The Lyrics

OK... how may people are completely honest when completing a résumé? (Apart from me, that is ;-) )
Résumé, gotta say a little lie-o
A fib or three on my CV, on my bio
I should stop making up when I apply-o
But, oh what fun saying things I've done on my bio

Chorus:
Jumbo liar! Pants on fire! Ain't it fun, though?
'Cause last year said I appeared on TV-o
Been a blond, played James Bond, yes, a spy-o
It's fun, all right, when I'm a-writ-ing my bio

This can't fail: went to Yale for my degree-o
Doris Day, JFK all worked for me-oh
Understand I own land in Ohio
So you ask why the hell do I need a bio?

Chorus

Expliquez, je sais c'est ce que j'ai pensé
Café au lait, regardez: je sais parler Francais
Foreign tongues, smart and young - that's me oh my oh
And there'll be more lies galore on the bio

Chorus

Made my coat from a goat - a merino
Looked a sight, hair was white - an albino
Had to go to Middlesbro' - see Juninho
Is it true? I don't care - do you? It's my bio!

Final chorus:
Jumbo liar! Pants on fire! Ain't it fun, though?
Makin' up all kinds of stuff for my CV-oh
Referees if you please, I can buy, oh
Son of a bitch, I'm gettin' rich from the bio
Son of a bitch, I'm gettin' rich from the bio
Son of a bitch, I'm gettin' rich from the bio

60s? I thought Hank Williams was dead by then. Shouldn't it be "misc"? Nice parody, though.

DKTOS but I had to check it out because of the subject, seems you're once again two steps ahead of me. :-/
I'm trusting the others on pacing so here's another 555 to the (not so) miniscule honest section of that bio.

555 for good lyrics. That could be about a lot of celebrities.

Reading a hilarious, well-executed song parody--PRICELESS.
Still, I owe you three 5's for your latest!

:-D Thanks, all... it was kind of fun to write, too. Incidentally, has anyone run the French through google? Not that it actually means anything, of course ;-)

As a former HR professional, I'm shocked and distressed to read this -- I had no idea people fibbed on their CVs! But as a parody writer, this is funny as hell.

(ABC05) Aside from not having a single clue what the French part means this is very good, no lie.

( J ) LOVED this! I was wondering why I hadn't seen it before, then I saw you posted it the week before I arrived here - top stuff, Phil - loved the "Ohio" fit!! - 555

Oh yes, I always knock off a few years from my age... which usually results in me getting about $10 per hour LESS than I should get... anyhoo, hilarious parody with brilliant rhyming as per usual.

Glad that I happened by your fun bio
For, tho’ lies, I ‘m gonna treat’em as if re-al…
Say they are quite bizarre? That’s okay-o --
Sun of a gun, what big fun readin' this bio! :-)

This is delightful, Phil. I did something similar with the periodically updated bio I've sent off for various school reuinons, etc.
