The Lyrics

This was my alltime favorite Beatles song as a kid, which means I should have parodied this one years ago, because that's what jump starts my muse. And I've had this idea in my head for years, and couldn't finish it .. until this morning, when it was just .. "there". Strange how that works
Well she was barely thirteen
You know what that means
And the way she looked
Was way beyond the pale
So why didn't I dance with her mother (Oops!)
When I saw her standing there

Well she looked twenty
And I, I could see
That before too long
I'd run afoul the law
She knew my aunt was her mother* (Oops)
When I saw her standing there

Well my heart sensed doom
When they crashed that room
And they cuffed their hand to mine
Whoa, was jailed thru the night
And I kept my O-ring tight
And before too long
They were deporting me*
Now why did I act like a Souther (Whooo)
When I saw her standing there

Well my sales did swoon
From this self made wound
As this scandal made .. headlines!
Whoah, they treated me like blight
In travails they did delight
And before too long
My rock career had died
Now why din't I ask "Who's your mother?" (Oops!)
When I saw her standing there
Oh, when I saw her standing there
Well, since I saw her standing there

*Actually Myra Brown was a first cousin, once removed, which means her grandmother was Jerry's aunt, but let's not allow a geneological technicality to get in the way of good pacing, 'kay. Work with me here ....... *Jerry Lee Lewis was was in England when the story of his relationship to his 13 year old cousin first broke. And he WAS asked to depart England at his earliest convenience

"And I kept my O-ring tight" is a great sub, and fit beautifully Callmelennie. Pity the thirteen year old couldn't - 555

If only R. Kelly could get some real punitive damage. Well done.

" his earliest convenience", LOL. "Get out!" I love what you did here, Lennie, telling the story so well from start to finish. I also liked the three mother references all being followed up with the Oops, well suited to the preceding line.

Thanks Stuart. Actually Lewis wasn't jailed in England when this story broke; but why let reality get in the way of a good sub ;-D. After all, he was jailed on other occasions, just for being a maniac. ...... And to Ag; what a day to be posting a Beatles parody!!

Just trying to be as delicately British as I can be, Pip .... Even Britishi-er "If you would be so good as to effect your departure from our island at your earliest convenience." That would be the Queen's way of telling Lewis to GTFO

CML, you could've done this as "I Saw Her Standing Bare!' 555!
Phil Alexander - February 28, 2018 - Report this comment
CML, something a bit more "real" than reality TV with a Beatles tune? Perfectly timed :-)

Rob - this might be a bit safer:

Phil, I was thinking more of this: ATTENTION JON:

I don't know why, but when I clicked this, I thought it was going to be about late comedian Jerry Lewis. I know the difference between the two, my brain just went in "derp mode" for a second. regardless, 5s

Back then, British people were stupid...come to think of it, so were we

Everyone else already pointed out my favorite parts like "O-ring" and "Oops", not to mention the great coincidence of doing a Beatles parody today. Great stuff. And feel free to do a Green Day parody about something green on March 14th. Hint hint (because you're clearly a huge Green Day fan that's why)

Oops I mean March 16th, sorry
CML - February 28, 2018 - Report this comment
Well Claude, good think I went with "kept my O-ring tight" and not "clenched my butt cheeks tight" That was going to be the line, but then I came across the "O-ring line" (badoom tssh) right before I was about to hit the send button

Claude damn, god! We've unleashed "Beatle Parody Mania" here at Amiright. Kinda like the Sioux at the Little Big Horn, these parodies just keep coming and coming!! What's next, an appearance by Alvin Rhodes? An Amiright cage match between Alvin and Rick Duncan for Beatles parody supremacy?
Claude Prez - March 01, 2018 - Report this comment
I know, great isn't it? Nothing against Alvin but did you know Rick has parodied EVERY SINGLE BEATLES song? That's probably why he didn't participate; pretty sure he doesn't like to do the same song twice

So this is not part of the reality show craze of yesterday? Well, I don't think it would be too far fatched to rewrite it about a "Biggest Loser" and us speculating about him/her losing thirteen/twenty etc pounds since last week.

To steal from another Beatles tune, "- dirty story of a dirty man" told very skilfully by a first rate parodist. Excellent stuff. 555

Loved this! Clicked on it because it was a Beatle's tune and thought it was gonna be about a reality show (Jerry's Kids is kinda like reality, right?) but then saw it was the classic Jerry Lee Lewis "Oops!" Great subject to have fun with. if you get a chance, check out our Merry & Pippin Parody of this subject from many years ago: "13 and Wife" - March 04, 2018 - Report this comment
May I call you Lennie? I, too, thought this was part of the Old Guard Reunion or I probably wouldn't have clicked on it. (Sorry, everyone else whose probably-awesome parodies I didn't click on.) Glad I screwed up. Great stuff. SNL recently did a sketch that pointed out how so many classic rock songs openly flaunt their conquest of underage chicks. (This Beatles song qualifies.) Also, Jerry Lee Lewis just played a few shows at the BB King Club in NYC, so he's still around. (At least I think it was him. Maybe it was an exhumed Jerry Lewis, Jonathan. Not sure the audience would be able to tell.) Also, blah blah blah, just rambling here, blah blah blah, positive comment.
