What could the name be.
Could we just go with
Alfy,
Darn Yankovics,
Weird Al and the Parody Factory,
etc...

(These names are all parodies.)

(Annie,
Damn Yankees,
Willy Wonka.)

That stuff belongs to Al. Maybe I'm missing something here. Are you meaning this to be something like a fan fiction, or is it to be a play that is actually on stage? Cuz if you're gonna have it performed, you'd need Al's approval to use use his copyrighted stuff. And no offense intended, but most of what you've written here is actually Al's stuff.

Actually, it'd be much cooler to see such a thing done in the style of George M.

That's not bad! It sort of reminds me of "Seinfeld" except with Al's music. I'd like to see just a little bit more original stuff though. Keep working on it! :D
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I want the following statement to be interpreted as constructive criticism and not insult, but this is basically a succession of random Al songs interrupted every once and a while by brief theatrical interlude. If in fact this is ever performed live, the audience will be expecting more original material on your part.

Ditto. There needs to be more speaking.

scottidog, the idea was to perform this, or just dream of performing it. Hey scottidog, why couldn't Al & TBITB (plus other actors of course) do it?

I suppose they could. They're all card carrying members of the Screen Actors Guild.

I certainly wasn't trying to be harsh, but Lightning7 did ask for our input.

I'm glad you said what you did.I had all ready thought of that.I was gonna send it to Al and ask for his permision and input and possiblely get him to right a reprise to the Weird Al show theme summing up the play to be sung in the Epologe.

Does anybody have any name ideas.

Here is alonger version of the play it has more scenes and in the later scenes it has more talking.

PROLOGUE:

NARRATOR: Oh, this is a story 'bout a guy named Al
And he lived in a sewer with his hamster pal
But the sanitation workers really didn't approve
So he packed up his accordion and had to move
To a city in Ohio where he lived in a tree
And he worked in a nasal decongestant factory
And he played on the company bowling team
And every single night he had a strange, recurring dream
Where he was wearing lederhosen in a vat of sour cream
But that's really not important to the story

Well, the very next year he met a dental hygenist
With a spatula tattoed on her arm (on her arm)
But he didn't keep in touch, then he lost her number
Then he got himself a job on a tater tot farm
And he spent his life savings on a split-level cave
20 miles below the surface of the Earth (of the Earth)
And he really makes a mighty fine jelly bean and pickle sandwich
For what it's worth

Then one day Al was in the forest, trying to get a tan
When he heard the tortured screaming of a funny little man
He was caught in a bear trap and Al set him free
And the guy that he rescued was grateful as can be
And it turns out he's a big-shot producer on TV
So he gave Al a contract and what do you know?
Now he's got his very own Weird Al Show!
(Blackout.)

SCENE ONE:
A CLUB

(AL and JOHN are sitting at a table on stage left.A bar is stage right.
MELANIE enters stage left and walks to the bar and sits on a stool.)

JOHN: Hey did you see the skelatal structure on her.

AL: Yeah.Don't rub it in.I could hardly keep of myself from drooling when I saw her move in to my building.

JOHN: Wait a minute.She lives in you aprartment building.

AL: No.Across the street.

JOHN:When did this happen.

AL:Today.

JOHN:You should buy her a drink.

AL: No.

JOHN:Come on.

AL:No.

JOHN:Come on I insist.Waitress

AL:No please.

JOHN:It's ok.

(The WAITRESS comes to the table.)

WAITRESS:Yes

JOHN:My friend wants to give that young lady at the bar a drink.

WAITRESS:What kind.

JOHN: Whatever she wants.

WAITRESS:OK

(She goes over to the bar and gives MELANIE a drink.MELANIE looks over at AL.)

JOHN:Go over there.

AL:No

JOHN:Yes.Come on.I'm not gonna leave you alone.

AL:Fine just so I can shut you up.

(AL get up.Music starts.He begins to walk sexyly.Every one starts to stare.JOHN covers his face.)

AL:I don't have a library card
But do you mind if I check you out?
I like your skeletal structure, baby
You're an ectomorph, no doubt
Your face is real symmetrical
And your nostrils are so nice
I wish that I was cross-eyed
So I could see you twice

Girl, you smell like Fritos
That's why I'm giving you this hungry stare
You're so hot, you're gonna melt
The elastic in my underwear
I'll bet you're magically delicious
Like a bowl of Lucky Charms
You'd look like Venus de Milo
If I just cut off your arms
What I'm tryin' to say is...

I wanna be your lover, baby
I need somebody to love
You know I just wanna be your lover, baby
Now I need somebody to love

Do you believe in love at fist sight
Or should I walk by again?
My love for you's like diarrhea
I just can't hold it in
Stop, drop and roll now
'Cause baby, you're on fire
I'll bet your outfit
Makes a lot of noise in the drier

You're absolutely perfect
Don't speak now, you might spoil it
Your eyes are even bluer
Than the water in my toilet
Say, has anyone ever told you
You've got Yugoslavian hands?
No, of course not, that would be stupid
Just forget I ever brought it up
The point I'm trying to make is...

I wanna be your lover, baby
I need somebody to love
You know I just wanna be your lover, baby
Now I need somebody to love

I wanna be your Krakatoa
Let my lava flow all over you
I wanna be your anaconda
And your heat-seeking missile too
I wanna be your beef burrito
Am I making this perfectly clear?
I wanna be your love torpedo
Are you picking up the subtle innuendo here?
Uh huh

I hope I'm not being forward
But do you mind if I chew on your butt?
You can tell me truthfully
Am I a steamin' hunk of love now, or what?
There just aren't enough o's in "smooth"
To describe how smooth I am
Maybe you've seen my picture
It's in the dictionary under "Kablaam!"
My lips are registered weapons
Can I invade your personal space?
You must have fallen from heaven
That would explain how you messed up your face
Well, how'd you get through security?
'Cause baby, you're the bomb
I'd like to take you home right now
So you can meet my mom
Because I...

