The Lyrics

Maybe if he'd looked more like Thomas Magnum and less like Barnaby Jones ... :-)
"A Marriage Diaster"

There is some thing that I hate for you to see
Altho’ getting it is why you’re paying me
It’s just some photographs confirming what you knew …

He’s been seeing your wife, Mr. Jones.
And he knows what she likes "on the inside,"
As she urges him aloud, underneath him or astride
With her moans.

Tho’ she plainly for years has fooled around
All my digging to date has only found
This one lover who, when you’re not home, instead
Gives her what she must be missing in the bed.

He’s been seeing your wife, Mr. Jones.
He knows well what she likes "on the inside,"
As she urges him aloud, underneath him or astride
With her moans.

(But I won’t describe the opportunity
That I vainly hoped these snaps had given me.
I told her you need never see them if she’d screw …

I was seeing your wife, Mr. Jones ...
Thought I knew what she liked “on the inside,”
But, alas, she wasn’t wowed, “Go on, show your stuff ,” she cried
"To Mr. Jones.")

I'm sorry, I saw "wife" and "Jones" and lost it... Anyway, cute story, and, to continue your analogy, he'd better have a lawyer who looks more like Mickey Kuzak than Ben Matlock!

Thanks, MIchael ... vraiment, je n'ai entendu pas faire une "double entendre" avec l'allusion à M. Jones. Semblablement, l'allusion aujourd'hui dans une autre parodie à un "johnson" a précisément le sens que la contexte suggère. :-) :-)

Nice take on a pre-schlock Bee Gees tune.

Ah - now I see. The first time I read it I was thinking it was some movie-actor reference. Thanks for clearing that up Stan. It's funnier now! :-)

Mercì, Merry. And, yes, I had no specific movie in mind here. "Mr. Jones" was the OS's narrator's addressee, and I kept him because I liked his name's rhyme potential. I _am_ tho, a great fan of the '20s-'50s noirish detective fiction, both mainstream and pulp, and of the cinematic analog that trailed by about a decades its progressive phases, and the lyric here does draw its inspiration from myriad stories in the genre. :-)

Very good parody, worthy of 5s, but I might have liked the parody better if the narrator was a real person.
