The Lyrics

[ --- guitar riff intro --- ]

Well, you can tell by the way I wink an' smirk,
I'm an Idle fan, I love his work!

Cleese the clown can do no wrong!
Michael Palin must've smoked a bong!

And Graham Chapman,
An' Terry Jones --
-- they must've toked a dozen bones!

Gilliam,
the cartoon-guy --
-- I got no doubt that he was high!

Monty Python brothers make ev--'rybody ponder
The Mean---ing o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Brian's sandal's swingin' -- the multitude is singin' 'bout the
Meaning o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Meaning o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Meaning o' Liiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-ife!

[ --- guitar riff --- ]

Well now, I'm below a castle high,
And there's a chamber-pot pouring in my eye!

" Go away now, all you English-men,
I'm a Frenchman and -- I'll taunt again! "

Look on the bright-er
Side of life

" I'm Brian, AND SO IS MY WIFE !! "

We can try
To understand
A lumber-jackin' girly-man

Monty Python brothers make ev--'rybody ponder
The Mean---ing o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Lumberjack is swingin' -- the Mountie chorus singin' 'bout the
Meaning o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Meaning o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Splunge!
Meaning o' Liiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-ife!!

[ --- guitar riff --- ]

I'm an Enchanter!
I'm an Enchanter!

And some men call me Tim !

[ --- guitar riff --- ]

I'm an Enchanter --- and some men call me Tim !

THE MEANING o' LI-I-I-I-I-I-I-IFE !!!


Well, I can tell by the lack of parrot-squawk,
That there's something wrong, he doesn't talk!

You said he's "Norwegian Blue" ?
He looks dead to me, he doesn't move!

And now he's all right
Or so you say
He's pinin' for the fjords today
He's so wise
He understands
The Holy Grail's effect on SPAM

Monty Python brothers make ev--'rybody ponder
The Mean---ing o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

Ev'ry virgin winkin' -- Sir Galahad's a-thinkin' 'bout the
Meaning o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

SPAM!
SPAM!
SPAM!
SPAM!
Meaning o' Life!
Meaning o' Life!

SPAM!
SPAM!
SPAM!
SPAM!
Meaning o' Liiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-ife!

[ --- guitar riff --- ]

That parrot's not dead!
He's only resting!

He's only resting, yeah!

[ --- guitar riff --- ]

That parrot's not dead --- he's only resting, yeah!

THE MEANING o' LI-I-I-I-I-I-I-IFE !!!

Just one thin wah-fer!
Just one thin wah-fer!

Just one thin wah-fer --- BLEAAAHHH !!!

THE MEANING o' LI-I-I-I-I-I-I-IFE !!!

He is Johnny D and he's okay
he just made Monty Python's day
the OS by those Aussie dudes
the Gibb Brothers: Bruce Bruce and Bruce
he knows his stuff
he got the lot
he even got that ex-parrOT
his rhyming is delightful
it's quite left of cent-ah
he might well be a Python
just like his dear...

...ta-ta!

(SOTM) I wish I could come up with another pun here, but apparently my muse is also pining for the fjords. Still like this one a lot though.

I'm not a fan of either the Bee Gees or Monty Python, so I think I missed most of the humor here, but I can tell from the other comments that there's a ton of puns and other clever stuff.

Every spoof is sacred
Every spoof is good
Every spoof is needed
Like your neighbor's wood

Sorry. That started out as a perfectly good comment but now it's just gotten SILLY. Apologies for missing this earlier, Johnny BD; I must have been on your sabbatical. Excellent work. Major kudos from a guy who has spent entirely too many hours taking in the Bee Gees and Monty Python (though never, until now, simultaneously).

(ABC3M) This is still superb, and upon reading it again to TOS I realize how flawless, from a technical aspect, this parody is. Subconsciously, I have probably strived to emulate your format and notation more than any other author here; it's simply bulletproof, and beautiful with those "Liiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-iiiiii-i-i-ife!"
