Thread Name: What song just drives you crazy?
Subject: RE: What song just drives you crazy?
Speaking of Teen Angel, a fellow named Dallas Williams who sang in Seattle's coffeehouses back in the Sixties wrote a parody called Teen Leper.

In the spoken part, backed by a "Do-Waa" chorus,

". . . My parents said, 'but son, she has leprosy!'
So I told them, 'Well, gee whiz, all teen-agers have complexion problems. . . ."

(And when she went away to the leper colony, she gave him her thumb as a keepsake.)

I figure if any song gets up your nose, that's an invitation to work up a parody.
