The Lyrics

Each time after "die," the silence gets longer, then "laughing" gets more sudden and more emphatic. The last time, I get out a harmonica and play Taps in between! Unlike the original, there are two key changes: the second is the same as the original, but the first comes after "and He don't mind." When I go public, I plan to make this my ending song.
I've been there forever,
and I altered the very first song.
I gave funny words to the great melodies,
I am humor, and I spoof the songs.

I spoof the songs that make the whole world laugh
I spoof the songs that cause a riff-raff.
I spoof the songs that make the young girls die..........laughing!
I spoof the songs, I spoof the songs.

My home is not another planet.
In fact, I'm right here in your soul.
Now, when I light up your eyes,
I'll make you giggle, whether you're young or old.

I spoof the songs that make the whole world laugh
I spoof the songs that cause a riff-raff.
I spoof the songs that make the young girls die..........laughing!
I spoof the songs, I spoof the songs.

Oh, my songs make you laugh til you're sore
they give you spirits a chance to soar,
and I make fun of everyone so you can't say I'm unfair.
Laughter fills your heart,
well, that's a real good place to start.
I make fun of you, fun of me, fun of politicians, even the Deity -- And He don't miiiiiind!!!! [segue to first key change]

I spoof the songs that make the whole world laugh
I spoof the songs that cause a riff-raff.
I spoof the songs that make the young girls die.......(long silence, except for a bit of sobbing, then,).....LAUGHING!!!
I spoof the songs, I spoof the songs.

[higher key]
I spoof the songs that make the whole world laugh
I spoof the songs that cause a riff-raff.
I spoof the songs that make the young girls die.......(play Taps on harmonica, then, very dramatically,)........LAUGHING!!!
I spoof the songs, I spoof the songs,
I am humor, and I spoof the sonnnnnnnnngs!!!
