( --- keyboard & drums & rhythm guitar --- )

Woo-hoo!

Woo-hoo!

Here's Sir John, he's singing holy-glory!
Ah-lay-ah-loo-yah, may be what he say!

Here's Sir John, he's singing I gotta woman!
Up in the castle, trying to make a play!

He got the axe on, he got the sword, son!

Oh yeah, rejoice and pray!

Dedication!
Devotion!

Joining all the Knight-guys in the Crusade!

He's got a lotta doubt about his woman,
He's got a lotta doubt, alright ---

--- so she wears the Lock,
Wears the Lock of Wife!
Yeah, she wears the Lock of Wife!


Woo-hoo!


Here's Sir John, he battles well an' he's gorey!
And he's proud of sockin' dudes!

Here's Sir John, he win the power and the glory!
Hacked e--ven rocks in two!

He got the axe on, he got the horse, son!

Oh yeah, rejoice and pray!

Dedication!
Devotion!

Leading all the Knight-guys into the fray!

And when he thought about his lovin' woman,
He thought she oughta be alright ---

--- 'cause she wears the Lock,
Wears the Lock of Wife!
Yeah, she wears the Lock of Wife!


Woo-hoo-hoo!


Here's Sir John, he's singing holy-glory!
Ah-lay-ah-loo-yah, may be what he say!

Here's Sir John, he's singing I gotta woman!
Up in the castle, dying to make my day!

She wanted action!
She got in motion!

Oh yeah, the lock-smith's "paid" !

Dedication!
Devotion!

Freed herself when Knight-guy went on Crusade!

And after all his violence and chivalry,
He's just a dong whose prong'll shrivel due to strife

She threw a rock

At, the dude who'd lock a wife!

Yeah, the dude who'd lock a wife!

Ah-woo-hoo!

Woo-hoo-hoo!

Woo-hoo-hoo!

As one John to another, sir, I'd say you've locked in 5s.

Knights and crusades - This has got to be about chastity belts (if that's the correct term). I didn't know that Sir Elton John was around back then though! :-)

Excellent meatevil story...good for someone like Chastity Bono 5's
alvin rhodes - February 10, 2006 - Report this comment

Speaking of the Bonos, if Sonny were alive back then, he'd never get any. He always had the wrong key. Some great subs for the OS lines here, JD! 555

Belated thanks, John, Peter, AFW, alvin, Rick, Royce, and Michael.

THAT was unexpected! "He's just a dong whose prong'll shrivel due to strife" was my favorite line, among many.

ABC3 - I gotta join Red Ant with that one, DEFINATELY did not see it coming.
Cat - November 24, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC-L) And just when I was thinking how anyone could possibly make a song about chastity belts funny...you throw in a lovely Arwenesque twist! Excellent, JD, and it helps that the OS has always been a favorite of mine.

(ABC3L) I like this. Well done!

(ABC3) Chastity bono. 555

ABC3L-Great
Michael McVey - December 04, 2006 - Report this comment
Cute one, but one question: do they make chastity belts to keep OTHER GIRLS from making out with the damsel? That's more common than people realize, and it's every bit as bad in South America as in North America.----MM
Stuart McArthur - December 04, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3L) great idea, great execution, as always, JD, but the thing with your syllable-matching is that it makes the parody just such a breeze to sing - 555
Josh 2 - December 05, 2006 - Report this comment
slightly confusing, but 5s anyway
Matthias - December 06, 2006 - Report this comment
You locked me into your parody room, and the only key is this 5
