The Lyrics

If you haven't yet read Scene 3, "Let A Woman In Your Write", please read it first. If you missed yesterday's start of our parody of the entire musical, please enjoy it in order!

Scene 1 is here.
Scene 2 is here.



In Scene 3, Professor Turtle regrets his decision to allow Ms. DoFiddle to enter his hitherto-unbreached shell. Eventually, though, he calms down and recollects the joys of posting at AmIRight, whose readers respond to his musings.



TT:
Sir Chucky made this site for entertainment
Which was a truly awesome thing to do
(although, at times, I wish that we got payment)
But...
With a little bit of luck
And a little bit of pluck
I perchance received a laugh or two

AIR:
With a little bit… with a little wit…
Why, some giggles, grins, hoots, chuckles, and laughs, too!

TT:
I'm sure my par-o-dies have made you groan some
I'm well aware my puns are putrid poo
And sometimes, writing gets a little lonesome
But...
With an awful lot of luck
It's unlawful: so much luck
I met Fiddlegirl, and we were two!

AIR:
Schmoozed a little bit… and the Fiddle bit…
Found a kid who’ll pit… her wits in sync with you!

TT:
So far, FG: Straight as an arrow
But with a little bit of luck,
She’ll run amuck!

Demented sex makes maid and turtle merry
Can we be good, and keep our songs all clean?
TT: his lex-iconic fav'rite: cherry
But..
With a little bit of pluck
And if carefully, you duck
Two-entendre: sneak your puns, obscene!

AIR:
With a little bit… hide ‘em in a “crypt”…
With a little bit of luck, they’ll get right through!
With a little bit… it’ll be a hit…
With a little bit of poonin’ luck!

TT:
They always threaten me with censor
But if quite cleverly, I tuck
Get nod from Chuck!

The sword of love leads man to whelp of neighbor
In afternoons, when no one else is home
If caught, the judge gives 20 years’ hard labor
But...
With a little bit of luck,
Though the warden’s tongue might cluck,
Chat her up each week from prison phone!

AIR:
Flirt a little bit… tat-for-tit a bit…
Give a little fit… in vis-its on the phone!
Be a little s*it… for a little bit
Get a little writ for bloomin’ luck!

[Interlude: AIR gossips about FG joining the "envelope-pushing" TT.]

TT:
Not banned; it played, which helps support my thesis
That you can write ‘most anything, it’s true
And Fiddlegirl will iron out the creases
But...
With a little bit o’ luck
When I've no more clams to shuck
She has sense of humor just as blue!

AIR:
With a little bit… no, they'll never quit…
With a little bit o’ luck she’ll pull him through!
With a little bit… they can be legit…
With a little bit o’ bloomin luck!

TT:
Against guide-lines for parodists: sex, panderin'
And give ChuckG's poor heart another clout
By makin' rhymes: up skirts, to take a gander in
But...
When you're out of rhymes for "luck"
Find out finally: Shvantz, Stück
You can always leave some room for doubt!

AIR:
With a little grit... You can "fiddle" it
They'll acquittal it; your schmuck won't be left out!
You can whittle it... then submittle it
Non-committal, it: muck snuck, not struck!

Non-committal, it: muck snuck, not struck!



Tune in tomorrow for our next exciting episode, in which Ms. DoFiddle weighs in!

Moves the story along well; I thought we might see FG's father in this scene like in the OS, but this is your story and your singing of this part works well here. Writing and pace is excellent as with the others.

(Applauds): Enjoyed it lots! I don't even have to tell you what I think of this parody! :) Yesterday's performance took the cake and you have the most wonderful voices as you sang (while I used my imagination)! Nice of you to add the rest of the cast of AIR in this scene! My usual rating of 555 stars!

Some truly crazy n' cleverly couched ribald rhymin' nicely advances your haaaracters here FG & TT!

First off, gotta mention "When you're out of rhymes for "luck", Find out finally: Shvantz, Stück"...Oy play! A strong candidate for couplet of the year!

Cool -mented:makes:maid:merry alit'in'!

"The sword of love leads man to whelp of neighbor... now that's a line!

thesis:creases couplet I thought quite cleverly hints Le Prof. considers 'Reviza' valuable but, at this plot point, still his subordinate

Bit:tit:fit:visits:writ:grit:it:fiddle:acquittal:whittle:submittle:committal all 'fit' perfectly and nicely mellifluous (no, not Gibson!)

