Beatles

Parody Song Title:

"He Wears Sarongs"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

He wears sarongs, yeah, yeah, yeah,
He wears sarongs, yeah, yeah, yeah,
He wears sarongs, yeah--they're longer than tutus.

Every night, he dons threads that have been spun
For clothes with female association.

He wears sarongs, yeah, yeah, yeah,
He wears sarongs, yeah, yeah, yeah,
He wears sarongs, yeah--they're longer than tutus.

He likes weft weaves and herringbone.
They're so comfy, like comfrey* and scones.
He looks good when he wears a hood
That covers his covert chrome dome.

Every night, he will sit and scrutinize
This skirt. Does it rise too high up thighs?

It shows his thong, yeah, yeah, yeah,
It shows his thong, yeah, yeah, yeah,
It shows his thong that's powder blue.

Every day, he wears suits just for show
But at night, he just can't wait to sew.

He wears sarongs, yeah, yeah, yeah,
He wears sarongs, yeah, yeah, yeah,
He wears sarongs, yeah--they're longer than tutus.
Woo.


*Supposedly soothing herb, sometimes used to make tea.

This is one of the Fabs songs I had the hardest time with. I'm willing to bet you and I are the only ones here with a version.

Thanks, Alvin, Rick--you are right. And it looks like no one's posted a parody of "All I've Got to Do," which I've just finished.

Nice. I'm guessing that if you ever wear a sarong, it won't be long.
