The Lyrics

A fictional advertisement about a fictional prat, er, man professing his love for a fctional line of reheatable foods. For Mark Two of the Parody Decathlon (not convinced I'm insane yet?).
Sausage rolls and patties, microwaveable pies
Where's the frozen chips? They're thicker than wimpy fries
If it seems there's none left, I'll tell them that it's me
I'm the guy who keeps them all in business, you see?
I just yell politely 'I don't meant to be rude
Someone better be givin'
Me my Instant-Food!'

It all started when I held a barbecue tea
All my mates were over, had a nice girl wit me
Then it all exploded! I was in such a mess
All the guys had left, the reason? Bet you can guess
Then the girl said 'Baby, don't be in a bad mood
If you can't cook the real stuff
Just have Instant-Food!'

Instant ain't nutricious
Instant looks suspicious
Instant food....strangely delicious
If you can burn the salad then use Instant-Food now!

Instant food...insanely easy
Instant's lemon-squeezy!
Instant Japaneasy
If you can't cook for peanuts, then buy Instant-Food now!

A whole range of goodies, for whatever your mood
So don't just sit there drooling
Go buy Instant-Food!

If you're the guy (or gal) who's never in the mood
To cook your own damn meals, then
Buy some Instant-Food!

'Where do I find this stuff?' I may hear you all ask
Finding Instant-Food is not a huge daunting task!
Any leading supermarket has 'em in stock
So, why are you waiting? Time is wasting! Tick-tock!
If you don't, then someone else wil likely intrude
And buy the rest of what should be YOUR Instant-Food!

Ask this random expert, he'll say 'This stuff is great!'
Or just read this opinion poll, I swear it ain't fake!
Ev'rybody that I know lives of this product
And no-one that I've tried it on has said that it sucked
Well, I'm getting bored now, and please don't think I'm rude
But get off your fat ass and
Buy this Instant-Food!
When i first started writing this, all I could think of was Rimmer's line from the Red Dwarf episode DNA concerning Glenn Miller 'GO AWAY! WE DON'T WANT HIM! YOU TOOK HIM, YOU CAN KEEP THE SMEGGER!'

(dec2) whoa, bobpie, one of your best ever! - I loved it - 555 - Tick Tock (hee hee)

Super stuff.. the parody, not the food. "Instant food" as a product name is rather like something you'd see in Repoman

(decathlon) Instant 555s. This one was definitely a pacing challenge, and you nailed it.

Decathlon...Nice! I'm not a bad cook, but if this stuff could make my life easier, I'd be all about it!!

(Decathlon2) Well, Arwen, I wish I could say the same, I CAN'T COOK! (For reference point see or listen to "That's My Cooking") . . .He look, I posted an ad in the ad round! Conqueror, seriously, other than maybe Broken Back and This One Camp Trip, this IS your best to date. It was an excellent write, and should you continue to expand your horizons like this, by the time you become a veteran on this site (saying this even though I myself have not written enough to be considered a veteran except maybe in recording as an indie parodists) you could be a regular challenger for podium status in SOTM. . .I loved it. . .and you sold me since I can't cook
