Thread Name: Lyr Req: Greensleeves - parodies
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Parody of Greensleeves
Verse to that one went"I found my love in a grocery shop/Selling eggplant and pickles and bottles of pop/She offered me some asparagus tips/And I fell for the smile on her ruby red lips." Also, in the third line of the chorus "I saved" substitutes for "she gave".I remember this by the Brothers Four of the Lettermen or someone like that, probably making fun of folkies (remember "The Smothers Brothers: Think Ethnic!"?
