The Ballad of George Alan Rekers

I couldn't resist...

This was a quicky with my Macbook's built-in camera and microphone, so the quality ain't there. But I had fun recording it :-).

Note that "The Lord" paid for George Rekers' European cruise. I wonder what people who donated money to Rekers in order to do "the Lord's work" think about all this? Probably still in denial, alas...

  1. Ooh, Badtux, you need to re-record it with your best equipment - I think this one needs to go viral.

    The only other thing still on my wishlist? A line about "lifting luggage." That's a tough rhyme, unless you're willing to stoop real low to "buggerage." Which I'm pretty sure isn't a word, though it might make a good neologism - bugger plus underage?

  2. There *is* a line about lifting luggage. It's in the 3rd verse:

    Oh Lord, won't you buy me an adopted son
    My rentboy is fine but soon he'll be gone
    I need everyday a boy my luggage to lift
    Oh Lord won't you buy me an adopted son

    Sort of subtle, but I couldn't resist that bit about lifting luggage, even if I had to scramble the sentence a bit to fit it in ;).

    I'll see about getting things back together to do decent recording... this one was a fun quicky, but you're right, it deserves to be recorded with something besides a cheesy computer microphone ;).
