Subject: *** -- THE PIRATES WHO PENSTANZAS -- *** ( the completed 20-song Opera )

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 07/23/05 at 11:48 am

Welcome to The AmIright production of “The Pirates Who Penstanzas”

The whole opera is contained in the next 4 posts on this thread.

For optimum Gilbert and Sullivanism -
  1.  when you reach each song, click on its OS link, then click on the MIDI
   2. count down the intro-time to when the song  (usually an oboe/trumpet-sound)
       begins  (I’ve listed intro-time next to each OS name)

Huge thanks to all the contributors (listed below)

I’ll also try to post the whole opera as a parody on AmIRight, under “A Roomful Of Monkeys” - if there are no objections from prior Monkeys (and if King Chucky-G will accept it)

I chose the players’ roles according to 1: who had contributed or volunteered their name, then 2: whether the context allowed it, so please don’t be offended if you’re not mentioned – it was a seat-of-my-pants write

- Stu McArthur

   "The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring"

Parody by Scathe
     "The Jokesters That Roam AmIRight"


                    VILLAGERS
The jokesters that roam AmIRight,
Ha ha,
Bring promise of laughter that rhymes.
As we are laughing until we cry,
Ha ha,
We enjoy their spoofs ev'ry night,
Ha ha,
Of quirky celebrity times,
Of some blundering sublime.
This is what we see when we visit this site,
The whimsical jokesters that roam AmIRight.
Ha ha ha ha ha,
Ha ha ha ha ha,
The jokesters that roam AmIRight.
Ha ha ha ha ha,
Ha ha ha ha ha,
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

                 SCATHE (and backing parodists)
We're jokesters that roam AmIRight,
Ha ha,
There's nothing that we cannot spoof.
We all change the songs just right,
Ha ha,
The humor is heavy or light,
Ha ha,
There's no song is too sacred to spoof,
We want all your laughs to raise roofs;
And that's why we all rearrange when we right,
'Cause we are the jokesters that roam AmIRight.
Ha ha ha ha ha,
Ha ha ha ha ha,
'Cause we are the jokesters that roam AmIRight
Ha ha ha ha ha,
Ha ha ha ha ha,
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!





Dialogue 1




                    DEE RANGE
‘tis another glorious day in AmIRight, Stuey Poo

         
                    STUEY POO
You speak the truth my fellow lowly courtier. What say we see who’s enjoying the day…


                    DEE RANGE
Splendid. Although I’ve enjoyed citizenship of AmIRight for longer than you, you are quite the historian and can enlighten me as to the goings-on in the kingdom
         

 
                    STUEY POO
              (approaching Mayor Phil)
Then first I’d like you to meet the Mayor of AmIRight, Sir Phil.  Sir Phil, meet my companion Dee Range


                    MAYOR PHIL
Pleased to make your acquaintance, Dee.   I trust you will find AmIRight a convivial place.  It’s in the chemistry, you see.  When the carbon/hydrogen balance synchronises with the nitrogen levels, and the dihydrogen monoxide count is low…


                     STUEY POO
lost me, Phil…


                    MAYOR PHIL
Well it’s a bit like comparing the UNIX OS of the early eighties with WINDOWS XP…


                    STUEY POO
nuh...Dee?


                   DEE RANGE
             (shakes head)
nuh


                   MAYOR PHIL
(sigh) then let me just introduce you to our citizens. Over there, chair on a backwash, drinking humble in svelte risque, is Adagio.  And over there, regaling his fans with fabulous tales of faraway places, like DementoLand and Willtopowerville, is Guru Spaff.  And on yonder hill is Claude, curator of the AmIRight Museum, which houses the prestigious “Works Of SOTM" and historically-important curios like “The Bong Song” ...and see those two?  down that alley?

                   DEE RANGE
Down that alley?  Alas, there's nought there but shadows!


                   MAYOR PHIL
Yes, that’s Merry and Pippin – ‘though I’m not sure which is which…..and see that big crowd of people over there, all writing "Constipated" parodies to Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" - they're the newbies...


                    STUEY POO
and there, enjoying the adulation of the village, are the Top Ten Parodists, esteemed Village elders.


                    DEE RANGE
The Top Ten Parodists?  Tell me more, Stuey Poo…





                    AGRIMORFEE
Excuse me, kind sir, but did you just enquire as to the Top Ten Parodists?


                    DEE RANGE
I did indeed, although I meant no offense


                    AGRIMORFEE
Nay, truly, they are the lifeblood of the kingdom.  The TTP reign at the head of the AmIRight Author Index and are no less than the yardstick by which all of us are judged.

   ”They’ll None Of ‘Em Be Missed"
         
Parody by Agrimorfee:
   "The Top 10 Parodists"


                    AGRIMORFEE
On the Author Index as you may casually surf around
You'll find yourself a list of major parodists
The AmIRight songwriters, so prolific and profound
So now let's describe the gist--The Top 10 Parodists

There's the British Malcolm Higgins who writes it all for laughs
'Bout people who have flabby glands and other social gaffes
William Tong who hates the Red States and politics like that
'Specially for he who wrung his hands and led invasion of Iraq
And good Rick Duncan who's fun humor you cannot resist
(His wife Mari he kissed)--He's third guy on the list

They're prolific parodists, they're prolific parodists
So they made the Top 10 List, they made the Top 10 List

Now John Barry, so creative, puts a smile upon your face
He's written many hits--he's fourth here on this list
And the one named Mike Pacholek, he's from Joisey--in your face!
But he's not an egotist--he's cinco on the list
That guy, DeRito, praise him, he wrote 7 songs for "One"
Wrote "Techies Nerds and Geeks", and "Barbara Bush's Son"
And Tokusu Sentai Blessranger, a crazy kind of guy,
Who rarely matches song pace; I don't think he cares to try
Then the one named Johnny D - the cunning linguist!
That wacky satirist--he's eighth upon the list

They're prolific parodists, they're prolific parodists
So they made the Top 10 List, they made the Top 10 List

And Phil Alexander here now often writes of U.K. life
And of grammar and physics--number 9 on this here list
And Alvin Rhodes, comic man, South Park Al second life
No way he can be dissed, he's tenth guy on this list

All apologies--if you write less, you aren't quality deprived:
See Bob Pags-- Martha--Red Ant--and Agri-(never mind)
Mike Squirrel, and Spaff.com--and yes, Adagio...
The task of writing up this song is daunting, don't you know
Before I neglect to name folks who'll end up being ticked
Thank Chuck for all of this, thank Chuck for all of this

They're prolific parodists! they're prolific parodists!
So they made the Top 10 List, they made the Top 10 List!



