Gangster of Yarn

See what happens when I have a day off and full access to a pot of coffee?

I thought I’d share this masterpiece with you. Just don’t ever ask me to sing it. It’s based on The Joker by The Steve Miller Band. Hopefully you’re familiar with the tune. If not, google it and you’ll find it.

<ahem>
Some people call me the Stashaholic, yeah
Some call me the Gangster of Yarn
Some people call me Sherri
‘Cause I speak of the gathering of Stash

People talk about me, baby
Say I’m doin’ you wrong, doin’ you wrong
Well, don’t you worry baby, don’t worry
‘Cause I’m right here, right here, right here, tangled in yarn

‘Cause I’m a knitter, I’m a quilter
I’m a crocheter and I’m a sewer
I do my crocheting in the sun
I’m a joker, I’m a hooker
I’m a pattern looker
I do my stashin’ on the run

‘Cause I’m a knitter, I’m a quilter
I’m a crocheter and I’m a sewer
I do my crocheting in the sun
I’m a joker, I’m a hooker
I’m a pattern looker
I do my stashin’ on the run

Wooo Wooooo

You’re the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your yarn, wannna sheer your sheep
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey with all the yarn
Ooo-eee baby, I’ll sure keep you in stitches

‘Cause I’m a knitter, I’m a quilter
I’m a crocheter and I’m a sewer
I do my crocheting in the sun
I’m a joker, I’m a hooker
I’m a pattern looker
I do my stashin’ on the run

‘Cause I’m a knitter, I’m a quilter
I’m a crocheter and I’m a sewer
I do my crocheting in the sun
I’m a joker, I’m a hooker
I’m a pattern looker
I do my stashin’ on the run

Wooo Woooo

People keep talking about me, baby
They say I’m doin’ you wrong, doin you wrong
Well don’t you worry, don’t worry, no don’t worry mama
‘Cause I’m right here tangled in yarn

You’re the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your yarn, wannna pet your sheep
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey with all the yarn
Ooo-eee baby, I’ll sure show you good stash

See why I never auditioned to the Idol shows? I’m going back to my hooks now. Singing career over. Be grateful.

ROFLMAO

  1. I just love it Sherri! Can’t wait to hear you sing it at the next Hookups or knitter’s guild meeting! Hey, maybe I’ll join you! (Seriously joking!)
