The Lyrics

"SBD" = "Silent But Deadly," a WMD--type of toxic gas much worse than those used by Saddam Hussein; there has been talk of adding a ban on military use of SBDs to the Geneva Convention. From heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching love ballad to butt-clenching and nose-stenching parody: The parodist's highest possible tribute to singer/songwriter Gene Pitney, who passed away 5 April 06. OS lyrics here. Midi here.
Is slipping away from me
And I'm so afraid
It's here with you to stay
Yes, my SBD's strong
And it's wafting your way

Burrito's gone
No longer can I hold on
Such a pity... Wow! --
-- This one's too much to bear!
Though my SBD's strong,
I'll pretend it's not there

My SBD's strong
I'll wait as long as I can
Sounds like ringing a gong
Or like singing a song
Abate it with a fan!

When you say, "Who cut cheese?"
I'll just hand you a line
I'll smile with ease,
"I don't know. It's not mine."
Believe me, I know, as I walk out and wave you "Good-bye"
How you're all gonna di - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie - ie!

Perfect. I know this OS well, was a big Pitney fan in the 60s. I even knew a guy who used to perform it melodramatically at parties. It was a toot, er, hoot! And so was this. 555s. Must check out some more of your Gene-ious.

I too was a big fan, and was very pleased to do the multi-tributes to Gene Pitney, even though it was a bit of an effort to write eight parodies at the rate of one or two a day for a week straight, in addition to the already-planned posts. Thanks for read/v/c, and of course I look forward to your commentary on the other Pitney tributes (as with all else) whenever you care to do so.

Incidentally, Airfarcewon (AFW) and TT found the same Pitney OS and same title switch to tribute Pitney on the first posting day after his demise. (Fiddlegirl and TT had the same thing happen after the Henry Louis Gates incident, which was actually a first step in our eventual joining of forces.)
