The Lyrics

Well I'm runnin' to the shop
Tryin' to purchase some pop
I got chips and salsa on my mind
Standing in the check out
Think my brains'll fall out
Lookin' at Enquirer headlines

Make it sleazy, make it sleazy
Don't add a modicum of truth
Keep it hazy
Writin' up Baretta's case
Speculate on Michael's face
And add some men from outer space
And make it sleazy

Well I'm lookin' at a tabloid in local 7-leven
And such a fine sight to see
It's Elvis my Lord
In a flat-bed Ford
Drivin' out to join the Queen for tea

C'mon Oprah - she's a doper?
I gotta know if it's in print
Must be the truth, huh?
We can read the latest cure
For our acne, cancer, AIDS and more
Just buy this herb from Singapore
Won't make you queasy

Well Madonna's seen a ghost
Lurking by her bedpost
Got a liposuction on her 'hind
Britney's looking horrid
Lipstick on her forehead
Can't 'make up her mind'

Make it sleazy, make it sleazy
"Made love with the other Monkees"
So says Davy....
C'mon headlines, meet those deadlines
I gotta know the latest scoop
And who it maligns

Oh they make it sleeeeeeazy
They gotta keep it sleeeeeeazy

"Got a liposuction on her 'hind" was my favorite. Great job.

Hmmm... and I told all those people I paid off to vote HIGH. (j/k) Looks like the '2 guy' (cousin of the '1 guy'?) hit us half a dozen times! Ha!

Yup, another wayward voting file, I thought these were all gone too, looks like time for me to make another pass through the voting system.. There were only 10 old votes, and the score appears to have jumped by about 0.3 places when I got them removed, so most excellent job on the parody according to the votes.

This problem is worse than I originally thought.. the old voting files were indeed removed. This parody accidently got the same filename as an older parody, due to a coding problem. I know how to fix the bug to prevent this in the future, but untangling the bad files is probably going to take a few hours.

Thank you ChuckyG for fixing that - on behalf of Meriadoc and myself!

I was sorry to see it drop so many places now that things are straightened out, but it looks like you have a couple of other parodies in the top ten today, congrats!

Fantastic! 555! I was expecting something else based on the title, but your take was much better than mine. Favorite was the Elvis verse!
