The Lyrics

I'm a huge fan of the X-Files (there's even a Facebook quiz that I created called "What X-Files Character are you?" Check it out and see what kind of whack job I really am.). This is the first in a series of character parodies from the X-Files; a series I hope to have done around 2011!
Anyhoo, here's the first one featuring Scully, the scientific sidekick of Mulder.
Pronunciation guide: Frohike is pronounced FROH-hik-ee.
Scully
Unexplained phenoms must be explained
Scully
You seem to be Fox Mulder’s ball and chain

Oh, the dark shadows come
With the answers so near
Our Scully finds
No ev’dence here

Oh, Scully,
Facts, when few,
Won’t sway you.

Scully
Skinner tends to keep wolves at bay
Scully
There’s a smoking man who blocks your way

Mulder extrudes,
From facts so small,
Theories obscure.
He’s so enthralled

Oh Scully
Though aloof
He’s no goof.

Scully
See the lonely gunmen on the case
Scully
Mel Frohike wants to lick your face

You are the one
Odd creature’s love
See them enjoy
Your latex gloves.

Scully
For your truth
You need proof.

Scully
Bodies on the slab hold truths unseen.
Scully
Did you see the worm in that guy’s spleen?

Your life is torn
Tween faith and fact
Even when tall
Green goons attack

Scully
One more clue
We love you.

"Classic" episode one of these parodies from you, Warren! Loved it. The Mel line was the best!!! "Write" on!!!!!!

Awesome job! I only have a passing familiarity with Scully but I'm intrigued by the Jack Shephard / John Locke dynamic she seems to have going with Mulder. Lots of great lines - that worm one made me squirm!

Warren - I agree with Bil. though I didn't squirm instead I LOLed. You gotta watch that Scully, she'll put you in stitches.

I must email another AMIRIGHTer that digs the X-Files who hasn't been seen on site by me in a while. I have the email so I will advise of these X-file gems.

First Mulder, now Scully! This is as good as it gets! The X-Files in my strikes again. When I was a senior in high school, I found myself wishing that I was in Scully's shoes so I could be with Mulder/David Duchovny. I may try writing one of my own someday. Thanks for continuing Mark's X-Files saga as well. Here's some paranormal 5's. Gillian Anderson rocks.

You should check out my XXX-files! [seriously, a nice job here!]

Great follow-up to yesterday's gem. Now write one about the Cigarette Smoking Man. ;D
Marlboro Man - July 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Yeah, write about me, please, please, please!!!

Mark- Really glad you liked it. I'm working on another one at this very moment. Hope to have it done by morning.
Bilbopooh- Thanks for your thoughts. The relationship between Scully and Mulder is classic on many levels. May I suggest a visit to the X-Files vaults (don't start with the last 2 seasons...not up to par at all). If you like relationship dynamics, they're worth a watch.
Guy- Spoken like an X-Phile! Thanks for v/c, and hope your friend likes the recent postings.
Christie- Thanks for the v/c, and have you seen Gilian recently? Wow! She has aged very gracefully.
Vin- Thanks, bald guy. Haven't seen the film, buy may check it out.
OMR- Thank you sir! I've already got the tune picked out for that black lunged SOB. Just gotta write it.
Marlboro Man & Scully- Cigarette man only smokes Morleys. Were you thinking Don Johnson perhaps?!
Scully - July 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Warren - Don't tell anyone because this is top secret. The "Marlboro Man" is FBI code speak for the Cigerette Smoking Man. Only Skinner, Mulder and I know this. Whatever we call him he's still monkey pee.

If you are a Facebooker, the quiz is entitled: What X-Files persona do you have? Try the below link, and if it doesn't work, you might want to try a search in the quiz section.

I must confess, I never watched the X-Files... So I can't really appreciate all of the references. I must say I'm curious to know about the "latex glove" line... :)
WarrenB - July 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Scully- Of course I knew that. Rat Boy told me! Just didn't want 'civilians' to know.
FG- Hehe! Good to hear from you. It's a great show, and worth a watch. The first 4 seasons are quite good.
Guy @ FG - July 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Scully is an FBI agent and also has a medical degree and can perform autopsies - thus the latex gloves. She often does her own M.E. work on the show.
Tommy Turtle - July 15, 2010 - Report this comment
YAY! You found a show that although I don't watch, I'm aware of the main character's names, and an OS I know! (Glory, Glory Hallelujah plays in bg) "Knowingly" voting X-V at last!

@ Fiddlegirl: Don't believe Guy. Those latex gloves are for exactly what you think they are. Now, just put your feet in the stirrups and relax, this won't hurt (me) a bit....

What a great idea for a parody, and inspired choice of OS...I used to have the hots for Gillian Anderson big time in my younger days. 555

Nice thumbnail sketch describing Scully, fully..
WarrenB - July 18, 2010 - Report this comment
Oops! Missed these original comments. Sorry about that.
TT- "Hooray!", he said. But like the life of the gastrotrich, the moment was shortlived. Hence, "The Morley Man." (sigh).
Kristof- Much appreciated. The OS was a very nice fit. BTW, Gillian's still looking sharp these days. Thanks for the v/c!
AFW- Thanks, AFW for the v/c. She's quite a dame.
