"(He always plays the) Tough Guys"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

He always plays the tough guys
He brings the New York Mean Streets to your eyes
He plays the gangsta mack meat
In Meet the Fockers, he's still packin' heat

He'll always get the rough roles
In Raging Bull he put the pounds on roll by roll
In The Good Shepherd, he's threatening
Even when sitting there, instructing

That Robert DeNiro
He ain't no zero on the screen
In Goodfellas and Casino
He's too f_ing hardcore for the King of Comedy

RDN - Whattaya talkin' 'bout?

Y - Nothing. Let me finish this song.

RDN - In King of Comedy, I was scary AND funny. You sayin' I can't play other roles?

Y - No. I'm just mentioning your major ones.

RDN - Smatta witchoo?

Y - (singing) He sometimes plays the tough guys.

RDN- That's betta.

Y - He sometimes plays the tough guys
He can bring potholed and cobblestoned streets to your eyes
Played mafiosi or played priestly
He'll adapt both styles, freakily

RDN - You callin' me a freak?

Y - No. By that, I mean uncannily.

RDN - I know what that f_ing word means.

Y - Just let me finish the g_damn song!

RDN - Who the f_ do you think you're talking to?

Y - He'll rarely play the tough guys
Performing drag on Broadway's no surprise
He can f_ 'em in a Tu Tu
As the Fruit Of Loom grapefruit, he'll unpeel you


RDN - Guy's callin' me a f_ing faggot. Dis guy here's callin' me a faggot! (held back by bodyguards)

Y - Aaaah get f_d!

RDN - (turning red) Why you..You talking to me? I don't see anyone else around here. You threatenin' me?

Y - That old sh_t again? That routine's stale. When you come up with new material, give me a call .

RDN - (beet red, still held back by bodygaurds) Counselor, counselor, come on out counselor!

Y- You ruined my parody. Get f_d. Be a bouncer.

RDN - Mmmmmmff! (Trying to get in the last word)

Y - Now I'M THE TOUGH GUY! Get It, You Turd?
