The Lyrics

The very first time I sang somewhere and people laughed was many years before I actually wrote my first song parody. I had gone to visit my bro in Portland Maine in the mid 80's. One night we went to a bar and they had karoake. At the time I didn't know I needed glasses. I chose this song to sing and realized fairly soon I couldn't see the lyrics on the screen. I adlibbed my way through the song. Long story short everyone there was laughing hysterically. The only lyric in this parody that I sang that night is "I really can't see". This parody represents that night.
Folks I really can't be singin'
I can't see and I don't know what I'm readin'
Yeah I really can't see now
I can't see I need glasses for sight.

Yeah I really can't see now
I can't see and I don't know what I'm readin' now
Oh yeah I really can't see now
I can't see I need glasses for sight.

I really can't see
I really can't see
I really can't see.

See karoake bother me
I never wanted to be tounge tied
Folks I really can't see now
I can't see and nothing looks quite right
Yeah I really can't see now
I can't see and I don't know what I'm readin' now
Oh yeah I really can't see now
I can't see and need glasses for sight.

I really can't see
I really can't see
I really can't see oh no.

Hear you laughing at me
I never wanted to be tounge tied
Folks I really can't see now
I can't see and nothing looks quite right
Yeah I really can't see now
I can't see and I don't know what I'm readin' now
Oh yeah I really can't see now
I can't see I need glasses for sight.

I really can't see
I really can't see
I really can't see.

Tony - I do parody lyrics at karaoke so often that the hosts make a big deal out of when I sing the original words. Great parody here! In my case, the improvs often don't translate to the printed page very well. But this one did! Congrats to the one real "Wiseguy" on this site. ;D

Great concept, Tony, and funny backstory. I thought you could have milked it for more humor. It's quite a raunchy OS, so a little raunch here and there instead of the repetition would have nade this a total winner, e.g. does your affliction give you problems in the bedroom?
Tounge - really? You can't claim it as a typo because you typed it twice!
I like this parody a lot but for the above reasons 444

Thanks for the great comments guys. Well lifeliver I already have quite a few raunchy parodies on file. This was more of a true life/tell it like it is parody. Wanted to do more with the lyrics but was kind of stumped as to what else to add?
