The Lyrics

Let's see, I've never seen a female hobbit, do they have hair on their feet? If so, then we'll never settle this...
I know it's great
this song by Merry
I know the Pip won't spill the beans.
Still here we are, all of us guessing:
Schlong or a belter for their chastity?

Why should we worry?
They'll make us laugh still.
Look at the jokes
posted today!

Can't get it right
truth we can't borrow
can't get it right, baby
just how they play.

Deep in a hole
I've been so horny
all of the girls
running away.
I've longed for love
like everyone else does
but I won't be searching
toward Pip and Merry's way.

Know which it is, yes?
You think you know, folks
just what they are, baby
but they won't say!

Can't get it right
truth we can't borrow
can't get it right, baby
just how they play.

I know it's great, this song by Merry!
I know the Pip won't spill the beans.
Still here we are, all of us guessing
all of us guessing!

Can't get it right
truth we can't borrow
we'll have a blast
macho or fey?
At Amiright
can't understand, now
can't get it right, baby
why won't you say?

Can't get it right
truth we can't borrow
we'll have a blast
macho or fey?
At Amiright
can't understand, now
can't get it right, baby
why won't you say?

Oh, can't get it right
truth we can't borrow
we'll have a blast
macho or fey?
At Amiright
can't understand, now
can't get it right, baby
why won't you say?

Boy, or girl?
Why won't you say?

A good gender bender parody.

I don't think this will get settled until the Amiright Convention. I hope they plan to attend! I say that would be the ultimate place to ask them reveal themselves.

I hope so, Diva, 'cause I'm hoping they won't stand...Pat!

Someone brought this to my attention (wonder who?)! Good job, and Mike, they haven't told you yet?

They still haven't told me who Ones Guy is, either.

Doesn't anyone know the original song here? Gad, this pacing was way off, WAY off! There are at LEAST 4 obvious errors in that song and it's pacing, you must have been drunk writing it, (and it prob. took you the longest out of all your "quantity before quality" "parodies" - wow!
Bob Seger - March 05, 2008 - Report this comment
Linda? Linda T, perchance? "Gad, this pacing was way off, WAY off!" Ummm, are you SURE you were listening to the right song when you compared?

Nice to see that you are "Still The Same" :)
