So happy I found this thread! Read through all 10 years of it! The idea to look up Mad parodies popped in my head after watching Hello Dolly on TV, and remembered bits of Hello Deli. Lo and behold, I found it here.

Does anyone remember one about geetting high or drunk that was sung to Skip To My Lou?

It went something like,

Sniff, sniff, go sniff some glue
You'll take off like a DC2...

There was something about Schlitz brew at the end too.

Over booze, over beer (can't remember)
As the barflies go yapping along

Football facts, baseball lore
We remember every score
As the barflies go yapping along

For it's "Hie hie hee!" when some rummies disagree
Shout out your answer loud and strong ("Says you!")

For we will prove our point, while we're busting up the joint

Make my grave in the Trump Hotel,
Not a lowly plain, or a lofty hill;
Put it at the end of the escaltor,
On the doorstep of the great imitator .

Engrave Trump lies around my grave.
Like Arlington make sure that I stay
His shadow above my silent tomb
Would make it a place of fear & gloom.

I could rest in the noise of Fifth Avenue
On my birthday you can have free barbecue.
Try to manage a shriek of wild despair
Like a million curses in NYC air.

I could not sleep if Trump went free
His dieing in prison is reason for glee
Such a cruel narcissist unfeeling beast
should be punished for his hateful beliefs.

Let my grave in the Trump Hotel help remind
how the US was fired, attacked by virus and died
One day Trump hotels will be demolished.
Maybe men like Trump will be abolished

I ask no monument, proud and high,
To arrest the gaze of the passers-by;
All that my yearning spirit craves,
Is bury me not in a land depraved.

Some Mad "nursery rhymes" that have stuck with me all these years:

When Onassis goes broke,
and the H-bomb's a joke,
and bookies no longer take bets,
when bacon is kosher,
then Leo Durocher
will win seven straight from the Mets!
*
Twinkle, twinkle, man with star,
officer, don't tag my car!
Though it's double-parked and waits,
can't you see my M.D. plates?!
*
If wishes were horses, we'd all ride for free.
If Huntley were Cronkite, we'd watch NBC!

(to the tune of "The Caissons go marching along")
In a test
for a class
that we know
that we can't pass
see the goof-offs go faking along!

Start to heave,
fake a chill,
anything so's you'll look ill,
as the goof-offs go faking along!

For it's hi hi hoo,
we'll all fake the Asian flu!
Call out your symptoms loud and strong (blah! ecch!)
We will feel enthused
when the teacher says excused
as the goof-offs go faking along!

Ya gotta be ancient to appreciate these :)

These might be repeats, i didnt have time to read all of these comments, just found this page but had to contribute. THanks for sharing all of these! I loved these.

sung to: Off We Go Into The Wild Blue Yonder

Off we go into the lunch room yonder
pushing girls out of our way
Forward boys start moving down the counter
Grab your grub, fill up your tray.
Try the beans, they were prepared last Friday
and the meat's tough as a mule
The soup is cold,
The breads got mold, YECH!
anything beats our lunchroom at school.

Oh how I loved these parodies. I'm 63 and still have them in my head.

Cant remember the actual tune of this one.
Cheat em all
cheat em all
in the springtime
the winter
and fall.
those Lincoln quotations
we hide in our fist
that Longfellow verse
written on our left wrist.
If you find,
that your mind cant recall,
the date when the Romans took Gaul,
a glance at your kneecap will help you recap
so why take a chance
Cheat em all!

In the fifties cars had fins and lots of chrome. MAD parodied that to the Marine Corps Hymn.

From the gaudy grills of Cadillac to the fins of Chevrolet,
We will push GM's new models and make obsolescence pay.
So to heck with Ford and Chrysler, boys,
And to sports cars from afar,
We won't stop 'til every family owns a brand new GM car!

You can talk of blood'n gore when you're in a shooting war
And the enemy is charging for the hill -
But if you're liking slaughter,
Then you ought a haul some water,
Like that brave and fearless couple, Jack and Jill.

Well they had a pail to fill
When they climbed that craggy hill
And they never thought that soon they would be dead;
But Jack he too a fall and bounced just like a ball
Til he landed in a a gully on his head.

He hollered, "Jill, Jill, Jill!
I'm a lying at the bottom of the hill"
But poor Jill had plunged as well and they died right where they fell.
You've a lot more guts than I have, Jack and Jill.

I read MAD from the late 50's to the mid 70's. I considered 'East Side Story' the best parody they ever did. Great lyrics and a good finish. The artwork had lots of little things in it. Songs included, 'Nikita, I just met a Red named Nikita'; 'Dear Commissar Khrushchev'.
Check out this line from their version of 'America':
"Life is a whiz in America,
Eddie met Liz in America,
Thought she was his in America,
Well, that's show biz in America.
You'll like the weather in Moscow,
If you like driving a snow plow."

