about

"With their self-titled debut Vincent Gargiulo National Park have knocked it out of the proverbial park. Though the lyrics are precisely hokey they are also witty. They are much like Talking Heads a band that seems at first glance to be a bit silly. But this is of course a con, a wool over the eyes. These songs are lyrical slapstick in the vein of Charlie Chaplin. Vincent Gargiulo National Park may just be the record many people need in their live for these dark and uncertain times which likely lie ahead." - Jamie Robash, No More Division

Track Name: The Enchanted Intro
You’ve rode through the land to see our merry band
Hope you know where you’re going.
There are no thieves or bears. Just one pounding snare.
Hope you know where you’re going.

I want it that way
You understand
The bass will pulsate
To hold your hand

Guitars now light your entry
We know you’ll enjoy your stay
Just remember if you’re lonely
There’s 8 people on the stage making less than minimum wage in this
BAND!!!!!!

You’ve rode through the land to see our merry band
Hope you know where you’re going.
Yes, our name is hard to say but we say it anyway
Hope you know where you’re going.

Your room is furnished
With sophisticated sound
Let your senses diminish
We’ll show you around

Cuz Hot Sax is forthcoming
(Sax Solo)
Just remember if you’re lonely
There’s 8 people on the stage making less than minimum wage in this
BAND!!!!!!

(Ride Through The Forest)

You’ve rode through the land to see our merry band
Hope you know where you’re going.
Track Name: 80's Theme Song
I had it there in front of me
I could feel it in my hands
It was there for me to grab
And I let it fade away

Sometimes you get a second chance
But you botch it up again
Some things just happen once
Some things don’t go as planned

But when everything goes wrong
My 80s theme song comes on

I met a beautiful woman
She looked me in the eye
Neither one of us made a move
We had to go our separate ways

We’re better off as acquaintances
Let’s not call it friends
Let it be circumstance
Friendships always end

But when everything goes wrong
My 80s theme song comes on

I lay in deep reflection
There’s nothing else to do
It’s so quiet in this room
That I’m the only one in the world

But when everything goes wrong
My 80s theme song comes on
Track Name: Nobody Wants Your Homemade Pornography Ralph
Nobody, nobody wants your homemade pornography Ralph
Because it’s weird and it’s just you and it has lousy production values
Ralph, you could do so much better

Go out and find a lady of the night
And you can hold the light while she does all the actions
And the reactions
And then you just might make some money off naked ladies
That’s right! There’s money to made off naked ladies

Cuz nobody, nobody wants your homemade pornography Ralph
Because it’s weird and it’s just you and it has poor production values
Ralph, you could do so much better

Cuz nobody, nobody wants your homemade pornography Ralph
Because it’s weird and it’s just you and frankly, I find it rather rude
Yes I do.
Track Name: I Can't Buy You
I can buy a computer
I can buy an ice cream co-ho-hone
I can buy a scooter
I can buy anything I already own
But they one I thing I want most in life
Is for me to be your wife
And I cry cuz I can’t buy you

I can buy a Mustang
I can buy some curl cream for my hair
I can buy a boomerang
I can buy anything. I don’t really care.
But they one I thing I want most in life
Is for me to be your wife
And I cry cuz I can’t buy you

I don’t know how I got this heartache into me
But now it’s there and it was free

And I cry cuz I can’t buy you

I don’t know how I got this heartache into me
But now it’s there and it was free

I can buy a computer
But I think I’ll buy just an ice cream cone
Track Name: The Sofa That Nobody Wants To See
The sofa that nobody wants to see
He just sits in a little room tucked away in the corner at the Salvation Army
He’s white with a zig zag design like purple & black lightning
And all day and all night he wonders, how’s anybody gonna find me

Sofa, all faded from the sun
Sofa, not wanted by anyone
Sofa, marked down lower than he should be
Sofa, won’t you sit on me
Won’t you sit on me

The sofa that nobody wants to see
He’s got a little 70’s lamp, sits right next to him. Tries to keep him company
He dreams when he was clean and the kids would get up, sit down, and watch tv
But those days are long beside him, he’s lucky not to be on the street

Sofa, don’t put him outside
Sofa, these stains are too heavy to hide
Sofa, still kinda comfy
Sofa, won’t you sit on me
Won’t you sit on me

Sofa, all faded from the sun
Sofa, not wanted by anyone
Sofa, marked down lower than he should be
Sofa, won’t you sit on me.

