The Lyrics

A parody about buying book supplies. Jeff Reuben picked the original song that this parody goes to.
Oh, the pens that dry, make my books cry
and those pens that dry, make my books
make my books cry

The paper in your aisle, makes me a file
and the paper in your aisle, makes me a file
makes a-me a file

The shelf, and the shelf is abound
the shelf, and the shelf, yeah....
the shelf has it down

Oh, the books that file, make my stock pile
and those books that file, make my stock
make my stock pile, ye.........eah!

Yea...ea...ea...ea...eah!

Yea...ea...ea...ea...eah!

The folders in your aisle, gives me a dial
and the pencils in your aisle, gives me a dial
I know with her I'll find.. stationary
I know with her I'll find.. stationary!!!

And the girl
and the girl sells a round
and the girl, and the girl
the girl shows me how
and the girl, and the girl, and the girl
the girl sells a round
and the girl, and the girl, and the girl, and the girl
the girl shows me how

Aaaaaahhhh..........

Hate to break it to ya, but you used the wrong homophone. "Stationary" is an adjective; "stationery" is the noun. Nice concept for the parody, though; I like it.

Something wonderfully zen about this, Stephen. Loved it! 555

What Police and Kristof said. 5s. And I'm not making this up: I once encountered a stationary engineer who had a patch on his jacket reading "stationery engineer."

Dear Homonym Police, that's how it was spelled on english subtitles on a DVD I have at home(in describing school supplies), so either they messed it up or the dictionary is wrong. I use the library internet and don't a have own a dictionary at home, so the DVD was the only source I had when writing this parody, it's a word I haven't really used, and please use your real name instead of "Homonym Police", I want to know it from the real person. Thank you Kristof Robertson and John Barry, for your votes and comments.

Well done on the song, I enjoyed it. Just ignore the boneheads who waste their time writing comments about "homonyms" and decades but not the song itself.

Thank you, Jeff Reuben! Mr. Critic, you need to find something more constructive to do, you're boring me.
Mr. Critic - June 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Okay, I saw your "revised" parody. Or is it "revized"?
Stephen Harrington - April 13, 2009 - Report this comment
Well, it wasn't a revised parody. But instead a parody inspired by those grammer police posts. I'm surprised they didn't comment on it.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
