The Rutles- Piggy in The Middle


Para que vayan abriendo boca. La surrealista letra original de los beatles es masacrada con un sentido del humor incre�ble. Musicalmente de las menos interesantes por ser tal vez demasiado obvia. Tienen plagios m�s sutiles.

Piggy In The Middle
(Nasty/McQuickly)
Parlourphone single R-5655, 11/24/67
Lead Vocal: Ron Nasty

I know you know what you know
but you should know by now that you're not me
Talk about a month of Sundays
Toffee nosed wet weekend as far as I can see

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
Piggy in the middle
Doo-a-poo-poo

Bible punching heavyweight
evangelistic boxing kangaroo
Orangutang and anaconda
Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse
even Pluto too

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
Piggy in the middle
Doo-a-poo-poo

(Stig is dead, honestly)

One man's civilization
is another man's jungle, yeah
They say revolution's in the air
I'm dancing in my underwear
'cause I don't care

Hey diddle diddle
The Cat's in the fiddle
Piggy in the middle
Doo-a-poo-poo
Doo-a-poo-poo

[The following four lines can be heard in Rutles bootlegs,
but do not appear on the released recording]

Civilizing jungle bunnies
guinea pigs including me and you
Talk about a knock-kneed frog
Second cousin to a nun living in the zoo

Walky talky man says hello, hello, hello
with his ballerina boots
you can tell he's always on his toes
Hanging on a Christmas tree
Screaming like a bogey man
getting up my nose

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
Piggy in the middle
Doo-a-poo-poo
a-poo-poo-poo

This little piggy went to market
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy had roast beef
and this little piggy had none
This little piggy went
Woooo!
All the way home
(repeats, fades)

No se preocupe. El comentario suprimido soy yo. Acabo de adquirir el dominio "Antarctica starts here" del blogger por si me da por volver a postear algún día y estaba probando.

Le decía que cómo no me di cuenta ayer de que se trata de "All you need is cash", verdad?

No reconocí a Eric Idle... Imperdonable.

Sin duda necesito vacaciones ya.

Creo que la película está editada en DVD por aquí, ¿no? Me pareció verla un día por el VIPS.

Lo mejor: el cameo de George Harrison.

Ey!!!! Mil gracias por la referencia. Es para morirse, estoy comparando y me parto...pero si es que hay gente para todo.

Por lo menos no tendrán el morro de seguir cantando no?

Cuando los beatles sacaron antology, rutles sacaron archeology...
Aparte de eso muchas canciones no son tan calcadas, y son celebradas en los conciertos de Innes como el icono subcultural que son...ya me explayare mas a fondo...
