The Lyrics

Amphigory:\Am"phi*go*ry\, n. [F. amphigouri, of uncertain derivation; perh. fr. Gr. ? + ? a circle.] A nonsense verse; a rigmarole, with apparent meaning, which on further attention proves to be meaningless. [Written also amphigouri.]Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
I just can't believe the song I wrote today--amphigory
Is the pacing right? Will it make the grade?-amphigory
Is it good as Spaff's? Does it present some laughs?--amphigory
Amphigory, amphigory

Red Ant and others have certain virtuosity--Amphigory
Aussies Luke & Stu, EmiLoca, Johnny D have glee--Amphigory
Amphigory, amphigory
The humor's high, watch John Barry fly!--Amphigory
Amphigory, amphigory
Some people Wannabemustangjockey--gee!
Song parody's a game, lyrics go insane
I just gotta play
Amphigory, amphigory
Amphigory, amphigory
Amphigory, amphigory

Allan Sherman, who art in Heaven, funny is thy fame
Sing songs re-spun , like Weird Al's done
For mirth and slight narcissism
Give each day our lyrics misheard, and forgive us our tripped pacings
As we forgive those who vote 1's against us
DKTOS is damnation, so deliver us mp3s
For Chuck's is the Web site with the humor and pop culture hereafter

Amphigory, amphigory...
Spoof it, spoof it baby
Amphigory, amphigory
Listen...

People may be rude
Or steal each other's food
At least we're cool at Amiright
Just follow simple rules
Please just don't be crude
Or obvi-ously rude
That's all there is for Amiright
Now you know the tools

Please don't be a prude
Rick Cormier's a dude
Plus Arwenn's there at Amiright
Just follow simple rules
Rick Duncan's a dude
And Adagio is cued
Up at that side called Amiright
Just follow simple rules
Amphigory, amphigory

Is Pacholek a god, or Pippin or Merry?
Lemmee tell ya...some people wanna write like Agrimorfee
Parody's our game, lyrics go insane
I just gotta play
Amphigory, amphigory
Amphigory, amphigory

funny as hell, and clever...and that's a great word, too...never heard that one

Per the Random House Unabridged: 1800-1810; French "amphigouri," equivalent to "amphi-" + "gouri": perhaps modeled on French equivalent of "phantasmagoria. "Amphi-," meaning "two," "both," "on both sides," is a prefix used in loan words from Greek. The "goria" part of "phantasmagoria" may derive from Greek "agora" ("crowd" or "assembly"), as in "agoraphobia." French "gourer" means "to blunder," or "to boob," in British English. So I've concluded that "amphigory" derives from "two boobs are a crowd." 15 assembled votes, BTW.

No, not offended, but has anyone else besides TT used "amphigoriously" in a parody, as a tribute to ya or otherwise?? http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/shelleyfabares2.shtml. 555

TT: no I don't believe anyone else in THE WORLD has. :)

DKTOS so I'm not voting this time, but one day Spaff will realise that "phantasmagoria" rhymes with "Longoria", God knows what amphigory/parody that will breed. :-)

ABC3A - Two DKTOS's in four songs so far. Oh well. This looked clever at least.

(ABC) Very clever, loved the Allan Sherman verse especially.

(ABC3) hey, I missed this one on posting - amphigory sounds a lot like agrimorphee - you could do a sequel - loved the take on the Lord's Prayer, which was what connected me to this OS I'd forgotten about, Agri - 555 (oh and thanks for the mention:-))

(ABC3) A lot of good stuff here Agrimorfee, not the least of which is working "Amphigory" into a parody. The Lord's Prayer was sweet too. 5s (and thanks for the mention).

ABC--oh I missed this when I was off on my little "break" from the site...but it's FABulous, Agri! Thanks for the mention, too!
