The Lyrics

Ophelia
Your Hamlet's gone mad
He's faking insanity daily

Oh Ophelia
He's down on his knees
"Count-ry matters" he slyly moans

Ophelia
What will you do now?
You're going mad under the pressure!

Oh Ophelia
Your Hamlet's a tease
"Count-ry matters" he slyly moans
Oh he moans!


Makin' love in the afternoon
With Ophelia
In Hamlet's bedroom (Makin' love!)

Hamlet's father's ghostly eyes!

Next thing O-phelia knows,
Hamlet's sword just won't rise!


Ophelia
What will you do now?
Your Hamlet is acting so strangely!

Oh Ophelia
Your Hamlet's a tease
"Count-ry matters" he slyly moans
Oh he moans!

To be orrrrr not to be!
To be orrrrr-not, not-not, to be!

( instrumental )

Po-lo-niiii-us!
Ophelia's Dad!
That long-winded blabbermouth bought it!

Oh La-errrr-tes!
You're pissed-off and mad!
You poisoned your sword like a bastard!

Alas Yorrrr-ick!
Of infinite jest!
And excellent fancy, Horatio!

Oh oh ohhhh-oh!
Oh oh oh oh oh!
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh-oh, oh, oh!

To vote, or not to vote, that is the question
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous comments
Or to take arms against a sea of 1-votes
And by parodying, mock them

...it's something like that, anyway ;-)

I thought this was clever as hell. You should be getting a present in the mail today, if you haven't already, on top of your fives.

Philbo: Aye, there's the rub o'the magic one-eyed wonder weasel ...

Adagio: And I'll just say....thank you!

Guy: I'll try to make a habit of it, Friar DiRito!

Rick: Thanks, and nothing in the mail yet - still watching & waiting...

Rice Cube: Yeah, imagine "Simonkrantz and Garfunkelstern".... LOL !

Oh. My. Hell. I LOVE this. Hamlet = my all time favorite piece by the old Bard. Cecelia = my all time favorite Simon & Garfunkle song. This couldn't be better...awesome!!! 5s!

Johnny D - I saw someone scored a "4" in pacing and I went back twice to see why. That's how damned good you have gotten! I couldn't really see why and I tried because I wanted to make sure I wasn't just rewarding your well-earned reputation here. No need for concern, again you earn, perhaps I'll learn, we now adjourn...5-5-5

Arwen: You're such a sweet Eldar Aristocrat, thank you!!

Mari D: "Brush up your Shakespeare, start quoting him now!"

Jack: Thanks!

Paul: You are too kind, sir!

Gosh everybody, what can I say, thanks so much!

Forsooth? No, FIVE sooth! Phil: I can't believe you didn't think of this one first. Guy: Good call. Cube: Did you ever see Paul Simon singing "Scarborough Fair" in similar garb and playing a lute on the Muppet Show? Let's just say Miss Piggy didn't make it one of her better duets. Claude: You're a bad boy. Don't change.

All fives for the heavy Freudian undertones and concurrent phallic symbolism.

(ABC) A solid parody, not as funny as others you've done but that's probably because I DKTOS and DKTOSP (Shakespearean play)...would seeing the Lion King be enough?
Johnny D - August 17, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Luke, and yes, The Lion King will do just fine! ;-D
The Invincible - August 17, 2004 - Report this comment
Having just read Hamlet last year, I can understand all those nuances you put in. I believe that someone can use this for a report of some kind. All fives. To write, to sleep no more.
Johnny D - August 18, 2004 - Report this comment
Thank you, The Invincible! The parody's the thing, wherein we'll catch the nonsense of the sing!
