"Lying King"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

You can fib, you can lie
Having the fight of your life
Oh, see that guy evading
Here comes the Lying King

White House room and the lights are low
Monica's got a place to go, Oh ---
Wearing tight blue dresses, getting on her knees
You come to dig striptease

Anybody could be that gal
You're not choosy; you'll be her pal
With a box of cigars out, ev'rything is fine
And so you drop your pants
And when you get the chance --

You are the Lying King
You will fib about ev'rything
Lying King, you think just with your ding-a-ling

You can fib, you can lie
Having the fight of your life
Oh, see that guy evading
Here comes the Lying King

She's a teaser; she turns you on
Even while you are on the phone
Running off to the bathroom
Try not to stain her dress
With Presidential lance
And then when Ken Starr rants --

You are the Lying King
You will fib about ev'rything
Lying King, you think just with your ding-a-ling

See that guy evading
Here comes the Lying King
Here comes the Lying King....

Not bad for an early parody, which I take it that this is since I haven't seen your name before and you've just done the classic newbie mistake to post a lot of parodies at the same time on your first day instead of spreading them out over several days (and its a monday update at that). Well, you're not alone so don't let that get to you once you see what I mean, but to speed up your amiright assimilation etc and help you to recover from it I'll now direct you to the Amiright FAQ, you'll find some helpful hints there if you plan to post more songs:

They were posted over several days. The FAQ does say the site is updated over the weekend, but it apparently wasn't this past weekend. Perhaps the editors needed some time off (don't we all?) Hence they all showed up today.

I've been writing parodies for years, but only discovered this wonderful site thee days ago. Thanks for the input.
Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd - January 31, 2006 - Report this comment
Yes, this was one of few weekends without an update, hence the Monday amount of parodies to disappear in was even larger than usual. But then again, I take it from “writing parodies for years” that we’ll be seeing more of you and that you might have a back catalogue to take from to keep’em coming steadily for while.

Anyway, trying to make a massive first impression with ten parodies or so at once is not a bad idea in theory (and had your parodies been on the Friday update you would have gotten three whole days on the front page) so my argument here is more about time vs recognition. We are a bunch of regulars reading and commenting on a lot of stuff but none of us are here every day, and even when we are here we normally don’t have the time to check out everything new even if we want too. For example, I was online for 2-3 hours yesterday and during that time I checked out some ten parodies in total. First I look after the combination of original songs that I know parodied by authors I’ve come to know as funny. Secondly it’s a draw between songs I know parodied by anyone and songs I know vaguely by authors I’ve come to know as funny. Most people have preferences along those lines when time’s a limit and for practical reasons. So with lots of parodies on day you’ll probably miss those who aren’t on that day and get mostly late checkouts by those who are. So if you plan to stick around, and I take it that you are, you’ll probably still get a low number of votes and comments per parody initially either way, but with a 1-2 postings per update schedule more comments and votes per parody in the long run.

Yes, there is a large backlog, much of it dated; trying to stay topical with new stuff as well.

The second paragraph makes sense and jives with what I would do also. Appreciate the advice and your taking the time to write.

A little belated but funny nonetheless. I suppose we're now in the Lyin' King II: Simple Pride
Tommy Turtle - February 08, 2006 - Report this comment
Luke, thanks... Have thought about how easy it would be to redo this to today's claimer of the throne of Lying King, and may someday... Will you be submitting again, or are you still wasting time with work, personal hygiene, etc.

Even for its datedness, it still works. The "righties" who inhabit the web site could learn a thing or two about humor from you.
Luke Brattoni - February 08, 2006 - Report this comment
A few short stories in the works, brimming with a bunch of 'WORK IN PROGRESS' works that accumulate at a rate greater than my speed of finishing them, have got longer work shifts lately... but I'll probably finish off my latest Eminem parody soon now that SOMEONE is too busy with her own little schedule to do so. *gruntles at Emi*
TT - February 10, 2006 - Report this comment
Agrimorfee, coming from one of your parodical accomplishments and obvious knowledge, that is quite a compliment, and this is one of the few times on this site where I am not trying to be the least bit funny. Thank you very much.

Looked at your bio; "amphigory" was a new one to me. I love learning new words, and also have been curious about your nick since seeing it. Cute almost-anagram! There is so much good stuff here to read, so many minds cross-pollenating, wish I'd discovered this site years ago. Thanks again.

(Back to funny again) Luke, know what you mean about works in progress, but you know what they say -- "Work is the curse of the drinking class." Hope you're back here soon.

nice work TT (I meant to "Yesterday" though - but this definitely fits the bill) - amazing to think, after 7 years of Dubya, that everyone could have gotten so outraged by Bill's private (or should have been) affairs - if only that was all we had on Dubya
TT - October 23, 2007 - Report this comment
stuart mcarthur, true enogh, if that had been all there was to Bill. Unfortunately, while Bill fiddled, the US Embassy and the USS Cole burned, foreshadowing 9/11, and nothing was done about it... plus a number of other scandals (Filegate, Fostergate, Asian-donorgate, etc... ) None of which excuses Dubya's malfeasance -- just been a terrible dearth of good choices here for quite a while. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Clinton exemplifies the politician who lies when the truth would serve him better. This is one of your early efforts? I've got a lot of catching up to do.

Patrick: This was one of the ten songs that TT posted on his first day here -- and quite by accident. See TT reply to Peter's first comment: Subbed three on Friday; didn't show on Sat. Subbed three on Sat., didn't show Sun. Subbed four on Sunday, and all ten showed on Monday, Jan 30, first day for TT.

It was one of my first posts here, but I had been writing parody since age 10. Have a few dated ones stashed away somewhere, including one on this topic, but readers usually prefer more topical stuff.

Note Peter's advice to post only 1-2 per day, which, with rare exceptions and a good reason for them (excuse:), he's adhered to ever since. Peter was and still is an elite writer. Newer writers like Rob Arndt should read and heed Peter's advice. Thanks for the v/c.

So! This is one of the famous 'Big 10'! Heh heh, prolix from the very start! I note with great interest your 'Presidential lance' line! We have an unreleased parody about, not surprisingly, the same subject, which contains the line "When the chiefly standard springs to bloom" :)

Peregrin, great minds run in the same gutter. ;)
Not sure if your line will be grokked by average US readers, though hope I'm wrong.

Prolix from the start? Learned to read at age 3, and haven't shut up since, much to many people's dismay. ;) "Life Ain't Easy -- n/m, you've already read, thanks. ;-D   Thanks for yet another read of "early TT"!

I have never had anyone quote Robert Heinlein at me before!
