The Lyrics

My first parody done all the way through. Until I found this sight, I was like most people who substitute lines here and there in a song, but after reading some of the great stuff here, I decided to try and finish one all the way through. Any feedback and pointers would be appreciated.
All my teeth are brown (All my teeth are brown)
And my hair is gray (Even pubes are gray)
I went for a walk (Tripped on lines of chalk)
And my hip gave way (HMO won't pay)

Now I can't perform (Damn thing won't transform)
My wife thinks I've turned gay (Brokeback Mountain way)
Damn, my corns are screamin' (Pain killed with corn squeezins)
It's just a normal day

Tried a Google search (Tried a Google search)
And much to my dismay (Much to my dismay)
There I was listed number one
For "Folks who'll die today" (Hope there's some delay)

Yes the 'Reaper' likes them old (Reaper likes them old)
And he don't mind decay (I've got that in spades)
Ow! my corns are screamin' (Ow! my corns are screamin')
It's just a normal day

Liver spots are brown (Liver spots are brown)
And I've had a stroke (And I've had a stroke)
I'd go for a walk (I'd go for a walk)
But my walker's broke (And my walker's broke)
If you cannot smell me (If you cannot smell me)
It's your lucky day (It's your lucky day)

Ow! my corn's are screamin' (Where's my damn corn squeezins?)
It's just a normal day (All my corns are screamin')
It's just a normal day (Where's my damn corn squeezins?)
It's just a normal day (All my corns are screamin')
It's just a normal day

Hi Dirty Harry, welcome to AmIRight. I saw your post on the 'warning, parodies soon to be released thread' so I thought I'd drop by to visit this. A very good first effort, especially varying the background vocals and for including them all. Two minor point for improvement, the rhyme scheme in the last verse ideally would have followed The Original Song (TOS) as you did in the first; ie I was hoping for a rhyme with "stroke" and "broke" other than "day". Two, this seems a bit random but that is okay with me. You got your first 555.

I can't really tell you how long is average for making a parody, too many factors are involved with that. As for your other questions....

....Here are a two articles you might find useful; the first is a FAQ, the second a parody guide written by yours truly (see reply #38):

Fine first effort, Hairy.

Awesome first effort, DH! Lots of folks on this site appreciate variety in lines that repeat in the OS, and you delivered with the varying background vocals on many of the lines in your parody. If you spend some time here, you'll discover that all the regular writers have various points that they like to emphasize in their parodies -- for example, some like to follow the exact rhyming pattern of the OS (even to the point of trying to rhyme with every word in the OS -- an accomplishment I applaud when I see it, but too much work for me). Hope to see more by you in the coming weeks.

Red Ant, John Barry, and Rex: thanks for the encouragement and all the helpful hints. I hope to be able to continue to write some more, time permitting.

LOL funny, plus all the favorable things that Red Ant, John Barry, and Rex said... especially multiple internal rhymes. Looking forward to sequels; just remember, Royce Miller is a woman, or these guys will never let you live it down!!!!
