An Ode To Carlos....

Also known as e90post UK's love song to Carlos sang to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody (by Queen should you not know):

Is this the rail leaves?
Is this Fandango, C
Caught in my dad's ride
No escape from p*** takers, see

Open my flies, torch up to the skies and see,
I'm just a rich boy, I beat those slow M3s
Because the diesel come, it can go, at the 'Ring, they don't know...
Anyway the (bi)turbo blows doesn't really matter to me, to me

Mama, just missed a ban,
Used dad's revs til they reached red, lost his torch and raced a Fed,
Mama, dad's car's so much fun,
But now I've gone and thrashed it all away.

Mama, ooooh, They're so mean and make me cry,
If I don't post again this time tomorrow,
Carrry on, Carry on,
Til the car is left in tatters.

Look mate, my time was done,
Not fourteen secs down the line,
Car was shaking, it's not mine.
Goodbye driving licence, it's got to go,
Gotta chase that Fox's behind and spread the truth......
Mama, ooooh, I don't want to lie,
I sometimes wish my box was not so small.

I see a little silhouetto of a fox,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche I was done by Fandango! (or he's called Carlos Fandango)
Diesel goes like lightning,
Carlos' driving's frightning, "d"
Galileo, (Galileo), Galileo, (Gallileo), Gallileo Fandango, Hisdaddiescar-oh-oh-oh
He's just a rich boy, nobody loves he, he's just a rich boy from a rich family,
Spare his dad's car, a nice E92-d,
Diesel come, It can go, At the 'Ring, They Don't know...
Northern meet? No, we will not let you go!
Let him go?
Northern meet? No, we will not let him go!
Let me go, we will not let you go
Let me go, we will not let you go
No,No,No,No,No,
Oh northern lads, northern lads, northern lads, let him go.
e90post, has a p***-take put aside for me.... for me... for me....

So you think you can race me in your slow M5 ?
So you think you can time me and prove wrong my lies ?
No.... foxy... can't do this to me foxy....
Just gotta get out, just gotta get max revs from gear.

Carlos really matters, anyone can see.
Carlos really matters.... to, errr well, I could say "me" but that would sound camp.

Here are some of my favorite country and western titles while were on the musical theme

1. Get Your Biscuits In The Oven And Your Buns In Bed
2. Get Your Tongue Otta My Mouth 'Cause I'm Kissing
You Goodbye
3. Her Teeth Was Stained, But Her Heart Was Pure
4. How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?
5. Can't Get Over You, So Why Don't You Get Under Me?
6. Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling
7. Got In At 2 With a 10, And Woke Up At 10 With a 2.
8. Hate Every Bone In Your Body Except For Mine
9. Just Bought A Car From A Guy That Stole My Girl,
But The Car Don't Run, So I Figure We Got An Even Deal

Poor Mr. Fandango. Hopefully he laughs along.

You are merciless at tweaking that boy's tail

hi silverbmwz3, bloody good effort but...

im really not sure how to take it, and everyones comments..

on one hand, im quite appreciative of the effort and lengths you went to ''take the piss'' and that i must be quite high on your list of ''things to do''

silverbmwz3 list of things to do
''1) log onto e90post.com and rip the piss out of carlos
2) lay a cable
3) make sweet love to my hand)''

etc

but on the other hand, im thinkin its quite serious and that people dont think much to me and instead of just finding it funny, finding it funny cuz they actually think im a knob!

....Carlos SINGS the FANTASTIC new lyrics Paul has re-worked!

Can't say fairer than that!

Viv

BTW- the other alternative I'd like to see, would be for a conference call on Skype with ALL of us talking part, singing the lyrics with the original Bohemian Rhapsody playing in the background!

Don't take it to heart Carlos. We don't think you are a knob.

It's all in fun and I would genuinely feel bad if you thought we'd gone too far. Most of the altered lyrics are just silly jokes that we made up.

For instance we don't really believe that you live in a small box or pleasure foxes.

Carl, as NFS has insinuated, you've taken a lot of 'stick' from all of us.

I hope it hasn't made you feel worse-for-it.

We do all really 'love' you!

Now just don't go & edit this, or I won't be amused, ok!

Now, please sing those lyrics....please!

Take your time (as long as it's by this weekend) & send me a recording of those soulful lyrics in your own voice, ok!

Either that, or we ALL do it!

Viv

NFS I have to disagree I really do think Carlos pleasures foxes.

Carlos> I'm gutted you think this was any kind of negativity towards you. I thought from all the laughs (with you, not at you) in the past and my occasional defence of you you'd know it was a friendly banter. We don't think you area knob. We know it. Jus kidding. You are a real character and I think its fair to say the forums are livelier since you've been around. You should be flattered by all the attention. Like Steve implies, I just want to oust the fox.

Carlos must sing!
