The Lyrics

From the "I-Can't-Believe-No-One-Did-This-Before" Department.
I was rummaging through our clothes closet
Found my favorite dress shirt, thought I lost it
Wore it at my first job, it still fit me
Walked up to my wife, said "Look at me!"

Don't think that I don't have household knowledge
I learned how to wash my clothes in college
Wifey said something that struck me cold
"Throw out that damned shirt, it's much too old

And it has ring around the collar!
You've got ring around the collar!"

In the '70s, Wisk got its fame
From that annoying ad catchphrase
It was quite the revelation
To find my fave shirt in this condition

'Cause I got ring around the collar
I got ring around the collar

So what is the best solution for me?
Googled on the 'net, got folks to help me
Take a toothbrush, smoosh it with a shampoo
Scrub it on the area a minute or two

And you'll stop ring around the collar
No more ring around the collar!
No more ring around the collar!

555, and thanks for the handy household hint! I may never hear this song the same way again...

certainly an improvement over the OS

I swear you based this on a conversation in my hosehold! Where's the hidden mic, Agri? :)

I can see a whole new genre of parodies being created. Anyone want to tackle "Please don't squeeze the Chramin" or "Where's the Beef?"

Clever rather than LOL funny, Agri...but still well deserving of 5s.

(ABC) Agrimorfee: You surely are the Lord of the Rings!

Worth a bling.

Not a big fan of the Police, but this definitely goes under the "Why wasn't this done before?" category. Nice work!

(ABC) A few pacing mishaps (I think, it's hard to tell with the way Sting sings), and not really LOL funny, but this was still pretty good, worthy of 555!

(ABC) I like the story, not over-the-top funny, but still good.
