Parody Song Title:

"Smart Of Control"

Parody Written by:

Michael Pacholek

The Lyrics

In memoriam: Donald Yarmy, a.k.a. Don Adams, a.k.a. Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 of CONTROL, on "Get Smart," 1965-70. The same year the show began, the original of this song came out. Max, too, had a heart full of soul. And a shoe full of phone.
(guitar opening)

He is such a dumb guy
that it don't seem fair
that America needs him
evil should beware!
Rotten guys at KAOS
don't like that we're free
so call Max on his shoe-phone
and he accepts our plea!

And I know
to make the free world free again
though he sometimes screws up bad
we need Max Smart
of CONTROL!

(guitar break)

And I know
to make the free world free again
though he sometimes screws up bad
we need Max Smart
of CONTROL!

He's been at this a long time
sometimes gives us grief.
He let a bad guy beat him.
"Sorry about that, Chief!"
Agent 99 can
only do so much.
But when it comes to spying
sometimes Max has the touch!

And I know
to make the free world free again
though he sometimes screws up bad
we need Max Smart
of CONTROL!

(guitar close)
Did I nail this parody? Or did I miss it by THAT much?

Great OS and parody to it. I like how you tied the show and the OS together, Michael....555

This is the second best parody I've ever seen.

I'd tell you what a great parody this is, but first I must have the Cone of Silence.

I didn't miss a single episode of "Gilligan's Island" or "Get Smart" when they showed reruns in the 70s, and now both Bob Denver and Don Adams are gone. ;( We miss them both, but they're in a better place in Sitcom Heaven.

Thank you, everyone. Just remember: We're the good guys, we're allowed to lie, cheat, steal and kill. Alvin: As Al Michaels would say, do I believe in fives? YES! Rick C: I don't know why I think of these things. In fact, I just saw something on the History Channel that the building used for CONTROL headquarters was not in fact in Washington, but was the original Los Angeles County Jail building. (Explains the big metal doors Max goes through in the opening.) Rick D: Took me a minute to get that one. Would you believe a minute and a half? Mason: I tried to turn the Billy Joel song "Code of Silence" into "Cone of Silence," but, like Max, I couldn't get it to work right. Johnny: And... loving it! Jonathan: They say these things come in threes. If I were John Astin (Gomez Addams), I'd start taking better care of myself. (Fred Gwynne, alias Herman Munster, has already been dead for a few years.)

I don't know "Heart Full of Soul" and I've never seen Get Smart. I remember Tennessee Tuxedo and the Toto song "99," though, so that has to count for something. Nice job, Michaelopedia. Rick Duncan's comment drew me here, and I agree with him: It is the second best parody he's ever seen.

Could you just repeat that last bit, MP? - which bit? - everything after "Listen carefully..."

quick on the uptake Michael - a deserving tribute - you might want 99 (didn't we all?) but you're getting 555
