Good morning, Challenge!rs!! I do hope that you kept your senses sharpened after the last hoo-haw with Santa -- you're gonna need all your synapses snapping for this one . . .

No Room On The Xerox For Virgin Berths -- Bosses at Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Mobile scuppered plans to have photocopiers at their Christmas party so staff could scan their bottoms.

The idea was to recreate a television advertisement for the firm featuring former All Saints star Melanie Blatt, in which she does the same.

But the stunt was dropped after the company's legal advisers stepped in and ruled it unsafe.

More than 1,000 Virgin Mobile employees attended the firm's Christmas party on Tuesday at a nightclub in the Wiltshire town of Trowbridge.

It featured performances from the pop group Liberty and DJ Boy George.

A spokeswoman for the firm said she had heard about the idea to install reinforced photocopiers in the club as a gag after the success of the advertisement.

She said she understood it had come from someone else in their communications department, but was rejected by legal experts.

"Somebody had been talking about it early on, but it wouldn't have been allowed for legal reasons," the spokeswoman said. "It's unfortunate because it would be a good laugh."

And it appears that the ban-the-bums barristers might have an ally in the form of Officials at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, who say workers risk cutting themselves on broken copier glass.

They say the Virgin mobile phone ad of Melanie Blatt photocopying her backside is "daft and irresponsible".

Spokesman Roger Vincent is warning office workers not to be tempted to make photocopied backsides "this year's festive trend".

He told The Sun: "Inhibitions are loosened after a few drinks and people show off. We don't want copying backsides to become this year's festive trend.

"Someone could find themselves in a hospital casualty ward this Christmas instead of at home with their families.

"Sitting on a photocopier is very dangerous. We don't want to be killjoys but advise people to stick to good old-fashioned mistletoe."


Go For It (gently!), Challenge!rs!!

Not ready for a Pulitzer Prize (or a Pullet Surprise, either), but I just had to leap up and expose myself in the following fashion:

The Copied Bummer
words: (Genie reluctantly admits to having penned them)
music:  LDB

Come, they told me -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
Up on this scan machine -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
Our bottoms we will fax -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
(If we don't get the ax) -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum.
Like our Melanie -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
Faxing her bum.

Blessed "Virgin,"-- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
I'm a poor employee -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
I have no expertise-- -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
Your markets to increase -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum.
Shall I fax to you,--bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
My fine bum?

Boy George nodded,--bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
You b*x and ass look fine!--bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
Then the RSPA,--bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
Took our machine away, -- bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum.
"You might cut your *ss,--bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
On our glass!" --bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bumbum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum!

A parody of "Down By The Liffeyside" which is itself a parody of "Down By The Sally Gardens".

THE COPYING OF MY BACKSIDE
It was to the office Christmas do, my colleague and I did stray
The pair of us were roarin' drunk, been drinkin' since the dawnin' of the day
We were both well-oiled and a bit shop-soiled, scuttered, bollixed, almost paralysed
Ah but now, by Christ, I am paying the price, for the copying of my backside

Well Jeanie was pissed on Irish Mist, Diamond White, vodka and Red Bull
"Have you got a Black Bush?" The barmaid blushed, thinking I was on the pull
Then the landlord's shout "Get the pair of yez out! I have had about enough of you!"
And we laughed till we cried as he turfed us outside and we staggered to the Christmas do

I'm not much of a dancer, I'm more of a romancer and under the flashing lights
Jeanie's face assumed a certain grace I almost didn't recognise
I damn nearly said "Ah now Jean, you're drop dead, how would you fancy an oul' shift?"
But she whispered in my ear "Johnny, come over here" and she gestured towards the goods lift

We stopped at Lower Ground and we made not a sound as we crept towards the reprograhics room
I pictured a scene, it was torrid and obscene, the pair of us hard at it in the gloom
"Do you know why we're here?" "I do indeed, my dear. It's clear that you are gaggin' for a ride ?"
"Ah, John, go on. You're having me on. I want to copy your backside"

