The Lyrics

This song parody is about the classic TV show, "The Odd Couple." In memory of TV's Odd Couple: Tony Randall a.k.a. Felix (1920-2004) & Jack Klugman a.k.a. Oscar (1922-2012). And in memory of the movies' Odd Couple: Jack Lemmon a.k.a. Felix (1925-2001) & Walter Matthau a.k.a. Oscar (1920-2000).
They’re living together,
And don’t get along well
They’re Felix and Oscar,
They both fight and yell

Oscar plays poker with his friends
With Felix around (Felix around)
Oscar and Felix are divorced men
The Odd Couple’s in town

Odd Couple’s in town

Oh, this one guy named Felix
Always plays Mr. Clean
Even for Pigeon chicks
Those ladies aren’t so mean

But Oscar eats and smokes on the go
And litters the ground (Litters the ground)

**Felix says “Oscar! Oscar! Oscar!” while I sing the words “litters the ground”**

And Felix keeps on honking his nose

**Felix says “Hagh! Hagh! Hagh!” while holding his nose from sinuses, while I sing the word “nose”**

The Odd Couple’s in town

Odd Couple’s in town

Odd Couple’s in town (Odd Couple’s in town)

Oh...oh

***While the instrumental music plays, there are recorded lines of Oscar and Felix fighting and arguing in their apartment***

Odd Couple’s in town
Oh...oh

The Odd Couple’s in town

Odd Couple’s in town

Odd Couple’s in town (Odd Couple’s in town)

The Odd Couple’s in town
They’re living together
Odd Couple’s in town
And don’t get along well
The Odd Couple’s in town (Odd Couple’s in town)
Oh, the Odd Couple’s in town

***While the music ends, Oscar and Felix say the following lines:***

Oscar: Go to your room, Felix

Felix: Oh, come on. Stop it.

Oscar: I said go to your room, Felix.
If Jack Klugman really watched the music video of Europe playing "The Final Countdown" in the '80s, Jack probably said something like, "Whoever they are, they got long hair and they don't sound like The Beatles."

I'm surprised no one's voted yet anyway I saw a few episodes of "The Odd Couple" once not anytime recently but I do remember liking it and the OS is one of the greatest songs ever written/recorded a few minor pacing issues here and there but no big deal 455

Not the smoothest sing title sub to sing to, but nicely done, Dangerously. See also http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/thedrifters8.shtml
