The Lyrics

In the spirit of the Wild Man's Chalupa Awards, here is my tribute to my favorite Amiright song titles. Who's Number 1? No peeking at the bottom! (Unless J-Lo walks in.)
The legend lives on from old Worcester on down
of the website of music that's goofy.
Of Chucky, it's said, lots of songs have been read
and they're posted right here 'cause they're spoofy.

The very best names in these parody games
I salute these titles with a fever
like laughter flies in with the "Cheese Fries Comin',"
by the Tampa Bay Wild Man and Diva!

In this parody party, with "Arrest These Swarthy
Gentlemen," Mehli puts down the hammer.
And we get our Phil, Alexander is still
upset with "Another Bastard Spammer!"

To be as good, my goal, as "A Car Full of Holes"
by the guy who says, "My Name Is Kenny."
Do you know Qusay, that he got killed today?
Damn good titles like that, Guy's got many!

Sox fan John Pyro is stewed, Grady must go.
Hearing that song is making us all nuts.
And Spaff brings the heat, saying, "Give Me the DEET"
and Claude4Prez says, "I'll Get the Walnuts!"

The story will spill about weird Kim Jong Il
and East Asian hilarity begins
though I can't pace right that Korean delight
ditty name written by Malcolm Higgins!

For an Aerosmith song, you won't have to wait long
but my politics I won't be masking.
"Armageddon" might come, 'cause Bush is really dumb
and I wrote, "I Don't Want That Bush As King!"

To "YMCA," I wrote "No JFK"
'cause Bush has our land over a barrel.
But try as I might, I just can't seem to write
up "The Grandson of John F. Fitzgerald!"

Does anyone know those songs, Mike Florio's
about undergarments they call "Depends"?
And the "Snoop George B" song by the great William Tong
means the curtain on Dubya now descends!

The authors of "Bust In the Wind," well, they just
once again prove that they are not slippin'.
And all that we lack is the genders of fact
of the hobbitses Merry and Pippin!

Keeping up with the boys, "Say Bleu, Say Brie" by Royce
Rick's "Acrosstic Universe" is comin'.
And I agree, son, with the great Ghetto John:
"I'm Gonna Hurl at the Sight of This Woman!"

Young Bill Florio, he did give it a go
with a "White Album" tune that's a honey:
"Everybody," he'll rant, "has got something they want,"
says Bill, "and it is mostly my money!"

Be careful, you'll have to give humongous laughs
for a song a new rule would have periled.
Johnny might not have done my title number one:
"The Erection of Edmund Fitzgerald!"

The legend lives on from old Worcester on down
of the website of music that's goofy.
Of Chucky, it's said, lots of songs have been read
and they're posted right here 'cause they're spoofy.
I wanted to work in "Britney Ain't No Virgin," but there just wasn't enough verses in the song (13 plus the first repeated at the end). Besides, at the rate she's going, Britney might force STG to change his initials to STD.

Good job, Michael, and thank you.

"The Erection of Edmund Fitzgerald" is located here ( I know, I know, that comment was below-the-belt ):

Acrostic Universe was not only one I was proud of, but it's first alphabetically in the Beatle songs. Thanks, Michael

Michael--I'm delighted that I flittered across your mind. I'm not the writing machine that you are-way past me.

GJ Michael! I really enjoy Amiright parodies. :-D

Nice job, Pach! Thanks for the mention (but it's "Bust Has Been Thinned..."). ;-)
Chris - February 27, 2004 - Report this comment
Great job on the parody! I read your parody, now how bout you read mine? "Come On Over" to the Shania Twain section and "Check It Out"
Jay W - February 28, 2004 - Report this comment
I really have to agree with you on 'The Erection of Edmund Fitzgerald". It's hard to top that.
John Jenkins - February 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Actually, I think that Johnny D's (and maybe anybody's) best title is "Tall Scary Heels and Leather," but it probably did not quite fit into Michael's parody.

Thanks for your mentioning me and Wild Man! Great Job on this parody! I miss Wild Man's awards too! Thanks for remembering us!

Must admit Michael, you chose some of the very best titles out here for this parody.
Joelle - February 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Great job!

A close second for all-time song titles occurs to me upon reflection: William Tong's "Weird Brutes Were Played by Walken."

Damn, Michaelopedia, I'm sorry it took me so long to spot this "Wreck." Quite a tribute to one'n'all. And thanks for the plug.
