Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Yes, I'm retired (not necessarily undefeated, lol ;) from the site. For those who have never heard of Fiddlegirl and Tommy Turtle, the latter was suffering from a severe case of creative burnout in the summer of 2009. Then the former appeared on the scene, things "clicked", and the rest, as they say, was history. (IOW, blame it all on her! :-)

Fast forward to now: Trolling through old song ideas that never were finished, and found this tribute that was complete (in 2010), but never published. What better way to reminisce "the good old days" than by posting now? ... Alas, I'm still retired from parody, and while I can't speak for FG, I believe that she too is. Hope some of those who were around back then see this.

Also, a fave OS of the author. Beautiful slow-dance video here.

My dear
I cherish ev'ry word sent here
Inspired me to get off rear
Your words: revived, again

Precious mind
Through Internet, you held my hand
Creatively restored my brain
Made it fun to write again

Only you
Came when I thought 'twas the end
Received TT, though thin of skin
This song is for you
Pleasure: aptitude and laughs

God bless you
You made me write anew
For AIR blessed me with you
I wrote a whole new slew
So man-y songs with you
Plus mine, one, or two

My friend
When no more songs, I could endure
You bucked me up and brought the cure
You gave sheep-rides back to me

Precious friend
With you, the laughs will never end
You're one who with what wit, words wends
Extremes, curb, to which T - T tends

Without you
No fun demeaning in rhyme
With puns that should long be a crime
How can I repay
You for your wordplay with me?

God bless you
You bear my humor, blue
You're better than a ewe
Bright, clever pal who's true
I wrote this song 'cause you --

-- Made me write anew

Much too personal and self-involved to be stuff of parody.

Good to hear from you again. She must have been something special to outrank sheep. Hope I can overcome my current malaise and finish up a couple of ideas I've been working on. Bob, my best parodies have been about things I experienced personally.

I like your parodies better when they poke fun of human vices (particularly political) than when they praise human virtues like this. But, from one (semi-)retiree to another, I can tell you that I appreciate the quality of the sentiments expressed in this parody.

More self-published nonsense- 1s

Nice to see you back briefly, TT. Retirement beckons for me also, once I hit the 4K mark.

Hey, Bob and Disgusted, why don't you get off your lazy, cowardly a$$es and show us your parodic brilliance.

The minimum requirement for voters to be taken seriously here is the ability to fairly evaluate pacing.

Bob Morse: Tribute is a long-established genre here. Much comedy is about personal experience -- Seinfeld, you name it. Thanks for stopping by, and do feel free to read my 435 other parodies, most of them the exact opposite in tone and nature from this one. (Shortcut: Click the author name at the top, where it appears in blue.)

Patrick: Thanks for the comment, especially the last one, with which I agree.

John Jenkins: I agree that ridiculing the ridiculous has been a prime function of satire since Greek and Roman times. This was a case of using the craft, including alliteration, syllable-matching, etc. for a positive theme for once. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Disgusted: FWIW, I've sold some of my parodies to a professional radio syndicator, who aired them on stations across the US, some 700+. A few of those professionally-produced ones are at my Soundclick page. Every parody posted at this site is, in essence, self-published. Same invitation as to Bob Morse: Read some of my others, across the spectrum of style and topic, and feel free to comment at each.

John Barry: But that's what you said at the 3k mark, and the 2k mark.... ;) Always nice to see you at any of my songs -- thanks for the visit.

J.A Thott: I've asked that of many Unabombers, especially the anonymous ones, and none has ever done so. Which pretty much says it all. Thanks for the comment.

@ "To Bob and Disgusted": A topic discussed many times here, and the steadily-declining quality of the readership, with inability to parse pacing or to judge quality independently of their personal feelings, undoubtedly has contributed to the gradual disappearance from the site of many long-established writers other than myself. (I wonder if Bob and Disgusted even know what alliteration and syllable-matching are, much less would recognize them when they see them ---- naah, no way.) Thanks for pointing out the disqualifiers for some alleged voters.

For starters, click the blue words (called "hyperlinks") "sheep" and "rides", and I promise you some very different material. x-D

Right on, TT. Many of the best have left because of the onslaught of morons and troglodytes. Used to be a great site.
Tommy Turtle - June 20, 2013 - Report this comment
Agree completely. I tried to warn of this trend, in a parody submitted under a pseudopseudonym for fear of starting a flame war, but in fact it started some great dialog. Wish I'd posted it as TT.

I share your sense of loss. Cheers.

Welcome back, our resident testudine. We've missed you!

Lexcellence once again abounds! If only we could turn back the schlock to the mid to late 2000s for a steady diet of similarly spectacular 'stylings'!
Tommy Turtle - June 21, 2013 - Report this comment
Susanna Viljanen: I've missed you and the rest of our top writers, too, but I'm afraid that I really am retired from the site. As per the intro, this one was written in 2010 but not posted, so I thought I'd post one last tribute to my occasional co-author of 100+ songs, who is also off the site AFAIK. Thank you for the v/c, cheers, and best wishes to you.

TJC:"turn back the schlock" LOL! .. not to mention the time of funny punny comments like thine! Thanks for v/c!

Great nick, btw! (Turtles are known to be slow, but they do get there eventually. ;)
