The Lyrics

Promiscuity has its problems. The idea of this parody came from Swedish-Dutch troubadour Cornelis Vreswijk and his "Incestvisan".
I met a guy named John last year, oh Lord, I was in love
we thought about engagement, I was like a turtledove
When I told 'bout him to my dad, my old man, he said "No!"
I'm also Johnny's father and it's incest, tell you so!"

Hey Daddy-o,
what libido!
Tomcat on the go

Now Brandon was my new love, and I was feeling great
We fell in love, and soon I found myself in blessed state
His mom said "Get abortion, or your baby will be dork
You have the common daddy and you really shouldn't pork!"

Hey Daddy-o,
what libido!
Tomcat on the go

Now Tom and Dick and Harry, Bruce and Jim and Timothy
It seems that all the boys in town do share my family
My daddy, he knew all their moms and sowed his seed too well
I cannot find a husband and it feels like living hell

Hey Daddy-o,
what libido!
Tomcat on the go

Now all you friends at Am-I-Right, you know I'm feeling blue
My sexual life is nought and I don't know just what to do
'cause all the boys in town they are my brothers, can you see
and dating them is incest, and they cannot marry me

Hey Daddy-o,
what libido!
Tomcat on the go

I then went to my mother, on her shoulder did I weep
I told her 'bout my problem and I am in trouble deep
My mom said me "Your daddy is a tomcat of worst kind
But he's not your biological, so take whom you can find!"

Hey Daddy-o,
what libido!
Tomcat on the go

There is not comedic about incest and its victims. 1-1-1

About 20 years ago a Kansas City doctor was running an in-vitro fertilization clinic for couples who were having difficulty conceiving children. It was discovered that the doctor was using his own sperm and may have fathered hundreds of children in the Midwest, none of whom was aware of their true paternity. A situation as you describe could be a possibility. I recall seeing his car on the street in KC Missouri. The license plate read "VITAE".

There's NOTHING funny about incest. I've known a few people who've done it and it's extremely disgusting. MY GOD, IT'S HORRIBLE. THIS AIN'T NO JOKING MATTER : (

Susanna - Born of brave heart, like a Warrior Queen. You slay the Dragons who dare block your path or shadow to go do battle with Gods and Demons ( before breakfast if need be) Sharp is the pen you wield, swift and powerful like a mighty sword to pierce hardest armor and stone walls put up by mortals for shields. Take no prisoners but for a few hearts along your way......and that story I'll save for another day

First to everyone: Get a sense of humour. I do wholeheartedly agree that incest is a depravity of the worst kind and those who pork forbidden relatives should put either to prison or mental hospital.

But my song was about SATIRE: that is, gallows humour on dead serious issues. The protagonist's father was both an adulterer and philanderer, making life difficult for his children because none of them were eligible to marry (for apparent genetic reasons). Relation between half-siblings is an incest itself - and, unfortunately, such people whch are not aware of being half-siblings, often experience really strong sexual pull between each other. The "sting" of the song was that the protagonist's mother was a cheater as well...And what Patrick described - a doctor doing in vitro fertilizations like that could well lead into such unknowingly incestuous relationships with disastrous results to children.

I agree incest is extremely disgusting and should always be a police issue.

Let's say there is a reason why "motherfscker" is a profanity and "unclefscker" even more so.

And there is also a reason why my brother and my husband love me in different ways. It's called the Westermarck Effect. My brother would never see me as a sexual entity, but always a little sister and someone to cherish and protect and be best friends with. My husband loves me both spiritually and carnally - after all, he is the father of our children. And I love them both. The reason is that I grew up together with my brother and a strong Westermarck bond developed between us. The same effect also explains why child marriages usually fail. But I met my hubby only when I was adult already, and eligible to carnal relationships.

An unfortunate incestuous relationship between siblings who are not aware of each other is described both in The Silmarillion (Túrin and Nienor) and in The Kalevala (Kullervo and his sister). Both end in disaster.

