The Lyrics

DKTOS? Click HERE for a Youtube soundtrack of "Lido Shuffle" as performed by Boz Scaggs.

A few months ago, Meridoc, of the well known parody team of Merry and Pippin, requested that I do a parody about "Vito" to the lyrics of "Lido". So Merry, if you're watching, this is for you.

Vito took a boat,
Got out before he's whacked.
Don Ciccio so pissed,
He don't cut no slack.

Left Corleone far,
'Board the "Des Moines Star", New York next stop.
The mob so tough,
With scabs and scandal ripe to pop.
He's no shy clown,
Vito talked the money down,
Took his toll,
Next day one more mob guy gets it.
One less Don so he's rid it.

One less they owed.

Vito, whoa-oh-oh-oh...
Fredo and Sonny, Mike ran the show,
Fredo be latent when his mother go.
Vito, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh...
Get dead, cross the mob and you'll get it,
One head shot an' fuh-get it.
Turf war, soon explode.

Vito he's runnin'
Makin' great big funds in stacks of bank notes.
Sayin', "snow in lines won't go it",
Drugs he won't promote.
Always makin' with the refined,
Gettin' out a quart of wine, Cuban's to smoke.
Contract one more hit to get through it,
The point is just don't do it,
One more that gets blowed.

Vito, whoa-oh-oh-oh...
He's got the money, he runs the show,
Vito's negatin' each and ev'ry foe.
Vito, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh...
Runs the mob; he can't quit it,
Those who plot will so get it,
Gun war is their code.

[Instrumental Interlude]

Vito, whoa-oh-oh-oh...
Fredo and Sonny, Mike stole the show.
Fredo gets latent, when his mother goes,
Vito, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh...

[Fade]

Ah! As I was second to vote, I note an extra little piece of the one guy puzzle - that he sympathises with the Corleones! "Get dead, cross the mob and you'll get it, One head shot an' fuh-get it", mehehehh! Love it! Good job guy!

Pip, This is one-derful. I haven't gotten a one vote in a very long time. I was beginning to think I'd done something wrong. Maybe they have issues with Merry since it was her that asked me to do this one.

Glad you've enjoyed yet another mob rendition. Thanks for your comment old friend.

That you did Merry. It was my pleasure to do thy bidding on this number. Thanks for giving me the idea. It took me a while to get around to it but it was a fun write. And thanks for your comment.

Very good parody. Clever substitutions, particularly owed/explode/blowed/code for road.

JJ - Thanks - It is just fortunate that there are a lot of words to choose from that rhyme end with "ode".

Alvin - Nothing is worse than a jonesing parody author. So happy to give you a fix. Thanks buddy.
