The Lyrics

I believe there are many versions of the OS, so forgive me if I'm missing lines.
As I eat my food with abandon
I feel rumblings in my colon
My problem is not just indigestion
Backing up is my suggestion
What must you think now that I've farted
My gas from me has departed
Just had a plate of beans
Should have had some nice greens
My bad
The smell I know tends to linger
No need to ask to pull my finger
Everyday the noise grows a little louder
I'm not feeling that much prouder
I hide in corners
Hope it will pass
Must be alone
I curse my own ass
Clenching and squeezing I pray for relief
This will all just pass is my belief
What must you think now that I've farted
My gas from me has departed
Just had a plate of beans
Should have had some nice greens
My bad
Some foods I find to be binding
Bananas mostly I am finding
Oh, Mom was right about regularity
Constipation is no hilarity
So that explains why I have been farting
I cannot stop once I'm starting
I know I've got to cease
Please don't call the police
I've been trying every cure
Which one works I'm just not sure
I've been gassy every day
It's no great fun to feel this way
Tums ain't gonna help me now
Passing gas like some cow
I've been trying every cure
(fade out)
It's at the end there that different versions end differently so I just added the "fade out"

Thanks, 2Eagle. I'm ex-gas-perated about it!

(SOTM) Simple but effective fart parody. Good call on adding more fadeout words.
Jason - June 10, 2008 - Report this comment
(S.O.T.M.) Not bad, but unfortunatly I don't like the topic, so I marked accordingly.
Matthias - June 10, 2008 - Report this comment
I'm with Jason. This parody wasn't bad, but I am not a fan of bathroom parodies unless they only reference them while all the while being about something else altogether.

Where's poomaster when you need him?

As others have hinted this is not a subject that does very well in the SOTMs, and when you get to have done like a hundred parodies in total yourself and followed the daily postings for months you will not need an explanation to why, don't feel bad about it though, we all have some bathroom parodies under our belts (so to say), it's a writers block breaker if nothing else, and this one was way better than my first straining attempts in the genre anyway. :-)

Thanks, Peter. I'm still kinda new to the parody thing, but i hope I don"t run out of gas. (Sorry!)

(SOTM-MAY-08)

A poem by Henry Gibson: (A mainstay feature of "Laugh-in" but somewhat an original of mine that follows in the "Henry Gibson" traditiion.

Beans - beans the musical fruit,
The more you eat, the more you toot.
The more you toot the better your feel,
So eat your beans at every meal.

This parody stinks - but that is a good thing in this case.

(SOTM) My problem with bathroom humour is not the topic itself - it's that it usually gets a bit repetitive. That being said, this was a fairly good start to your parody career - just need to set it out a bit more. Having just one block makes it hard to distinguish between verse and chorus.
Red Ant - June 29, 2008 - Report this comment
I was gonna mention the format like conqueror did until I heard the song - there really are no breaks between verses/choruses, so what you have works fine. This was pretty funny and didn't make the mistake of going for all out grossness over humor. Lots of clever rhymes and lines. Well done. 5s

This was a gas... so to speak. Not excessively gross for the subject, er, matter. Nicely done (and welcome :-) )
Gianni - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Thanks bobpiecheese, Red Ant, and Phil..Having read some of the over-the-top "gaseous" parodies, I was trying to tone down the grossness for the humor, so I'm glad that that was recognized. And, yes, the OS really doesn't have breaks, so I did it all as one block. Man, I appreciate these solid criticisms, guys. It means my work is getting attention paid. Thanks!

(SOTM) In honesty Gianni, while Gas parodies/Toilet Humor is for whatever reason looked down upon here, outside of AmIRight in the recording world it is still wildly popular (everyone laughs at gas even if they don't want to admit it) I did NOT find this parody to be all that gross, there are some fine tuning issues though. The title is a good sub for the original. It's nice to see newbies in the contests, so I hope that the ew crowd doesn't hurt ya too much, welcome to AmIRight guy. ..

Not a bad first submission. I didn't have a problem with the subject matter, and have seen far worse :)
Invisible Boy - June 30, 2008 - Report this comment
Nice effort here Gianni and welcome to SOTM. The subject matter doesn't bother me either
I would suggest you try to "tighten-up" the writing whenever you can. Here's just a small example...and not to nit-pic...look at your OS's title. "What Becomes Of The...Broken-Hearted", where "Broken-Hearted" is the hook. Your sub for those four syllables is "That I've Farted" ...which is 4 syllables, but the contraction is unnecesary. Why not just say "I Have Farted" and work backwards. Maybe try to rhyme "Becomes"...maybe "succumbs"..."She Succumbs Now That I Have Farted"
Now you have another character you can make jokes about...I know this is a bit long-winded but you seem to like the feedback...It's nice if you can set-up the premise in order to have more directions to go...

Thanks, Dave, Jeff, and IB. B.A.D- I still giggle at some of the lines here; and I'm not going anywhere. Jeff- Thank you. IB- I get the point you're making. I was never really happy with the title; I kept singing the song to see if it would fit and kind of just settled on it. And ,yes, I do like the feedback..but "make jokes about" you?...
