Alice Cascorbi Naughty kids' greatest hits (110* d) RE: Naughty kids'greatest hits 15 Sep 97


Ok, just a few more! I have a soft spot for these kid parodies. Some must be pretty old --

(Another Popeye verse):
I'm Popeye the sailor man,
I live in the frying pan,
I turn on the gas and burn off my ass,
I'm Popeye the sailor man.

________
God bless my underwear
my only pair
stand beside it, and guide it
through the holes and the rips and the tears.
From the washer, to the dryer, to the clothesline, wild and free,
God bless my underwear, my only pair.

Others are pop-culture commentaries:

McDonald's is your kind of place
They serve you rattlesnakes
Put french fries up your nose
and hamburgers between your toes
Last time that I was there
We had to eat my underwear
McDonald's is your family place to go!

And then there are parodies of real folksongs, like the Good Ship Titanic. Most of the verses are the same as the "real" song, but there are embellishments:

Fishies and turtles, little ladies lost their girdles, it was sad when the great ship went down.
Oh it was sad (it was sad), it was sad (TOO bad!), it was sad when the great ship went down--
Uncles and aunts, little boys lost their pants, it was sad when the great ship went down.

Or this version of "Barges", which we sang all too often at Girl Scout camp:

Out of my tent flaps, looking in the night,
I can see the councelors having a fight.
Suddenly flows the water from the john,
as the councelors' fight goes on and on.
Councellors, I would like to fight with you,
I would like to beat you black and blue.
Councellors, have you treasure in your hold,
Do you fight with raccoons brave and bold?
