The Lyrics

Good afternoon, everybody! "Norm!" "What's up, Norm?" This parody!
Rebecca: Don't go serving that big ol' fat guy.
He's never paid his tab before.
Mm-hm-hm. I don't imagine, he'll pay it this time.
We can't support him anymore.

Norm: I would not leave 'cause you give me trouble.
It's not like I drain every jar.
Mm-hm-hm. I paid in good times. I'm having bad times.
But this is just my favorite bar.

Fraiser: Don't go trying some new neurosis
to explain Normie's love for beer.
Mm-hm-hm. It might just give his liver thrombosis.

Woody: Hey, Doctor Crane, you talk real queer.
We don't want clever conversation.

Carla: That never got Coach very far. Mm-hm-hm.

Lilith: I can't believe I'm stuck on this sitcom.

Frasier: But, dear, this is my favorite bar!

Cliff: I need to know that you will always be
the same old Nahmie that I knew.
Ah, but what will it take 'til you listen to me
the way that I listen to you?

Norm: I said I like you, and that's sufficient.
So, Cliffy, take that right to heart.
Mm-hm-hm. Nobody likes you any better.

Cliff: I guess it's still my favorite bar!

Norm: Right!

(saxophone break)

Rebecca: I don't want Carla killing nobody.
Going to jail would be too hard.

Sam: This beats sitting in the Fenway bullpen.
Guys, this is just your favorite bar!

I love your idea, but I have to admit it was a bit hard to follow. I'd probably need to hear the song again and read the words in time. Not bad tho!

Well paced and some very clever word play. Like the way you quoted different people. Of course all the jokes were lost on me as some vague cultural osmosis process tells me that this was about some sitcom that I've never watched.

Cheers! Michael. =)

Very clever, hard to perform. Favorite "Cheers" Gag: Old guy comes in, tells Sam that everything in bar is completely different from when he used to come in when he was young, points out that a wall wasn't even there. Sam asks "What wall?" Old guy says, "The one behind Norm."

That was really good. Like Leah said, it was just hard to follow. That doesn't take away from the fact that it was a very enjoyable read. Good job!
