Parody Song Title:

"Outsource, Outsource"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

"Kharma," means, among other things, "the good or bad emanations felt to be generated by someone or something." The Vedas are the Hindu sacred writings. "Yon'" is short for "yoni," the symbol of Shakti, the female principle of generative power in Shaktism. Shakti is the wife of Shiva. "Lingam" is a symbol of Shiva and male generative power. Shiva is the multiarmed member of the Hindu triumvirate whose other members are Brahma and Vishnu.
Outsource, Outsource

Brahma and Vishnu
Aren't beavin' my day.
I want to seek karma* in it: new yon'*, new yon'.
A Vedas-banned* chute, I'm longing to spray.
That would be oh so cathartic—flume force, flume force.

I work for a sh*tty outsourcer; we never sleep.
I call to make folks pay bills; I'm kind of a creep.

No diddling; I'm blue—sheltered from a lay.
I push brand names for artful firms that now outsource.
They no longer make stuff there; they've offshored customer care
They're turning to outsource, outsource.

Outsource, I'm bored.
I would like to shake up a yoni and lever deep
And get my plumbing done, pop out some "mist," give lingam* thrills,
Make nuts fecund.

But I've got the "blues". . .swelter in Bombay.
I'm lucky I've got a hands-free headset—I hold grew pork.
So I Shiva-shake* it bare while I service someone's hardware.

It's up and spumes—spout source, spout source.

Fantastic. Of all my pet peeves, listening to someone with an un-compehendable accent try to solve my problems is just about #1 on my list High 5's

This is great--and after spending endless hours on the phone with Verizon's sad excuse for customer service from half a world away--I'd say it rings true! 555, and thank you for holding. One of our trained technicians will be with you shortly....

They're not in Bombay, but Banglore (see my "Oh India, the Beautiful) John, I wanted to let you know that Paul Robinson will be at Espresso tomorrow. (coming up from LA) and will probably perform with us. Might motivate you to take the plunge. And like yourself, he's a witty, nice guy. That place is becoming Amiright, West Coast.

JB, I need to ask you a favor..... I have a parody that I would like to submit for the next posting, but I just now discovered that it's very similar to one you wrote. You wrote a parody of "Seventy-Six Trombones" called "Stented, He's Fixed", about Dick Cheney, and you use the word "thrombosis". I just wrote a parody of "Seventy-Six Trombones" called "Vice President Cheney's Theme", and it's about Cheney's health, his stents, and it uses the word "thromboses" a number of times. It is actually very different in tone and wording from yours, JB, but these similarities are such that I wanted to go on record asking your permission first so nobody could accuse me of plagiarism. If you wish, I could either (a) email you a copy first, or (b) post a thread on the messageboard with the parody before I submit it so you can say yea-or-nay. Please advise, thanks!

JB, this is doubly embarassing for me, since I apparently had forgotten about your parody of "Seventy-Six Trombones" so completely that I also forgot that back in August I voted it a 5-5-5 and posted my comment "Trouble In Crawford Texas!" on it! Boy, do I feel like a doofus now. I'd still like to post my version...but only if it's OK with you.

JD--go for it, and no need to ask. Rick, I might be free--will let you know, thanks.

JB--Thanks! I posted a similar request for your O.K. over on the comments-section of "Stented, He's Fixed" ..... if you'd like to post a brief comment there as well saying that it's O.K. with you, that would reassure readers who look at both of our parodies...but that's up to you, I'm just delighted that you've given me your O.K. --- thanks!