My ego deflated, I wouldn't be sated with loving provided by Jean
But I'm not one to sulk, so I hefted my bulk on to the copying machine
With my Ys round my feet, I rested my bare seat, on top of the photocopy glass
Till ? with a loud retort ? I am sorry to report the machine gave way beneath my ass

The machinery still hummed and jaggin' my bum were splinters and shrapnel and shards
I was wedged good and tight, I looked a quare sight and more humiliation on the cards
Jean pulled and tugged, but still I was snug, "It's no use Jean" at last I sighed
"You must go tell the boss, and I'll have to pay the cost for the copying of my backside"

Around me they flocked, and the flashbulbs went pop, tears of laughter fell like drops of rain
Trapped like a baste, naked from the waist, never been so belittled or ashamed
Just as Moses parted the Red Sea, my boss strode up to me and the crowds made way and stood aside
"Come the New Year you'll be out on your ear for the copying of your backside"

Two fine offerings from two fine folks! Here's the first slate of Silver B.L.O.B.s, then --

To Genie, who might not be ready for Pullet(!), but who's definitely ready for a Cow Chip!, for this rhythmical delight:

And to derrymacash, showing us all his 'best' side (oh!) with this lyrical little lilt:

Well Jeanie was pissed on Irish Mist, Diamond White, vodka and Red Bull
"Have you got a Black Bush?" The barmaid blushed, thinking I was on the pull

I've just re-read the song above and actually it's a bit of a squeeze to get it to scan with "Down By The Liffeyside". I think I was writing it with the tune of McAlpine's Fusiliers playing on my mental jukebox. (The two tunes are quite similar.) Anyway ? the words of my submission above seem to fit quite well to McAlpine's Fusiliers ?.

For my second submissoon, I have parodied quite an obscure song. On Stump's 1988 album, "A Fierce Pancake" (any album with a Flann O'Brien/Myles Na Gopaleen reference in its title gets house-room in my collection), is the glorious, raucous "Charlton Heston (Put His Vest On)".

RICHARD BRANSON (Kept His Pants On)

To celebrate our year of labour
Every worker and his neighbour
Received a gilt-edged invitation
To come and have a few libations
Champagne, sherry, vodkatinis
Wine and gin and beer

Paper hats and party poppers
On the stage, the new chart-toppers
But lads and lassies keep it tasteful
Keep it clean and keep it chasteful
Pass The Parcel, Spin The Bottle
But please don't Shoot The Moon

Richard Branson kept his pants on

Please don't photograph your botty
That would drive poor Richard potty
Safety first he's always urgin'
The hairy-featured boss of Virgin
Safety first and mind your manners
We've standards to maintain

Beware the photocopy's flash
It might turn your arse to ash
It can sizzle it can singe
It might barbecue your minge
So let's respect our office systems
And not give them abuse

Richard Branson kept his pants on

Do not copy do not fax
That which lies within your kecks
Frankly it's of no interest
To see with what you have been blessed
Your arse may be big and hairy
You may have a gorgeous Mary
Your manhood may be like a club
Or may be like a pencil stub
But if the urge within you rises
To photograph your bumses, thighses
Please resist the lewd temptation
Or be prepared for castigation
The safety man is standing by
On our machines he'll keep an eye
If used in ways that are not intended
He shall see that you're suspended
Or maybe fire you, there and then
Can't say for certain it depends
Either way, you must measure
If the risk is worth the pleasure
But it's a risk I'll not be chancin'
Richard Branson kept his pants on

The Xeroxed Burglar

(Tune: The Boston Burglar)


I was born and raised in Wiltshire,
A county I love well,
Brought up by honest parents,
The truth to you I'll tell,
I was raised by honest parents,
And brought up tenderly
Until I turned to burgling
At the age of twenty three!!

