The Lyrics

After a fast start and several long breaks, finally got to #200, which means it's probably time for another break. OS lyrics here. Inaccurate MIDI, only one I could find but sorta gets the idea across, here. Wanted to use a different OS from TT's "Parody 100", and also not the logical switch "A Hundred Pounds Of Clay", as done nicely by Jack Wilson's "A Hundred Parodies". NOTE TO EDITORS: In the "Performers" index, OS singer's name is misspelled as "McGregor", but in the "Songs By Decade" index, there are two correct spellings and one incorrect. The "Performers" index should be corrected to "MacGregor".

There are times when a turtle has to say what's in his brain
Even though it's size of pea, and full of dirt
He's written far too many words, and he knows that it bugs you
He gets quite verbose; pedantic; puns obscurely as he can

He's been a Peeping Tom(my), and some teen-age girls, he's loved
His links and his footnotes are a mess
And does self-restraint possess him? No, he knows it never will
There's just this empty place he calls his "mind", and out it sometimes spills

Parody 200, writin' like a fool
Dissin' ChuckyG and breakin' all the rules
Parody 200, Sarah Palin: drools
Double-entendres breakin' all the rules

Although he's sometimes nailed you
He has praised so many else
Cat calls him "King of Tributes" -- Girl, you're rad!
And all the things he's ever said
He swears they all were jokes
Which sometimes wasn't obvious; offended lots of folks

Parody 200, feelin' so da*n cool
Writin' grammar songs; must think this site's a school
Snorin' 'tween two lovers, dumber than a mule
Lovin' and s*x, he's writin' with his tool

He doesn't really blame you when you looked the other way
Didn't read or vote or comment; there was nothing nice to say

Parody 200, humor's sometimes cruel
What was fun to do: engage in witty duels
Worldy issues, blundered; controversy, fuel
Saying good-bye, I leave you with this jewel

Besides, it's kinda' discouraging competing for homepage visibility and readership with two writers locked in a mad race who post 25-30 songs a day between them, although they're certainly entitled to do so. © 2008 Tommy Turtle. All rights reserved. E-mail:

John Barry, thanks. (curious: does that mean that there's a specific goal, like say, 2500? Or, like Hillary, are you counting on your opponent dropping like RFK in '68? lol :-) You were an idol and unknowing mentor when first I came here, and I'd love to see you go back to concentrating on quality, and writing on the level of which only the inimitable John A. Barry is capable.

alvin: back atcha' ... and although methinks a small break is in order, i've got this great idea...
McKludge: Should I have underlined them in pink instead? ... I enjoy when you do write, and *always* appreciate your clever and perceptive comments. Thanks, McK.
AFW: LOL! good one... hope that doesn't mean one of us is dying :-) thanks, friend.

Fantastic duo-deca-deca-spoof and guided tour down your memory, mammary, malaprops and mysterium lanes! Ironically, perhaps, given all the HTML code in this ditty, if you retire to a life of golf you'll have sallied forth from the links all the way to, well... the links!

Blimey that must have taken a lot of work - thanks for answering my question yesterday & in response to your question it's suffice to say that I'm extremely anti all illegal drugs that aren't green and bushy.

TJC: Thanks, but no thanks.... do you realize how long it takes to crawl from one hole to another? Thanks anyway, and could you hook me up with this Sally chick? :)

Andy Primus: Thanks.... the question yesterday was facetious... had hoped the smiley would have made that plain :) ... just a joke relating to your song's subject matter. Personally, the drug on which I get highest is brown and bushy, or sometimes blond and bushy, but to each his own lol! (seriously, thanks for reading and commenting.)

PMS: I'm so PPleased it MMade you SSmile! ... thanks P!

Mr. MacPhisto: I do believe you're right... ya can get burned out so easily. Good idea -- will probably do that, or maybe two or three -- and thanks for v/c.
