Original Song Title:

"Hey There Delilah"

Original Performer:

Plain White T's

Parody Song Title:

"Re: Your Song About My Client Delilah"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

True story: Tom Higgenson of Plain White T's wrote his song about a real Delilah. The relationship, however, never happened. She wasn't interested. It seems to me, therefore, that a response is needed.

Dear Mr. Higgenson: It's me, Delilah's lawyer
I am writing to inform you there's
A third restraining order
In effect
The first two haven't stopped you yet
She's quite upset

May I remind you, Tom, my client doesn't like you
Yet you keep composing songs for her
Which means you have the IQ
Of a brick
You couldn't "hit that" with a stick
Please seek help quick

Oh, we're watching you, you creep
Oh, we're watching you, you creep
Oh, we're watching you, you freak
Oh, it's what we do all week
All the stupid week

Do not address Delilah's mother as a MILF and
Please desist from mailing puppy dogs
And photos of yourself in
Plain white T's
And next time put some pants on, please
Nice cottage cheese

My client's gone in hiding halfway 'cross the nation
But you evidently stalked her to
Her undisclosed location
In New York
You put it in your song, you dork
We're freaking torqued

Oh, were watching you, you creep
Oh, we watch you when you sleep
Oh, we watch you when you eat
Oh, we watched you take a leak

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But you've used planes and trains and cars
And pogo sticks and Segways and a horse
But we've got warrants out for you
So, Romeo, if you try to
Go near her, you'll regret the choice, of course
There's lots of guys who'd gladly pay
To make your love song go away
They'll quickly take you down without remorse
With deadly force

Dear Mr. Higgenson: This isn't 'cause I'm jealous
That I left the band for law school while
You got rich with the fellas
With your song
Here's why I took this client on:
Like you, I've wanted her so long
So it's so nice to sue you, Tom
P.S. How's Mom?

I didn't think you could beat "Hey There Al-Qaida", but I was wrong. This has to be one of the best Spaff songs out there and that says a lot. I would LOVE to hear this one recorded. "You couldn't "hit that" with a stick" actually made me stop reading and burst out laughing.

funny twist on the OS
Agrimorfee - July 27, 2007 - Report this comment
Not only funny, but a quite different style from the usual Spaff works. It is also very difficult to stray from original verse rhyme schemes. Great as always. 555

Super funny stuff. Even better than your first one the other day. As I said the other day, Spaff is king! Big 5's.
Red Ant - July 27, 2007 - Report this comment
Funny work as always, Spaff. LOts of LOL lines, but "pogo sticks and Segways and a horse" stood out for me. I, too, would love to hear this recorded.

Terrific, As my son is a lawyer, I almostI like it more the the original, almost. I would love to hear it recorded.

That "couldnt "hit that" with a stick" part is funny. This would be so funny if it was recorded. - July 31, 2007 - Report this comment
Thank you very much, Matthias & Jackie & Arwen & alvin & Aggro & JP & Red & Paul & Kyle! I just received Robert Lund's recording of this - now I just have to figure out what to do with it.

Nicely done. Heard the recording last week on The Barry Hansen show. The whole thing was good, but in particular, it was just plain funny hearing the words "you dork" casually slipped into a soft ballad like this. AND you steered clear of profanity this time. Here's to winning your $555 lawsuit.

Love the recording,better than the OS, why wanst that #1?

Jonathan: Thanks. I don't steer clear of profanity, however; I just don't use it in every case.

Jackie: Heh heh. Maybe it'll get there on Dr. Demento. (Hint hint.)

Somebody: Thanks. I prefer abnormal.

hello people: Something tells me you're not referring to videos of this parody, but in case you are, here are two of them I've found:
Claude Prez - September 05, 2007 - Report this comment
Wow, those youtube videos are great. Also, the ones for "99 Words for Boobs": **************************************** **************************************** *************************************** I always thought some sort of extreme sports/ jackass video for "Band-Aid" would be cool. Oh, yeah, the song. Outstanding as always, but the pogo stick line is beyond hilarious. Anyone who does a video of this and doesn't include an actual person bouncing on an actual pogo stick has no business calling himself a half-assed amateur filmmaker wannabe. Okay, I think I'm done now. Happy 2003. Claude out.

I finally have an idea for this! "Hey Paris, Britney and Lindsau" - October 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Jackie: Done it yet?

Claude: Been away awhile, eh? You go < then *capital* BR then >. Thanx, man. And here's yet another one - this time there's a shot of a kid on a pogo stick, but no attribution. (Can't win 'em all.)

Sorry, JARLB. I didn't mean for you to smell that.

Better than the OS. A long title, but I love this track anyway. Robert Lund's performance does the lyrics justice. - December 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Thanks, Kevin, but the title is even longer than you think. It's "Re: Your Song About My Client Delilah," not just "Your Song About My Client Delilah." Not sure how to fix that.

I'm so glad I read this parody. This is terrific, and the pacing is dead on... You've really outdone yourself here, Spaff... This is definitely one of the greatest parodies you've made. And it looks like a lot of others love it as well.

Your comments are nearly as hilarious as your parodies. Great job, all hail Sir Sumsion [That is your last name, correct?]