I burgled stores and condos,
And manses, halls and homes!
I swiped the stew from kitchen stoves,
And made their mommas moan!
I picked up gems from bedrooms,
As a burglar, I was hot!
Until this winter brought me down
With a bad case of the trots.

As I softly stole into a house,
And softly climbed the stairs,
A cruel virus seized my gut
And took me unawares!
Although I stole the owners' clothes,
His jewelry, too, by Jeeze,
I had to leave there in the dark,
My stinking BVDs!

I went back to my day job sir,
By gastric tonics healed,
I was just in time to join the fun
At the Xmas party deal.
We were drinking jolly Xmas grog
And minds began to rot,
We started xeroxing our bums,
And passing 'round the shots.

Now, I've never been a party poop,
I'm in there with the best!
And so I rode that Xerox screen,
And got "copied" with the rest.
And when the grog had worn me down,
I staggered home at three,
And I never dreamed that party game
My downfall soon would be.

For just after I had left the bash,
They were busted by the fuzz !
Who took and swept up all the trash,
Evidence, they said it was.
And some bright dick had had the thought,
By chance, he did allow,
That one among those Xerox prints
Seemed familiar, somehow!!

My character was taken,
The shot was my downfall,
One of the busted office girls
Had recognized a ball,
And when I woke up next morning,
Three coppers hollered "Freeze!"
They had tracked me down from the traces brown,
In those goddamned BVDs!!

So you who have your liberty,
Pray keep it bright and clean,
And do not leave your buttmarks on
The copying machine,
For if you do, you know you will
Find yourself like me,
A-serving out your thirty years
in the penitentiary.

You know, a certain Bard of the Fam remarked to me the other day that the quality and talent in the Song Challenge!s had risen remarkably in the last few months. And I couldn't agree more! Whether you all write just a few quick lines, or go whole hog and give us a ten minute ballad, your amazing imaginations produce some mighty wonderful songs. Well done, my darlin's!

Now, here are the latest Silver B.L.O.B.s for two of my personal heart throbs (hahaha):

To derrymacash, a chara chóir, for this Spittoon qualifying verse:

Paper hats and party poppers
On the stage, the new chart-toppers
But lads and lassies keep it tasteful
Keep it clean and keep it chasteful
Pass The Parcel, Spin The Bottle
But please don't Shoot The Moon



And to dear Amos for these lithsome lyrical laundry lines:

My character was taken,
The shot was my downfall,
One of the busted office girls
Had recognized a ball,
And when I woke up next morning,
Three coppers hollered "Freeze!"

On my way into work every morning I pass a statue of Oscar Wilde. I read McGrath's link. The two combined and sparked off the following ditty.

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY's BACKSIDE
In the world's mighty gall'ry of pictures
Hang scenes that are painted from life
There's pictures of joy and of sorrow
There's pictures of peace and of strife
There's pictures of youth and of beauty
Old age and the blushing young bride
All hang on the wall, but the saddest of all
Is the picture of Dorian Gray's backside

CHORUS
It's a picture of Dorian Gray's backside
All wrinkled and flabby and grey
Not perky nor carried with pride
But saggy and hairy they say
It's kept under wraps in a garret
Hidden from eyes that might pry
No joy to behold, it is aged and old
The picture of Dorian Gray's backside

It was late of a Christmas evening
To a party I had an invite
There was nibbling and chatting and drinking
I drank, had a chat, ate a bite
Then noticed the sudden grand entrance
Of that rake, the famed Dorian Gray
It was clear he'd had many's the tipple
From his wobble and topple and sway

CHORUS
He mingled and blathered and swaggered
Then I saw Mr G disappear
I followed him down to the basement
Where the cad photocopied his rear!
And then, to both our amazement
We heard a disembodied voice
"You may leave now, me boul' young Dorian
Or stay ? I give you a choice!

