The Lyrics

Il Divo is a music group formed in Europe, 4 impeccably dressed and handsome men in their twenties & thirties who sing arias and other classical music with a pop sensibility (not to mention covers of Frank Sinatra and Toni Braxton). Sort of like N'Sync for soccer moms. The kind of music you'd expect to hear in Starbucks or the perfume aisle at Nordstrom's. The name of the group means "the male diva" in Italian. If you don't believe me, see www.ildivo.com
I tell you what's
In music sales
Been on Oprah
Attracts females
I say it's all
Payola scales
Who are these men?
They're Il Divo!
Who are these men?
They're Il Divo!

They're big stars now
Hot video
I wonder if
They are homos?
Who are these men?
They're Il Divo!
Who are these men?
D-I-V-O!

Signores, all
In fancy suit
Confound the critics
Their points are moot
Who are these men?
They're Il Divo!
Pop opera men!
D-I-V-O!
Pop opera men?
They're Il Divo!

We all know there are opera men
Andrea Bocelli could do it
Tapes in the can
Mike Bolton couldn't do it
Let's put it on the tape
Peel them a grape
They just do what 3 Tenors did do
Self made men
And a monkey can sing like you

Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!) Who are these men? (They're Il Divo!)

The hair's so neat (D-I-V-O!)--Career complete!--(D-I-V-O!)--They look so sweet (D-I-V-O!)--I can't compete!--(D-I-V-O!)--Now tout en suite--(D-I-V-O!)--Keep to the beat! (D-I-V-O!)--Now hear me bleat! (D-I-V-O!)--4 pairs of feet (D-I-V-O!)

They're so MACHO!

Great job, Agri....555

My abiding thought about Il Divo...make it 5 bullets in case I miss one....this parody was fab! 555
Johnny D - August 17, 2005 - Report this comment
555 ... and remember, "Devo" spelled sideways is "Dove".

I wanted so much for someone to make fun of these preening dolts! And if you think they're bad, G4 are worse. One of the guys looks like Paddy from Emmerdale (pig-like, with Mr. Incredible hair), and they murder classic songs in faux-operatic styles. They're going to murder one of Elvis Presley's this Saturday on ITV1's 'Elvis Mania' show. You have been warned!

It's really annoying now, whenever I tell someone my favorite band is DEVO, they think it's Il Divo... ugh... 555

Thanks for nothing, Mr. Ones Man.

To tell you the truth I'm a little lost Aggy. If it wasn't for your introduction I would have no idea whatsoever what you were on about. I never heard of Il Divo before... Sorry buddy.

(Artistry) I'm afraid Matty and I are in the same group. I have never heard of Il Divo, and if you didn't tell me, I would've been even more confused. I'm sorry this is the case.
Porfle Popnecker - February 03, 2012 - Report this comment
I never heard of them either, but I liked the parody anyway!

(Artistry) Many have tried popera, few have succeeded. Nice sendup of the male divas.
bobpiecheese - February 14, 2012 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Well, all I can say is I'm in the same group as Matthias and B-man. Though that's kind of business as usual for me.

Popera? I like the sound of that. I don't know, I love Opera, haven't heard of Il Divo but now I'm curious. I am a music fanatic, so thanks for introducing me to a new group. . .not all that funny, but then like Matty's parody, some parodies topics aren't really meant to be LOL
