Bob Rivers – I Can't Ski Babe lyrics

I Can't Ski Babe
(I Got You Babe - Sonny & Cher)

Since he was young he loved the slopes
Sonny loved careening through the snow
Well I don't ski well, you know that's true
I kissed that tree and now my days are through

I can't ski babe
I can't ski babe

I'm on a chairlift
Up to the King
They won't find my nose
Until next spring

And somewhere out there
Up on a cloud
I hope you found powder
With no trees around

Though we didn't stay together too long
Hope you're not too mad about this song
No I'm not mad, 'cause I'm divine
Now every hill and mountain's lookin' fine

Watch that tree babe
Watch that tree babe

You kicked me right out of your band
(I went out with a younger man)
I loved you, and you dumped me
(I told you to watch out for trees)

He can't ski, babe

Watch that tree babe
Watch that tree babe
I can't ski babe
I can't ski babe
Watch that tree babe
Watch that tree babe

    Bob Rivers is the first true internet star. Bob is a radio announcer and producer. None of his material was ever intended to be released, but fans recorded the troupe's songs and traded them on the net, creating a star in a market that never existed.
    Eventually, the production crew released a cd of Twisted Christmas songs, and More Twisted Christmas songs. Those were the two produced for sale.
    All others are bootleg copies of a very funny and talented production crew.
    Nobody ever said the Bob Rivers Production Crew had good taste, and this proves it! Sonny and cher's mega-hit becomes Sonny's skiing eulogy.