CHORUS

"I know you are proud of your buttocks"
The genie continued "And so
I'll allow them to be preserv-ed
From this point, no older they'll grow
Hang this photograph up in your attic
And as the years advance
Pert will remain the posterior part
That's shielded from view in your pants"

CHORUS

And lo the decades roll onwards
And time our vanity mocks
Dorian's face bears many the trace
Of the beating of the clock
But though his oul' body is ravaged
By the cruel assault of the years
Still pert and perky and handsome
Is Dorian's well-preserved rear

Apologies to any secretaries, or people called Gloria, for what follows. This is a work of pure imagination.

Be merry, hale and hearty
Music, food and drink as well

Whose dress was oh, so thrilling
Who eyed up the office lads
And looked like she was willing?

Who pigged out on all the food?
Who ate enough for twenty?
Who drank much more than she should?
It looked like she'd had plenty!

Yes, she found the fax machine
Her rear to photocopy
Took a picture quite obscene
And stored it on a floppy

This tune is to the air of the Ducks of Magheralin (or as it has been inadvertently dubbed in a current thread, The Ducks of Marilyn). It goes out to me oul' china, ard mhacha. Nollaig shona, a h-Oilibhéar a chara chairde agus beannacht duit.

It was at the office Christmas do, in the photocopy room
There was giggling and tittering as we gathered in the gloom
Now and then the oul machine would make its fateful pass
With a flash like lightning as a colleague photographed his ass

And then it came my turn to climb aboard the oul' machine
To drop my pants (and thanks to Christ my underwear was clean!)
But "Oh!" my colleagues gasped in awe and shrank from me in fright
As I removed my boxers the room was bathed with light

CHORUS
Cos the sun shines out my ass, yes the sun shines out my ass
A light so bright and pure and white it cannot be surpassed
The subject of conjecture, "Is it true?" some folks have asked
Well, believe your eyes, you girls and guys, the sun shines out my ass!

How this solar object came to lodge in my rear end
Is truly a great mystery but I shall not pretend
That its presence causes bother, it's truly not a blight
I'm the only man on earth with a built-in source of light

I was standing by the ocean, the ships they sailed and steamed
Kept free of any danger by the lighthouse and its beam
But the lightbulb failed, the keeper wailed "The ships will all be sunk"
"Have no fear, me keeper dear, I'll spin and drop my trunks!"

CHORUS

I was watching Riverdance the lights they had a fault
Threatening to bring the night's proceeding to halt
"We have no spot to single out Jean Butler's next step-dance"
But I leapt to the rescue, bent down and dropped my pants.

It was at the Castleblaney fleadh, my mate lost his dope
To try to find it in the dark he knew there was no hope
But when I dropped my knickers, bathing all in a sea of light
He found his stash, ten pounds in cash and roared out in delight

CHORUS Adnauseam

I keep thinking I want to have a try at this - then I read the entries - and realize I ain't gonna compete against these entries. (I know - it's not a "competition")

Just bums sitting on the copier
While we drink some Christmas grog
It's Yule-tide; Carol's being chaste by the fire
And on the sofa, someone's NOT!

Everybody knows the turkey from the payroll staff
Will pass out, whoops there he goes!
Prop him up, hang some lights on his nose
and take some candid photo-graphs!

we know the boss is on his way
Enjoy the party or you will not get your pay
And every silly joke, he bleedin' tells is sure to make some jackass bray!

And so I'm offering this simple plea
for applicants to Virgin Mo...
If you wannna work where this stuff's goin' on
You're Crazy!
Yes, You''re crazy!

To the tune of Once in Royal Davids city

- Well it's a start anyway

Once in Richard Bransons party
stood a copying machine
'till a spice girl blaced her bottom
very gently on the screen.

When She leaned and pushed the button
a pleasant warmth rose from the glass
as green light traversed her bottom
copying her lovely little *ss!

