The Lyrics

OS lyrics courtesy of US taxpayers, via the US Government's Department of Health & Human Services, National Institutes of Health. Think I'm kidding? Click here. Midi here. Note: US Govt.'s OS lyric cited repeats "Do-re-mi" one time too many after "When you sing you begin with..." It was "good enough for Government work", I guess.
Let's toast someone very refreshing
A funny read, sharp and smart

When you read you desire
Best, no less
Guaranteed? You require

The best songs here just happen to be

P-M-S: ex-press fi-nesse

Oh, let's see if I can make it easier:

P: that stands for Par-o-dy
M: her Melodies are fun
S: for Songs she sings to me
P: for rotten, clever Pun
M: for Making up a thread
S: for vision she will See
We: laugh at what's in her head
So, we'll click our mice on "P"... M.... Ee -ess ...

P is Perv who fondles tot
M is Molsen beer on ice
S is af-ter-life of Scott
P is Plagued with body lice
M is Advil in the 'Morn
S is "S"-hole: many guys
P on internet is Porn
Now, let's do one more reprise

P for Par-o-dy of "ones"
M for Men-tal-ly ill guy
S for Sag-ging breasts and buns
P is makin' up a Pie
M: in biker bar, is Mom
S is lurker, She (or he)
P: she praises Pope in psalm
There is no "-M -s." like P-- ! [1]

P-M-S I con-fess: im-press; ... oh... yes!

[1] Pretty bad stretch even for Spiderturtle: "Ms." (lady) like "Ms. P";... and no "-M -S" like "P- ", i. e. like "P-M-S". (sorry.)

WOW! I am uncharacteristically speechless! Thanks! I so admire a man who does his research! I think "praises Pope in psalm" was my favorite line.

Ag, thanks... oops, I mean, Agrimorfee.... alvin, thanks... AFW, thanks ... Paul Robinson, thanks; yeah, right lol :)

TO: AGRIMORPHEE.......WTF SINGS......."YOU-R-SUCH-A-PE-DAN-TIC.....Y-DON'T-U-JUST-SUC-MI-DI**......­...Giving this funny, delightful, thoughtful, and caring tribute a 4 for overall is so pathetically pedantic that you insulted not only TT but PMS, too. First you plugged your pathetically pedantic parodies under TT's parody "PARODY 100" last Friday, without leaving a vote or a comment...and then this, no matter how you tried to couch it by saying "OTHER THAN THIS QUIBBLE, ANOTHER WONDERFUL TRIBUTE", is a majorly pedantic slap in the face to another parody that is MUCH BETTER THAN ANYTHING YOU HAVE EVER WRITTEN, OR EVER WILL WRITE, BY FAR. If this deserves a four for overall, your odiferous entry today was a 1-1-1, which I just gave it. I think it is safe to say you will not be getting a tribute from Tommy, but you can expect a little tribute from me soon. It too will be a little 'odiferous. Why don't you just quit commenting on TT's parodies. I'm sure he is too nice to tell you where you can shove it, but I'm not. You come across as a jealous little pri*k, which is undoubtedly what you sport.

Dear WTF?????--- Shut TF Up.
TT - May 01, 2006 - Report this comment
WTF?, thanks again for the good intentions.

The simple answer (excuse?) in response to Agrimorfee is that the parody exactly parallels the OS lyrics supplied by the United States Government, as cited (except for the one glitch noted). Since we can trust our Government unquestionably in matters of war and peace, foreign and domestic affairs, taxes and budget, etc., surely we can trust them to provide lyrics for "Do re mi", right???

btw, when this parody was written, PMS had posted 27 songs, of which over 51% were captured here.

Aghole, nice comeback, you pathetic twerp. You shouldn't come unarmed to a battle of wits....the truth hurts, doesn't it. BTW Tommy Turtle, another beautifully done, extremely clever and funny tribute to PMS. Sorry to have set a moron straight under your thread, but I see on you authors page you have received an inordinate amount of 1's for great parodies. It is undoubtedly pedantics like the twit here that are behind it. Keep up the great work, and all 5's for this tribute masterpiece.
Red Ant - May 01, 2006 - Report this comment
TT- wonderful tribute you have here to PMS, and all 5s, with a note which I'll get to in a moment. And I apologize in advance to you and PMS for what I'm about to type, but I feel it is necessary.

To WTF?????: I find myself now for the second time in as many days reading crap by an anonymous commentor. Whether or not you or Tommy Turtle cares to like it, Agrimorfee is right in that the original song (as heard in TSOM) is substantially longer than what the lyrics TT listed and went by in making the parody. Had this not been a tribute, I would have taken off for as well, probably in both pacing and overall. It has nothing do with jealously, songwriting ability, or being a prick - it was a legitimate 'quibble' which I also share. You admit to giving Agrimorfee straight 1s on his parody today, then go on to say "...inordinate amount of 1's for great parodies. It is undoubtedly pedantics like the twit here that are behind it." I take it twit to which you are referring is to yourself, since Agrimorfee voted 554 and you are the one who voted straight 1s today. You can save your 'tribute' as well since attack parodies aren't allowed on the site.

