What Would Lemmy Do?

This is another poem I converted into a song for my family band The CheeseBergens. You can see the lyric video my husband made here. It’s pretty funny!

Our ode to Lemmy Kilmister, in loving memory:

Lemmy he don’t really walk on water
But he just might sleep with your daughter
And gonna save your soul
He might save rock n’ roll

He came to earth on a motorcycle
And when he did he chose he disciples
Then they went to rehearsal
Philthy Phil and Wurzel

What would Lemmy do? 3x
Whatever he’d do, he’d do it better than you

Lemmy will save us from terrorist attacks
With just a pipe and a shot of Jack
He don’t use no nukes
He wears his Daisy Dukes

And Lemmy he might never make it to heaven
He’s got a Marshall amp that goes to 11
Try nailing him to a cross
And he’ll tell you to get lost

What would Lemmy do? 3x
Whatever it is, he’ll do it better than you

But Lemmy’s he’s a good man
He’ll give you the shirt off his back
He can make the starving a feast
From a burger and a shot of Jack
And when he speaks wisdom comes
That is so true so amazing
It frees your soul though you’d admit
You’ve no freakin’ clue what he’s sayin’

Lemmy wasn’t born in 4 BC
It was a few years later you see
And now he’s living in sin
With Mary Magdalene

And there was no immaculate conception
He’s probably on his 3rd resurrection
He’s coming back from the dead
To tour with Motorhead

What would Lemmy do? 3x
Whatever it is he’d do it better than you.

  1. Can it be that you already posted the lyrics once? The title and lyrics sound familiar. Anyway, It turned out fantastic. I love the sound, the melody, the whole arrangement! Awesome, CheesBergens!

      • Did you know young Marissa of the 12 mentions of Mary in the New Testament, 11 mentions are regarding, and post the death of a Jesus, a mortal until Roman Emperor Constantine decided he should be divine. 1 gospel (in the Gospel of Luke) mentions her pre the event and not at all as the ‘whore’ Pope Gregory the Great in 691AD decided she would be known as a ‘whore’. In 1969 The Vatican admitted Gregory was out of order and declared Mary a proper, regular gal! No one seemed to take any notice. Such is the way of things.

  2. The CheeseBergens are going to go platinum with this one. Or at least sharp cheddar! Lemmy’s Daisy Dukes had me LOL, low-hanging plums could be a problem with that look. Well done, Marissa and Co! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, that’s a pretty famous picture and there’s a story to go with it. You know the skater shirts guys wear? Well there was a band rehearsing near Lemmy and he was in the daisy dukes. They said ‘hey Lemmy, what’s up with those shorts?’ And he said ‘what’s up with your shorts? Those are longs… These are shorts!’

  3. There is a visual that came with the lyrics …
    “Lemmy will save us from terrorist attacks
    With just a pipe and a shot of Jack
    He donโ€™t use no nukes
    He wears his Daisy Dukes”
    … that I find vaguely disturbing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I liked the way it turned out with music and your husband is quite entertaining (and hilarious). Marissa, you covered all the slimy “bases” with what would Lemmy do? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Oh my goodness! This was awesome. I remember the poem and am so happy to hear the Cheeseburgens sing it. Love Love the guitar in this – you guys are amazing! How fun to be able to get creative with your family. You rock (literally!)
    Lemmy would be proud ๐Ÿ™‚
