"Beavers On A Jet Plane"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I chose Peter Paul And Mary's version (which is quite different from John Denver's original) because I'm entering it in a "folk" comp - this is a logical progression from Snakes On A Plane......throughout history snakes and beavers have always had some sort of connexion..............(listen to the OS here)

I am flat gobsmacked
well how could I know?
that they'd hi-jacked
the whole jumbo
I can't believe this scene before my eyes

there's a hundred beavers
(a few are shorn)
pilot's coming
(he's blowing his horn)
he welcomes me to "Beaver-Friendly Skies"

They're cute and...they smile at me
seems that they like what they see
seems that they're impressed I'm fully grown
there's beavers on this jet plane
think I'll get off......(if I remain)
whoa now...

there's so many beavers
end to end
so many neat and
furry friends
It's such a warm...fuzzy atmosphere

every first class seat
is beaver-lined
everyone I meet's
the beaver kind
it looks like I'm the one non-beaver here

There must be...'bout ninety-three
beavers winking up at me
like an episode of "Lost" uncut
there's beavers on this jet plane
soon they'll be in the bush again
but now...
care for a nut?

Not much time left
in the blue sky
As the plane
d'scends so do I
to feast on these...beaverish...delights

Shortly I
am all touched-down
So goodbye
to all that brown
muff, whoops fluff....(got to get that right)

wink a fond farewell
reassure me they won't tell
what takes place on planes stays on the plane
the beavers on this jet plane
were not conducive to restraint
beavers on this jet plane
bus-i-ly conquered my terrain
beavers on this jet plane
I feel like Hef on mary jane


for this....jumbo

Gee,Wally! Uhh Stu! LOL this is awesome 555! Is Jerry Mathers the pilot? and I also cant believe its not SNAKES on a Jet Plane, but this still great 555! (They better have Leave It to Beaver down there cause thats a really good joke I just made, Snakes on a Plane too)

As subtle as a Michael Jackson slumber party, Stu....but terrifically funny! Gotta love them beavers.....;-) 555

Not a mention of your wood? Everybody knows that's what beavers like, not nuts....... Silly Stu

i'd definitely pay to see THIS one

I wasn't expecting anything so laced with double-entendres when I read the title. Lots of great lines, but "soon they'll be in the bush again but for a nut?" made me laugh, for real. Coming soon to an adult video store near you! 555.

Don't mind being dammed in by these beavers! 555

Sorry Red Ant, I have no idea what you are inferring here.....(hehe) 555, Stu.

More than one kind of Beaver...but, there's definitely nothing flat about this tale..
Stuart McArthur - December 04, 2006 - Report this comment
thanks Jack - yes we had Leave it to Beaver (unfortunate nickname) - and I should have tried to purt Jerry in there, but the circumstances were just so unJerry-like ;-)

thanks Kristof - "subtle" is kinder than my wife's description "crass", so I'm starting to claw back!

d'oh! Matthias, "wood" WOULD have been better - wish I'd thought of it!

thanks JAB and alvin :-)

thanks Jack - yes you'll find it in the Squirrels section

thanks yoidy, Agri and AFW :-)

LOL Squirrels Gone Wild?
Stuart McArthur - December 04, 2006 - Report this comment
yes, in between that and "When Squirrels Attack"

Hef on mary jane? lol Even Hef woulda' had fun on this Beaver-infested jet, what with a few of them shorn and all. Bald beavers don't have to be old :-) Or balled beavers, for that matter. Dam those beavers! I'll shut up now. Big beaver-toothed 5's

"Dam those Beavers" - lol - thanks Dee :-)

(Decathlon - Event 9) I expected at least ONE of the animal parodies to be NICE...but oh no, it's all pain and disgust and killing and double entendrees...I love it! Brilliant job, Stu!

(DEC9) See above...Viva la Beaver!!!

(DEC) Would that sound similar to "Qantas" Airlines, mate?

Arwen - January 03, 2007 - Report this comment's well paced, I'll give you that....and well crafted, considering what I know you were trying to do...(and you did it!)...but not so funny to me. I still gave you 5s though...

Thought I'd commented here already: must have skipped it 'cause Jack made the joke I was about to in the first comment :-( Anyway, another excellent McArthur missive, Stu :-)
