The Lyrics

well, i find my blood begin to bubble
brother...what a travesty
someone else has butchered "let it be"
and when i do some searching
there are forty versions that i see
seems that all the world's done "let it be"

"bearded fleas"..."let it bleed"..."let me sleep"..."let it pee"
yes, everyone has tackled "let it be"

and when they're taking on the beatles
other folks may disagree
how could you do that to "let it be" ?
and though the band's departed
they would scream and rant, if they could see
how the people mangled "let it be"

"twenty-three"..."smelly tree"..."allergies"..."kenny g."
they've wrecked paul mc cartney's "let it be"

"christmas tree"..."toast for me"..."howard dean"..."dentistry"
look what folks have done to "let it be"

"let aunt bee"..."tickle me"..."g.o.p."..."l.s.d."
why can't people learn to let it be

now, don't start getting rowdy
and don't try to pick a fight with me
go ahead and borrow "let it be"
go think up new words to the music
that will be just fine with me
realized i'm doing "let it be"

"a.c.t."..."jeopardy"..."parody"..."write in c"
even i have ruined "let it be"

"bath oil beads"..."mondegreen"..."lefties be"..."its just me"
now, there's one entitled "let it be"

When I found this parody by Alvin
I read it and smiled with glee
Alvin's words of wisdom
Bearded Fleas?

Bearded Fleas?
Bearded Fleas?
Bearded Fleas?
Huh? Bearded Fleas?
I wrote one called "Breaded"
Not "Bearded Fleas"

Alvin - clever way to handle this song. When I was first on the site and trying to figure out how to get to "10" parodies I started to do this with the ever-original "Let Me Pee" theme...and then I thought about how many times that must have been done (I don't think I even knew how to check the site Archives for versions of the original song at time). So I took a pass. I still like some of the ones people post on it...IF THERE really CLEVER and do something fresh/original with it...kinda like this one.

I liked it. Let it be was the first one I parodied, even though you didn't mention it ("You're crazy".) Nice. 555

This was very good.

Clever concept Alvin! And as I have a definite anti-Beatle bias, I think this and the other 40-odd versions are improvements on the original(ducks flying missiles). ;-)

very clever and funny ... must admit to having a soft spot for the Joe Cocker version of this song ...

Sweet one, Alvin. I enjoyed this (my own LIB parody being a Picard "Make It So" variant) :-)

Well at least I finally got one of my parodies mentioned on another parody. I still prefer my Let It Pee to your Let It Be.

This is imaginative enough to where it didn't bother me as much being "in crowd". I covered the agony of ruining Beatle songs by ruining "Eleanor Rigby.". (Sellin' a Product)

Alvin, where have you been? The site needs you back!!!
Andria - May 06, 2010 - Report this comment
If that's really you, Alvin, welcome back!!! (I have seen AFW, Tommy Turtle and Michael Pacholec impersonators around here from time to time)

Looking forward to your next parody!
