The Lyrics

had a part...in a famous play
and he swore...he'd do the film one day
and it came to pass...it worked that way
then hollywood was home

he played a hood...who rode into town
with some jerks...spreading terror 'round
they said brando...held the fans spellbound
they found him frisky and wild

the critics said, brando...he's an eyeful...(such an eyeful)
and he reads lines...peachy keen...(such an eyeful)
yeah, that's why...he sets the flavor...of the scene
doo...doo-doo-doo-doo...doo doo doo doo

brando...rose to great acclaim
on the waterfront...he really made his name
an oscar...to seal his fame
what a man that brando was

his name...in the spotlight, stayed
cause his gift...was too strong to fade
but he made it plain...it'd be his way
or else he'd just go home

the critics said, brando...he's an eyeful...(such an eyeful)
and he reads lines...peachy keen...(such an eyeful)
yeah, that's why...he sets the flavor...of the scene
doo...doo-doo-doo-doo...doo doo doo doo

yeah, brando used to catch our eyes
as he wove his scripted stories
you could feel emotion start to rise
in his searing allegory
but when that oscar was refused
lord, they vilified the man
and brando said, you just...don't understand
doo...doo doo doo doo...doo doo doo doo

at last...he was winding down
brando died, where he'd worn his crown
we love the man...though, not around...
his films go on today

the critics said, brando...he's an eyeful...(such an eyeful)
and he reads lines...peachy keen...(such an eyeful)
yeah, that's why...he sets the flavor...of the scene
doo...doo-doo-doo-doo...doo doo doo doo

Very nice and a good match with the OS.... if you concentrated on Mutiny on the Bounty, you could have changed your hook to (such a bligh-ful!)... or not...

Brando is cool like dis parody. Not too funny but entertaining nonetheless. 5's It might even be funnier if someone were to try to sing it with cotton balls in their mouth like he did with the God Father.
