Tom Smith I Had A Shoggoth 
Another children's song, of the repeating-and-building-chorus variety. To be specific, a parody of the traditional song "I Had A Cat/I Bought Me A Cat". Just... the songs you usually have, with kitties and duckies and puppies, simply aren't up to the task of raising our kids. Don't read the lyrics before listening to it, mmkay? Spoilery and all that. I was originally planning this for last week, but the banjo reminded me of "Stony Peak", which is why both of them have banjo all over the place.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Oh dear lord in Heaven... or should I say dark lord? Tom, this is a real hoot! Love it! But I don't remember the hunchback line about "Not the red one"? I don't remember that from "Young Frankenstein"...

It's not. In fact, I think the line would be, "Not the third switch!" But I co-opted Daffy Duck's "Not the WED one! Don't EVER touch the WED one!"

Oh yeah, I'm going to have to teach this one to the kids.

Well, whatayaknow it's Halloween yet again on the Fump....Brilliant Tom, simply brilliant. Those ad-libs are sweet! Can't wait to hear what you do with "Old McDonald had a Farm". And are you playing a real banjo or is it sampled?
2008-04-25 filkertom
MIDI and samples. O, would that I could play banjo. And someday soon I might get one and try....

Yay! If I ever have spawn of my own, this would be perfect to play in the background as I read the "The Necromicon for Tots" before I tuck them in their little coffins... Loved the Daleks and Young Fronk-en-STEEN jokes. Also, was that a reference to "RE: Your Brains" in there, too?

Thanks so much, gang. elokkin: Sure is.

Love it! Very similar to the traditional American song "I Bought Me A Cat" best known in Aaron Copland's arrangement from "Old American Songs."

"Zombie went 'not eat eyes.'" Tee hee.

The Dalek voice isn't quite right, but the zombie amused me every time.

Tom, this is absolutely brilliant! I suggest you/anyone make a World of Warcraft version using the Warlock's minions. That would be fantastic. ps: get a Fluke ukelele, they are easy to play and kinda sound like banjos

I read that shoggoths appear like they're made of tar. Like asphalt aardvarks. Funny song, BTW.

It's the other song that never ends... and yet somehow it just kept getting more entertaining. Thanks, Tom. Now I'll have this song in my head for the rest of my life.
