Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Well hung mosquitos and large bees that bumble
Fat yellow jackets that make me feel humble
Hornets and wasps with maneuvering wings
These are a few of my least fav'rite stings

Centipedes, silverfish, brown recluse hiders
Honeybees, horseflies and black widow spiders
Pinch bugs and ticks, and black leeches with clings
All make the list of my least fav'rite stings..

Diamond back rattlers as large as a panda
Mimicking rhythms of Carmen Miranda
Huge serpents saddled with scaled skin and rings
Adders, too, add to my least fav'rite stings..

When bedbugs bite
And big flies light
On my face or bod..
They all flash before me, my least fav'rite stings,
And I shout..out, OH, MY, GOD !!

Sand fleas and scorpions, porcupine needles,
Fire ants, wooly worms, some "Three-E'ed" beetles
A horny toad, on my hand, quickly springs
Chalk up some more of my least fav'rite stings

Jellyfish, stingrays, moray eels, and catfish
Don't care how small it is, won't de-hook that fish
Can't risk a wound that could keep me in slings
Try to a-vo-id my least fav'rite stings

Teetsy flies, brittle worms, calls from IRS
Positive testing for sexual virus,
Ninety bucks owed for some long distant rings..
All of them venom my least fav'rite stings..

But the painer,
Real no-brainer,
Perched at my top shelf..
Is the dude in dark shades..who thinks he is king,
Old "Rock has-been" Sting, himself..

Old "Rock has-been" Sting, himself..

You had me at "well-hung mosquitoes", and hilarious ending. Terrific job here!

Didn't realize there were that many things that could sting you - really liked the IRS in there and agree with your least favorite.

Hilarious - I first thought you'd spelled tsetse fly wrong but then I googled it and found the (imaginary) endangered African Blue Teetsy Box Fly.

Nicely done, won. I agree with your ending...Oh Sting, where is thy death? ;D

This is great, and the Carmen Miranda line was spectacular!

Hey, what was our sting, chopped liver? :D

Very fine write, although TT has had many Close Encounters Of The Friendly Kind with stingrays and morays. Details of an extended stingray meld were at one of his songs, "Pelagic", at which you've already v/c'd, so no plug link. Just hate to see them maligned. ...As for the rest ... yep! 555

Farce - This has been great digeSTING and the ending is the froSTING on the cake. Your JeSTING is most intereSTING. I'm stingin' 5X for this beauty. Well done and the Panda / Carmen Miranda couplet is over the top.

I hate mosquitoes because every summer, they damage my skin and I get lots of rashes from them. I call mosquitoes "vampire insects" because they like to suck human's blood. I always end up as their food supply! >( I also hate centipedes because they're scary and disgusting! Hope you don't end up with West Nile Virus from Tsetse flies. I also thought about this Jennifer Connelly movie "Phenomena" (aka Creepers) where she has the ability to communicate with insects. Great job! 555 and ditto at Guy's comment!

Super-duper 'Super-' stuff!

Very good! Makes me shiver. Being a Katrina survivor and having lived through weeks with all manner of insects surrounding me in blistering heat, out of control, and especially after the sun went down, these lyrics have special meaning to me. :-) 555 for the horror factor alone
