The Beatles

Parody Song Title:

"Something In The Gravy Moved"

Parody Written by:

Stuart McArthur

The Lyrics

Something in the gravy moved!
It had coarse hair and looked like leather
Something in the gravy's moving
It looks like a piece of cow
that should be deceased by now

Something just emerged for air
a thing unusual, sub-gravy
Something found its way in there-ere
I'll need some persuading, ma'am
to pour it on my roast lamb

You're asking me where did it go
I don't know
I don't know
Just stick around and it might show
up, and...Whoa!
THERE IT GOES!

Somehow I've gone off my food
guess I prefer my dinner lifeless
Gravy shouldn't need to be chew-ewed
and so ma'am I'll call it quits
Bye gravy - and your bits

There goes my appetite for the evening, just as well, with all these upcoming Christmas dinner parties etc.

Good flow (to the song, that is) and awesome title. What does 'and your bits' mean?
Red Ant - December 06, 2005 - Report this comment
I'm going to be closely eyeing my gravy this year, lol. 555

Mmmm, and me without a spoon! This was delicious, if moving. 555

yes, AFW, now you mention it, it DID look like Messie the Crock Mess Monster - thanks

thanks alvin, John, and Rick :-)

thanks Peter - better an upcoming Xmas party than an upchucking chunk of live gravy

thanks 2nz - yes, it was a bit ambiguous - I meant "Goodbye gravy, and goodbye to all your bits contained therein"

thanks Jack (hopefully it won't be eyeing you back)

thanks Mason - a net might be more useful

Very good, Stuart, especially "piece of cow/deceased by now."
Arwen - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Very funny. It's a bit late, and I seem to have lost my clever commenting skills...but this honestly made me giggle. That's the best I can do. Nice work, Stuart.
Larry Hensley - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
I was laughing a lot at this one.
Stuart McArthur - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks JJ

don't apologise Arwen - the needle on your "clever/unclever" commenting metre has been deep into the clever zone for so long now, an occasional lapse won't do any harm ;-)

thanks Larry - although I take it that's laughing AT me...

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, ruining my favorite meal, that's just wrong =) (PS: Found and drank a 6-pack of Stella, that's good stuff!)
stuart mcarthur - December 07, 2005 - Report this comment
darn tootin' it is, Jeff - it's even better straight out of the tap into a chilled glass, where it clings to the walls and becomes one with the glass - mmm, can't wait for breakfast...

I'm having second thoughts about that dinner invitation, Stu....funny, funny stuff! 555

LMAO! I'll be straining the gravy from now on. Top shelf 5's

I will never eat gravy again! 555

SOTM - What? It's still moving? (Already commented).
Spaff.com - January 22, 2006 - Report this comment
Great title, s2art, and excellent execution. "Piece of cow/deceased by now" is a world-class couplet.

By the way, Silver Power doesn't like the Beatles? Seriously? Is it actually possible for someone to NOT like the Beatles? Really? That's like not liking chocolate. Or sunlight. I wouldn't go around admitting it.

SOTM - Good thing I ate already.. yecch. ;-)
Red Ant - January 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above. I was thinking about this parody during Christmas dinner. The gravy didn't move because it was salted to death! I agree, dinner should be thoroughly dead before consumption. "Something just emerged for air" was just one of many clever 'subs' threw-out!

Love the title, and wish the OS was longer. Well, sort of. I've always thought of this as one of the slowest, most boring Beatles songs. Plus I hate sunlight. Anyway, very funny.

(SOTM) This gets my "wish-I'd-thought-of-it-first" award!

(SOTM) It's hard to tell a funny story with such a short OS, but good job at doing so.
