The Lyrics

So...the other day my cohorts on TOTTM and I were discussing whether it's appropriate to laugh at someone when they make an ass of themselves. Perhaps, we decided, it is not appropriate when said person is your boss...but I want you all to know that if it's me...don't hold back...
I hope that if you ever see me blunder
You feel a chuckle coming on; don't stop with wonder
What if your joy should leave this elf disenchanted?
Please don't hold it in if on my ass I've landed

And if out in the hall, I slip on someone's lotion
I walk into a glass door thinking that it's open
Promise me that if you're witness to my gaffes
That when you get the choice to hold it in or laugh

I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh

And if you notice that I should eat with assistance
Because I spill too much for even stain resistance
If you find my clumsy stances leave your heart achin'
To tell a joke, just know that it's worth makin'

Don't think that all my falls have left me bitter
You think you'll take Thumper's advice? Reconsider!
Let your giggles spill out; Please don't stop on my behalf
'Cause when you get the choice to bite your tongue or laugh

I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh

(I'll take a spill when I'm in motion always
Laugh--you can't go wrong!
You know you wanna let out all your jeers; No wonder!
I'm a graceless swan)

I hope you laugh so hard that you start a commotion
When we go sailing and I fall into the ocean
If I ever get charged by a rhino calf
Then you would have the choice to call for help or laugh

Laugh!!!
I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh
I hope you laugh

(I'll take a spill when I'm in motion always
Laugh--you can't go wrong!
You know you wanna let out all your jeers; No wonder!
I'm a clumsy swan)
Oh...and just for those of you who didn't catch it..."Thumper's Advice" would be: If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. What a load of crap...; )

Excellent song. Hilarious...yet with a deeper meaning. But I have to ask, has this ever happened to you? "If I ever get charged by a rhino calf" (I have a hunter friend who's been to Africa who might relate)

Well done.
Arwen - December 13, 2004 - Report this comment
In reality, Jeff, I have to admit that no...I have never been charged by a rhino calf. But...if I ever were...and you were to witness said charging...

I hope you laugh...

And thanks to you, too, John!

I hereby vow, as your nearest and dearest AmIRight pal, that if you trip, slip, fall, spill, get charged, or go overboard, I will always give a hearty guffaw. Because I am THAT kind of friend.

And LOL on the "What a bunch of crap!"

I knew I could always count on you, Ash...thanks!

Good morning, Arwen (or whatever the time may be where you are; it's almost 8:30 where I am right now). I did indeed laugh when I read this parody; it matched the original very well. So I'm giving it a 5-5-5!

Have a nice day! ;)

I'm glad it made you laugh, Serafina! Thanks for stopping in!

I know a songwriter who got a lot of attention for a sad ditty about a kid who was sad because people laughed at him. So naturally I had to turn it around and wrote one about a kid who's biggest dream was to be a clown and was all bummed because no one would laugh at him. So I guess it can go either way.

Well honestly, for me, an embarrassing situation is more awkward if everyone is staring at me, but nobody is laughing. I'd rather have everyone laugh...and be done with it.

I won't let you down!

Come on, Boss, you gotta admit, that was some funny... Yes, sir. Cleaning out my desk already, sir. And yes, sir, it WAS worth it to laugh.

Oh, and nice one Arwen. By the by, your comment on JD's ttfn thread made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Anything I can do to return the favor, just lemme know.
Arwen - December 13, 2004 - Report this comment
Aww, 2nz! You know you've always been able to make me smile...I'm just glad that you saw the comment...I didn't want to have to poke you with a PM saying, "by the way, I'm singing your praises over there...get with it!"

I am now going to compose a list of things that you could do to make me feel warm and fuzzy...; )

Arwen - December 13, 2004 - Report this comment
I am laughing MY mouth off, Olaf!! I seriously think I am going to start to write parodies just to get a response from you...you KILL me!
Stuart McArthur - December 13, 2004 - Report this comment
yes, I L'ed OL at Olaf as well

of course, with your glowing perfectness Arwen, I always put the 5s in, THEN read the parody......but I LOVED some of the funny lines and twisted contrived-for-a-rhyme grammar here and I don't even know the OS, which would have made it even better....but lotion! rhino calf! LOL!!!

Oh Stuart...I love that I have you so perfectly trained that I could write complete rubbish and you'd still throw down the fives. =) Thanks!
Stuart McArthur - December 13, 2004 - Report this comment
and I am also happy with my progress in said training, princess - "play dead" still gives me problems but I know you're pleased with my responses to "roll over" and "down, boy"

Hello world? Stu and I are in a fight. Do not believe him when he tries to convince you that I'm pleased with his anything...
Stuart McArthur - December 14, 2004 - Report this comment
(sigh) all they have to do is visit the thread, see my "loveable" face and they'll believe anything...

Not if I tell them you're a fraud! (That really isn't even HIM! It's a loveable, hoodwinking pooch!!)
