    Default Solved: Please Help!

    This is a bit of a novelty song, probably country music. I have lyrics but cannot find who it is or the title. Going mad. Please help...

    "There was me and Jack working Duval Street
    singing our songs by the dock
    When this TV director came looking for extras
    said he needed our pretty faces right down the block

    They were making some kind of commercial
    About the beer we like here in Key West
    And we had to do was go sit on a stool
    and do what we really do best

    He said they were paying a C-note
    We really needed the bread
    So we pointed our feet to that bar down the street
    lit up like a Hollywood set

    Now there were camera and cables on every table
    and we were grinning from ear to ear
    It was almost like stealin' that how we were feelin'
    when they passed 'round these big mugs of beer

    They said "Now, boys, just try to act thirsty
    and sit down here right at the bar
    and just try to pretend that you're out on a bender..."
    I said Buddy we're with you so far

    They gave me the line "It's less fillin'"
    and Jack got the line "great taste"
    and they yelled 'rehearsal' and we started acting
    with beer foam all over our face

    They yelled take 1 and filled up our glasses
    Stuck a big busty blonde on my lap
    Jack said "tastes great" and I said less filling
    This acting stuff sure is a snap

    Well I thought they would hand us an Oscar
    whenthe director said "beauitiful, kids"
    "But can you give me more soul?"
    I said hell, let her roll and they shouted take 2 and we did

    Well those hot lights sure kept us sweatin'
    and the beer got messed up with the lines
    Jack said it tastes fillin', I said gets you drunker
    the director yells take 29!


    >>>>>>>>

    it goes on for about 6 minutes and is really more spoken than sung

    any help would be great

    try Bob Gibson - Making a mess (of commercial success)
    pretty much the same lyrics as given by you
    he's a US folk singer and this song was on his last CD (he died 1996)

    here's his homepage sorry that I do not have a sample so far..

    here are at least some samples from the LP (not the song in question though) but maybe you recognize his voice: Amazon.com: Makin' a Mess: Bob Gibson Sings Shel Silverstein: Music: Bob Gibson

    Smile Wow!

    That's it! After years of searching, it took you no time! I humbly bow in your presence my friend. Thank you so very much. Now, if only the song was on itunes... oh, well.

    Thanks again!
