The Lyrics

I divide parodies roughly into two groups. Those where I just use a gimmick and tune from a song to make another point entirely, and those where I try to write the lyrics as closely as possible to the original - but twisted a different direction.
Now I heard there was a secret spot, find it and you will please her a lot
But you don't really care for lovin' do ya? It goes like this, you probe you prod,
And until you hear her call "Oh My God!" The baffled guy was wondering "How'd I do ya?"
"How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?"

Your faith was strong but you needed proof, Her screams could almost lift the roof
The neighbors started wondering if she slew ya. She tied you to a kitchen chair
She had her way with you then & there, and there was no need to ask her "How'd I do ya?"
"How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?"

You say she took the name in vain, I couldn't tell if "twas bliss or pain,
But if I did, well really, what's it to ya? There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard, The spoken or the silent Hallelujah
"How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?"

I did my best, it wasn't much, I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
Her inner beauty really socks it to ya, And even though it all went wrong
I heard her purring her private Song, With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
"How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?" "How'd I do ya?"
