Your Thong

The Garrens Comedy Troupe:

"Your Thong"

by Eric D. Snider (parody of "Your Song," by Elton John and Bernie Taupin)

Originally performed by The Garrens Comedy Troupe on December 31, 1969

I sat on the beach
And looked out at the sea,
And some of the people, well they,
They looked good to me.
Then I saw you standing there
And it made my smile fade.
It's for people like you that long pants were made.

So excuse me for staring,
But I can't look away --
Your horrible flabby cheeks,
Your thighs a shade of gray.
Well, the thing is,
Your body's really obscene.
Yours is the fattest butt I've ever seen.

And I can tell what the problem is:
It is your thong.
It's really too tiny and
It just looks wrong.
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind, that I put in this song
How horrible you look when you wear a thong
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind, that I gouged out my eyes --
I couldn't stand seeing after I saw your thighs.

Stumble It!

Notes:

I wrote this in the summer of 2002, as I recall, though I don't remember why. It's a parody of Elton John's "Your Song," the version sung by Ewan MacGregor on the "Moulin Rouge" soundtrack specifically. I was listening to it a lot, and I liked the idea of playing it on the piano and singing it to someone, so I wrote a parody, I think is how my reasoning went.
