The Lyrics

Slow down - my stone just passed
By god let's make this tour our last
Just chokin' out the Sixties tunes
Bankin' some dough and feelin' groupies!

Ba-da-da da da da da - feelin' groupies

Hello old fans - how's it hangin'?
It's now your granddaughters we're bangin'
Did ya bring Vioxx for me?
Doin' Viagra
For the groupies!

Ba-da-da da da da da - feelin' groupies

I've been solo, you fools, even longer than Cher
I'd "bury the hatchet" in Garfunkel's hair
But the crowds still demand him, which stupefies me
Art, I hate you
But there's groupies!

Ba-da-da da pa-da-ba da - uh - ack! -
*cough* *hack* *wheeze*

MEDIC!

Hello morphine my old friend...

You had me goin', Spaff. I thought this was about THE Stones! And isn't Paul Simon still married to Edie Brickell? Yeah, and his first wife was Carrie Fisher. He can only marry women who are actually shorter than he is. Maybe he can get Christina Aguilera to put some clothes on!

Thanx, Philbo & Bub & Charlie & Billy.
Michaeolopedia: Let's see if I can out-trivia the trivia master: Carrie Fisher was Paul Simon's second wife, Edie Brickell his third. Paul appeared with Edie on SNL in '94, where she sang "Green," from her album Picture Perfect Morning (produced by Paul and S&G coproducer Roy Hallee); it was wonderful and I've loved the song ever since. In my first draft of this parody, the third verse went:
I've had no hits for years - my relevance is pale
I miss Carrie Fisher and Edie Brickell
But I scrapped that because it isn't funny and I thought you'd be the only one who'd appreciate it. Honestly.
Two final things: (1) I'm thrilled about the S&G reunion and I'm prepared to travel hundreds of miles to see them. But I had to be cynical here. It's my job. (2) If it's a parody about the old-fart Stones you're after, look no further than Merry & Pippin's "Pretty Spry (For an Old Guy), which is great.

Sorry to keep commenting on my own damn parody, but I also need to point out that the Claude-4-Prez-style ending is my lame attempt to be as funny as him. I even considered submitting this as authored by A Roomful of Monkeys, but I didn't know if C4P would appreciate that. (And if he did, I was afraid the bastard would take all the credit for it.)

Hilarious. But I really don't think Simon will be bangin' groupies. I would iif I were he....but I'm not and so I won't. I was at the Central Park reunion in '81.

AZB: Wow -cool. I've heard that concert, of course, but live recordings never compare to actually being there. I'm a big bright green pleasure machine of envy. And I'm with you on the groupies thing - Maybe we could get Paul to give us some of his, especially if, as you suggest, he's not treating them properly.

Hey! This isn't "Bohemian Rhapsody"! Nonetheless, amazing stuff--the "bury the hatchet" line killed me. I mean, us. WE mean us. And funny you should mention us, because we originally considered inviting any quality-minded types to submit under this name and enter the big pissing contest. But we thought Chuck might not appreciate that. But it certainly wouldn't bother us; plenty of typewriters in here and you get used to the smell.

Just a clarification: When I said I was at the '81 reunion I meant I was simply there, not that I was banging groupies there. 500,000 people and all of them stoned...it had the Woodstock aspect to it. What really sucked was when I had to use the bathroom and had to step over thousands to get there. Also if Paul buried the hatchett in Art's hair, I doubt Art would even feel it anyway...it would get lost in there. I still dream about rock stardom though...telling my roadie: I'll take the blond in the front row, the redhead in the second, and the brunette in the third. And I wouldn't need Viagra either....but then I'm not 61 years old.

Fun song...well done. I liked the 'bury the hatchet' line too. :D

Pat & Wild: Thanx.
Monkeys: Bohemian Rhapsody will be #25. You've been warned. And I may yet enter the Room - I'm thinking that having dung flung at you could more fun than it sounds.
AZB: Don't worry - you don't look a day over 60.

Yeah! I thought it was going to be the Stones too.... can Paul Simon even GET a groupie? :-D the last line cracked me up...

"Groovy" parody with a good conclusion. I, too, saw an earlier reunion - 1983 at Dodger Stadium - and agree that the parody puts the current version in its proper perspective.

Merry: Nah, I could never compete with your Stones riff.
JJ: I'm jealous of anyone who's seen S&G in concert. Hopefully I'll get to this go-round. Static: Muchas gracias.

Excellent Spaff, was tempted to vote a 455 for a pacing blip and a missed rhyme but given that those are incredibly minor problems in an otherwise hilarious parody you get full marks. Nice breaking into TSOS too, I take it this was made from the greatest hits since that is the next track.

I'm glad you were able to enjoy it, Red, problems and all. (Care to elaborate on the missed rhyme?) And belated thanks, Billy Don't Be a Florio.
Red Ant - December 23, 2005 - Report this comment
The "Doin' Viagra" was the only pacing blip to "doot n do-do". As for the missed rhyme, S&G use an imperfect rhyme triplet of "keep, sleep, me" in the last verse, so "hair, Cher, me" was what I was referring to, "me" seemed a bit out of place. But, I often misrhyme, sometimes severly, to get a funnier line. I've submitted one to this OS for tomorrow and I see I messed up the "ba-ba" part is 7 "ba" (as you have), whereas I have 6. Still the best parody of this OS I've seen.
Spaff.com - December 23, 2005 - Report this comment
I would argue that "me" doesn't rhyme with "keep/sleep" and isn't even meant to be a near rhyme. What you have is a rhymed couplet followed by an unrhymed line, just as in the other two stanzas. But, hey, this is subjective; I'm not Paul Simon. Anyhoo - thanks for the read and the comments. I'll be interested to see your parody (no matter how many "ba"s it has).
