The Lyrics

This week's One Week Notice parody (see updates under Amiright Events). Mashup of The Police's 1978 hit "So Lonely" ( with Larry Williams' "Bony Maronie" smash hit from 1957 (
Well someone told me yesterday
My skinny girl should go away
We will get married one night in June
Rock and roll by the silvery moon

Yeah, she is real hot live wire
Sets my heart ablaze with fire
Oh, she and I will never part
She’s the desire of my heart

She’s Bony—Maronie!
She’s Bony—Maronie!
She’s Bony—Maronie!
My only!
She’s Bony-Maronie!
My only!
She’s Bony—Maronie!

I told her mama, and her papa too
Just exactly what we’ll do
All dressed up, and ready to go
Skinniest girl you’ll ever know

I love her and she loves me
All happy as we can be
By the apple tree, next to the knoll
She always kisses, steal my soul

She’s Bony—Maronie!
She’s Bony—Maronie!
She’s Bony—Maronie!
My only!
She’s Bony-Maronie!
My only!
She’s Bony—Maronie!

Not Toni!
Not Joanie!
Not Mony!
Nor Zoe!
Nor Rosie!
Nor Toby!
Nor Jody!

Bony, my Maronie
She got no tone
Love her so
Mass is low
That is so
She’s like a bone
Like a bone, bone, bone… (etc.)
Yo, this I know
Yo, don’t you know?
Like macaroni
Like macaroni
She be so bony, bony, bony
Skin and bones
So Bony—Maronie! (etc. to fadeout…)

Yo girlfriend so skinny she can hide behind dental floss. I guess this parody answers the musical question "what would happen if you sent Sting to 1957?" :-)

Yo girlfriend so skinny she has to jump around in the shower to get wet. And look out for those nasty autumn winds - it'll blow her away.

It's tricky to come up with these ideas, I like this one, and the not/nor section was inspired/good use of the ending.

Not a bad idea of combining two songs into one BUT you didn't right about "Pleasure or Leisure" unless dating a really skinny chick sounds as being pleasurable? I wouldn't know... I like curvier women.

TBH Matty, I wasn't paying attention to the calendar about the Reunion challenge and thought I had through Monday to submit it. I probably still will do something...

Agrimorfee - That was the whole intention behind choosing a Police song so it can coincide with this other challenge and kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Nice criss-cross work Agri. Never cared for the OS (the Larry OS), so this helps a bit :)

I just realized this could be your default play. Michael Jackson challenge? "Bony Maronie" to "Dirty Diana"! Neil Diamond challenge? "Bony Maronie" to "Cracklin' Rosie"! Beatles challenge? "Bony Maronie" to "Eleanor Rigby"! The possibilities are endless! ;-)

Fun song, I took it as dating in general is pleasurable

Well they better get married before she becomes curvy and the singer ends up like the guy in Andy's parody... :D

Well your heart may be ablaze with fire, Ag, but your description of Ms Maronie doesn’t tick many of my boxes. Skin and bone? Give me Joanie or Jody or Toni even. Nice job 555
