The Lyrics

From the rock opera Mommy.
(Mommytobe:)
Got a feeling Angelina's gotta be a good name
It's really much better than Julie
Or June, or Heather

(Daddytobe:)
Well, I think Angelina's really not a good name
It's good for a streetwalker
But our daughter? Not ever!

(Mommytobe:)
It might be good for ladies in theatrics
Or those women who are hired to report the weather
What if it's a boy?
What if it's a boy?

(Daddytobe:)
What if it's a boy?
We'll name him Paul!

(Mommmytobe:) You didn't say that!
(Daddytobe:) Oh yes, I said that!
(Mommytobe:) You know that's one name I've hated all my life!
(Daddytobe:) I didn't know that! I thought you knew what it means to my rich Auntie Ruth!

(Mommytobe:) Ah, just forget it!
(Daddytobe:) Let's not forget it!
(Mommytobe:) No, I'd rather not try to discuss it!
(Daddytobe:) I don't want to have an argument!
(Both:) Naming this fetus is hard, to tell the truth!

(Daddytobe:)
Well, I think Billy Bob has gotta be a great name
It's got the ring of someone smart,
And brave, and clever
It exudes the air of someone involved in logistics

(Mommytobe:) Or at least some guy who looks good in leather!

(PAUSE)

(Daddytobe:) What about Leroy?

"someone involved in logistics or looks good in leather" cracked me up. Great job, Agri. I'll have to check out the others. 555

Very impressive, Agri! How long does it take for you to write a great parody? The reason I asked is that I observed the number of votes in your parody and lyrics are well paced and organized. Mommy, the rock opera! Interesting! 555.

I love this parody.

Christie Marie M--Time taken depends on how good the idea is. It is is much easier for me to write a parody with the basic idea in mind beforehand, rather than getting a song in hand and trying to parody it from scratch.[BR] The entire rock opera took about a month to write after I commtted to it.

Good point, Agri! I had been writing parodies since elementary school. The first song I parodied was "I've Been Working on the Railroad" back when I was in Kindergarten. I sang some of my parodies in high school at a prep rally. What I do to write a good parody is to write on paper, in pencil, edit lyrics, and have someone else read it to get feedback. Pacing is pretty easy for me because I used to write haikus in Eng. Lit Class.

Still love the joke about the name Billy Bob being smart and clever. Also I always loved the name Leroy it's just a fun name! Good parody here Aggy it's nice to revisit it.

Meriadoc...like Romney's IRS returns, that is a closely guarded secret. :)

(ABC) (WARNING: BAD JOKE AHEAD) Maybe Leroy would be a good name if the baby gets born early (THE BAD JOKE HAS ENDED). Pretty good stuff for such a short song, 555!

I like that they can agree on my favorite line: "Naming this fetus is hard, to tell the truth!"

I hope you do check it out, I did finish it. Look on my Author page for the entire track listing. It was literally a labor of love.
