The Lyrics

I've heard this song so many times since red nose day, that the only way to get it out of my head is to write a parody...
Sha la la lala lalala
Sha la la lala lalala
Sha la la lala lalala

When I woke up yawning
In my bed one Sunday morning
Look at what I see there
In the bed right next to me there
Quite a surprise
On my pyjama pants
And nibbling on ants

Is that a real live armadillo?
I woke to find eating my pillow
Armour-plated armadillo
He's been sleeping next to me

I've never met an armadillo
Ain't no cosmopolitan fellow
I think that it's an armadillo
That I see sleeping next to me

Sha la la lala lalala
Sha la la lala lalala
Sha la la lala lalala
And he's just sleeping next to me

Now my neck is aching
Yes, it hurts and no, I ain't faking
'Cause sleep ain't soothing
If your pillow is hard, and starts moving
By reflex, I hit it
Then I heard a crunch
Would anyone like armadillo
Sandwiches for lunch?

Look! It's a bloody armadillo
Last night that I used as a pillow
Dreaming dreams of armadillo
And guess what wakes up next to me
Please take away this armadillo
'Cause I ain't that kind of fellow
Sweet and sour armadillo
Mmmm it's just the taste for me

Sha la la lala lalala
Sha la la lala lalala
Sha la la lala lalala
Mmmm, yep - it's just the taste for me

Wow, there seems to be quite a few 'Amarillo' parodies flying around at the moment. This is one of the better ones. (Not as good as mine, though!!!) ; )

I will vote this 555, because while I DKTOS, it very funny and overall great, and looks paced quite well.

In your Zero-G parody, you mentioned the shuttle lunches. If you mean when they become food instead of missions, take a look at my Countdown Two Destruction probably DKTOS but it is "interesting" anyway. If not, then no worry.

I really wanted to write an 'Armadillo' parody of Amarillo... But I don't know anything about armadillos except they're smooth on the inside and crunchy on the outside... so thanks for putting me out of my misery :)