La de de da da. La de de da da.
Track Name: Hands In Pockets
I got my hands in my pockets
And my pockets in my pants
I got my pants on my skin
They fall off now and then
I got my hands in my pockets
Got my hands in my pockets
Got my hands in my pockets
In my pants

I got my hands in my pockets
And my pockets in my pants
I got my pants on my skin
They fall off now and then
I got my hands in my pockets
Got my hands in my pockets
Got my hands in my pockets
In my…

Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants
Your pants have come off. Your
Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants
I’ve had just enough of your
Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants
Your pants have come off. Your
Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants

I got my hands in my pockets
And my pockets in my pants
I got my pants on my skin
They fall off now and then
I got my hands in my pockets
Got my hands in my pockets
Got my hands in my pockets
In my pants
Track Name: Save Laura
They call it a hotel
But it’s residential
It’s usually chill
But this was Saturday night
Someone took a bite
Out of someone else’s flesh
And now I see that there is only one thing for me to do

Save Laura
Working on that crossword puzzle
Save Laura
I went to check on all the rest
Save Laura
When I came back, she was nowhere to be found
Laura is a vampire now

Josh had a cold
And he was told
For a stuffy nose
You use lots of garlic
It made him less sick
But the solution was a myth
He wasn’t spared by those vampires as bats flying in the air

I can’t believe that Barry survived this whole thing.
He’s got a beard. Is he a werewolf or is he a stylish man?

Save Laura
Working on that crossword puzzle
Save Laura
I went to check on all the rest
Save Laura
When I came back, she was nowhere to be found
Save Laura
There’s some twilight antics going down
Save Laura
Maybe she went to get help in the town.
No! Laura is a vampire now
Laura is biting my neck now
Laura is sucking my blood now
Laura has made me a vampire now.
Track Name: Shem Has Doubts
I need less action. More satisfaction is what I need
Still regretting the beginning. The part I saw there I missed indeed
And there’s no one here to talk about these things
Some common sense is what I believe

My brain is gone. My nerves are shot. Who needs nerves to see?
I throw a dart. Forgot the 50 point mark was me.
And when it’s done, it’ll be done the same old way
I pound my fist in my bag of oats I lay

And all the animals are wondering when they gonna get off this ship
God is a joke they say with a big shush tied upon his lip

Ahhh-ahh

Fall around in Pepsi cans. I’m all cutup. I’m a cutup.
I’m cuttin’ it up. I’m cuttin’ a rug. I’m cuttin’ the cheese. I’m cuttin’ the grass.
I’m cuttin’ a slug in half.
I’m waiting to see if it grows back.

And all the animals are wondering when they gonna get off this ship
God is a joke they say with a big shush tied upon his lip

Ahhh-ahh
I’m unhappy
Ahhh-ahh
And I’m hungry
Ahhh-ahh
And Ham likes my wife

And all the animals are wondering when they gonna get off this ship
God is a joke they say with a big shush tied upon his lip

Ahhh-ahh
Pop says the animals are lying
Track Name: Ariel Take It Away
La la la…

At the Hamburg Zoo
There in Arctic Cove
A living breathing mermaid
Swims alone

Forced to sing Adele
“Rolling in the Deep”
Cries to herself
When you sleep

Hiding just inside a cave
She waits until she gets the wave
Then Ariel takes it away
Ariel is not her name
But as Lisa she don’t get paid
So Ariel take it away
Ariel, sing one today.

La la la…

They wanna make her mate
With a manatee
She cannot relate
Manatees are ugly

They give her old fish scraps
It’s not what she eats
It’s like giving a man
Man meat

Hiding just inside a cave
She waits until she gets the wave
Then Ariel takes it away
Ariel is not her name
But as Lisa she don’t get paid
So Ariel take it away
Ariel, sing one today.

La la la…

Belting out Disney classics
On top of a rock
On Saturdays, it’s cabaret favorites
And 2 and 4 o’ clock

The zoo set up a cam
Come catch a sneak peak
Put on Instagram
Hashtag freak

She’s not an animal
Or is she?
That’s the subject of
Her documentary

Hiding just inside a cave
She waits until she gets the wave
Then Ariel takes it away
Ariel is not her name
But as Lisa she don’t get paid
So Ariel take it away
Ariel, sing one today.

