Song Parodies -> "A Tongue-In-Cheek Parody Writer's Primer"

Original Song Title:

"Do-Re-Mi"

Parody Song Title:

"A Tongue-In-Cheek Parody Writer's Primer"

Parody Written by:

The Comedian

The Lyrics

All right, so many parody writers have been asking me how I manage to post so many adult-themed parodies, that I thought I should offer a basic primer...
[Johnny D]
Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you sing you begin with

[Rick D]
Do, Re, Mi

[Johnny D]
When you write parodies
It's a-few-see

[Parody Writers]
A-few-see?

[Johnny D]
A-few-see
The first three words just happen to be
A-few-see

[Parody Writers]
A-few-see!

[Johnny D:]
A-few-see-K-Y-oh-you!

[spoken]
Oh, let's see if I can make it easier

[sung]
"A", a word, pronounced like "eh"
"Few", not many or a lot
"See", what eyes can do with light
"K", a Kangaroo named "Spot"
"Y", the letter before Z
"Oh", a word that rhymes with go
"You", a person that you see
And that brings us back to "A"-eh-eh-eh!

[Rick D]
A!

[Johnny D]
A word, pronounced like "eh"

[Two Parody Writers]
Few!

[Johnny D]
Not many or a lot

[Three Parody Writers]
See!

[Johnny D]
What eyes can do with light

[Four Parody Writers]
K!

[Johnny D]
A Kangaroo named "Spot"

[All]
"Y", the letter before Z
"Oh", a word that rhymes with go
"You", a person that you see
And that brings us back to "A"!

[Parody Writers]
"A", a word, pronounced like "eh"
"Few", not many or a lot
"See", what eyes can do with light
"K", a Kangaroo named "Spot"

[All]
"Y", the letter before Z
"Oh", a word that rhymes with go
"You", a person that you see

[Johnny D]
And that brings us back to "A"!
A-few-see-K-Y-oh-you
Hey!
O-kay!

[spoken]
Now, Parody Writers, a-few-see-K,
and so on, are only some of the tools you can use to write a parody.
Once you have them in your heads,
you can come up with a million similar words and sounds by mixing things up!

Like this:

[sung]
Blow-hole, ca-ca, meat, ho, gay

[Spoken]
Can you do that?

[sung]

[Parody Writers]
Blow-hole, ca-ca, meat, ho, gay

[Johnny D]
Blow-hole, cocky ho, pay ho

[Parody Writers]
Blow-hole, cocky ho, pay ho

[Johnny D]
[spoken]
Now, put it all together!

[All]

[sung]
Blow-hole, ca-ca, meat, ho, gay
Blow-hole, cocky ho, pay ho!

[Johnny D]
[spoken]
Good!

[Rick D]
But it doesn't mean anything!

[Johnny D]
So we put in words.
One word for every note.
Like this:
[sung]
When you hide your true meaning,
You can post most anything!

[Together]

[All]
"A", a word, pronounced like "eh"
"Few", not many or a lot
"See", what eyes can do with light
"K", a Kangaroo named "Spot"
"Y", the letter before Z
"Oh", a word that rhymes with go
"You", a person that you see
That will bring us back to "A"-eh-eh-eh!

A-few-see-K-Y-oh-you, whoah!

Blo, me, lass, go, far, please, hey
(Blo, me, go, far, go, hey, go!)

Blo-me-me
Me-blo-blo
Hey-far-far
Ah-please-please

Blo-me-me
Me-blo-blo
Hey-far-far
Ah-please-please

When you (Blo-me-me)
Hide your (Me-blo-blo)
True meaning (Hey-far-far, Ah-please-please)

You can post most anything!

"A", a word, pronounced like "eh"
"Few", not many or a lot
"See", what eyes can do with light
"K", a Kangaroo named "Spot"
"Y", the letter before Z
"Oh", a word that rhymes with go
"You", a person that you see
That will bring us back to "A"-eh-eh-eh!

A-few-see-K-Y-oh-you, whoah!

So blow, ha ha, me, blooooooooooow...

So, blow!

Wheeeheeee!!!! Johnny, you have got to get Rick and Mari to record this... I've run through several ideas for this song, none of which have worked properly: this one is perfect.
Rick D - May 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Wow. Many years ago, I wrote a "catch". (I'm sure you know what that is) It's a 3 part repeated round where all the sung parts are perfectly innocent until you sing it all together, when a usually naughty message appears, caused by the juxtaposition of the words. That's what this reminds me of.

The best parody I've read all day. I dub thee, "Sir Made-Me-Laughalot". Have a 5 or three.

Yes, all-knowing one. "When you hide your true meaning, you can post most anything". Double entendres get kind of old for me, but you have single-handedly ;c) and masterfully revamped them. Cheers

Anonymous Moron - June 06, 2004 - Report this comment
...help... I have no idea what is happening here. Is it just me or does "You- a person that you see" make NO SENSE?! I will refrain from voting until someone explains how 'A few see KY oh you' is as jellylicious as everyone makes this parody out to be. I suppose a DKTOS will make me seem less stupid than I appear, although I didn't really find any 'double entendre' puns in this song at all. HELP!!!!

(May SOTM) Bizarre! Brilliant! I have to agree with the Anonymous Moron, though, the 'You -a person that you see' marred the chorus. Otherwise I was absorbed in this delightful work. 5-4-5
Johnny D - June 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Agrimorfee, Melhi, and Jake.

My thinking when I came up with the line ["You", a person that you see] was that when you say or think the word "You", you're generally applying it to a person other than yourself. The meaning was sufficiently intuitive to me that I didn't care whether it made complete logical sense, so long as it rhymed and fit the pacing, which it did.

I commend you for creating a very clever parody, and I would like to know what your "you" critics would propose in place of your line (maybe, "ewe" - a sheep who is a she?). But I cannot give a perfect score to a parody that celebrates the f-dud. 545.

A-few-see-kay Ewe!... because this song was really good. Didn't quite get the meaning of the *second* attempted double entendre, but I'll still give you fives.

Too funny...! ...but I'm totally lost on what "A-few-see-K-Y-oh-you" is supposed to mean. Maybe I'm too sheltered...
... - July 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Diddims---you don't want to know what it means. It's sort of a euphemized spelling of a popular obscenity.

Oh, by the way, I voted 5-5-5 on this one a while back but didn't comment.

Reminded of this by Tommy's plug - a vote replaced and still brings a smile to the lips. Make that a grin, or possibly even a smirk.
Adagio - just read your comment above, and thought (briefly) that you said "revolting"...
