The Lyrics

This is my 600th parody. If you'd told me a year ago I could write this many, I would have said you were drunk! I feel like it's time to slow down, but I felt that after 300, 400 and 500, so who knows? All I can say is it's been a blast.
When I go off to a party
All the tricks I love to show
Right down to the itchy-itchy powder
To the lit match on the toe

That plastic barf on your new carpet
Ice cube insects, a prank I love to use
Disappearing ink on your tie
And I covered your seat with ooze

Got a dribble glass, it's drippin'
Got a whoopie cush, it's rippin'
Buzzer in the hand, it's a-grippin'
A funny joke, if I ever did see one

Good luck brought her in here
To the humor shop I run
She bought a rubber chicken
And then I showed her a squirter gun

Oddballs I just favor
She certainly was one
I showed her the good stuff I had in the back
And we had a lot of fun

Got a dribble glass, it's drippin'
Got a whoopie cush, it's rippin'
Buzzer in the hand, it's a-grippin'
A funny joke, if I ever did see one

I tried the Chinese finger trap
And she ripped that thing in half
We played a round of "Twister" on the shop floor
We had a laugh

Now there's one trick in the whole darn world
That woman has no peer
That's when that little love of mine
Made a sausage disappear

Got to nibble ass, it's curin'
Got a whoopie tush, it's stirrin''
Buzzer in the gland, it's a-purrin'
A funny joke, if I ever did see one

Now me and my date were out on the town
We had Albert in a can
We asked the cook if he had pig's feet
And a wedding we did plan

And then she gave my thumb a pull
And I pressed the "farty" sound
And we laughed as everyone stared at us
As phony bugs we downed

Got a dribble glass, it's drippin'
Got a whoopie cush, it's rippin'
Buzzer in the hand, it's a-grippin'
A funny joke, if I ever did see one

Then we moved to California
To the land of fruits and nuts
Now we're selling plastic butts
It takes a lot of guts

So I guess we're very scary happy
And the gags keep rollin' in
Cause you know we're clowns, I'm always tempted
To go up right her dressie again

Got to nibble ass, it's curin'
Got a whoopie tush, it's stirrin''
Buzzer in the gland, it's a-purrin'
A fun ol' poke, if I ever did have one

Outstanding, Rick! And congrats on hitting 600. That alone is mighty impressive, but the consistent quality of your work is amazing.

Since "Sex" is "Six" in Latin, and "Centurion" was an ancient Roman officer in charge of 100 troops, I congratulate you, Rick, on becoming Amiright's Sex Centurion.

Really funny stuff on a great old tune. I don't even KNOW 600 songs, much less could I ever do that many. Keep on Rolling them out!

Heh heh Rick - now I am picturing you as "Stanley" from the Golden Girls... ;-D

Those gags are as old as the hills, but they never fail. Good one - it made me laugh.

A parody truly worthy of a massive milestone. Congratulations. (I'm knockin' on the door of 500 myself, so I better make it a blast.)

Rick - CONGRATS on SIX HUNDRED!! I've been finishing and filing Tax Returns for myself and family members all week and then took Dad to play cards in Commerce yesterday (he made $31, not bad for an 89-year old, although he was not all impressed with that sum - but agreed that it beats losing $. He finished in the black 2 out of 3 times since we agreed he shouldn't drive down there anymore (20+ miles each way. Maybe I'm his lucky chaffeur...). Nice choice for a milestone parody, haven't seen you (or too many other folks as I think about it) doing stuff by "The Band" before - although you probably have a few somewhere in those 600. I had been thinking of dipping into their catalogue myself of late, but always seem to get distracted with other stuff. 5's here for fine & funny stuff.

(ABC 'U') I gagged on the first two parodies on this contest only to find a different kind of gag here. Well done and congrats on your milestone.

(ABC) Who knew there could be such Freudianism in Practical Joke Products? (She bought a rubber chicken/And then I showed her a squirter gun) This one grew better as I read it. 555

Brilliant, Rick - and to keep up such inventiveness after 0.6k parodies is really quite something :-)

(ABC) See above where I dubbed Sir Richard The Sex Centurion!

(ABC "U") Looks like your character does indeed do a little "dippin" here, Rick. Great job. 5's...
