Parody Song Title:

"CROQUET!"

Parody Written by:

Loose Bruce Kerr

The Lyrics

{from "Loose Bruce" Kerr, a regular on the Dr. Demento Show}
(fade in: crickets)

1.
If you want to get down
and mostly stand around
CROQUET
If your life's berserk
but golf's too much work
CROQUET

It's so quiet, It's so quiet, It's so quiet
CROQUET

2.
If you're tired of squash
and even polo's a wash
CROQUET
If you're wife's affair
is with the butler, there
CROQUET
..If they do it on the floor next to your bed
while they think you're asleep..
CROQUET
....Perched on top of him
in total disregard of my
personal feelings in the matter,
whatsoever!
CROQUET

It's so quiet, It's so quiet
It's actually quite quiet!
CROQUET

(fade: crickets)

I half wrote this a while back but thought the original was too short. Well done!

I used to think he was saying Croquet too. But I think the butler and wife part takes up a few to many lines.