La la la…
Track Name: Merry Christmas x8
We wish you a merry Christmas from all of us to all of you
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas, merry Christmas, Happy New Year

We went outside to do some shopping
Left the record on the record player playin’
We want a merry Christmas
But it’s Sammy Davis once again

Merry Christmas
When the needle drops, the music doesn’t stop
Merry Christmas
When the needle drops, Sammy Davis doesn’t stop

We don’t want to go to Las Vegas circa 1963
No casinos, no casinos, no casinos, (jackpot sound)

I’m writing to Jolly Old Saint Nick
I’m walking in a winter wonderland
We want a merry Christmas
But it’s Sammy Davis once again

Joy to the World!
When the needle drops, the music doesn’t stop
All the Boys & Girls!
When the needle drops, Sammy Davis doesn’t stop
When the needle drops, Sammy Davis doesn’t stop

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard silence
Sammy & his kids choir in my head
Wishing me seasons greetings in every way there is to say it

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it ho-ho-ho!
It’s the perfect time to build a snowman
We want a merry Christmas
But it’s Sammy Davis once again

Let’s all go caroling!
It’s a very merry distraction
We want a merry Christmas
But it’s Sammy Davis once again

Put up lights around the apartment
Buy a stocking stuffer for a friend
We want a merry Christmas
But it’s Sammy Davis once again

We three kings of orient are
God rest ye merry gentlemen
We want a merry Christmas
But it’s Sammy Davis once again
Track Name: In The Dark
After working all day, I needed to take off some stress
I put in my Craigslist ad that I want to go out
And you sent me a pic and a note and I was so pleased
You said a boy and girl have the very same mouth

We could be so happy. Come on everyone, let’s go down to the park
I don’t know. You just blow. And nobody will see us now in the dark

We just went straight down through the trees. Chit chat we skip.
In this circumstance, it did not matter who
And I could feel the weight of the world smothered on your lips
I got behind you telling me your problems too

We could be so happy. Come on everyone, let’s go down to the park
I don’t know. You just blow. And nobody will see us now in the dark

In the dark, you can blow all your cares away
Just remember that you’re not gay
Either way it’s ok!
I want you. Yes I want you to cum on me face
If you promise you don’t have Aids or any other disease. Nahhh!!

We could be so happy. Come on everyone, let’s go down to the park
I don’t know. You just blow. And nobody will see us now in the dark
Nobody will see us now in the dark
Nobody will see you go, no.
Nobody will see you blow, no.
Nobody will see us now in the dark
Track Name: A Frightening Vision of Hell
The sound
Instruments play themselves
Old town
Corrupted by elves
Sit down
Wish we were somewhere else
Than a boat inside the mouth of a whale

It’s a frightening vision of Hell
Everytime we touch an angel explodes
What a room of nightmares this is
I never will go home

Passion is hot
Batteries in a case
Maybe not
By the look on your face
I forgot
That there is no escape
On top of elephants on elephants

Imagine walking and wandering through all the wonders of the world at once
It’s glorious but overwhelming. It’s exhausting and neither of us had lunch

Bad choice
Sorry I got us lost
So moist
All things covered in moss
Old toys
With faces like Faust
Spinning on a carousel

It’s a frightening vision of Hell
Everytime we touch an angel explodes
What a room of nightmares this is
I never will go home

I dreamed
That I was alive
So sweet
That I cried and I cried
And I
Would like to go back sometime
But there’s no chance in

a frightening vision of Hell
Everytime we touch an angel explodes
What a room of nightmares this is
I never will go home

Two eagles fighting a bear
What are they doing there?
What a room of nightmares this is
I never will go home
Track Name: Honolulu
Awake and see the white ceiling
She’s still snoring. It’s another morning
I go downstairs. The dog has stained the carpet once again
I never wanted him. My daughter turned 10.

Step on an old Lego. That stupid son
I hate myself and I hate everyone
Honolulu would be much more fun. I’d

Surf on the waves of Waimanalo Beach
Sippin’ on a mai tai by the pool at the Aqua Skyline
Losing my mind

There is no doubt. The lawn looks shitty from the drought
Dear God, shut your mouth. I don’t know what you’re talking about
I don’t care. I can’t spend anymore time here in Kohls
I’ll be in the car thinking bout driving far.

Kids broke the garbage disposal. That’s more money
I hate myself and my whole family
Honolulu is the place for me. I’d

Surf on the waves of Waimanalo Beach
Fucking in every hole. Sharing straws on a Scorpion bowl
Life’s taken it’s toll

Bring on the fire
Bring on the fire
Bring on the fire
To light that way to Waikiki

Bring on the fire
Bring on the fire
Bring on the fire
To light the way to God
