The Lyrics

I asked her "Blythe,
Who's that long-haired guy?
Shoulders look broad, yet light -
Ribs, don't look right...
Who's he? I sure don't know."
Blythe looked surprised,
Said "You don't know??"

Then Blythe just shook her head,
Looked at me, and said...

" Darlin' ......

That ain't no guy - that's Cher !
Long, beautiful Cher
Cheekbones gleamin'
Long legs lean and waxened
Known just about everywhere (Cher!)
Sings with so much power (Cher!)
Part-Cherokee Mama,
Tall-strong-big-booming-voiced-gal -

Cher! Cher!
Cher! Cher!
Cher! Cher!
Cher!
Act it!
Sing it!
Long as she can wing it - she's Cher!

She got her start singin' low
With some guy named Bono
"I Got You Babe" gave them fame as a pair
A voice so strong!
And hair so long!
Became by far
A superstar
She's a singer - an actor - the one and only -

Cher! Cher!
Cher! Cher!
Cher! Cher!
Cher!
Act it!
Sing it!
Long as she can wing it - she's Cher!

Cher's worn clothes
Long, straight, curly, fuzzy,
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty,
Oily, greasy, fleecy, shining,
Gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen,
Knotted, polka-dotted,
Twisted, beaded, braided,
Powdered, flowered and confettied,
Bangled, tangled, spangled and spaghettied !

So ma-ny good-bye's
By Cher - still fans cry
"Her career's too short !"

One more show,
She'll plateau -
Hope she'll know
To stop by herself !

They're all ga-ga at award-shows
When they see Cher in her wild clothes
The most outlandish clothes
On TV -
Typical Cher !
Some critics may deplore it
But her fans, they all adore it !
So many fans who love this woman - why don't more critics love her?

Cher! Cher!
Cher! Cher!
Cher! Cher!
Cher!
Act it!
Sing it!
Long as she can wing it - she's Cher!

This was funny! And you kept some original words and twisted them. Cher is a cartoon.

I 'share' in Rick D's sentiments. This rocks JD. Well done. Liked how you were able to get a lot of things in her life put into one parody.

Nothing against you, Johnny, but I can't stand the subject of your parodies. Cher is okay, until she is asked her opinion ::)
Johnny D - November 12, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you Rick, Guy, Wca, and Billy ! And Jonathan C. --- that's cool, but please look more closely at this parody ....... you will see that I both describe how Cher's fans feel about her, and I also allude to some embarrassing stuff that mocks her.

I neither fully praise nor fully insult her. I definitely make fun of her, that's obvious.

And as far as asking her opinion goes, Jonathan, take another look at my parody --- nowhere at all do I mention Cher's opinion on anything whatsoever.

Frankly I don't give a sh*t what her opinions are, anyway. She's just a ripe target for parody.

LOL! It was great.

If you could change that line, if you could fix that pace, you'd get rid of the words that have hurt you and... Aw, screw it, this was good!

Aaaaah! I was working on a parody of "Hair" called "Cher." I kid you not. What are the frickin' odds? At least I don't have to finish it now. You nailed it.

Thank you, Spaff ! I also did one called "Nair".