Dialogue 2


                    DEE RANGE
Then who is that couple so busily absorbed, as the other TTPs sun themselves?


                    MAYOR PHIL
That, Dee, is TTP chairman Rick Duncan and his good wife Mari.  Even as we watch, they busy themselves with their writing, for theirs is the fuel that stokes AmIRight’s joy, and the chairman of the TTP has broad responsibilities.  Come, let’s listen.

   “I Have a Song To Sing, O"

Parody By Rick Duncan:
   "I Have a Song To Spoof, Oh"


                      RICK
I have a song to spoof, oh
                     MARI
Spoof that old song so…

                      RICK
I can mock this old tune and it's nigh near noon
Who wrote this old crappy song, oh?
It's the song of a better band, bend a bit
I'll make "em mad, by wrecking it
I'll twist the text and I'll hype that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

Par'dy, par'dy slappin' my knee, hack away me
I'll twist the text and I'll harm that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

                    MARI:
I have a song to spoof, oh
                    RICK:
Spoof that old song so…
                   
                    MARI:
It is stung with the sting of a wit in the wing
Who laughs with a laugh so strong, oh
It's the song of the poorly paid, lousy luck
Who takes a tune and then makes some muck
Of the song of a greater group, bend a bit
I'll make "em mad, by wrecking it
I'll twist the text and I'll hype that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

Par'dy, par'dy slappin' my knee, hack away me
I'll twist the text and I'll harm that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

                     RICK:
I have a song to spoof, oh
                     MARI:
Spoof that old song so…

                     RICK:
It's about life in Hell, or a rancid smell
Or about some boobs or dong, oh
It's a song of celebrity, pain or porn
A slam on society that's torn
And the song of the poorly paid, lousy luck
Who takes a tune and then makes some muck
Of the song of a greater group, bend a bit
I'll make "em mad, by wrecking it
I'll twist the text and I'll hype that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

Par'dy, par'dy slappin' my knee, hack away me
I'll twist the text and I'll harm that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

                    MARI:
I have a song to spoof, oh
                     RICK:
Spoof that old song so…

                     MARI:
It is writ with a wink and a really strong drink
And it scans like a pretty poem, oh
It's a song of celebrity, straight and gays
Or maybe a president's foolish ways
From the network nothingness poorly done
To trumped up movies that thrill no one
There's a fumbled fart that can win a prize
Or a song about fleas or a gal's cross eyes
It's the song of a better band, bend a bit
I'll make "em mad, by wrecking it
I'll twist the text and I'll hype that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

                    BOTH:
Par'dy, par'dy slappin' my knee, hack away me
I'll twist the text and I'll harm that hit
And then send to the site of the par'dy

His spoof was o'er but we'll still write more
And submit to the site of the par'dy



Dialogue 3


                     DEE RANGE
Chairman Rick takes his duties seriously, I see


                     MAYOR PHIL
Yes, in the interests of preserving our kingdom for future generations.  See young Luke, frolicking through the tulips with pretty Emiloca?  They are our future, Dee.  The TTP are building a world where youngsters like Luke and Emi and Charlie and the Hilary-h8er can prosper


                    HILARY-H8ER
FCKN BTCH! GO SUK ORANJ FUZZY HAIRY BABOON-BALLS


                    DEE RANGE
And may good fortune smile upon them, Mayor Phil.


                    AGRIMORFEE
Now I bid you farewell, Dee and Stuey Poo





                    STUEY POO
I must also away, Dee, to attend my duties serving our good and benevolent ruler, King ChuckyG.  Until the morrow. Ta-ra!


                    DEE RANGE
Ta-ra!

     ”Sighing Softly To The River”

Parody by Johnny D:
   "Spying Stuff From Lewd Submitters”


                    KING CHUCKY-G
Tormented with the stuff I've read
In parodies I'm shown

On my mouse-pad I bang my head
My stomach turns and groans

At how the pornographic gist
Of songs turned into noise

Can make one want to try to fist
Or buy oneself some "toys" !!

                     ATTENDANTS
Or buy oneself some "toys" ? Ha-ha !!

                    KING CHUCKY-G
Appalled, I swill,
Gin, ale, and pills,
To set my mind at ease

So ill, I'm green,
From lusty scenes,
I'm spying full of sleaze

Spying stuff from lewd submitters!
See their parodies,
Set the censors all a-quiver,
Hustling stupid sleaze!

                     ATTENDANTS
Stupid sleaze!

                    KING CHUCKY-G
When I look, and take their measure,
Censorship is just ---
While their Doppler-radar pleasure
Raves tornadic lust!

                     ATTENDANTS
Yes it's sleazy and it's rough!
Wave away that sleazy stuff!

Censor, censor, send it hence sir!
Cast away its foul offense sir!

Heaven speed thee, Chucky G,
May thy readers happy be!

Heaven speed thee, Chucky G,
May thy read--ers haaaaap---py be!

                    KING CHUCKY-G
Yet, the sleaze is but a symptom,
Of our world today

Hunter Thompson, Georgie Plimpton,
had a lot to say

                     ATTENDANTS
'lot to say!

