The Lyrics

Phil Alexander (the Great?) wrote one about beetles, and I thought he'd butchered the spelling of the title, and that it was about the Queen of the Nile. After all, he also wrote "Homerian Rhapsody." Well, that got me thinking (always a slippery slope)...
Here come ol' Caesar, he come... groovin' in Latin
he got... Roman legions, he shoot... bow and arrow
he got toga to his knees
got to be an Emperor, he do what he please!

He goes to Egypt to the... Nile River
to the... Ptolmeaic, he sees... babe so royal
he say, "I want you, you want me
one thing I can tell you, Caesar loves Ptolemy!

Cleopatra! Right now! Under me!"

His big production in the... Roman Senate
got him... bloody daggers in the... spinal region
he's suc...ceeded by Mark Antony
"Hold your horses, Cleo, I will come down to thee!

Cleopatra! Right now! Under me!"

(guitar break)

This rollercoaster in the...early warring
won by... Octavian, calls him...self Augustus
she counts, "One and one and one is three
got to face a viper, 'cause there's no room for me!"

Cleopatra! Right now! R.I.P.!

Oh!
Cleopatra! Yeah.
Cleopatra! Yeah.
Cleopatra! Yeah.
Cleopatra! Yeah!
Cleopatra! Yeahhhhhhhh!
Cleopatra! Yeahhhhhhhh!
Uhhhh....
Cleopatra! Yeah.

Too kind, Michael - and to think, I only clicked here because I thought you'd misspelt "coleoptera" ;-)

good job... it took me a little while to get the phil alexander the great comment at the top. I gave this triple 5's this might not be quite as clever as the coleoptera one but i think the average parody fan is more likely to appreciate it

Ethan, the standard joke in our house is when someone's doing the cheese for a baked potato, that makes them Alexander the Grater...

Hey, Michael - when's the Iron Maiden "Alexander the Great" parody gonna be written, then? ;-)

"Five and five and five is three." Michaelopedia, this may well be the best parody you've done. Numerous great lines. I laughed out loud (not in a lol sort of way, but literally). This deserves a Cleo award.

Great write Michael. And watch the slippery slopes. I agree - this must be your best ever.

Very nice Michael. Oh, by the way, the Yankee season ends tonight. A note to Phil (and others probably) - a Christian Website has a few of your posts - http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/Page_Christian/NotEvenHere.html - thought you might like to know about that. Go Sox!
