The Lyrics

You ARE the father!! Original Song:
Today, my woman asked why I was not at home
Last night, yeah, baby! (Last night, yeah, baby!)
Told her my reason, “I had to take my friend home last night” (Alright!?)
She said she found some things that make my story wrong
“You lied!” “You’re crazy!” (“You lied!” “You’re crazy!”)
She made a phone call, “I know where we both belong, you lied!”

There’s no need to discuss
I act oblivious
There’s nothing left to do
We’ll find out the truth
See if they will call out my bluff

I took a test on Maury
Cause she’s calling me an unfaithful douche
I took a test on Maury
And we’re waiting for the moment of truth
I took a test, a test, no sweat, I’m set, on edge, but then I’ll rest
I took a test on Maury
And the lie detector will find the truth
Be right back with the truth

“We asked you, Scott, if you had kissed another bride…
You lied”, “Oh buddy” (“You lied!? Who’s Amy!?”)
“We then asked you if you have ever cheated, and you lied”
(“You lied!? You lied!?”)
“Use your real name, when you are out there chasing dames?
You lied”, “Oh buddy” (“Your name’s not Harvey!”)
“Babe, what the hell!? We are finished, we are done tonight!
(You lied! You lied!”)

Then he said, “Not so fast,
we took another test.
We’re gonna see if you
are the dad of two.
Better go out, get baby stuff!”

I took a test on Maury
It turns out I wasn’t telling the truth
I took a test on Maury
It turns out I’m now a father of two
Thanks to that test, the test, two eggs, attest!, damn test, now I have kids!
I took a test on Maury
And I guess we all just found out the truth
Be right back with more truth!

I didn’t tell the truth
I don’t know what to do
(Truth, truth, truth…)

I took a test on Maury,
Wife found out that I am a cheating fool
I took a test on Maury,
It turns out I wasn’t telling the truth
Been with her mom, her sis, her aunt, waitress, her friend, time and again
Thanks to that test on Maury,
Everyone knows I’m an unfaithful douche
I didn’t tell the truth (the truth, the truth, the truth…)

I’m just a cheating fool
(the truth, the truth, the truth…)
Not with one kid, but two
(the truth, the truth, the truth…)
Thanks to that test, I’m screwed
(the truth, the truth, the truth…)

Hey Abbott - I have conclusive evidence...that you wrote a good one here! ;D

Well done here. I've only recently heard this Lady Gaga song and you did a really great job with it. Even though I've never seen Maury or Jerry Springer or any of that junk I understood where you were coming from with this one.

Your parody is perfectly set up for a video. I can already visualize Emiloca smashing Luke Brattoni over the head with a chair with Agrimorfee the bouncer trying to break things up. Funny lyrics.

There's sure a lot of talk shows, 555 of them.

(SOTM) Talk shows really aren't the talk of the town to me, but this parody sue is! 555! :-)

The word "sue" should be "sure" d**n! I can't spell!

(SOTM) The results are in. Abbott Skelding, you... ARE A GREAT PARODIST! LOL! Awesome!

(SOTM) To tell the truth, I was expecting a twist where it turns out the tests were the ones not telling the truth, but that's just me. Never seen this show, but this was still a fantastic parody from a interesting perspective (as far as I know, on Maury the accused father/not-father isn't the one we're meant to be rooting for). 555!