                    KING CHUCKY-G
Ah! The stu--u--pid lewdly brew--ew--ing,
Of the rogues who--ooo write,
All the sleaze I'm now un--do--oooing,
Morning, noon, and night!

                     ATTENDANTS
Shocking tales a rogue could write,
Writing morning, noon, and night!

AmIRight, thy bat-tle rages,
For thy smut-less spot-less pages!

Tough a job is Chucky G's,
Censoring the fickle sleaze!

Tough a job is Chucky G's,
Censoring --- the --- fiiiiiiiiiiiiii-ckle sleaze!

Dialogue 4


                    STUEY POO
Dee! Dee! I have some terrible news!


                    DEE RANGE
What could it be my friend?


                    STUEY POO
As you know, I just left for the castle.  Alas, as I entered I overheard King Chucky-G discussing his daily parody surveillance duties, and I fear for AmIRight, Dee.  I do!


                    DEE RANGE
Whatever can you mean, Stuey Poo?


                    STUEY POO
King ChuckyG is of heavy heart, and I have never heard such weariness in his voice.

                   
                    DEE RANGE
Pray tell, Stuey Poo.


                    STUEY POO
As you know, King ChuckyG reads all submissions prior to posting, lest our delicate sensitivities are bruised by an untoward sentiment that a parodist, in a weak moment, may conceive.


                    DEE RANGE
Yes.  Occasionally a tainted work must be erased to protect the global innocence – and King ChuckyG is a man of fine judgement.


                    STUEY POO
Alas, Dee, it is far far worse than you can possibly imagine.

     ”The Duke of Plaza-Toro"

parody by Phil Alexander
   "Full of Smut and Porno"


                 STUEY POO
On a website that's called AmIRight
These songs people were writing
Were full of naughtiness that might
Be thought (by some) exciting
Though Chucky G's a patient man
His patience might be gorn-o
They're full of thought
And so well-wrought
But rather naught-
Y Parodies
They're full of smut and porno
Those songs are downright rude, oh oh!
They ought to be eschewed, oh oh!
They're full of thought
And so well-wrought
But rather naught-
Y Parodies
They're full of smut and porno

When, to prevent ententres, nought
Of which very really "double"
He instituted rules he thought
Would save him all this trouble
But when he checked his inbox
There to greet him in the morn-o
Were Enervating
Irritating
Master baiting
Melodies
So full of smut and porno
Such very silly fools, he thought
Can't follow my new rules, he thought
Such Enervating
Irritating
Master baiting
Melodies
So full of smut and porno

When told that they would be chucked out
Unless they went up-market
Some authors the rude bits sucked out
The rest just thought "Oh, fark it"
They sent their smut submissions in
Now Chucky G's forlorn-o
We’re hafta fight
For AmIRight
The only site
For parodies
But full of smut and porno
Now Chucky'd like to say, that he
Is gonna get his way, is he
We hafta fight
For AmIRight
The bestest site
For parodies
For no more smut and porno!



Dialogue 5


                    DEE RANGE
Then we must help ChuckyG.  We must call a village meeting and conceive a plan that will rid AmIRight of this pestilence – this vermin – these disgusting, puerile, inconsiderate, infantile… 


                    STUEY POO
You had me at pestilence, Dee, so ease up.  And in the early morn we shall!


 


                    JOHN A. BARRY
I must remark upon your great achievements, Willie.  You have plumbed levels of lewdness previously considered unplumbable.

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
Thankyou J.A.B.  I have been watching a lot of Big Brother.

                    JOHN A. BARRY
And, svengali-like, your charisma has attracted a veritable army of lewd-submitting henchmen, willing to obey your every command.  Prithee, what is the secret to your clever and lewd lasciviousness?

     ”The Captain Of The Pinnafore”

Parody by John A. Barry
    "My Gags Crammed With Crapulous Metaphors"


                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
My gags, crammed with crapulous metaphors. . .
Getting tight and getting stewed.
Bibing cherry schnapps good,
My antiheroes should
Take big bites of abundant food.

                    JOHN A. BARRY
Get sated on too much beer,
Perhaps eat up a whole deer
That drips unsvelte gravy.

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
Dig into a quartered quail,
Wash it down with quarts of ale--
Too much bevy and then get sickly.

                    JOHN A. BARRY
"Much bevy?"

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
A bevy.

                    JOHN A. BARRY
"What bevy?"

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
Harp-brewed bevy.

                    JOHN A. BARRY
Bevy from Guinness' brewery

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
So I'll drink three beers and twelve beers more
To get ideas for crapulous metaphors.

                    JOHN A. BARRY
You'll drink three beers and twelve beers more
To help fuel crapulous metaphors.

Your tunes 'bout breasts and satiated balls
Have lewd and rude content.
Sex-secretion songs you'll write,
Get 'em up on amiright,
Sneak in terms like "con," in French.

More than one time you have rhymed
About women wined and dined
While bespermed by "congress" men.

Bad language you do use,
About genitals and booze. . .
Yet rarely tamed by Chucky G.
Though "bottoms up" you may
Say in a double way,
you will never get caught, Willie

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
"What, never?"

                    JOHN A. BARRY
No, never

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
"What, never?"

                    JOHN A. BARRY
You’re too clever
In entendre jocularly.

So you'll give three leers and one leer more
As you pen those randy, nasty metaphors.

                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
I'm out of beer--off to the store
For fuel for crapulous metaphors.






Dialogue 6





                   STUEY POO
            (shouting)
Villagers of AmIRight!!  Lend me your ears!!  I come here to….


                    DEE RANGE
               (whispers)
psst, less theatrics, more integrity, Stuey Poo – but lace it with oomph!


                    STUEY POO
Fair point Dee. Villagers! I have news to tell - news of such horror that it could threaten our very existence!


                    MATTHIAS
Come off it, Stuey Poo – it can’t be that bad


                    STUEY POO
But it is, Matthias – far far worse in fact.  I challenge each of you after hearing this tale, to dismiss it as less than a crisis of mammoth import.


