a few faces
Stashed all around
In different parts of town
Well I met ’em in bars on a friendly basis
Now I got ’em in jars and flower vases
Oh, I’ve got friends
In crawl spaces

I know I was wrong
I just don’t belong
I guess you’ve heard that one before
But the guys they all dig me
I’m like Eleanor Rigby
There’s a face in a jar by my door
I must be insane
Got an abnormal brain
What else could I do to get laid
The guys that I date met a terrible fate
They ended up lightly sautéed

Aw, I’ve got friends in crawl spaces
Every shape and size and all races
All blood and guts
Man, I must be nuts
Well, I got one that’ll really kill ya
I’m the poster child for necrophilia
I’ve got friends
In crawl spaces

(Aw, We’re really cooking now)

Well, I’ve got friends in crawl spaces
I’m the queer that made Milwaukee famous
Oh, I’ve got friends
In crawl spaces
