The Lyrics

It's just an idea. I recently realized that 30-70% of my parodies are political in some way (I've never taken the time to inventory my submissions). I'd like to propose that on one day a week we post no songs of a political nature. Most of us who write such parodies have proven that we can create quality works on other subjects. Blatantly stealing the concept from workplaces who have Dress-Down Fridays, It might produce some excellent results. Of course I might be wrong. Somebody somewhere thought New Coke was a good idea! ;D

Let's have Politics-Free Thursdays,
Much as jobs have those weekly dress-down days.
One day without the drama
Of writing 'bout Obama.
A day to give this Old Man Rib a chance to change his ways.

Confine our wit to other subjects,
Like A.F.Won whose work is a delight.
Let's save our digs and praise
For all the other days
And have one day of peace on amiright.

Let's have Politics-Free Thursdays.
It might be fun to try a thing that new,
Like Rob and J.B.'s wordfests
And amirighter contests.
I know that I'd be game for this. I'm hoping you'd be too.

One day to step down from our soapbox.
I'm betting that good songs will still abound.
No matter what's your side
One day without the snide
Won't put us 'righters six feet underground!

The original song has been recorded by such diverse performers as The Andrews Sister, Faron Young, K.T. Oslin, and...believe it or Bill Haley and The Comets in 1963. ;D

DKTOS but sounds like a good idea. I haven't written political parodies anyway, haven't even wrote parodies for years. I'll have to start again

Nicely said, OMR, though I'd vote for Thursdays as the *only* 'political parody' day given the level of vitriol out there—I know, I know—my views aren't exactly PC (parodically correct!).

unique topic and parody...I go along with TJC..politics, one day a week...but then you'd get into the Bill Clinton thing, " of what is is, or what isn't is political

I agree with con-guy, against limiting First Amendment to six days/week.
@TJC: Thursday is named for Thor, Norse god of thunder, war & strength!

I'm willing to bet a lot of my political parodies have been written ON a Thursday - but I'm happy to have a pol-free day whenever. :^) Liked this one a lot. I read/watch the news to find out what the media think is going on in US politics - and then I read your and other parodies here to find out what's REALLY going on ;^)
