The Lyrics

And now, a bonus parody for Bond History Month! This parody focuses on Goldfinger's hat-hurling henchman Oddjob, played by Japanese-American actor Harold Sakata. Enjoy the parody!
He might not really be tall,
But let me tell ya, he’ll hold his own during a brawl!
There ain’t no tellin’ whom he’ll soon cross,
A British spy, or maybe even a Mafia boss!

(Talkin’ bout that) Oddjob,
Talkin’ bout that Oddjob, yeah!
(Come on and sing it with me!)
Oddjob!
(Sing it with a feelin’, y’all!)
Oddjob, yeah!

Most muthas who cross him end up dead,
He ain’t no guy to meet if you plan on keepin’ your head!
Let me tell you, just play it cool,
‘Cause this dude don’t like it when ya act the fool!

(Not that) Oddjob,
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
Talkin’ bout that Oddjob, yeah!
(Come on y’all and sing it for me!)
Oddjob!
(Whoo hoo hoo!)
Oddjob, yeah!

(Throw and throw)
Well, his boss has a real gold obsession,
(Throw and throw)
He don’t know the word “recession”!
(Throw and throw)
His bowler hat around.
(Throw)
One hit to the neck, anyone’s goin’ down!

Hey, don’t get in Oddjob’s way!
If you do, then you will pay!
Just call on James Bond today!
Call on Bond, run away!

(From that) Oddjob,
Talkin’ bout that Oddjob!
Oddjob, yeah!
(Come on y’all and sing it with me!)
Oddjob!
(Sing it with feelin’, y’all!)
Oddjob, yeah!

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
Oddjob,
(His boss has a real gold obsession, what I say)
Oddjob, yeah!
(He don’t know the word “recession”)
Oddjob!
(Let me tell you, just play it cool)
Oddjob, yeah!
(‘Cause this dude don’t like it when ya act the fool!)

Yeah, Oddjob was short but strong, well at least till he went for his hat and blew a fuse! ;-D and golf is still not the National game of Korea! ;-D Great Parody Dylan, 555! :-)

True, Trivia: Also Harold Sakata who played the part of Oddjob, definitely minus his strength and build, stands 5 feet 10 inches tall, which is my height too. ;-) Although my right leg is shorter than my left leg, making one side of my body, shorter than 5 feet 10 inches tall, and lopsided.

Dylan - "You expect me to read this?" "No, Mr. Ribber. I expect you to score this highly!" (Fortunately, I can do that...so turn off that laser beam, ok?) ;D

Don't worry, Old Man, the laser has been shut off! Thank you all for your support! We will return next week with "Thunderball"!

Best of the Bonds so far. Keep 'em coming.

I recognize this song and I know the character so I'm happy so far.

Yaaay, even a bored-with-Bond-films girl like me knows who Oddjob is! Liked this one very much - throwing you a 555 (minus pointy, death-slicing edges of course)
