The Lyrics

This is just a name I made up and is no one I know. However it is from a real experience.
"Joe Tanna"
All I wanna do when I smell you in the morning is wipe my eyes
Joe Tanna, Joe Tanna
I really have to stay up wind if I want to breath, Joe Tanna

All I wanna do is press my nose together and hold it tight.
Joe Tanna, Joe Tanna
I didn't know how important hygiene really meant to me

It's been a year since you took a bath
Joe Tanna yeah
Now you reek and I have to say
Please keep far away, Please keep far away, Joe Tanna yeah
Please keep far away, Please keep far away, Joe Tanna yeah

I can smell your odor emanating through the window on the other side
Joe Tanna, Joe Tanna
I didn't know that a living soul could ever reek so bad, Joe Tanna

All I wanna tell you is now you're gonna have to be sanitized
Joe Tanna, Joe Tanna
Don't worry cause showering will never hurt that bad

It's been a year since you took a bath
Joe Tanna yeah
Now you reek and I have to say
Please keep far away, Please keep far away, Joe Tanna yeah
Please keep far away, Please keep far away, Joe Tanna yeah
(repeat)
Please keep far away, Please keep far away, Joe Tanna yeah
Please keep far away, Please keep far away, Joe Tanna yeah

Funny. It probably was very hard to make up a new title.;) I hereby request a ban on all "helpful" comments about what decade a song was released. It is rather annoying.
turkey - March 10, 2004 - Report this comment
I think the only thing that would solve this decade problem is for all new entries to go in as "misc." I mean, the decaide shouldn't have to be incorporated in the URL; it ain't all that relevant.

What would REALLY solve your so-called "decade problem" would be for you and all other decade nazis (who are probably all just you under different pen names) to quit obsessing about the URL and just shut up about it.

I do not know any of the other people who rant about the decades. In fact, I took my pseudonym from a segment of Family Feud where in the bonus round, some guy gave "Turkey" as a response to three of the questions. "Name something people take to the beach"; "Name the first thing you buy at the supermarket"; "A food often stuffed." That clip was on VH1 last night, along with other goofy clips. (By the way, the third response of "turkey" was worth 21 points because it actually made sense.)

I saw that clip too! It was part of "Most Outrageous Gameshow Moments"---what was that guy thinking when he answered "turkey" to the first two questions?
Joe - March 10, 2004 - Report this comment
That particular clip was from the British version of Family Feud, "Family Fortunes". How 'bout the clip where the host asked "Name a famous Arthur" and a guy rang in and said "Shakespeare!" :D
turkey - March 11, 2004 - Report this comment
I got a kick out of the time where the host asked, "Give me a slang word for money" and the old lady rang in and said "Bitch." Then the host asked, "How could you say bitch for money?" Old lady: "Mommy." Host: "Not mommy, money!!" Either way, it wouldn't make sense.

I saw that clip too. (I was looking at the latest comments and saw some talk about funny gameshow moments, so I thought I'd join in this discussion.)
turkey - March 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Which clip are you talking about, ellipsis?
... - March 11, 2004 - Report this comment
All of them. But I was referring to the one that was mentioned before I made my comment. I completely cracked up over the one time on the old version of Family Feud where Richard Dawson asked "During what month of pregnancy does a woman begin to look pregant?" and the contestant said "September." Then he tried to ask the same question to the next contestant and he couldn't go on! It was hilarious!
Who Cares About My Name - March 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Name a question, such as "How old are you", that most people might answer with a lie. They obviously misunderstood that one, since they gave answers like 18, 50, and "I would say, I'm 39". Maybe the question would have been better if rephrased.
dude - March 12, 2004 - Report this comment
if the decade ain't that important, why do you constantly b*tch about it then? look at the parody, not the URL
turkey - March 12, 2004 - Report this comment
To Dude: you're changing the subject. The parody is also listed in the index of the decade which corresponds to that in the URL (look at the left sidebar under "Song Parodies" where it says 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s ,2000s, misc. Who looks at those indices anyway?

Back to our discussion here: One time on Ray Comb's version of Family Feud, he asked "Tell me which way the smoke from your barbecue blows?" ANd a guy rang in and said, "The way of the wind." Ray: "Let me see, 'the way of the wind.'" BUZZ!
Who Cares About My Name - March 12, 2004 - Report this comment
The guy who gave these answers was obviously pretty dumb:
The price of a dozen roses: A dollar seventy-five.
An article of clothing that children are always losing: Their pants.
Besides a bird, something in a bird cage: Hamster.
mr. x - March 16, 2004 - Report this comment
One time on the current family feud (with Richard Karn), the question was "Name something you feel before you buy it," and the contestant buzzed in and said "Excited."
;;D
Joe - March 18, 2004 - Report this comment
I remember that clip, mr. x! How about the time on the British version when the emcee asked "Name something you stroke" and the contestant said "A match!" Stroke a match? He said stroke, not strike!

We've discussed some very funny clips from Family Feud. Now it's time to close this discussion.

Joe Tanna could have been renamed Dan Tanna, the character played by Robert Urich in Vega$. Great job!

Wow, we have a new topic for discussion now!

Thanks for the votes and comments guys. This is the first song of mine that got high numbers across the board. Usually I get mixed votes or nothing at all. Thanks.

Loved it. So what if the decade is screwed up, at least everything else is right. Anyway, five five five is what I vote on this.

Wow, 17 perfect votes on this parody! It must be really popular.

How do you know there isn't a person in the world named Joe Tanna? Maybe there is...

I don't care when this song came out; it's a fantastic parody! I can see why 24 people have voted 5-5-5 on it.
