Subject: Parody of Blowing in the Wind
From: winniemih

Recently on The Prairie Home Companion I heard a duet called the Chenille Sisters sing this. It was hilarious. The first line was "How many roads must a man drive down before he admits he is lost?"....the refrain went "the answer my friend I cannot comprehend," (repeat) I was driving at the time, and laughing so hard I didn't get any of the other verses, except near the end of the song "how many times can a man channel surf before the remote burns out, how many sounds can a man's body make before he must sleep on the couch?" Does anyone in Mudcat Land have the lyrics?

How much wood must a woodchuck chuck before he chucks enough wood,>BR>And how many knees must a Negro grow...
And how many poles must a Polack lock before...
The answer my friend is blowing out your end...

Art, I remember Fred Holstein singing a version like yours at the Montmartre on Chicago Ave. c. 1963. The only line I retained was the tag "The answer is blowing out your end." What is the origin of that particular parody and do you have complete lyrics?

With apologies to winniemih... I realize this is not the requested song but a different parody.

Then there's the kid's version reported by Michael Cooney:
"The ants are my friends, they're blowin' in the wind..."

What the heck - transcribed from the RealAudio show:

Blowin' in the Wind Parody
(Chenille Sisters)

How many roads must a man drive down
Before he admits he is lost
Why when a man becomes married is he
Unable to find his own socks
How many times will it take till he knows
He's seen the Three Stooges enough
The answer my friend I cannot comprehend
The answer I cannot comprehend.

How many shows can a man surf through
Before the remote burns out
Why does he think that an intimate gift
Is a Dustbuster Plus for the house
How many sounds can a man's body make
Before he sleeps on the couch
The answer my friend is take two aspirin
The answer is take two aspirin

Why when we go for a romantic drive
Do we wind up at Builders' Square again
How many nights will he leave the seat up
So I land on cold porcelain
How men really feel is a mystery to me
And probably a mystery to them
The answer, girlfriends, is driving me to gin
The answer is driving me to gin

Mark, I don't think there were any more words. The one verse made it's point, was sort of burted out and then drifted off into the sunset--hopefully on an away from the campfire breeze...

Of course, that should've read "blurted out".
