The Lyrics

Gee, I wonder what I should use this title as a parody for?
Couple in the laptop
Gonna get the biz
I've been laughing at them all day long
Boy, these lyrics are not deep
And my version's just as cheap
Ricky Duncan is my name
And here's my song, words all wrong

My hero is Al Yankovic
Tom Lehrer and the others like them
And I write from the sake of my amusement
So to relieve the strife
When in my home with the Mariwife
I sit at my computer and do spoofing
With little proofing

Goals, I'm indifferent
Goals are the ends to my means
When I get an idea I can't block it
Com-e-dy,
I can find the humor in any tragedy
And each melody I sing
I have to mock it
I want to mock it

A flutist in a coffee house
Was playing in a band
Singin' funny songs
And going through guitarists
Well, I told her I was hung
And she never left that funny song unsung
And then that Handel's Hallelujah we both chorused

Then later we discovered this site
And we jumped on it with all our "insight"
And my lifelong obscurity ended
Well, we twisted all the words, sayin'
This is sumptin' and it's so absurd!
And just like a hog we were suspended
We were upended

Ho Ho what a site
Oh what a family Amiright
Every day I see joke and pun flingers
I was writing so sub-par
Now I've risen to a top ten star
Just thankin' the folks for the zingers
For the zingers

It's on his first solo album right after "Mother and Child Reunion" which was the big hit.

Hey, Rick and Mari. I always wanted to use this one to write a song about you, but you beat me to it! Great job, self-directed parody is not easy to do. d;:^)
