The Lyrics

Zees is just to show peetyfull state of Wooden parody I work on before Arwen is so kind to lend her experteeses to skin it out (flesh it out?). ALL CAPITALS is the only lines I have at first. Compare this with final parody and see how much diference she make!
[Well, I have no idea what the first line will be]
[And the second one's just a complete mystery]
[So, you see why I'm askin' for your expertise?]
HE DANCES WITH WOLVES, BUT HE ALWAYS SEEMS WOODEN TO ME

[And this verse is the same, for a haven't a clue]
[So I hope you take over -- see what you can do]
[Don't know how this line starts, but it ends "FIELD OF DREAMS"]
THE FILM SCORED A HIT, BUT HIS ACTING SEEMED WOODEN TO ME

[Oh, and the bridge is a blank]
[Wrote a draft but it stank,]
[And it left me chagrined]
OH! AND.... "REVENGE WASN'T SWEET!"...
[but the line's incomplete-]
[just don't end it with 'Vin']*

WELL BULL DURHAM WAS HALF-RIGHT, CAUSE IT WAS JUST "BULL'
[and again, here's a couplet that's only half-full...]
AND WHEN WATERWORLD CAME, IT WAS WASHED OUT TO SEA...
THEY SAY HE'S A STAR,
BUT I FIND THAT BIZARRE,
CAUSE HE'S ALWAYS SEEMED WOODEN TO ME
*Because you know how zee elf love Mr. Deesels!

Ms. Critic, you are not worth my times, stoopid, jealousy hussy.

Meester Kristoff, you I should spank!

Now THIS is some funny...um...stuff. Don't let the modesty and the lack of lyrics in this one fool you...I STILL only wrote a tiny fraction of the other parody...though my brilliance may've rubbed off on the Mistress...; )

This piece of unfinished clap-trap deserves what I'm going to give it. Three 5's.

To Arwen....Who is Velma Kelly? Have you not seen Chicago? OK, we're officially broke up now...:-)
Arwen - April 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Oh good hell. I have ONE moment of confusion (brought on by Mr. Pacholek suddenly speaking with a sexy accent...who knew?)...and the world breaks up with me? Of COURSE I've seen Chicago. Seeing things is what I do, dingaling.

Who's Velma Kelly? In 1975, on Broadway, Chita Rivera was. (Mercy... grrrrowll...) In 1995, on Broadway, Bebe Neuwirth was. (So that's what was hiding under Lilith Sternin Crane. Frasier, you dog!) And in 2002, in the movie, it was... Catherine. Each was a foxy chick who'd teach you a trick... and all that... jazz.
