Parody Song Title:

"The Chihuahua"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

In seven days, God made the earth, the stars, and the chihuahua. I don't have a problem with the first two....
I procreate on wintry nights
and tolerate the insect bites
that you invented

and when I'm stuck in traffic jams
I pray to you, but never have
you intercepted

And furthermore I don't have bones
to pick regarding volcanoes
and lava

so why'd you have to conjure up
that highly-strung microbe called a
chihuahua?

I can see it in their eyes that they despise all things more sizey than
a cab-bage
In animal psychiatry they'd readily surmise that they
have bag-gage

I've always said "Preposterous!"
when fools say we've evolved from grubs
as Darwin has claimed

(I only write "preposterous"
because it might get compliments
from Arwen again)

I always frown when people say
you should come down on Jews and gays
much hard-er

yet still you won't do nothing 'bout
those seemingly turned-inside-out
chihuahuas

they somehow don't have facial hair - no wonder they look like they wear
mascara
apart from testing nooses, there just aint no better use for the
chihuahau

chihuahua
chihuahua
chihuahua
chihuahua

(so stop them reproducing please - because there aint no use for the chihuahua)

Ha! My stream of consciousness as I read this: "Oh he ONLY used that word because I told him it's on my list of favorite words!"

(I only write "preposterous"

Ooooh...well at least you're honest. ; ) Nicely written, but we're still in a fight...just in case you were wondering.

So very clever that I just had to immediately pop open up my man-purse and sing it to Poopsie, who, needless to say, chluffed so hard her 'mascara' ran! 5 woofies!

Damn Good stuff as allways, keep it up!! 555
Stuart McArthur - August 18, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks TJC - "pop open my man-purse" lost me, unless that's where you keep your noose, and that, hopefully, "sing it to" is your local dialect for "strangle" ;-)

good on you, Spoof-Man - thanks

I had a feeling that you might just use this OS for the comp, Stu...after the riot that was "Cactus". This, needless to say, has a cornucopia of LOL lines, my faves being:
I always frown when people say
you should come down on Jews and gays
much hard-er

yet still you won't do nothing 'bout
those seemingly turned-inside-out
chihuahuas
A much-bigger-than-the-mutt set of 5s!
Stuart McArthur - August 19, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks KR - yes this (as I've stated before on the MB) is actually my favourite OS to parody, and is always the first OS I think of when I have to come up with something, although it's only the third time I've parodied it on amiright (trying not to overuse it) - it has a nice dry eyebrows-raised rhythm, conducive to satire, imho :-)

excellent stuff Stu...are you personally acquainted with one of these creatures ir is it just pure prejudice??
Red Ant - August 19, 2006 - Report this comment

back again - just realised my shih tzu is a hippy Chihuahua
bobpiecheese - September 07, 2006 - Report this comment
(Decathlon - Event 2) When I found an mp3 of the OS (as I usually have to do for parody competitions), I thought 'this sounds familiar'. Then when I heard the main bit, I realized that part of it was used in the Simpsons episode, "Black Widower". Still, classic parody, and you're right: Darwin is a fool.

(Artistry) Everyone knows that the Chihuahua was created to give Taco Bell a mascot (and a source of fajita meat). Funny stuff.

DKTOS, but you really hate chihuahua's, doncha? For your ability to put that into words- that by itself already gets 555. I gotta do DL this song so I can be in on the joke... Great read, man!
Red Ant - July 28, 2007 - Report this comment
I remember reading this before, and still very funny, though (warning: possible fightin' words to follow!!!) having listened to the OS I had a very difficult time getting this to scan to it, which is highly unusual since A) Your pacing is almost always spot on, especially with your latter works (i.e., anything after about your first 10 or so parodies) and B) You said this is your favorite song to parody, and it's extremely unlikely you'd mess it up at all. So, in conclusion, I can only surmise I'm reading this funky or the YouTube clip has different lyrics/tempo than TOS. =) PS - Just got back from VA Beach today, and my family there has a chihuahua... yes, it was useless (except as a heated armrest), and yes, I called it "rat-dog" to its face several times.
stuart mcarthur - July 31, 2007 - Report this comment
you're exactly right Jack - I didn't bother reading this to the OS playing like I normally do, because I know the tune and my other parodies of this OS so well, most of which I wrote long before I realised Amiright's strict syllabic approach - I just wrote it for the easy read, so there are bound to be pacing quirks

Very good except that some of the lines were tough to pace .. . .so there are some pacing issues, but it was still very funny.
