"I Viewed Gnu in That Blue Pinto"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Note: Bovidae is pronounced BOH-ve-DIE
I viewed gnu in that blue Pinto
Rejected cramped and style-less room
Ka-pow, he bucked and broke the window
And he ran off to find bamboo

Couldn’t anybody tell him
“It’s a bit of folly, G.
Bamboo’s not in fields here, hombre
No chews in the fields near ye.”

He said “I used to know a Prancer.
He flew with bearded Claus for pay.”
And this gnu, our language mastered
For he talked but he would not bray.

And so I called the zoo department
“I need some help with bovidae*.”
And lady said “Does he know Prancer?
If he does, Prancer here says hi.”

Did a jolly fellow tell her
Or a little elf had seen?
Maybe the gnu was sending
Message through telepathy.
Oh yeah.
*the gnu is a member of the Bovidae animal family.
The Blogging Baker.

Unique story

Great parody. I can actually hear Frampton singing this! He covered the OS pretty well at one point.

Thanks, AFW. I was shooting for something stream of consciousness.
And thanks, Mare. I've never heard the Frampton version, so I need to check it out.

Why, this dadgum story's just downright preposterous.

No animals were harmed in this preposterousness.

Fun parody, and many other hoofed animals besides gnu and cattle are Bovidae. Sheep, African antelopes, goats and elands, to name a few. I remember my blue Pinto, Smurf blue wagon with a white vinyl interior and yellow tailgate. It was a piece of junk that I got at a storage unit auction for $125 in 2003 and parked across the front gate of a towing lot with a signed title transfer slip under the windshield wiper 3 weeks later. Still laughing my arse off, and here are your 5s.

Thanks, Andria. A yellow tailgate on a Smurf blue Pinto? Talking about standing out in a crowd...yikes!