The Christmas Thong
Words:  Jeanene Pratt © 2001
Tune:  The Christmas Song            Mel Tormé & Robert Wells, 1946

Chester's perching on the copier;
Jackson's ripping off his clothes;
You'll find Carol being done by a buyer,*
And folks act up like pesky shmoes.

Ev'rybody knows that turkey with his mistletoe
Guarantees a raunchy time;
Fanny Scott (hers  already exposed)
Is in the fax-your-fanny line.

 We know there's gonna be horseplay,
 We're loaded girls and boys with booty to display.
 But Virgin's legal team is gonna spy
 For fear that some dear cuts her butt here and cries.

And so they're offering this silly rule:
"You kids, no copies in the nude.
You know it's been said many years, many days,
'Merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas--
You're sued!'"

*Alternative lines (if the setting is altered a bit):
    Jewel's tied Carroll to a hunk from the choir
    You'll find Carol being done by the choir.
    Jewel's tied Carroll to a bunk by the fire.
**Alternative line:
    And Boy George dressed up like a 'ho.'

  (Refrain) Oh, chidings of "Bum sport!" annoy, "Bum sport!"  annoy!
    Oh, chidings of "Bum sport!" annoy!

From Sid, our legal counsel, a blasted memo came
And unto certain staffers brought chidings for their game
Of "Sit Upon The Copier And Bare Your Bod," by name.

So kindly put your clothes back on before you now embrace,
The only cheeks you may xerox are those upon your face!

HE CAME UPON THE XEROX CLEAR
W:  Sonja W. Oates   © 2001
M:  It Came Upon the Midnight Clear (Richard Stores. Willis, 1851)

He came upon the Xerox clear, that curious old CEO.
From angles pressing where he perched to touch his parts--Oh Ho!!!!.
"Piss on the mirth, good Mobile men!
Good Heavens, and gracious!  This stinks!"
The lawyers in solemn stiffness say they'll bear no more such things!

Still thru the closet doors they come with private things unveiled;
And still these reveling jokers plop on said machine their tails.
Above its sagging and creaking glass they're bent on uncovering their cans,
And ever o'er the net they send their blasted bare-bottom scans.

For lo, Boss Branson is chast'ning us our profits to uphold,
And with our internet circling rears may come a ton of gold.
But the lawyers over all the mirth their dampened blankets fling,
And the whole staff give them the bird and listen to Liberty sing.

"The scanner 'neath its crushing load, those forms all bending it low,
May geld you if it should explode -- how painful that is, we know!
Look out, for greedy & golden hordes lurk slyly in the wings.
To arrest you," the lawyers do forebode, "and sue you for everything!"

Jolie All Saints' Melanie

If you'll Xerox your derrière, I will fax you mine!

When the mood strikes everyone (chemically enhanced),
On the copier strong and clear we'll all drop our pants.
When all the shocking private parts are pictured in a row.
Sir Dick's will be the shortest one. (Don't ask me how I know.)

Johnny is a hairy ape;  Susie's cheeks are red;
Jenny wants her picture took with her wings wide-spread.
As for me, that "morals clause," is sticking in my craw.
(Booze for me---perhaps applause?---might make me test that law.)

Lawyer grinches, sticks up ass, mean to bar our way.
"Why don't you stick to good, old-fashioned mistletoe?" they say.
The Christmas cleavage canceled now, quoth our VP, Stan:
"Come kiss me 'neath this mistletoe I hold above my can."

Clifton To paraphrase a movie, ya had me a "Cheeks are too wide" I was smiling for a couple of minutes on that one line.

Especially since someone had done it to me in challenge 76 or 76, (don't recall which and it pays not to dwell) All I can say is I read and enjoyed your first entry without recognizing the song and apparantly it pays to mention which song is being parodied.

Jack, as Áine has reminded me, people often choose the same song to parody, usually quite unknowingly. Some songs, such as Little Drummer Boy, in this instance, are ripe for parodying. (Note that two of us have already used "The Christmas Song.") I just thought that your use of "Pa rump a Bum Bum" was cleverer, with more double entendre, than my "Bum bum bum bum bum." No cause for you to be embarrassed--I was praising your work.

