The Lyrics

What follows will make no sense whatever to readers who haven't also read a comment by “Mr Critic” and AFW’s response subtending the latter’s “Yesterday”/”Yesteryear” parody which appeared …well, yesterday (3/4/2008). Both for making sense of this parody, and for the pleasure of reading AFW's one in question, I'd recommend that all in of that remediation pursue it. :-)
“Man, Cool it”


Hang on a sec, man, cool it,
“Mr. Critic” guy.
Hang on sec, man, cool it
And I will tell you why …

“I’m a Beatle,” AFW’s spoutin’,
“but my secret life
is parodies put-outin’
and with’em this site’s rife.”

Hang on a sec, man, cool it,
“Mr. Critic” guy.
Hang on sec, man, cool it
And I will tell you why …

“‘Yesterday’,” he’s claimin’,
“was composed by me --
my real name's "Paul,” I came in
here incognito, see?”

(Well, now boy,)
Hang on a sec, man, cool it,
“Mr. Critic” guy.
Hang on sec, man, cool it
And I will tell you why …

So fear not, “Mr. Critic,”
in actuality
despite your note acidic, he
wrote song and parody.

(Well, now boy,)
Hang on a sec, man, cool it,
“Mr. Critic” guy.
Hang on sec, man, cool it
and by now you know why.

Hang on a sec, man, cool it,
“Mr. Critic” guy.
Hang on sec, man, cool it (a well-a, well-a)
’Cause AirFarceWan don’t lie.
AirFarceWan don’t lie.
AirFarceWan don’t lie.
AirFarceWan don’t … lie.

I'm humbled as a bug to be so satirically honored in this humorous parody...and since I have been royally knighted by the queen, I feel I must reward you just as royally..so, I shall grant you one night with my star-dancing ex-wife, Linda... (PS she relates well to wood)...and thanks again, for your Stan-ing Oration

A quick, and necessary response. It warms my heart to see you come to the defense of a fellow parodist.

I went back and checked this out. If I had to self-flagellate for every honest mistake I've made in nearly four years on the site, I'd be dripping in Leslie Gore.

Thanks, all. Actually, I'd like to think the comment by "Mr. Critic" was itself a humorously intended gibe, tho' a "real" amiright ID might have better clarified whether that were so. Shrug. My own goofs within and surrounding submissions -- both parodies and comments -- would, I suspect, by their very number dissuade any but the most determined nit-picker of the worth of pursuing'em. Accordingly, I view'em as a sort of protection. :-)

Sir Stan, ~Lord o' Kingston Halls~ This is my all time favorite American folk song: Tom Dooley!! Oh . . . what you mean to me . . . And . . . . . . what you "Parody".

5's for a good read. Mistakes are what life is made of. They add flavour. Nit-pickers are nature's mistake :)

That last comment was mine and I wanted to take credit for it. How my name showed as the security code I have no idea. I don't remember typing the code. Hey! A mistake.

Again, thanks to all you high-5ers.

Pippin -- Yeah! Nitpicking bad. Mistakes good ... well, at least not always so very terrible. Still, despite that I don't "do" deities whose perfection my aspiration or pretension to same might offend, and despite that the errors they thus-mindfully include in their works are supposed to virtually undetectable to non-devine eyes, I'll maintain Navaho sand painter-wise that my boo-boos are all deliberate. (And that would include two I noticed postsubmission in this parody). :-)
