Son of W.A.Y. parody: They Will Elope

  • They Will Elope
    • Parody of "Strip Polka" by The Andrews Sisters
    • This song is about the plight of Alzheimer's and Dementia patients - if they are not locked inside their sections of their nursing homes like it's a fancy jail, the nursing staff are afraid that They Will Elope - they will leave and not find their way back. This "confinement" impacted me when I volunteered at a nursing home a few times. Since I had a scary time feeling "confined," I opted to go back to the "mainstream" section of the nursing home just upstairs, by asking a nurse to tap in a code to open the door and let me feel liberated at last.
    • A singing ensemble of senior citizens over 60 is highly recommended. If any of them are fans of / familiar with The Andrews Sisters, that would be a plus.
  • Music video ideas:
    • Music video could show a various assortment of Alzheimer's and Dementia patients doing what they do. 
    • If any footage shows them walking around, apparently by themselves, that would be a bonus.
  • Lyric ideas:
