The Lyrics

Yes, a medley of diff. parodies, the spoken part can go however you imagine it
Parody Medley

*fanfare music plays*
We got Gary Lewis and the Playboys
A very successful group
They are very good so, don't you be a poop
While people listen to Beatles
Screaming their heads off
Gary Lewis and the Playboys
Are singing till they cough
*music changes to This Diamond Ring*
Who wants to buy this diamond ring?
Gary Lewis and the Playboys now
They are not bunnies
Gary Lewis and the Playboys they
Sing till they cough for every girl and boy
And if they don't do any good for you
Then their careers are through

*fanfare comes back*
Now we've got the Lovin Spoonful
Another successful group
Every hit that they've had
Each counts as a scoop
No, theyre not utensils
They are just four guys
They are also a jug band
Just to our surprise

*music changes to "Summer in the City"*
Lovin Spoonful in city
They're four guys not food for scooping
Not things that you use for eating
Jug band, no they are not utensils
All' round . people don't use their heads
They think theyre the type of spoonful you are eatin'

*fanfare*
Now we've got Herman's Hermits
A British Invasion group
No they are not Hermits
They can see very well
They've got a new hit song
About someone named Mrs Brown
But when theyre not singing
They are having coffee grounds
*music changes to "Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter"
*
Herman's Hermits came here over water
They flew from the English Channel to here
Theyre not singing, theyre having coffee grounds
But when they start singing, theyre hot in town

*fanfare*
We've got another singer from Britain
She is so successful
Her name is Petula Clark
She has a hit called Downtown
That really hits the spark
She had that one hit, and that made her big mark

*"Downtown"*
When you're British
And you have a big hit
And you're a girl
Petula
British Invasion started with the Beatles
And she doesn't sing
Motown
Look at this big hit that she has just made
This song is so big on the hot hit parade
Her career lit the greenlight there
She can forget all her troubles
Not with her career
And go Downtown
She cannot record for
Motown
Berry Gordy's not waiting for you


*fanfare*
We got a new novelty hit
From a guy from a long time ago
Well he's not that old
But his nickname makes it so
His name is Napoleon XIV
He's got a one hit wonder hit

*"Theyre Coming TO Take Me Away Ha-Haa"*
Remember when I said
That there was hit from a guy
Whos really really old Wel,
I was just kidding, he's not that old really
He is a one hit wonder yeah
His single is selling away Ha-Haa!
His single is selling away ho ho, he he, ha ha
To the radio
Where hits are playing all the time
And ill be happy to see
What happens to his career
When its not a hit anymore
But his single is selling away ha-haa!




Now we've got Freddie and the Dreamers
A British novelty band
They have the craziest dance in the whole land
The lead singer wears big glasses
They do a jump jack dance
They call it the Freddie
Oh please give it a chance

*Im Telling You Now *

Im telling you now
Im telling you right away
Frreddie and the Dreamers
They sing away
Doing a crazy dance now
Its called the Freddie
Hope it does not make them sweaty
If they sweat then they will stop
But theyre dancing right now


Now we hope you just enjoyed
This really fantastic show
We will soon will have another one
Goodbye this was very fun
Now that's it for our shoooooooooooooooooooooow!
2004 Jack Wilson

Wow, most of the 60s incorporated in a single parody. Nice work

Very funny and original and clever, so 5's for funny and overall . . . your pacing just qualifies for "Lots", so 5 for pacing too, but the pacing could use a bit of work . . . still, good job, and very entertaining!

This is was inspired by The Four Preps' similar ( and somewhat funnier)song "More Money For you and Me"
