-> "Gentle Parodies"
Original Song Title:
"Gentle On My Mind" (MP3)
Parody Song Title:
I'm tired of taking well deserv-ed jabs at all those lousy politicians
And sounding like my sister is Ann Coulter and my brother is Glen Beck!
And 'though my work shows my feelings and my deeply held beliefs,
And I toss my jibes with lots of skill and ease,
I would rather be like my friends here on amiright and cool it,
And submit those funny gentle parodies.
John Barry rarely takes a shot at people 'cause he really doesn't have to -
He makes us laugh with all his witty takes and parodies about the beavers.
While the Turtle and the Fid-girl tackle Shakespeare brilliantly
And I holler out "Just keep it going please!".
I would rather cease my digs at lib'rals and their wild agenda
And create those funny gentle parodies.
'Though the cell phones and the trombones and the boogers give me lots of stuff to write on,
And my alter ego Elmer Fudd "pwovides fust wate matewial" for fun,
'Though I've documented my last year, retirement, writer's block,
My trombone gigs, and my badly creaking knees,
I still lack the gift of light touch and to be innocuous,
And produce more funny gentle parodies.
I have so many heroes here - it would take twelve more verses just to name them,
And from Airfarcewon on down they seldom get as strident as I'm apt to do.
B.J.M. is at my right side, Michael P.'s out on my left,
Politics are in my blood like some disease.
So I can't stop my ribbing of the things that I find foolish -
Wish that I could write those gentle parodies!
