First, a quick apology/explanation:

When I started trying to come up with something for this Summer Lovin’ week, I was having a hard time getting any ideas I was really enthused about. Then I read trillingstar's entry a few weeks ago and thought, yeah, I want to do something like that. But I still needed inspiration and then the title of the challenge itself gave me the answer –  summer lovin, the first two words in the song Summer Nights from the musical/movie Grease, the quintessential song about summer lovin! And I had so much fun I picked another song from Grease. 

And then when I was putting everything together(at the last minute because that’s what I do) I realized that what I had written had nothing at all to do with the name of the challenge. *headdesk*

So instead of spending the day trying to hurry and churn something out that more closely fits, I decided to go with what I have. And so my entry will not be about ‘Summer Lovin’ ’ but it is inspired by those words.

I apology for being such a dingbat.


Title: Oswald Lovin' written for Summer of Oz, Summer Lovin' Week
Notes: These song parodies are based on the real songs of real people,
who get all the credit, I'm just having a little fun with them.
The actual lyrics and names of the writers are listed after each song.
I've also added links to videos of the songs from the movie.






Oswald lovin’ happened so fast
Oswald lovin’ I had a cast
Met a boy crazy ‘s could be
Met a boy spoutin kids poetry
And uh oh, those pod o’ love nights!

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
Tell us more, tell us more
Did you get very far
Tell us more, tell us more
Like does he have a car?

(No, ya stupid fuck, he’s in prison, how the fuck
would he have a car? Plus he’s in for vehicular
manslaughter so I doubt he’d be drivin’ anyhow.
Just shut the fuck up if you’re going to sing bullshit questions like that!)

He slept by me, had a nightmare
I helped him change, pretended to care
His wife died, I held his hand
Saw his kids, was a happier man
Vern's plan begun, I'm on a run
But uh oh, those pod o' love nights!


Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!         
Tell us more, tell us more
Like was he a fag?
Tell us more, tell us more
You shoulda’ seen him in drag

(Yeah, I heard about that. I don’t go for that shit, Toby’s all man. Vern’s a dick.)

He got friendly, after a shave
Told me he loved me, that was so brave
He was shy, his first kiss with a man
Well, he was good, almost messed up the plan
Prison heat, con and prag meet
And, uh oh, those pod o’ love nights

Tell us more, tell us more
Did you slip him the tongue?
Tell us more, tell us more
Can he get me someone?

(What the fuck does that mean? Like hook you up?
Are we in high school? I told you before, you better shut the fuck up!)


I went to the hole, showed off my rear end
When I got out I said we’re not friends
He got drunk, I pushed him down
Then Vern and I pushed him around
Toby, boy, you ripped out my heart…
But, oh –

Wait a minute, wait a minute, hold up there.

What the fuck, it’s not your turn yet.
No, but you said you and Shillinger “pushed him around.”
Really, you’re going with that? You busted that boy’s shit up, Keller!

You for real?

Fine, fine, Vern broke his legs, I broke his arms, happy? You know how
fucking hard that is to rhyme? Blow me. In fact,
I’m fucking done here. Everyone knows how it ends – like shit!
No sailing away in to the sun in a goddamned flying car
for us! I was the only one who did any sailing, over
the fucking railing! There, that rhymed, ya fucks!

Tell us more, tell us –

I said I’m done! Get the fuck out of here!

~end~

Summer Nights written by Anthony Warlow, John Farnham

Summer loving had me a blast, oh yeah
Summer loving happened so fast,
I met a girl crazy for me,
Met a boy cute as can be,

Summer days drifting away,
To, uh oh, those summer nights

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car?

She swam by me, she got a cramp
He ran by me, got my suit damp
I saved her life, she nearly drowned
He showed off, splashing around

Summer sun, something's begun
But, oh, oh, these summer nights

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?

Took her bowling in the Arcade
We went strolling, drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
We stayed up 'till ten o'clock

Summer fling, don't mean a thing
But, oh, oh, those summer nights

Tell him more, tell him more
But you don't gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more
'Cause he sounds like a drag

Shoo-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop
shoo-bop-bop shoo-bop-bop shoo-bop-bop YEAH!

He got friendly, holding my hand
She got friendly down in the sand
He was sweet just turned eighteen
Well, she was good you know what I mean

Summer heat, boy and girl meet
But, oh, oh, the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more
Could she get me a friend?

It turned colder, that's where it ends
So I told her we'd still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she's doing now

Summer dreams, ripped at the seams
Bu-ut oh, those summer nights!
Tell me more, tell me more!

Oh my God, I HAD THE SAME IDEA.

Because when I first heard "Summer Lovin'," my immediate Pavlovian response was "Had me blast! Happened so fast!" But I was a complete and utter failure at getting anything to work, whereas what you did is FANTASTIC. I love it!

I especially liked Keller's not-quite-in-sync responses to the choir's questions! Those are classic Keller! You have his voice perfect here.

Toby’s all man. Vern’s a dick.

You got that right! LOL

I'm so glad you did this, and I think "inspired by" the ultimate song about Summer Lovin' is perfect for the theme!

Great, great job! :-)

I was wondering if anyone else would have the same idea, though it took me a while for inspiration to strike!

I had so much fun doing this, and I think Keller's impromptu remarks were the funnest.

Thank you so much for the great fb, I'm so glad you enjoyed this!

This is priceless! I love what you've done with the song, but I especially love all of the asides that aren't part of the song.

Great idea too, using songs from "Grease" to fit the theme.

Thank you!

I just couldn't imagine Chris *not* having something snarky to say!
