Song Parody Fragments:

"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)"
Better Lyrics:
If you like bean enchiladas,
and eating steak til you're well fed
If you're not into yoghurt
you can have pudding instead
If you like eating food at midnight
And through the rest of the day
Meet me at Burger King tomorrow
we'll eat and have it our way!
Original Lyrics:
If you like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga
If you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight
In the dunes of the cape
I'm the lady you've looked for
Write to me and escape
