Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Oprah has a corner on her market space
TV shows and books and magazines
Oprah's not content to be just everyplace
So she extends her line to sexy underthings

Oprah tees! Oprah drawers! Extra large - BRAS!
La la love those Oprah thongs
Oprah tees! Oprah drawers! Extra large - BRAS!
La la how they like those thongs

In a couple of years she's the queen of linger-ee
And her casual wear bumps off Jaclyn Smith
And massacres Kathie Lee
(Ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the marketplace
Oprah finds new product lines a thrill
All her competition's gone without a trace
And in the evenings she hangs out with Dr. Phil

Oprah trees! Oprah yards! Trailer parks - YAH!
La la how they like those lawns
Oprah treats! Oprah drugs! Oprah gan-JA!
La la how they light those bongs

In a couple of years she runs light and land and loans
With the price of her shares soaring off the charts
For Harpo Produc-shee-ohns

Happy ever after on the stock exchange
Oprah swallows Fortune Fives at will
Now her short-term goal's to own the human race
And in the evenings she still hangs with Dr. Phil

Oprah's queen! Oprah's god! Of us all - JAH!
Oprah makes the lights go on
Oprah see! Oprah do! What she want - Y'ALL!
La la la we're Oprah's spawn

We're all just Oprah's pawns
In Oprah tees and thongs!

[Oprah:] Thank you.

This wasnt funny at all....Just prejudice against Oprah, and all blacks..2-2-2
Phil Alexander - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Where d'you get the "prejudice against all blacks" from, Dolce? You can't argue that Oprah's a legitimate target for satire, and this one's certainly got bite. Must admit, though, I didn't know she'd gone into selling lingerie...
Melhi - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
I thought this one was about her business expansions, enormous wealth and the sway she has with her huge following. I had expected the usual fat jokes. Well done, Spaff.
Diva - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Why not? We parody Madonna, Celine, J Lo, Brittany and Martha. I love and admire Oprah. This parody is too aloof to be considered insulting.
Adagio - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Well done, as usual!! I didn't know she had branched ou into lingerie either, but I think the whole parody is on the mark! (It's about Oprah, not blacks) 5's
Claude Prez - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Well, since Oprah is black and you're (presumably) not, this is obviously RACIST and you certainly have a lot of NERVE being this funny and talented when all I have is my envy and hatred. Fives for you mister and let that be a lesson to you.
Robert J. Pagliaro - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Well done. I believe Oprah caught Stedman modeling the lingerie. And I'll take Martha over Oprah anytime; Martha is a babe.

Dolcezza: Something tells me you won't enjoy my next parody, "My Boyfriend's Black."
Philbo & Melhi & Diva & Adagio: Thanks - I'm glad you got it. Did you hear Oprah topped VH1's list of the Top 200 Pop Icons? Seriously. She beat out Superman, Elvis, the Beatles, and, well, everyone.
C4P: Back atcha. Envy and hatred is what this site is all about.
RJP: Did you really just call Martha a babe?
Adam Zen B - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Oprah's biggest sin is bringing that disgusting creature Dr. Phil into our living rooms....and producing a terrible remake of a classic film, "David and Lisa"...and having an overly sentimental show....and trying to own the human race...I could go on forever. 5-5-5

Spaff, this is a perfect example of why you're now the King of Parodies at Amiright. (With Oprah as your Queen, presumedly! :-D ) Keep up the good work.
Peregrin - November 04, 2003 - Report this comment
Spaff, first of all, CONGRATS ! Secondly, great work here ! Thirdly, La Dolce Vita : Better cut down on the cranky pills!
The Great Karlando - November 05, 2003 - Report this comment
I read this like 5 times, and I have no idea how that one crazy person found this to be racist. The thought of an Oprah underwear line to me is just too funny, and it has nothing to do with the fact that she's black. All fives...this was extremely well done.
Wild Man - November 05, 2003 - Report this comment
Nice job.
Spaff.com - November 06, 2003 - Report this comment
Karlando & Wild: Thanx! Merry & Pippin: Wow, comments from both of you? That tops all honors. Everyone knows you're the true amiright royalty, but it's difficult for us to crown you, not knowing whether you're queen(s) and/or king(s).

