Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I know there's a view that the Angelina/Jon Voight feud was Ange's doing, but I make 2 counter-points - 1. Angelina is a flawless goddess - 2. I have an equally beautiful 10 y.o. daughter, and I take it as my duty to ensure she never disowns me

Angeli-na was...
very small
and tears were in - her eyes
but you dried them all
She thought her dad
ohh
would be her rock
But that aint what - went - down
You got rid of your troubled daughter
and it makes me frown
To get rid of your troubled daughter
what a bad-ass clown

As a wayward gal...
torn apart
She married Bill - y Bob
which wasn't smart
She wore a vial
OF
her Billy's blood
But that aint cause - e - nough
to get rid of your troubled daughter
that's some lousy stuff
Getting rid of a troubled daughter
isn't good enough

Sail on Angie girl...
sail on high
Your time has come - to shine
You can reach and touch the sky
See how you shine
YOU
have found your peace
unlike your lou - sy - dad
who got rid of his troubled daughter
Is he raving mad?
such a beautiful troubled daughter
It is just too sa-a-a-a-a-d

Angelina is flawless? Sure looks like it, but she's got one flaw: She's nuts! I've often said: Angelina for a night, but only one night, otherwise she might get you killed; J-Lo for a month, but no longer, which works out fine for her too; and CZJ for life, if she'll just leave that wrinkled husk of a husband!

I'm with you on the timespans, but exactly the reverse on the order of the three there, Michael, which might work out perfectly for the 2 of us one day!! :-)

(ABC Y 06) Wow...I just realized how old this parody is. Maybe it's because I'm more used to the SOTM format. Great job Stu. You and Angelina make parody gold!
Red Ant - February 26, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC-Y) Stu, you know I love your work (and I loved this too) however I simply couldn't get your second verse to scan, where TOS starts "When you’re down and out...". I don't believe I've ever docked you on pacing before, so I hope my 455 won't be too disconcerting.
Stuart McArthur - February 26, 2006 - Report this comment
no worries, Red - "When you're down and out" actually scans truly onto my "As a wayward gal" - but I think it's the second line of that verse you're referring to, which in the OS does pace differently to the equivalent line in the OS's first verse

This was one of my early submissions, when my priority was reader intuitivity (still is), so I just copied the pacing of the first verse, which I thought the reader would naturally expect - I've since learnt to disguise these little tricks better - but you've always been very astute, Red!

Just stumbled on this roughly 4.63267 years post-postily, and thought I'd lay some belated compliments on ya! As the owner (in the loosest sense of the word) of a 15 y.o. daughter (at the time of your posting), I couldn't agree more! Also I wanted to praise Chris Bodily TM for somehow avoiding any knowledge of one of the greatest/most Garfunktabulous OS's evah!
