Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This will not be to everybody's taste...oh well...A song about a guy who can't understand why his girl doesn't show him affection anymore
Darling, why's your skin blue?
Can't keep those flies off of you
Loosen up..you're so stiff
And girl, you're starting to whiff
I'm thinking, are you on drugs?
And what's going on with the bugs?
I cook meals you don't chew
Can't keep those flies off of you

Pardon me if I am frank
I kiss you but draw a blank
I'm so concerned, it's bizarre
Buzzards wherever you are
Please eat the food on your plate
I think you've lost too much weight
Girl, if you'd only move
You'd keep those flies off of you

I love you baby
But you don't talk, as such
I love you baby
Although you're cold to touch
I love you baby
Please don't fall off that chair
Oh rigid baby
I'll try to come to terms
With why you're lazy
And covered all in worms
Oh don't give me the old cold shoulder, baby....

Darling, what's going on?
Who is this zombie called Ron?
Took you out t'other day
For some big graveyard soiree
I hope we won't have to part
I'm wondrin' where is your heart?
Is our romance taboo?
Can't keep those flies off of you

I love you baby
But you don't talk, as such
I love you baby
Although you're cold to touch
I love you baby
Please don't fall off that chair
Oh rigid baby
I'll try to come to terms
With why you're lazy
And covered all in worms
Oh don't give me the old cold shoulder, baby....

I'm having troubles getting the original tune into my foggy mind this morning...

Kristof - Eeeewwww!!! 5's...This reminds me of a track called "Zombie Jamboree" that I think the Kingston Trio (or some similar folk group of the era) did. It was one of my older brothers records and I would play it sometimes when he wasn't around. Man, that was a long, long, time ago. It was actually pretty funny. I remember how it went quite well. Yours is a lot grosser.

Thanks, Paul..I was in a kinda gross-out mood when I wrote this. I, however think it's quite tame compared to some of the shockers I've read recently (Alvin Rhodes, take a bow). Cheers anyway

555, great work, Kristof....but......yikes.....is today gross-out day on Amiright, or what? I posted two eating-themed parodies today.....one about eating cicadas.....and one about a nutcase who dines on himself.....and now THIS.....ewww.....startin' to feel like Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen: "Get 'em off me! Get 'em off me!"