Tommy Turtle (and PMS): Again, I apologize for using this space to post the above paragraph. It is a wonderful tribute, and setting up 15 links (and their research) obviously took a great deal of time and effort. I also based my 5s on the possibility that the sound file on that page (which wouldn't play for me) leads to an abbreivated version of TOS, to which this is complete and perfectly paced. I never trust lyrics sites alone though, especially not ones run by the government.

TT, PS- I'll get to your 100th and other parodies later tonight. I've been busy at work and with SOTM the last few days, and haven't had time to read the latest parodies.
Stuart McArthur - May 02, 2006 - Report this comment
another hilarious and time-comsuming tribute TT, and some very funny comments (eg the abbreviated "Ag") - I too have done this OS and done the full version, so I get Agri's point, although I know there are lots of parodies on amiright (one by Kristof in fact) that follow the abbreviated OSlike yours did - 555 and keep up the TTributes
Rick C - May 02, 2006 - Report this comment
Another fine tribute, TT. All fives from me.
Larry Hensley - May 02, 2006 - Report this comment
Good tribute, 555s
Agrimorfee - May 02, 2006 - Report this comment
For the record, I have never given 1's to Tommy Turtle. Beyond that, WTF is entitled to his own opinions as all of us are. End of discussion.

May I chime in? I LOVED my TTribuTTe. I I am honored to have been the subject of so much effort. Good Lord! I am such a slacker compared to the likes of TT! and many others on this site. I hope to repay TT in kind someday ( I have the tune picked out). I've taken no offense to "Agro"mirfee's comment (sorry, couldn't help but have a bit of fun with his nom de' plume). I think he did get quite a bit of aggro for voicing his opinion. WTF STFU unless you plan to identify yourself too. Red Ant, no apologies necessary, this site should be a forum that helps us all become better at what we all love. Constructive and OPEN criticism by people like the talented authors here is conducive to that. That way when you get a 555 from them you know it's genuine.

Stuart McArthur, Rick C, Larry Hensley, Stephen Harrington, PMS (I agree -- I think I have suggested improvements to people when I thought they were indicated, and 5s from me are no BS), thanks.

Red Ant, thanks for votes and comments. My reply to Agrimorfee wasn't just trying to be funny, it is the truth. I've never seen the entire movie nor the scene of this OS, though I'm aware of them by cultural meming. I really did go by the OS supplied. Clearly, I was an idiot to trust the US Government -- whod'a thunk it? -- even the National Institute of Health.

This reinforces what I replied to you elsewhere about how you were braver than I in doing OSs you DK, from downloads, etc. I try one and screw it up.

btw, I would never say this otherwise, but zillions of OSs parodied on this site that have multiple verses have been parodied to only one verse, not three as I did. Without doing any more research, off the top of my head I think of "The Star-Spangled Banner" (four verses; I did five), "Battle Hymn of the Republic" (six verses; how many people 'sides moi have done all six with choruses?); lots of people leave off the first verse of "White Christmas", but so do many OS versions ("The sun is shining, the grass is green, the orange and palm trees sway... There's never been such a day... In Beverly Hills, LA.... But it's December the Twenty-fourth... And I am longing to be up north... I'm dreaming etc.) And check out most parodies of "Deck The Halls", then TT's -- the only one to sub real, informative, rhymed and paced lines for the "Fa la la"s.... ok, I'll shut up.

Never wanted to cause this much trouble (see my editorial/parody "Let's Fight" on 3 May 06); I came to this site because "Turtles want to have fun" ("Girls Just Want To Have Fun") ... hey, there's a parody idea. I DKTOS, just the title, so first come, first served....

Most other tributes I've read are "tributes" only because they plug someone's name, or make up stuff about them. I haven't read all 45,000+ songs here, but I DK how many, if any, take someone's else entire parody and build a parody tribute around it (e. g., TT's "alvin rhodes", "Airfarcewon", or "Pacholek"), or research an author's page, find song titles, keywords, and phrases, then work them into properly-paced rhymes, much less hyperlink to the original author. For all I know, I might have invented these techniques.

IMHO, seems most folks here are too busy plugging themselves to plug anyone else at all.
Red Ant - May 04, 2006 - Report this comment
Sorry to direct the second sentence of the second paragraph in my previous comment at you TT. It didn't come out quite the way I was thinking at the time.

As for parodies missing parts, some of the time I let it slide, but other times I do not. I discussed this at length on the messageboard a while back, though I won't plug the thread URL unless you'd like to read how I used to rate parodies when I first came here. Peace - Red Ant
