Oh Quagmire

From the episode: Back to the Woods
Singers: Barry Manilow
Voices: Barry Manilow

"Quagmire" is an improvised song by Barry Manilow. Peter Griffin, Glenn Quagmire, Joe Swanson and Cleveland Brown go to a Manilow concert at the beginning of "Back to the Woods". While looking for someone in the audience with a two syllable name, Manilow picks Quagmire and sings a slightly homoerotic version of his hit song "Mandy".

The basis, "Mandy", was among the songs mentioned by Brian as a song named after a girl in "Ocean's Three and a Half".


Barry Manilow: The night goes in to morning just another day

Happy people pass my way looking in their eyes

I see a memory and I never realized how happy you made me oh Quagmire,

well you came and you gave without taking.

Quagmire: I would never take from you, Barry.

Barry Manilow: But I sent you away oh Quagmire, you kissed me and stopped me from shaking, and I need you today oh Quagmire.
