The Lyrics

I confess to having lusted all these females at some point in my life, and I hereby salute them, with my left hand - so sue me for being heterosexual! Even I don't know why I liked Doris Day, but I do recall boyish daydreams about Calamity Jane. I've paced it to how the OS plays, which is why each verse's pacing varies, so it benefits from being read to the OS (which is available here ) playing
Audrey Hepburn, Doris Day, Fayes Wray and Dunaway
Julia L-Dreyfuss when she's flirting on the phone

Ava Gardner, Teri Hatcher, anyone near Maggie Thatcher
Barb'ra Eden, Barb'ra Feldon, Marilyn Monroe

Cate Blanchett, Cheryl Tiegs, Taylor from the B. and B.
Portman! (that's Natalie)...Pamela's anatomy

Farrah Fawcett's jawbone...gals who dated Rolling Stones
Cheryl Ladd's designer jeans and Hayley Mills in night-ies

These women I've desired
What a state I've been in
since the date I seen 'em
They're preachin to the choir
to impress this fellow
they had ME at "hello"

Karen Allen, Heidi Klum...AnnMargret in Bad Jack's room
Prim'n'straight Kate Beckinsale...Natalie Wood

Scar-Jo, Katie Holmes, Denise Richards (dis-robed)
Lauren Hill, softly killed - sounding hiphopgood

Claire Danes' Juliet...Sharon and her scissor legs
Mena with a single rose - Lena Ol-in pantyhose

Elle M's swimming togs - UmaThurm in "Cats And Dogs"
Victim Jane's "Melrose" face - Penny out of "Lost-In-Space"

Each woman I've admired
gets my heart a-beating
I start over-heating
Bits of me go haywire
ev'ry time I see 'em
[censored] [censored] cre-am

Racquel Welch, bear-skinned...Hurley Liz in safety pins
Jennifer - Beals's thighs...Heather Graham's saucer eyes

Cat-woman, Goldie Hawn...Halle Berry (Monster-balled)
Bonham-Carter (Helena) - after Brad Pitt "feloned" her

Monica Bellucci...Kath Turner's bodyheat
J. but-long-ago Lo...1-bare-legged Flo-Jo

Ging-er...Maryanne...Laurie Partridge in a band
Michelle Pfeiffer's mi-aow...whoopee on pi-anow

Objects Of My Desire
All are perfect samples
All, my heart, have trampled
Just preachin to the choir
to impress McArthur
(they'd have me at "F*** off")

Brigitte B's French curves, Sharapova's first serve skirts when windy

Barbarella's opening scene, Im-brug-li-a Natalie
Kate Moss, Kath Ross, nobody from Lesb-os

Bangles, Whitney Brown, Pebbles at nineteen (wow!)
CZJ! Blown away! in "The Darling Buds Of May"

These fruits of my desire
warrant NO improvement
(love their ev'ry movement)
They don't, a key, require
to unlock this feller
I aint Rockefeller

Julia...Roberts' laugh...when she's in that bubble bath
Grace K, Anna K, sultry Lisa Bon-et

Debra Messing playing Grace, Jessie Alba's cute face
Pamela Barnes-Ewing's rack, Angelina's tattooed back

Gwyneth Paltrow early on, Friendly Jenny Aniston
Monica...(I suppose) the early episodes

Kylie's waxwork on all fours, all the Basin City whores
Female members of The Corrs, gimme more and more and more...

These women start a fire...
in my loins - it's burning!
(not that it's discerning)
's long as they can respire
they've won THIS bloke over
this aint Casanovanovanovanova novanovanova...

I readily perspire
ev'ry time I see 'em
I [censored] my je-ans
They're preachin to the choir
to impress this fellow
they had ME at "hello"

These women are all 10's....even though you left out Bo Derek. Song's degree of difficulty, on a scale of 1-10, is 10. Parody result...priceless, to steal Visa's commercial line. Jess Alba is the hottest, IMO, but you couldn't go wrong with any of them. Great stuff, as usual, Stu. Keep 'em cummin'!!!

thanks Freddy

thanks Johnny - there's an idea, and in fact I DID write it to the strains of my organ :-)

thanks AFW - Beyonce!! d'Oh! (and I was looking for a rhyme for Aussie at one stage too)

thanks 2nz - Sharapova was a certainty, given how they sometimes show that first serve of hers on the Playboy channel

thanks alvin and Stephen :-)

yes, Jeff, lol, I take it you also have your own copy of "Raiders" ;-)

thanks Dee - yeah, I tossed Bo around, but cutting-room floor was where she ended up (hmm, she would've rhymed with Flo-Jo too) - but Jessica Alba in Sin City! (ie. Basin City as per my reference) - crikey Moses....

