The Lyrics

If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd write you a song ( I would write you a song,
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
write you a parody for your song
(maybe a nice yesteryear or a current one)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I would write about a k-car ( a nicely rhyming automobile)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,) ask Am I right?

if I was Phil alexander,
I'd write a song about your yard
If I was Phil Alexander
maybe make a joke ot two, it's not that hard
maybe I could put a refrigerator in there
(that would be fabulous)

If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd write about fur coats ( but not a real fur coat, not cool)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd rhyme stuff about exotic pets
like a rhino or an elephant
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd rhyme with John Merrick's remains
(there's those crazy elephant songs)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)ask Am I right?

If I was Phil Alexander
we wouldnt have to write a song no more
If I was Phil Alexander
I'd write a million, and none would be a bore
If I was Phil Alexander
I wouldnt write about Kraft dinner
( Of course I would, I'd just write more
and make up real exotic stories about it
that's right, all the fanciest rhymers.. dijon schmijon....mmmmm

If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd write about your dress (but not your big fat ass, that's cruel)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd rhyme about some zite ( like an acne or a carbunkle)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil alexander,)
I'd rhyme something with monkey maybe I could use funky)
If I was Phil Alexander (if I was Phil Alexander,) ask Am I right"
If I was Phil Alexander
If I was Phil Alexander
If I was Phil Alexander
If I was Phil Alexander

I'm touched ;-) Haven't voted yet, as I don't know the original - but I'm going looking as soon as a I have some time... been out of the office for a week, so haven't had any internet etc. and have a s**t load of catching up to do both work-wise and parody-wise.

It could have been funier, although, this is a hard song to make funny. My grammer sucks. Umm...pacing. You skipped acouple lines, and added a couple that are not actually in the song.
