The Lyrics

Just had a suit made for my sister's wedding. (She doesn't write parodies, in fact, I'm not sure I've ever told her that I do.) That made me think of "Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long," written by the legendary comic Joe E. Lewis (1902-1971 - you may have seen Frank Sinatra play him in "The Joker Is Wild") and memorably covered by Barbra Streisand.
O, little tailor, fix the hem.
How tall the pants, so high.
Above my shoes, gives me the blues.
That's not what I should buy.
The pinstripes laid in shineth.
Material feels light.
But in this world too soon the girls
will see my socks tonight.

Yes, Rex, you're supposed to wear socks! And not white socks like Cliff Clavin! Just don't make love with your socks on. Women hate that.
