The Lyrics

Where are the nachos I wanted the most?
Who gave me champagne? I want Pepsi to toast
Can't see any Cheese Nips, that's so wrong
And for creamy bean dip how I long
I see no point in carryin' on

I didn't come here for a stuffed to-ma-to
There's no one in line for the Hummus, you know
I see you've got crackers, well that's fine
But why are they topped with sprigs of pine?
There's just no point in carryin' on

And you're serving Pa-te
That's makin' me gag
I want some Do-RI-tos, ya white collar hag!
You say "Es-car-got
Is just where it's at!"
But I'd rather share Friskies, dry, with my cat!
You made some Pa-te
And stuff I don't like
It's makin' me frown, so I really must strike
Against your Pa-te
Disgusting Pa-te

A party on Super Bowl Sunday
Without any fresh guac-UH-mol-ay?
I see no point in carryin' on!

Cause you got Pa-te
And black cav-i-ar
That tastes just like ROAD-kill from off o' my car
Just want a ta-co
And salsa with kick
You steamed some asparagus, you arrogant prick
What's with the Pa-te?
You're losing your friends
And ev'ryone just wants the evening to end
Because of Pa-te

(Oooh…hate pa-te)

You could've iced some pop in the sink
Bought some chips with-a cool ranch dip
And made folks so much HAPP-i-er, oh
Than they are with this "Eggplant Whip"
It's such a gyp…


So bring on the pork rinds and the pizza with cheese
Or chili fries
How I'd love a hot dog and onion rings please

Would you toss the Pa-te?
Yeah, just throw it out
These fancy hors-d'oeuvres are all makin' me pout
I'm ready to go
I'm grabbin' my purse
McDonald's might kill me but this stuff is worse
I won't eat Pa-te
Not one single bite!
I'm sorry you feel I'm not po-lite
But blame the Pa-te
The awful Pa-te

Aw yeah…hate the Pa-te
Aw-ooo-eeww…rotten Pa-te

(Fade to end)

So a few years back, my Grandma served hors d'oeuvres (I think that's how it's spelled) before a holiday dinner. And she said, "They talk." We didn't believe her. She said, "Egg salad, speak!" And the egg salad said, "Hi! I'm Grace's egg salad. I'm delicious." And the pate said, "What am I, chopped liver?" Thought you'd appreciate that. Who knew the Princess prefers to eat like the common man! I say, let us all eat cake! Especially with lots of frosting! And, of course, FIVE layers!

I love the McDonald's line.
Below Average Dave - February 08, 2007 - Report this comment
"McDonald's might kill me but this stuff is worse" was the best line in the song. . .but I like the comment on Pizza and Pork Rinds too, oh and nice touch with "You steamed some asparagus, you arrogant prick"

ha - together (going by our submissions today) you and I have pretty much lampooned all French delicacies, Arwen - the perfect line was "McDonald's might kill me but this stuff is worse" - and your spelling of pate as pa-te really emphasises the spit-out-edness of the stuff - 555

I enjoyed this Pa-te Partay! 555 :-)

Gavin...thanks very much!

Jack...thank you, I appreciate it!

Michael...I'm not going to lie...I started your comment with a "where is he going with this?" look on my face...but then, sure enough, you got me...(but I'm sure you knew you would) Nice one. =) say that like you weren't in love before. We both know that isn't true...

Alvin...well, I did sneak into your brain for my menu ideas...; )

Yoidy...=) Thanks!

Ann...thanks a's one of my favorites, too!

Below Average Dave...thanks very much. The McDonald's line sort of clotheslined me...came out of nowhere, but I loved I'm glad it was a hit. =)

Stuart...who would have thought that you and I would be on the same wavelength on the same day...from opposite sides of the world? And, of all things, about French food? Odd...but not so bad...=) Thanks!

Rick C...hooray! I'm glad! Thanks!

Show of hands, how many thought the song title was supposed to rhyme with "date"? Hehe, seriously good job here, a song about a food that hasn't been examined by anyone else.
Arwen - February 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Agri...I really worried about that, honestly. I wanted to be able to put the official accent over the "e" but couldn't figure out how to do it. Thankfully you were able to figure it out! ; ) Thanks!
Jack Wilson - February 09, 2007 - Report this comment
LOL Agri,I thought that for a while,then as I got more into tthe song I figured it out. This might be one of my fav parodies for this song "I want some Doritos ya white collar hag!" LOL
Agrimorfee - February 12, 2007 - Report this comment
If I think people will have a hard time figuring out the pronunciation without a proper accent, I type the word plus the phonetic pronunciation next to it in [brackets]. I did this when I used the word lame [la-may]. :)

Excellent parody, Arwen! I probably haven't stopped by one of your parodies in a while, but as I always say, better late than never!! Let me vote 5-5-5 on it.

And in response to your comment about the accent over the "e": hold down the "alt" key, type "0233" on the numeric keypad (on the right hand side of your keyboard), and then release alt. Then the é character should appear in your text at the insertion point. Make sure the "num lock" is on first!

This is an interesting parody... I think I just might follow suit and give it another perfect score.

I know it's pronounced pat-TAY too. Good work, 5s
