Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Another old joke retold in song: a blatant plagiarism of Jake Thackray's excellent "Bantam Cock", but that's the only thing that stopped me writing something that would have been dreadfully libellous to Batman...
He picks up the birdies and he makes them sing
Cheepin' and a-chirpin' and a doin' his thing
Every little budgie, every crow and jay
Love that little robin getting his wicked way

Chorus :
****in' Robin, **** ****
****in' Robin,
**** ****in' Robin,
'cause the birdies gonna **** tonight

Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
All those little birdies that he's never without
See him with a pair of tits, just hangin' out


Then the little robin, well he fell down dead
Feet in the air and a still little head
A couple of vultures passing by
Saw his little body from up there in the sky

Poor ol' Robin, Aah, aah
Poor ol' Robin,
Poor ****in' Robin,
All the birdies gonna cry tonight

I was just about to dig a hole, ensure he's interred
'fore he gets eaten by those vulture-y birds
But then he opened up an eye, and he sang a little song
"I hope those big buggers comin' down 'fore too long"

Phil....I didn't write the comment saying 'didn't like it'. Hmmmpphh...whoever!
Phil Alexander - March 26, 2004 - Report this comment
I kind of thought you hadn't. It really shows a lack of imagination not even to be able to think up a name to hide behind, don't you think?
Guy - March 26, 2004 - Report this comment
I've had this happen to me as well on one of your songs, Phil. Why do people have to be so ugly?. This kind of stuff is not funny.

And I know this joke well. Nice set up and delivery of a great old joke turned parody. I'm glad to see others doing joke parodies besides myself. Well done.

Well, I liked it Phil. And congratulations, this appears to be your 300th post here - - - Hear, hear....
Phil Alexander - March 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, Paul, it's actually my 299th... I'm about to submit my 300th now as it happens :-) (Is this a case of premature congratulation?)

Funny stuff, Philbo! Have a pipeful of Longbottom Leaf to celebrate # 300!
Adagio - March 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Yea, it does show lack of imagination and thughtlessness to use another's name...and congrat's on almost 300.
Mari D - March 27, 2004 - Report this comment
I especially liked the line about the tits.
2nz - March 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Good stuff, Phil. Congrads on 'submitting' 300. The extra day of waiting builds suspense, in a 'where the **** is the update?' kind of way.
The Thought Police - March 28, 2004 - Report this comment
You know ,for some reason,and up until the line about the tits,I was sure that this was a parody talking about Micheal Jackson (read it again,you'll see how...)CURSE THESE UNISEX NAMES !!!! Robin ,Marian ,Adrian(now ,characters appearing in "Rocky XIII",the fight for Sherwood Forest!). 5's from me,thanks!

I was more amused by the 'every little swallow' remark. Call me a mentally demented mongo (my mum does) but I DON'T GET THE ENDING. Please enlighten my pathetic thickness!
Phil Alexander - March 29, 2004 - Report this comment
's OK Jake - no demented mongo status required... the ending means the robin is playing dead, wanting the vultures to come down so that he do to them as he would do (and indeed has done) unto others, so to speak. I didn't have quite as many verses to play with as your namesake, so didn't have the space to make it blindingly obvious, I'm afraid.

Your stuff cracks me up! --555-- Phil, did you know that the original was done by Bobby Day (I had forgotten, had to Google) in 1958? A chart topper, of course, and it's flip "Over and Over" was huge, too. I notice that this site doesn't have a 50s category, just "misc", unless I'm missing something, I'm new here. Great job, man.
Phil Alexander - April 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Rod - though even the 60s section is a relatively recent development, made inevitable by the numbers of Beatles parodies submitted I guess. I remember "Over and Over" being played er.. repeatedly (though presumably not when it was originally released, as I wasn't born then - must have been re-released).

(123) Thought about spelling-out that censored word, but decided that one would have to be an asterisk it.
Phil Alexander - March 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Yes, JD - I thought I'd do a song that was a bit asterisqué...
Thanks, everyone :-)
