Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

In honor of MasonR and Johnny D, who both merged "A Hard Day's Night" and "Nights In White Satin." And Red Ant, who inspired this and its accompanying parody, by titling a "Yesterday" parody "Honesty." I love merged parodies, witness my own "Gone Down" ("Sundown" and "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald") and "Hidden Banana" (the two Lolas, "Lola" and "Copacabana").
Honesty.
It is such a lonely word to me.
Everyone disdains veracity.
It's what I need from you to me.

Truthfulness.
It means more to me than tenderness.
Without it, you're just blind and in a mess.
Oh, honesty is sure the best.

Why you had to lie, must say, I just cannot see.
You said something false, that just galls, dishonesty.

Honesty.
Wear my heart upon my sleeve, you see.
Pretty face, believability.
Oh, I prefer the honesty.

Why you had to lie, must say, I just cannot see.
You said something false, that just galls, dishonesty-y-y-y.

Honesty.
Value it much more than sympathy.
Where can I turn to get sincerity?
Oh, I insist on honesty.

Hm, mm, mm, mm, mm
mm mmmm...

Bravo! Better than the original, I say.

It's good but I prefer Red Ant's parody... why have 4 parodies all with the same name based on the same songs been submitted in the last 3 days??!

I must say I'm a bit flattered that you did this. In all honesty, it took me longer to find the complete lyrics and type out the finished parody than it did to write it. 555.

I'm running a lie detection analysis program on this parody and the marker goes all the way up to 555 on the scale.

Thank you, everyone. Ant: Wait a doggone second: Are you telling me you didn't know the original lyrics? "Yesterday" by Paul McCartney and the string quartet (no other Beatles on it) is the most-covered song in the history of man's musicality to man, and you didn't know the original lyrics? Oh, man, you either need a vacation or a remedial music course! I learned the lyrics in the second grade! (Yes, my little Central Jersey public school taught the Beatles, at a time when John was still alive and Paul was still with Wings.)
