The Lyrics

*This parody title doesn't actually make much since with the parody itself. It's actually inspired by the "Homonym Police" pointing out that I used the wrong word homonym wise(on a previous parody of this song). This parody is really a practice of using the wrong form of words in the lyrics(with asterisks by each one). Homonym Police, this one goes out to you. Have a fun! Enjoy!
Oh, the games we one*, while we had fun
all those games we one*, while we had
while we had fun

The swimmer in this pull*, gives me a tool
and the swimmer in this pull*, gives me a tool
gives a-me a tool

The guy, and the guy stands around
the guy and the guy, yeah....
the guy stairs* 'em down

Oh, the stakes* that cook, make my dog look
and those stakes* that cook, make my dog
make my dog look, yea..eah..

Ya..aa..aa..aa..aah

Ya..aa..aa..aa..aah

The buyer in this add*, sells me a pad
and the liar who will dye*, steals me a pie
when on this bus we'll stand.. stationery*
when on this bus we'll stand.. stationery*

And the bore*
the bore* stomps around
and the bore* and bore*
the bore* runs 'em down
and the bore* and the bore* and the bore*
the bore* stomps around
and the bore* and the bore* and the bore* and the bore*
the bore* runs 'em down

Oooooh......

Nah nah nah nah.. nah..
nah nah nah nah.. nah..

Now I'm board*
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
well, I'm board* in a town
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
now I'm board*, yeah I'm board*
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
well, I'm board* in a gown
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
will they when*?
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
can they when* while around?
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
will they when*, can they when*?
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)
They'll when* while in town
(nah nah nah nah.. nah..)

Nah nah nah nah.. nah..
nah nah nah nah.. nah..
nah nah nah nah.. nah..
nah nah nah nah.. nah..



*one = won. pull = pool. stairs = stares. stakes = steaks. add = ad. dye = die. stationery = stationary. bore = boar. board = bored. when = win. I know I didn't have to asterisk every wrong word, but I felt the need to. Comments?

Just want you to know that I was not the Homo Cop, despite my previous parody "There. Their, They're";... And the new submission on homonyms that appears Wed. 12 April was written and submitted before I saw this.
Teaching by negative example can be very effective and is really a clever twist. (yes, without the * some might have thought you didn't know better - good idea) DKTOS , but 5 for the idea and execution, and I'll trust you and the three knowledgeable souls above on pacing.

I'm surprised that the Homonym Police didn't comment on this. After all, they inspired the idea. ^___^
