"My Least Fav'rite Things"

Parody Written by:

Brad Snyder

The Lyrics

Hopefully you've all seen The Sound of Music, or at least heard this song. It's simple, but well written (the original, I mean). I cut a syllable out of Favorite (Fav'rite) because the original song uses all three syllables of the word. With "My" added to "Fav'rite", well, that's three! Hope you like.
(from the musical film "Some Found Amusing")

Anything green that they say is good for you.
Gelatin, sherbet, plain yogurt and tofu.
Guts of tomatoes and celery strings.
Thus starts the list of my least fav'rite things.

Stuff that you pay for, but you never ordered.
On-Demand reruns that you can't fast forward.
Doors that still squeak, after oiling that hinge.
We've just begun with my least fav'rite things.

Rap that blasts through a teen's open car window.
"Your call's important, so please, wait in limbo."
Grown kids at home, and the grief that it brings.
Moving along with my least fav'rite things.

Words like “precious”, and “delicious”.
Oh, yeah - “hanging chad”.
It's hard to forget I don't like many things,
Which makes me feel al...most bad.

Cars that do things for you without your asking.
Anyone saying they love multitasking.
iPhones with all of those creative rings.
Hope you're enjoying my least fav'rite things

Bad TV shows that run too many seasons.
"Firefly" canceled, for...who cares what reasons!
Programs where everyone dances or sings.
Here come the last of my least fav'rite things.

Fresh burnt popcorn, sinks that spray you,
Paisley (no, not Brad).
Been fun sharing some of my least fav'rite things.
And maybe it made...you laugh.

My new least un-fav-rite parody author.

This probably wont get the response it deserves, because there were a lot of good works submitted today. (One of the best days for Amiright in a dog's age, IMHO) But this is top of the chart stuff. You really need to put down at least ten works, because then you'll have a song index and a link

BTW, the ol' "cut out a syllable with a dash to match the syllable count" is a trick we all use from time to time

Thanks, people (both of you). Agrimorfee, really nice comment, using the parody title as a double negative, equalling a very positive review...and only six words long! CML, always an encouraging, straightforward response from you. I agree, there’s an especially high volume of submissions today, at least since I’ve been sending stuff in. Appreciate your mentioning there may not be many comments because of that. I’ll value each one. Hey, two more submissions and I get my merit badge! Uh, I mean, I get an index! Thanks again, fellow parodists. I’m smiling this morning (at least until I get to work).

Agreed; this is quite good and especially liked the line about cars doing things without your asking; I hate that crap
JAB - February 16, 2018 - Report this comment
Right on, Brad!

Thanks for the positive review, Claude. I don’t know how close I’ve come sometimes to leaving my keys on the seat, and the car locking the door behind me. A couple of times I’ve had to run back to the car to make sure it doesn’t lock itself before I can get my keys out. Boo! But yay for your review.

This was a riot! I agree with you on a lot of these things especially canceling “Firefly”. Sad to see you missed out on a OWN week it was fun having you join us. Hope you’ll be back this week with you own unique take on “This Is Me”.

I've been trying to think of a good parody of this song and never quite succeeded. You've don a great job. Just finished reading an article about uncontrollable new cars that think and accelerate for themselves. Never saw "Firefly" but was a big fan of the too-soon cancelled "Jericho". Spend a lot of time in a neighborhood where blasting rap "music" is an auditory hazard. Looking forward to your next submissions.

Matthias - Thanks for the kudos (I don’t know what kudos are, but I still appreciate them). Yeah, Firefly was...is...a great show. Serenity gave us a pretty decent farewell. It’s some consolation that most of the “crew” got other great roles, especially Nathan Fillion. And Jericho was also pretty great! I have both seasons. They tied it up pretty quick, due to the impending cancellation, but at least they did. I am looking seriously at spoofing “This is Me”, but man, those show tunes are tough - so dramatic. And the chorus often repeats a ton! Personally, I like to come up with something different for each chorus. Sometimes it works to repeat it, but for me, that’s an exception. Thanks for asking.

Thanks Patrick. YOU were the one that mentioned Jericho. My apologies to you, and to Matthias. Really need to re-read comments prior to responding. The positive things you guys said must’ve distracted me. Yeah...okay...ANYway, all the stuff in the parody, except for the line about grown kids (don’t have kids, grown or otherwise), I have dealt with personally. And though I’ve never met Brad Paisley, he’s a really good lyric writer, and his guitar work is awesome (I dabble with the playing of the guitar m’self). It IS clear that Mr. Paisley is NOT one of my least fav’rite things, right? Anyway, I enjoyed reading your comments about the “smart” cars, and the inconsiderate use of rap. Ah, the rap. My thoughts on that subject are: YOU like it, no problem. YOU listen to it. If you make ME listen to it, I’ll be forced to “share” my Brad Paisley “PLAY” album (all instrumental country electric guitar) with YOU, turned up to 11! Yee-haw! (thanks again, Patrick)

Whoo-hoo! 1-star again. On a roll.

This has been said on another one of yours, but I will say it here, too-- 1-bombers do this out of sheer a******ry. Disregard them. Continue to do what you do, and only take the positive criticism to heart (of which, I don't believe there's anything to criticize about your work)
Brad Snyder - February 21, 2018 - Report this comment
Thanks man. I was a liitle disheartened, but you’re right. This isn’t worth making a big deal over. Like I said, amiright is a great community, and I glad to be a part of it. Moving on.
