The Lyrics

As much as I enjoy the weekend's approach, it does sadden me a bit to have to wait two whole days for more parodies from you wonderful guys and gals. I have withdrawal pains! So, here's to you all. :)
This week in parody was so divine
With satire and word play most splendid
Now it is Friday
Tomorrow I’ll pine
For new songs, in ‘net now suspended…

What’ll I do
When it is Saturday,
And coffee’s brewed,
What’ll I do?

What’ll I do
As weekend hours accrue
Amusements few
What’ll I do?

What’ll I do without a hearty laugh
From puns writ in reviews?

Work of my own
I must construe, renew
Sans witty crew…
What’ll I do?

I know this song well and perform it. You capture the sadness of no weekend updates here. And saddest of all...no interacton with you. ;D

That's the way I feel, too, especially waiting two months for parodies to be submitted. I also don't know what I'll do without AmIRight. And I echo OMR's comment. I may write another parody over the weekend, but may or may not post right away. It's all good. Enjoyed it lots. 5's!

We all share the sentiment, Fiddlegirl! Great parody!

Great parody as others have mentioned... and you somehow pulled it off without subbing in 'ewe'!!!

I feel your pain Fiddlegirl. But you could read through the entire John A. Barry catalog. ;-) That's 2500+ and counting, but I'm only giving you 555.

Du bist eine Berlinerin! Thanks for the suggestion, blackjack.

You could also pen your writes for the upcoming week, and have ten ready to go.... At one time, the site had occasional weekend updates (no offense to SNL), sometimes 7 days. But there were a lot more submissions then. (Where have all the writers gone? Gone to YouTube ... Peter, Paul, and Mary, or was it Curly, Joe, and Larry?)

Or you could do what TT does: Catch up on work, chores, bathing, sleeping (da*n "inspiration" last night had me up 'almost til sunrise), etc. Then on Monday, a breath of fresh AIR! ... oh, yeah, 555. Ration it out to last the weekend.

Nice thought and tribute to Amiright. Weekends could be for more writings as your are always great to read.

You touch a common nerve, here..for all of us who should get a life,.but you know that old saying, "It's a great life if you don't weekend"

Mr. Bunker: Have several ideas in various stages of completion that I continue to toss around. Perhaps one or two will be ready to post by next week! Quite honestly, as TT well knows, there is always SOMEthing needing to be done. I just try to avoid doing the boring things!

Timmy1000: What a nice compliment! :D

AFW: You are so punny!

Good one... for me, real life (antique & collectible shopping, nightclubs, concerts and spending time with friends, loved ones and my pets) is a good substitute for AmIRight, as are other sites I belong to. But without AmIRight, I don't know what I'd do for parodies and feedback on the same. If Chucky G pulls the plug someday and I'm active in song parody writing, perhaps me and a few other writers could put together a successor. 5s.

In my opinion, the OS is the most pristine and beautiful ballad of them all. It is almost sacrilege to parody it, but you have made a fine attempt. Berlin, a parodist of his friends Porter and Arlen, would approve. Technically, you have missed three rhymes: In Verses 2, 3 and 5, the second word of the second line must rhyme with the last word of the first line. These omissions will be reflected in your score.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
