Song Parodies -> "Jester, eh?"

Original Song Title:

"Yesterday"

Original Performer:

The Beatles

Parody Song Title:

"Jester, eh?"

Parody Written by:

Red Ant

The Lyrics

Inspired by The neverending challenge of Jesterdays, which was started by our resident "Yesterday" expert, Peter Andersson. To make this a bit more interesting, the entire parody was written without using the letter A once, while still maintaining all of the "ay" sounds. I think I sacrificed a *bit* of coherence in doing so. ;-)
[intro]

Jester, eh?
Sit down lunch on my odd word buffet...
Notice something very weird, no hey!
It's before B, do I convey?

Jokingly
Grime, snot slept in tubs: confusing ye...?
Just some gibberish sung musingly
This jester weighs - in jokingly

Why... we.. love this so
I don't know
Time for survey
I did something wrong
To this song
We turned to prey

Jester, eh?
There is no rule which we will obey
See us flower in our own bouquet
You'll then receive - the jester lei !

Did... I.. go loco
I don't know
Time for survey
I did something wrong
To this song
We turned to prey-ey-ey-ey,

Jester, eh?
Would you run to rob some girl's toupee?
Wipe it in some melted dog sorbet
Then rinse it off - in her bidet !

mmm mmm mmm ...

I hope you enjoy this April Fool's parody, even if it gets posted a day or two late.

Gosh! You do a song fifteen times and stand alone verses some additional fifty and people start to refere to you as an expert! I've used money much more often than that but the IRS still don't take my economical expertise word on that they ask for more than they should. Well, fifteen or not, it's been quite a while and I do have additional ideas for it so I might take a new crack at it, tomorrow. :-)

Thanks Peter, Yet Another Dutchman, John, MrMac, Pat, LeeBee and Dee.

Peter: After 15 parodies of this song, hundreds of partials on the thread and the other 100 or so full parodies here you STILL have new ideas for "Yesterday"? Holy cow. Actually, you referred to yourself as an expert a while back on my "Writer's Block". ;-)

Yet Another Dutchman: Glad to see you back on the site, it has been a while. As for your question, not exactly; it was rat sorbet and I didn't rinse the toupee off, I used it to wipe the rim clean. Just kidding!

Bizarre... and clever... and given the omission, an excellent precursor to this one by Merry & Pippin

Didn't even realize there was a Saturday update. What an April fool I am!.... Would have been good even without the 'A" gimmick; with, really clever, Jck Rd Nt! 555

Thanks Larry, Stu, Adam, Alvin and Tommy Turtle. Next up: parodying the Major-General's Song without using the letter E (not!) - actually, parodying "Let It Be" without using Es would be interesting....

Since ya done me honor with good jobs on other TT suggestions, here's another freebie fer ya:. Since bra size is so popular here, with Rick D. doin' E (huh?) and Cat doin' A, how 'bout a gal who decides not to get implants: "Let It B".
No Es? (and Phi A. and I are soooo impressed there was no apostrophe in yer plural "Es" :) Gal then goes bra shopping: "Fit It: B". You tak it from thr.
Red Ant - April 05, 2006 - Report this comment
Tommy Turtle: Look for "Big For Bs" today. No Es (but still has E sounds), which was no easy task. .
