VH1 previews Billie's take on classic anthem

They say that what goes around comes around. It's may be an old rock cliche, but today's appearance by World Legend Billie Jean King added the necessary grain of truth. Not that a grain is enough for Billie's appetite (STOP RIGHT NOW -Ed.)

Billie has produced, in collaboration with Elton John, her own version of the classic John Lennon hit, Imagine. Written on 30th April, King's execution of her unique, haunting vocal range guarantees that this track will feature on her forthcoming album, Life in the Fat Lane. Perhaps as a closer.

Take it away Billie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Imagine there's no Fed Cup,
It's easy if you try,
No trophies I can hold up,
No rookies to make cry,
Imagine all the team-mates
Sending on their way...

Imagine there's no Jennie,
It isn’t hard to do,
There’ll be no star for the people,
But we all know I will do
Imagine all the fans
Cheated once again...

Imagine no more medals,
I wonder if you can,
No need for Meg and Alex,
A bench of losers, man,
Imagine me and the Williams
Gracing the podium

You may say I’m a flab-cake,
Who sucks the burger out the bun,
I fear some day you'll fire me,
And the team will be as one.

What a GREAT cover...Billie Jean really knows how to spread herself around the world-but wait, I think that happens naturally...

Anyway, Billie is super hot today and I cannot believe how she keeps teasing us with these monster hits!

With apologies

Imagine winning the Fed Cup,
It's easy if you try,
Two big medals to hold up,
No losses to make me cry,
Imagine all the passed-over team-mates
Staying at home on the day...

Imagine there's no Jennie,
It isn’t hard to do,
Missed my training session,
She knew what I would do
Imagine all the Williams fans
Cheering once again...

Imagine two more olympic medals,
Thats my long term plan,
No need for Monica, Lindsay, or Lisa ,
Whats this "team spirit", man?
Imagine me and team Williams,
Winning 6-1 6-1,

You may say I’m an opportunist,
Who wants to win at all cost,
I fear some day Venus will retire,
And the team will be down to one.

I have one, it's a cover of the Lesley Gore hit "It's My Party". I hope BJK will use it on her album because I really, really, really want to be associated with her umm... successes. Even though it's not very funny. And she hates me :sad:

"It's My Fed Cup Team"

It's my Fed Cup team and I'll do what I want to
Do what I want to, do what I want to
You would do too if the captain was you

Nobody knows where my Jenn has gone
But Stefano left the same time
Why was he watching her practice
When she's supposed to be mine

It's my Fed Cup team and I'll do what I want to
Do what I want to, do what I want to
You would do too if the person who invented tennis was you

Then all the press used to hound me all night
But they’ve been leaving me alone for a while, so
“'Til Jenn’s playing for me
I've got no reason to smile”

It's my Fed Cup team and I'll do what I want to
Do what I want to, do what I want to
You would do too if the living legend was you

Half the team just walked thru the door
Don’t they realise I’m the king
Oh what an incredible surprise
When I won’t let them play a thing

It's my Fed Cup team and I'll do what I want to
Do what I want to, do what I want to
You would do too… oh no, you probably wouldn’t

Oh-oh-oh. It's my Fed Cup team and I'll do what I want to
Do what I want to, do what I want to… ahahahaa!!!

Lisa...nice to see you here. Didn't you once play for me? I seem to remember the name...

And as for you folks fighting over the lyrics to 'Imagine', they both are very good. But, as with everything, the original is always best, so I'm sticking with those. But may I use the others if I get to perform a full 16 minute version on stage? I hope so.

These days I'm just releasing so much stuff, and I'm also putting out records!

Phew, Billie, I feel faint at the thought of what you've been releasing. The way you demolished those jars of pickled gherkin followed by that KING-size bucket of double cream choc-whip last night.


Reminds me of a great song for your next album - "Something in the Air Tonight".

Fancy lunch in a bit? Or have you just had your breakfast and your elevenses? ;)

Lunch? Ooh, there's an idea. I want to know why there is only 'elevenses'? What happened to 'tensies', 'twelvesies', 'twosies', 'threesies' and so on? In fact, why is there not half-past-ies? I can get very hungry in between hours.