FROM:   Myrth Cutter, Chief Legal Counsel for Virgin Mobile
               cc: The Royal Society For The Protection Of Accidents
DATE:     Dec. 15, 2001
RE:          Permissible Merriment at the annual Christmas party

 
"Mobile staff will please refrain
from placing objects on the pane
of glass upon our copying machine,
Such as large, unclad posteriors.
--Holidays are so much cheerier
If we don't incur a trauma scene.

"Tiny sprigs of good, old-fashioned
Mistletoe are corporate sanctioned,
Given that they not be overused.
(Uninvited osculation
Could give rise to litigation
On the grounds of sexual abuse.)

"We encourage moderation
When the staff take their libation
At the festive gathering this year,
Lest the circumstance arise
That some employee's heavy private
Parts are cut or burned beyond repair.

"Though the glass is reinforced,
A heavy corpus could, of course,
Suffice to cause a surface rupturing,
Resulting in a painful lesion
Leaving permanent adhesions.
--Now have fun, you kids, and lets all sing!"

I haven't had time, or for some reason haven't seemed able to finish a proper entry but here are my fragmented beginnings. My own creative well is a little dry for some reason so I'd invite anyone so moved to add verses.

#1: Tune = I Didn't raise my boy to be a soldier (Lyrics by the office prude, Miss Grundy)

I didn't take this job to be a stripper

I didn't take this job to be a stripper
I took this job to earn my daily bread
Who dares to ask me to pull down my zipper
And bare my derriere without a thread?
Let workers moderate their drinking habits
It's time to put the booze and punch away!
There'd be no lawsuits, sir,
If workers would aver
I didn't take this job to be a stripper!


Scrap #2, tune = BRENNAN ON THE MOOR

It's of a poor accountant, a story I will tell
His name was Mr. Brennan and in Trowbridge he did dwell
It was at an office party that he lost his young career
Showing off his assets to many a laughing leer

It was Brennan on the glass
Brennan on the glass

Sonja


P.S., If anyone wants to add more "name choruses," be my guest.


Fifty Ways To Scan Your Booty
(or Fifty Ways To Scan Uncovered)

Some words ripped off and others thoroughly distorted from Paul Simon, by Sonja W. Oates. (Sorry, Paul)

"The bottom line is how you make your ad", said Melanie,
"The answer is easy if you take your cue from me.
I'd like to help you in your marketing, you see--
There must be fifty ways to scan uncovered.

"Just slip off your shorts, Schwarts; make a new scan, McCann;
Lower your drawers, Doris, set your soul free!
Get up there and squat, Scott; there's no need to blush, Rush!
Just strip to the knee, Lee (and try not to pee)!"

She said "It's us'lly not my habit to pose nude;
But done for dear old Virgin's sake, it's really not so crude.
So I repeat myself-- this is no place for prudes!
There must be fifty ways to scan your booty, fifty ways to scan your booty.

"Just hop on the screen, Jean (Try not to pass gas, lass);
Show us you're a boy, Roy, just follow my lead;
Just copy your crack, Jack,--No, ye dinna look fat, Pat--
Just straddle the glass, Cass (and fax one to me!)."

Said Melanie "It thrills me that you've little fear or shame--.
It's the least that we can do to up Sir Richard's market gain."
Said Richard, "It might work, but won't you demonstrate again
the fifty ways to scan uncovered?"
She said, "Why don't we--all of us--just sit on it tonight?"
I believe that with a few more rounds, we'll all be less up tight."
And then she showed us how, and I saw that she was right--
There must be fifty ways to scan uncovered, fifty ways to scan uncovered.

"Just flash us your jewels, O'Toole; Xerox your box, Ms. Rox;
Uncover your cheeks, Geeks (and try not to squirm).
Hop on the pane, Jane; Give us a show, Joe;
Give us a thrill, Will (It's all for the firm).

