Reminiscence: THE PARODY OF WORD-PAIRS, with thanks to the BeeGees, Tom Lehrer and Mary Poppins

POST #126
A REPRISE: Looking back at parody song-lyrics and wordplay...
While sweeping out the back closets of this blog, the editors stumbled on this 'complete set' of song-parodies from 2015. The songs are coupled with wordplay posts on our sister blog "Edifying Nonsense". The entire collection of foolishness is now published here for the first time in integrated form, including 'Ukulele-Friendly Format' slides.
ORIGINAL SONGS: Various (see below)
EDITOR: Giorgio Coniglio, May 2016.
