The Lyrics

This parody is by a long, long way the quickest from conception to performance of any I've ever written: I heard a chap playing it at an open mike, there was one act between us, then I played this parody. Unfortunately, first time around I had no idea what the chords were, but it has gone pretty well since.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
What I really mean to say
Ain't no cooking when she's gone
And when she's gone too long
Have to get a takeaway

Ain't no washing when she's gone
However badly clothes are messed
Ain't no ironing when she's gone
And when she's gone too long
My smelly clothes, like me, de-pressed

But I won't, I won't,
I WON'T (I won't?)
i won't x426.5

...repeat myself


Ain't no nookie when she's gone
That's the bit I really hate
No, no nookie when she's gone
And when she's gone too long
Guess I'll have to mas..

I can tell this one was a quick write because it wasn't as well-developed as some of your other parodies. But it was still pretty damn good.

Phil - I know what you mean. I am very proficient in improvising parodies on music jobs and at karaoke. I usually have to do major rewrites before they pass the amiright test. This however is good...sometimes the muses whisper in our ears and our only job is prompt and correct dictation. Good job. ;D

Thanks Matthias & OMR - I think this one also shows the difference between a parody that works well at amiright and one that works well in performance: for an amiright parody, this is lacking (IMO), yet the setups for the gags work much better when sung to an audience. But I don't have enough time (or the inclination, TBH) to do different versions.. so this is what you get here :-)

Works for me... but then, I'm a guy.
