Thread Name: Lyr Req: Black velvet band PARODY
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Black velvet band PARODY
Years ago (just about the time of this thread beginning, I think) I wrote a parody for a mother/daughter duo... chorus they sang together, and the first verse....

In a neat little shire they call Carver
Much pleasure and song have we found
And any an hour of sweet happiness
We've spent in that neat little town

(mother) 'Til one day good fortune befell me
And mischief took me by the hand
And I shocked all my friends and relations
Because of some black leather pants

(*His eyes they shone like diamonds
He looked like a lord of the land
And his hair hung over wide shoulders
As he walked by in black leather pants)

(mother) Well I was out strolling one evening
Not meaning to go very far
When I met with a handsome young devil
As he chugged down a beer at the bar

I watched him go out the courtyard
As my heart it began to dance
And the temperature seed to go soaring
As he walked by in black leather pants


(daughter) Next morning I stood there waiting
At the doorstep for her to appear. I said
You never came home last night
And it caused me a great deal of fear.

(daughter) They say you were seen at the Boar's Head
And they tell me you danced every dance
And it seems that you left for the evening
With some guy wearing black leather pants


(both) So come all ye sweet noble ladies
I'll have ye take warning from me
Whenever you're out on the liquor
Take care that you never are seen

(both) Many months have gone by since this happened
And the story belongs to the past
(mother) But no one will let me forget the night
I fell for those black leather pants!
