Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sixteen Tons - parodies
Subject: RE: SEXED-TEEN TONES - Any pair o'deeze?
I never got around to writing the whole parody, but I'd always thought of the multi-lingual actor/folksinger Theodore Bikel in terms of "You Speak Sixteen Tongues". Probably, 16 was only the amount he spoke/sung fluently.
