The Lyrics

Here's to Martha Stewart. Comeback of the year!
Getting sprung was always waiting for you girl
You were always one step ahead
As the tabloids did their dance

Between the Star and Globe you were pressed
Shackled with fashionable leg irons
Like a pair of orange prison pants

Martha's Bad Bark is muted in the dark
All her sweet sarcasm's slowing down
Someone left the stocks out in the rain
I don't think that she can take it
'cause it took so long to fake it
And she'll never have that phoniness again
Oh, no!

I recall the dingy prison cell
Sewing like a slave
On the ground around your knees
The mop like a foreign object in your hands
And the prison guard spraying you for fleas

relatively brief instrumental interlude played on a lonely prison blues harp by butchy inmate #788823292


There will be another show for me
For I will bling bling it
There will be another dream for me
Donald Trump will bring it
Here I will drink my gruel while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the cell wall
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
Cash is still number one

I will take this toilet brush and I will use it
I will scrub the bowls with a Renuzit
I will have the things that I desire
And my cash flow like rivers through the sky.
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of the millions
And say "It's a good thing."

extended (1:24) up-tempo instrumental played on Kazoo by Rosie O'Donnell

The pacing suffers in places; as someone who likes Martha Stewart (and have written about it), I don't agree with your assessment of her; but your parody isn't too bad, especially with a difficult original song; you made a good stab at it.

To OS Nitpicker: It's a different song. This parody is based on Donna's version. And to the parody author: It's Donna Summer, not Summers. She doesn't have an "s" on the end of her surname.

Since I've only heard the Richard Harris version (once) and not the Donna Summer one I can't vote this. The instrumental references were pretty funny.

Thx for comments. Actually this was a spur of the moment flash spoof. Wrote it in about 15 mins. after downloading the Disco version. I should have taken more time with the flow, but the song itself is very disjointed. OS, Martha is the domestic diva in the States who recently did a stretch in the big house for a white collar crime. Police - Noted on Donna Summer. If I could change it I would. As a newb here I haven't figured out any way to edit it yet. Anyhow, thanks for the comments. Cheers!
