I love this song. Unfortunately this karaoke version eliminates the entire final section of the song. And I'm talking the edit version. Heck, I'd like to have the full 43 minute version. Also, the background singer kind of gets in the way. Well, it's all we've got.

Is Halloween over? The tomato, native to the Americas, was introduced to Europe by the Spanish. An English botanist named John Gerard popularized the notion that they were poisonous. Indeed parts of the stem and leaves contain poisonous glycoalkaloids. As a result the fruit was not eaten in Britain or The American colonies until the 18th century. Today we know they are not dangerous...or are they????

Another Garage Band experiment. Donovan used an interesting effect on the verses. I wanted to try and replicate it, so I used Garage Band. I could not exactly match the effect, so I tried something similar. Because I recorded in GB, the volume may be a bit loud, so adjust headphones accordingly. I think the chorus is a bit louder than the rest but I'm tired of futzing with it.

This song was sung originally by <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7nOkVz79Xw"target="blank">Jerry Orbach</a>, who later became best known as Detective Lennie Briscoe on NBC's Law and Order. He was also the dad in Dirty Dancing. He died in December of 2004.

<font color=red><font size=4><u>WARNING</U></font></font> This PARODY is for ADULTS ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY LISTEN IF 1 - YOU ARE AN ADULT 2 - YOU HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR <font color=green><font size=4>"Hell I'd Do Ya"</font></font> This parody came about when I was goofing around in the Everyone's A Winner Chat Room and came up with the phrase "Hell I'd Do Ya" instead of "Hallelujah." The rest of the song sprang from that. It works equally well for both men and women to sing but, since I'm a guy, I sang it from a male perspective. (spoken) Let’s see. What would it take for me to want to sleep with you? hmmm (sung) When it’s 2 am and I’m drunk off my ass And no other woman’s* accepted my pass It doesn’t matter to me if you start to moo yeah But I’d have to be in a desperate place To overlook your homely face To think oh yeah what the heck I wanna screw ya Chorus: Hell I'd Do Ya Hell I'd Do Ya Hell I'd Do Ya Hell I'd Do Ya If I owed the mob a million bucks And they told me I was out of luck Unless you and I would bill and coo yeah I’d only want to give you a kiss If it meant I wouldn’t sleep with the fish And leave my whereabouts an empty clue yeah (Chorus) If a suicide bomber declared jihad Unless I agreed to take you to bed And showed me the bomb he had in his shoe yeah I’d still have to think it over a bit Even as the fuse was lit I’d probably wait til a few seconds before it blew, yeah (Chorus) If there were a nuclear holocaust And everyone else’s lives were lost And we were alone on this planet, me and you here If you and your ugly face Was the only way to save the Human race I’d still need to search first for a big keg of brew, yeah Then (Chorus) If Jesus came back, and that’s no lie And said I must go forth and multiply And told me no rapture for me unless I woo ya I’d rather bang Barbra Bush** Or Rosie O’Donnell’s*** big fat tush But I guess I’d have to do it for the King of Jews yeah (Chorus) 2 x (spoken) See It wouldn’t take much?
