Lyrics for Singable Satire: "MEL AND HIS HERNIA"
ORIGINAL SONG : "Me and My Shadow", Rose, Dreyer and Jolson, 1927, as performed by Perry Como, Maurice Chevalier, and many others. PARODY COMPOSED: Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, December 2015. PLUS: A bonus poem, joining the disparate topics of hernia and gender-neutral language (see below!)
MEL and HIS HERNIA (to the tune of "Me and My Shadow")
Me with my hernia
Shuffling down the promenade
Perhaps that's why for months I haven't played.
It's always in my pants --
But chicks who check
Don't want to indulge.
For me and my hernia
Time has come to part our ways.
Mel and his hernia
Huffing down the avenue; ("Hey, Mel!")
Fellas discern 'cause
It's so displaced, it's not quite out of view.
"What sets things right?
You're so uptight.
"So, go have your surgery.
Soon, before that thing turns blue."
