The Lyrics

I feel a bit nostalgic about this one, in a way: the last time my wife and I did the crossword in bed on a Saturday morning would probably have been in a time BC (before children, that is)... and she is much better at anagrams than I am...

...in case you hadn't guessed, anything in SUPERCAPE is an anagram
It's nine a.m. on a Saturday
The newspaper's nearly all read
And my lovely wife's sitting next to me
As we tackle the crossword in bed

She says "Phil, have you looked at clue twenty-three
I'm not really sure how it goes,
Am I being dense, 'cause it doesn't make sense
It looks like the words are transposed"

Bridge: NA MA G-RA,
RA MAR G-NA,
RAGA MAN

I know it looks wrong, it's an anagram
They're really quite fun, can't deny
So if you're in the mood for some wordplay
Here are a few you can try

Starting with some politicians
For example I'M TORY PLAN B
And what genius figured
I'M AN EVIL TORY BIGOT
Is really a Tory MP?

Which world leader SCRUBS IN OLIVE OIL?
Who ADMITS ROT IN FRANCE?
And I'm sure HUGE BERSERK REBEL WARTHOG
Would like no more DOCILE FARTS

Bridge

BIG MELONS - a Hollywood Superstar
HE'S GROWN LARGE 'N' CRAZED also there
And guess which screen siren was MARRY NO OILMEN
GERMANY or WANKS? NOT ON AIR!

DON A MAN, AND MOAN, A DAMN NO
OCCASIONAL NUDE INCOME, too
They're all the same person, though I could do worse 'n
A LEWD LOONY or NON-STAR SHOE

I've written this song using anagrams
I've written this song tonight
So if you're in the mood for some wordplay
Say, can you get 'em all right?

WHOSE BUGGER, I HAD US MADNESS
Had an altercation next to RAIN
And now he's sent beserk by some ol' HORNY JERK
'Cause election time's coming again

Solve the anagram HE'S JAIL COCK MAN
Try and find ANGINA SHAFT
Did PROBE NO HELL ride AGED PUS well?
Now, try and say you haven't laughed

Bridge

Finish the song about anagrams
Please, get it over with, do!
It may sound absurd, but PIXEL ANAL HERD
Was the one who wrote this, just for you

A-ha, throwing down the GNAT LUTE to challenge the rest of us, eh? RIGHT I AM! Well, I loved it, so I guess my vote for this parody is VERSE THIEF.

Curse you! I spent four sheets of paper trying to solve this, you're bringing down the rainforest! In order of appearance, I have left question marks for the ones I cannot solve: PM Tony Blair, Virginia Bottomley, Silvio Berlusconi (forgive me, I got help from google for that one!) George Herbert Walker Bush (Technically Johnny D did it for me on http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/britneyspears229.shtml), Fidel Castro, Mel Gibson (I spent ages thinking it was a female, so tried every 'Meg' combination possible), Arnold Schwarzenegger, Marilyn Monroe, Meg Ryan (finally, it paid off!) Rowan Atkinson, Madonna/ Madonna Louise Ciccone, Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein, Iran, John Kerry, Michael Jackson, Afghanistan and I can't get those last two!!!!

Many props to the man who HELPED LAX RAIN.
As for Johnny D, the GAUNTLET has been thrown, you are completely wrong, and you should know by now that you can't vote FIVE THREES As for 'PETER ANDERSSON', your name took millenia to solve! I was stuck on words like 'desperate' and 'person'! And yes, 2nz, this is definitely WORTHY OF ANOTHER LOOK. Someone solve those last two or I'll go insane!!!

Well done Luke - the last two are linked: go for the second (here's another clue - it's a fabled THIN WHORE'S WIGS)... and I think you missed a philandering French president (are there any other kind?) in between Berlusconi and Bush Sr.
JD - I'm glad you didn't give me T' FREE HIVES instead ;-)

Oops... typo alert - no wonder nobody got it: AGED PUS should (of course) be AGES PUS

D'Oh!!!!!

Aha - Probe No Hell = Bellerophon and Ages Pus = Pegasus. Fine parody Phil. I missed it first time out.
Phil Alexander - September 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Well done, Guy... that just leaves the chap who ADMITS ROT IN FRANCE? (which is kind of appropriate, under the circumstances)
Your Digit - September 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Admits Rot In France = Francois Mitterand.
John Kerry - September 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Hi - I'm John Kerry and I approve of this parody. My name anagramed is "Honky Jerk". First I voted 5s for this parody and then I changed my mind and voted 3s later because I wasn't included in it.
Bill Clinton - September 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Hey John, learn to type. Your name actually anagrams out to "Horny Jerk" which is what I wish mine did. Mine is so lame - William Jefferson Clinton is 'Jilts nice women. In for fall'. Everyone knows I don't hang with nice women, check out Hillary.
Phil Alexander - September 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Nice one, Guy - and quite a cool anagram it is, too :-)

Well that just about wraps up the anagrams, then. Till the next song, anyway...

I like doing these puzzles a lot as well as the Cryptogram. Great job!

Has Heather seen this one? I can't believe it Anagrams and a parody, two for the price of one - gut wrenchingly good.
