Here's the original:

HEY THERE
(Richard Adler & Jerry Ross)

[1] Hey there, you with the stars in your eyes,
Love never made a fool of you.
You used to be too wise.

[2] Hey there, you on that high-flyin' cloud,
Though she won't throw a crumb to you,
You think some day she'll come to you.

[3] Better forget her, her with her nose in the air.
She has you dancin' on a string.
Break it and she won't care.

[4] Won't you take this advice I hand you like a brother,
Or are you not seein' things too clear?
Are you too much in love to hear?
Is it all goin' in one ear and out the other?

REPEAT [1] AND [4]

[From the Broadway musical "Pajama Game." Recorded by Rosemary Clooney, 1954.]

And now the parody:
Lyrics transcribed from the sound file at http://www.geocities.com/u2page5/

HEY THERE
(As sung by Homer & Jethro)

Hey there, you with the nose on your face!
You have the large economy size
Right there betwixt your eyes.

Hey there! You're like a switchboard, my sweet,
'Cause all your lines are busy
When you go walkin' down the street.

Where did they get her, her with her nose in the breeze?
Looks like she smells Limburger cheese.
Maybe it's her perfume.

And since you left me an' went home to your mother,
It's been so miserable without you, dear,
It's almost like havin' you here.
Let me see you flap one ear and then the other.

SPOKEN:
HOMER: Hey there!
JETHRO: Are you talkin' to me?
HOMER: Yeah. Where you goin'?
JETHRO: I thought I'd go a-fishin'.
HOMER: Goin' fishin'?
JETHRO: Yeah.
HOMER: You got worms?
JETHRO: Huh?
HOMER: Have you got worms?
JETHRO: Well, yeah, but I'm goin' anyway.

Though this gal's got a shape like Marilyn Monroe's brother,
You're under-worked and you're overfed.
Won't you please get out the lead?
Is it all goin' in one head and out the other?

[Recorded by Homer & Jethro on "The Worst of Homer and Jethro," 1957.]
