The Lyrics

There does exist a nudist colony near Lake Wazamonie in Wisconsin. An article in a local paper about the site was the inspiration for this work.
Late one Friday morning I decided to go out on a dare
There must have been a quirk of fate blowing around in the dirty air
The thought just made me shiver; was I nervous, or was I just cold?
I was contemplating to check out Lake Wazamonie; 'twas my goal
I'll be bare, I'll be bare, I will be bare
Perusing my road atlas—will I make it today?
I'll be a great sunbather in au naturel way
I want to feel like I'm in a new avant-garde play
There'll be no protection from the sun's rays
I'll be bare, I'll be bare, I will be bare
There must be someone at Lake Wazamonie
Who can show me all there is to see
Nude bathing ethics and courtesy
Which is the best sunscreen, and what else I can see
Wanna see, gotta see nudity
I'll be bare, I'll be bare, I will be bare
I'm all set to go
Early morning tomorrow
By tomorrow!
Hello dude HELLO! Don't fret, just let it go
You're with friends, dude, don't you know
Let it slide, let it slide
Undress down to your socks, there's no need to wear a box
No one has the chicken pox, come inside, come inside
Clothes off, clothes off, clothes off, let it show!
Hey, there's Shirley Muggs, and she's shooing away the bugs
She's got a pair of binoculars, nudge-nudge, nudge-nudge!
Just you follow me, there's no need for modesty
There's more people here to see, follow me, follow me
Clothes off, clothes off, clothes off, let it show!
Hey, there's Madman Bill with his live-in lover Jill
She's got the looks that kill, what a thrill, what a thrill
You want to sit and chat? There's no problem with that
Here is your own personal mat; sit on that, not my hat
Clothes off , clothes off, clothes off, let it show!
Welcome back, dear friends, to our party with bare ends
It'll crack your camera lens, come inside, come inside
Look, there's Mary Glass, she's standing in the grass
It comes up to her ankles, what a blast, what a blast
Come on, dudes, the fun's about to start
Volleyball, and whatever's in your heart
Rest assured, the weather looks good for surf
Come dressed as you were the moment of your birth!
You gotta let it show, or you gotta go
You gotta let 'em show, or you gotta go
Not a cloud in the skies, we're cooking burgers and fries
The meat's been tenderized, pretty wise, pretty wise!
Come on dudes, the fun's about to start!
Volleyball, and whatever's in your heart!
You gotta let 'em show, or you gotta go
You gotta let 'em show, and do it with soul
Here comes Martin Bean, he's wearing Afro-Sheen
And he owns a limousine, pretty keen, pretty keen!
Out back near the sand, we got ourselves a band
They're the coolest in the land--- I'm The Man! I'm The Man!
Clothes off, clothes off, clothes off, let it show!
Heliotherapy's cool, and I am nobody's fool
I feel like I'm in a school without rule, without rule
I'd like it to be known—let the naturists have a home
A mailing zone, and a phone—all their own, all their own
Gotta let 'em show, gotta let 'em show, even in the snow!
LET 'EM SHOW!!!!!!!! Copyright, 1988, Agrimorfee

These are your first submissions and I'm already impressed. I was going to do this song because no one else has. I'm high fivin' you just for the attempt, plus it's pretty good. - January 12, 2004 - Report this comment
DKTOS, but of the 17K parodies on this site, this is the only one that uses "nudist" in the title. And so, even though the PC term isn't "nudist colony" (it's "nude resort"), you still get bonus points. Also, I like the explanation of "Agrimorfee" in your bio.

Actually, the preferred term is "Naturist". Mari and I play at one of those sometimes. - January 12, 2004 - Report this comment
You can be even more inclusive and go with "clothing optional."
Agrimorfee - January 13, 2004 - Report this comment
You will note "naturist" shows up in the 4th line from the end. I did try to be a little PC where PC was due. ;)

This is great, nudge-nudge, nudge-nudge

Not too sure of the original song but this looked like a very extensive parody project and you pulled it off very well to somewhat of a difficult topic.

Saw Matty's comment and had to read it myself. I am not sure where you found this song, but wow Agri, was this a sign of what was to come from you back when you wrote it. . .EXTREMELY impressive.

* I never nude the OS, but I did give a listen to the Youtube link and read your parody to it. Wow what a piece of work this must have been, Ag. It must have been nearly unBAREable to write. High 5's.

On first impression, your parody was extremely hard to follow. I got lost. I thought I found it again, but am I mistaken or do you have more lyrics than the OS? And why didn't you provide instrumental breaks? C'mon, you know better than this! I won't rate it yet; I'll come back later for another go-round.

Okay, apparently you're stretching this parody over two videos, Part 1 and Part 2 of the same song. It seems, though, that your beginning doesn't match their beginning. Did you leave something out? I also see you did this way back in 2003, so maybe back then you didn't know better!

Okay, my bad--I think I clicked on the second video first! Okay: good idea, nice imagery, a lot of work...but it didn't turn me on. 5-4-5.

(ABC5) Well, your layout made it a bit hard to follow, but bloody hell this one was good for being written back in the '80s. And quite the, uh, interesting topic. 555

ABC5(N) After seeing the title, I was expecting something a little more naughty, but great job nonetheless...555!!!
Stuart McArthur - August 19, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) some very nice rhyming in this Ag, and I can identify with the whole story big time because I also wake up most days and think "I've gotta see nudity" - usually there's a Kate Winslet movie somewhere on cable though, so the pain eases quickly - 555

I couldn't find the second video, but from what I saw of the first this was really good. Didn't think I knew TOS, but the part that starts "Hello dude HELLO!" sounds very familiar. Excellent rhyming, funny topic.

Hey all, but particular Melanie--I wrote this back in 1988...entered it into a computer a few years later, then when I camne to Amiright, i just cut and pasted it here before I knew proper Amiright netiquette. Sorry for the difficulty on the videos...I thought more people would be familiar with the 2nd half of the song.

Yeah the videos made this difficult, as did the formatting. I also just had overall trouble scanning this. This original song is not bad, per say, but I do wonder why it's so drawn out unnecessarily, It's a funny idea Agrimorfee, but you've grown a lot since this, your pacing fits on a technical scale, but the scanning was tough for me here. Too bad the original band insisted on really pointless keyboard/midi sounding instrumental spots, it really messed with their overall sound, thanks for introducing me to yet another new band though.

If you don't like long keyboard solos, ELP is not for you. :)
