Song Parody Fragments:

"It's My Party"
Better Lyrics:
Nobody knows where my Severus has gone
Evans left the same time
Why was his arm round her waist
When he's supposed to be mine?

That's a horcrux, and I'll die when I want to
Die if I have to, the way I want to
You would die too if Snape euthanised you
Original Lyrics:
Nobody knows where my Johnny has
gone
Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine?

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"You Don't Own Me"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Just let me be myself.
That's all I ask of you.
Why They're Insincere:
Yeah, sure. The whole song is a sullen litany of one demand after another. Yet the singer still has the gall to afffix to the last demand, 'That's all I ask of you.'!
Submitted by: Carla Jorgensen
"Judy's Turn to Cry"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Judy kissed some other guy;
He [Judy's date] turned around and he hit him
To show he's a real lovin' guy!
Why They're Insincere:
The 'rime riche'' ('guy' rhyming with 'guy') is not the issue. The girl Judy tests her boyfriend by kissing some other guy! So what does her date do? He hits the other guy rather than reprimanding Judy for flirting! this is loving?
Submitted by: Doug Montgomery

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Judy's Turn To Cry"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Oh, one night I saw them kissin' at a party
So, I kissed some other guy Johnny jumped up and he hit him
'Cause he still loves me, that's why
Why They're Inappropriate:
This was typical behaviour for the early 60's. Revenge kissing, followed by violence! You gotta wonder what the guy thought the next time he saw her coming down the hall...'Oh crap, here comes that psycho beotch Lesley! She got my butt kicked by her cheating boyfriend!'
Submitted by: Johnnyrock
"You Don't Own Me"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I'm young and I love to be young.
Why They're Inappropriate:
What does this have to do with the rest of the song or its haunting taunting message? Is she planning on being okay with someone owning her when she's older?

Opening Lines:
You don't own me, I'm not just one of your many toys.
Comments:
"You Don't Own Me" was a #2 hit for Lesley Gore in February 1964, ending up just behind the Beatles, who owned the #1 spot with "I Want To Hold Your Hand" during the two weeks that Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" stayed at #2. "You Don't Own Me" was written by John Madara and David White. "You Don't Own Me" is also very ahead of it's time, for what Lesley Gore sings about. Remember that 1964 was eight years (and nearly nine in terms of the calendar of these two hits being #1) before 1972 when there would be Helen Reddy's "I Am Woman" being #1 and even three years before Aretha Franklin's version of "Respect". Lesley Gore certainly matches in intensity Helen Reddy and Aretha Franklin on "You Don't Own Me" in intensity that she's demanding to stand on her won without the guy putting on her display.