"Just share what you got, Scott; how far can you spread, Ned?;
Don't be a prude, Jude (nobody will see [wink, wink])
Just show us your tricks, Dick; It's like riding a bike, Mike;
Don't break the machine, Christine! (Leave some toner for me!)

(Repeat choruses ad nauseum.)


P.S., Deda, I like your "starts!" I have a few titles and hook lines that I've been toying with, too, but probably won't spend any more time on, so here are some songs ripe for this parody:
"Wreck Your Balls Upon the Copier"
"Let it show!" Let It Show! Let It Show!"
"I'm Sittin' On Top Of the 'Rox,"
"Sittin' On The Copy Machine (Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay)"

For the first attempt in over a year: (to the tune of the Wicked Witch of the West's theme)

No more Xeroxed bottoms! No more Xeroxed bottoms! *cackle cackle*

Genie, since you asked for more, This one is based upon....

BONEY FINGERS
Recorded by Hoyt Axton
Words and music by Renee Armand and Hoyt Axton

See the bottom come down and the glass won't hold 'er
At my job and I feel a little bolder
Copier's running and the glass ain't getting colder
But maybe I'll be hung over in the mornin', in the mornin'
Maybe I'll need to drink a little bitters

Oh the fuser needs replacing and there's no toner
So Joe can't make a copy of his boner
No wonder that he is such a loner
Maybe he'll wake with Sally, in the morning
Maybe things'll get a little better.

Check out the output trays -Whadda ya get?
( Whoo-whoo ) Boney Asses - Boney Asses.

Yea! I've had a pretty ass as long as I remember
It's firm but then the skin is soft and tender
I'm taking copies that I'm gonna send her
Sayin' maybe she'll touch my bootie, in the mornin'
Maybe things'll get a little better.

Its great to colate -Whadda ya get?
( Whoo-whoo ) Boney Asses - Boney Asses.

I don't like the exposure the copy lamp's too hot
The whole darn world is goin' to pot
We'd would expose our buttocks, the lawyers say we're not
But, maybe they will let us, in the mornin'
Maybe things'll get a little better.

Whe you try to cover liability -Whadda ya get?
( Whoo-whoo ) Boney Asses - Boney Asses.

Following up on Sonja's introit of "Wreck Your Balls Upon the Copier,"  here's a modest submission (about an immodest practice).

Arjay

Rack Your Balls
words:  Arjay

Rack your balls upon the copier;  Fa la la la la La la la la
Scan to hard drive (not to floppier).  Fa la la la la La la la la
Doff we now our butts' apparel.  Fa la la la la La la la la
While some angel taps that barrel.  Fa la la la la La la la la

See the flashing jewels before us.  Fa la la la la La la la la
Strike a pose like London whor-es.  Fa la la la la La la la la
Follow all, with wild abandon!  Fa la la la la La la la la
Hey, Sir Dick's still got his pants on!  Fa la la la la La la la la

Fast away th'enjoyment passeth.  Fa la la la la La la la la
"Halt!"  Doth cry our legal 'staffeth.' " Fa la la la la La la la la
Singe your toys or balls so nu-ude:  "Fa la la la la La la la la
Virgin's ripe for being su-ed*:  "Fa la la la la La la la la

(* or "screw-ed")

Jack, good job with your "Boney Asses!" Hoyt Axton, I'm sure, is rolling over in his grave laughing!

Genie

Amos, thanks for checking on our dear Áine for us. (We should all have such troubles!)

Looking forward to your return, O Great Challenge! Generator, slinger of Cow Chips and B.L.O.B.s, and Supreme Judge!

Genie

P.S., By my count, this thread is far from beating the record (111 posts, I think) for a Song Challenge! You other Mudcatters, Áine's holiday break give you time to submit more doggere..., er, poetry.
