"He Writes The Songs"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

He's been a blithe snore-giver
Since he wrote his very first song

He put some turdworthy melodies together
He makes you sick
When he writes his songs

He writes bad songs that make the whole world cringe
He writes bad songs that show that Barry's un-hinged
He writes bad songs that sound like dung hurled high
He's Manilow, he writes bad songs

His tone's like green spit and goo
And he's got sighed-moan-waste to be sold
Now, when you hear his music, you'll,
Cry, "Not again!", fearing more from Manilow

He writes bad songs that make the whole world cringe
He writes bad songs that show that Barry's un-hinged
He writes bad songs that sound like dung hurled high
He's Barry-Blow, he writes bad songs

Oh his music makes you sick
And hits your eardrum just like a brick
All he writes is schlock he molds when his can moves

His sick swill's a fart
And it's a real vile waste of art
It's from him
It's for you
It's for you
It's from he
It's his hurl-pile symphony

He writes bad songs that make the whole world cringe
He writes bad songs that show that Barry's un-hinged
He writes bad songs that sound like dung hurled high
Ban Manilow, or he'll write songs!
He'll make you sick,
When he writes his songs!

funny parody and i couldn't agree more that "barely man-enough" sucks...however, this song was written by bruce johnston about brian wilson, which certainly makes more sense....5s

Johnny: Pretty good, old son, but considering your established oeuvre (love that word), I'm still waiting for you to do "I Height the Dongs." Alvin: Trying to imagine Barry Manilow surfing... Even on the rather low tides of Coney Island and the Rockaways, he'd "wipe out."

I don't agree with your point of view, but you deserve fives. Turdworthy is a great word to coin. I don't understand why people hate Barry Manilow. I just don't like the lyrics to Mandy although I like the melody. It makes me think of a drug addict and his co dependent girlfriend.

Funny idea to bury Barry...Altho, I'm not big fan of his...I do think some of his efforts seemed pretty good...but I guess he's sort of like old wallpaper, now...Your parody is excellent, tho...high fives

Great stuff here, JD. It's obvious you've spent time in New England....555

Gee Johnny--Manilow's got some pretty good more recent stuff; I like it when he sings the songs and someone else writes them (at least the lyrics) But your parody is pretty unique, as always.

Thanks, Royce. I'm actually not totally against all of Barry's music. He's just an easy target for parody and humorously-exaggerated-disdain, that's all. On AmiRight, all celebrities are fair game, more or less... ;-)
