Song Parody Fragments:

"My Way"
Better Lyrics:
That Harry Connick is just a punk.
His record shows, he really blows
Can't do it My Way

Original Lyrics:
To say the things he truly feels
and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows
I took the blows
And did it my way!
Submitted by: Bill Porter (heard on the radio)
"Strangers in the Night"
Better Lyrics:
Strangers in the Night
Exchanging Pantses
These ones are too tight
What are the chances
That we'd be sharing pants
Before the night was through
Original Lyrics:
Strangers in the night
Exchanging glances
Wond'ring in the night
What were the chances
That we'd be sharing love
Before the night was through

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"I Get A Kick Out Of You"
The Funny Lyrics:
I get no kicks from champagne.
Why They're Funny:
I guess Frank could drink champagne without ever getting drunk? Depends how much of it he consumed.
Submitted by: Cory
"You And Me"
The Funny Lyrics:
Back when we were dumb
Why They're Funny:
Only just recently heard this song and struck me as funny, calling themselves dumb. It comes out of nowhere on the song
Submitted by: Blargg Rapids

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"The Best Is Yet To Come"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You think you've seen the sun, but you ain't seen it shine.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Since the Sun shines continuously, one can't see it without seeing it shine. Even if the Sun's light ever could go out for a time, the Sun would be quite invisible during that time, and no one would see it, since no other source of light in our solar system or its vicinity is anywhere nearly bright enough to illuminate anything so distant as the Sun to the point that it could be visible by reflected light.
Submitted by: Valerie Cameron
"The Lady Is A Tramp"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
She's always too early for dinner at eight.
She loves the theatre and never comes late.
She never bothers with people she hates.
That's why the lady is a tramp.
Why They're Nonsensical:
I've never been able to make any sense of this song. Who is the lady being referred to? And how do any of those attributes in the first three lines contribute to making one a tramp?
Submitted by: Natalie Lundgren
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"I Get A Kick Out of You"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I get a kick every time I see you standing there before me I get a kick through its clear to me you obviously don't adore me
Why They're Insincere:
Why he is still bothering with someone who clearly hates him

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Love And Marriage"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Love and marriage, love and marriage
They go together like a horse and carriage
This I tell you brother,
You can't have one without the other.
Love and marriage, love and marriage
It's an institute you can't disparage
Why They're Insulting:
I'll be blunt; this rather smarmy song rubs it right in the faces of gays.
Submitted by: Diddims
"My Funny Valentine"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Your looks are laughable, Unphotographable.
(also)
Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak,
Are you smart?
Why They're Insulting:
At the end of the song, the singer begs the woman to stay with him in spite of all the physical and intellectual faults he sees in her. Good luck!

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Nice 'N' Easy"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
The problem now, of course,
is to simply hold our horses.
To rush would be a crime.
Why They're Inappropriate:
The song's whole message is about not rushing it. So from that point of view, holding one's horses is clearly part of a solution, not the problem.
Submitted by: Alison Runyon
"The Lady Is A Tramp"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
She hates California --
It's cold and it's damp.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Since when is California noted for being cold and damp? Sure it's mountain heights can be cold, but isn't most of the state known for a mild to warm climate? And doesn't it have a lot of desert, including the driest in the United States?
Submitted by: Kirsten Abercrombie

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Let's Get Away From It All"
The Dated Lyrics:
We'll travel 'round from town to town,
We'll visit ev'ry state.,
I'll repeat, 'I love you sweet!',
In all the forty-eight.
Why They're Dated:
There, are, of course, fifty U. S. states now (It's been that way since 1959).
Submitted by: Regina Haniger
"It Was A Very Good Year"
The Dated Lyrics:
But now the days are short,
I'm in the autumn of the year.
Why They're Dated:
Frank died during the spring of 1998, so he he didn't even make the autumn of that year.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"My Way"
The Lyrics:
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out...
Why:
While this part of the song expresses past tense ("when there WAS doubt, I ATE it up..."), the word "spit" is in present tense. The correct form is: "I ate it up and SPAT it out".

Why:
The song has a great orchestral climax, but it sounds like a singing will just before this man dies.
