The Lyrics

15 parodies so far on this song, this will be the 16th, and hopefully the last
The problem's originality, I have to say
Now how many times do we have to spoof 50 Ways?
It's getting harder every day to find some praise
For spoofs on "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"

Not my intention to be impolite or rude
And I half expect the feedback to be full of attitude
But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of comments crude
Please, no more "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"
No more spoofs on Simon's Lover

Just sing a new song, Wong
Get some new chants, Vance
Pick some other tune, June
A new melody

Find a new dirge, Virge
A new madrigal, Sal
Another etude, Jude
Please listen to me

Sing a new song, Wong
Get some new chants, Vance
Pick some other tune, June
A new melody

Post a new spoof, Ruth
Another satire, Meyer
A new parody, Lee
Just set your mind free

I say it grieves me so to see these parodies
Most of them are poorly written, tho I know you aim to please
So I say thanks, and all that
But could you please refrain from spoofing 50 Ways?

I hear you say you just might sleep on that tonight
But when I turn on my computer in the early morning light
And I'm net-surfing, and I finally come 'round to Am I Right
There'll be more "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover"
Brand new spoofs on Simon's Lover

Just sing a new song, Wong
Get some new chants, Vance
Pick some other tune, June
A new melody

Find a new dirge, Virge
A new madrigal, Sal
Another etude, Jude
Please listen to me

Sing a new song, Wong
Get some new chants, Vance
Pick some other tune, June
A new melody

Post a new spoof, Ruth
Another satire, Meyer
A new parody, Lee
Just set your mind free

I did Soldier Boy with the parody name Skater Boy once as an anti Skater Boy parody.

What's up with the title of the song parody? Did Paul Simon die or something?
sloatead - February 01, 2004 - Report this comment
