The Lyrics

It has ben a LOOOOOOOOONG time since I have submitted. I finally found the time to finish this one.My wife and I actually were in a test market for a piece of exercise equipment that is going to soon show up on late night TV. So who knows.....Maybe one day I will be an infomercial star......... :)
Flippin through the channels
on T.V. at night,
Saw those lacy curtains
They were clean and bright,
Years of dirt were gone
Oxy Clean is such a dream.

Bought myself a Flowbee
I just can't explain,
Hair cut with a vacuum and there is no pain
My heart skips a beat,
When I turn the T.V. on.
Everything I need,
Spray on hair to medication,
Juice man Junior
Needs no explanation
We can use it together aha,
Miracle thaw will last forever aha,

(chorus)

Infomercial star,
That is what you are,
Flash your pearly whites,
On T. V. at night,
Tout hair club for men,
and your "psychic friends",
And we can buy from each other aha,
Hear you droning on forever aha.

Got so many products
I don't know what's next,
Can't tell the difference between solo & bow flex
Maybe I'll just give in,
Twenty easy payments make my heart sing,
Nineteen ninety nine
Is all I have to pay,
Eighty bucks for shipping and it's there next day
Don't think I can wait
Till I get my hands on my new things.
I will buy and buy,
Think I'll stop, no sir not ever,
QVC rocks and it will live forever
We can try it together aha,
In any kind of weather aha

(chorus)

Infomercial star,
That is what you are,
Flash your pearly whites,
On T. V. at night,
Did "Miss Cleo" know,
That to jail she'd go?,
And we can buy from each other aha,
Hear you droning on forever aha.

Sale away
Oh come sale away with me

(chorus) ad nauseum

Infomercial star,
That is what you are,
Flash your pearly whites,
On T. V. at night,
I've got "buns of steel",
and a "deal-a-meal",
And we can buy from each other aha,
Hear you droning on forever aha.

Looks like you've been watching too much TV, CM. But it paid off. This is funny and insightful.

I'm so glad you liked it John. I was afraid that I might be a little rusty after such a long hiatus. I'm glad to know it made at least one person laugh....... :)

Thanks Stuart! It seems that they combined the entires from all weekend on one day. I actually submitted on Friday morning but it didn't show up till today. Hopefully it doesn't get totally lost in the mix. Glad you enjoyed it! :)

(SOTM) I was about to say something similar to what K1 said. Great job, Cookie-man.
Cookie-man - December 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks K1chyd and Melhi! Glad you both enjoyed it. I'm working on another parody right now but don't know when it will be done.

Very good parody, particularly the last verse. I hope you don't forget your amiright friends when you become a big infomercial star.
Spaff.com - December 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Just as fun the second time, Cookie-Brother. I've heard that the infomercials for Girls Gone Wild! are good enough to record and replay. Not that I would know, of course.

Thanks John and Spaff. Who could EVER forget my friends at amiright? :)
