The Lyrics

Would you believe a parody of a song with no original lyrics? Mel Brooks, with Buck Henry, created the orginal 1965 show.
It’s a remake!
It’s a new take!
It’s a TV show from long ago
They’ve recast and refilmed
To make some dough.

Agent Max Smart!
Now Carell’s part!
Alan Arkin’s Chief’s a-barkin’.
Will Anne Hathaway’s 99
Win Max’s heart?

99—bright and fine!
86—bungling tricks!

Ain’t CONTROL boss!
Go get KAOS!
If this movie plays, in ninety days,
It’s a new Mel Brooks musical
On Broadway!

Get Smart!
Original theme, in various forms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daowPKIj0CA Extended jazz version (with a little "Proud Mary" inserted): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4evZlcDJgSQ

Melanie - I can appreciate doing a parody of a song that has no lyrics. It is no easy task. I did a parody about the game of Tetris back in December of 2003 to "Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairies (The Nutcracker Suite)" by Peter Tchaikovsky, which incidently is the background music for the original game.

As I recall it was a challenge not having an OS lyrics guide to help me along. Doing a lyric-less parody is a lot harder than one may think. You did a fine job here and I applaud your parody. Pacing is spot on and the parody is great. Well done!

I have always maintained that writing lyrics to a lyric-less tune is NOT a song parody...but this was clever nonetheless.

I'm going to see this movie, soon! Love this with the lyrics created! Very Rogers & Hammerstein quality, too!

Rodgers and Hammerstein? What a compliment! LCC, expand on your R&H comment and tell me exactly what you mean, please. (i.e. butter me up with analysis!) Everyone, thanks for the comments!

I've refrained from "butter" these days, Sir. Thanks you!
