The Lyrics

I'm back! Been on holidays....so I'm a bit parody rusty, so I thought I'd try something easy, like tackling the town with the longest name in the UK!So you can actually sing this song, here is how the name is pronounced: thlann vyre pooth gwinn gith go-Gherry (first part) kweern drobboth lann tuss-illy-oh goggoh gauk (second part)....write it down and have fun!
Um Dafydd Dafydd Dafydd, um Dafydd Dai!
Um Dafydd Dafydd Dafydd, um Dafydd Dai!

There's a place in Wales called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogery-
chwyrndrobllllantysiliogogogoch...quite scary!
By the time you've finished saying it, your tongue is hairy
Llanfairpwllgwyngyll..I think I need a Bloody Mary!

Um Dafydd Dafydd Dafydd, um Dafydd Dai!
Um Dafydd Dafydd Dafydd, um Dafydd Dai!

On Anglesey in Northern Wales there is a little town
Where it can take an hour just to write your address down
There's signposts longer than a bus and postmen half insane
With 58 letters it never fails to entertain!

Oh!
There's a place in Wales called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogery-
chwyrndrobllllantysiliogogogoch...quite scary!
By the time you've finished reading it, your eyes are stare-y
Llanfairpwllgwyngyll..I think I need a Bloody Mary!

Um Dafydd Dafydd Dafydd, um Dafydd Dai!
Um Dafydd Dafydd Dafydd, um Dafydd Dai!

The name translates as something 'bout a church near pool somewhere
But this linguistic travesty is far too long to bear
And full of vowels and consonants that make you spit and gob
I think it would be better if they changed the name to "Bob"...

Oh!
There's a place in Wales called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogery-
chwyrndrobllllantysiliogogogoch...quite scary!
By the time you've managed it, your face looks like Jim Carrey's
Llanfairpwllgwyngyll..and yadayada..tomandjerry!

Welcome back Kristof! Is that a real place?

Excellent! I may actually manage to learn how to pronounce this now :-)

Ash- yes, it's a real place. I seem to remember seeing on TV once that the railway station name plate is the full length of the platform :-)

Walecome back. Very clever return.

Well done, Kristoff. Good job of varying the chorus. I have a great grandmother who emigrated from Llanidloes, Wales to the United States, and I thought that "Llanidloes" was hard to pronounce.

Pacing is off in two lines (the "58 letters" and "name translates" ones). Still, your rhymes/varied choruses were clever and the remarks about local reactions were cute. 4-5-5...

Okay...hi...I just have to say that I am a pacing FANATIC. It is more important to me than any other part of the parody. I, personally, will not submit a parody unless I have sung it 75 times and I feel that the pacing is perfect.

But on the little voting deal...it doesn't say that 5=Perfect. It says that 5=Lots. So give the Saucy Aussie a break, why don't you?

Talk about nit picking...

Yes, that is a real name, in Wales. The name is Cymric. On the other hand, there is a place in Salla, Finland, named "Äteritsiputeritsipuolilauatsijänkkä". The roadside bar there, is, of course, named "Äteritsiputeritsipuolilauatsibaari". Those are the longest location and restaurant names in Finland. Curação is, after all, a piece of cake to pronounce. Triple Nickel.

Thanks for all your votes and comments, people!! Ingeborg...I have to disagree with you on pacing; each line of the verses in the original has 14 evenly paced syllables, as does my version..the "58 letters" line requires you to stress the final syllable in "letters"; but otherwise it fits perfectly..Arwen, thanks for fighting my corner babe! To all you other gorgeous people...right back atcha!

This one was just hilarious! Great job! I agree, how does anyone pronounce any of those names?? Who ever thought up that language and their dictionary, I'll never figure it out? I love Wales but come-on in can take forever to write an address! (lol)

I have a rough idea of how to pronounce Welsh, since I considered studying it. It never got off the ground, though, so I put it aside for Gaelic. I really can't help wondering what it means! The Celtic languages can be difficult, but they're beautiful!

It does not make any sence to the merry poppins song so it think you could improve it.
Phil Alexander - May 17, 2011 - Report this comment
I've just noticed.. you've left a "w" out - "drobllll" should be "drobwllll" (the "w" is a vowel sound and without it you're a syllable short) ;-)
