Song Parodies -> "My Love"

Original Song Title:

"My Way"

Original Performer:

Frank Sinatra

Parody Song Title:

"My Love"

Parody Written by:

Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

Fun trivia: OS "My Way" was based on an unrelated French song. Singer-songwriter Paul Anka heard it, translated it, kept the melody but changed the lyrics (anyone else here change the lyrics of songs we hear?), and custom-wrote it for Frank Sinatra. And the rest, as they say, is history... as the zillions of covers (Elvis, etc.) prove. ... Set a record (no pun intended ;) in the UK for spending 75 weeks in the Top 40.

*Excellent*-quality OS, Frankie crooning at his best, here. (And yet, the lyrics transcriber there *still* managed to make a goof -- go figure! ;)

Song being re-worked: "My Love".


My love - is warm and soft
And deeper than - the deepest ocean
As broad as sky aloft
Like sunshine's light, with bright emotion
Outglows the ev'ning star   [1]
That lights the night up in the sky, 'bove
There's naught in this whole world
That could change my love

What change, when I met you!
Had never felt - so strong, heart's tension
Does not - matter what I do
I think of you and love's ascension
Each day, I love you more
I thought, one time, I'd dare to try love
Much more than Earthly bliss
Can't change this: my love

Yes, there were times, I thought I knew --
-- I'd never find - love that would be true
I didn't think you'd come to stay
But I was wrong, I'm glad to say
Each day, I tell: in love, I fell
You brought love my way!

We've loved in rain and shine
We've cuddled close, so softly sighing
We've plumbed the ocean's depths
Beneath the sky, warm, we're lying
Eyes lit, like brightest star
And may I say, quite Siri-us-ly   [2]
"Oh, no; I'll never change. I love you thusly"

For what good is love, if it does not --
-- Combine our hearts, in naughty knot
The "starry skies" that Vincent sees
Those lovely words you say, that please
Our hist'ry shows each day, love grows
You can't change myyyyyyyyy love!

No, can't change ... my.... love


[1] "Evening Star" = Venus, second-brightest natural object in the night sky (after the Moon, of course); bright enough to cast shadows, and visible in the West after sunset. During or near the Full Moon, it often appears to be very close to the Moon as the latter rises in the East around nightfall, but so far, the two have never collided.

[2] "Sirius" -- brightest star in the night sky. (And yes, TT knows that the star is much brighter than the pun was, thank you. ;)

My, My, how everything is done "your' way, today! Welcome back..TT! You missed my little "fairy tale" the other day: http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/kansas82.shtml

Glad to see you back. I like the way you tossed in a reference to Don McLean's "Vincent", too. Looking forward to reading the rest of today's entries. You're right, too about "Comme d'habitude" by Claude François, it's a whole 'nother song.

"Sirius"-ly good to see you back "At-las". Is this a "Capella"? I'm glad that your comeback wasn't a pile of de-"Spica"-ble "Scheat". You must be strutting like a "Peacock". It's a "Phact" that AIR would be a "Sadr" place without you latest "Electra"-fying swap-'em-all-around "Phad", cAPeesh?

Mark Scotti: Glad you liked the theme! Thanks for v/c. Will add your song to "try to read" list, and if you get a chance, could you either drop me an email (click the blue underscore after the copyright, to do the captcha thing), or tell me if you have an account at inthe00s?

Patrick: It's always nice to be back; thanks for the welcome. Posting tomorrow (Thursday) also, then probably gone for a while again. Glad you liked the plug for one of my fave OSs, beautiful, that gets so overshadowed by AmPie. Thanks for v/c.

Alf Acrucis: Pun overload! Meltdown! Thanks for v/c, and yes, I cAPeesh. :-D

Sheila Blige (lol!): Ceres-ously? :) :) :) ... Hope the name similarity doesn't mean you're descended from Captain Bligh, else there might be Booty-me On The Mount-y -- a bounty of it. Thanks for v/c!

Belle: Umm, trying to earn a living in a very difficult economy? See reply to Patrick: It just can't be an everyday thing these days, alas.... Thanks for the welcome (had to think for a long time: Warner Brothers? Warren Baker? What Bulls**t?) and for v/c - glad you liked it!

Wonderful work, TT --ewe did it wry maaaate! And some truly cool trivia--gonna have to look up that old French song! Currently I'm stumped, trying to imagine the Venn diagram that would describe the super-chelonian feat you've accomplished today... something like the Olympic symbol inscribed inside a glowing halo would be fitting indeed! Fives for six!

TJC: A flow chart would be much easier: A > B, B > C, ... E >: F, F > A. ... *And* the parody titles, if listed alphabetically, flow exactly that way - deliberately.
          I had asked ChuckyG to post them in that order: My Bonnie - Dad - Girl - Guy - Love - Way, then finish with the "meta-smoosh". But the poor guy has so much to do already -- not complaining, believe me!
          Thanks for v/c, and I think today's (Thursday) have a better chance of being posted in flow order, as I made the road map a bit simpler and more clear for The Man. Still, he can't cater to everyone's whims on a 100,000+ page web site, so I'm just glad to get them posted. Thanks for the kind words!

Old Man Ribber: No, they're not! Each one of them is *my* word -- every single one, except for the ones with © or ™ in the outro.... (LOL) ... thanks buddy! :-D
