Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Neighbor Mark has got a friend
She'll come over tonight again
At the thought I'm already weeping
There's no chance that I'll be sleeping
Television doesn't drown out their refrain
I complain
'Cause I hear sounds through my vents

I like it best when he's alone
Then I don't have to hear him moan
And she hollers like a street tramp
They shake the walls so hard they broke my lamp
My attention's grabbed
As they treat each other right
Throughout the night
These are the sounds through my vents

"Do you mind if I call you 'Pa?'"
"Hey, Babe, let's move it to the floor"
All their fantasies are leaking
'Cat and mouse,' I hear her squeaking
He's a hunter and she's hiding in her lair
She's acting scared
I hear the sounds through my vents

I don't really want to know
How their lovin' river flows
I hear everything that they do
Last night I think he wore her shoes
Guess they don't know not to kiss and tell
For they share oh so well
Through my vents

I know all the games they've played
Thanks to all the noise they've made
It is torture until morning
Mental images are forming
And I've tried using ear plugs to stop it
But I hear all their mating calls
Through paperthin walls
No whispers in the sounds through my vents

This was great! Guess you needed a place to...vent? So, does he have small feet, or does she have big ones?

I used to have apartment neighbors like was awful, especially, tryin' to get that dry wall plaster out of my ears...

Most poetic parody about kinkiness I've ever read. Great title, too! 5s

I feel your pain. There was a couple in the apartment above me that clearly didn't know how to tell time. Don't you know that they boinked, they boinked 'til a quarter to three? And beyond! And I was tossin' and turnin'... and, unlike them, with the desire to sleep! Oh yeah, I might as well give you what you really want from me: Good parody.

Nice job as usual...I enjoyed every line of it! I've lived in apartments before, so there have been times when I've had to deal with similar situations; even when I've kindly told 'em to turn it down they still don't listen (probably because the sound's so loud it drowns out everything else!). Anyway, this parody's very well paced and very creative; I will give it a perfect 5-5-5 vote. :)

Ding, dong, the drought is gone
And now we haveDing, dong, the drought the drought is gone.

Funny, funny stuff Arwen and excellently executed. Sorry I couldn't join you today, mine still needs some work.

On a side note, I was watching this comedy routine earlier this month: "...and yeah, I wish there was a neighborhood porn section at the local video store. You know, you could rent Mark and Judy's video. Then the next day you meet Mark in the street, right. 'Hey Mark, good work man, really impressed. Judy too, the whole first seven minutes were really quality. I gotta say I lost you when you brought the dog in, but up until then, great.' "

Ding, dong, the drought is gone
And now we have
A venting song
Ding, dong, the drought, the drought is gone

Fantastic! When you mentioned that you were working on a SOS parody, I assumed "mounds" would be involved... so what a surprise to find that you are in fact NOT the star of this parody after all!

I will never get the image of that hunter and prey game out of my head...

GREAT parody! 5's... It seems like Simon and Garfunkel parodies are always good...

"Mental images are forming" alright! - oh my god, yes, yes, YES - 555
Yet Another Dutchman - August 06, 2005 - Report this comment
555 I know what you're talking about, Arwen! Next to my bedroom, there is the room of these two old people (in their thirties) and there's occasionally a lot of squeaking and panting, which is okay when I'm fresh can go outside, but not when I'm tired and trying to sleep!

A sound job, indeed!

Jeff...hehehe...I don't know...he didn't sound too comfortable...; ) Thanks!

AFW...hee! Thanks a ton...I feel your pain!

alvin...three lovely compliments...thank you very much!

John...well, that has to count for something...=) Have you read many poems about kinkiness, by the way? Thanks!

Michael...while I appreciate the 5s as always...of COURSE that's not be all that I want from you...I'd also like for you to call me beautiful...; ) Get it right next time, okay? Thanks!

Serafina...thanks a lot...sorry to hear you've dealt with some rude neighbors, too!

2nz...LOL on the comedy bit...and I don't know if I can call the drought over yet...a sprinkle, perhaps...we'll see if it starts anything more. =)

2nz that wasn't obvious...; )

Red Ant...glad I could make you laugh...=) Thanks! accomplished...=) I was, after all, only trying to get such images in your mind...=) Thanks!

Dominic...great original music leads to great parodies, I suppose...=) Thanks!

Stuart...pretty sure I didn't want to be THAT effective...but thanks anyway...; )

YAD...thanks a ton...=) Best wishes for better timing on their part in the future...although, I'd like to suggest that you stop calling people who are in their 30s "old," as the greater population of this site might get a little offended...; )

YAD...I was only teasing...I'm sure that none of the resident old fogies were offended...except for maybe Mr. Pacholek...but you just leave him to me...I know how to calm him down...(if I can just get him to stop fighting with Alex for 8 seconds...) ; ) need for shame...unless that's you I'm hearing through the walls, mister...=) Thanks!

I've never lived in an apartment...but I have had to deal with rude, noisy neighbors in the past, especially during the last four years I lived in a mobile home (1996-2000). Living next to us were ten people who loved to blast their car stereos and act obnoxious in other ways. And we had a neighbor across the way (whose family moved there in 1998) whose hobby was blasting his family's car stereos...and he didn't even have a license. I'm glad we finally got out of there (in fact, this November it'll be 5 years since we moved out of the mobile home, which my parents had bought brand-new 21 years earlier).

Ahh...glad you got away from the rude folks, nally...=)

I guess we're just a little different; I'd be like pounding on the wall yelling, "turn it up, man!" Still, very funny stuff.

Arwen, I revisited this parody of yours because I love it so much! This parody is truly a masterpiece --- it would be a strong contender for the August 2005 Song of the Month --- absolutely brilliant work here, Arwen!

(ABC-S05) See above, and I still love this one, it's one of my favorites of yours. I have to admit I've sent sounds through vents that...nevermind, TMI. ;-)

(S) I wonder if you're hearing the same couple who kept wrecking Kristof's ceiling recently - or maybe it's Brad and Angelina - they made so much noise in their hut in Africa recently that, according to our national tabloid, concerned villagers started banging on their door with clubs
