The Lyrics

#11 in the H2G2/White Album series. While researching this one, I found out there is an official TOWEL DAY on May 25th in memory of Douglas Adams. Anyone interested is encouraged to keep a towel with them for the day, due to all it's awesome uses.
Mean, pleated seams, a vitamin spot
A color stain that protects it from rot
A comfy design, that can show you good hues
Man, I have to tell you all about
The use of Prefect’s Towel

Booze wiping screen, good West to East
It covers face near a Bugblatter Beast
When on a beach it’s a thing you can use
Man, you’d feel like such a hoopy frood
If you had Prefect’s Towel

It makes an awesome sail
And it can warm you too
It’s dries you without fail
Jacuzzi is built in the threads
And it’s a mini-raft
That’s not too stale

Oh, you have to try this sucker out
This thing that’s Prefect’s Towel

You wave it in emergen-cies
Wrap it a-round you
To NOT freeze
We don’t know what life has out there
But with your tow-el
You’re Pre-Pared

Mean, pleated seams, a vitamin spot
A bowling lane that’s the size of a yacht
Sub-Etha online, that you just can’t refuse
Hey, you sass that hoopy frood, Ford P
Who has that Super Towel
Yes, you sass that hoopy frood, that guy
who owns Ford Prefect’s Towel

Keep 'em coming! I can turn this entire album (with a lot of outside help from experienced Amirighters) into a tribute to rednecks you can totally turn this into a series about the best book series ever written. I'm surprised that you've written so many and they're all just about the first book.

Thanks for being so good about following each parody, Matt. You're feedback is one of the things that keeps me going when I get stuck. I've been dropping hints about the 2nd and 3rd books, but I know what you mean, it's mostly the memorable stuff from the 1st book. I'll see what I can do about that. I need one from the point of view of a flalloping mattress. VOON

Also you should write something about the restaurant at the end of the Universe! Have you mentioned anything about the Point of View Gun yet? (It was bigger in the film than it was in the book but it was still pretty big)
