"Tragedy"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

It's a Reader's Digest version of the original.
In old, cold Denmark
He see
Spiritual homey
He got
Mental meltdown
He seek
Vengeful cuttings
He got mind fixed on mom-my
Oedipus got nothing
When compared to my liege

He wear no bright clothes
He got
Killer step dad
He be
Deep in mourning
He slay
Girlfriend’s poppa
He say
To be or not to be
He descends to madness
As we see in Act III
Won’t get better
No how.
Tragedy.

He love Opheelya
He got
Scheming in-laws
He go
Off to England
He have
Lucky ju ju
He lost
His girl, she drowned, you see.
Yorrick’s skull just listens
To his prince’s ramblings.
Nasty weather
Dark clouds.
Tragedy.

He unprotected
He get
Stabbed with poison
His mom
Drinks the wrong wine
Bad dad
Has comeuppance
He say
"I stab you back, Laertes"
Got to be the end since all these folks ceased to be.
Dead together
Ends our
Tragedy.

My fav of the day/week/?month.... insanely great idea with perfect word choices elegantly telegraphing key plot elements... truly a frickin' Yorrick-hat-trick, star-crossed parody, Warren!

Wow...your words are very kind! They encourage me to experiment a little more with cross pollinating pop culture with literature. Gracias!

The Beatles do the Bard, eh? Excellent stuff - you could always do "Let It Be":
When I find myself in times of trouble
I say this soliloquy
Speaking words of Hamlet
To-woo be (not to be)

:-)

I wanted to use 'soliloquy' in the song, but couldn't quite mix it in with the rest. A challenge, Mr. Alexander. A Beatles/Bard parody fest. Pick a play (after all, the play's the thing) and Beatle's tune and have at it. Any other takers?

Inspiring - I wish there were more trying this sort of thing, but the ranks of those who could pull it off appear to be thinning. AIR has of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all its mirth. But - What a piece of work is Warren. 555
