The Lyrics

...gepetto sings...
from pine, i carved a new guy
fitted just so
a little song and dance guy
clever pet, you know
yes, he just came out lovely
i made him cute, not ugly
he has a wooden head
painted face, a-glow

so won't you please
see my whittled baby
see my whittled baby
my son...my only baby
not from wood all gnarly
see my whittled baby
see my baby...wow
whoa...ho...ho...ho

he is a happy baby
just great, you see
he runs and skips so nimbly
frisky, is he
although a planed and sawed dude
he is a quite unflawed dude
though he's a hinged and bored dude
he's just right for me

so won't you please
see my whittled baby
see my whittled baby
my son...my only baby
not from wood all gnarly
see my whittled baby
see my baby...wow
whoa...ho...ho...ho

Creative use of OS - don't let him near the water and you better teach him about honesty. Nice write.

Awwwwwwww......that's so sweet! Great trib about Pinoch there! Nice to write this satire in Gepetto's POV! I imagine him singing that to his wooden son! "Wood" you like me to build you 3 sets of 5's?

Alvin - this is "Whittled" in more ways than one. Fine piece of wit here. Too bad for Pinocchio that it was his nose that grew when he lied. I could think of another part of his anatomy if it grew when he lied, he would never tell the truth. That has always been something that annoyed me about Pinocchio, was he made anatomically correct? I had a really old Pinnochio book with plenty of pictures in it when I was a kid but you could never tell if Gepetto made him a "real" boy or not. Hmmm. food for thought and while you are digesting that here are some fives for dessert.

Another "Wall of Sound" OS hit for Phil Spector -- that guy was killa! ... ask his wife, Ronnie, of the Ronettes. 555.

@Guy: Disney just *told* the kids that it was P's nose that grew! They hid the truth, but as the kids got older, they found out for themselves... never trust a Disney flic!

Your version (great), perhaps best sung by... 'Burl' Ives!?

Is that a wooden log in Pinocchio's pocket or is he lying again?