I know how you feel Susanna as I sometimes write about Third Reich brutality as satire. Some know that it is a parody and some think I am a pro-fascist Nazi using this site and format to promote Nazism. Not so. I am not even a TR apologist as most of my TR parodies deal with weapon systems which are neutral and/or historical. I give you 555 for the parody itself and not as a topic judgement. Still, incest in any form destroys people :(
Outraged - April 12, 2014 - Report this comment
Rob never fails to glorify TR ingenuity and to spin their weapons systems as futuristic superiority, enhanced by occult recitations. To him, America was a late entry into WW 2 whose only attribute was an advanced capitalist system which was able to overwhelm Aryan supermen with brute force arms production. He belittles our greatest generation. He is thoroughly enamored by the tinker toys of a degenerate regime. His Reich came tumbling down ideologically when Jesse Owens won four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics and the American Jewish champions Marty Glickman and Sam Stoler were not allowed to compete when Avery Brundage acceded to Hitler's demands.

Susanna, I have no sense of humor about incest, and your intellectualization about it is offensive. In my world, the subject is beyond taboo and reaches into the sickest of souls. Hardly the stuff of parody. Why don't you try a jolly satirical parody about the Holocaust? Sounds like grist for your mill.

Outraged, don't tempt me to make one. Be careful on what you wish - Holocaust, in all its tragic, could indeed give good fodder for satires. I remember one such satire, "Sonderkommando nach Dachau", from my student years. It represents extremely bad taste.

@Outraged, by accusation: 1) The weapons of the TR WERE futuristic in 1945 and some continued to be postwar (hence classifications of 75-100 years for German flight disc tech and the purpose of Jonastal S.III). Blitzkrieg combined arms changed the way the world's powers fight and the weapons that plagued the Allies still plague the modern world as used by terrorists and insurgents waging asymmetrical warfare (i.e. The AK-47 derived from the STG-44 series of assault rifles and the RPG-7 derived from the Panzerfaust line of AT weapons)! 2) America DID enter both World Wars late and each time was not continentally bombed at all allowing vast production of arms. Germany the size of ONE US state produced a vast array of sophisticated weapons but could not make the numbers needed to fight everyone. But they tried anyway using the secret weapons route. 3) The GG was no better than the others that fought the Nazis in WW2. They too were immoral, prejudiced, and Anti-Semitic for the purposes I already described in my response earlier. It is an insult to discount Britain and the USSR's contribution to defeating Germany as well as all the individuals and resistance/partisan groups in Europe. And it still took 6 years to defeat Germany anyway. 4) Lastly, most of the German people and even soldiers did not believe in the Nazi Aryan Ideal. Jesse Owens made friends at the '36 Olympics b/c his German competitors admired him and by mid-war even the strict Waffen SS was taking foreign volunteers of mixed race and of foreign religion. The persecution of Jews was appalling of course, but more appalling is the fact that nations like Britain, France, and even the US were Anti-Semitic too, refusing Jews who wanted to emigrate to those nations prewar. During the war, the French turned in Jews to the German Army, SS, Gestapo, and Einsatzkommandos. When some survived the Holocaust the French often refused to give back Jewish homes and businesses that they had taken over and refused to take the Jews from the Exodus 47 boat; instead, they had the boat taken back to occupied Germany! But at least that led directly to the state of Israel. And if not for Germany in two World Wars, no Balfour Declaration and no return to Israel as prophesied in the Bible. So in conclusion Outraged, it seems that you didn't think your accusations through and have limited Allied-propaganda knowledge of the actual events. Furthermore, my TR parodies are not a majority of the nearly 2400 over 3 years and I also provide information on all nations regarding weaponry and historical battles, something you conveniently forgot or omitted. Come back when you are more prepared next time. Sorry Susanna that this has to be posted to your thread and I agree that ANY topic can be parodied. I took hits for the Dark Knight Massacre, but am proud that I had no fear to parody such a tragic event. One might say to be a good parodist one MUST tackle these issues.

Why do I have the feeling that the people complaining are one and the same?

The topic of this song is from a very old story I once read in a book of jokes and humor. I am fairly sure it was turned into a folk song of the type performed at Renaissance fairs in the United States.

Any topic can be funny. See also Tom Lerher's "Oedipus Rex" for another funny song on this subject. I think if the title of the parody was not so blunt, there would have been ZERO negative comments. Anyone wanna guess the haters didn't even read the parody?

Speaking of which, I once did a parody song about Oedipus Rex called "I No Longer Have Eyes 'Cuz of You." It's pretty early in my Amiright career -- Submission #17

Serge Gainsburgh and his daughter Charlotte did a song called 'Lemon Incest' in 1984. In the video they pronounce their 'love' for each other. This was banned on Francophone networks. Now it looks like Donald and Ivanka. I think I'm gonna get sick. :....(
