New Lyrics for Hits From the '60s and '70s

Some of the artists of the 1960s and 1970s are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers. These include:

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?'
Bobby Darin-- 'Splish Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash'
Roberta Flack-- 'The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face'
Johnny Nash-- 'I Can't See So Clearly Now'
Paul Simon-- 'Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver'
The Commodores-- 'Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom'
Marvin Gaye-- 'I Heard It Through the Grape Nuts'
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 and Dawn-- 'Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall'[1]
Helen Reddy-- 'I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore'
Willie Nelson-- 'On the Commode Again,' and my favorite,
Leslie Gore-- 'It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To.'

I don't think Bobby Darin or Marvin Gaye will be doing any revising...