I wanna be your lover, baby
I need somebody to love
You know I just wanna be your lover, baby
Now I need somebody to love

Girl, you must be Jamaican
Because Jamaican me crazy
Girl, you must be Jamaican
Because Jamaican me crazy

I wanna be your lover, baby
I need somebody to love
You know I just wanna be your lover, baby
Now I need somebody to love

(Everyone continues to stare.)

MELANIE:Ummm...I've got to go.

(MELANIE leaves AL alone.Blackout.)

SCENE TWO:
OUTSIDE AL'S APPARTMENT BUILDING

AL:I can't believe you made me do that.

JOHN.It wasen't to bad.

AL:Yes it was everybody laughed at me.

JOHN:No.They where at ummm.....sombody else.Yeah someone fell on the dance floor.

AL:It's ok John.I guess I'll just face the facts.I'm a disgusting huck of slime.

JOHN:No your not.

AL:Yes I'm.

JOHN:It's sounds like you've got the blues.Well we've all had them.I know I have.

(Music starts)

JOHN:I woke up this mornin',
Then I went back to bed.
Said I woke up this mornin',
Then I went right back to bed.
Got a funny kinda feelin',
Like I got broken glass in my underwear,
And a herd of wild pigs is tryin' to chew off my head.
You know what I'm sayin'?

Well, I ain't got no money,
I'm just walkin' down the road.
Said I ain't got no money, honey,
So I'm just walkin' down this lonely old road.
Well, I wish I could get me some money,
But I forgot my automated teller code.

I was born in a paper sack, in the bottom of a sewer.
I had to eat dirt clods for breakfast, my family was so poor,
My daddy was a waitress, my mama sold bathroom tile.
My brothers and sisters all hated me,'cause I was an only child.
I got the blues so bad.
Kinda wish I was dead.
Maybe I'll blow my brains out, mama.
Or maybe I'll, yeah, maybe I'll just go bowlin' instead.

I'm just a no-good, scum-sucking, nose-picking, boot-licking,
sniveling, groveling worthless hunk of slime.
Nothin' but a low-down, beer-bellied, bone-headed, pigeon-toed,
turkey-necked, weasel-faced worthless hunk of slime.
I guess I've got a pretty low self-image,
maybe it's a chemical imbalance or something.
I should probably go and see a doctor about it when I've got the time.

(A homeless man enters playing and electric guitar.)

JOHN:Aw, make it talk, son, make it talk.

Okay, now make it shut up.

Plagues and famine and pestilence always seem to get me down.
I always feel so miserable whenever I'm around.
I wish somebody would come along, stick a pitchfork through my brain.
I'd flush myself right down the toilet, but I'd just clog up the drain.
I got the blues so bad,
Kinda wish I was dead.
Maybe I'll blow my brains out, mama,
Or maybe I'll go bowling.
Or I just might go bowling.
Maybe I'll just rent some shoes and go bowling.
Maybe I'll join a league, enter a tournament,
put on a stupid-lookin' shirt and go bowling,
Instead.

(Blackout)


NARRATOR: Since cooking waffles dosen't pay very much Al is unable to buy a car.Therefor everyday day in and day out Al has to rise the bus.Being that he lives in a large middle-class residentual area the bus is always full and it creates quite a stressful invironment.
Scene Three:
ON A BUS


AL: Hi.

Bus Driver:Just get on pal.I gotta scedual to keep.

AL: Ok.Well.Have a nice day.

Bus Driver: Ok.Whateva.

(Al tries to find a seat but fails and so he stands in the back with the other seatless people.)

AL:Ridin' in a bus down the boulevard,
And the place was pretty packed.
Couldn't find a seat, so I had to stand,
With the perverts in the back.
It was smellin' like a locker room.
There was junk all over the floor.
We're already packed in like sardines,
But we're stoppin' to pick up more.
Look out!

chorus: Another one rides the bus-ah.
Another one rides the bus-ah.
And another comes on,
And another comes on.
Another one rides the bus-ah.
Hey!
He's gonna sit by you.
Another one rides the bus.

There's a suitcase pokin' me in the ribs.
There's an elbow in my ear.
There's a smelly old bum standin' next to me.
Hasn't showered in a year.
Well, I think I'm missin' a contact lens.
I think my wallet's gone.
And I think this bus is stoppin' again,
To let a couple more freaks get on.
Look out!

(chorus)

Another one rides the bus.
Another one rides the bus--ow!
Another one rides the bus--hey, hey!
Another one rides the bus--hey-y-y-y!

The window doesn't open, and the fan is broke,
And my face is turnin' blue.
I haven't been in a crowd like this
Since I went to see The Who.
Well, I should'a got off a couple miles ago,
But I couldn't get to the door.
There isn't any room for me to breathe.
Now we're gonna pick up more, yeah!

(chorus)

(Blackout)

NARRATOR:After have a horrible night and a even worse bus ride Al went to work.He just so happens tobe the star cook at The House of Waffles.he never lets his job and his personal life interfear with each other.And today it finally pays off.

WAITOR:Oh that would be Al.

MR. ANDERSON: Is this true.

AL: It took a lifetime, but I finally found
The perfect waffle recipe
