Parody Song Title:

"No Regret-o (....Priscilla honey)"

Parody Written by:

Stuart McArthur

The Lyrics

Quoting Elvis from his 1973 concert: "Here's a little song uh'wrote 'bout me and Priscilla, and how sometimes......well...things just aint s'posed t'be uh'guess - thangyouverymuch....." (listen to an mp3 of the OS here)

After sun - rise...

on a cold and rainy Memphis mornin'
I finished my shower'n stepped on the floor
it got wetto
(it got wetto)

And Priscilla sighed...

coz if THERE'S one thing that she don't need
it's a slippery floor in the ensuite - she
got upsetto
(got upsetto)

"Woman don't you understand
I will mop the pudd-le and
the floor'll be dry - just like it was yester-day"

then I muttered nerv-ously
"I've mopped it DRY!....drop-free!
and you can simply
step on it
no need for dismay"

Well she did...so...

but-the-instant-that-her-foot
touched that mopped up floor
it slipped on a few little drops, or more
of my sweat-o
(of my sweat-o)

and so then I lied...

"you SLIPPED coz you're a clumsy dill!"
yes I lied without guilt
like that wood-puppet built
by Geppetto
(by Geppetto)

THEN she turned, with irritation, and walked out of my life
we got divorced
she sued me dry
I felt remorse
so spent my time...

...in Kentucky Fried

coz-I felt like that dude who yelled at his dame
in that movie, ooh, what the hell was his name?
oh yes, Rhett-o
(oh yes, Rhett-o)

and then to my surprise...

on a cold and rainy Memphis mornin'
an answer to my loneliness took form

got a pet-o
(got a pet-o)

...oh, and a triple-fried
quadruple cheese, banana and bacon baguetto
(baguetto)


thankyou, thangyouverymuch

*shakes head in utter disbelief*.....Another wonderfully silly addition to your already enormous compendium of wonderful silliness. "Rhett-o"? "Baguetto"?? hehehehehe. 555

As the snow flies... on a cold and windy Jersey morn, I read this and laughter soon was born, here's your cinco. And Pacholek laughs... 'Cause if there's one thing that he sure needs, it's a funny Elvis parody, here's your cinco.

Stu - as someone who's likely to read this before end of play today, please may I pass this on through you: I can't access the inthe00s, and haven't been able to for two/three days - I have a set of votes for SOTM, but can't submit them.
PS Love the parody :-)

Better than the original song.
Red Ant - January 31, 2007 - Report this comment
LOL on all the "ghetto" subs - IMHO, they really make this parody. Wasn't familiar with the original, so thanks for providing the link. 555

Phil, in the case that Stu doesn't get a chance to reply before midnight, you can email me at redant50@hotmail.com, or post you choices here and I'll post them on the messageboard. If you tell me the problems you are having I may be able to help.

thanks Kristof - but silly???!.....obviously you weren't at that concert, mate - there wasn't a dry eye in the house

thanks Jack - in fact by a huge coincidence, I just re-watched KF Movie yesterday, not that it has anything to do with this parody

thangyouverymuch Matthias :-)

thanks JAB alvin and yoidy (tried, but couldn't get stilettos in;-))

excellent MP - that's half a parody already - thanks mate

that's a lovely compliment Ann - I appreciate it

thanks Merry and AFW

thanks Phil, and sorry I arrived here too late to help (we Aussies are always the last here) - but Jack never lets anybody down, does he?

thanks 2Eagle, although I do like the OS

thanks Jack - it was the idea of a chain of ridiculous "...etto" subs that I started with here - the Priscilla/petty-squabble theme came after I'd written my first version, so I had to go back and rewrite the whole thing

Nice parody. 555. Can you believe that this year marks the 30th anniversary of his death. I can still remember when I first heard it on the TV news. Man, I feel old. I'd better go buy stock in prunes and Geritol. At least the Hoveround looks like fun.lol
Stuart McArthur - February 01, 2007 - Report this comment
I didn't watch it in full Jack - just scrolled through my recording of it for nostalgia's sake - the Bruce Lee bit stretches on a bit - so I don't know all the quotes - but it certainly took me back 20 years

thanks Michael - I recall the moment and the place well - scary that he died younger than me :-< (and of course it was all Priscilla's fault)

(ABC4N) Stu - How did I miss this? Brilliant! Loved all the subs and refs. The Kentucky Fried was priceless. The only ref I didn't get was "Rhett-o". Oh well - it is still good.

(ABCN4) My above comment really still sums me up, the only thing I can say, is your work since this one is far more impressive than just me saying I'm a 'fan', but this one was still very clever, especially the turning words into ___o. . .you might be able to do well on "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See". . .

(ABC4) I'm surprised the divorce attorney bought that. Nice write, Stu, even if the 'Rhett-o' gag went over my head.

(ABC4N) I saw this one before this comp and thought it was just hilarious. I still do. I love the way you rhymed ghetto with *ett-o subs...and provided great images and a story.
For those who didn't get the "Rhett-o" gag...google "Margaret Mitchell"

(ABC4L) I've just realised that I often refer to your parodies as "silly", Stu....I mean it as the highest compliment (obviously) but I'm going to have to find a better adjective. You know I love this.....

Man.... Priscilla must be one hard-assed woman to please, but Elvis was the King. I mean there were a bunch of hot 50's-styled chicks crawling on stage to get a peice of that... I'm sure he didn't have to worry about such a strict wife, when he could have a bunch of hot 50's-styled chicks to pick from.

Sometimes I forget that Priscilla was Elvis' wife, and not just Leslie Nielson's crush in the Naked Gun movie series.

SOTY- Great little rhyming scheme for 'ghetto'. Very well done, Stu.
