Song Parodies -> "Your Bosses' Notes To Get Paid"

Original Song Title:

"Your Horoscope For Today"

Original Performer:

Weird Al

Parody Song Title:

"Your Bosses' Notes To Get Paid"

The Lyrics

This was agonising trying to parody well. I will never attempt a Weird Al song again... except maybe Albuquerque...
A courier:
Unravelling the package is a fringe benefit known as 'baksheesh' to us.
Fill your load with some metallic weights- they're paying by the pound and this spleen just don't weigh.

Psychics:
Try to avoid petty words about details, stick with occultish trifles!
You tell a soothsayer's forecast, no matter what those scientific jerks say.

Juries:
The hooker who's raped will despise yas, when you find 'Not Guilty: that footy player's sperm was stolen!' Make rude faces at the entire court and flick a nickel for Verdict Three.

Door guys:
Your new threshold has blue flappy bits, but you wanna go buy a doormat. At bars your pick a scuffle with baked drunks. Throw a punch, feel buff and macho packing heat..

They're your bosses' notes to get paid. Yay yay yay yay yay.
They're your bosses' notes to get paid.

German Guide:
You first day starts off with some tourists flaunting yen, and all their sushi condiments. Then some guy will make your knees tremble, with a goosestep, Luger and swastika on his chest.

Dancer:
You audition was stupider than a fat Cupid in a dress, with a beak, racing through a pub. Why not talk up your role in Swan Lake (even though you make it for five mere steps.)

CEO:
How is it a good scheme: Kyoto poppycock stuff from people who are just cross of waste? Say no. Treaty? Fuck it, polluting nature wouldn't stop Russia's towns, saves a million more for merry pricks.

Servo:
All Servo Stations aid the Bentleys, pump their gallons and accept their dues. Ignore the little guys all day, then just light up when you calibrate a smashed Buick..


They're your bosses' notes to get paid. Yay yay yay yay yay.
They're your bosses' notes to get paid.

Now you may cry it's real unethical to spit stereotypes. Oh, it's not right to simply tell us that professions from the senate to a bar have intentionally got sycophants; with training that criminally apprises stealing dough and then cheating on your insurance with fake leg casts and convictions that the place was full of Thai artifacts lost within 'the incident'. It's truthful that some people lie and borrow work materials and every single job, occupation and craft's imbued with these guys!

Sweeper:
A swig of potion will call the town coroner- that bottle harboured antiseptic fluid! Gutters are the sweeper's best assistant. Abandon that damn disinfectant cask- it leaks.

Corpse Cleaner:
The dead are such a fun, respected group- it's a ball grooming them
with blue eyeshadow! Quirks: a brittle limb's harder to get moving down clothes, belt it weak. Use tools like stakes.

Quack Psychologist:
Your clients all have tissues while they squawk... BILL THEM. Fake frowns almost make your lectures expert, authorizing false sheepskins in your den.

Rapper Dawg:
Your hos say that your rap writing and colourful cursin' deserves "going Iron." The vile abuse of 'f***ing whores and bitches' is clever, clever, clever, clever, clever. Keep your mouth runnin'!

They're your bosses' notes to get paid. Yay yay yay yay yay.
They're your bosses' notes get paid.
They're your bosses' notes to get paid. Yay yay yay yay yay.
They're your bosses' notes get paid.

I haven't been here in months, and I must say that this parody (the first that I've seen since returning) is absolutely amazing and reminds me how great the parodies on this site can be. 5-5-5

Thanks Big Red, I would have thought this would be swamped by Weird Al aficionados, whom I thought would be teeming throughout this site, but obviously not. Did you know that licking those foil Big Red wrappers and stickig them to your face for an hour leaves it looking like you've been boiled?! Fun for all!!!

(SOTM) Ill have to admit that this one is totally above my head. Some obviously clever wordplay, but I just dont get it.
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - August 03, 2004 - Report this comment
I was just playing on the stereotyped occupations; the psychic is a fraud, the courier breaks everything and nicks off with stuff, the servo guy only serves petrol to rich people etc. I always try to parody as many of the words per sentence as possible, which usually results in ineligible waffling.

I think it's on the same album on Amish Paradise etc. I did it from memory.
Ahnonamis - August 08, 2004 - Report this comment
For doing it from memory that's amazing. I just listened to the original, the pacing is a little off in a couple verses, but not much. 4-5-5
Adagio - August 08, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I don't know the original either, but it's very interesting! :)

Very tough to go head to head with Al. But you did well.
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - August 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Ahnonamis (a possible relative of my 'Hairy Potted' character Anne Onimous?) Adagio, BLO-TOWN and Rick D. I only know about a half dozen of the Al man's works but those I do I know nearly off by heart. Reciting Albuquerque often results in me going off into even more random tangents when I forget the words.

SOTM - Very impressive.
Johnny D - August 09, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM July) Yowza! That took a lot of work to write!
Agrimorfee - August 09, 2004 - Report this comment
You scare me sometimes JARLB, with your songwriting abilities--and the ability to recite "Albuquerque". Oi gevalt! Anyway...this deserves two or 3 readings to really get at...in the same way one needs to read a passage of Joyce's "Finnegans Wake", or hear a Firesign Theatre sketch a few times to "get it". Cool stuff on an obscure tune (not one of my fave Al originals). 555

Thanks Leo! JD and Agrimorfee: I will attempt to use 'Yowza!' and 'Oi gevalt!' somewhere in upcoming parodies, they are truly whizzbanging expressions. I tried recitiing Albuquerque just now and ended up with my protagonist orbiting Uranus. A fun game for all: as soon as you forget the words just make up stuff.

Phil N- I gave up trying to be funny after that eventful moment after conception. Dee Range- I'm a masochist. Bring it on. Melhi- Your feedback was too short! ;) K1CHYD- Thanks, let me know when you've wiped, too.

Kind of impressive... if really rather odd :-)

I'm speechless. Almost. I have a feeling that you really gotta know the original to fully appreciate your wordplay. Either that or you've simply been chewing too many eucalyptus leaves.
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - August 24, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm speechless, cuz I'm trying to pick thes damned wads of masticated eucalypt leaf from the roof of my mouth. Thanks, Spaff, if people knew Eminem they would truly hold me up on a pedestal. (Disregard 'Luke Yourself', it was my first effort and probably the only song of his that people might know) Thanks Phil A!!
