The Lyrics

Since I mocked all the Beatle' songs several years ago, I thought I'd add them to the HUGE number that's already here. Maybe there's a few that haven't been done yet
Ahhh look at all of the commercials
Ahhh look at all of the commercials

Sellin' a product
Take an old song that you've loved
For a very long time
Alter the rhyme
Hire musicians
Make them play out
For the sponsor who's trying to sell
Don't mind the smell

All the advertisements Where do they all come from?
All the advertisements It's how they ruin a song

Sellin' a product
Whether it's shoes, telephones,
Nasal spray or a bra
Should be a law
Something familiar
Catches the ear and that's
Reason to butcher a tune
Your favorite soon

All the advertisers Why do they have the right?
All the advertisers To bait us day and night

Ahhh look at all of the commercials
Ahhh look at all of the commercials

Sellin' a product
Doesn't give ad men the right to go
Raping the past
The library's vast
Don't buy the product
Maybe they'll learn that the public
Won't stand for this long
Wrecking a song

All the advertisers Where do they all come from
All the advertisers Tell 'em
Where they all belong!!!

Not bad... too bad you didn't mention the whole "I believe in magic" thing, but I'll live ;-).

You sure are packing a whallop today! All these parodies have a message too, and I love this one. It's terrible when old time singers have to peddle their songs as a commercial on tv. Maybe there should be a time limit. Oh......great song!!! 5's
