The Lyrics

I can't get no legal action, I can't get no legal action
Wanna fry some rich guy and I'm sly and can lie
I can't get no, legal action

I go out eating junk dude, but there is no finger in my food
I slip on a lemon peel, but not a broken hip I feel
Not even a dime from a class action deal

I can't get no. dough, dough, dough, dough. Hey, hey, hey
Try every day
I can't get no legal action, I can't get no legal action
wanna fry some rich guy and I'm sly and can lie
I can't get no, legal action

And my doctor Marcas Mac Gregg, never sawed off a wrong leg
And never got a hope
of a reacation or bad rash from soap
Man I'm losing all my hope

I can't get no. dough, dough, dough, dough. Hey, hey, hey
Try every day
I can't get no legal action, I can't get no legal action
wanna fry some rich guy and I'm sly and can lie
I can't get no, legal action

No coffee dumped on my lap
No big arse whirlwind I can tap
And no one's rear ended my car like they should
And everything I buy works real good
Man I really wish I understood

I can't get no. dough, dough, dough, dough. Hey, hey, hey
Try every day
I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no legal action, no legal action
No legal action, no legal action

Speaking as a decade police officer, we made this song in the 60's. Speaking as myself, I loved the concept of this parody; I think it was a fantastic spoof of our song, so I've got no choice but to vote 5,5,5 on it, mate!

Not bad...I didn't vote, though...not because of our initial conflict(s), but because I really prefer it when writer's vary their parody lyric substitutions for the repetitive chorus parts in the Original songs. It's just a whole lot more interesting to read when you do that...and it also serves to increase your linguistic agility at the same time. See, from this reader's point-of-view those repeated chorus lyrics create a sort of dead-end to my interest and I sort of rush through the rest of the piece once they start. I would start looking for words that rhyme with "action:" or phrases to sub in place of "legal action". Just a suggestion, though...you're the writer so it's your call.

Paul Robinson - I appreciate your technical advice and your advice on the repetitive parts of songs. I think they are very constructive and think it big of you to offer them. I am new at this; I have only submitted 12 parodies to date, (11 with my name and one in which I filled out the form incorrectly so it did not get credited to me, you may recall it, it was written to the song “Pop Goes the Weasel” and called “But Kill the Babies”). While I understand and think you are noble not to vote for the reason given, I really do not mind, (unless there is some popularity contest going on, I take my lumps as they come). I have voted on parodies with opposite views of my own trying hard to be objective and found some to be good and rated them as such. I have also given 5’s to authors who write non-political parodies that I have loved, but really did not care for the person, but that’s me. I do respect your honesty and will take your suggestions and use them for the future, thanks.