                    MATTHIAS
orrright, get on with it then…

     ”The Nightmare Song"

Parody by Johnny D:
   "King Chucky's Nightmare Song"


                    STUEY POO
When you run a web-site, you may try as you might
To maintain a facade of your piety

But you'll see some may use, randy language they choose
To indulge in, with loud impropriety

Porno raining like fire---the perverts conspire---
In numerous numbers to plunder you

First your motherboard goes, and surrenders to those,
Who would steal it impurely from under you

Then your firewall's rubble---your network's in trouble---
So terribly smart is their cracking

And you're now at a loss, and you fumble and floss
Ev'ry mem'ry address that they're hacking

Then the perverts all creep to the sound of a beep
And you see 'em all coming in faster

Next your keyboard resigns and politely declines
To take part in impending disaster

Well, you go get a Coke but it's warm and you choke
On that sugary ca-ra-mel brewage

While the lumbering teams with the horrible schemes
Start to bury your server in sewage

It's no dream, you are losing the battle they're choosing
You're shouting and screaming in diction

Which is something between impolite and obscene
And a very appalling affliction

And you're facing defeat from the vice-hammer-beat
Of that party of vengeful invaders

They're a ravenous horde--and your poor motherboard's
Alone there and now facing Darth Vader

You find an attorney asleep on a gurney
In your local hospital's lobby

And he says that your case is no ambulance-chase
And computers aren't his kind of hobby

Well, you're driving like mad and you're feeling real bad
As you hurry back home to your PC

Where they're playing lewd games, and they call you bad names
When you tell them they're slimy and sleazy

And this they can't stand, so they throw up a hand,
And you're staring at rude middle digital

And you're hurt and you're shocked and you're certain they've rocked
You so badly you're tempted to ditch it all

And now on your tube is a virtual boob
Which has somehow or other invaded it

And it's swelling so large it's as large as a barge
Every pixel you see has inflated it

It's a scheme of their vices, to get at low prices
Computer time free for the taking

They tickle your cable, their goal to enable,
Their filthy and foul mischief-making

You get a good filter to throw them off-kilter
(first you must re-boot with "Salute-Three")

And you beg for relief, but the Finger-of-Grief,
Flips a birdie and says " I'll compute free! "

On your screen, grosser sleaze -- nude wet apes in green trees,
Crawling flowers on apples and man-berries

While the randy hackers eat their SPAM and crackers,
Snickers, Slim Jims, and Maraschino cherries

You stare and you mourn so, as gut-wrenching porno
Is raping your CPU wildly

You bawl and you howl and to call this stuff foul
Is without a doubt putting it mildly ----

Your computer's a wreck,
And it's sicker than heck,
And a blundering whore,
Gives a thundering roar
From its screen, and within,
There's an unholy grin,
That was left by a creep,
For years deftly did sleep,
Then it woke up and rose,
And applied all its woes,
And some stuff that it flung,
Turned your hard drive to dung,
And a virus attacked,
Without warning or tact,
And you find yourself venting to Rover ----

But the hackers, at last --

Have now run out of gas --

And their blight was quite long --

-- ditto ditto my song --

-- and thank goodness they're both of them over!



Dialogue 7





                    STUEY POO
Please, I beg of you, this is no time for hysteria.  We must direct our energy to  addressing the crisis.  Does anybody know who these Lewd Submitters, evil of heart, could be?

                   
                     MATTHIAS
um…

                    STUEY POO
Yes, Matthias, have you something to say?

                   
                    MATTHIAS
Well it might well be nought Stuey Poo, but do you recall, after the Great Vote WipeOut Of July 2004, Overlord Kristof reported he’d seen the mischievous Willie Tit-Swallow Spit-Swallow tampering with the website algorithms?


                    DEE RANGE
Of course we do, and Good King ChuckyG arrested and banished him from our kingdom


                    MATTHIAS
Correct, Dee Range, but it was I who marched him to the gates, and Willie Tit Swallow Spit-Swallow proclaimed his innocence the whole way.  And as I evicted him from the kingdom, I heard the words “I’ll get you, you lowd-down, mother-f….”


                    STUEY POO
PLEASE, enough lewd language!


                    MATTHIAS
No there was a lot lot more, Stuey Poo, then he threatened to destroy ChuckyG and bring the whole of AmIRight down with him


                    VILLAGERS
GASP!

Parody by Matthias:
   “ Porn Freak Cried As Chuck Kicked Him Out"


                     MATTHIAS
Tit-Swallow cried as Chuck kicked him out
Said he had got other ticked
With a swiftful slap upon his frown
Chuck shook his cyber fist
He reached him by countless E-Mails
And added Spam did king
As he cussed and swore
And bought some more Porno
He's banned for eternity, For Eternity

And we shall never
Forget that night
Or the song that parodied he
Though I miss songs dirty
But will never write thee
For banneded I shall be

He never meant well
He'll burn in Hell
Til a new name he prevails
He'll always try
To parodize
Sex but only fails

He flipped off Chuck and he maligned
With a last flip of the bird
When all of a sudden he used his mind
And he seem to come unnerved
For he shook his head and took his stand
And he wrote of fair ladies
As the same were too
Clothes see though
To serve his lower vertebrae, Low vertebrae

Though he was afraid
The song he made
Twas cheering that night was he
And oh he's glad
To read comments at
His brand new parody

With much distaste
Made the king pale
He's messing with Chucky
He must of cracked
To return from sacked
A duel's all this means

Now though you may have read what's dead is dead
(For dead was the parody)
Chuck sent a paycheck for knights in red
For white knights were too pricey
It was none but the finest AmIRight squads
And pimp butt as could be
For they clearly knew
This guy is though
Cause a man of this degree, of dis degree
Will be gone I vow
For they shall plough
Twill be deathly sight to see
This quest they're sent
Shown no respect
All songs must prove discreet

This horny youth
Chuck went to sleuth

And found his porno craze
Twill spray the mace
Upon his face
His eyes are both ablaze

His eyes, his eyes, his eyes, his eyes are both ablaze!!!

