The Lyrics

Another installment in my "Theme Songs for Guests of the Jerry Springer Show" series. And by series, I mean I have one other parody that fits into that category. Anyway...on today's show, we feature a tragically infertile husband who sent his wife to a celebrity sperm bank in hopes that she might conceive with the seed of his favorite actor, Mr. Chevy Chase. Sadly...she's got some news to share with him...through song.
Eight months a-long
Some in-fo you need to learn
The seed you thought was in there
Think a-gain
It was wrong
Wrong to tell you it was him
It ain't Chevy, it's your brother

Just so you know
Please don't look at me so stern
Your nephew or niece I bear
Can't you share?
Though I know
You want-ed Fletch's ba-by
It ain't Chevy, it's your brother

If you're angry at all
Or wallowed in sadness
The whin-ing don't start
You should be filled with gladness
Got it on with your bro-ther

Thought you should be told
While en route to the sperm bank
Ran into your bro, who said
"You I'll bed."
So I rode
In his truck, then I got down
In a Chevy, with your brother

With your brother!

It ain't Chevy, it's your brother!

Now I'm guessing, Dear Arwen, that you got the title first and crafted a concept out of it....major kudos for coming up with something SO odd yet so possible. Brill! 555

An hour watching Springer is an hour wasted. I'd rather sit on a bed of coals for an hour than watch his crap. I'd get more out of it. As far as your song goes, it is written well but I can't get any humor out of the pathetic morons on his show. I'd have to mark you way down in the humor column so I will refrain from voting and just say you write well but the subject matter is rather tasteless to me and has no entertainment value to my sensibilities.

I would say Kristof is right because this is the sort of laboured contrived set-up parody exercise that I'm fond of doing - the reason being that I think that sort of thing is hilarious, like this is - Springer in content, Arwen, but Seinfeldian in laboured contrivedness - 555

Jack...heck no...he eats out of the neighbor's trash just like everybody else. What do you think I am, some sort of millionaire?


Michael...yeah yeah, you and your emptry promises. You have got to stop playing games with my emotions.

John...hee hee! Thanks!

Ravyn...Hooray!! Thanks!


Merry...thanks a bunch! vote for Pudding Pops.

Johnny...I'm not exactly sure where that charming quote comes from...but thanks for the 5s...; )

Kristof...I'm really not sure which came first. I mean, I had wanted to do the OS with a "I'm pregnant with your brother's child" theme for a while...but I'd always been trying to do a "it's not yours, it's his" type of thing. And it just never happened for me. So it had been on the back burner for months and months. day, the song came on the radio, and "Chevy" came to mind. I wasn't sure how I was going to make it work...but thankfully I it's at least off of my to-do list! Phew! Now, if only I can finish this Dinner Party themed musical I've been writing, I'll be REALLY happy...=)

Adam...thanks a ton!

Non Springer Fan...I don't know what you're talking about. The guests on that show are the cream of the crop, Bub...I should hope one day to be as classy as they are.

Stuart...well, you can read my response to Kristof to see whether or not he's right...I can't remember at this point what either of us said...; ) But thanks!

Hey Arwen...I know I haven't stopped by in quite some time; that's because I've been quite busy, especially with holiday shopping and preparations. Anyway I think this is a fantastic parody!

P.S. Merry Christmas!! I hope you have a nice one!

I haven't heard the original at least a couple years, but I'm gonna 5-5-5 it anyway. Merry Christmas from me, too! And to everyone on this site!

10 ways to better spend your time and are more interesting than watching an hour of Springer.: 1 Watching paint dry 2. Sticking your head in the freezer and watching your breath condense. 3. Sitting around in your underwear counting the nuts in a Mr. Good bar. 4. Watching haircuts. 5. Tuning from Springer when you see it on your TV screen and surfing down to a test pattern. 6. Touring a rendering plant. 7. Sniffing rotten eggs and spoiled milk then smiling to repress the gag reflex. 8. Spending an hour listening to the wit and humor of John Kerry. 9. Driving the DC beltway at rush hour. 10. Beating up a mime.

