Parody Song Title:

"Oh What a Ribber—This Tune Is Good!"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Oh what a ribber; this tune is good!
Its grand mocking wows me so.
It’s coarse—that’s OK! It’s parody day;
Its wryness grips me, whoa!
Oh, a rib-tickler; this tune is good!
My loud titters do grow.
From out my nose
The snot fast blows
And rains down onto the flo’.

Oh how I titter, this tune is good!
It has first-rate word play.
He who wrote this thing
Is parody king—
Hurrah for swank-lyrics day.
Oh how I snicker, this tune is good!
Bombast in it—no way!
I’m digging its sound
While swigging gin down;
Its lyrics ranked 6, I’d say.
