Parody Song Title:

"Leprosy"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Leprosy.
That old rotten man just touched my knee.
Now my flesh is falling off of me.
Oh, I think I got leprosy.

Suddenly
I'm just half the man I used to be.
There are pieces coming off of me.
Yes, leprosy came suddenly.

Why'd my arm fall off?
I don't know, no one will say.
I know something's wrong,
'cause my leg just walked away (without me.)

Yesterday,
I could always lounge the time away.
Now my bed is in a slimy way,
Oh, leprosy's ruined my day.

Why did I get cursed
with this rot? I need to hide.
I'm sure I'm diseased
for my spleen fell out my side. (ooooohhhh.)

Leprosy
has become a big problem for me.
All my friends now run away from me.
Oh how I hate this leprosy.

Ewwwwwwww, this is gross.

Some might get offended. I didn't think it was that funny... but the pacing was GOOD! so you get a 5/3/5 from me. Great job.

I guess it must be a case of convergent evolution, but nearly all of this is in one of a dozen other "leprosy" parodies you might find round the net.

I agree. Very good pacing, and good lines, too. I don't know about the other leprosy parodies; hopefully you haven't been stealing lines, because that would be really lame. On the assumption that you didn't, I gave you a 5/5/5

Sorry! I voted before I realized this wasn't the one I thought it was! The first one is MUCH better than this one: Yesterday, piano was an easy game to play Now I have these stubs that still decay Oh I've acquired leprosy... or something like. I'll keep looking!

this is not the "original" (if you will), parody to the song "Yesterday". This is a rip-off of a rip-off parody. The original was done by British radio comics. There was a line that was: "There are buzzards flying over me" "Yes, I've lost my chance for extacy" "oh, leprocy, came suddenly" "Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be" "All my skin is falling off of me" ......or something to that effect. This cheese-dick: "Phantom-HitchHooker" ...is trying to be something he is not. .....funny ......and rythmic Cheeze Dikz R U PhantumHitchHooker

Was the original not by Jasper Carrott, the Brummie comedian? I have thought for the last 20 years it was......I may have been wrong though.

Heard this about 30 years ago and remember the following lines: Suddenly, there are pieces falling off of me. Now I've lost my chance for ecstasy, How I despise my leprosy. And there was a line that went something like: Why my tongue had to go, I don't know... I couldn't say. I said nngrh hrmmph, ngerr! How I long for yesterday. And, yes, I think it was Tom Lehrer - a genius - or, wait...was it Firesign Theatre? A whole group of geniuses...Can't quite remember. I am going with Tom Lehrer. Firesign Theater did the Loosner's Castor Oil song. If you want an experience you will always cherish, drop a tab of acid and listen to "How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?" - in stereo. Right on! Power to the people!
