Song Parodies -> "(Mammaries) The Way They Were"

Original Song Title:

"(Memories) The Way We Were"

Original Performer:

Barbara Streisand

Parody Song Title:

"(Mammaries) The Way They Were"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

Like the artificial kind.
Bouncy silicone-y mammaries
Not the way they were.

Scattered pictures
Of the scars on your behind,
Scars that lifted up your buttocks
From the way they were.

Can it be that your figure was so awful then
And has surgery changed every line?
If you had the cash to do it all again,
Tell me? would you? could you?

May be surgically enhanced
And your backside may be lifted
We simply look, entranced

So it's the surgery
We will remember,
Whenever we remember
The way they were;
The way they were.

Nora, that wasn't exactly the most coherent of comments: when you say "I'm quite cut", is that in the surgical sense, the alcoholic sense or did you really mean to put an "e" on the end? Also, I'm kind of confused by the "Dont pay out the song" comment... I mean, I'd like to get some kind of payout from my parodies, of course, but it's not happened yet.

It paced very well, and is a good substitute for the Streisand song. Can't believe I used to like her. Good song.
