1. (Mr Mordenus)
I was standin' all alone, at the train station in Crankenhurst
I had just finished my lunch, roast beef and liverwurst
Well, I looked out my window
And I'll tell you what I saw first
(In Crankenhurst)

2. (J.A.Stewart)
There was James Dean in his Spyder and old Brando on his Triumph-T,
I saw Elvis in his Caddy with Marilyn upon his knee;
Well they pulled into the station, came inside and sat right next to me...
How could this be?

3. (Bud)
there was a nip to the air with a clear blue sky
snow in the gutter but i never asked why
the driveway was so shiny and black
my buddy said come on climb in the back
well i went around the car and my feet went out from under
smashed my shoulder on the tarmac
and it frankenhurts!

4. (SmokeyVW)
I said, "Sorry Elvis,
Should I take you to the hospital?"
He said, "Thank ya, thank ya very much,
But our schedule is very full."
Then he said, "Anyone ever mention
That you look like Martin Mull?"

5. (michaeljayklein)
Well, Sinatra left the limo with a bottle of Jack in his hand
And he shooby-doobed and ring-a-dinged his way up to the barbeque stand
They say, "How'd you like your burger today?"
He said, "I'll do it myself and say I did it my way!"

6. (TheApplesauceProject)
Well, the party started jumping to the sounds of rock and roll
We were dancing and singing and really getting out of control
Even though there was no time to rehearse
It was time for me to sing this verse
In Crankenhurst

7. (J.A.Stewart)

The Crowd Goes Wild!!!!!
I'm holding my lighter aloft and my thumb is on fire and I don't care. As zany as this tune is, the sheer musical skill that everyone is bringing to the party is rock-solid dead-on superb. This is hands-in-the-air WILD!

Awesome!
This is entirely too much fun.

No need to rewrite!
Just write a new verse... it's totally within the parameters of the challenge, after all. :D

Verse 1-7
Just the follow on lead break that was needed, JA. Nice one. And Bud, don't rewrite (I liked the change of style of verse 3), just add more! Thanks, guys. Peter

hilarious!
any song with the word liverwurst has my deep respect. love the changing scenes feel of this, like we are moving from one scene to another, with a loose narrative 9look like martin mull?!?!?)

love the tribute to johnny m's famous apple sauce project.

and abruptly, it ends, and i am left very happy for some reason!

Crankenhurst Challenge - Verse 1-7 (Inst. Break)
Loved this from the off, a good honest to goodness rockin' ditty. It was things like this that first got me interested in music. Nice clean production so well balanced.

A great collab.
Those beginning vocals are heavy need some fat reverb'd electric guitar behind them. :)

What a great idea...
Took me forever to get here for a listen, but this is such a cool collaboration. Lots of talented folks here who really have a feel for lyrics and whose individual, unique performances make this so much fun to listen to. ... Instrumental accompaniment is also so engaging, esp. that very cool piano as the piece moves along. Congratulations to all on a superb performance.

Very uplifting and enjoyable - nice eight to the bar boogie rhythm. Most enjoyable. Party atmosphere very much like the Huey piano Smith recordings and US Bond records from around the same time. Loved it.
