Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Q : How does one improve a Simply Red song ? A : Parody it ! This is the only hit of Simply Red's that doesn't make Pippin fall asleep before the end ! Merry hasn't forgiven me for making her listen to it... A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here
To cops sold out
Cement soles bound for river
Loomed my depart
With doomed digits severed
Assure me now...

A new name and home
Just bus me with some dough to ol' Hong Kong
A new name and home
Am willing to learn Greek or Tagalog

"Ti ammazzo..."
Vito's words quite bereave me
Must perform guile
Or Vinny's gonna leave me:
Coshed, cleaved, burned and drowned

Want a new name and home
I'll suffer Timbuktu, Nauru or Nome
A new name and home
I'm bluffing now through life as Mister
Wong – you know
Wong – hello
Wong – no show
Wong – laid low
Out of sight !

Betrayed ‘em, me blabbed
Now sought "squeal-deal" protection
A su-per grass
Must hi-hi-hide and evade detection
Or be skewered profound!

Now my new game's ‘Keep mum'
I'm toughing it, no choice but play along
Was insane, was dumb
I'm huffy seein' it's plain it's for lifelong
I became a Nun
Had rough time, sheathed myself into sarong
And I feel so glum
‘Cos hunting this man down won't take them
Long oh no
Long oh no
Suff'ring Katmandu, Canberra, Kew or Rome…

(repeat and fade)

Alvin, you're quite welcome here, plenty of space in the middle where no-one would ever find you (or want to try, truth be known). Bring water, it gets a tad hot...
