The Lyrics

You know you've made it when people are not only doing tribute parodies to you, but to your parody habits as well.
What do I do to get you laughing?
Alone, again, naturally.
What do I do to get you singing?
The Wreck of Edmund, there, you see.

What do I do to get my mind set
on you with often-redone word?
What do I see? He's done it over.
John Barry, seems it's Screamin' Jay, preferred.

It's rad!
(It's rad!)
So rad!
(So rad!)
It's a rad, rad situation.
Parody, two-hundred-third!

It's rad!
(It's rad!)
So rad!
(So rad!)
This song he's doing over!

It always seems to me
that Barry, seems it's Screamin' Jay, preferred.

(instrumental break)

It's rad!
(It's rad!)
So rad!
(So rad!)
It's a rad, rad situation.
Parody, two-hundred-third!

It's rad!
(It's rad!)
So rad!
(So rad!)
This song he's doing over!

It always seems to me
that Barry, seems it's Screamin' Jay, preferred.

What do I do to get you laughing?
What do I do to spread the word?
What do I do when John does Hawkins?
What have I got to do?

What have I got to do?

When Barry, seems it's Screamin' Jay, preferred!

Michael, I've been sidetracked, so to speak, with intractable back problems, but I just happened to drop in today and saw this. Brightened up my day.

Humorous and deserving tribute

Great tribute! John--good luck with your back. I had a sprained Sacral Iliac a few months ago and couldn't move for a week, so I can empathize--it's no picnic (although the muscle relaxants were kind of fun...)

Intractable? Jeez, I hope not John! Sefishly, we want you, er, um... back! And the difference between 'tribulation' and 'tribute' is 'elation' (which is, I hope, nothing like a laminectomy!) And high fives to you, Michael for this thoughtful one.

Hmmm, perhaps Bernard could take a hint from this one so his parody won't get deleted next time.
