The Lyrics

For the first time ever...Agrimorfee has written a Michael Jackson parody.
On TV late nights, they sometimes air old movies as a lark
And in the spotlight, you hear a voice that could rip iron bars apart
What's this we see? A skinny, wacky lady in her jacket
It's pink and green, and terror comes as you look into her eyes
What a surprise!

It's Phyllis Diller, late tonight
In many Bob Hope movies, and old TV black and white
It's Phyllis Diller, what a fright!
You're shrieking with delight thanks to Phyllis Diller tonight!

She does her own slams, like when she gave a garbage truck a run
She stops the junkman, and asks, "Am I too late?" He says, "Hop on!”
Now close your eyes, but who’s that, let me give small education…Weird!
That yakky style…she’s the Queen Ant in Pixar’s “A Bug’s Life”
That blow your mind?

‘Cause it’s Phyllis Diller, yeah, that’s right!
Wearing polyester pants in a tone that makes your eyes curl
Phyllis Diller, tight
You glad you got your wife instead of Phyllis Diller? No spite!

Las Vegas called, got her shows
For awhile, quite an escapade
There’s no escape from that crazy comedienne, no jive
(Near 105)
Been on “Family Guy”!

Now let’s inform you, soap actress Susan Lucci’s not her child
She had 6 kids…TRUE! And she’s still kickin’ ‘round, that’s pretty wild
Now is the time for all of you to put your hands together
‘Cause here tonight we have a special guest from stage and screen
For this parody

It’s Phyllis Diller! Thrills tonight
She can give you laughter more than Joan Rivers could dare try
Diller hits the heights
So let me hand the mic to our thriller, Diller WHOO!

Honored she’s here tonight!

(Phyllis Diller:)
Hey out there in online land
You know about my hubby Fang?
I wouldn’t say he is a dud
His favorite drinking pal’s named Bud!

Yeah, so I’ve been shopping ‘round
Wrinkle remover by the pound
15 plastic surgeries, all
More lifts than a British townhall

(Honored she’s here tonight, oh yeah, oh darling, so honored, she’s here tonight…)

Hey! No cracks about my hair
It gives fresh mashers a scare
Little boy just gave me gloom
Asked, “Hey Witch Hazel, where’s yer broom?”

That’s right folks, I’m still alive
The gags I still deliver
And no strong person can resist
The laughter of this Diller!

(In her famous voice) Ha Ha Ha Ha ! A worthy parody of an American gargoyle (I liked her paired with Hope in such movies as The Private Navy of Sergeant O'Farrell and Eight On The Lamb). Good job on a wonderful subject. ;D

I've giggled over Phyllis Diller in many a TV show and movie, just as I did over this parody! Nice job!

(Artistry) Great tribute and parody!

(Artistry) Always interesting to read a tribute parody in honour of a person I've never heard of. Excellent work Agri, 555 for you!

I'm not terribly familiar with her, though I got some of the references, weird. . .awesome pacing job here.

(Artistry) If you know nothing else about Phyllis Diller, know that stand-up comedy was almost exclusively a boys club until she came along. Lovely tribute.

RIP funny lady.

Excellent tribute.
Matthias - May 17, 2013 - Report this comment
This was a good tribute. It's sad that she kicked it so shortly after you wrote this parody about her. She's a great comedian. I loved her in "Mad Monster Party?"

I can really only appreciate this parody, as most (all) of the references went over my head. Always difficult to pull off a good "Thriller" parody, but you did a nice job tackling it.

Diller night!

(ABC) I read this one before? Huh...usually reading parodies years later improves my opinions because I know more about the subject and am not too lazy to listen to the OS...but two years after my first comment, I still know nothing about Phyllis Diller, and now I'm noticing a whole lot of pacing mis-steps. Weird. This was still really well-written, but it just went over my head this time around.

The whole reason I write parodies like this is not to be meta- but to educate the reader--I wiki'd it so you don't have to.. :) See also my parodies "Chiggers" , "Mud Skipper"; "S.L.C." and "Let's Talk About Tex Ritter".

PHENOMENAL title sub and final line (when imagining her laughter)! The verse about her roles helped to make this a quite informative parody ;^). My favorite line was, "You're shrieking with delight thanks to Phyllis Diller tonight!" (It prompted a humorous visual of a giddy TV viewer)

(ABC) Epic OS to go after and you matched it pretty well. Phyllis Diller is a legend and you wrote a parody worthy of her.