Now... what we all want to know is what's with all that panting going on behind the curtain! (wait for obScene 5??)

TJC: Appreciate your analysis and comments, as always. As for behind the curtain, we're just gettin' warmed up! ;)

Andy P: Thank you. :)

OMR: Or the editorship of Esquire... ;) Thanks for v/c!

How did the loyal and always-applauding Christie Marie M get left out? ..... (yes, TJ, this is why Reviza is *still* subordinate heh heh wink wink!)

Christie Marie M: Please forgive my AIR-headed partner. Good thing *someone* on this team is meticulous. :) :) :) ... Thanks as always for enthusiastic reviews and applause! ... however, honestly compels me to confess that your imagination greatly exaggerates a turtle's singing capabilitiy :) .. but let's go with your imagination, 'k? ;-D ...Thanks for v/c, and rest assured that the chorus of AIR will appear several more times!

AFW: Echo FG's thanks!

Timmy1000: Several characters were dropped from OM, to avoid making it too complicated and to focus on the main plot, e. g., Higgins' mother, and certain others I won't give away. Our objective was not quite to duplicate the movie, but to parody it with a "story" of our own. Appreciate your approval of that decision -- there might be similar switching in future songs -- and of course, appreciate the kind words re: quality.

TJC: Andy Primus isn't going to believe this, and FG is too modest to mention it, but both the "demented sex" and "sword of love" lines were *totally* FG's creation. .. and that's the truth....speaking of which, said truth might compel moi to confess bashfully (last remnant sale from the bankrupt TT's House of Humility) that the Schvantz Stuck was from said House.

thesis:creases also FG. See why I keep her around? ... and thanks for keeping that alcoholic, bigoted wacko out of it! :D

Andy Primus: Thanks for joining us in acknowledging him without whom this song wouldn't be visible at this minute - nor anyone else's, all 65,000 or so. We do slip in a few more tributes here and there, if memory serves correctly. ..(Now, about line 3.... heheh! ) Thanks for v/c, Andy.

Old Man Ribber: Possibly (doubtful, lol!), but I think I'd pass on both ;) Great ref to the movie, though -- do you have the whole thing memorized, or just playing along with ours, or watching it again for the occasion? Either way, I'm impressed -- and flattered :) Thanks for v/c!

You two really put on an amazing piece of work doing the entire musical. I'm still sturuggling through the other parodies that tie to this musical. The most epic of all works done on this site in my opinion.

Intresting concept, I was a bit lost reading it but it's pretty cool that the two of you have joined forces in battle.
Tommy Turtle - November 02, 2009 - Report this comment
Matthias: Well, at times we get along OK .... oh, you were speaking metaphorically, "in battle" -- gotcha. :-D

It's *so* much easier to follow, and more meaningful, if you've seen the movie, which is well worth the rental -- an award-winning classic from both Broadway and Hollywood. Thanks for v/c!

(Artistry) It's a bit hard to judge this one fairly as it's only one part of a 16 part musical...why you chose the 4th part is a little odd, I'd would've gone for the first to get people wanting MOAR. Ahem. Nice idea, but I got lost in the grand scheme of things.
Tommy Turtle - November 03, 2009 - Report this comment
bobpiecheese: FG said that she tried to enter the entire all-in-one-page version,
http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/myfairladylernerloewe16.shtml
but some people whined.

IIRC, the decision to choose this one included the facts that it has tribs to the site and ChuckyG; the AmIRight Chorus is included; it's a common theme of "dancing on the edge" and sneaky double-entendres; it recounts the joining of FG and TT; and hence might stand alone without knowing the plot of either the original film/play or of our story.

Sorry if it wasn't a choice to your taste.

IMHO, the opener didn't match this one in quality or laughs. "You Did It" (Scene 11) was technically the most challenging, with its varying structure, line length, rhyme scheme, etc., but it's *really* meaningless outside the context of the entire musical.

Thanks for v/c.

Rex: It *is* quite the compliment to FG, isn't it? ... and that is just *too* big of an opening (your comment, not FG, wink nudge ;-) not to plug the description of that exact moment, in Scene 8 of the same parody:

http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/myfairladylernerloewe7.shtml

"Sheep? Sheep?
"He gave up sheep tonight
"No more does he drool at woolen mound!"

Thanks for v/c!
