A Musical Joke (Not Mozart's)

Ted Barlow mentions the BeeGees' "inimitable all-castrato close harmony". That reminds me of a parody of the Beach Boys' "Wouldn't It Be Nice" that one of my college classmates used to sing thirty years ago. All I can remember is the first two lines -- there may not have been any more. Cue falsetto harmonies:

Wouldn't it be nice if we had testes,
so we wouldn't have to sing this way?

Have you ever heard "The Gypsy Cried" by Lou Christie? It sounds like he's being castrated mid-song.
