Song Parodies -> "No Bra, Eh?"

Original Song Title:

"Volare (Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu)"

Original Performer:

Domenico Modugno

Parody Song Title:

"No Bra, Eh?"

Parody Written by:

Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

OS music and lyrics were written by its singer; the first Grammy winner for "Record of the Year"; the only song recorded entirely in a foreign language to win this award; and the only song by a native Italian to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Phony English "lyrics", mostly unrelated to TOS but matching its music (sorta like what we do here, I guess), scored a hit for Bobby Rydell; Dean Martin made a signature song by combining both TOS and the fake English "lyrics".

TT, being quite fond of TOS, aTTempted a closer translation of it, keeping as much of the meaning as possible while still pacing properly, and then this parody of TOS. Both the translation itself and properly pacing a parody to an OS written in a language he doesn't read, write, or speak were fun challenges. SING ALONG with the original, live Eurovision performance!

Dream keeps returning: I'm yearn-ing and burning all night
High beams a-gleaming; stacked rack packed in wet T-shirt tight
Vision: division of cleavage; erect areola
Play like viola, my Lola, nips: goal, my lip's payola!

No bra, eh? Whoa, whoa!
Hurrah, Yay! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
I'm blue from ogling you
Keep staring, your pair baring through

And I'm wanking, I'm wanking,
Admiring and thanking: inspiring mamm'ry fantasy
While the round of her mounds so abounds, it astounds; surrounds me
So profound, they're renowned around town; win the crown easily

No bra, eh? Whoa, oh!
Mard' Gras day! Whoa, oh, oh, oh!
LIke glue, I'm stuck on your "moo"
Keep running right back to the loo

Dream always vanishes! Dang it! Dawn's new light, gee whiz!
Then I wake up in a mattress all covered in jizz
But I continue to daydream all through the day's work, aah!
Tube-topped co-worker; eyes lurk: her; non-taxable perk, aah!

No bra, eh? Oh, OH!
Ahhh, "Ah" say: oh-oh--oh-oh!
Nice view of sweet honeydew!
Your melons, I'd love to nurse, too!

I continue to stare at -
- Incredible pair, spanking crank thing 'til blanking out cold
While the beautiful bodice of bosomy goddess blooms bold
Hot babe: brassiere-less: Behold! Watch unfold unmatched mold, purest gold!

No bra, eh? Yo, ho!
So blasé: glow, apropos
One screw I'd love to pursue
In line with ... the rest of the queue


So PHAT, and "quid pro quo" that!
Which means: I want tit for tat!
"Abreast" among best, it's true!
Preview, view,... review and re-view!

Thank ... you!

If-a you-a speak-a da real-a Italiano, don'na' mak'a- funna' traduzione (translation) mia, eh? Is-a not-ta so easy, parodia in-na' lingua no speak-a!

Sir, is it so wrong to have a photo taken, when we are ' in our prime " ? CowboyJim retains the photoPoster in the Big Barn & inside his closet door, of me on the Campagna in the tall grasses, wearing only my Wranglers . . . CowBoyDave paid good $$$ to have that ' tasteful' photo taken with my tawny hair flowing & daisies covering the 'juicy' parts !

That was a fun read - loads of great lines. Now it's my turn - Domenico who? Never heard of him.

Mark Scotti: You're well-come!
alvin: a pair of thanks
John Barry: Grazie, Signore!
Jim Rotondo: My pleasure when I please, Sir! ... (and when I please her!) ... thanks.
LadyCupCakes: Not only is it not wrong, it should be mandatory! ... you'll appreciate having those when the prime becomes sub-prime. In fact, you should post them on the Web and point us to them. Thanks for v/c, LCC!
PMS: If this is what it takes to draw you out of your cave, I'll have to do more like it! ... have missed ya here, and appreciate the cameo appearance. Thanks for v/c, P.!

Andy Primus: Probably before your time, and this was probably his only hit in the Anglophone world. So.... click the link for the "Sing Along" and watch him in action, live with orchestra! ... thanks for v/c, Andy.

One of "D breast" pair 'a D's of "D" day

Sweet taste of voyeurism in your lyrics, Tommy! Very descriptive...reminds me of most of the romance novels I read. I also remembered watching this episode in "Maury" where this young woman wore Size M bras (the largest size, way larger than DDD's) I echo Jim's comments! 555.

I'm convinced Dean Martin and that other D.M. guy are spinning, or at least 'jouncing provocatively', in their graves! Wonderful word jostling, apposition, deep dualism and lexy enhancement, TT! Overall, a spectacular "review"!
Tommy Turtle - May 14, 2009 - Report this comment
AFW: Cleeeever! ... and sooo much better than that other "D" Day, June 6, 1944! (Amphibians hate amphibious landings!)

Christie Marie M: Methinks you must be reading male "romance" novels, rather than the typical Harlequin-female-targeted ?! Hmmm... methinks mealso medetects a trace of the taste for the ladies in thee? Fine by TT! ... and in any event, thanks for read, vote, and comment!

Cup Runneth Over: And who would know better than thee, with thy "pride" in that which runneth over? Thanks runneth over from double-T's!

Yahoo Geocities, which used to host the author's personal site, shut down a good ways back, which is why the link in the intro, to the TT English translation, is broken. Now on his own hosted site:
