The Lyrics

One amiright skill I've admired in others is the ability to take a song and make it fit another unrelated song. This one seems like a natural...at karaoke, when my friends sing "Only The Lonely", I can't help substituting the words "Boney Maroney". At least it seems to work better than the other way around. ;D



(Dum dum dum dummy doo wah
Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah
Oh oh oh, oh oh ah
Boney Maroney, Boney Maroney)

Boney Maroney,
Macaroni-skinny fawn.
You ought to see her
Rockin' with her blue jeans on.
I love my baby - And she loves me.
You know how happy - that we could be
While me make love - under that apple tree!
Boney Maroney.

(Dum dum dum, dummy doo wah
Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah
Oh oh oh, oh oh ah
Boney Maroney, Boney Maroney)

Boney Maroney,
Told her mom and father too
Just what we're plannin'
What we both so want to do.
We want to marry - want to wed soon.
Maybe some special - ev'ning in June
There by the light - of that silvery moon.
Boney Maroney.





In case you didn't know, Roy Orbison wasn't blind. He wore sunglasses because he didn't like the way his eyes looked. ;D

I love switched parodies. And this one ain't no phony baloney. Can you do it the other way around?

Nice switcheroo

Like Michael said, maybe you could reverse it. I did that several times last year with "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer", "House of the Rising Sun", and "Tom Dooley". Speaking of Roy Orbison, does anyone here remember "There Won't Be Many Coming Home"? It was on his "Fastest Guitar Alive" soundtrack LP, though it did not appear in the movie. I have an angry political parody in the works. Michael will love it. I bet he will come up with a counterpoint to it.
