The Lyrics

All my submissions, this one not least, attest I need all the help I can get to write a half-decent parody, so ...
Is John A. Barry here somewhere?
AFW on call?
Alvin Rhodes, perhaps, within?
Is 2Eagle in the hall?

IB, are you here inside?
Is MasonR at all in sight?
Agrimorfee, got a rhyme?
Help remake this tune just right!

Malcolm Higgins, come along.
BAD, please join the band.
Spaff, don’t wait until tomorrow
if you’ve got a hand to lend.

Help me Kristoff Robertson.
Guy DiRito shed some light.
Mike Pacholek, toss a bone …
help remake this tune just right.

Red Ant, don’t let me go wrong.
I need help Phil Alexand-
er … got lines that I can borrow
to make this sound Merry-Pippin’ed?

Surely Johnny D. could spawn
a rhyme with John Jenkins-ish bite
just like Stu McArthur’s own
(to) help remake this tune just right.

I just can’t do it alone –
help remake this tune just right.

What I should've remembered to add in "Bottom Comments": These shout out-themed parodies invariably fulfll the proverbial destiny of treaders of the good-intentions-paved path intentions firstly, because even the lengthiest OSs shortfall the word/verse count needed to mention everyone deserving, and secondly, because the order of mentions actually made may by some be misconstrued as significant. Absent here, then, due only to my own culpably absent imagination, are, to name an incomplete few, are Ann Hammond, (the recently amazingly prolific) Leo Keough, Ethan Mawyer, Melanie Lee, Emiloca, Tim Hall, ... ad infinitum, and, in a category all their own, LittleCakes and Andria, commentrices par excellence. Je suis desolé, mes amis et amies. :-)

Thanks for the shout-out Stan.
For what it's worth, you've written some of the best parodies I've ever seen here.
Have a great Thanksgiving and if you don't feel like cooking, come on over...everyone's here and we've got plenty...

Thanks Stan, but it's the other way around: I'm the one who needs help from you.

Stan, thanks for the kind mention.

Nice title switch. Although you didn't ask for my help (our paths didn't cross much, so no offense taken), I wrote a simple, methodical guide to Perfect Parody Pacing, posted here: http://www.geocities.com/tommythedancingturtle/Pacing_Page_1.html. Hope it helps.

Thanks all:-)

Tommy -- Thanks. Your page is fullof good hints. And you're right, our paths haven't often crossed to date--hence your regrettable omission from mention-- tho' hopefully that will in future be corrected.
Actually, this parody and its plea are a somewhat tongue-in-cheek creation, seizing upon an OS title serendipitously subbable to support a shout-out theme. That said, said shout-outs are all fair and true.
I've been crafting parodies and pastiches of songs and other material since kidhood's rememberable horizon, about 55 years distant, and in two spurts have posted nearly 150 of tehm here since stumbling across the site mid-January of this year. One you might find amusing is itself an instruction manual of sorts, essentially on how to parodize its very self (http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/gilbertsullivan72.shtml), but be sure to note my subtending self-comment (by Me Again) re a typo that introduces into the parody a pacing glitch, ironically enough in the very line that _deals_ with pacing issues. :-)

I agree with John Barry, but appreciate being included in this prestigious group.

Sorry to have taken this seriously. Please don't take seriously any of my many parodies about boffing sheep :-) As mentioned, our paths haven't crossed much, so didn't realize you were such an experienced, erudite, and accomplished parodist, who hardly needs my or anyone's else help. In that light, this is a fine tribute to many excellent writers, and that comes from one who's been rather prolific in the tribute genre. Loved the MG parody and left you a comment there.

Tommy - Thanks, and no problem. As I said, your pacing advice page really is a good one. Re sheep-boffing, I don't recall writing any parodies such ovine enjoyment, but I did do one about coupling with cows -- http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/elvispresley157.shtml -- and another about getting it on with goats (sort of) - http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/martyrobbins18.shtml. :-)

Sounds like between us, we've got the farm covered :) Gotta check out now, but will get your goat eventually (hmm, better rephrase that), and I'm sure I'll be cowed by them both.

Right now we're even, two current plugs each: yours above, and I left you one at your Ray Charles classical gas (Rhythm & Browns?), and another at your comment at my MG parody, which was plugged at your MG parody. So rather than plug a third song here, I'll repeat the sheep-boffer plug, one of many, but a de riguer OS: http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/donmclean119.shtml

I suppose eventually we'll each have read all of the others', but the guided-tour bit is cool :) BTW, did you read the true story recently about the guy who made pr0n videos of men with cows (real ones, not Pamela Anderson, or the human cows I parodied in.... n/m, we'll get to that another time)? I guess the cow liked men 'cuz she wouldn't take any bull.

All hail to those AmIRight parody artists !!!!! I shall bow down before thee, Stan Hall! I love AmIRight related parodies. Better yet, this is a great idea for the AmIRight anthem. Don't forget about ChuckyG!

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
