    Default The Crusties (a la Theme from The Monkees)

    Ok...I kinda forgot some of the stuff I wanted to put into this from when I first thought of it till now...but here goes:

    The Crusties

    Here we come, riding
    Down the Street.
    We get the dirtiest looks from
    Ev’ry Mutt meet.
    Hey, Hey, we’re the Crusties
    And people say we’re too old to be around.
    But we’re too busy fighting fires
    To let the administration get us down.

    We crawl down dark, smokey hallways,
    Do what no one else can do.
    We don’t have time to get restless,
    There’s always a call that’s new.
    Hey, Hey, we’re the Crusties
    And people say we’re too old to be around
    But we’re too busy fighting fires
    To let the administration get us down.

    We’re just trying to be Crusty,
    Fight fire, run EMS, and Extricate.
    We’re training the next generation
    And making sure the Mutts don’t have a say.

    Anytime or Anywhere,
    Just call 911
    Guess who’ll be responding there.

    Hey, Hey, we’re the Crusties
    And people say we’re too old to be around
    But we’re too busy fighting fires
    To let the administration get us down.

    (break)

    Hey, Hey, we’re the Crusties
    And people say we’re too old to be around
    But we’re too busy fighting fires
    To let the administration get us down.

    We’re just trying to be Crusty,
    Fight fire, run EMS, and Extricate.
    We’re training the next generation
    And making sure the Mutts don’t have a say.

    Hey, Hey, we’re the Crusties
    Hey, Hey, we’re the Crusties

    Hey, Hey we’re the Crusties
    You never know where we’ll respond
    So you’d better get ready,
    We may be comin’ to your house.

    You have outdone yourself Major Adze. Venilation, extraction, table football, songwriting, the list of your talents keeps growing. Thanks for brightening my night and making me laugh.

    It's great. Did you put it up on the greatest hits thread?

    I was at Walmart picking up cat litter and diapers (I have a bad bladder control problem....THAT'S A JOKE!). I wound up also picking "The Monkees Greatest Hits". I used to listen to in on Vinyl all the time. Anywho, I popped the CD into my car and "The Monkees" started playing and right away "The Crusties" was being formed in my head.

    Now we need a logo shaped like a helmet ala the Monkees guitar.

    This was certainly worth the keystrokes to get into this thread.

    You guys are ****ing geniuses and it amazes me on a daily basis just how creative you guys are. I hoist a gently cascading Guinness in your direction. Long live crust.

    Great job; it's real catchy. I think we just found our official IACOJ anthem. Everyone; and one and a two.......Now performing the interpretive dance: Bobby and Sissy! And for the accordian version: Myron Floren.
