"Really Really Pissed"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

In Australia (and elsewhere?) "pissed" means drunk, whereas in the US it also means angry, I believe.................but in this parody it means "drunk"
my wife's cousin's wedding - boy!
what a bummer!
but baby I promise you this
if I could turn back time...
to that DAY
I would not've got
....really really pissed

Guess I shoulda shut my mouth
through the speeches
but they were hila-riISS!
it's funny how those gags...
seem much funnier
when you are
.....really really pissed

[bridge]
agreed I
should've thought twice
before sucking gin through that straw
it wouldn't
've been so BAD if
the dais wasn't so high off the floor

How could I control my stomach's
inclination
to e - ject that gin (and all those bits)
they shoulda made her DAD...
read the telegrams
coz I was
....really really pissed

(instrumental)

yes, I'm gonna have to write
her a letter
and what can I say - but this
I ruined your big day!
I am sorry
but I got
....really really pissed

t'was totally remiss

(um)

to GET really pissed

Yes, usually means angry here, but the expression "piss drunk" is common here. Well done...I'll drink to that (and hopefully not have an ejectgin later!)

thanks Jeff - when I first thought of the title, I was originally going to go with the American meaning, but I was scared my two fellow wombats might jump on me

thanks alvin and John

thanks Kristof - the booze is the best thing about many of them - and now I'm reminded of that Aussie play "Dimboola" for some reason - oh, and don't read my response to Jeff

Michael Pacholek - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Unfortunately, the Polish Prince can't take credit for this one. It was by Brian Hyland. When you credit a song to a performer other than the original, you should say so in the opening comments, and perhaps why. (I did this when crediting a "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" parody to the Four Seasons rather than their fellow New Jerseyans the Shirelles.) So this five-worthy parody has to be docked a point. But having recently survived my sister's wedding, I understand completely.
Editors Note - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Pacholek, you are way off the mark for docking this. TheFirst line clearly states.....Based on the PERFORMANCE by....not based on the original performer, or the song's author. And since many cover songs are very different from the original, one must judge from the PERFORMING artist, not the original. Whether or not you need to claim the original performer is optional, just as naming the songwriter. To dock a song for this reason is ridiculous, but coming from someone as anal retentive as yourself, very understandable. It is why you don't get as many votes on your parodies as you otherwise would...you're very irritating, and unlikable with your superior attitude, which is much ado about nothing.
Stuart McArthur - June 17, 2005 - Report this comment
phew, I wouldn't go that far, Editor - I like MP's parodies, and MP - but I do agree with your first point - I once (correctly) credited Santa Esmeralda for "Don't Let Me be Misunderstood" and not the original artist "The Animals" because I used his cover version which actually had an extra verse - which as you say is the exact reason the word "PERFORMANCE" (or on the draft page "PERFOMANCE") is there. The fact that you decided to explain your decision when you did it Michael doesn't automatically lock that in as a rule set in stone for the rest of us to follow - but thanks for the 4s anyway

thanks also Red Ant, Rick C and Paul:-)
Ladybug - June 18, 2005 - Report this comment
I have to admit I am surprised by MP comment (as well as Stuart agreeing with it!), since as someone already pointed out, the parody heading clearly states "based on the performance by...". Since when are writers 'supposed' to use the top comments to indicate the 'original' artist? And even if that WAS common practice, I don't understand how not doing that takes away from the parody itself (although of course anyone can score however they want, and at least MP explained himself).

Anyway, this was pretty funny Stuart, but you were inconsistent in the way you capitalized the beginning of lines and sometimes you used four dots for an ellipsis instead of three, so I can't give you more than a 454.
Stuart McArthur - June 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Ladybug, you misread my comment (if you're being serious??)

Read my comment again and you'll see I was agreeing with Editor's Note, not with Michael - and consequently agreeing with you. In fact your point is the point I just made. And to further my point, I think pauses in long lines should sometimes be indicated by line breaks, but that's my rule, and if Michael doesn't follow my example I would consider myself arrogant if I docked him points for not following me

and I know you're just being facetious, but yes I do capitalise sometimes to aid pacing, and sometimes a three-dot ellipsis feels, I dunno, one dot short.....

anything to help the reader out
(we martyrs are like that....)

To the Sour Note: If you're wondering why I sound so superior, it's because you're so inferior. Let me put it another way: Most people know the Brian Hyland version. If Bobby Vinton also had a Top 40 hit with it, that's understandable. But no one else ever has. It could be worse: Stuart could have credited "The Star-Spangled Banner" to Roseanne Barr. Or even Carl Lewis.
Stuart McArthur - June 18, 2005 - Report this comment
it's still just your rule, Michael, and you're docking me for not following your rule
Sour Note Too - June 19, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, everyone has the right to be a curmudgeon, Mr. Pacholek, but did you dock this other Sealed With A Kiss parody the same way?

http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/bobbyvinton0.shtml

Since the votes were wiped out, only you know for sure. But I beg you to reflect on this carefully, and be honest with yourself. You owe it to yourself. God bless you, Mr. Pacholek. And you too, Mr. McArthur. May you find relief from your need to overconsume the devil's brew. 5/5/5.
Sour Note Too - June 19, 2005 - Report this comment
Actually, now that I pay closer attention to the date of Mr. Pacholek's comment on that other SWAK parody, I notice that his comment came AFTER the vote wipeout problem, so the one vote that shows, the 5/5/5, must be his.... so sad to see he's not being consistent. Oh well, on the bright side, a little controversy makes good publicity!

Shut up, Sour Note Too and all the other troublemaking fascists. Let's not start in again on telling other people how to vote. Give it a rest.

Hahahaha good stuff Stu, It's pretty rare to find a wedding that doesn't have at least one person getting pissed. Anyways I haven't heard this song in years, I remember hearing Jason Donovan's version when I was 8, recently downloaded the song, great to hear it again. Anyways your version is hilarious, all 5s!
Stuart McArthur - August 14, 2006 - Report this comment
Hey, Troy - good to see you again! Thanks for the 5s mate and I share your sweet memories of Jason's effort with this OS (got a lot of time for Jason, as I suspect most Aussies have, deep inside) - I love a wedding for that express purpose, getting really really pissed - although I'm less enthusiastic about having to read the telegrams...

(AGES) . . . .wow, and all this time I was judging parodies on wether or not they are funny and pace well--I don't even really pay attention to spelling much less punctuation. . . the comments are almost as interesting as the parody itself, keyword--almost. . .well I hit all fives, but not because it is easier, but because I learned something new today. I love Australia, though an American, I've always wanted out of America, and Australia being a country that speaks my language has always interested me. For what it's worth, this parody would have been funny with either meaning of pissed. . ."to GET really pissed" could be interpreted either way, but it works better meaning drunk in the sense used. I wish I could get pissed--but then my ancestry is 70% german and 20% Irish--so I have a high tolerance to beer which I don't like because of it's taste, and mixed drinks take a long time just to reach tipsy (which is fun) . . .Great song Stu, and thanks for the Australian Slang Lesson, It's not as fun as Fag meaning Cigarette in the UK, but fun none the less.

Very funny, "t's funny how those gags...seem much funnier when you are.....really really pissed" reminds me of a Toby Keith song called "You Ain't Much Fun Since I Quit Drinking" (that's a compliment).

(ABC) Aside from the misuse of ellipses, capitalizations and alcohol, this parody is very funny. The line, "it wouldn't 've been so BAD if the dais wasn't so high off the floor" made me think, "Stuart is so good at this, I hate him!" :-) 555
