    Hey everyone --

    When Tony comes back from Christmas vacation, I suggest we all bug him to immortalize our "brilliant" song parodies as well as our puns! And to give him an added (negative) incentive, here's a new one:

    SEEKIN' LA SQUIDA LOCA
    by Inky Martin


    He's into Architeuthis
    Long arms and giant beaks
    That's why I'm telling you this,
    my fellow TONMO geeks:

    In every great museum
    they know Doc Steve O'Shea
    The minute that you see 'im
    He'll take your mind away

    He'll make you wear a wetsuit
    and put on some scuba gear
    He'll lure you on his trawling boat
    With some cheap Australian beer,
    While he whispers in your ear....

    Let's sort through benthic junk,
    Seekin' La Squida Loca!
    It's easy when you're drunk,
    Seekin' La Squida Loca!
    That ceph's so hard to find
    our funding is going broke-a!
    It can blow your mind
    Seekin' La Squida Loca!

    Back here on Tangaroa
    picking through a ton of krill
    We're on a Nature Show-a,
    I need a seasick pill....

    He'll fill you up with Foster's
    while he drinks his Chardonnay,
    At last you find a larva
    but then it croaks in half a day --
    Better luck next time, O'Shea!

    So launch another trawl,
    Seekin' La Squida Loca!
    It might be in this haul,
    Seekin' La Squida Loca!
    Just keep alive one Dux
    and we will not go broke-a!
    We could make mega-bucks
    Seekin' La Squida Loca!

    I aint neva written a song
    A song no one could hum along
    So here it comes…
    ….my very first song
    …….and I be calling it
    Tani Tani Tani

    ……….drum roll

    Tani was a problem child
    Wiff features wot drove ‘em wild
    Wiff fear that is

    So bad
    Was our
    Tani Tani Tani

    [kinda chorus] Don’t eat me, don’t beat me, don’t lure me in
    Not me, not my flesh
    I’m not your next din
    You’re bad, you’re evil and I’ll not give in
    Oh Tani Tani Tani


    On dark nights she lured ‘em in
    Wiff ‘er bulbs to ‘er alluring grin
    …where she did ‘em in
    …it was a sin
    ..and wiff no respite she terrorised
    And in the ink abyss talonised
    Poor hapless sqwid wot got no wits
    Wiff ‘er wicked hooks she ripped to bits
    She’s not just bad, she’s downright evil
    Who’s that – why

    Tani Tani Tani

    [chorus; ok, this is a work in prep.] Don’t eat me, don’t beat me, don’t lure me in
    Save a soul for its next of kin
    I don’t wanna be your very next din
    Oh Tani Tani Tani


    Well wiff life force gone and no reprieve
    Reduced to pellets, who would believe
    She ate ‘em
    ....and so ends this song
    …and we’ll all sing along….

    [and the last one] Don’t eat me, don’t beat me, don’t lure me in
    Please save thy soul for my next of kin
    I don’t wanna be your [censored] next din
    Oh Tani Tani Tani

    So bad is our
    Tani Tani Tani

    Here's another heap of musical manure for you. To the tune of Sheb Wolly's 'Flying Purple People Eater', as if hadn't guessed!)



    Well I saw the thing coming out of the sea
    It had ten long arms was looking at me
    I commenced to shakin' and I said “Jeez!”
    It looks like a purple people eater to me
    It was a ten armed photophored swimming purple people eater (x3)
    Sure looks good to me

    Well, it came to the boat and I started to pee,
    I said Mr Purple People Eater don't eat me
    I heard him say in a voice so thick
    I wouldn’t eat you ‘cos you’re a [ahem, censored by tonmo]
    It was a ten armed photophored swimming purple people eater (x3)
    It sure looks strange to me

    I said Mr Purple People Eater what's your line,
    He said avoiding scientists and it sure is fine
    But that's not the reason that I came to land
    I wanna get a job in a rock 'n roll band
    Well, bless my soul rock 'n roll swimming purple people eater
    Parrot beaked tentacled swimming' purple people eater
    Ten armed, photophored, it was a people eater
    What a sight to see

    Well, he mounted the boat and I nearly drowned
    He started to rock really rockin' around
    It was a crazy sea shanty with a swinging tune
    Wop bop a lula wop bam boom
    Ten-armed, photophored swimming people eater (x3)
    Ooh, it sure looks strange to me

    Well he went on his way and then what do you know
    I saw him last night on Steve’s TV show
    He was inking it out and really knockin' them dead
    Playing Neil Diamond through the beak in his head

    Another monsterpiece from Phunky Phil! I thought I was the only Old Fart on this board who remembered that song. Now we gotta get one for Ross Bagdasarian's "Witch Doctor" -- how about "O'Shea the Squid Doctor"?

    (BTW, you realize the last verse of your song has automatically placed you on You-Know-Who's hit list. Welcome to the club -- heehee!)

    :D

    Yo Tani.

    Just got back from the pub. How about 'Monster Mash'?


    " Steve was working in the lab late one night,
    When his eyes beheld an eerie sight,
    From his monster from the slab began to arise,
    When suddenly to my surprise..............."

    Go for it!

    Merrrrrrry Christmas!

    CHORUS:
    It was a Squid (it was a Giant Squid!)
    A Giant Squid (and guess what Steve-O' did?)
    It was a Squid (he nearly flipped his lid!)
    A Giant Squid (direct from Steve-O's id!)

    From the Tangaroa where he found the beast
    To the deep sea where Vampyroteuthis feast
    The octos came after their evening meal
    To get a jolt from his Electric Eel

    CHORUS, etc.

    The cephs had a blast, you bet, the party was wild and wet,
    The solo was played by Squidward on his crummy clarinet!

    The scene was rocking, all were digging the sound
    The Mimic Octo hiding under the ground
    Pretending to be a venomous sea-snake
    So he'd get the first crack at the crabmeat cake!

    CHORUS, etc.

    Out from R'lyeh Cthulhu's call did ring
    Seems he was troubled by just one thing
    He shook his tentacles from the abyss,
    and said, "Whatever happened to my Innsmouth Twist?"

    CHORUS, etc.

    Now everything's cool, Cthulhu's part of the band
    Architeuthis Rock is the hit of the land
    For you, the bipeds, this song was meant too
    When you get to my door, tell 'em Steve-O' sent you!

    CHORUS, ad nauseam....

    On second thought, maybe I should've joined you at that pub! :cheers:

    Feliz Navidad, Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas, Belated Happy Chanukah, Yule Blessings, Harambee for Kwanzaa, and a prosperous 2003 to all!

    Tani

    Brilliant! I'm singing along.

    I hope Alan Rickman himself delivers your presents personally this festive morning. You deserve it.

    Happy Easter.

    LOL

    Looks like I missed out on this one - serves me right for going to Florida for Christmas. Which is also my guess as to why Ryan Stiles-Claus did not deliver MY presents - forgot to tell him where I was going. Oh well - next time. ;)

    Happy New Year! May it bring squiddy tidings to all. :squid:
