The Lyrics

Somebody a few stone heavier than the ex-Beatle is over on that side of the pond pretending he's Ringo Starr...
I'm gonna make out I'm a Beatle
I'm gonna do a talk show on TV
I'll make the front page in all the papers
And all I gotta do is act fatuously

Well, I'll bet you I'm gonna be a big Starr
Pretend I'm Ringo, they will never tell
Five stone overweight, I'm a big Starr
And I can speak in Scouse so well

Well I hope that you could see me as a Beatle
Singing Beatles songs all out of key
The biggest fools are the Home Shopping Network
'Cause all I had ta do is act fatuously

We'll make a scene when we all hit the hotel
An entourage, with minders: one, two, three
I've got a beard and my hair is receding
And all I gotta do is act fatuously

Well, I'll bet you I'm gonna be a big Starr
Pretend I'm Ringo, they will never tell
Five stone overweight, I'm a big Starr
And I can speak in Scouse so well

Well I wish that you could see me as a Beatle
Belting out songs like ol' "Let It Be"
The biggest fool is the one who looks like Ringo
And all I gotta do is act fatuously
Here comes The Sun - read all about it...

I looked at that Sun article, Philbo ..... IMHO, that bozo doesn't look even a bit like Ringo, so if he can scam gullible fans without stealing anything from them beyond their star-struck babblings and a few moments of their time, more power to him!

You're right, he does look nothing whatsoever like Ringo (I'll bet his accent is closer to Geordie or Mancunian, too...) - this one comes from Chucky's top news article of yesterday

Awesome parody about a funny news story. 5's

:-) Thanks, guys... JB, I actually felt a bit bad suggesting that all you have to do to imitate Ringo is be fatuous, but couldn't resist the title anyway.

Blimey! If John were still around, he'd probably tell this imposter, "Yer a swine!" And he'd come back and say, "I impersonate Ringo regularly! Twice a week!" By the way, the author of the original, Buck Owens? Happy 75th Birthday!

The fake Ringo looked nothing like the real one, but your parody was spot-on.
