The Lyrics

Kelp on Flounder

Gotta get lipids down; I've been feelin' light in the head.
They have reached scalar heights, and I've gained back all the weight I'd shed.

A friend said, "Flounder tastes fine,
Just sauté it in some nice white wine,
And you'll get help from flounder,
Help to give you a healthy heart.

(Om-om-om omega-3)

Help from flounder, help, help from flounder (7x)
Help from flounder, yeah, to get a healthy heart.

Well, I used to cook alewife
In a big lard-laced fryin' pan.

(No! No! No!)

Every time I'd fry, triglycerides shot sky high;
Ruined my diet plan.

(Ban that pan!)

Then wasabi caught my eye,
And I resolved never again to fry.
I now eat kelp on flounder,
Except head, scales, bones, offal parts.

(No head, scales, parts, bones-bones-bones)

Kelp on flounder, kelp wrapped 'round flounder (ad infinitum)
Kelp on flounder, yeah,
That's culinary art.

Seaweed is good, I like it --- and I like this parody, too. Good job, Cap'n.

Thanks, JD, for this and your soundings on my other floundering. Was thinking of the Alewife station at the end of the Red Line when I did this one. I'm off, coincidentally, to the north coast for a few days. Hope to bring back some flounder and a net full of tuners.

Sounds like you are floundering for parody material today! Liked them both, but this one left me a bit flat. :-)

Shameless plug: We flounder parodists must stick together! ;-)
