Those Golden But Moldy Oldies

They call them oldies for a reason. What follows is a list of songs updated to reflect the trials and tribulations of the geriatric set. If you are a Baby Boomer or older, you' ll want to snap your fingers (if your arthritis permits) and tap your foot (if your gout permits).

But first, a word from our sponsor....



Now for your listening pleasure - turn up your hearing aids -

Disc One

Herman's Hermits -- Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker
The Bee Gees -- How Can You Mend a Broken Hip?
Bobby Darin -- Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Hot Flash
Ringo Starr -- I Get By With a Little Help From Depends
Roberta Flack -- The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face
Johnny Nash -- I Can't See Clearly Now
Paul Simon -- Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver
The Commodores -- Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom
Marvin Gaye -- Heard It Through the Grape Nuts
Procol Harem -- A Whiter Shade of Hair
Leo Sayer -- You Make Me Feel Like Napping
The Temptations -- Papa's Got a Kidney Stone
Abba -- Denture Queen

Helen Reddy -- I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore
Leslie Gore -- It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To
Supremes -- Falling In and Out of Bed
Willie Nelson -- On the Commode Again

I wouldn't have mixed one disc unless I had the full intentions of making up some more hits to add to the list. Without further adieu, here are my additions:

For your pleasure and a chance to sing along, here is one more with the complete lyrics:

Corn In My Stool

(To the tune of Born To Be Wild)
With apologies to Steppenwolf


Get your bowels a movin'
Head on out to the bathroom,
Lookin' for some relief
And whatever comes out soon.
Yeah, darlin' go make it happen
Take the tissue in a love embrace
Fire all your guns at once
And explode all over the place.
It's like smoke and lightning
Heavy fartin' thunder
Tryin' to stay upwind
From that feelin' down under.
Yeah, darlin' go make it happen
Take the tissue in a love embrace
Fire all your guns at once
And explode all over the place.
Like prune juice was mild
Yes, there's corn, corn in my stool
We can crap so high
And wish we could die.
Corn in my stool
Corn in my stool.

Did you mean rocking chair on?

I was hoping some others might have come with their own - for laughs.

Anyway, these types of spoofs are a lot of fun to put together.

How about "I Put Depends on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins... or
"Love is Like Oxygen Masks" by Sweet,...or
"Rocking Chair Hoochie Koo" by Rick Derringer?

Great posts as always pointy,...and expect another contribution soon...

Ooh - wonderful, Blue. We haven't had a contribution in a while from anyone.
