The Lyrics

I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
Pee Wee Herman
Pee Wee Herman
Yes I am
And nobody else is Pee Wee like I am

Said I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
Pee Wee Herman
Pee Wee Herman
Yes I am
And nobody else can be me quite like I can

It ain't easy prancin' round in Florsheims
But somebody's gotta rock 'em
Spend time in a bowtie
Then you'll see why I don't knock 'em
It's so frivolous
Acting like I do
Always a rebel
Always so cool
Life's so zany
Call me small fry
Well, I know you are
But what am I

I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
Pee Wee Herman
Pee Wee Herman
Yes I am
And nobody else is Pee Wee like I am

Said I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
Pee Wee Herman
Pee Wee Herman
Yes I am
And nobody else can be me quite like I can

I need ice cream, pistachio
It's why I scream
I built this playhouse to wiggle in
Try to bring it down
I'ma get the last giggle in
No yakkity-yak
I speak in Sniglets
Don't play like a gamer with no quarters
I'm the whole platter of enchiladas

You're so funny I
Forgot to be laughin'
Borrow my new bike?
It ain't gonna happen
How far can you hock a loogie
Staring contest, yeah, let's boogie
Say it, don't spray it
That's not how I play it

I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
Pee Wee Herman
Pee Wee Herman
Yes I am
And nobody else is Pee Wee like I am

Said I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
I am (I am) Herman (Herman)
Pee Wee Herman
Pee Wee Herman
Yes I am
And nobody else can be me quite like I can

Porfle, it is indeed a pleasure waiting for your song parodies each day- tides me over until I can buy my Mad Magazine every two months now (and it's NOT cheap anymore)!!! Is that how you developed your S/N??? Sounds like you could have your own mag!!! I used to also collect Cracked (Sylvester P. Smythe) and Crazy (The Nebbish) as well as Sick (?)... but traded those collections in the '80s for Star Wars stuff!!! I miss those issues. I heard that Mad may either spin-off or become another magazine- Idiotica... WTF???

Thanks for the nice comments! Rob, you're right about MAD being a big influence while growing up (not to mention CRACKED and SICK). My S/N is also a nod to my favorite comics character, Herbie Popnecker.

Really dug this one. Never watched the Pee Wee Herman show but I really liked the movie directed by Tim Burton.
Porfle Popnecker - September 08, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks! Yeah, the first movie was great. The second one was pretty awful. I'm looking forward to seeing the DVD of the new Broadway show.

I just listened to the OS, which truly sucks, but this parody is hilarious!

Thanks, I'm glad you said it in that order!

I loved Pee Wee Herman in "Mystery Men" playing the role of The Spleen. Hilarious movie and a hilarious parody!
Porfle Popnecker - September 27, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, I need to see "Mystery Men"!

Dunno about this one Porfle, I think it needed even more Hermanness...some references to Miss vonne, Cowboy Curtis and Jombi the Genie might have made this even more hilarious. But I can see the man strutting in his Florsheims to this parofy as easily as he would do the same to "Tequila". Sniglets...jeez, you revealed your age to me! :
Porfle Popnecker - September 28, 2011 - Report this comment
Has it been that long since Sniglets? I just watched "The Pee Wee Herman Show on Broadway" so if I were to write this today, it probably would have even more Hermanness!

(Artistry) (Herman laugh) HA hahaha HA! funny stuff here. Amp up the Herman, and you got a great one here.
Rex - October 09, 2011 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Lots of good Pee Wee references, but yea, maybe varying the last line of each chorus to bring in a reference to another Playhouse character would make the awesomeness even more awesomnesser.

(Artistry) Haven't seen the show, so I was a little bit confused here, but that's my fault, not yours. Even so, this was a good laugh, pacing was spot on, really good job over all. 555!

Thanks for the comments! I'll definitely amp up the Herman next time.

I remember Peewee. . .the good and the bad. . .Mixed opinions. The idea was hilarious, the power woman song being turned into a PeeWee Herman tribute on its own is funny, but there were tough rhymes in the verses that were missed. All and all great idea, and good execution--but a little more time could have made this one huge. Unfortunately the same can't be said about the subject matter. . .sorry cheap jab, but he did set him self up for it.

Thanks, BAD. If you haven't seen Pee-Wee's recent Broadway comeback show, now out on DVD, it's worth a look.
