The Lyrics

Shoppin' for bread spreads
Makes one need calm meds
So many choices..boggle the brain
Land o Lakes looks smooth,
Blue Bonnet's got groove..
"I can't believe it's not butter"..insane!

Wond'rin' away again in Margarine-a-ville
Which contains low so-dium, less salt?
Each one will claim
They've got a better brand name
Who's to know..when to choose and halt?

Could grab Blue Bonnet
But do I really want it?
Stocked lots of Fleishman', must be okay
You're heart smart with Promise,
The slogan that dramas..
Elf on the shelf says, go peek at Parkay..

Stressed out and played again in Margarine-a-ville
This comes in squares, that's creamy like malt
I could pick light,
Or is the heavier right?
Who's to know..which one would default?

Oh well, there's O'dell,
Heard Willow Run's swell
Is Country Crock like..last half of it's name?
Should I shift to Chiffon
Before I am poofed on,
As vengeance for foolin' with Mom Nature's game..

Shoppin' away again in Margarine-a-ville
Fuzz's the mind. makes feet feel like lead
There's just too much hype,
So I revolt with a gripe,
Move to next aisle, the high priced spread

Move to next the high priced spread

Funny version of the original song. Margerine has come a long way since the day when it was sold as that white mass with the orange dot of dye that one had to knead.

HA! Great job AFW. This one read so close to the original that, "I Can't Believe It's Not Buffett". 555

Churning tale that just gets butter with time. Great imagination went into this one and it reads extremely well if one enunciates margerine as margar-een, which I did and I could almost believe it was butter. Loved the "last half" of the Country Crock line. That line made me LOL. Yep, this one is slick.
