The Lyrics

"Philbo, I would believe you have written a song about navel lint! You seem to have done one for almost everything else."

Well, I hadn't.. so I thought I'd better :-)
Where can you find pleasure
Searching there for treasure
You may find 'bout anything
No plastic surgeons for ya
No navel destroyer
Making holes for a navel ring
And if you've got the leisure
Sample your own measure
Checking in it ain't perverse
So for to see what's cooking
Be sure to have a look in-
Side the centre of your universe:

Chorus:
In the navel
You can find all sorts of stuff
In the navel
Lots of little bits of fluff
In the navel
Check it out, it's not just lint
In the navel
In the navel
In the navel
Lose your photographic prints
In the navel
Decorated curtain chintz
In the navel
Pick it out, try not to wince
In the navel
In the navel

Take a look, take a look
Take a look in your tummy's nook

's really quite amazing
Trying navel-gazing
Long and loopy little bits of hair
I'm not taking the Michael
Of that end-zone umbilical
Just hoping it ain't seamen there
Maybe you are too young
To find that egg foo yung
You lost in there yesterday
Ain't no sense in cuttin'
Up your tummy button
Poke around inside and play:

Chorus

Take a look, take a look
Take a look in your tummy's nook

Who me?

Take a look, take a look
Take a look in your tummy's nook

But, but but I'm afraid of water.
Hey, hey look Man, I haven't washed *there* for years!

Take a look x4

Chorus to fade

Phil Alexander notified me
He had just given birth to a wacky parody
I had another look
And I laughed so hard I shook
So he got three 5's

eeewww. Good parody of a good parody subject. Next, it's on to a butt-lint parody or one about that gummy substance between the toes. 555

Phil, be sure to post the umbilical re-cording of this one on the web - it's a belly laugh!

Nice parody! Did you know you're the second songwriter to use an irregular pronunciation of "umbilical" so it'll rhyme? (The first is Andy Partridge of XTC, who used that same poetic license in "Season Cycle.")

Brilliant Philbo. What started as an off the cuff comment I made in a forum 3 days ago has become a classic. Well done
Phil Alexander - January 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Just noticed I haven't commented on this one... thanks for all the kind words-
Neil- thanks for the inspiration: it's got to come from somewhere, obviously
Olvan- I like finding odd rhymes, it always adds a smile
JD- I don't know if I'll be recording this one.. in the words of the song: "Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps"

Anyway, glad to know I hadn't, er, fluffed this one...

How am I the first person to actually vote on this?!
Phil Alexander - December 01, 2011 - Report this comment
Matthias - I think it's because of the massive vote loss back in '04, and nobody's been back since. There's a handful of mine still without votes from then.

Hmm: security code 665 - the neighbour of the Beast
