at transcribing some lyrics?

I ask as I am (I'm sure I've mentioned this once or twice) giving the site a new look and expanding it. In November. Hopefully. I already have a bunch of lyrics done to go up there (and now some tabs thanks to fans) but was wondering if anyone wanted to take on a song and thump out the words and send them to me to include.

The Guys (its a nice name for them I think) are ok about the lyrics appearing online on the site so no worries there. I've cleared it with them. Credit given to the kind souls who help me out. And I'll promise not to poke you with a stick for a week. How does that sound? 8)

Songs I already have done are

Hotties
Hiphopapotamus v Rhymenocerous (or is it Business Socks)
Bowie
Petrov, Yelyena and me
Pencils In The Wind
Bus Drivers Song
Albi

Anyone up for say

K.I.S.S.I.N.G (part 2)
Angels
Something Special for the ladies
Jenny
Think About It

or any of the others

Post them here or email them in

Cheers
Sherry

Listen to a Conchords song over and over? No problem! I'd be glad to help out. I'll give Kissing (Pt. 2) and Angels a go. I'll get back to you!

I found this here: http://groups.msn.com/WackoMiddleEarthS ... cords.msnw

Maybe Andria could check it and see if it's correct?

"K.I.S.S.I.N.G." Part A and Part B

*Speaking*
Bret: To be honest with you, being in um, being in an obviously popular folk band, um, you know, we get our perks, um...
Jemaine: Tell them how, um, lots of women always want to kiss us.
B: Yeah. Sometimes- well, not sometimes, often- after the show, women, and girls, they want to kiss us.
J: Yeah. Well, that's true, I suppose, I never really thought about that, but yeah, now that you come to mention it...
B: But, um... Nah, it's a lot of fun.
J: It's quite nice.
B: Yeah.
J: I mean, it's only polite to go along with it.
B: If someone kisses you, you just don't say "no," you know, do you?
J: Well, not if they paid twenty bucks.
B: *pause* To see the show, to see the show.
J: Or fifteen bucks, concession
B: Yeah.
J: Get a little kiss.
B: Yeah. Sort of a student kiss.
J: *Laughs* Student kiss?
B: Pensioner kiss, that sort of stuff. Just a little peck, it's a bit dry, sort of comes away with you. But, uh...
J: A group concession kiss.
B: True, yeah. Ten, if there's ten, you know, it's obviously... works out for everyone. There are two types of guys, you've probably all heard that, um...
J: Yeah, I've heard that.
B: And, um...
J: Yeah, I'm one of them, and Bret's the other--
B: I'm the other sort. Yeah, pretty much got it covered. But when it becomes, uh, not well, I guess a problem, sort of, you have a kiss, and then sometimes they want to take it a little bit further, *music starts* and that's when it becomes inappropriate for someone that you've only just met.

*Song*
A kiss is not a contract,
But it's very nice,
Oh yes, it's very nice.

Just because you've been exploring my mouth
Doesn't mean you get to take an expedition further south

No, a kiss is not a contract,
But it's very nice,
It's very, very nice.

Just because we've been playing tonsil-hockey
Doesn't mean you get to score the goal that's in my jockeys

Oh, just because I'm in an acoustic folk band
It doesn't mean I only want poontang
I can't go around loving everyone
I just wouldn't get anything done...

Because, I'm only one man, baby.
We're only two men, ladies,
Babies, pretty babies.

(Note [again]: It's kinda hard to figure out who is saying what in the begining, so don't hold us to this!)

They change with each performance slightly, so am not overly worried :) Just let me know which one you are taking them from should be fine :)

Thanks in advance :D

All seemed pretty much okay, Nicole! That saved me a lot of typing. I tweaked a few tiny things. The only word I'm having trouble with is when Bret says "...Oh, just because I’m in an Acoustic Folk Band, It doesn’t mean I only want ???" What? I thought he said "bootay" but then I read the write up (up there *points*) and it says "poontang".
Sherry, or someone else with sharp ears, what does he say?

Also, why, oh why did I volunteer for "Angels"?! All the ah ah aha ah, etc is driving me crazy! :rolleyes:

Thanks! -Andie

A Kiss is not a contract
But it’s very nice,
Oh yes it’s very nice

Just because you’ve been exploring my mouth
doesn’t mean you get to take an expedition further south, nooo

A Kiss is not a contract
But it’s very nice
It’s very, very nice.

Just because we’ve been playing Tonsil Hockey
doesn’t mean you get to score the goal that’s in my jockeys.

Oh, just because I’m in an Acoustic Folk Band
It doesn’t mean I only want poontang
I can’t go around loving everyone
I just wouldn’t get anything done.

Oh because, I’m only one man, Baby
We’re only two men, ladies,
babies, oh pretty babies.

I'll tackle Angels if you like, it's one of my favourite songs so I wouldn't mind listening to it on repeat. :D

And Bret definitely says poontang. It's slang for sex or er...a womans...thing. You know.

Ah, don't worry. That's the kind of thing I think you'd want to be ignorant to. :lol:

All right, if the ah ahs drive me up a wall as well I'll pass it back to you. ;)

Good for you, Sherry. You're probably getting more work done on your redesign than I'm getting done on my new site. :) As I said with the Q&A, though, it's all in the anticipation!
