The Lyrics

Manilow, I know, I know.. But BARRY is meant for PARODY!!! And kudos to my other THONG writers. Especially the ones based on this song, for there is never a thong song that's wrong(well, maybe this one)...

(Man to his wife...)

I saw your drawer of tethers,
just how can you wear those thongs?
I wondered how it held everything together,
Just curious,
so I tried your thong.

I tried a thong that makes sopranos sing.
I tried a thong showing everything.
I tried a thong, it made my eyes bulge wide.
I tried your thong, it was so wrong.

The back rode deep within me,
I had pain levels out of control.
See the crazy look in my eyes,
Now look away, not a site to behold.

I tried a thong that made my testies cringe.
I tried a thong I'm on lunatic fringe.
I tried a thong the back strap said good-bye.
I tried your thong, balls won't last long.

Wished I had a second chance,
for this blood loss put me in a trance.
Feels like fire, drop 'n' roll, now I can't move.
I can't release gas,
need scissors now, so it can pass.
A tight squeeze, now code blue,
The pain grew, my balls plea,
approaching androgyny.

I tried a thong that's lower strangling.
I tried a thong let's forget this whole thing.
I tried a thong that made this grown man cry.
I tried your thong, boy it was wrong.........

Funny thong song! It would be funny if Manilow was wearing a thong. Everyone knows that thongs gives people wedgies. When I was in grade school, I saw this kid who got a big wedgie that his undies were pulled way up from his pants. He might as well have worn a thong. Out of earshot, I was laughing hysterically. I would also like to see guys in thongs as well.

Brilliant take on a song that can be quite repetitious.

Owwwww! Painful thanks to you, Jim(it may be painful, but it held the pee...) Thanks, Tim! Those repetitious one's are a challange!!

I have worn a thong a few times, but I don't look very good in one at all for various reasons. Nowadays, the only thongs I wear are the kind that go on your feet, aka flip-flops. I like guys in Speedos, by the way. Christie, I have seen the exact same thing you have in the way of wedgies, and worse too. Here are some 5s.

ha ha ha ha ha ! very funny Mark! Youchers...very graphic images of pain...You gotta have cajones of steel to wear a thong (which is wrong) or otherwise smoke a bong and play donkeykong or watch Cheech and Chong (LOL) just doing a lil' nonsensical rhyme there...

It took balls to write this, which ironically prevented the mission from succeeding! 555 and great material to work with for your tribute.

I'm not "stretching" my thanks along these sets of reviews from you, Turtle! I really appreciate the tribute!!!

This one totally needs a video to accompany it. It's a short song but it works out better because it's such a short song. If it was long I think the joke would have run on too long so overall this was brilliant!

Good enough to offend my mom, a 40-year Barry fan. I am sending this one to her and 555 to you.

People either like cracks like this or they don't. This parody goes right down the middle and evenly divides the two with its deep, probing insight.

"Stretching" my thanks to Matthias (LOL...would be a funny vid, but I[m NOT gonna star!), Agri(Hope Mom gets a kick out of it), and Porfle!

Nice work! Never heard the OS before, but you made a story that, to be honest, I wouldn't want to see in person anytime soon haha...nice job!
Mark Scotti - May 16, 2012 - Report this comment
The thong was wrong, but not my thanks to you, Abbott!
bobpiecheese - May 17, 2012 - Report this comment
(ABC) I hope no-one gave you a wedgie, that'd just be overkill. Great parody of a cheesy OS, 555 and a crowbar to get those undies out!

(ABC) Story and theme.... AWESOMELY HILARIOUS! Great work! 555

Follow up: Mom read your parody and emailed me back that "It was cute. I was going to write him a comment, but I changed my mind."
