"Just A Severed Head / Ain't Got No Body"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Kind of a continuation of the Marty Feldman bit from Young Frankenstein. Ideally, the video would involve David Lee Roth having his head lopped off by Eddie Van Halen.
I'm just a severed head
So technically I'm dead
Somehow, though, I still keep singin'
A great big ma-chet-ee
Decapitated me
Oooooh, that was swingin'
But there will come a day
When I'll get put away
Hung up on some garage wall
It's the playground I dread
Cause I'm just a severed head
Not a freakin' dodge ball

I'm just a severed head
My pillow is my bed
And in the kitchen sink I've showered
From my body I've been pruned
Though it's only a flesh wound
Ooooh, come back you coward
If you shave off my hair
Then I'll have time to spare
So you can take me bowling
In the rat race I've sped
And I know that I'm a head
Now I must get rolling

Because I.....ain't got no body
No body breathes for me
No body pees for me
I......don't do no laundry
Won't some sweet mama come and
Make a hat for me?
Cause now I like hats
You know baby it's so gruesome all of the time
Buzzmebuzzmebuzzmebuzzme
lop!
Get a mop
Hey!
Humma la beeba la seeba la booba la
humma la beeba la seeba la plop

I....ain't got no body
No body mass for me
No karate class for me
I'm.....so roly-poly
Won't some sweet mama come and
scratch my nose for me?
Cause I got no hands

Go to the head of the class. All 5's. Today's absolute, #1, best entry! I love Prima. Did you know that he died of a brain anuerism??

I hate you, I hate you, I hate you. Sooooo many possible comments and none of them radio-friendly. ARGH!!! You did this on purpose, didn't you? ;) Hilarious!!! Loved it!

The "get a mop" line was sheer brilliance!

NoBody can beat this....but I think your pacing was somwhat off (when I did my parody I had to listen to the song 12 times to get it right lol)

Claude, my man, you've obviously offended someone who's had his head severed at some point and does not find this funny whatsoever. I on the other hand have never been decapitated and will give this all 5's.

Claude -- you are the Head Master! Rick read this to me while I was taking a bath because he couldn't wait to share it. Favorite line (among many): "Not a freakin' dodge ball" Do you watch "Futurama"? In that show, there are a lot of characters who are heads in jars. And have you seen Eddie in any interviews lately? Hmmm...

Damn, man. The garage wall/dodge ball rhyme is just one of many highlights. This has forever displaced the original in my brain.

Not one of your better ones, Chris. You shoulda quit while you were a head! (No, no, really, it was good, but somebody had to say it! Spaff is gonna kick himself for not thinking of it!)

Way to keep your head in the game, Claude!

What Spaff said. Even in the wake of you-know-what you-know-where, this still makes me laugh my head off.

Perfect! Great sentiment, combined with a shitty original song, made for a great parody !

Always clever, never disappointing. Good one, Claude. Reminds me a little bit of Allen Sherman's 'Old King Louie'

We're gonna take you and the queen
Down to the guillotine
And shorten you a little bit

That's brilliant Claude. Having recently done this one myself, I remember how hard it was to pace all the talky ranting stuff, but "my pillow is my bed" and "in the sink I've showered" were truly inspired - great stuff - 555
