The Lyrics

I'm just cross-dressing in this place full of hurt
Meeting so many soldiers
Who are dying to be free

And while applying my mascara and rouge
The sound barrier's broken
By jets over me

If you don't want my cheap perfume
To blow about you
And you're a person with a sensitive nose
Don't smell me

I'm Corporal Klinger -
Please think I'm a sick man!

A thousand pictures from women's magazines
I'm my own makeup artist
I paint my nails green

A thousand smiles from my M*A*S*H friends each day
If they think I'm a psycho
What a help that would be!

So if you know the Army's rules
For a Section Eight
And you can see exactly what to do
Please tell me!

I'm Corporal Klinger -
Please think I'm a sick man!

How can we understand
Violence by Koreans for Koreans
Who are only destroying themselves?
And when you see a scared civilian
Who is frightened by the soldiers
Who are
(Scorching) Scorching this earth
(Scorching) Scorching this earth

I'm just cross-dressing in this place full of hurt
Hoping that my commander
Will think that I'm crazy

And while I'm squeezing into girdle and bra
The sound barrier's broken
By jets over me

If you don't want my cheap perfume
To blow about you
And you're a person with a sensitive nose
Don't smell me

I'm Corporal Klinger -
Please think I'm a sick man!

How can we understand
Violence by Koreans for Koreans
Who are only destroying themselves?
And when you see a scared civilian
Who is frightened by the soldiers
Who are
(Scorching) Scorching this earth
(Scorching) Scorching this earth

Madness is the method of (my) cross-dressing world
Hoping Section Eight discharge will release me

I'm Corporal Klinger -
Please think I'm a sick man!

He's Corporal Klinger -
He won't dress like a man!

Madness is the method of (my) cross-dressing world
Hoping Section Eight discharge will release me

I'm Corporal Klinger -
Please think I'm a sick man!

That Corporal Klinger's a cross-dressing con-man!

Funniness and pathos at the same time. 5's

Nice juxtaposition of Klinger in a Moody Blues song. Speaking of MASH, there are MASH 2 cent slot machines all over Las Vegas.

Thanks, Adagio and Tim!

This was a zinger
Not a flash in the pan

Nice job JD. M*A*S*H was one of my all time favorite TV shows. Three fives make an Article-15. That as the best Klinger could have ever hoped for.

Thanks, Guy - what's Article 15? Something Klinger would get for not being in uniform?
Stray Pooch - January 03, 2004 - Report this comment
Man, was this a good parody! FYI an Article 15 is a non-judicial punishment (in other words, it is less than a court martial but can still cost you a stripe, some bucks or some extra duty). It's the military way of dealing with offenses without involving the courts. Klinger could very well have received such punishment for being out of uniform. This was just funny and really used the original well. Good job, Johnny! If yer not careful, somebody's gonna do a parody called "Johnny D's Good!" :D

Guy - January 03, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah - Article 15 is somewhat like a misdemeanor versus a felony in a way. It usually does not get someone released from military comittment but it can in some cases. It's kind of like a plea bargain where the offender is offered this instead of a court martial. Signing it means the same as a plea bargain in a civilian court. It is just one of 146 articles of the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) and it is entitled 'Non Judicial Punishment'.

Rick, you're nuts.

That should be pretty obvious by now.

Thanks, Rick - and Guy, thanks for the explanation of Article 15.

Five hot dogs at Tony Packo's! (Not to be confused with five chalupas, I'll leave that for Wild Man to decide.)
