Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Umm, this would be, uhh... the 100th parody I've posted here. (The statistics page seems to update a little late sometimes.) Wanted to keep the flavor of the OS because I love it. OS lyrics here. Midi here. =There is an extra set of two verses and a chorus in the parody vs. OS or Midi.
Parody One-Hundred
Some think I am stranger --
They think I am stranger
Than a bewitched baboon

But somehow I know
I know even then
That I'll keep submitting
Again and again

Parody One-Hundred
Some might have been laughing
Hope some have been laughing
At Tommy Turtle tune

And thanks to you both
For reading my poem
For all of my life I
Will make this my home!

Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
"Fool" is the reason
"Wise man" -- Not! am I

Parody One-Hundred
Dude I dig: Dee Range-r;
Ass, not Babe in manger --
-- Am I who lob lampoon

And thanks for the laughs
All, alvin's or AF's;
"Five" thanks for forgiving
One-half of my gaffes!

Once you have found it,
Found such funny site,
Once you have found it
Can't leave AmIRight

Parody One-Hundred
Criticize or praise it
Any way you phrase it
To laughter, I'm so prone

'Cause, laugh and the world
Laughs with you, it's known;
Whenever you cry, you
Will cry... all... a-... -lone!

Once you have found it,
Try with all your might,
Once you have found it

There have been a zillion covers. My favorite is by Jay and the Americans. (Dee, sorry for tweaking your name, but the rhyme with OS lyric made it irresistible :) © 2006 Tommy Turtle.

One hundred already? That's nearly Barry-stats... Congrats and all that, TT

great achievement so early TT - looks like you'll overtake me by Thursday - Malcolm's looking over his shoulder too - you turtles have always been such fast critters - 555

Congratulations on reaching the century mark. Slow and steady wins the race. (Yes, there are still unused turtle jokes out there.)

555 passed me like I was sitting still...which I usually am....coma-tose (and fingers too...groan). And don't worry about tweaking my's good to see my name in print somewhere besides post office walls, newspaper crime sections, and police blotters :-)

congrats on 100 and thanks for the nod

Congrats on reaching 3 figures, and thanks for the info on TOS. Rodgers and Hammerstein produced more great songs than I can remember. My favorites (or is that "My Favorite Things"?) come from The Sound Of Music.

Y'know, i didn't even pay attention to the 100-mark for all of my parodies. Technically, counting all songs that are grouped under separate headings and disregarding albums, I have submitted 274 songs (plus 3 contributing/collaborative songs).

Phil Alexander, thanks.
Stuart McArthur and Michael Pacholek, thanks; want to say that I don't see this as a race. Tommy brings me ideas and we enjoy working one or two a day into a (hoped) finished product.... It's just a really fun thing to do, and giving laughs to others (if any, lol) is the bonus.
Dee Range, thanks.... you might have had a few more time challenges lately than the rest of us; so glad when you can visit here... Actually, I got your name off a restroom wall. "For a good time, call..." (Don't take that as an insult; I had pulled my usual trick of tucking everything inside my shell and sneaking into the Ladies' Room ;-)
alvin rhodes, thanks, and as said, thanks for the laughs, and you're welcome.
Steve K., thanks. Lots of SOM parodies at this site (not to be confused with S&M; some of those too), incuding "Favorite Things (I haven't done that yet), and, of course, "Supercal" (did twice; I thought it was a requirement for admission).
Agrimorfee, congrats.
What? - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Agrimorphine, is that a compliment? Sounds like you're making fun of Tommy, while plugging the fact that you have written more. You may have 274(plus 3), but you did it in what, 4 years? TT has accomplished his in 4 do the math. And while you plugged your own number, I see you didn't vote for his song, either. What's up with that??? I'm sorry, but Tommy Turtle has proved his chops, and if I do say so myself, he is in a class of parody writer that far exceeds your ability. If I may quote Shakespeare here, your comment reeks of Macbeth, act 5, scene 5.................."Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing."

555, got lost on the midi, so I just read without it. I'm at 98 parodies right now, so 2 more to go for me.
PMS - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Congrats Tommy! I don't know how many of them I've seen, but I liked 100% of those.
Uh-oh - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Supercal was from Mary Poppins, of course. You see Julie Andrews once,.... all her movies look alike, especially when you have your head in up the wrong end of your shell. - TT

Good to see you've reached the big C (the benign kind) with the big P's....and thanks for the billboard...I like the mellow mood of this parody...and it's very smoothly done..
Cat - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Geez, Tommy! I've been here longer than you, but I haven't even hit 25! Oh well. I've always believed in quality over quantity anyway. Good job! (it'll probably take ME three more years...)

Dear What?, While my comment may have been just a little immodest, it was in no way a slam on our esteemed Mr./s. Turtle (forgive me TT, i don't want to assume any gender) . I am proud of what TT has accomplished in such a short time, considering my # of parodies dates as far back as 1983. I just thought it was interesting to share, as the subject at hand was concerning milestones of submissions. In any event, I don't necessarily comment and/or vote for every song that I visit. 555 is deserved, and given.
Whatever - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Thank you for your clarification, Mr/Mrs. Agrimorphee. It would have been nice to say that in the first place, instead of beating your own drum , not congratulating him, and not even voting or commenting on his song or achievement. You said you don't necessarily vote or comment on every song you visit.....that's true enough here the first time you visited, which was simply to plug you self....but on behalf of TT, who is in no way, shape, or form, involved in my own comments, nor even knows who I am, I accept your explanation and forgive your immodesty.
Agrimorfee - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
My last comment on this issue: If you believe that people here only leave comments that are praising and complimenting, and not to plug themselves... ^-^. But, anyway, I'm sometimes limited in my time to make cogent, complete and complimentary comments. Sometimes it comes out wrong, and for that, I do apologize. Moving on, then...
what? - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
BTW, MR./MRS TT...great parody, to which I vote three fives. Being a relative newcomer myself, I commend you for your skill, and in reaching 100 parodies. That is quite an achievement, one I will never reach myself.

Congrats to the turtle! That's a very fast pace for parodies. 555
TT - April 29, 2006 - Report this comment
Stephen Harrington, thanks... same as mentioned before, I wish Midis would emphasize melody more and not bury it in background.
PMS, thanks... you keep that up, ya just might find yourself the victim of a TTribuTTE some day!... don't say I didn't warn ya :)
AFW, thanks.... and you're welcome :)
Cat, thanks... are you batting back to me my "quality/quanTitty" comments about your own endowments? :) :) ;-)
Larry Hensley, thanks... maybe this stuff is taking up too much time from working, eating, sleeping, etc., but too much fun not to...

Agrimorfee, thanks for elaborating, and What?/Whatever, thanks for going to bat for me... I don't want anyone to feel obliged or forced to vote, and certainly not to feel pressured into positive votes. Ag, I haven't always had time to read all of your stuff either. Apology not necessary, but accepted and the issue forgotten.

W/W/what?, thanks also for your own comments and votes.... Never say "never"!

Congratulation on 100 parodies here TT. You're right, very few who enter here for any amount of time will ever escape. Then again, who would want to? ;-) 5s
Tommy Turtle - May 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Red Ant, thanks, and you're right - it's like the Bates Motel, the Roach Motel, the Motel California, etc. - people check in, they don't check out.

"who enter here": Perhaps we should have an inscription on the home page like the one on the gates of Hell: "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here"
from "The Inferno", by Dante (Alighieri), (1265-1321 A. D.), a really cool book describing Hell, if you haven't read it.
