DISCLAIMER...It's Going Around

The following items are NOT original with me.
You might even have seen them before, as this list is going around the Internet.
But, they made me laugh. . .and, frankly, any time I can laugh, that is good.

Right now, I am knee-deep in round two of student papers, and, well, I need a laugh. . .
Some of the artists of the 60s* (and maybe even the 70s) are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers. They include:

Bobby Darin --- Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash

Herman's Hermits ---Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker

Ringo Starr --- I Get By With a Little Help From Depends

The Bee Gees --- How Can You Mend a Broken Hip

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 --- I 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

Tony Orlando --- Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall

Helen Reddy --- I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore

Leslie Gore---
It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To.

And Last but NOT least:

Willie Nelson --- On the Commode Again

There, I hope that provided a Friday chuckle. Any favorites here?

Oh my, those are funny. I haven't seen them recently. When you live in Florida like I do and see the number of elderly, I mean really old, like I do, you can appreciate those even more. And I must confess, some of them strike a chord with me! Sadly.

Get those papers graded!
