Which Rush songs are ripe for becoming Weird Al style pun-based parodies?

 

It'll probably be easiest to find these in songs where the song title is sung in a dedicated chorus. But anything goes.

 

I'll kick it off.

 

Working Man becomes Twerking Man. I'll leave the lyrics to the imagination. Probably something about a hard working male stripper. haha.

Second grade humor takes over. Apologies in advance. Oddly enough, I had trouble with the chorus, despite throwing together the first two verses.

 

The first line of the song must be plagiarized 

 

Distant Early Farting

 

An ill wind comes arising
Across the covers on the bed
It’s like breathing in the heavy water
Like choking in the acid rain
Red alert
Red alert

 

It's so hard to hold it in
Passing through the sphincter door
We need someone to talk to
But they’re passed out on the floor
Incontinent
Incontinent

 

The world hears my ass singing
But what am I to do?

Dare I be unPC and suggest that Cinderella Man is transitioning? Hey, it would make for a topical song and video!  B)

Hmmm...could very well replace the "Red Alerts" at the end of verse one

BAD DECISIONS
This man-bun ain't workin' at all
I'm sixty years old after all
Maybe I'll try a white-fro
 
BAD DECISIONS
I made a conference call
From a bathroom stall
Didn't know I was on video
 
BAD DECISIONS

All the World's indeed a steak...and we are merely taters


"The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is...people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e., the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e., the standards of thought) no longer exist."~ Hannah Arendt.  The Origins of Totalitarianism. 1967

While Googling Cinderella Man's lyrics, this serious analysis of the song came up third in the results. Check out the cast of characters who posted in this thread.

BIG MONKEY (about King Kong)

 

Big monkey from another world

Big monkey on a boat

Big monkey coming to the states

This boat can barely float

Big monkey make a million scream

Big monkey cause a fuss

Big monkey got star power

We'll put him, in the circus!

 

Sometimes tossing train cars around

Sometimes rolling in the mud

Sometimes picking up Fay Wray
Sometimes drawing blood

If we need another story

a war with Godzilla would be cool

We'll put it all on television

Make the Japanese look like fools

 

Big monkey from a distant world

Bullets bouncing off his hide

Big monkey got a mighty smell

Big monkey draw the flies

 

Sometimes eating lots of bananas

Sometimes knocking buildings down

Sometimes climbing the Empire State

Tossing planes to the ground

He'll start a new religion

A planet where apes can rule

They'll put it all on television

Make the humans look like fools
