Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Nine hundred down. Almost to a grand. Here goes nothing... hopefully, that's just a figure of speech! Please note: All references in this song to "my wife" remain fictional, as I remain, sadly, unattached.
If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.
If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.

A normal woman's troubles will be small
but she's a parody writer's downfall.
As soon as he marries her, then he starts
parodies that don't get too far.
But if you make a funny woman your wife
you'll get lots of folks to give you fives.
A funny woman is the very best kind.
She'll always stimulate your mind.

If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.

(instrumental break)

So if your friends say she has bad face
go ahead and marry anyway.
So her feet are clumsy, or she's kinda fat?
Take it from me, you'd do worse than that.

If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.

(Hey, Mike!)
Hey, Johnny!
(I saw your wife the other day!)
Yeah?
(Yeah, and she's clumsy!)
Yeah, she's clumsy
but she sure can cook, baby!

If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.
If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.
If you wanna write parody to get you a five
never make a normal woman your wife.
So if you want laughter coming through
get a funny girl to marry you.
(repeat 'til fade)
I would accept a wife who's clumsy -- like I'm one to talk -- if she sure can cook. Even if she pouts while doing it. Maybe even especially if.

"Humorly incompatible" is quite a challenge, indeed. 5s and love OS.

LOL! Very VERY funny, Mr. Pacholek...I loved it from beginning to end! Glad to hear you're accepting of a clumsy pouter...; ) And I can, for the record, cook like a dream!

So you "cook like a dream" and have a "smokin' bod" that's "way hotter than Liv" Tyler. (Based on her past comments.) That does me no good out in Wyoming, kiddo! Chicago's roughly a halfway point. What do you say we meet in the Wrigley Field bleachers and give those long-suffering Cub fans something to celebrate? (I'm kidding, I could never do that in public.) Anyway, I want to thank everyone for their kind words. And by the way, not one mention of George W. Bush, good, bad or otherwise. See, I can do it, and do it better than my critics. As Tony Kornheiser would say, "Wilbon... I win!" (Yeah, right, you win, Tony.)
