The Lyrics

youtube


In THE GODFATHER PART II, gangster Virgil Solozzo tries to make a deal with Michael Corleone in a secluded Italian restaurant (after having unsuccessfully tried to assassinate his father Don Corleone) while Solozzo's bodyguard, crooked NYPD Captain McCluskey, gorges himself on veal. Meanwhile, Michael plans at some point to excuse himself to go to the bathroom, where waits a hidden gun with which he can kill Solozzo and McCluskey.

(Virgil Solozzo, to McCluskey)

I know there's dessert
It goes with the deal
And oh, while we're here
You must try the veal

I'm going to talk
In Italian to Mike
I'll offer a deal
I know that he'll like

(Captain McCluskey)

The veal is not enough
But it is such a tasty dish to start, my lunch
And if it isn't tough
I'll order some to take home a la carte, for Bunch

(Virgil Solozzo, to Michael)

People buy drugs
Which we can supply
But Don Corleone
Only wants to deny

I know that we missed
While attempting to kill
Though we turned him to Swiss
His "no" echoes still

(Captain McCluskey)

The veal is not enough
But in this city it's the best I've found, for chow
So while you huff and puff
What you don't eat I'll take home for my hound, bow wow

(Michael Corleone, to Solozzo)

I feel strange
I feel primed
I feel certain
That it's pee-pee time

(Captain McCluskey)

The veal is not enough
The kid is clean--I frisked him in the car, for guns
So let him do his stuff
While he's away I'll eat his steak tartar, on buns

The veal is not enough
Conceal, no way, no bluff
He kneeled, I frisked his stuff
More veal, it's not enough

Yeah, it was GODFATHER I, not II. I don't know what got into me, making a mistake like that. I saw this movie in the theater when it was new!

So, back from your va-cay, Porf-ay? Hope all is well

Thanks, Rob! My DVD reviews and other stuff started piling up so I had to cut back on my AIR time. This place is too addictive.
Rob Arndt - September 24, 2012 - Report this comment
Hey Porfle, have you seen "God Bless America" yet??? It's a blend of "Deathwish" and "Falling Down"!!! Also, the new "Dredd" movie is awesome- hard R and no apologies! No Stallone nor Schneider jokes and Urban keeps the helmet on at all times :)

Those sound pretty good, maybe they'll send them to me! I never even watched Stallone's version of "Dredd."

Was the veal garnished with artichokes?
Porfle Popnecker - October 01, 2012 - Report this comment
AFW--thanks! Meriadoc--yes, it was garnished with the same artichokes McCluskey found on Michael when he frisked him.

I see it now, in lights-"Corleone! A New Musical!" Have my girl call your girl, we'll get it greenlit by next fall. Is Hugh Jackman available?

I cannot refuse to enjoy this parody. They should retrofit this into the movie.

Thanks for the comments!

I didn't realize that the opening credits to a Bond movie were done by this band. That's pretty cool just like this parody and the Godfather! All of these things (just like the veal) are extremely well done.

(Artistry) Huh. A parody of a James Bond theme about a scene from the Godfather. Makes sense to me. I'm glad you put a synopsis of the scene in question at the top, otherwise this parody would've gone completely over my head (I haven't seen any of the Godfather movies). Great parody, I especially liked the obliviousness of the veal-eating guy. 555!

@Matthias--thanks, yeah they did a good job coming up with a James Bond song. @bob--he really was oblivious, too! It's one of my favorite movie scenes. Hope you get a chance to watch it one of these days.

I've never seen Godfather believe it or not. . .but nonetheless the parody worked.

(Artistry) Love Godfather, Love James Bond, not a fan of the OS, but enjoyed the parody.