Dialogue 8

                    STUEY POO
Well, if that’s the case, Matthias, we know our enemy, and he probably has an army of Lewd Submitters to back his evil plan.  We must make haste and stop him.  But we need a plan and a strategic leader. 


                    K1CHYD
The man for the job is obviously Overlord Kristof, ex Parodist Laureate, and a man of great wealth


                    KRISTOF
              (stepping forward)
I would consider it an honour to…


                    STUEY POO
Alas, Overlord Kristof is NOT the man for the job, K1CHYD, because I have reason to doubt his loyalty to King ChuckyG


                    K1CHYD
What are you saying?


                    STUEY POO
K1CHYD, have you ever wondered why Kristof is no longer the Parodist Laureate?


                    K1CHYD
He resigned of course.


                    STUEY POO
Nay, not so.  King ChuckyG appointed him as reward for identifying Willie Tit-Swallow as the Great-Vote-Deleter – but I also know that King ChuckyG terminated his tenure.


                    VILLAGERS
GASP!


                   STUEY POO
for committing a heinous sin – the sin of disrespect.


                    K1CHYD
Disrespect?


                    STUEY POO
Yes – as you know, even the TTP would not exist if it weren’t for the Authors of The OS-es….and who is King ChuckG’s favourite A.O.T.O.S.?


                    K1CHYD
The Lord High CountryWesterner.


                    STUEY POO
Yes, Kris Kristofferson – and to this day, Kristof Robertson has not written a single parody to the Lord High CountryWesterner!


                    KRISTOF
But that’s just a matter of time, Stuey Poo


                    STUEY POO
Time you say? But Kristof, you have already penned nine score parodies.  When is this time of which you speak? 


                    KRISTOF
How about Tuesday?

    ”I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major-General"

Parody by Stuart McArthur
   “So when will Kristof Robertson do one by Kris Kristofferson?”


                     STUEY POO
So when will Kristof Robertson do one by Kris Kristofferson?
That Kristof has not done a Kris Kristofferson one's bothersome
It could be from the soundtrack to that chicky flick "A Star Is Born"
or spotlighting Kristofferson - how far he's come (and far he's gorn)
Now Kris (not Kristof) had addictions, some would say had maladies
while Kristof (but not Kris) is more addicted to mad parodies
For Kristof to be Kris-Kristoffer-son-free there is no excuse
though freedom's just another word, says Kris, for nothing left to lose

yes, freedom's just another word, says Kris, for nothing left to lose
(x three)

If Kris Kristoffer-son learns of this Kristof-snub he might abuse
the stuff he gave up when his options were 'drunkard' or LIFE! to choose
or maybe he will write a song detailing how it did induce
a one-way trip to Tallahassee looking for a bridge to use

or maybe he will write a song detailing how it did induce
a one-way trip to Tallahassee looking for a bridge to use


So when will Kristof Robertson do one by Kris Kristofferson?
By now he should've done one! (though I don't want to be quarrelsome)
Seems Kristof, about Kris Kristofferson, is prejudici-al
It seems he'd rather write about things mostly artifici-al
He could've been researching Kris Kristofferson's mad ancestors
or what's with Kris Kristofferson and Billy Joe McAllister?
or what's with that Rhodes Scholarship, and did it really open doors
for Kris and Rita Coolidge (just before their harrowing divorce)

for Kris and Rita Coolidge (just before their harrowing divorce)
(x three)

And furthermore, despite his standing in the music industry
Kris wasn't offered by Kristof an AmIRight-based ministry
and is it right that Kristof's done so many Kinks and Beatles songs
while Kristof's Kris-Kristofferson-count's less than Livvy Newton-John's

So is it right that Kristof's done so many Kinks and Beatles songs
while Kristof's Kris-Kristofferson-count's less than Livvy Newton-John's


Oh sure, we know he can't do plumbing - and his sink is fountain-like
and Catherine Zeta-Jones is prob'ly not her hubby's mountin' bike
and Allah, Buddah, Yoda, Odin and Jehovah, Osiris...
should rightly take priority above Kristofferson, so Kris...
it's best that you continue spending Sunday mornings coming down -
To Help You Make It Through The Night, ignore Kristof (that mean, lowdown....)
and don't be too offended that the OS Kristof chose to use
for F.C.U.K. was by Village People and not one of yours

his F.C.U.K. was by Village People and not one of yours
(x three)

If "From the coalmines of Kentucky - and the Californian sun"
don't stir the parodific juices of Kristofer Robertson
there's nothing we can do I s'pose - except hope that the day will come
when Kristof Robertson will do a song by Kris Kristofferson

there's nothing we can do I s'pose - except hope that the day will come
when Kristof Robertson will do a song by Kris Kristofferson



Dialogue 9


                   KRISTOF
But I don’t like Kris Kristofferson


                    LEO JAY
Enough of your indulgences, Kristof.  Stuey Poo’s right.   That King ChuckyG holds The Lord High CountryWesterner in high esteem should alone warrant two parodies.  Your inaction suggests evil lurks in your heart.  I suspect that your interests and those of AmIRight do not intersect.


                    KRISTOF
Ah! And so speaks Leo Jay!  Leo Jay?  You ask us to heed you, when half the time we do not know who Leo Jay is!

Parody By Kristof Robertson:

                    KRISTOF
Wee Leo Jay; say, who is he?
More pseudonyms than P. Diddy
Is it Leo, Leia or Lee?
He’s Leo Jay….say who?

Mistress Leola cracks the whip
Lee O’Shea likes to Guinness sip
Hey, Lee O.J., please get a grip
He’s Liao Zhe…say who?

