Song Parody Fragments:

"Hopelessly Devoted"
Better Lyrics:
but now there's nowhere to hide
since the counter got to five
I'm out of my head
i wish that i was dead
because its the first time
that i could not find somewhere to hide
it is the first time that i couldn't find somewhere to hide
Original Lyrics:
but now there's nowhere to hide
since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head
hopelessly devoted to you
hopelessly devoted to you

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Please Mr. Please"
The Dated Lyrics:
In the corner of the bar there stands a jukebox
With the best of country music, old and new.
You can hear your five selections for a quarter,
And somebody else's songs when yours are through.
Why They're Dated:
Maybe in the 1970s when this song came out, one could still hear five selections for a quarter on a jukebox, although a friend of mine who was already grownup in that decade says that would be surprising and that he remembers five selections on a jukebox for a quarter more dating back to the late 1950s to early 1960s. In any event, the last time I remember paying any close attention to any jukebox was around the turn of the millennium (late 1990s to early 2000s), and the jukebox I saw then played no more than one song for a quarter. So these lyrics are certainly dated now, whether they already were in the 1970s or not.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"I Honestly Love You"
The Dirty Lyrics:
But there you are with yours
And here I am with mine
Why They're Dirty:
I don't think this line is dirty. I think all she is saying that that they can't be together because they are each with their respective partners. (Although, that never stopped anybody before.)
Submitted by: Robert Ballinger
"I Honestly Love You"
The Dirty Lyrics:
If we both were born in another place and time this moment might be ending with a kiss. But there you are with yours and here I am with mine so I guess we'll just be leaving it at this.
Why They're Dirty:
This has to be a reference to masturbation and forbidden love.
Submitted by: Dee Gee
There are additional dirty lyrics available.

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Please Mr. Please"
The Lyrics:
I got good Kentucky whiskey on the counter,
And my friends around to help me ease the pain.
Why:
Refers to the U.S. state of Kentucky, the best known and most prominent U.S. location for whiskey making (the legal kind, at least, although Kentucky has at times been infamous for illegal whiskey as well). Most legal whiskey made in Kentucky is the kind known as Bourbon, which by definition gets most of its fermentable raw material form corn as opposed to other grains. More specifically, the grain from which Bourbon is made is required by law to be between 51% and 79% corn. Some other name must be used for any legal whiskey from a grain mix outside that range. Still other regulations apply before a whiskey can legally be called Bourbon. Some laws seem to have changed, but at least at one time a whiskey could legally be called bourbon ONLY if made in Kentucky (in addition to other requirements).
Submitted by: Penelope Beckinsale
"Please Mr. Please"
The Lyrics:
I could swear I'd be the richest girl in Nashville,
Maybe even in the state of Tennessee.
Why:
Refers to the U.S. state of Tennessee, and its capital city, Nashville. That city has long been known as the "country music capital" of the country, and its country music connection is what figures prominently in this song.
