BRIDGE 1

 

A highlight,

 

Of the musical kind.

 

Shining bright,

 

As when planets align.

 

But they don't sound right,

 

When they're not intertwined.

 

To the songwriter let's give thanks.

 

Fanfare for the common skanks.

 

 

BRIDGE 2

 

Obviously, skanks aren't the subject.

 

Yeah, 'fanfare' is the topic of this song.

 

But I needed a rhyme,

 

Before I ran out of time.

 

Look man, it's not a crime.

 

Who cares if the lyrics are wrong.

Fan-fare for the common skank.

Fan-fare for the common skank.

Fan-fare for the common skank.