Why this occurs, I’m still deciding
Maybe from ChuckyG, Li’s hiding
Does he wear spandex for crime fighting?
Hey, Leo Jay….’zat you?

What nom-de-pun will Leo choose?
Three syllables he doth abuse
Frank-lee, I’m real-lee-o confused…
Oui, le aux je….c’est vous!

Lee O’s written many parodies
Name-swapping schizophrenically
Is Leo/Leigh a he or she?
See, Lea? OK….it’s you!

New AmIRighters are quite wary
But Leo’s “fami-lee” ain’t scary
In on the joke? You’ve popped your cherry
Hey, Leo Jay….tres cool!!

                      JEFF REUBEN
Kristof’s right, Leo – you have no right to attack him


                     LEO JAY
Ah!  And so speaks Jeff Reuben!  Jeff Reuben?  A man consumed with jealousy that I challenged and beat him for the heart of fair Princess Arwen!





                    ARWEN
              (stepping forward and separating them)
Stop!  the two of you – Your belligerence is ill-considered for tis another that I love. 


                    Villagers
GASP!


                   ARWEN
What joy of mine to announce that my heart has become captive to that prolific TTP NJ. Michael, and I am dizzy in love with his charming ways


                   NJ. MICHAEL
Dubya is a monkey’s butt.


                    DEE RANGE
Enough!  Enough of your in-fighting!  I fear the Lewd Submitters have already managed to rent asunder the very fabric of our glorious kingdom.  We need someone who can unite us.  Someone who would never pen a lewd word.  Someone who we  respect, and who has such hatred of smut he will rid us forever of that evil scourge.


                    STRAY POOCH
You speak wisely, Dee Range – and there is such a man.  This man is not only a TTP, he is a master strategist, and he is pure of heart and mind.  He detests smut with a passion, and he could capture and destroy the Lewd Submitters on his own.  But, with volunteers to assist him, his masterful strategies will prove invincible.

    ”My Name Is John Wellington Wells"

Parody by Stray Pooch:
   "His Name is John 'Johnny D' Smalls"


                    STRAY POOCH
His name is John "Johnny D" Smalls
He's a writer who likes curtain calls.
He'll seldom use curses
in clever-filled verses
(Well, now and then "witches" or "balls.")
If you want a proud show to get "fixed"
(Or you just want a song about hicks)
You have only to call on the good "Doctor Hall"
Class of 1776!

He's a first-rate perveyor of ditties
And for raising a "posthumon's" shade
With effects that are silly or witty
There's no better pen in the trade.

Smut-filters, he knows the ways of 'em
With such knowledge he never gets burned
He tells all the prudes they can shove 'em (We love 'im!)
And brings us uncensored returns!

For he can parody, villain or charity
Homeland security, falsified purity
Heroic histories, musical mysteries
Halloween Rhapsodies, or colonoscopies,
or colonoscopies.

With matches so magical, porno-puns tragical
Pacing spectacular, humor Star Trek-ular
Tracts gastronomical, flatulence comical
And, if you want it, he
Takes a production and spoofs it in quantity
O-h-h-h-h-h-h-h,

If any one's looking for kicks.
You'll find some spectacular tricks!
You have only to call on the good "Doctor Hall"
Class of 1776!

He can raise you throngs of dongs
(And that without erectors)
And geeky herds of nerds
And crabby, cackling spectres
He can tell the truth - or spoof
The monsters we've all feared, and
He can bramage dains with pains
Or sing you a song of Cir-dan.

Then, he can speculate, on choosing flounder bait
He can make fun of hate, tell how to masturbate,
Sing of chicks who inflate, or techniques to fellate,
Or if he feels sedate
He begs his lover to brand him and flagellate.

But in totality his rationality
Has the morality of all mortality
Showing his malady, spoofing all validly,
Such are his talents, he
Isn't the man to be mired in a fallacy
O-h-h-h-h-h-h-h,

His name is John "Johnny D" Smalls
He's a writer who likes curtain calls.
Nobody here curses
His pleasured-filled verses
(Though prob'ly he gets kinky calls.)
If any one's looking for kicks.
You'll find some spectacular tricks!
You have only to call on the good "Doctor Hall"
Class of 1776!

                    VILLAGERS
Hoorah!  Three cheers for Major-General Johnny D Smalls!

Against, M-G J.D, your hate of depravity

Forgive me for fawning, but M-G. J.D. you're in

We'll tear them apart, we will rip out their hearts

I've sampled your pick-and-mix
With songs of lovers' pr..edilictions
And great big d..igits
And cheeks askew!
Sha-a-a-a-a-ame on you

So when you're writing something pornographic
Know pornographic parodies are wrong
And when it's all explicit-ally graphic
A scandalous and smutty sort of song
Instead you could try something educational
On grammar, trigonometry or light
And if it's rather silly or irrational
At least, at least it's clean, and so is AmIRight

So no big bouncing boobs for me
No buttocks firm and round
No saucy maids, no fishnet tights
Will e'er be seen here at AmIRight
Nor, never leather-bound!

No doubling entend-er-ers
And anything obscene'll
Be punish-ed with virtual whips
When the whip cracks
Around your knackers
It'll bring you to your knees, yeo ho!
For a punishment that's penal

A parodista, I
No writer from the sewer
I write what's clean and pure
Let's clean up AmIRight
Let's clean up a-a-a-miright


Dialogue 16



                 SCATHE
Yes, let’s clean up AmIRight forever from these from lewd spoofs


                 K1CHYD
            (doing his best Jack Nicholson)
Lewd Spoofs!  You can’t handle lewd spoofs!  Son, we live in a world that has balls, and those balls have to be guarded by men with puns…


                 SCATHE
er, ye-es…..we’ve been saying that from the outset, K1CHYD – so what’s your point?


