What Happened to All Our Song Parodies?

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

Into the :twisted: :squid: Jacuzzi with thee, knave! :jester:
And no more :wine: or :beer: for ye till New Year's Eve!

I've got my :cyclops: on you....

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!

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:
