Original Performer:

Bob Dylan

Parody Song Title:

"Gotta Snog Somebody"

Parody Written by:

Stuart McArthur

The Lyrics

Dean Martin said "Everybody Snogs Somebody Sometime" - and 10cc said "The Things We Do For A Snog" - and I say "Gotta Snog Somebody" (the extended mix)............the OS is available at Gotta Serve Somebody
You may be a quiet girl - protective of your honour
You might be the girl next door - or you might be Madonna
You might not've shared an icecream let alone a kiss
You might not know what the f*** an M.I.L.F. is

but you're gonna have to snog somebody
yes indeed, you're gonna have to snog somebody
Well, it may be your boyfriend, or it may be Brad Pitt
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You might be a jaded groupie for the Rolling Stones
or you might want to PUNCH the AIR! - with love for Katie Holmes
You may like to play with little boys (more than you oughta)
and try to cover up by dating Elvis Presley's daughter

but you're gonna have to snog somebody
yes you are, you're gonna have to snog somebody
Well, it may be Mike Douglas, or an older...(no, that's gross)
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You may not think threesomes with celebrities are nice
unless they're with Ms Jolie, or with Condoleeza Rice
you might feel a sudden need to wrestle guys in jelly
or you might feel a sudden need to pash Liza Minelli

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
yes indeed you're gonna have to snog somebody...
Well it might be Rebecca Loos - if not, ho hum, Posh Spice
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You may leave your cake out in the rain, like Richard Harris
You may want to marry Paris just coz he's called Paris
You may fall for Mia Farrow, boosting her career
and then love Mia Farrow's daughter more than you love Mia

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
yes, you're gonna have to snog somebody
well you might find yourself in Vegas, drunk and newlywed
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You might have the kind of job that fills your heart with fright
like d'livering a pizza pie to OJ late at night
or telling Whitney not to go for guys like Bobby Brown
or having to tell Russell Crowe the phone lines have gone down

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
ooh yeah, you're gonna have to snog somebody
well Bruce Willis is now too old - soon Ashton will be too
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

you might write your signature with little hearts above it
you might underplay your looks by dating Lyle Lovett
You might wow your fans by playing Indiana Jones...
then
watch Ally McBeal and say "hey, how about them bones!"

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
yes indeed, you're gonna have to snog somebody
Well it may be an intern - or it may be her head
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You may be so lovestruck that you're heading for the chapel
You may be so lovestruck that you named your daughter Apple
You might be a cheer-girl - shaBOOM-ing for the nation
or a singing nun in Austria, in need of fornication

but you're still gonna have to snog somebody
yes indeed you're gonna have to snog somebody...
Well, it may be Kate Hudson - or it may be her mum
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You may be a check-out lady - scanning at Wal-Mart
who dreams one day she'll get to scan Orlando Bloom's pop-tart
You may be a teacher giving private tutes (wink, wink)
You may claim that Carrie Bradshaw's columns make you think

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
ooh yeah, you're gonna have to snog somebody
maybe Donny Osmond - or you might prefer Maree
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

You might like to play the field when wifey's out of town
or try to nail Miss Aniston while she's on the rebound
You might be a jilted princess, love-shopping at Harrods
and end up in a Paris tunnel, dead as an ex-parrot

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
ooh yes you're gonna have to snog somebody...
fair enough you shouldn't have to make, with Courtney, love
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

you may have maternal itches, getting extra-itchy
and deal with them by saying "will you marry me, Guy Ritchie"
you might be called Portia, and move into Ellen's place
and end up on the streets - disoriented (like Anne Heche)

But you're gonna have to snog somebody
ooh yes you're gonna have to snog somebody....
Well, it may be a health-food nut - who munches roots and leaves
But you're gonna have to snog somebody

ooh yes, you are....

Great lines and euphemisms....and long...you've re-written 'War and Peace' here...fantastic stuff... I voted all fives....but votes don't seem to be registering..anyone else having trouble?

A fun read...but alas, I don't know the OS. And for the record, Carrie Bradshaw's columns DO make me think...

You had to mention Michael Douglas... Oh, wait, you said "Mike Douglas," the talk-shot host. Good. He's younger. (Not really, not even close, but he looks younger than Catherine Zeta-Jones' first husband!) Anyway, just having the guts to do this song (you're the first on the site) is worth four of the five points I'm giving you. Some spectacular lines, even if you didn't mention Donny Osmond's sister, "Absolutely Sweet Marie." (I just put her in because of the Dylan song title. I don't have a thing for her. Never did. Which leads me to...) Arwen: And what do they make you think about?
zimmy - September 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Michael Pacholek...I think this was done before..."You Gotta Swerve, Somebody"....maybe alvin Rhodes. Anyway, this is quite an ambitious parody, and succeeds in spectacular fashion....the pacing is beyond great, it is perfect. The content runs from Wal-Mart checkout clerks to Jennifer Aniston and other Hollywood types, and overall this is just amazing...a truly masterful parody. It's too bad not many know the original song, or this would have a TON of votes.555

thanks AFW - don't know what happened to your votes - it seemed to be accepting votes later

thanks Arwen - the OS is available by clicking at the top - unlike Carrie Bradshaw - no! I loved her too

thanks alvin - I might've missed somebody, but not if they've ever been in Who magazine

thanks Michael, especially for the "spectacular" - which is very flattering coming from you

and thanks zimmy for your "spectacular" too - I hope you didn't mind me lowering the tone of your OS ;-)

(SOTM) wow...lots of effort here, DKTOS so I'll have to take your (and everyone else's) word that it's accurate and done well. And it does flow nicely.
Agrimorfee - October 10, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) The problem I have with Dylan parodies of such extensive length is that it gets overwhelming to try and follow each and every verse. But you made this one instantly readable, even if DKTOS, leaving your audience wanting more and more of those great rhymes (and the horrible ones, too). Positively 555 Street.

A huge, tasty pie-in-the-face to the last few years of tabloid culture. A tremendous number of great couplets about not-so-great couplings. Early on I started mentally noting my favorite lines, but my brain quickly ran out of space. (Extra credit, however, for "munches roots and leaves" - did you come up with that?) And thanks for introducing me to the verb "snog" - I wasn't familiar with it before but I'm looking forward to learning everything there is to know about it. Stellar.
stuart mcarthur - October 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Spaff - your comments are still as witty as your parodies - the couplet/coupling line was a killer - alas, me not so much, the "munches roots and leaves" line is not mine but a revered Aussie gag ("roots" of course being the Aussie word for the point two bases further round than "snogs" - a term I'm proud to have introduced to you) - thanks for taking the time :-)

SOTM - Sorry, DKTOS. I went to musicgalore.net and tried reading the lyrics as I listened to the song, but Bob Dylan is too unintelligible for me.

(SOTM) See above, and many wonderful lines in here, particularly liked the "disoriented (like Anne Heche)". Some of the names are lost on me but still very funny.

thanks Peter, Kristof, JD, YWN, Rick C, and Red Ant Red Ant - as we discussed on the MB, I knew a lot of people would not KTOS, so I paced the lines to try make it a funny and easy read for those (majority of) readers as well

(SOTM) Hilarious parody. I only know this song from the airplane program I was listening to one time, and this is an amazing take on it.
Claude Prez - October 29, 2005 - Report this comment
All right, first let me say that though I love Dylan, I never cared for this particular song, and now I think I know why: it was rambling, random, and repetitive. And you fixed all three problems, and made it hilarious to boot. Huge improvement over the original. Can't begin to name my favorite parts, but overall I love the way you're cleverly referring to specific people instead of "you might like to drink milk" or whatever. Great stuff.

Wow, that's a lot of clever all rolled up into a real long parody. Good work, Stu. Here's to fun with commas: "fair enough you shouldn't have to make, with Courtney, love".

This is good! 'Course, the typical-American-college-girl response is "I gotta snub somebody". Definitely 5's for this one and most likely will wind up in my "top 5" list. NOW, everyone, go have a look at "Daddy Drives Just Like an Old Man." It is hard work spoofing a Dylan song! -- MM

interesting point about "retiring" parodies Kristof, because noone's ever talked about that - I definitely believe in retiring any parody that has won any SOTM medal, or that has been entered into 2 comps maximum - I wonder what others think - (btw this one has had very little success either on posting day or in its SOTM comp appearance, but this (ABC3-G) is now its second comp, so it's automatically retired in my book :-))