                 K1CHYD
well, no point really, or context either, but it was such a good line, Stu said I could put it in


                ADAM E
           (standing up)
Well in that case, Well Said K1CHYD! - and well said pretty well everyone tonight.  And so Gentlemen – let’s rest for the morrow, whence we shall surely return AmIRight to its rightful state of purity.  Tally Ho!


               ALL
Tally Ho!

Parody by Stuart McArthur:
   "I’m Called Princess Arwen"


                ARWEN
I’m called Princess Arwen – a godsend to Darwin
a triumph of Evolution
I’m known for my beauty – I’m such a blonde cutie
Dear MP, it’s me whom you’ve won

So heed well, MP, my fears - don’t be a hero, please
come back and make me a wife
Those lewd dudes give me shivers – if you die I’ll live a 
sad pouting miserable life

I knitted you socks but then I spilt Radox on them
Then I tripped over a sleigh
Of my love that must be proof  (although, in honest truth
I do that ev-ery day)

I hope those lewd writers will get smooshed like spiders
so, raising the flag, will be you
but if you get killed, my love, I guess that I will just

Parody by Johnny D

                   PIRATES WHO PENSTANZAS
Now what is this, and what is that, and why does General Johnny sing
At such a time of night as this, about Chuck-y, our stalwart King?

Sir Johnny is, and always was, the most laconical a man!
It's his invariable rule to sing as little as he can!

What strange occurrence can it be that calls Sir Johnny now to sing
At such a time of night as this, about Chuck-y, our stalwart King?

About Chuck-y our stalward King,
At such a time of night?





                    WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
Forward, perverts, and seize that General there, before he can sing another note of that over-done opus!





                   PIRATES WHO PENSTANZAS
The perverts! The perverts! Oh, despair!


                    LEWD SUBMITTERS
Yes, we're the perverts, so despair!


                   MAJOR-GENERAL JOHNNY D.
Rodderdick, here! Oh, joy! Oh, rapture!
Summon your men and effect their capture!


                   WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW

Rodderdick, save us!

Dutiful Pirates,
My gun's made of wood -- alas, cannot fire it !

He's telling the truth, he cannot fire it !


                    WILLIE TIT-SWALLOW
With base conceit,
You jerked us 'round, we're reeling!

Revenge is sweet,
A pornographic feeling!

With New-Age flair,
And music played by Yanni,

For death prepare,
Unhappy General Johnny!


                     MAJOR-GENERAL JOHNNY D.
Am I to die, unshaven, unshampooed?

Away with them, to the Drag Queen Bar!



Dialogue 19





                         MAJOR-GENERAL JOHNNY D.
I command you, Colonel Dee Range, to round up the pathetically star-struck Lewd Submitters – but make sure you catch Willie Tit-Swallow, for I fear he may have escaped.





                         STUEY POO
Gee, I had my doubts about that “Victoria’s Secret” strategy of yours, Major-General Johnny D, but again you have proven to be a master strategist.


                         MAJOR-GENERAL JOHNNY D.
Alas, our fight is not over until we capture Willie Tit-Swallow and reveal his true identity.  For until we destroy the root of all evil, Stuey Poo, I fear the evil may mutate and in another form reappear.  For evil can reappear in the unlikeliest form at the unlikeliest time


                         STUEY POO
Wow, a master strategist and a wise philosopher, JD – you are ON fire, dude!




                           STUEY POO
Crikey, Dee, that was fast.  I’m beyond impressed, which is a big statement after just spending a day with Johnny D – and what news do you bring from the battlefield?         


                           DEE RANGE
Not news, Stuey Poo, but a story – nay, an amazing tale, that a POW has just recounted for me


                           STUEY POO
Well, go on Dee, spill the beans.


                            DEE RANGE
It seems this particular POW met and befriended Willie Tit-Swallow when he was first evicted from AmIRight, and they used to write together.  And this is his story about one particular conversation they once shared



SONG  20
Click on the Original Song and then its MIDI  (song starts after a  5-second intro):
    ”Willow Tit Willow”

Parody by Dee Range:
   “Will-he Tit-swallow-Spit-swallow”


                    DEE RANGE
With the glee of a pervert, a little dimwit
would write Will-he Tit-swallow-Spit-swallow
And I asked of him, "Will-he, why do you submit
Using Willie-Tit-swallow Spit-swallow
Is it lewdness or just Tourettes, Willie?" I asked
That you write about porn to get Chucky Aghast?
He just flipped me the finger, returned to his task
Did Will-he Tit-swallow-Spit-swallow

"He lapped at her breast as she sat on the bed,
wond-ring, Will-he tit swallow my yabos?
And with bold desperation she fondles his head
Oh, will she, he wonders, spit/swallow?
She bobbed and he sighed, with a gargle she spits
As he purged himself be-tween her willowy lips
And a bellow arose as her incisors nip"
Wrote Will-he Tit-swallow Spit-Swallow

Now I felt I could cure such lewdness with a change
From old Will-he Tit-swallow Spit/Swallow
With his Porno affliction I'll call him DEE RANGE!



….not Will-he Tit-swallow Spit/Swallow!
But if you remove phallus, will Tourette’s then DIE?
Will GARISH and FETID just now become SLY!
“Oh, I DOUBT if it will!”  -  I exclaimed with a CRY!
I AM WILL-HE TIT-SWALLOW SPIT/SWALLOW!!!



Dialogue 20





                   STUEY POO
What the?  But, but, Dee, I’ve been such a loyal friend to you.


                  DEE RANGE 
You mean a good information-source, my man


                  MAJOR-GENERAL JOHNNY D.
AHA! -  so it was YOU who was informing and forewarning YOURSELF about our battle plans?


                 DEE RANGE
yeah, um DUHHHHH! But before I slay you both, I will take a minute to reveal the inner complex workings of my psyche.  My lewdness all started when I was banished from AmIRight for the Great Vote Deletion, yet I was totally innocent of the crime.  Innocent I tells ya.


