The Lyrics

My whole family loves dogs. This is a true story about one that my youngest sister rescued from the side of the road several years ago
Mangy...mangy
When will these fleas all disappear

Mangy...mangy
Think I scratched off my left ear

With no Alpo in my bowl
Two flea armies in my coat
These mites must be rectified

Mangy...mangy
Damn flea collar must have died

Mangy...it's pitiful...ouch
A scratch in time just might save nine

Mangy...I'm still itchin'
Remember all those bites from flies

All the powder I have on
Wishin' all these fleas were gone
Will you scratch behind my ear?

Mangy...mangy
Get that queen flea over here

I'm mangy and I itch
I'm a snappin' snarlin' bitch
I hate this lesion on my thigh

I'm mangy...mangy
I've tried baths but it's no dice

With no Alpo in my bowl
Two flea armies in my coat
These mites must be rectified

I'm mangy, I'm still itchin' baby
Here in every nook I see more mites

There ain't a mongrel that comes close to me
Guess today I'll bite some flies

Mangy...mangy
Would you believe that there's a hive

Mangy...mangy
I've tried everything but fire

I have two border collies, one of which I rescued from the street. Great song Dee. If I recall correctly the other Mangy was one of Adagio's earliest parodies. Both were well scratched out. 5's.

Guy, thanks for the comment, and also for rescueing the collie.
Adagio - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Thank you, Title Police for pointing mine out. I must admit, Dee, that I was irritated because my 'Mangy' is one of my favorite parodies. You do know that on 'search', if you put the title in, amiright googles it for amiright parodies, so you can do a search.

In Dee's defense...he's fairly new...and while you have every right to be proud of your parody, Adagio, if he's not totally plagiarizing your work, (which he's not) I don't really see any reason for you to be irritated.

First of all, I'd like to say that I like both of your parodies.

I'm working on "I Want a New Job" to "I Want a New Drug" right now. I had the idea, but then I ran a search to see if anyone else had done it. Turns out Rice Cube and Walt Daddy did. But it isn't going to stop me from doing mine. Our concepts are pretty different. And I don't see why I shouldn't be able to. So for Dee and Adagio, perhaps great minds just think alike...
Dee Range - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Adagio, thanks for pointing out the search feature for me. That will save me some embarrassment in the future. If I had seen yours beforehand, I still would have posted mine, but I would have posted your name in the comments section before the parody, giving you credit for having come up with the title first.
Arwen - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
One time I was working VERY hard on "Gay Stripper" to "Day Tripper," when I searched and found that Rick had already done it. The only reason I didn't post mine was that it sucked in comparison.

I say...if you are proud of your work...post it. I just wasn't very proud of mine.

I've had a couple ideas where I'd written part or the whole song, then found out someone had done the same song (usually Malcolm Higgins). Others have returned the favor to me. I generally try to point out the "first" author in my comments section to give them credit, and maybe a few hits. If it's obvious the two songs were written totally separate from each other, I don't have a problem with it. PS: good job =)
Adagio - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Dee...:) Thanks for taking notice of the 'search'. You have an excuse...you are new, but I've seen authors that have been here for ages that don't know how to use that feature.


Dee, you are forgiven 1. If you vote for mine and 2. Write I will use search 500 times....lol
Adagio - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
What happened? I wrote a message to Arwen in my last comment too...no need to defend...he can defend himself...unless you know of my 'shortie' weapon. And Dee, it would have been perfectly acceptable to post this giving credit to mine.

Adagio; 500 searches I promise to do, 500 searches to do;search one now, that's what I vow, 499 searches to do...LOL

I wasn't trying to defend him...(I realize that I used "In Dee's defense,")...as much as I was stating my opinion that I didn't think your irritation was really justified.

I honestly think that if an author has a thought...all by himself...and writes a parody...only to find after the fact that someone else did it...it might be nice to "credit" the other author...but I don't think they should feel obligated to do it.

Dee thought of it all by himself...just like you did. The fact that it's similar has nothing to do with it. Why should he credit anyone?
Meriadoc - August 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Dee I thought this was very good. And even veteran authors come up with the same ideas and sometimes forget to search first - we completed "Every Nose Has its Horn" only to discoved just before we went to post Jared had already used the title, and Pacholek did "Stealing Things from Sears" about a year after we did ours.
Dee Range - August 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Meriadoc, and everyone else who posted here, thanks for your understanding and help. I know, with so many prolific authors on this site, that many ideas will be similar and ever identical, but the bottom line is, we all like to laugh, and make each other laugh. If two people do the same song, we just get to laugh twice as much, hopefully. After all, there are hundreds of cars, damn near identical, that all get us where we are trying to go. Or in my case, halfway there, usually. -:)

To "Title Police": There's no law that says a parody title can be used only once. In fact, there are lots of instances where a parody title has been used over and over again for different parodies on this site. A good example: there are quite a few "Rogaine" parodies of Eric Clapton's "Cocaine." On the other hand, if a parody's lryics were exactly verbatim to those of another parody, that would be plagairism; then the real parody police would report it.

As the dog said when he discovered a new flea, "I can't believe I missed this one!" As he did not say, "This was terrific!"

Nicely said, xyz. I was going to tell that to "Title Police"... this is completely different from the one which "Title police" had pointed out.

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