Baby Boomer Remakes of Old 1960's and 1970's Music Favorites

This has been going around the net, most recently in The Oregonian newspaper and Oregonlive.com on March 2, 2010. If some of the artists of the '60s and '70s were to revise their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers, the song titles might look something like these:

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"

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"

Willie Nelson: "On the Commode Again"

Marvin Gaye: "I Heard It Through the Grape Nuts"
