There doesnt seem to be a thread for this , though there are odd bits
scattered through other threads. What triggered this was one in the El Paso Thread:-

One night in the Wild West Town of El Paso
I met a girl and I got shot and died.

I once 'did' ten songs in a ten minute floorspot. Songs like :-

The Gallant Frigate Amphritite Sank.

Its one or two liners I am looking for , rather than two or three
Verse stuff , and am interested in seeing what others Catters might
know ,or have 'Written'

As I walked out one evening clear, along the mossy banks.
I stepped upon a mans bare bum, and a ladys voice said "Thanks"

The song of the Vaasa
We set sail on one fine day,
And we sank to the bottom of the sea.

This is the story of the old 49
Fastest locomotive on the Santa Fe line
She left on time at a hell of a dash
She got there safe, and she did not crash.

My grandfathers clock was too big for the shelf
So we sold it.

And it's sure is sweet

A version of Laredo by, I believe, the Smothers Brothers:


As I walked out in the streets of Laredo,
As I walked out in Laredo one day.
I spied a young cowboy dressed in white linen.
Dressed in white linen and cold as the clay.

I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy,
You see by my outfit I am a cowboy, too,
We see by our outfits that we are both cowboys,
And if you get an outfit you can be a cowboy too!

Bring us a tea pot to last out the night
Bring us a tea pot, no matter how hot
We'll drink it all up, boys, we'll drink the lot.

Come all you bold heroes, give an ear to my song
I'll sing in the praise of hot tea and a bun

Jeff Rantzer did a cute short parody of "Moonshadow" which went "I'm being followed by a state trooper, state trooper state trooper"

A lot of Streets of Lardeo parodies.   I wrote this one about the donut competition in Canada between Tim Horton and Robins Donuts.   In London Ontario just south of Victoria Park there was a Robins Donuts on Horton street. I thought- why would they do that so I wrote the parody.   Sing Out promised to publish it but never did.   I noticed recently that the Robins Donuts is out of Business on Horton street, but that a new Tim Hortons has been build.

As I walked out the streets of London
As I walked out on London one day
I spied a Tim Hortons and the Street it said Robin
The street it said Robin as clear as the day

Now I like Tim Hortons if that is important
But give me the Robin's for their donuts are the best
Take me to a near Robin's and don't just start sobbin
Its over on Horton Street just to your west

I see from your laughter you think its quite funny
These words I did say as I ckearkt walked by
Tim Hortons on Robins and Robins on Horton
I was dazed and confused and I donut know why

The dairy queen's sweet, it's over on King Street
I just stop why when I am downtown
And over on Queen street a Burger King outlet
Where night clubs and pawn shots and drag queens abound

Go write a letter to the London coucil
And try to explain any logic in this
Route 401 due east I am heading
For a town south of Guelph by the name of Paris

From an Alan Sherman album...
Shticks Of One Kind And Half A Dozen Of The Other
[parody of "Molly Malone"]
She wheels her wheelbarrow
Through streets that are narrow,
Her barrow is narrow, her hips are too wide.
So wherever she wheels it,
The neighborhood feels it,
Her girdle keeps scraping the homes on each side.
In Dublin's fair city,
Where girls are so pretty,
My Molly stands out 'cause she weighs 18 stone.
(That's 256 pounds.)
I don't mind her fat--but,
It's not only that--but,
She's cockeyed and muscle-bound, Molly Malone.

[parody of "Auld Lang Syne"]
I know a man, his name is Lang,
And he has a neon sign.
And Mister Lang is very old,
So they call it Old Lang's Sign.

[parody of "Billy Boy"]
Oh what have you done, Billy Sol, Billy Sol.
Oh what have you done, charming Billy.
You took almost every cent
From the U.S. Government,
Which you spent on fertilizer, which is silly.

[parody of "Mary-Anne"]
All day, all night, Cary Grant.
That's all I hear from my wife, is Cary Grant.
What can he do that I can't?
Big deal, big star, Cary Grant.


[parody of "On The Banks Of The Wabash" by George J. Gaskin]
Oh the moon is bright tonight upon the car wash.
So I'm having my Volkswagen washed again.
But the way things go with me, the way my luck is,
Just as soon as they're finished, it will rain.

[parody of "On Top Of Old Smokey" by The Weavers]
On top of Old Smokey,
All covered with hair,
Of course I'm referring
To Smokey The Bear.

[parody of "Aura Lee"]
Every time you take vaccine,
Take it orally.
As you know the other way
Is more painfully.
[parody of "Grandfather's Clock" by The Haydn Quartet]
My grandfather's clock was the best ever made
By the Timex company.
Just like the clock John Cameron Swayze displayed
Last night on the old TV.
Oh it works under water so perfectly,
And still makes a ticking sound.
Which my grandfather tried only this afternoon,
And that's how the old man drowned.

[parody of "Comin' Thru' The Rye" by Nellie Melba]
Do not make a stingy sandwich.
Pile the cold cuts high.
Customers should see salami
Coming through the rye.




[parody of Stephen Foster's "Polly Wolly Doodle"]
Oh I diet all day and I diet all night,
It's enough to drive me bats.
Got no gravy or potatoes,
'Cause the whole refrigerator's
Fulla polyunsaturated fats.
Fare thee well, Metrecal,
And the others of that ilk.
Let the diet start tomorrow,
'Cause today I'll drown my sorrow
In a double malted milk.

[parody of "Down By The Riverside"]
When you go to the delicatessen store,
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
I repeat what I just said before,
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Oh buy the corned beef if you must,
The pickled herring you can trust,
And the lox puts you in orbit AOK.
But that big hunk of liverwurst
Has been there since October First,
And today is the Twenty-Third of May.
So when you go to the delicatessen store,
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
It'll make your insides awful sore.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
Don't buy the liverwurst.