I've had so much fun reading these (this and Mr. Pacholek's) that I'd be tempted to write one of my own, if I didn't slam you all daily with my obsessive crushes...=)

Another gem, Stu. But, what about a couple of my faves...Elisabeth Shue and Salma Hayek??? I guess it's up to me to get them immortalized here, eh? Oh yeah, fives as usual.

we don't get Vanna, but I remember seeing her on Wheel Of Fortune when I was last in the US, which was ages ago, matthias, plus in all those cameos she does - so she's still around? - or are you wistfully referring to the boyhood memory ;-)

I don't mind being slammed by you one little bit, Arwen.......cigarette? - j/k - oh no, get away from that personally-crafted ultra >:-( emoticon - d'oh! - and many thanks ;-)

Mine was cute, but this was a freakin' masterpiece. I saw you got Z-Jo in there... nice job renaming Scarlett Johansson "Scar-Jo"... Wish I'd thought of Natalie Imbruglia, with the Italian pronunciation (silent G) I could've rhymed it with "drool ya." And Katherine Ross... her peak years were before my time but ho-lee cow... and she still looks pretty good.
Stuart McArthur - April 11, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks MP - and if Katherine Ross was before your time, does that mean that your C Z-J's "Darling Buds Of May" (the charming Brit show that started it all for her) was also before your time? If so, try to get hold of it - I only watched it to see her (at age 19, I'm guessing, and married on the show to a doofus poonce) - she was breathtaking, and as yet untainted by Old Man Douglas ;-)

Well, I hate to change the derection here, but I need to mention something that "stood out" (so to speak) in your opening comment first: "I've paced it to how the OS plays, which is why each verse's pacing varies..". I'm glad you stayed true to TOS; singing this was a breeze (after I regained my breath!).

Now that that pesky pacing thing is out of the way, great work here Stuart (or should that be Spew-her? lol). I haven't seen all of these women, though from the ones I have I take it the rest are beautiful too. Favorite line: "Halle Berry (Monster-balled)" LOL!. No Lynda Carter though? Oh well. 555.
Stuart McArthur - April 12, 2006 - Report this comment
hmm, you're right, I may have to rethink that Lesbos line under those circumstances, TT - and yes, Doris Day indeed - BUT - you can't undo the past...

yes, you're right Red Ant, I placed myself firmly in your pacing school here, as this OS rather dictates it - thanks for listening against the OS - and sorry about Lynda - I always thought she was a little too white-bread, whatever that means, and as though Doris Day isn't *rolls your eyes for you* - lol, and thanks

Stu, you horndog you! I admit I liked it that you mentioned Debra Messing since she's not that big in the girls like me more hope. =) As for myself, I just focus all my energy into one sole celebrity crush, you SHOULD know who that is if you've read all my parodies. ;)

thanks Cat. One at a time is fine, but when you get to my age, you've got a whole Billy-Joel-ful back catalogue

Katherine Ross was in "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid," which was in theaters when I was born, but she was in "The Final Countdown" in 1980, where the U.S.S. Nimitz gets time-warped back to the day before Pearl Harbor was bombed, as was commanded by... Kirk Douglas! But I've never seen "The Darling Buds of May" (not sure if it's ever aired in the U.S.), even though, thanks to Antonio Banderas' Zorronian swordplay, I've seen the darling buds of Catherine.
Stuart McArthur - April 12, 2006 - Report this comment
Michael, I only caught "Darling Buds" (which is set in the early 1900s in a country town in England where everyone helps each other out and the tables are all abundantly laden with fresh home-goodness food and the whole town feasts together with the jolly ma-and-pa rosy-cheeked family, including eldest daughter C Z-J) because a jaded Aussie TV critic who usually despises such saccharine but warm fare, wrote that he never missed the show because of the utterly stunning newcomer, Catherine Zeta-Jones. I was astonished, and tuned in (typical Disney-like Sunday 6.30pm timeslot) and was similarly blown away (as I said in the parody) - never missed an episode after that - would love to see it again :-)

(SOTM) What, no Tawny Kitaen? No Markie Post? No Clara "Where's the Beef?" Peller? .... Just kidding about Clara Peller! LOL! This song must be a doozy to parody, but you did it perfectly. The pacing is dead-on, and I love the reference to Julia in the bathtub in Pretty Woman, I think that's a funny line. And Clare Dane's Juliet.... Where's her Oscar for that? I guess they're holding out for She's the Man to sweep the Academy Awards next year, as that, too, is based on Shakespear. To five or not to five? That is the question. Whether 'tis funnier than a parody about zombies eating people's brains, I think you nailed it, man! It's gonna be a tough month for everyone to vote on. Phenomenal job, Stu! 555

(SOTM) Greetings to the fellow WDSTF parodist! I must say this is a fair amount dirtier than my version, but seeing as how I'm not what you might call an expert on women (I am only 18, after all)...I'll take your word for it. Actually, I am familiar with most of these ladies. But not personally. Good job. - June 01, 2006 - Report this comment
I used to refer to Helena Bonham-Carter as "Helluva Bottom Carter." Just thought that you should know. Fantabulous stuff, s2art. I would love to have written this. TMGLTM, and you named a whole slew of my boyhood crushes. (OK, a whole slew of my *current* crushes.)
