The Lyrics

All the talk about copycats yesterday gave us an idea.
Clones to You

Why do you suddenly appear
Over there, when you're here
Goodness me, he seems to be
A clone to you

Why do folks often rub their eyes
Every time you walk by
Golly gee, there's at least three
Clones to you

In the days before their births
The doctors got together
And decided to create another you
So they sprinkled cells from sterile vials
And in a while, instead of one, there's two

(piano trilltwice)

That is why all the girls in town
When I call, turn me down
They've got dates
With ninety-eight
Clones to you

(Duplicate the release)

(Repeat the last verse)

Clones to you

(Do this last part again)

You cloned the original song and then parodied its DNA magnificently.

that's fantastic Rick, and judging by your humility in the comments (advice? to you? where did that attitude go? ;-) ) this was a very early one. Great lines and ideas though. You should re-release it. - 555
