Parody Song Title:

"Enema of Fate"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

It's the first time I've submitted two parodies to the same song on the same day, but once the idea for this one struck, I didn't have a choice... Note that it does scan properly: in the original song, "Henry" is always sung with three syllables (and no 'H'), i.e. "'ennery"

There's a kind of Humphrey Lyttleton "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" ending feel to this one: "As the enema of fate lurks hungrily in the bidet of destiny, and the air-freshener of hope is overcome by the effluvia of eternity, I see it's the end of the show..."
I'm Enema of Fate I am
Enema of Fate I am, I am
I wait in the bidet where no-one knows
Then come at you like a fireman's hose
And every one needs an enema (Enema)
Like they need a wash around the gland
I'm a prostate-cleansing enema
Enema of Fate I am

Second verse same, only worse

I'm Enema of Fate I am
Enema of Fate I am, I am
Re-entry feels, let me explain, as
Sending into orbit round Uranus
A rocket-launching enema
There's pictures of me in your email spam
I'm a world-famous enema
Enema of Fate I am

(Solo. And believe me, you'd need to be solo)

I'm Enema of Fate I am
Enema of Fate I am, I am
They'll come up when you least expect 'em
An nice-y icy spicy feeling in your rectum
A stomach-churning enema
Designed for questioning in Vietnam
I'm a WMD enema
Enema of Fate I am

E-N-E-M-A
Enema (Enema)
Enema (Enema)
Enema of Fate I am, I am
Enema of Fate I am

Yeuch!

If you record this, I'd like to sing the background vocal ("Enema!"). Good "Uranus" pun.
Phil Alexander - January 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks all... Say, Steve, along with the "Uranus" pun, did you think the "rear-entry" implication was maybe too subtle?

Restoring my vote of 5-5-5. Philbo, when I composed my recent enema ditty for this HH tune, I had forgotten about yours --- I'm glad our two enema-parodies are sufficiently different from each other!
