A Day in the Life of the OU – Miami Game

dayinlife

I’ve done many dorky and dumb things in my life.  I’ve gotten married, sang Devo at karaoke and even created and an obscure local social blog.  But none of those things compare to this amazing achievement:  I wrote some song lyrics about a sad football game.  It’s called “A Day in the Life of the OU – Miami Game.”  If you have nothing better to do today, check it out after the jump.

*Before we go any farther, if you’re not familiar with the Beatles, stop reading.  Instead, go look at this ridiculously hot picture of Joleen Chaney from her Twitter account.

If you do know a thing or two about the Beatles, but need a minor refresher on the song, here is a YouTube clip of the masterpiece that inspired the lyrics below.

And here it is:

“A Day in the Life of the OU – Miami Game.”

I read the news today, oh boy.
Stoops and the boys had lost another game.
And though the game did make me mad,
Well I just had to laugh,
I saw the mustache.
It helped make Landry a star.
He didn’t notice the defensive end rushing him.
Offensive lineman stood and stared
Like they’d never seen a defensive end before
This is what happens when the team under performs

I saw a film today, oh boy.
Venables defense has just lost the war.
A crowd of fans turned away,
But I just had to look,
Having see the Boise hook.
Stoops loves to turn you on…

Woke up, got out of bed,
Saw the Sooners pull ahead.
Found my way downstairs and drank shot
And looking at the score, I did another shot.
Ryan Reynolds is slow and fat,
Runs a 40 in 5 seconds flat.
Found my way upstairs and grabbed a radio
Jim Traber spoke and I went into a dream.

Noooooooooooooo-ohhhhhhhh,
Noooooooooooooo-ohhhhhhhh,
Noooooooooooooo-ohhhhhhhh,
Noooooooooooooo-ohhhhhhhh,

I read the news today, oh boy.
DeMarco Murray ran up the middle again,
And though the holes were rather small,
They didn’t pass the ball
Nobody was really sure why they were scared to pass the damn football.
Stoops loves to turn you on…

I don’t know if that was cute, genius or simply pathetic.  Whatever it is, I’m still frightened that this idea popped up in my head.  Seriously, I’m driving home from work and “A Day in the Life” is playing on KRXO and before you know it I’m writing out fake song lyrics about OU on my laptop.  I think I may too big of an OU fan.  I should also be thankful that I didn’t hear “Benny and the Jets.”  Wait!  Ah, nevermind.

  1. To answer your cute/genius/pathetic question…. I will say this:

    The whole thing is worth it for what you did with Paul’s “Woke up/Got of bed” bridge verse.

    That part IS genius.

  2. listening to traber after a sooner loss, barely able to contain his glee, is definitely pouring salt on ones wound. the words to the song are right on.

  3. How can a song about an event so terrible make me feel so happy?

    Favorite Beatles song ever, by the way.
