Parody Song Title:

"Street Violence"

Parody Written by:

Old Man Ribber

The Lyrics

The original song is a genre of humor which is almost extinct...the "You Almost Said Something Dirty" song or joke. Like dialect comedy, it belongs to a different era. Unlike dialect comedy (which was killed off by political correctness), this form of humor was exterminated by the First Amendment (today, you can actually SAY the off-color words). As I am old-fashioned (after all, I play trombone!), I couldn't resist attempting a parody in this vein - the "jocular" vein to be exact! ;D

(Remember: To make this work, go immediately to the next line without missing a beat each time you see "..."!)

Most of the "news" networks and print "journalists"
Were getting quite angry and royally ...
Put -off by Tea Party. They hate their guts.
The media swore that they'd cut of their ...
Noses so their granny glasses won't fit.
They charged the Tea Party with starting that ...

Street Violence! Only Tea Party does it!
'Though it's a falsehood, they'll make it fit.
Look at that Tea Party ...
Street violence.

We ignore G - Twenty! Let's burn out the rich!
Each Tea Party member's a son of a ...
Banker on Wall Street, and there's something more:
That darn Sarah Palin's a fifty-cent ...
Horse cowboy without a brain or a wit.
She drives the Tea Party to mean acts of ...

Street violence! Unions and left don't do it!
On the Tea Party we proudly spit!
Phooey on them and their ...
Street violence!

To lie and defame them - we can't let it pass.
We swore to Obama that we'd kick their ...
Assets! We don't care when left runs amuck.
'Though it is distortion, we don't give a ...
Fig or a feather. Throw them in a pit!
Just say the Tea Party has caused all the ...

Street violence! No proof but we'll invent it.
'Though we go on like a hypocrite,
Only Tea Party does ...
Street violence!

There is one notable example from the 1970s..."Shaving Cream" by Benny Bell. Check it out. ;D

bottle of Scotch!
