Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The only clue I'm prepared to give is that it doesn't look as bad centre aligned...
Almost never hear me swearing
Reckon uncouth terms are not for sharing
So I'll not talk 'bout the bees and birds
Even use a single.. four-letter word

Naughty words, make me groan
Up that creek, paddle's gone
Tone it down with euphemism
Say no more, naughty words

Fornication never will be mentioned
Utter filth that now off can be pensioned
Clever phrases used with discretion
Keep a rein on freedom of expression

Count swear words I have known
Realize I'm not wrong
Almost never manifested
Please me not, naughty words

So if you hear some slogan scatological
Heard on the radio and causing much dismay
I get a feeling when I'm speaking
That I should be careful what I say (what I say)

Country roads, take me home
Up to where I belong
North Dakota, mountin' momma
Take me home, country roads.

Great setup. And 5s for working "scatological" into a parody.

:-) I was originally going to write a rather self-referential parody which spelt out "acrostic", but that was only going to be eight lines; then I looked at the lyric sheet for "Country Roads" and thought that four-line verses were much more fun.

Here's a hint to help folks solve this parody's mystery ...... Don't read too far into each line.

I was just sitting at my desk at work, thinking about this song, and I had to come back and gush some more. Seriously Phil, this is brilliant...

So tell me have you always been a genius How did you do it? Incredible! That was absolutely brilliant!!! Excellent work!

Phil, this absolutely rocked! And I'm not going to pretend like I got it, either, thanks for teaching me something new! What a hoot!!
MasonR - July 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Brilliant! I laughed out loud, then I went back & saw the acrostic...and cracked up again! You've managed to parody in two dimensions! :-)

Holy Shi---OMG< I was staring at it for 10 minutes trying to figure it out....I cant beleive I missed that...brilliant....it would never work sung though lol

Well I did wonder why you were pickin' on Northdakota (not that everyone in the States DOESN'T - ha ha), but then I read some of the comments and went back to catch the words... very clever Phil!

MasonR - I've also managed to parody in N-Dimensions: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/dustyspringfield4.shtml
Merry- well it obviously had to be "North", and Carolina didn't scan :-)
Cookie-man - My mother thinks so, but she's biased
Ashkickass - I feel I should say "thanks" three times..
Billy - I was thinking about that - reckon what you'd have to do is sing it through, then when nobody gets the joke, sing it through again with a verse at a time on caption cards (with initial letters in bold)... but it would have to be a video recording rather than MP3
...and thanks to everyone else for saying such nice things :-)

Duh! I thought this was a real protest song until other comments pointed out the hidden swear bear words.

When I was going through my nasty divorce, I sent my ex a lovely poem, just to confuse her. It was all happy and light and poetic and she called me to ask what the hell that was supposed to mean. I knew she'd never be bright enough to read the first letters down, which told her where to go and what to do when she got there. Mari and I got a big kick out of fact she never got it.

SOTM Crikey! I don't know how you guys ever got the joke given the forced centering... you're much sharper than I am. Nicely done, Philbo.

(SOTM) That's what I had in my mind the whole time I was reading this: it was a tongue-in-cheek attack on Chucky G's new 'laws' on offensive parodies. Stupidly, I read the header note after finishing and re-read the whole thing with a whole new appreciation for your incredible writing skill. And Rick D, you are true evil! ;)

Pluggers would probably say something like:

I, however, am no plugger, so I would say:
Love it.
Bravo.
Or other such complimentary things.

Spaff- I'm sure this one must have been subconsciously influenced by your FCC tirade (incidentally, have you heard Eric Idle's "The FCC Song"? I think you'd enjoy it)
Claude & Pippin - my favourite is definitely the second verse...
Thanks, Jeff and Merry
