The Lyrics

I know a young lady who swallowed a fly
And I know why she swallowed a fly
It was on a guy..

I know a young lady who swallowed hard cider
It tickled, she giggled when it got insider
She swallowed the cider, and gulped the fly
And I know why she swallowed a fly
It was on a guy.,

I know a young lady who stroked her bird
She stroked her bird, and heat occurred
She stroked her bird, then swallowed hard cider
She swallowed hard cider, then gulped the fly
And I know why she swallowed a fly
It was on a guy

I know a young lady who shaved her cat
Now fancy that, a clean shaven cat..
She shaved the cat and stroked her bird,
She stroked her bird, and swallowed hard cider
She swallowed hard cider and gulped the fly
And I know why she swallowed a fly
It was on a guy

I know a young lady who posed like a dog
Just shed her tog, and posed like a dog
She posed like a dog, with a shaven cat
And had stroked her bird, and swallowed hard cider
She'd swallowed hard cider and gulped the fly
And I know why she swallowed a fly
It was on a guy..

I know a young lady as fat as a cow
How chubby now, to be fat as a cow
She was fat as a cow and posed like a dog
And had shaved her cat, and stroked her bird
And had swallowed hard cider and gulped the fly
And we all know why she swallowed a fly
It was on a guy...

And she swallowed that fly with a lot of force
How do I know?
Why I, was the guy, of course

Thank you for your submission. It is truly a template upon which hundreds of parodists will, far into the future, build their own personal "Swallowed a Fly". We can only hope that you yourself might try again, keeping the excellent meter and Engliish usage, this time adding the element of entertainment. With best wishes.

Thank you Pomfret. I appreciate your interesting remarks, and I would hope that in the future you might comment on some of my other submissions, only next time adding the element of correctly spelling the word, "English" with just one "i". Also, with best wishes

Well done, AFW: I was thinking of a parody for this one, but it was *definitely* whatfreaks material, and I hadn't worked out how to tone it down sufficiently. Respect.

" I Know An Old Cheney Who Fathered A Lie " ?
I don't know why he fathered a lie
Perhaps he's sly...

I know an old Cheney who covered up badly
Ever so madly, he covered up badly
He covered up because he'd fathered a lie
I don't know why he fathered a lie
Perhaps he's sly...

...any more, anyone? ;-)

JD--Nope. "I Know a Director Who Remade 'The Fly.'"

I found a slight pacing problem; other than that, it's pretty good. 5-5-5.
Matthias - January 27, 2006 - Report this comment
Look forward to reading yours J.B!!!
Red Ant - January 27, 2006 - Report this comment
Truly good parody and 5s, but isn't the "jiggled and wiggled..." line repeated every verse?
AFW - January 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks, Serafina, and Red Ant.....Red: no repeats on that line in lyric copy I followed...but I do admit to straying from the pacing a bit...almost had to...with the chosen theme..

"I know an old prophet who's born in a sty" perhaps? It could be done both literally/biblically and/or monthypythonesque.

Thanks, K1chyd
