People who say "Fuck off" to each other onstage to get a cheap laugh should be publicly horsewhipped, but...

This is funny. And musical jokes are few and far between these days so thanks for posting.

A desire to play "No Woman No Cry" by Bob Marley is the only possible excuse for recycling these chord changes.

In a similar fashion, any poem by Emily Dickinson can be turned into a country song. I've tried it on a few of her nearly 600 poems, and succeeded.

Have a go yourself. Here are the lyrics http://www.bartleby.com/113/ choose your own tunes.
