Just last night I heard parody kings Tone Deaf Leopard (name's a parody for a start) sing their latest

Based on 'look what they've done to my song ma' and about the touristification of Stratford on Avon it becomes 'look what they've done to your town, Bill'

they have also rewritten Janis Joplin's Mercedes Benz to become 'the Wreck of the Napoli' after the container ship washed up in Devon

and the all time classic rewrite of Wimoweh to become 'Wee and a Shave'

Masterful - and their stage act is unparalleled

Well, at the risk of this seeming like a shameless plug, I've written _tons_ of parodies, many of them based on folk or popular songs. They are here:

Piers Plowman's Archers Parodies

The very first on the list might be of interest to people here, if any of them are.

Thanks for the heads up Raffles Bear. After Norcsalordie's rewrite of The Fox (We do the Wally Whyton version ) We have now "modernised" that this morning into The Urban Fox. Debut at the Fox And Hounds methinks.

Three-inch tool. I heard it before I heard what it was a parody of. Now that's a hilarious song.

Prince Edward County's Frere Brothers have many parodies of well known songs. I liked their version of Ian Tyson's Four Strong Winds, called Four Two-Fours. It's about cross border shopping:
"Think I'll go down to Rodchester
Shopping's good there in the mall,
Got some friends that I could go shopping for..."

The Frere Brothers also do one to the tune of Tell My Ma When I Get Home that goes:
"She's big and fat and she's my aunt
And she works down in the mushroom plant.
She picks mushrooms 1,2,3,
Got a light on her hat so she can see."

Here's my Silicone Cindy.

D
You're my Silicone Cindy
The Girl that I desire
G
a beautiful celluloid kewpie doll
          A7       D
don't sit near the fire

D         G
Get along home Silicone Cindy
          D
Get along home Silicone Cindy
          G
Get along home Silicone Cindy
    D       A7       D
But don't sit near the fire


They overdid your eyelid tuck
your eyes they stare so wide
They couldn't find anything for your butt
so they use Naugahide

Get along home Silicone Cindy
Get along home Silicone Cindy
Get along home Silicone Cindy
Covered with Naugahide

Your breasts are made of silicone
your hair is nylon twine
your teeth are made of porcelain
the rest of you's all mine

Get along home Silicone Cindy
Get along home Silicone Cindy
Get along home Silicone Cindy
the rest of you's all mine

This surgical augmentation
on you looks really grand
I'll have to try some for myself
now you don't fit in my hand

Get along home Silicone Cindy
Get along home Silicone Cindy
Get along home Silicone Cindy
Now you don't fit in my hand.

Another of mine

Shopping Cart

With apologies to Connie Francis.
Tune "My heart has a mind of its own"


At the local grocery store, I found a shopping cart
But one of its wheels just wouldn't start
although the other three, they all turn left you see
Guess my cart has a mind of its own.

I wanted aisle thirteen to buy some baking goods
but these wheels, they don't turn the way they should
and so I ended up, in personal feminine stuff
Guess my cart has a mind of its own.

The butcher fancies me, each time I pass him by
he looks me up and down and winks his eye.

I tell this cart of mine to find the checkout line
but it wants to go around just one more time.
I've been around this store eleven times or more
Guess my cart has a mind of its own.
