I Got Dibs

A brand new songĀ about throwing your trash in the street to get dibs

Some nice, high-quality trash, strewn about in the Chicago streets to gain dibs on a parking spot in the winter.

Well, well. Here we are in the depths of Winter, no?

Here we are, Chicago, just freezing our butts off and we gotta get inside so quick.

This song that I wrote is pretty obvious. We all know about the time-honored tradition of throwing your unused chairs and other furniture out into the street to save your precious parking spot. We all know someone who takes dibs regularly. And we all know someone who regularly talks about how they’re the downfall of modern, industrial society.

So it’s a song about dibs. And here are some for you to look at while you listen to the tune:

Chicago dibsmore Chicago dibsAnd even more Chicago dibsdibs again...beautiful dibs

I based this tune on an old hymnal. Check out the original version. It’s similar:
