"That's A No-No"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I've always found the rhyme scheme of the original to be awkward and irritating, so if you're a purist, avert your eyes as I have blatantly taken liberties to make it more fun to parody.
When the groom hits your eye, cause you felt up the bride, that's a no-no
When the love of your life, is found out by your wife, that's a no-no
When you go for a ski, and you’re trying to be Sonny Bono
Skooz-a me, but when we, go "beep beep" to a tree, that's a no-no

When you're meeting the pope, and you say “try some Scope” that's a no-no
When the cop wants your keys, and you make him say please, that's a no-no
When you're wife thinks she's fat, you say that's cause you snack down them Ho-Hos
May be true, but if you, do not like deep doo-doo, that's a no-no

When you ask for a dance, and then take off your pants, that's a no-no
When you buy a CD, that involves Kenny G, that’s a no-no
When your new boss looks gay, and you say, “it's okay you're a homo”
Tres bien, but my friend, in the end, you'll offend, that's a no-no

When you’re out on a date, and start licking her plate, that’s a no-no
Then take her to a flick, that’s called “There Will Be Dick” that’s a no-no
When she sings at the mike, you say “hey, you sound like Yoko Ono”
Debonair, but mon frere, do not dare to go there, that’s a no-no

Hilarious as usual, Claude. How is that working in the snow going? (I'm out there also, just in "sunny C"

I definitely echo John Barry's comment! I've always been "That's a no-no!" so many times by my parents and teachers whenever I did something wrong. If I had children of my own, I'd tell them what they did is a no-no when they do the wrong things. Great job! 5's

Pacing purist here, but, like you, I've found this song to have quirks that were kinda bothersome as well. Great throughout, but I really liked the rhymes with "no-no" and the quad rhymes in the last lines of each verse.
John Jenkins - January 09, 2009 - Report this comment
I have only committed two of the NO-NOs in this song, so thank you for publishing this Etiquette Guide for Dummies before I completed the list.

Excellent stuff, Claude, but what is the reason for zero parodies in 2008?

I love the way you worked in "Tres bien" and "Debonair, mon frere." I echo red Ant's comment, too. 555
I also like your mention of the Road Runner in the fourth line--JK! XD

Really? You're back? That makes my day. Good to see you again sir. Stay around a while. Very funny, but especially liked CD/Kenny G. lol

Thanks everybody. And John Jenkins: Do I have to guess which two? And as for my lack of productivity, I wrote a ton of AWESOME parodies last year, but my dog ate them. Actually, most of this one was written 2-3 years ago and I finally decided to finish it. I don't really have any others in the works at this time but the warm reception already has me mulling ideas so again, thanks everybody.

all class, Claude - gee, it's nice to see you and your parodies back - loved the Bono and Ono lines best but all the quad rhyme lines were brilliant - I also liked the inside gag of watching you try to come up with more no-no rhymes as the piece went on - as for the pacing decision, you already know I'm firmly in your camp on that one - an easy read allows fuller access to the gags, which are more fun for the reader than mere appreciation of an exact quirky one-off syllable-match - 555

So so so funny, Claude. I just loved every line, but "try some Scope” tickled me extra hard! GREAT work!!

Didn't get the "Try some Scope" line, but every other line in here was pure brilliance (And welcome to the podium you're instantly going to make it there)

SOTM...this one kills me, Claude. The Scope line made me LOL...again...even though I knew it was coming, and the bit about the new boss, too. =) Oh, and the whole freaking rest of the parody, while I'm at it.

This is going to get my top vote, and not that YOU need an explanation...but I will just say this, for anyone who's interested: While attempting a long and complicated OS (like many did in this round) is totally impressive...I will take something that is done to a simpler OS, (or something with simpler subject matter) that is just FLAT OUT HILARIOUS, every time. Gems like this are impossible not to love...and are easier to enjoy...I don't have to work as hard. =) And...that's about it. Thanks for being funny.

(SOTM) Basically what Arwen said. Great to see you back, and kicking ass too! 555!

(*SOTM*) Hope to see you in more contests, I am not necessarily a purist on keeping to OS, but as one who records I have to admit without totally redoing the backing track it'd be hard to record, funny all and all, a few lines were notably hilarious which helps to offset my opinion of blatant liberties:) "When your new boss looks gay, and you say, “it's okay you're a homo”". . .anyone who was part of that 'proper use of the word gay' crowd--here's a good example of gay being used in a way that doesn't use it in a OMG way, it's not offensive at all in this context, and with the next line is really funny.

I'm still glad to see you back, and still a fan of this parody.

SOTY...man, I really love my second comment on this. I mean, really...that says it all. I am the best commenter around. I can't believe myself. Oh wait...this is awesome, Claude. Still.

p.s. Yes...the Scope line STILL got me. That line alone is like the "Puttin' on the Ritz" scene from "Young Frankenstein." I can't NOT laugh.

Haha this was truly hilarious and the scenarios you came up with were all LOLworthy, esp. with the over the top nature of the OS.
