The Lyrics

Is this, to use VH1's phrase, the most "awesomely bad" song ever? It's gotta be at least a finalist. Nothing like taking a song you hate and making a parody you love.
He was tired of his lady.
I know that sounds kinda wrong.
Worse, he made a recording
of a horrible song.
See, she was already cheating
through an ad classified.
But he still didn't know it.
He was quite stupefied.

Well, I like pina coladas.
But not this song, I'll explain.
He's a guy who's a cheater.
He doesn't have half a brain.
And he likes making love at midnight
but he cast off his mate.
Rupert Holmes wrote this bad song.
It's one that I really hate!

He didn't think about his lady.
I know that sounds obvious.
But he and his old lady
when it comes to brains, they both missed the bus.
So he picked up a pencil.
Took out a personal ad.
Proved he was nobody's poet.
It was much more than half-bad.

Yes, I like pina coladas.
But this song is a strain.
And if I hear it one more time
I might throw up again.
I might still feel bad tomorrow, noon
in a nauseous state.
Rupert Holmes wrote this bad song.
It's one that I really hate!

So I met his girlfriend dope
and she walked in the place.
She shook her head for an instant.
A sad look crossing her face.
Said that bum's lovely lady
"Mike, you do not want me.
I was really hot back then.
But now I'm 53."

Yes, I like pina coladas.
But that song is a bane.
I guess they're made for each other.
They are well nigh insane.
They still like making love at midnight.
Did not, thank God, procreate!
Is that the worst song of all time?
It's one that I really hate!

Yes, I like pina coladas.
But that song is a bane.
I guess they're made for each other.
They are well nigh insane.
They still like making love at midnight.
Did not, thank God, procreate!
Is that the worst song of all time?
It's one that I really hate!

You took this song and attacked it appropriately.

555, dude. The song doesn't really bother me, but I can see how others would be driven insane by it.

Sir Michael, this ~OS~ I've always been quite fond of whenever it plays on my car radio. It always makes me smile; and I like your parody, too! It's just a song about rekindled romance, that has a happy ending . . .

Unlike the OS, this was awsomely good--the best one today! 555.

She grabbed my coconuts and then she ran away - and wrote that stupid song.

Great job! Who couldn't hate the OS? I don't know why I noticed this, but the pacing and sylls for this song almost fit exactly into Sister Golden Hair! Almost!

You be forgiven, Pip. Cakes: I can't believe you like the OS! I thought you were smart and had taste! Everyone else: Thank you. I really enjoyed skewering this one.

Hmmm...of course I love the parody...nice work, Mr. P. But I have to admit that the OS is something of a guilty pleasure. I mean...you can't HELP but sing along, right? ; )
LittleCupCakes - May 02, 2008 - Report this comment
I agree with Arwen, the OS is quite delightful and always brightens my mood; and so is your parody, Sir. And I wonder , why you chose this ~OS~ . . . .

I really like your parody because I hate that song. However, I know some 53 year olds that are hotter than people younger than them so I must disagree with that statement.
