The Lyrics

It's "Am I Right?" and they can be gonged
Their comedy is in their songs
The Gothic, the Thinker, The Stoner and friends
Make no ref'rence to what group I'm in

I am Parody people, yeah yeah

There is a left one who can't accept the right one
For toking on a fat one trying to be "The Skinny" one
And different tokes for different folks
And so on and so on and doobie doobie doo-bee (Contact high only)
Oh sha sha - we ought to laugh together

You are no comic and neither are they (paid comics)
We laugh the game whenever we play
You love 'em you hate 'em and vote 'em and then
You can compensate the gags they spin

They are Parody People, yeah yeah

You have a song phrase that juvenates the long face
Now feeling like a diaper but you can help this griper
And different jokes for different folks
And so on and so on and poopy poopy poo-pee
Oh sha sha-we ought to laugh together

There is a sallow one that won't accept the wack fun
That won't accept un-dead ones that won't accept the live ones
And different votes from different blokes
Oh sha sha-

They are Parody People.

Loved it. You rock! By the way, TOS is from the 60s, but that's rather insignificant. 5/5/5.
