The Lyrics

1957: Paul Anka duels with John Diefenbaker to see who's the worst-sounding thing to come out of Ottawa. 2005: Paul Anka tries to one-up Pat Boone with an album of hard-rock covers. "I feel stupid and contagious..." I guess that makes Boone the contagious one.
You were young but now you're old.
This you've noticed, not your mold.
I don't care just what you say
even though you wrote "My Way."
Your music, it could be free
I'd still toss it in the trees!
Oy, please, stray from me
Paul Anka!

Chills I get when I hear your songs!
Oh, Paul Anka, you're so wrong!
I loathe you through eternitly!
Oh, Paul Anka, can't you see?
Now Nirvana you have reached
with a voice that should be beached!
Oy, please, stray from me
Paul Anka!

You're a singer, you're a writer!
Come near me, I'll be a fighter!
I'll hit you with my fist!

Only you can take my ears
and make me go and drink fourteen beers!
Wrote the theme for Johnny Carson's show!
He retired, so why won't you go?
Go away, now, Paul, just go tonight!
This I tell you now with all my might!
Oy, please, stray from me
Paul Anka!
Oy, please, Paul Anka!
Oy, please, Paul Anka!
Oy, please, Paul Anka!
(repeat 'til fade)
"And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain..." Apparently not. How come Sinatra, Bowie and Cher retired 14 times between them, and Anka hasn't?

So there's this remote (stress, remote) Scottish island, but strangely, one guy who lives there has connections to Frank Sinatra. He gets Sinatra to agree to perform, but only if the townsfolk supply the band. They have some pretty talented muscians and assemble a band. Sinatra shows up and the show starts. Things are going well, until Frank gets a few bars into "My Way." Suddenly the drummer leaps to his feet, runs up to Frank, and starts pummeling him. The guy with connections pulls the drummer off Frank and asks, incredulously, "What are you doing, man?!" The drummer replies, "I swore I was gonna kill the next person I heard sing that damn song!" 5s - December 30, 2006 - Report this comment