When I was about 10, my friend and I would sing Mad Magazine parodies for my dad. He would laugh until his stomach hurt, his face was red, and he had to take off his glasses and wipe his eyes between bellows of laughter. I remember several, my favorite being this one. Here's most of it, sung to the tune of "Love is Blue:

News, News, It's time for News
Cronkite is here, so what can you lose?
News, News, World leaders' views
Brezhnev, and Mao, and George Pompidou

(Line I can't remember--can anyone help?
(Line I can't remember--can anyone help?
News, News, Domestic News,
News of the Mob, that you can't refuse

When we're through
And the world's picked clean,
Sevareid will explain what you've seen!

Bought the Mad Magazine Anniversary book and was disappointed to see that the song lyrics didn't make it. They probably had no idea how many people loved them and still remember them. In my case, it's been around 45 years, and I'm missing two lines.
Funny what sticks with you. I can't remember where I've put my phone or car keys, but I remember the whole skit we laid out for my dad.

No song but when I was in high school I got to visit the Soviet Union. For my onflight reading I took a copy of MAD magazine where they were skewering the movie version of "Catch-22". The magazine cover was a big headed Alfred E. Neuman in WWII flight gear smiling his inimitable grin. Got some interesting double takes going through Soviet Customs!

In the years this thread has been running, there has been mention of some of the regular guest contributors, especially from the '50's but who can forget Tom Lehrer, whose every printed utterance was a glorious epic parody of entire generae without having to say "I'm writing something to the melody of X." Consider "The Wild West is where I want to be" and many others. I am glad he is still with us but regret his retirement.

I'm searching Alfred E., for a classic from around(1960) the time between throwing lemons at cars and finally getting it wet. A dentist song to the tune of the Air Force song.
Off we go,Into the wild mouth yonder, looking for molars to fill. There's a tooth ready to feel out thunder, at em boy's, give em the dril..???/@#$%^&*()@@##DFDI'..................I've lost the middle part and that section of my brain, but
IF YOU REMEBER THE LAST STANZA OF THE AIR FORCE song, I guess it's a song
WHEN WE'RE IN DOUBT
WE PULL THEM OUT
OH' N0THING CAN STOP THE DENTISTS TODAY

I think the last few lines for "watchdog in the the night" go something like this:
    Whenever I'm in sight-
    it's so upsetting
    Every time you bite-
    it's me you're getting
    ooooh! ooooh! ooooh!
    my watchdog in the nighttt

Casey at the Dice by Frank Jacobs

The table wasn't breaking for the Vegas crowd that night,
The house was up 12 thousand, with no change of luck in sight;
So, when Epstein came up snake-eyes and Spinelli missed his point,
A mood of deep depression could be felt throughout the joint.

The dollar-bettors, cleaned of cash, were heading for the door,
But all the big high-rollers stayed to even up the score;
They said: "If only Casey had a chance to roll the dice,
We'd have a chance to change our luck, which now is cold as ice."

Then, suddenly, their eyes lit up, a cry rose from their lips,
It echoed off the slot machines, it rattled off the chips;
It rumbled through the Black Jack games as cards were being dealt,
For Casey, lucky Casey, was advancing to the felt!

His nails were cleanly manicured, his face was richly tanned,
His suit was iridescent silk that cost him half a grand;
The cuff-links on his sheer batiste were rubies from afar,
Between his teeth he cooly smoked a ninety-cent cigar!

There was ease in Casey's manner as he calmly placed his bet,
His hands were steady as a rock, his palms were free of sweat;
The other shooters, now revived, together had one goal,
To place each C-note they had left on Casey and his roll!

With confidence and quiet pride he gripped the cubes of white,
Then, blowing on them softly, he prepared them for their flight;
"A seven, dice," he murmured, as he looked up to the sky,
And a hush went 'round the table as he raised his arm on high!

The cool is drained from Casey's face, his eyes are tense and keen
And all along his sun-drenched brow deep furrows can be seen;
And now he firmly hold the dice, and now he lets them go,
And now the air is shattered by the force of Casey's throw!

Oh, somewhere in this wealthy land there is a happy spot,
Where naturals are being rolled, and dice are running hot;
And somewhere men are doubling up and winners scream and shout,
But there is no joy in Vegas -- Lucky Casey has crapped out!

Some filler for GUEST,jesfine

From "College Fight songs we'd like to hear"
To the tune "Anchors Away":

On to the fray, my boys
On to the fray!
Kill those who block our path and
grind their bones to Clay!(clay, clay. clay)

We're mighty Pivnick men
stalwart and strong!
We'll beat the visitors
as soon as we conclude this modest song!

I was at an amateur folk event a couple of weeks ago. One act played Dylan's Blowing in the Wind. Afterwards, I looked online to see if anyone posted the version 'The Sponsors will sell you all they can'. Lines like
How many times must you gargle each day
Before you talk to a friend
The sponsors my friend, will sell you all they can
The sponsors will sell you all they can
