The Lyrics

I've wanted to parody this one for years, and the idea came while listening in the car this morning... and this almost wrote itself :-)
First you find a sexy dress
Put it on with great finesse
Find a bodice trimmed with lace,
You basquet-case, basquet-case, basquet-case

Wearing dresses smooth and slinky
Knee-high boots look kinda kinky
Lookin' like you gorra go
To the Rocky Horror Show
Feelin' ecstatic in drag

Just one little thing, contextual:
I am not at all transsexual
Just a guy who looks big-spendery
In a manner gender-bendery
If I see a vicar's habit
I can't help myself and grab it
Two, four, six, eight,
Time to transvestitillate

Wear your sexy dress with style
Sure you're male - sticks out a mile
Frilly undies do excite
So impolite, impolite, impolite

Wearing this stuff make me skip round
If I need cash - have a whip round
Oh, how it feels
Wearing six-inch heels
Walkin' erratic an'
Not in the Vatican
Feelin' ecstatic in drag

Funny parody of a funny song!
Johnny D - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
All right, all right, what's all this then? Not a single mention of "knickers"? 5's for "transvestitillate" alone!
Tim Mayfield - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Well done Phil. I'll trans-fer you 5's.
Phil Alexander - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
:-) ...yes, Mari, the original is one of the best songs, ever. IMHO.
JD - I changed "knickers" to "undies" 'cause it sang through better. If I'd known that you preferred knickers... so to speak ;-)
Thanks, Tim.

Great title and wordplay!
Ravyn Rant - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Oh, WOW. The wordplay almost rivals Tom Lehrer's. I am so impressed...this is the first parody I've looked at this morning. I doubt I'll see one better. Great job! (~stands, applauds~)
Rick D - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, you did good, but I was first! (Actually, when I did it, I was trying to impress you.)
Phil Alexander - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
To impress me? How sweet :-) Well, you succeeded - your Fat Again Rag is a goodie.
alvin rhodes - January 11, 2005 - Report this comment
first class wordplay in this one....bravo...5s

(SOTM) Unlike the subject this parody does not drag. Nice one Phil.

(SOTM) I'll think of something clever to say when my brain stops burning.

(SOTM) Something to offend transvestites AND the Catholics! Way to go! :) 555

(SOTM) Brilliantly written, your rhymes never fail to transvestitillate.

5 bras for you. ("Bra" means good in Swedish).
Jeff Reuben - February 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Bras are generally a good thing anywhere =)
Claude Prez - February 11, 2005 - Report this comment
I have a feeling I really wish I knew the original. Some great rhymes of course. And ditto on "transvestitillate".
Phil Alexander - February 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Yes, Claude - you should find a copy of the original - I'd strongly recommend the triple-CD "The Remains of Tom Lehrer" if you've got the odd $45 to spare: follow any of the google ads - if it's the same ones as I'm seeing, they'll all have it.

(SOTM) I loved this :-)

(SOTM) DKTOS, Phil...but this was VERY funny!
Spaff.com - February 20, 2005 - Report this comment
Great rhymes, Philbo. Gorra go/Horror show, spendery/gender bendery, and of course "transvestitillate," which needs to enter the lexicon. I'm ecstatic.
Johnny D - February 21, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above.

SOTM--I am TOTALLY depressed that I don't know the original...=(

SOTM - "Vatican - ecstatic in" was lovely wordplay, Phil - DKTOS but 5s on trust :-)

SOTM--Excellent...look what the cat dragged in!
Ethan Mawyer - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM - i like the original better but this is still so well-written that it's worth triple fives
2nz - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Very good, Phil. But if anyone starts chanting "Let's do the PHIL-BO AGAIN!" I'm outta here.
Phil Alexander - March 25, 2005 - Report this comment
"Let's do the PHIL-BO AGAIN!"??? Well, it's just a jump to the left...
