"Melanoma!"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Melanoma!
I've been warned one day I'll be in pain
Love the sun's sweet heat
From head to feet
Gotta keep my tan because I'm vain!

Melanoma!
Not a single cloud out in the sky
And the men all gawk
By me they walk
As I rub in oil so I fry

I'm happiest when I am tanned
'Cause the feeling of tan-ness is grand!

And when they say, "Hey!
Oh Arwen, how you'll pay!
You'll look like Leatherface with all your Melanomas!"
Melanoma? No way
(I swear I'll be okay!)
Melanoma...No way!

This totally reminds me of my sister, who is tanned a golden brown 365 days a year. I am going to send it to her.

It also reminds me of the movie Uncle Buck. Remember when he meets the Principal, and she has a big mole on her face, and he introduces himself as Buck Melanoma? I laugh way too hard at that to this day...

And by the way, excellent job!

Reminds me of Fletch (like everything else): Melanoma, carcinoma, some kind of a noma.

This rubbed me the right way...very funny and tasteful take on a touchy subject...three 5 sunblocks

Leatherface? I saw leatherface on a rafting trip, the bus driver. Seems he never wears a shirt, and he's always in the sun, near water. He was like 60 or something. Scary guy!

Ash...I love Love LOVE Uncle Buck! It's so classic...thanks!

Jeff...I love Love LOVE Fletch! It, too, is SO classic! Thanks!

AFW...I love Love LOVE...um...your comment? Thanks!!

Tim...I actually was thinking along the lines of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre...but...um...I love Love LOVE rafting! I didn't realize that George Hamilton was driving bus these days...

Arwen, the bus drive puts George Hamilton to shame. It would take George three years of soaking up sun year round to even start to look like this guy. I should've taken his picture...

humiliatingly tactless and hurtful, having just had a carcinoma cut out - but you weren't to know that (sob) - I on the other hand do not act hurtfully, and shall thus award you 5s (beaming with smugness now)

Oh, cut it out! 5's
Arwen - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
alvin...I'm glad that once you got to the song you weren't let down!

Stuart...actually I did know that. Since you told us on TOTTM. Take that for what it is worth...but I wasn't mad at you when I wrote this last night. Tonight, however...is a different story.

Johnny...short and sweet...thanks!

Arwen, I did know that you did know that - but I'm looking for leverage to win the counsellor over to my side, and public humiliation is a goldmine - (Manipulation 101 - duh!)
Arwen - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Of course, I was kidding about being mad at Stuart. I'm totally NOT mad at him. That was a joke. Um...yeah.

( hmm, mentioning the word "counsellor" to this girl is like Tarzan thrusting sticks of fire at the natives...)

"tan-ness"? Great title. Very funny stuff....."tan-ness"? Okay, that part was funny too.
Johnny D - December 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Watch out, Stuart, or Jane will start laughing at your own "stick of fire".

Hee...thanks, Claude!

Cancer is only funny if you don't know anyone who has died from it, Arwen. I hope you never do.
Ashkicksass - December 10, 2004 - Report this comment
I also hope you never die from Cancer, Arwen. Because "Cancer is funny" was TOTALLY the point of this song.
Arwen - December 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Tony...you are clearly TRYING to find reasons to hate me...this one was a long stretch.

From your comment, I am gathering that you do know someone who died of cancer...but that you thought cancer was funny until that happened. That's pretty horrible of you. I have never found cancer to be funny.
