The Lyrics

Somebody recently wrote a parody of "She Loves You" trashing the Beatles. It was disgusting. Somebody recently wrote a parody of "Seven Nation Army" trashing the original version, if not the very much deserving White Stripes. I think I'll tack more to the latter version in this swipe at the music group I have hated longer than any other... ironically, from their debut U.S. hit. They were actually pretty good from 1967 to 1972, but when they discoed themselves up in '75...
In the event of something happening to me
there is something I would like you all to see:
It's just an album of a group that makes me spew.

Have you seen my lunch, Mr. Jones?
Do you know this group sucks by a damn sight?
Don't go logging onto a Bee Gees fansite
Mr. Jones!

I keep straining my ears because of sound.
That disco soundtrack is making my ears pound.
I wish they would give up and all go home to bed
'cause those white jumpsuits make me wish I were dead.

Have you seen my lunch, Mr. Jones?
Do you know this group sucks by a damn sight?
Don't go logging onto a Bee Gees fansite
Mr. Jones!

In the event of nothing happening 'round here
I would like to say their music sounds real queer.
It's just a bunch of songs, and chunks, well, we all blew.

Have you seen my lunch, Mr. Jones?
Do you know this group sucks by a damn sight?
Don't go logging onto a Bee Gees fansite
Mr. Jo-wo-wones!
In this case, "queer" means "odd," not "homosexual"... After all, at the same time the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack was, uh, out, Queen was selling "News of the World," featuring "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions." Not that there was anything wrong with that!

Ain't no Jive Talkin' here! (Jive Talking being the one Bee Gees disco era song that I ever liked.)

You nailed it, Michael. A promising start devolved into disco dreck. Though I have to admit, the phrasing in "Stayin' Alive" is pretty impressive.

Any parody of any Bee Gees song is fine by me. I really liked this one.
