Song Demo: “Save a Couple o’ Eggs for Me”

“Save a Couple o’ Eggs for Me”

This may be the world’s most hopelessly forlorn, stiff-upper-lipped love song ever. The video is just me and an acoustic guitar, while the music for the Mp3 was done by a Nashville “demo service” where you’d send a tape and lyric sheet and $150 and hope for the best. I later added the vocals.

If you are a performer this song, when done before the right audience (small clubs where adult beverages are served are the best), is guaranteed to leave them belly laughing.

Save a Couple o’ Eggs for Me

I told you that I love you

But you don’t seem to care

You say you’re going off to be with that

New guy somewhere

You say you like me but you love him

He’s won your heart

It’s OK honey I’ll be content

With a different part.

      Save a couple o’ eggs for me

      I call first dibs on your ovaries.

      And when you’re ready for me, honey

      I’ll come through

      I’ll save a couple hundred trillion

      Sperms for you.

      Save a couple o’ eggs for me

      I want to be there to sire your progeny.

      Our genes belong together

      Our kids will be cool

      They’ll get their attitudes from me

      Their looks and brains from you.

You say you’ve only come

To say goodbye

Well darlin’ I want you

To keep this one thing in mind

I’ll love you forever

And there’ll come a time

When you’ll see through him

And you’ll want to be mine.

      So save a couple o’ eggs for me

      Make sure you always use your spermicidal jelly

      And when you’re with him, honey

      Never trust our luck

      Make sure he always wears a rubber

      No matter what.

      Yeah, save a couple o’ eggs for me

      I call first dibs on your ovaries.

      And when you’re with him, honey

      Never trust our luck

      Make he always wears a rubber

      Every time you……

      Save a couple o’ eggs for me

      I want to be there to sire your progeny……
