The Lyrics

Any resemblance to any actual person is strictly intentional.

FG's comment at this old parody inspired yesterday's two spinoffs. But as TT says, "Riff Three Times On The Same Song, 'Cause It's Fun To". So ...

[FG singing:]

When do I begin
To write some story for this parody I see?
It's oh-so-boring, typing drafts out endlessly
The "simple" truth, I "simply" send them to TT
He ends; I start

Since he said "Hello"
He's brought some meaning to these half-passed whirls of mine
Forever, he is thinking of a pun or rhyme
With wit as sharp as knife, he finds a funny line
Although quite smart --

-- He will impart
Such ovine, sheepish things; with Angie's thongs --
-- His wild imaginings; his smelly fart --
-- He'll write thereof
Smut I can't bear, so, "Go! --
-- "I'll write it only"
Halfway through song
I'm feeling lonely
I e-mail "The Man":
Ends my despair

Pow! Songs done so fast…
Our Pie, American: six hours: put away
With just a glance, Sir; thou dost add much fine wordplay
Bestow on readers, swill that mars; we churn away
But votes are fair

"How long? *Days* have passed!"
Poor Fid—no leisure; all her powers slip away [1]
No chance in France that she will finish it today…
-- "TT, I need you. Can you make this work?" -- "OK"
And he'll repair...

[1] See "Girl" by The Beatles for the British pronumciation of "leisure" to rhyme with "pleasure" there, or with "measure" here.

Love means good collaberation - as Cole Porter says in Friendship.

Dual'witty at its finest! Working--feverishly n' intently--alone and yet together... shall we deem your ever-excellent sub'emissions 'collabsturbation'?

You've begun, middled, and ended it very well

Many thanks to 2Eagle, ewePhonics (hehe), and AFW! (I'll count on TT to fill in the jokes ...) ;)

Now where do I begin with this one? Oh, great parody writing ditty since "My Fair Fiddlegirl"! There are times I also needed TT's help, but he's already helping me throughout his pacing guide and I'm learning from his parodies. Is that right, Tommy Turtle? Great work, you two! Yep, you two are one of the greatest pun kickers around and I enjoy puns a whole lot! Ditto on AFW's comment as well! One of my fave OS's and always enjoyed it lots! I sang all three of your parodies of the same OS's through Karaoke and it sounded great! 555 stars!!

@FG: "Never send a (fiddle)girl to do a man's (or turtle's) work", is that it? ;) ... Well, it may be a dirty, rotten job, but *somebody*'s gotta do it..... OK, pressure's on, so here goes:

2Eagle: I wouldn't call it "love", exactly. "Love/hate" sometimes, heh heh! ;-) kidding! "Friendship" -- definitely. Thanks for v/c.

Hooked on ewePhonics: It depends - -are you saying that if we keep doing it, we'll go blind? ... maybe we could just keep collabsturbating until we need glasses. (lol and thanks!)

AFW: So, we're the Bette "Middler" of parody? ;) ;) ;) ... thanks for v/c!

Christie Marie M: No joke here -- *very* gratifying to hear you say that TT has been of help to you. Also that it sings/karaokes well. Thanks for your always-wonderful comments and vote, and if you ever really do need help with a single question or two, feel free to drop me a line, and will answer as time permits, although you know that I'm parodically spoken for in general ;-) Thanks for v/c!

Still DKTOS and never saw the movie, but this parody was still excellent

Phil Nelson: I never saw the movie either, fortunately [1], but the song is beautiful. I had a pointer to nice piano midis, but they've been taken down. Try YouTube. The lyrics are a bit corny, but the piano rendition is superb. (I can email it to you.) Thanks for v/c.[1}

Briefly, author Erich Segal got drunk one night and tried to write the corniest, most-chichéd story possible. His agent said it's a sure-fire movie hit, which it was. Considering that the ending is given away in the movie's opening sentence, I don't think you or I missed much. -- TT
