The Lyrics

When the time came for me to write a Reel Big Fish parody, the title sub leaped out at me - I'm just thankful this song has only been done once before! Otherwise it would've already been taken. most likely.
Well, I know I'll die if I eat fast
Food for life
'So don't order pizza tonight' she said
But it's too late

I don't care what's in burger bread
I could care less what Atkins says*
To me it doesn't matter
So now I will get fatter, that's for sure!

So I have breakfast at the Macca's store
Hash brown and pancakes, extra honey
The check-out chick says I should try their meal
She makes it sound good, guess I'll just have to eat it!

Take-out! Some Chinese food
Take-out! Whatever's good
I really couldn't care if they charge me lots of money
It's worth it if the food tastes all right!

Yes, I know that burgers aren't healthy, they'll make me fat
But I just don't care no more
And if this filth won't get me laid
I wouldn't do it anyway
So I'll just go get fatter
So serve me up a platter and then more!

So I'll have my lunch at the seafood store
I'll send it back if it tastes funny
My pen-pal still thinks that my diet's in gear
This 'seafood diet' - I see food then I eat it!

Take-out! Some greasy sh!t
Take-out! Then pay for it
But I go there so much they don't charge me lots of money
This 'Frequent Eater's' card's neat!

And you make it all sound so bad
I think food isn't quite that bad
'Cause the ad said "Come buy this new dish!"
And the ad said "It comes with batter and fish"
Yum yum yum yuuuum!

So I drive down to the local KFC
I'm gonna buy dinner for my whole family
I hope I got what they like to eat
'Cause if I forgot, I'm sure gonna cop it!

Take-out! Some pizza, please
Take-out! With extra cheese
And all of you on diets, I find you all so funny
Because you know it won't last this time!

Yeeeeaah! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah!
The fast food industry's gonna make food that tastes all right!

Fatty, don't you eat that Bacon Deluxe, you said
But I can't live on health food all my life...
* That's the Atkins diet, or, as Foamy the Squirrel puts it, the Fatkins diet.

It's always a good feeling when one of your favorite bands gets parodied excellently. This band hasn't been done nearly enough, and this was a GREAT addition to the make Reel Big Fish more popular fund.

Heh, heh, heh... I see where you got the idea for this parody looking at the video that starts off at a fast food joint. This was still as good as I read earlier.

(Artistry) Good matching on rhymes and the riddims, with great "joy of gluttony"-type lines that work well in a food/obesity parody...except for the KFC stanza.

(Artistry) One of your best. Particularly liked the frequent eater card.

Excellent title sub. I liked the " This 'seafood diet' - I see food then I eat it " line. All around great job.

(Artistry) It was a cute idea and I like the Atkins line (I always found that diet to be so asinine--who cares about fat or cholesterol--it's only carbs that matter?, and the guy who formed it didn't even make it through the mid years of his life because of that diet) I am a food parodist if there ever was one, food can be funny, my problem is you seemed to get a bit stale as you repeated seafood references, burger references (including bacon deluxe which is also a burger) and pizza . . . good idea but I think with a little more time, this could have been a killer parody instead of a good one buddy.

(SOTM) A bit middle-of-the-road, but not bad.

Never heard of the band. After watching the vid i know why, tedious. Anyway i'm not here to dis the fish i'm here to dish the dirt. You parody rolled along quite nicely with the original, a bloomin good effort.

Ehh... what's a reel big fish anyway? First encounter with the band, but I didn't cop out or drop out from theirs and your meny.

I'm starting to think that I'm the only person who actually likes Reel Big Fish, oh well... This was good, but there were a few problems with it (Like what Dave said, the fact that you repeated select food stuffs wasn't the greatest move) But it was still a very good parody, and one of Reel Big Fish's most epic peices.

(SOTM) A second helping.

My first trip to this parody... I get take out wayyy too often, but your parody explains the reasons why. Good rhyming and pacing. No rules - just 5s.
Guy - April 27, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM Mar08) The music video went quite well with the parody and food parodies do well since Weird Al introduced "Eat It". But for me it's just another food parody but a well done one at that.. You get a free 5 course meal at the restaurant of your choice - just find someone to foot the bill. =;-)

I enjoyed the re-read. See above.

Another technically good parody, but seems like I'm having sense of humour failure - I didn't find anything to make me laugh in this.

SOTM- Mmmm reading this made me very hungry. DKTOS, but still very good, Conqueror.

SOTM - as above, and good job on a tough song to pace.
