"Everybody Loves Somebody"

 (MP3)
Original Performer:

Dean Martin

Parody Song Title:

"Everybody Loves Zambonis"

Parody Written by:

Fiddlegirl and Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

Inspired by Phil Nelson's "Zamboni Racer", which inspired TT's offflipper remark there. (That's "offhand" to a turtle.)

Dean-o is at his best in this excellent OS video.

Everybody loves Zambonis sometime
Everybody tires of big snowplows
(Lumb’ring in the dis- -tance; smoky
And frumpy, like cows)

Smoothing all the lines carved by the ice skates
Make compelling: smooth as glass appears
Something of an art, conveying-
“A master is here”

If they’d rent them by the hour
I’d arrange to have a whirl; divine, its charms!
With every spin, in- -crease the power
While spectators there just looked on in alarm

Old Man Ribber loves "trombonies"; no crime
And a snowmobile is fun for two
But, to make the ice worth skating?
Zamboni's for you

Not a winter-blooming flower
Or pasta shape that you would twirl in spicy sauce
Nor "Don Zamboni" (Maf'ia power)
The Zamboni: Ice arena? Simply, "Boss"

Everybody loves Zambonis: ice, prime
Cutting to commercials (just a "few" ;)
That love- -ly fresh rink: worth feting
Zamboni ... and crew

[Everybody loves Zambonis: sub-lime!]

Luckily youz guyz are *so cool*, 'cause when you combine Dean Martin with frozen ice you've gotta contend with the following inconvenient truths:

80 proof vodka'll freeze at approximately -26.95 °C (or -16.51 °F) and100 proof vodka will freeze at -40.43 °C (or -40.78 °F)... but for Deano, *pure* ethanol, freezes at a whopping' −114.3 °C--extra parka Ohno?.

Seriously slick fast trackin' yer way to fives... and I'm not just throwin' you tewe a, er, 'bone-y' here....

Thanks for the link and mention! I only know the original from the old commercials, so only know part of it, but could still follow. Another hilarious zamboni parody! 5's

Smooth sailing there, folks! I would never miss this Fiddle-turtle satire! Great subject for winter, since we're knee-deep in snow from where I live. TT, I think that you're able to ride a Zamboni, since you have a license somewhere. Heck, you can even hold Zamboni rides, like hay rides! I can picture you riding one, with Fiddlegirl. Smoothing 555 scrape lines on the rink with the Zamboni.

Everybody loves a good Zamboni parody sometimes, and look at that, we have 2 already! Who's going to do "My Zamboni" to "My Sharona??? LOL

OMR: Thanks... we are *nothing* if not smooth! ;)

Ice, Ice (T)JC: "Cool" little known facts, Chilly Willy! (Although the zamboni is probably no place for chilly willies...) ;)

"Chill" Phil Nelson: Thanks!

CMM: "I told you kids never to play Zamboni in the house!" ;) I'm sure the ride would be a blast; however, I suspect that TT is a much more conservative driver than I am, and would probably be hiding in his shell most of the time... :)

Mark Scotti: I think *you* are just the smooth operator for that one! :)

Fiddlegirl: "TT a more conservative driver"? Where did *that* come from -- after the talk of speed-skiing (and racing go-karts, riding m-cycles, and, uh, some other stuff you know about)? Just askin.... ;)

Did anybody happen to see a program by Huell Howser that showed the first Zamboni and the man who invented it? Anyway, you may already have seen my Zamboni parody to "Lemon Tree" by Peter, Paul and Mary.

lots of laughs - liked the zamboni rhymes, especially trombonies

Old Man Ribber: Thanks for slick comment! ;)

TJiCe: So, Dean Martin needs Goblet Cooling? (pretty bad stretch -- Double Cooling?) .. and, uh, that last part is TT's job, thank you. (j/k!!!!!!!) lol - thanks for v/c.

Phil Nelson: You're quite welcome -- thanks for the inspiration!

Christie Marie M: Never driven one, but I've driven trains and boats and planes (Dionne Warwick, and full-size trains, not models), motorcycles, go-karts, horses, etc. -- so could probably do it. Like that Idea of giving rides, or riding tandem with FG. (or riding *any* way with FG, wink) Thanks for v/c!

Mark Scotti: You, it looks like! Looking forward to your completing the recent trilogy, and thanks for v/c!

Shirley: You left out the part about having driven on the high-banked oval at Daytona, though not in an actual race.

2Eagle: Missed both, sorry, but thanks for v/c.

Timmy1000: Thanks -- and we owe OMR for setting up the "trombonies" sub with his parody.
