The Lyrics

A tribute of sorts to the prank calls that Bart makes to Moe's Bar... if you don't know the original, try speaking it out loud - then, if you're still not laughing, speak it LOUDER. Then, at least the guy next to you will be laughing his socks off :-)
What should we do with the prankish caller?
So the saying goes
He's rather tight, and he's not too bright
Hugh Jass? Is he at Moe's?

He calls to play
And he makes Moe say
Things he should should not repeat
But all the names
He wants are indiscrete...

Has anybody seen Mike Rotch?
Call for Oliver Clothesoff
I feel a klutz shouting "Seymour Butz"
And when I find that caller I will
Rip out his guts

"Lee V Mediately"
And so everyone goes off...
That prankster's bold as he could be
Makes Moe call out amusingly:
"Big guy at the back: Heywood U Cuddleme"
Has anybody seen Mike Rotch?

Has anybody seen Jacques Strap?
Call for an Al Coholic
He takes the piss with jokes like this:
"Why can't I find Amanda
Huggenkiss"

Did you know I.P. Freely?
Moe's getting vitriolic
A Simpson calling on the line:
Magroine? Say, who's Holden Magroine?
Is there really any wonder that it's so annoyin'
Has anybody seen?
Has anybody seen?
Has anybody seen?
Has anybody seen?
Has anybody, anybody, anybody seen
Has anybody seen Mike Rotch?
Mike Rotch???

I don't know the original song, Phil, but I think that this is a great idea :-D

Well, I guess you'll just have to trust me that the scansion's perfect, then ;-)

Is this the one that originally goes "what shall we do with the drunken sailor"?

K1chyd - yes, that's how it starts
Claude - I think he's been around, but then so has Forzie Nuff ;-)

Smurf and Horse - not to mention Isabelle Ringing and Wayne King... it's kind of fortunate that Michael Hunt didn't put in an appearance, though ;-)

Just steer clear of that Theresa Littlehigh...

Just adding my name to the growing list of people who haven't heard the original but think this was a great parody anyway.

You forgot me, and my friend, Harry Paratestes...and his girlfriend, Betty Humpter...

Betty Humpter? You might find that Sheila van Edayke ;-)

You didnīt use one of these list did you?: http://www.bodo.com/simpcall.htm
If so, hereīs a little inspiration for future Simpsonism. Not a complete list though, just for starters: http://www.bodo.com/simpbord.htm

I don't know the original but I'm gonna give a perfect score anyway.

Bea - yep, that's the site I got 'em all from ;-) Though I guess I missed Lucy Lastic, too...

You've done the unthinkable - a hit parody of a song no one knows. But it's hard not to like this one - or so says my friend Sharon Barrett.

Has anybody seen the lyrics to the original song?

MadKiwi - only just spotted this comment: are you still after the lyrics to the OS?

To quote a lyric from the actual song, Disgusting (as in "The HMS"). Has anybody seen my barf bag? What a sacrilege to the wit of Noel Coward. It doesn't even scan.
unKnownVoter - January 31, 2008 - Report this comment
Do I really want to see this man??
Phil Alexander - January 31, 2008 - Report this comment
unKnownVoter - probably not...
Marlon Andersen - if you think it doesn't scan, then you obviously don't know the OS. And sacrilege? I'd prefer it if it was: I do a good line in sacrilege.

I DO know the original (being a huge Noel Coward fan) and the parody is spot on!
