"The Greatest Line"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

The greatest words in human history: “Boy, you’re terrific cheesecake!”
The greatest line
Said under these blue skies,
Was said right to a woman’s eyes,
By a scout one year,

The greatest line
In all of history’s days,
One Boy Scout just happened to say,
“You’re mine alone.”

What was said wasn’t fake,
He called her “terrific cheesecake!”
That Boy Scout gave “Roxanne” his take,
Etched into history...

The greatest line
Said on a long-lost kine*,
His mouth got washed out for saying...
...That line!
*Abbreviation for kinescope, which is a recording of a television broadcast made with a film camera pointed at a television monitor.

A show featuring an elephant, Boy Scouts and seductiveness. What’s not to love?

Flooding your own parodies with gushing comments under another pseud is pretty desperate.

I'm in complete agreement with Libby, which, of course, is utterly meaningless since I'm so consistently aligned with Libby that Im known around the site as Libby's Mini Me ... Just kidding, Libby and I havent been in agreement on anything since the turn of the milennium. We're as far apart on the spectrum as Mega Ultraviolet is from Ultra Infrared .. So, if we agree on this ...

I'll try to be gentle here .. I've checked out your links and the links of the bands you are parodying and it appears that out of about 100 submissions that you've made in 4 months all but 3 involved bands that NOBOBY else has ever parodied, which is amazing, given that there are 97,000 parodies in the archives. I have, under the names Callmelennie and CML and various and sundry sock puppets, over 400 submissions and Ive never achieved this even once. So I would say you are MORE THAN A TAD idiosyncratic ........ Well fine, we can put up with a little eccentricity, but not if you overwhelm the site with it. Anyone happening on this comment section today will think this site is all about 300 Boy Scouts who appeared on a TV show 70 years ago. This place is in a delicate condition as it is. We cant afford this .... As my mother was fond of saying "Keep it down to a dull roar."

CML, sure your mother wasn't related to my father? That was his favourite saying! :) Can only agree with your observations.
