To The Tune Of…

Before there was Weird Al Jankovic, there was a gentleman named Allan Sherman, a master of parody lyric writing. Herewith, my homage:

To the Everly Brothers’ “Bird Dog”-Hey,Bergdahl, you turned and ran tail/Hey, Bergdahl, your country you failed/Bergdahl, why’d you leave your buddies all alone?

To “O Holy Night”-Oh, holy crap, the blinking lights stopped blinking/How will we ever finish this tree?

To “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing”: Hark, the Herald-Tribune lands/In the bushes again, oh, damn!?If I ever catch that boy/I will make him holler Oy!

I could go on, but probably shouldn’t. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_writing_challenge/to-the-tune-of/