                 STUEY POO
Yeah  - I kinda thought so


                DEE RANGE
           (incredulous)
WHAT? You DO?


                 STUEY POO 
Yeah, well the server had been crashing a bit that week, and Kristof had been getting stuck into the bottle after being sacked by ChuckyG for not writing a Kris Kristofferson parody, so his evidence was hardly what you’d call reliable, so I never really believed it was you Willie, er, Dee.


               DEE RANGE
Well!  Well that makes a huge difference to my perspective.  All I’ve ever really wanted was to be understood. And maybe loved a little.  And bonked a bit.


               STUEY POO
Yeah, I understand, mate.  But anyway, do what you have to do, Dee Range.  You’ve won this battle fair and square.  Major-General Johnny D and I are prepared to die in the name of AmIRight, aren’t we, Major-General Johnny D?


               MAJOR-GENERAL JOHNNY D.
Pip Pip, Stuey Poo!  Too right!  I want Willie’s powerful throbbing sword thrust between my ribs like a shiny silver phallus, penetrating my heart and allowing the pure goodness of that throbbing organ to ejaculate up through his firm rigid weapon, thereby transforming it into a shaft of righteousness.  An honourable death, to be talked about for generations to come, by Luke, Emi, Charlie, the Hilary-H8er….


               DEE RANGE
          (interrupting)
…yeah yeah, JD, but I dunno now.  Now that Stuey Poo’s empathised with my plight, it’s kinda like my anger’s lost its edge or somethin, and I don’t feel like killing any more or somethin.  Or lewd submitting neither, come to think of it.  I guess all my anger and lewd submitting was just a pathetic cry for help, Stuey Poo..


              STUEY POO
Well what say we each blow the head off a pint of ale, and forget it happened. After all, I’m busting for a quick ending


             DEE RANGE
Great idea Stuey Poo.

I would immediately start a thread with suggestions for Hollywould/Broadway actors/actresses to play each of the parts.

And like I said in my message to you earlier, this is way beyond brilliant. It is a creative work of pure genius that will live forever, at least here on AmIRight.Congrats to each of the contributors, I'll be laughing my ass off for a month in the Colorado mountains thinking about this.

Agri - I've been PM-ing Chucky about that, but he says it's too long to enter as a parody  (which I was going to do under "A Roomful Of Monkeys" to avoid the 10-submissions-required-for-Author-List access problem)

Good idea, JD - I didn't think of that, although I suppose the opera already has this thread for similar permanent access - although the "ALBUM" thread will probably bob around the top for longer than this thread will, as more Albums get added - so, yes I'll do that...

any other ideas of where to store it, or what to do with it, from anyone would be appreciated :)

meanwhile, what other actors do people want playing their roles in the Hollywood production? 
we have 3 cast already

I have to admit that the biggest laugh this masterpiece got from me was this reply:


                 K1CHYD
well, no point really, or context either, but it was such a good line, Stu said I could put it in



Scary! You guys know me better than I know myself. That line is just sooo me!


Does anybody else have casting preferences for their characters? 


Yoda?

No?

All right, then it has got to be Owen Wilson, on a bad hair day of his he comes pretty close to me on a good one (in a dimmed room).

uncanny - it's like I'm seeing double! :o

PS everyone - I've worked out a way to submit the entire thing as 20 parodies, each containing a song and chunk of dialogue.

Each submission is attributed to the name of the person who wrote the song within it, but prefaced with "Part #"
eg. the first submission is called "Part A - Scathe"

That's because I've put "Pirates Who Penstanzas" as the author for each, so the 20 parodies will appear together under that Author name on the Authors List - and the "Part A" preface ensures all chunks will appear on that page in the correct order

Check it out on tomorrow's postings.

Looking at your pic just now, I immediately thought of the talented actor David Morse ("St. Elsewhere", "The Green Mile", "Dancer In the Dark") for you. He might not sing, but he acts better than Owen.

yes, I thought I might get someone saying that

I even considered loading 5 up on 4 consecutive days, but I thought everyone would be well and truly sick of it by then, if they're not already, and I only did the mass-posting as a means of getting the whole opera onto the Parody Authors Page under "Pirates" (and to honour all the 12 contributors who put all the work in) so it will be permanently accessible to them and others, and newbies

also I noticed John A. Barry's 26-parody mass submission a few days ago didn't get any negative reaction so I thought I'd put the foot down and go for it. 

And so finally, that's it!  There will be no more imposing on AmIRighters' patience ;) 

sorry adagio :-[ - I don't suppose the fact you scored a mention in Part B (or Part C?) helps at all

Stuart, I can't download the songs in the links and don't know by name any of the songs in the operetta other than The Major General's Song.

I have enjoyed listening to the CDs I have, the 1968 D'Oyle Carte 2CD set.

The question is do you know which song is which on the CD? CD 1 has 15 tracks, the last being the "Major General's Song" and CD 2 has 25 tracks (some are instrumentals alone).

If anyone could provide a list or a link to the order I would be appreciative.

Red Ant - there are twenty songs in our opera but ony a few are from Pirates of Penzance.  If you go to my first Pirates thread, where I asked for contributions, my first post there lists all the songs, and from which operas.

However, the easiest way to get the music is to click on the song links within the opera, which take you to the lyrics of each song, then you'll see the MIDI link near the title of the song above the lyrics, and click on that.  It should automatically play.

I'd be surprised if you don't have a program that will automatically play it for you.  I use QuickTime Plug-In Version 6.5.1 which is an Apple freeware program, so the best trick is to download that from Apple, then you can hear all the OS's as you're reading them from the full opera posting on this thread (I've even included intro times next to each song-link, so you know when the song part of the MIDI starts)

ciao - stu

Thanks Stu. Since that accesses a different player than my SoundBlaster Live, I wasn't too familiar with the settings. Low and behold---It was on mute. I'll give 'em a listen today when I get home from work.
