Liner Notes

I tried to write a parody-tribute to Mike Skliar based on his chord progression from In America if you're crazy (*10836), but I was really unhappy with my lyrics and my vocals. Since it was just Mike's guitar part that I liked, and Mike did a great job with it already, I didn't see the point... I may still post it though.

Fear not, I knew Mike still deserved his tribute, and I thought this familiar melody really did one of my FAWM-heroes justice. Here's a YouTube link to the original Gatorade video:

Mike - for being a great FAWMer and songwriter, and a great sport, thanks!


Sometimes I dream
That he was me
I've got to say that's how I dream to be
I dream I'm smooth
I dream I groove
Like Mike
If I could be like Mike!

How he can write
It's out of sight
I check his postings nearly every night
The baritone
He's in the zone
Like Mike
If I could be like Mike!
