Song Parodies -> "Do Liberals Ever Make Use Of Their Minds?"

Original Song Title:

"Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind"

 (MP3)
Original Performer:

Lovin Spoonful

Parody Song Title:

"Do Liberals Ever Make Use Of Their Minds?"

Parody Written by:

Linda Terhune

The Lyrics

It was either this parody theme and title or the theme and title "Are the liberals competing to win the top slime?" --- both for the same tune.... Gosh, but there are so many ethically challenged liberals to write about and so little time to write parodies about them!
Do liberals ever make use of their minds?
Use some real logic and leave their pride behind
It's not easy for them and harder to find
But do they ever try to just use their minds

Do the liberals even try to decide?
To wish for the country's good - let their pride ride
It may look too good for the other one's side
So they always vote party lines to decide

When those bills come before your eyes, great for the country
Solutions that benefit all the people
And you can see that this plan is a good one
Your pride gets stronger still and vote it down to kill
Too partisan and prideful to care, you vote no

And then you justify betraying us all....

Sometimes you really dig a law the moment you hear it
And then you get distracted by the good it will do
Then recall brownie points the right cannot use
And know it's best to sacrifice people than lose

And then attack the bill, deflect and justify....

Linda, the pacing is off...work on that....otherwise a good parody.

There are right-wingers who can write good parodies. Maybe someday Linda will join them. I don't know what song you were parodying here, but it doesn't match anything the Spoonful ever did. This one does: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/thelovinspoonful7.shtml

Michael, have you joined the right wing? From your comment and then the song, it looks like it. : )

In the immortal words of Maya Wilkes, Pat... "Oh, HELL no!" I just appreciate the talents put forth by John Jenkins, Guy DiRito (whatever happened to him, anyway?) and the occasional Florio brother.

Adagio - I will, (I did this one by memory, the tune, and I am tone death so it comes harder for that part), and thank you... ====== Michael Pacholek - Oh yes, Mr. parody king music historian photo memory man comes forth with yet another sarcasm disguised as a musical fact. When you said that you did not know the song, either you lied, played stupid or you are stupid. The title of the original song could have given you a clue. I think you knew the song, you are just being an arsehole like you normally are. In every post, in every parody I write, the same old sarcastic, infantile, egocentric crap, (I personally think you are threatened by me and that’s why you are consistently an arsehole " you know I can figure you out, you know I know how full of hot air you are). Frankly, I do not understand why you do not understand after all this time, that if I were to pick one person from this site who has ever commented on a parody I wrote or a comment I made, to take advice from, you would not even be considered. You strut your stuff, pretend you are a big man and a professional who can direct other to the path of righteousness via you, you are sarcastic, your parodies and so redundant with such a low level vocabulary that they are nearly all written in a forth grade level. You are egocentric, self-absorbed, have a lot of parodies that have a lot of complete and utter lies, (there again, stupid, pretending to be stupid or sarcastic are the only options). You are merely a pathetic trifling moron whose world revolves around a web site! You are king to those who worship your songs, (the few who are even more immature and moronic), the writers that you think are better writers than you are (and so kiss their arses in all kinds of ways and all kinds of places), and then there are those who you know are smarter than you and who you are threatened by, like me! I really thought I had made it abundantly clear that your option was not what I would call a ‘sought after gem’, so I suppose in your fear you must respond to everything I do… gotta give the crazy king his esteem boost to get him though the day

poor pacing combined with a sad, pathetic state-of-mind = poisonous drivel. 2-1-1

Linda, use the "search" function key to not only find out about duplicate titles but to get examples of how others arranged the parody/OS.
Michael, you do not understand what I was talking about and 'optional' you are not to judge a parody about what goes on in your mind. Other than the pacing, I think it is an excellent parody!

This sucks - just more (psycho) babble on your part - why should we be surprised. Mr. Pacholek's comments are echoed. Please talk to your talking points coordinator at the Heritage Foundation and have them send someone to the site who can write and who can be funny. Your ultra right-wing, jesus freak, fascist rants are dull. REPUBLICAN CULTURE OF CORRUPTION

It's true that the pacing needed more work (matching the syllables to the original) ... BUT ... the sentiment was exactly right. Moreover, except for the profane language you used, you were 100% right about the moronic, ultra-liberal Pacholek. What an astonishing loser he is! I hope that some day he matures enough to realize that true wisdom lies in conservatism.

It's true that the pacing needed a lot more work (try matching the syllables to the original) ... AND ... the sentiment also was not exactly right. Moreover, except for the profane language you used, you were 100% right about the moronic, ultra-Conservative Terhune. What an astonishing loser she is! I hope that some day she matures enough to realize that true wisdom lies in liberalism.

optional and 2LD4U -- I was so hoping I could impress the kind of people you two are and I am so bummed out about your responses. Your class, style, your intelligence, the contributions you make, (like these fine examples here on this page), all show me how remarkable you both are. I am surely grieving over your opinions of me -- loser suckers!
Linda - October 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Lurker, thanks for your comments, but in my defense, I did use 'arse" which toned it down a bit, I thought... I will do the syllable thing, and again, thanks!

Yes, we've collectively decided that you're a right wing fascist dumbass.

Vic, thanks - couldn't make last week's "Meeting of the Liberal Minds" but I'm glad you got my proxy. Hopefully, we're progressing on the Rove indictment but while he lied under oath, we may hit a stumbling block because his actions didn't involve in intern. I think at next week's meeting we ought to address the "Delusional President" talking points - given the fact that the selected president claims god told him to go into Afghanistan, that God told him to get Saddam and now god has instructed him to make peace in the Middle East. Thanks again, IL

Carol -- -- Hypocritical to the core - 'double standards' her middle name... but odd how she wonders that I care about what she has to say, as her anti-right, anti-bush attempts at parody writing sounds as if she may graduate from the forth grade soon.

""""" ----- --- --- --- Oh dear, how harsh, (and hypocritical AGAIN " did you not read your comment before my response, or are you too much of a raging rig driver’s mouthed to pay attention? ---- you dish it out, you can darn well learn to take it or just stay away from anything I write, I don’t want you here anyway; you couldn’t be honest if you tried so hard you even gave up your trucker’s escort service and took the advertising sign off your front lawn. ------ --- --- -- In addition, need I remind you that you in fact “returned like a bad penny”- since clearly you returned to a page with one of my parodies on it"duh! --- *NICE TRY, (but dim nevertheless). -- As far as “nasty” goes, I think you took that award long ago! One only has to read the comments from you in most of the parodies I have written to see you are an out-of-control, full of rage, spiteful, (and darn indecent, I may add), fraud. A victim mentality in an ace manipulator’s body who has a tarnished trucker tongue and is not afraid to use it; over and over again and again… Your clever little mind must have told me to “suck” something, get laid somehow, and be ‘useful’ in doing so " a couple dozen times at least. Add that to your typical name calling, (a real impressive feat), and you have one messed up lady who just hates others to call her on it so much so that she must rapidly hide behind her foul language and her raging " out-of-control, potty mouth! Do yourself a favor; just stay away from the parodies I write and you won’t feel so victimized when you hear the truth
