The Lyrics

This is a tribute to our own inimitable Fiddlegirl, who impressed me from day one. Well maybe day two, but for sure from day five. ;-) I think I really took notice at her "American Pie" parody and I thought, "This girl has got it!" I've been a big fan ever since.She's done some really great work in a short period of time and I see more great things ahead. And her comments are just as witty and entertaining as her parodies. So I wanted to be the first to give her a trib-ody, as she is destined for the AIR Hall of Fame, if there is such a thing. Alas, I wanted to post yesterday, 9-9-09, because I think that Fiddlegirl does all things "to the nines." It has been told there were nine Muses said to have inspired mankind's pursuit of the arts. I don't know about all that, but Fiddlegirl inspired me to write this parody. She also had posted 21 parodies (solo) when I got this idea, and as you may know, 21 is my favorite number. (Who gets a tribute after only 21 parodies? Amazing!) I heard the OS the other day and it just screamed "Fiddlegirl!!!" You go girl! :-D
Thank God for the Fiddlegirl

Well high is the charm, her writin' ain't slack
Ain't much can top Fidd-le-girl, she ain't no hack
With purpose she writes, talent never lacked
I'm laud-ing the Fiddlegirl

Don't be simple or yer life maybe come to some harm
A hazin' from her rep-er-toire be ringin' your alarm
No frays or your drilled with her steely funny charm
I’m awed by the Fiddlegirl

Well I'll spot me a fine write, a shot from Girl Fiddle
Then the pun's comin' up, I can't wait for transmittal
Fives ain't nothin' for a funny ditty Fiddle
Ap-plaud-ing the Fiddlegirl

Yeah there's smirks a ton and the fun's never low
I pull up her ditty and the laughter starts to flow
A bit a-bout sheep, spewin’ coffee from my nose
Slack jawed at the Fiddlegirl

I'd play, dally, wooden fid-dle if I could
Learn a chord, what a life, would it do my heart some good
Be a fiddle playin' man, am I mis-un-der-stood?
I’m hot to play fiddle, girl

Well I bet she's a fine wife, bet she cooks some good vittles
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes called McGriddles™
Strife ain't nothin' when you read a Fiddle diddle
Still awed by that Fiddlegirl, woo!

(fiddle solo)

Well she'll wield a blade, a knife, she suffers no fools
She's clever when she cuts 'em then hands 'em their jewels
She’ll take ya to the ground man, girl’s got all the tools
Roughshod on ‘em Fiddlegirl

Yeah teamin' with Tommy, boy it makes quite a scene
I gotta bad feelin', workin' with a Turtle green
Hon, let me tell ya how them turtles can be mean
Maraud not the Fiddlegirl

Well, I bet she can play fife as well as the fiddle
When the gun's gummin' up and your thumbs start to twiddle
Dough-nuts better with a creamy dreamy middle
Sounds odd, it's a riddle, girl

(another fiddle dominated interlude)

Well, the Fiddlegirl is crafty as the sky is wide
Man she hooks me with her grand meld-ing prose far and wide
Spreads laughter, good times and play the fiddle besides
Stand up for the Fiddlegirl

Like mad, she's caught, trap sprung now our Girl's with Tommy Turtle
Bet before it's over he'll be wearin' her girdle
Naughty, how you love, but soon she'll call Tommy Myrtle
Spank hard on him Fiddlegirl

Well, she gives all a fine write and plays a mean fiddle
Lot more puns comin' up, but she'll never belittle
Life plays better with a little Girl of Fiddle
Woo! Thank God for the Fiddlegirl, yeah!

(one more enjoyable fiddle opus)
Rock on Fiddlegirl! ;-)

A♠ J♠ - I LOLed quite loudly at this line;

"Bet before it's over he'll be wearin' her girdle"

How do you know he's not already? =;-)

Strange how both you and TT used the word fife in your parodies today. Great write on FG. I am sure this is going to make her day when she sees it. You chose the absolute best OS for this parody. Great trib-ody. 5♥ 5♦ 5♣

Thanks Don Guy, LOL I do not know he isn't already. ;-D

Even stranger, not only did TT and I both use the word 'fife', but each OS was by John Denver. =:-O

It is always nice to see us gals writing songs as well, and Fiddlegirl knows her trade well. May she write at least 555 songs more.

What a great kneeslapping tribute to an excellent writer. I'll bet she was smoking on the fiddle in the solo sections.

You got it absolutely right. FG is a fine gem.

Great tribute to Fiddlegirl! A friend to all on AIR! Dug most of her parodies. This is a perfect OS to write about Fiddlegirl! Very memorable when she teamed up with Tommy Turtle few times! There should be a parody tribute about them together as well. It's all good! 5's!

Can we still say "God"? :D

A fiddling tribute and beaut of a song to 'tributize' the Fiddlegirl. Thank God for BJ21.

Never second Fiddle' she! Great tribute to this whirling Turvish--our rising (and Eliz'ing) star!

"Can we still say God?" I hope so I'm a christian and I'll say it as much as I want! good parody 555

I join the clan in hailing the fiddlegirl...and three hail fives on a great tribute ditty

Thanks everyone for all the votes and comments. :-) (And thanks to the Fiddlegirl for making it all possible) ;-D

Excellent choice of OS and excellent use of it. Thoroughly delightful! 555!

(if only I could see the shocked look on yer face now... surprised ya, huh? :D)

Unfortunately, as fine as your hand is, you're beaten, playa. TT tribbed the FG more than a month earlier than this, on August 5, after she'd posted only 16 songs. Don't believe you've had the pleasure:

...btw, still awaiting that wonderful spanking, but FG has told me she's not into that kind of stuff. Well, ya can't have everything, right? :D
(poss. NSFW). Super trib, really!

Oh, the shame! That's what I get for going to Vegas that week. ;-(

Now...where did I leave that sword?
