The Lyrics

Here in the U.S., it's time for spring break. That means it's time to....
Sing of Thongs

Sing,
Sing of thongs,
On the beach
They're just wrong!

Sing of G-strings,
Not abs!
Sing of back meat,
Not flab!

Sing,
Sing of thongs,
Naked people
Aren't half as crass or wrong!
Don't worry, just use your good binocs
So anyone else can't hear
You sing,
Sing of thongs!

La lala lala
La la lala lala
La la la lala la la

Sing,
Sing of thongs!
Dedicate it
To Mr. William Tong!
Don't worry that it's not crude enough
For AmIRight elfs to hear!
Just sing,
Sing of thongs!

La lala lala
La la lala lala
La la la lala la la

La lala lala
La la lala lala
La la la lala la la

Sing,
Sing of thongs,
On the beach
They're just wrong!

Sing of G-strings,
Not abs!
Sing of back meat,
Not flab!

Say,
Ain't it fun
Ain't it sinful
To snap that hole and run?
So hurry, let's spank those puddin' butts
And get the hell out of here
And sing,
Sing of thongs!
Just sing,
Sing of thongs!

I believe this song was originally by the Carpenters...?

Bob, I don't mean to be a dufus, but are you saying that you'd rather see naked people than people with a tiny bit of clothes? I'm not making a judgment, I'm just wanting to understand your line of thought here.
Bob Gomez - April 16, 2003 - Report this comment
Hmmm..I thought it was by Joe Raposo. I'll have to check on that. And Royce, yes, it is the narrator's (not necessarily my) view that naked people are more aesthetically pleasing than people in thongs. Just a silly thought.

Thanks for the explanation, Bob. Your parody at least jiggled some wires in my brain--are you and the narrator two different people? (I have a feeling this conversation could get very involved-sorry I'm just a curious slob)
Bob Gomez - April 16, 2003 - Report this comment
Yes. The narrator is my creation, but is not me. The narrator is a fictitious character. Sometimes parody is more effective, I think, when a quirky narrative voice is created, or a real person (Bush, Cheney, etc.) is assigned as the imaginary singer. In this way, the beliefs and actions of the narrator are the objects of satire. That's how I see it, anyway. Have fun, keep writing!

Olvan, you gotta remember, the Carpenters covered everything, from "Ticket to Ride" by the Beatles to "Reason to Believe" by Tim Hardin to "Please Mr. Postman" by the Marvelettes, with which they actually hit Number 1. Somebody once said that if record producer Phil Spector had a Wall of Sound (no doubt to cover up gunfire), then Richard Carpenter built a Wall of Mush. That somebody had no idea how right he was.
