The Lyrics

Sometimes all you have to do is yank and diddle just a few of the original song's words, and up springs a hard-to-beat parody...
(instrumental intro)

(Narrated:)

The devil went down to Georgia
He was lookin' for a pole to steal
He was in a bind cause he was way behind
And he was willin' to make a deal

When he came across this young man
Sawin' on his diddle and yankin' it hard
And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump
And said, "Boy, you should lube with lard

I guess you didn't know it
But I'm a diddle yanker too
And if you'd care to take a dare
I'll make a bet with you

Now you yanked pretty good diddle, boy
But give the devil his due
I bet a Trojan of gold against your pole
'Cause I think I'm better than you"

The boy said "My name's Johnny
And it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret,
'Cause I'm the best that's ever been!"

(Sung:)

Johnny lubricate your pole
And yank your diddle hard
'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia
And the devil deals the cards

And if you win, you get this shiny Trojan made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your pole!

(fiddle break)

(Narrated:)

The devil opened up his pants
And he said "I'll start this show"
And fire flew from his evil rod
As he Vaselined his pole

And he pulled his claws across his thing
And he made an evil hiss
A sexy succubus joined in,
Gave the devil a firey kiss...

(demonic diddle break)

(Narrated:)

When the devil finished, Johnny said,
"Well you're pretty good, old son.
But sit down on your succubus
And let me show you how it's done!"

(Sung:)

Fire up your fountain, Johnny son!
Devil is afraid of your rising gun!
Chicken in your right hand gettin' a choke!
Wild man are you son, that's no joke!

(angelic diddle break)

(Narrated:)

The devil bowed his head
Because he knew that he'd been beat
And he laid that golden Trojan down
And bowed to Johnny's meat

Johnny said "Devil, go on back to hell,
Now you've paid up and been thanked.
I done told you once, you son of a bitch,
I'm the best that's ever wanked!"

(Sung:)

Fire up your fountain, Johnny son!
Devil is afraid of your rising gun!
Chicken in your right hand gettin' a choke!
Wild man are you son, that's no joke!

(fiddle break and instrumental ending)

It is rare, even among this group, that one comes across the phrase "ANGELIC DIDDLE BREAK." That ALONE in this parody should earn you eternal banishment to the hottest circle of heck!!! As it is, it will instead earn you yet another three fives (which is ironic, considering that "three-five" is a military slang term for the, um, activity you have described in this song). I agree with ashkicksass on the best line. I just about fell over! Way to whip out another good one!! :D

alvin rhodes: Takes one to know one, alvin, so do you - thanks.
Meriadoc: You got that right, hairy-footed one. I thank you from the bottom of my rosin box.
Stray Pooch: Well, if we extend Anselm's ontological proof of the existence of a Supreme Being to include song parodies, Boggle, and general phrase-turning, then it would logically follow that the most perfectly pure "diddle break" would be the "angelic". Glad you like how it was whipped out!
Peregrin: Good Heavens, no! 0:-)
Michael McVey: Da! Er, nyet! Ah, spasibo!
Cookie-man: Thanks for three 5's way up on angel schwings, er, I mean wings!

THREE-FIVE AS MILITARY SLANG: Little Johnny (no relation, I'm sure - heh heh) is having trouble getting pottie trained. Dad, a First Sergeant says "I'll train him military style - by the numbers!" So he takes Johnny into the bathroom and explains "Son, piddling is an eight-count exercise: On the count of "one" you pull down your zipper. On "two" you pull it out. On "three" you roll back the foreskin. On "four" you take your whiz. On "five" you shake it and roll the foreskin back up. On "six" you place it back in your pants. On "seven" you pull up your zipper. On "eight" you wash your hands. Got it?" "Yes, Daddy," says Little Johnny excitedly. They practice a few times to be sure Johnny has it and then Little Johnny goes out to play. An hour later he comes in all excited to do his eight-count exercise. He comes back down and says "Mommy, I did it!" A half hour later he goes through the exercise again. Fifteen minutes later he is back upstairs and Mom is starting to wonder. She says to Dad "Johnny sure is spending a lot of time in the bathroom!" Dad decides to investigate. Sure enough, fifteen minutes later Johnny is in again. Dad peeks inside the bathroom to see what Little Johnny is up to. As he watches, Johnny counts out the exercise: "One. Two. Three Five, Three Five, Three Five, Three Five, . . . Now aren't you sorry you asked?

How did I miss this? Purely (a-hem, maybe not so pure) comic genius-like, although "angelic diddle break" is going to reserve you two spots. One would be the 7th layer of hell. The other would be my list of people not to talk to ever again.

BTW, Emi, for a description of the Tibetan Buddhist term " Loka ", I recommend the following discussion of " The Tibetan Book Of The Dead " (scroll down to the section titled "The second bardo"):

I really have no interest in Tibetan Buddhism, not being a resident of Tibet, being Buddhist, or being weird.
