The Lyrics

Ray Stevens is the funniest man who ever lived
There's no way to count all the laughs he gives
He'll never stop singing funny parodies
But there must be.. 50 ways to spoof Ray Stevens

Pop music would not be complete without ol' Ray
His songs made so many people's blues just go away
But there's an old saying that turnabout is fair play
There must be.. 50 ways to spoof Ray Stevens
50 ways to spoof Ray Stevens

Just alter Gitarzan, Sam
Butcher Ahab the Arab
Sing Along Came Bones, freak
Just mess with the Streak...

Just attack with your pen, Ben,
The Shriner's Convention!
Just tamper with Misty, Lee!
Sing "Everything is Ugly."

It will not grieve us here... to see him laugh in pain
When he finds out he's not the only one insane
But you really do not need to overwork your brain
There must be 50 ways to spoof Ray Stevens

Weird Al and Ray thought we wouldn't fight their clout
But now we're gonna make them scream and cry and pout
We'll take all the songs they did and turn them inside out
There must be... 50 ways to spoof Ray Stevens
50 ways to spoof Ray Stevens

Just alter Gitarzan, Sam
Butcher Ahab the Arab
Sing Along Came Bones, freak
Just mess with the Streak...

Just attack with your pen, Ben,
The Shriner's Convention!
Just tamper with Misty, Lee!
Sing Everything is Ugly.

Just alter Gitarzan, Sam
Butcher Ahab the Arab
Sing Along Came Bones, freak
Just mess with the Streak...

Just attack with your pen, Ben,
The Shriner's Convention!
Just tamper with Misty, Lee!
Sing Everything is Ugly.
2003 Michael W. McVey

Great Job, but also remember Jerimiah Peabody's Fast Acting Green and Purple Pills and the fact that Ray is a classically trained pianist.

What a bomb! You better get down to funny business, Mr. Businessman!

Please tell me that you know the real original was Paul Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"

Yes. So, when Ray Stevens spoofed that song, I thought of 50 ways I could spoof him back. The key line here is, "But there's an old saying that turnabout is fair play." And lest there be any doubt, I like Ray Stevens.

Are you referring to this parody or the Cannonball Run theme?

Ray, gives us laughs when we need it most inlife. He is a great writer,pianoist and a great singer. Hope he doesn't fully retire for a long time. Yes he is crazy, but we all love him.
