"Tape It, Dude, to Fix It"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

All that's broken is mended easily,
Such as night lights; you needn't use glue.
Don't worry if the mend is not a tight fit,
Here's all you have got to do:

Say you damaged your coffee creamer
(Dropped it hard on the ground),
And the spout's disarranged
(The broken piece is found).
Take that piece and then place it
On firm, the spout; in turn the spout's
Returned to whence it came.

You'll think of a fowl flyway
With the cute design.
Tape it, dude, to fix it, every time.

That design is a cute little ducky,
Who's an eponym for this tape kind.
Something falls, mend the pieces, no sorrow--
This tape's meant to bind.

All your busted things, you can keep 'em
(How they look, you don't care).
For that foot-kicked-in door
(Expeditious repair).
There's nothing you can't be seamin',
Like that trunk that's cracked, that bunk that's cracked,
That drum that's cracked, and more.

You fouled up on the highway,
Hit pole with "yield" sign.
Tape it, dude, to fix it, bumper's fine.

Tape it, dude, to fix it,
Tape it, dude, to fix it,
Tape it; that'll fix it, every time.

The title is a classic, and it kept going from there. Let me give you a five -- oops, I dropped it! Now it's broken! However will we fix it?

Loved your 'little ducky' description of duct tape. This describes my ruck repairs perfectly.

Funny that duct tape works pretty well on everything except ductwork.

the title hooked me JAB, and you can add "eponym" to the long list of words that have only ever been used once in a parody, taking you even further into the lead of such scalp-claimers (daylight second) - 555

Really enjoyed this one JB :)

DKTOS. REALLY good parody, but, if I were you, I'd be careful using the word "seamin'." Oh, and to dee range, I didn't know you could repair "rucks." *uncontainable snickering*
