Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I couldn’t sell this to
Them, though I tried.
The record cops said, “Nuts to you;
We ain’t buyin’
And we’re denyin’.

“We ain’t gonna hand you
‘Most Parodies’ crown
Effort didn’t land you
In our book, man, so please now, stand down!”

I couldn’t sell my slew,
So now I whine
And whine.

Rue and ul-
ulate, “Boo-
Hoo, boo-hoo.
Why did you turn me down?

“Guess you don’t share
Love of parody
In London town!”

It’s clear the
Attempt to sell this slew—
A waste of time.