I love Jerry Springer, and I was a little bit disturbed when Sally Jesse Raphael, Jenny Jones, Donahue and Geraldo went off the air, however, Serena (my latest girlfriend) hates "Trash TV", so she is not around when I watch Springer and drink large quantities of Jolt Cola.

I hate JS but I love this parody. 5's
Mr. X - January 04, 2007 - Report this comment seems like half a dozen people have commented on this since Arwen's lazy ass was last here. (Sorry, I was just rephrasing a comment from another parody. Please don't be offended.) By the way, I, too, dislike Springer but think this is a good song parody.

Was it something like, "...lazy ass needs to get over here and acknowledge her admirers; I'll get the picture"?

Funny...I got online for just a minute this afternoon and realized I had a lot of people to thank on this parody...but didn't have time to do it while I was at work. And for that brief moment, I thought..."I wonder how long it's going to be before someone throws down my 'lazy ass' quote." It's almost like I'm a little bit psychic. But mostly...history just repeats itself. got me. Guess I'll have to brush up on my movie quotes before we spar again...; )

Serafina...thanks very much...I'm really glad you liked it. And I'm very sorry for the delay on thanking you, by the way.

Ferragamo...a belated Merry Christmas to you, too...and thanks for the vote...=)

Non Springer Fan...oh thanks a million. I've been Googling trying to find that list for ages. You're a peach.

Darrell...hey, drink a Jolt for me. Or for yourself...whichever. =) Thanks for stopping by....

Mr. Critic...thanks very much!

Mr. X...thanks for calling me out of hiding. And for taking the time to reference a comment I made a million years ago about my lazy ass. Because seriously...any ass publicity is good publicity, right? Right?

some person...I realize that you were talking to Mr. X, but I just wanted to thank you for actually looking the comment up so that you could quote it word for word. Nice work. I seriously don't even know which parody I originally said that on...and I definitely don't have the motivation to click on my "view all comments" page to find it. Thanks for doing the dirty work.

(sotm) clever idea, cleverly executed. I'll have to read the others in your series.

(SOTM) And I thought this was gonna be about Christmas Vacation. You put a lot of hard work and creativity into this, and the pacing was spot on. And I can see the guy right now, calling his wife a cheap, lying, no good, rotten, floor-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, ****less, hopeless, heartless, fat-***, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed, sack of monkey ****... which makes it even funnier! May the Chase be with you! 555

SOTM-It's rather curious where you came up with this idea, I voted on it and considering everyone has voted the same thing you can likely guess what I voted, it's very creative and pretty funny. . .I kinda feel sorry for the Chevy missing out on the action though.

SOTM - 04:22 is much too short for the conception of this theme, but then again conception doesn't have to take more than that (I've been told). :-)

(SOTM) When I firsted started reading this, I thought it was gonna be that there was a mix-up at the sperm bank. But I was wrong. Your version was much, MUCH funnier though. Well done, Arwen!

(SOTM) For a short time, I went by the nickname of "Fletch", though I don't think anyone wanted my sperm then. Nice switching around the meaning of "Chevy" toward the end, and I quite enjoyed this one, birthday girl. =)

I thought this was going to be about someone who intended to mate with a Chevy and got his brother by mistake. Now THAT would be JS material (see my own "Ballad of Jerry Springer"). But this was good!----MM

(SOTM) hmm, reading your reply to my comment, it's possible you may not have picked up the subtle "100% applause and admiration" tone - ie. I love parodies like this - just making the idea work is funny in itself :-)

(SOTM) Brilliantly clever and satirical parody -- one could easily imagine its story line being used as a Jerry Springer script!

You mean someone might *want* to have Chevy Chase as their sperm donor? No wonder they end up on Jerry Springer ;-)

Kinda random topic, but what isn't around here? I enjoyed the sound-alikes and the mix-up of the chorus to 'In a Chevy, with your brother'. And you'll always be a noun in my book.
