The Lyrics

This is not a strict song parody. it's a musical parody where you invent nonsense lyrics to music themes a la Bill Murray's "Star WARS, nothing but STAR wars" For the first song the words in parentheses accompany the pounding of the timpani; and Wha' the Fu' accompanies the counterpoint to the da da DAA! fanfare.
(He spake to me and he spake thusly)

(Monkey kills with bone; then bone becomes ship)


Unknown slab! (Wha' the fu')
Acid trip! (What the fu')
Fetus in Space! (Wha' the fu')


I suppose in order to earn a full Malcolm, I should put down some more lines, so here are the little known words to the theme for "Bewitched!"

Bewitched! Bewitched!
Little gal's got me bewitched
Bewitched! Bewitched!
That's why I hadda get hitched (Zing!)
Cause whenever she wiggles that cute little nose (twinkle twinkle)
Things get wacky quick
And then I don't know if I'm a York or a Sargent
Or just a swinging Dick

Got an in-law named Endorah
She's got a nasty aura
Well faith and begorrah
She likes to put my ass on the floor-a (BIng!)
Cause whenever you see her bitchy little scowl
You're going down for the count
And then it gets worse when that batty Aunt Clara
Makes the craziness mount

The Bewitched song is done
Now bring on the ADS!

And while I'm on a roll, here are the words to "Leave it To Beaver"

Let's let it to Beaver and see what happens
Let's see what the little scamp does

Let's leave it to Beaver to get into trouble
But Ward, don't be hard on the Beeve

Just leave it to Beaver to ask a dumb question
Now shut up or I'll slug ya one

Just leave it to Beaver to have a crush on his teach
Ya know, she's a pretty hot babe

June is vacuuming up the house
Wearing her very best pearls
Ward is checking up on the boys
And telling the Beeve about girls

So, let's leave it to Beaver and see what happens
Lets see what the little scamp does

Love it, but the original is by Richard Strauss, not Wagner. Said Mark Twain of the latter: "Wagner's music is not as bad as it sounds."

A fun three-fer!

Gee JAB, I just kinda sorta assumed, that Wagner was the composer simply because the piece sounded so, I don't know -- WAGNERIAN! And, of course, the piece alludes to a seminal work by Friedrich Neitsche whose is intimatetly connected to Wagner. I never expected Strauss, who was somewhat liberal for a German of the time, to be connected to Neitsche

One of the first big song parodies was to "Give Me That Old-Time Religion," talking about a REALLY old-time religion: "Oh, we'll pray to Zarathustra, we'll pray just like they usta, I'm a Zarathustra booster, and that's good enough for me." Anyway, I'm not sure if Strauss would approve... but Elvis might!

I forgot to do the lyrics to "The Perfect Storm" lo, those many years ago, so here they are ...... And that perfect sto-o-o-o-orm ...... 'Zgonna strike today .... So just steam away ........ Cause that hundred foot wave's too much for you and me ..... And that big tuna haul's going right back in the sea ..... And there's nothing but love for Marky Mark and me
