As people may have noticed, certain people have excelled at parodying the timeless Beatles Tunes.
I sincerely wish to thank Zig and Mean Mrs. Mustard for starting this tradition and giving me the courage to parody them myself. I ask you to repost any parodies in this thread to allow all rewritten songs in one place. However this thread Is open to you guys, also. As John Wrote "Bring On The Lucie"
Here was my first attempt, written to the tune of Can't Buy Me Love:
"Can't Buy Me Posts"
Can't buy Me Posts
Everybody tells me so
Can't Buy Me Posts
I'll buy you Diamond rings Zig if it'll make you feel all right
I'll Get You anything Zig if makes you feel all right
I don't care too much for anything else All I want is your posts
(repeat chorus)
Everyone else can live on money
But all I need Is your posts Zig
Without your posts Zig
I could never live
(Repeat chorus)
Fade out to repeated chant of We need you Zig
Please Don't laugh.

And My second attempt, written to the tune of She Loves You.
Note: This was written the day Before Zig's Birthday. To sing to anybody else, insert their name where you see Zig.
Again please don't laugh
Happy Birthday (Beatles Bible Edition)
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig Zig
Well it's your birthday today
And I only want to say<
That We wish you all the best
On your Special Day
So Happy Birthday
And have a great day
Cause there's no better way
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig Zig
So we all hope you have a ball
Just don't rent a dance hall
Cause if you do
We will find you
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig
Happy Birthday Zig Zig Zig
Happy Birthday To You Zig Zig Zig

OOOOOOOOOOOOOH.

The "Happy Birthday" thing was "She Loves You." You didn't mention it in the OP, so I couldn't make sense of it. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Paperback Poster(Paperback writter)

Dear Sir or Madam could you read my post

It`s a funny story of a funny man

and her wife doesn`t understand

His son is working for a daily mail

(Tune of She Came In Through The Bathroom Window)

And so he quit the daily mail

and got himself a not so steady job

Okay, Blue Nicey, here it is. I won't try to get all mine in one thread, but here is a new parody:
To the runs of Love Me Do, Here goes:
Oh, Why do you do
The things that you do?
You know it makes me mad
So please don't do it no more
I ask you sweetly,
I ask multiple times,
But I ask you again
Please don't do that no more
If you don't agree
The door is to your left
But I would strongly say
You might want to stay.

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

Yay! Glad I found this thread. I’ve been meaning to do a rewrite of “A Day In The Life.” Maybe now this will give me some motivation.

I wrote some Beatle poems... Though, those don't count. I'm just gonna watch out for the good rewrites.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

Really, I don't think I'll post as many any more. But, if you ever need a lyric or two, just ask.

@KaleidoscopeMusic, is this the type of thread you are looking for?

There have been many re-written songs all over the forum.

"based on a post by a man named Zig" - LOL, that was a good one.

I just thought I'd share with y'all my Hey Bulldog rewrite used in my calc study groups video. The movie itself is like a James Bond parody.

Limits, giving me the pains

Now it's, time for my refrains

There are so many ways to evaluate

But it's way easier than related rates

 

One way, is just to plug it in

But hey, other ways begin

Try to factor out the thing that makes it weird

Then all you troubles will have disappeared

 

Limits aren't so bad

Limits aren't so bad

Limits aren't so bad, not like things ahead of me

 

Now if, you get a funny form

Like its, something off the norm

Derive both the top and the underside

Then you'll be going on a happy ride

 

Limits aren't so bad

Limits aren't so bad

Limits aren't so bad, not like things ahead of me

 

It's incredibly horrible but considering I wrote it in like 5 minutes I'm proust.

EDIT: Proud not proust. My writing will never be that good

Discovered in a draw after Lennon's death, what appears to be the original lyrics to You Never Give Me Your Money, long rumoured to have been doctored by Paul to avoid the embarrassment of what appears to be an especially deranged acid trip description:

you never love my iguanas
you only tell me they're silly lizards
you always lecture me describing hazards
of reptiles

i never give you my walrus
you'd only lose it in a crowd of penguins
and in the middle of birds asking questions
i'd break down

out of bird-feed, walrus spent
saw no lizards, geckos, skinks
all the penguins gone, nowhere to go

did a gig for Mr Kite
dropped some sunshine, saw the light
yellow submarine then took me home

and oh i've lost my marbles
noone will know
oh my brains are scrambled
nowhere to go i'm a potato

salad cream
chop up the spuds
cook them in a tureen

soon we'll have a salad here
throw in some chook and mix it up real good

time to eat
munchies
are
great

munchies
are
great

munchies
are
great yes they are hahahahaha

1234567 all good lizards go to heaven
1234567 all good penguins go to heaven
1234567 all good kitties go to heaven

Inspired by the Beatles' off-key parody on their Third Christmas Record. 

Yesterday, this season seemed so far away, 
Now it looks as though it's here to stay, 
Oh I believe 'tis Christmasday. 

Suddenly, lights are winking at me merrily, 
There's a fir-tree hanging over me, 
Oh Christmasday came suddenly. 

Why it will not snow, 
I don't know, 
No one can say. 

I just wrote this song, 
now I long 
For Christmasday. 

Christmasday, all is merry and bright and gay, 
I have no excuse to hide away, 
Oh I believe 'tis Christmasday. 

(bridge x 1) (3rd verse x 1)
