The Lyrics

On the first parody I ever posted on Amiright ("The Erection of Edmund Fitzgerald"), Adagio's first-ever comment to me was "You have imagination!" Thank you, Adagio, my fellow Moody Blues fan --- so do you! ............ Before this parody of "Ride My See-Saw", I have included a parody of "Departure", a spoken poem that leads-in to "Ride My See-Saw".
(spoken, with a slowly-intensifying siren wailing higher and higher in the background: )


She can
Write
Songs
Well
There's just something
Inside parodies she's touched

The turn of a phrase
Or the rhyme of a line
Or the laughter she'll raise
Without fail every time

(a bit louder, a little higher-pitch: )

Her wonderful power
She discovered
To send a band up
With laughter
And make fun of them

(getting louder, even higher-pitch: )

She'll write a new song
For crowds yearning to sing

(even louder, gritting teeth, still higher-pitch: )

She'll write about bread dough
And hear us laugh-ing

(starting to freak-out: )

She has all these things in her parodies-hoard

(almost screaming: )

And she'll USE them - to FORCE us -

(screaming maniacally: )

To LAUGH - 'til we're SORE! - AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!!


( hard-rock electric guitar instrumental )

Rockin parody Johnny D... 15 rides on a see-saw for you!! I'm also a major fan of the Moody Blues... so a tribute after this fashion is awesome

Thanks Ash! Adagio is my first, main Moody Blues co-fan on Amiright, so this one was for her!