Hey Spaff! Extremely funny and very cleverly written:-) Definately 5 "Oprah's" from me
Spaff.com - November 11, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks, Who cares. But the thought of five Oprahs is a bit mind-boggling.
Jeff Reuben - November 13, 2003 - Report this comment
Great song...I don't see the racist thing in there either. Like an explanation on that one.
Smurf and Mr. Horse - November 13, 2003 - Report this comment
No racial predudice here. Just a fun sense of a colorful (no pun intended) subject like Oprah to write about. Thumbs up Spaff! It was funny and well thought out in this parody.
Spaff.com - November 26, 2003 - Report this comment
Belated thanks to Jeffy & Smurf & Horse. For anyone worried about racism, please rest assured that this song is NOT on the Robert Lund CD "Elves Gone Wild!" (www.elvesgonewild.com)

Thanks for picking up on that, C4P. By my count, you owe us TWO of those.

Mighty Spaff, how did I ever miss THIS one first time around? 5-5-5 on the Oprahmeter. Well done, as always.

And it's shameless-self-promotion time again.....here's my take on "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" .... a little Bondage-and-Discipline parody called "Rope My Knees! Rope My Arms!":

Spaff - This one was originally posted just before I hopped on this site so I missed it. Again, thanks to Claude P, Johnny D and Rick D for resurrecting this great piece and showing me the light (or heavy, in Oprah's case)with their recent comments. No, don't see any racism in the slightest here and that seems to be a 29 to 1 verdict from the other comments I see above. Peregrin (re: your Nov. 4 comment), don't worry, I believe all the "cranky pills" are in safe hands now (mine). Even the three Fives I gave this won't stretch out far enough to cover either Oprah's body or her incredibly vast holdings and personal wealth. And I salute Oprah for showing everyone that it's just as ok for a black woman to be very fat and very rich as it is for any other person to be very fat and very rich.

Johnny Deet & RAD: Okay, okay - you win.
Paul: Allow me to join you in thanking those shameless pluggers - and C4P - for this brief revival. I, too, hope to be very fat and very rich some day.

Oh Mighty High-Volume Spaffmeister - I just posted a friendly plug of this Beatles parody of yours over on my parody "Rope My Knees! Rope My Arms!" ..... I thought that would be only fair, reciprocity, you know!
Paul Robinson - January 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Spaff, I could try and out-self promote Johnny D but I now recognize I could never hold a candle in that area...he'd just snatch it out of my hand and plug it up some parody's sphincter and I'd be, well, "stuck", I guess, giving him another "5-5-5" for whatever it was 'cause I'm sure he'd have me laughing MY ass off...I'll just stand aside and watch the master at work for a while, try to get back to the big leagues someday. My Thursday Self-Promotion class session is cancelled...Right now I'm way too relaxed up here in Northern California to even finish a new parody. These 10 hour days (of consciousness) are wearing me out! If I don't conk out soon how will I get my 14 hours sleep tonight?

Spaff.com strikes again! Heh, I'd love to see "My Boyfriend's Black" -- I thought about trying it, but then I thought, "that MUST have been done before..." But maybe I'm wrong... Anyway, bro, gimme five, and I'll give you 5-5-5... (sorry was that racist?)

Belated thanx, Lee OJ. And you're right, P-Rob, no one will ever outplug Johnny Dangle, who's got more plugs than a women's dorm during a battery shortage.
Paul Robinson - May 24, 2004 - Report this comment
Spaff - I really like that women's dorm plug analogy. Trying to figure out a way to tie it to "Ringing like the doorbell at a discount whore house."
Spaff.com - September 29, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, P-Rob, as long as I'm catching up on old comments of yours on old parodies of mine...
You've got it all figured out. Any analogy is funnier when you add "in a whorehouse." FEEL FREE TO PLAY ALONG AT HOME, KIDS: "That's [adjective]er than a [adjective][noun] in a whorehouse!"

Hi you know I'm black AND I LOOOOVE Oprah. I think the song is hilariASS. I dont see any thing prejudeist about it. I would giv five s but I do not like the comments from some of the people and so therefor 4's!
Robert J. Pagliaro - November 16, 2006 - Report this comment
Liked it the first time I saw it - and yes, Martha is a babe. But Spaff, when you get to my age, Kathie Lee Philbin also is a babe. Remember, Farrah Fawcett got me through an early puberty - (I think I had the poster on my ceiling).

Thank you, Fae, both for your comment and for your hilariASS voting methodology.

Bob: You're on your own with those Martha Stewart "Caged Heat" fantasies. But as I've said elsewhere, "Look above my bed - I've still got Farrah's poster there."
