"Pure Nonsense"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Inspired by Red Ant's parody, of the same OS, also about the unintelligible quality of many of Enya's songs. All but the last four stanzas are intended to be interpretations of the OS lyrics, those last four stanzas emphasize that many people cannot understand what Enya is singing about in most if not all of her songs. None of the parody save the last four stanzas is intended to make a bit of sense.

Disclaimer: I am a great fan of Enya's music, and have almost al of her CDs, so the last four stanzas are not autobiographical by any means.
*chyme: pronounced "kime", rhyming with "lime", a name for partially digested stomach contents.
Chimpanzee broke old Mork’s toes,
Windy bagels, coney time?
Band 2 don’t go on a duck’s nose,
Molten lava, salt and lime?

Tin cans thrown into rivers,
Bit by black flies, spewing chyme*
Now why walk fast and then go run slow
Eatin’ plum pies, gorgin’ time?

Don’t you eat none that rat meat,
That rat meat might be… in Big Macs
Now who wants to sit on thumbtacks?
And then gorge on pickled beets?
Right now, let wet fart

Now let’s chug past-date clam juice,
From my pocket, dropped a dime
And who can understand Enya?
No one I know, at this time

Enya? Greek to me!
Enya? Sings Gaelic!

New Age music ain't my cup of tea, but this parody is.

Oops... realized that Ant's parody of a similar nature to this wasn't of the same OS but was still an Enya song. Think I got mixed up with Agrimorfee's Frankenstein parody. :-)

I like Enya too, and thought this parody was awesome. Who can write spoofs of Enya? Get you in awe? Andria
Andria - March 19, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks, Phil. LOL at the partial parody! :-)

I also am an Enya fan, too! I have her box CD called "Only Time: The Collection" has most of my fave songs in it, except for "Only If". I just listened to "Bodicea" earlier, but now I'm listening to one of my favorites called "Cursum Perficio". She has a voice of an angel when she sings whether it be Latin, or Gaelic. Yeah, sometimes I couldn't quite place her lyrics. 555's for this no-nonsense written parody!! Great as always!

Thanks, Christie. I'm going to have to get that box set soon. Right now, I'm listening to Disc 1 of "The Essential Willie Nelson".

I have a couple of Enya CD's - Ramble on, Andria

Thanks, t1k. Are you Timmy1000 under an abbreviated username? Haven't seen him around in a while.

Yes, I am. I got lazy and started using the abbreviation for comments. I've only submitted 4 parodies this year, but have read and commented on a number of them until late February. I was without internet much of the time while away from home for a few weeks too.

Hehe! I like Enya's music too but agree she can be a bit unintelligible! Lots of funny lines here, and I especially like the first two; I imagine a chimp breaking a monk's toes by throwing bagels at him. Maybe covered in ice cream...

(ABC) It made juse as much 'wonderful" nonsense as it did on my first read! LOL
Matthias - August 20, 2010 - Report this comment
It saddens me that Red Ant has read this one yet because it was his parody that sparked this one I'm betting. Well done following in his footsteps with another random song by Enya.

This one was hard to follow to TOS for me. . .don't know, like the idea though
Abbott Skelding - August 28, 2010 - Report this comment
I like the idea, never would have thought of it. 555 more possible topics the OS could be about lol

A good old-fashioned random parody, deserves a few reads to digest the nuggets of weirdness. Nice job!

(ABC5) I can always appreciate a parody made of pure gibberish, whether it's on purpose or not. 555 for you purple monkey dishwasher.
DJ Blaze - September 06, 2010 - Report this comment
Gotta love nonsense, it comes out of my mouth all the time. BTW, great parody, Enya is very hard to understand. 555

After writing about BAD's whacky lines in his song I read this next :-) Really funny strange things fit in her randomly, I enjoyed.
