Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Flip side of today's other smoosh.... Lesser-known "Smoky Places" video here.

Be upset, if knew
That his wife would scr*w

So, we have to hide:
Me and you, his bride
Smoky place, inside

Sorry that you wed
Got into wrong bed
Oh, no-no-no, woe!

Must avoid his ire;
People's prying eyes
Smoke is our disguise

But some day
He'll let you go away
Admit he's without your love

Knot untied:
Can flaunt our love with pride
Clos-et, come out, our love

Recognition, fear
So we dance in here

See, it's still the case:
When, adultery, face
Meet in smoky place

Smoke - hides - our - dis- -grace!

Ironically, the Surgeon General heartily approves of Phelpsian lungs-full of *this* particular 'bellowing' smoke! Furthermore, he grants TT the prestigious Five-Pack-a-Yay award!

[Ewe aren't above sincere plattery--are ewe?]

A parody sandwich between two golden pieces of gourmet smoosh! Well done indeed. ;D

Another masterful mash ménage.

So that's why everyone wants smoke in a bar? And in those legendary rooms where political bosses used to meet. Smoke screen. Of course, now there are infrared detectors so you can't hide anymore. If you get a chance go back to Monday and see what you think. Thanks.

TJC: I'm never above a ewe - usually, behind one. ;) And will accept any kind of plattery, esp. when filled with delicious eats. Flattery works well, tewe! :) (thanks)


Old Man Ribber: Nicely-descriptive imagery! Thanks!

John Barry: Not as complex as Tuesday's ménage à trois   (heh!) perhaps, but thanks.

Patrick: Yep. That, and alcohol -- don't people go home with someone who grosses them out the next morning, where you live? ;)
        Go back to Monday and look at *what*? Didn't see any songs by you there, so no clue what I'm supposed to look at and opine about. Thanks for v/c.

Smoky eyes are fashionable... smoky hair and clothes are not. ;) 555

Nothing like a Randy-vouz in some dark, secluded dancing closet...[Have you ever seen a dancing closet?] :)

Coco Puffs: Well said! :) A bottle of Chanel #5 for your v/c! :-D

Kool and the Gang: No, but I've seen some closeted people dancing. :-) (LOL @ nick!) Thanks for the prime v/c!

No "smokescreen" with my fivers!!!

I had a song about Fred Phelps on Monday's list. Michael said he thought I was talking about an Olympic swimmer or the TV character from Mission Impossible. Maybe you were following the same theory, that if you ignore songs about Fred, maybe he'll go away.

Mark Scotti: Accepted gladly!

Patrick: Are we talking about Monday, October 11, 2010? Just looked again, and saw no song by "Patrick McWilliams". I can email you a screenshot of what I see... Or you can just post here the URL -- the address of the page, the things that's in the bar in the upper right of the browser - like the URL of this page, for example (look in that upper-right bar)

And that will point me directly to it, without hunting through lists. To copy that, just click on that bar. If it turns all blue, cool. If not, you may have to put the pointer in it and click (mouse arrow changes to an I-shaped cursor) at either end, hold down the left mouse button, and drag the cursor across the entire address, turning it blue.

Once it's "highlighted" or "selected" (tech terms for "turning blue", then either click Edit, then click Copy -- or just press the Ctrl key and the "C" key, holding both down for a moment. This copies it to your "clipboard" (the computer's short-term memory).

Now come back here, put the cursor in the comment box and click to make it stay there. Then press Ctrl plus V, or else, Edit > Paste. This will paste the address here. Much easier than hand-typing.

Add your name, security code, etc. -- voila!

This is what ChuckyG kept asking you for when he didn't know what page you were complaining about. More than 100,000 pages on this site, but each of those addresses is unique to a single apge.

Unfortunately, I DK who Fred Phelps is, too, but if you can point me to the song, I'll look at it. Hope the info above is useful in general. Any more puter questions, don't hesitate to ask or to email. Cheers.

In case it wasn't clear, you have to have the song page that you want me to see, displayed in your browser before doing that.

(I could search your author page myself, but a true plug makes it easy for the plug-ee. If one is going to ask someone to read a song, one can at least provide the link to it, so the reader can copy it and paste it in their own browser. Hence TT's occasional comment -- "No plug. If interested, you know where to find it" -- i. e. on my Latest Comments page or by searching my Author page for the title.)

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
