The Lyrics

I know it's late in the season for this activity, especially in the heat of summer. Gardening is strenuous work, but that's my dad's favorite hobby. He has a green thumb when it comes to planting vegetables. He ought to join a garden club! Well anyways, I also love Coldplay as well...nuff said.
(Instrumental Piano Solo)

Brought out my potting soil and spade
I'm ready to plant my first seeds
(Kneel) on the ground upon my knees
As I dig, and yank those weeds, sifting

Hope bugs won't make their nest
Spray those vermin till they're dead
And those, tomatoes shall be placed
Right where they will feel some rain, planting

(Instrumental Break)

More...corn
No...scorn

(Instrumental Break)

Clearing rubble and (some) rocks
Fertilizing garden plots, then I'll
Fence around as I please
Dogs won't mark their territory, plan to
Make room to plant berries
Water fruits and some veggies
Will my eggplants grow and thrive?
Or will they shrivel so uptight?
Plant more

(Instrumental Break)

String...beans
So...lean
Go...feed
More...seeds

(Instrumental Break)

Cukes...spawn
Spuds...spawn

I'm saving all my wares
So frugal with more care
Hope they'll be good as pears

(Ethereal Piano Solo)

Grow...on
Thrive...on

Hoe...Hoe
As I dig up the holes
Moan...Groan
As my back I had thrown
Home...Home
(More...beets)
Where my dream garden grows
Home...Grown
(To...eat)
Where my harvesting goes

(Instrumental Piano Outro)
NOTE: Last minute parody I written late at night. Lately I feel as if I'm writing new parodies only for those contests. But that's OK.

My dad really enjoys gardening to me it always seemed like too much work for not enough enjoyment since it only grew vegetables and I never liked vegetables. Still this plant parody was perfect!

"Planting" you some five votes. They're sure to grow...

Thanks lots, Matthias and Mark! :)

Matthias - Nice to hear that your dad enjoys gardening. Yeah, sometimes it can be a real pain. My father had to go through it every year. Glad you enjoyed my parody.

Mark - "Planting and harvesting" with thanks to you! 5 votes are thriving beautifully right now!

Great job as usual, and I enjoy gardening too. Got some flowers, herbs and vegetables in my small backyard area and on each side of my entry door, and they're all doing very well. Fertilizing your vote count with fives.

Plant-astic!

Earthy and unique

Having done a parody to this song before, I know that some of the song structure is tough to get around. And you got around it great. Especially liked how you handled the end and tied up things nicely.
So here's some holiday cheer for you: hoe, hoe, hoe!

Thanks lots, Andria, Flash Flood, and AFW! :)

Andria - I also love gardening as much as you do even though it may be strenuous during hot weather for me. The best part is that me and my dad would work together as he teaches me valuable lessons on having a green thumb. About those plants, veggies and botanicals in your backyard area, seems to me you got a green thumb too! You could even join a gardening club as well. Thanks for fertilizing my vote as well. Glad you enjoyed!

Flash Flood - Dug your pun! Glad you enjoyed my 'plant-tastic' parody! Hey, my plants in my gardening needs to hydrate and a 'flash flood' is what I need to hydrate all my plants! LOL! Small joke!

AFW - Earthy and unique! That's how I like my coffee, that's how I like my garden, and that's how I like my satire. I'm also glad to choose this earthy and unique OS to spoof as well. Glad you enjoyed!

Everybody, I appreciate and enjoy all your punny and entertaining comments. Once again, I'm glad to be writing again. I've got more in the works. Post them soon! ---Christie.

Thanks lots, Warren B! :)...Man, I hate it when those comments overlap and come late like that. I don't want to miss thanking anybody. Well, anyways, this is kind of an easy song, but the hardest part is that when it comes to writing parodies, it takes a lot of hard work, such as brainstorming, research, humor, rhyming, and pacing. Yeah, I try my very best to get around it great. But I kind of rushed into this a little though. Oh, and hoe, hoe, hoe to you too! Dug that holiday cheer! :)

I love gardening parodies, and this one has born funny fruit.
Christie Marie M - July 14, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks lots, John! :)...I am moved by your 'nature-al' comment! I also love gardening parodies as well.

(Artistry) It's funny when people admit they wrote things in a hurry, because usually (for me at least) it's quite clear. This was cute, but not especially hilarious.
Matthias - July 16, 2010 - Report this comment
(Artistry) One of Coldplay's better songs. I still like the idea but a few lines when read to the original song came across as clunky. I still really liked the idea behind it through
Christie Marie M - July 17, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks lots, Agri and Matt! :)

Agri - May not be hilarious, but I'm glad you enjoyed it nontheless. Sometimes when I tend to rush into a parody, it would end up as successful nonetheless, like when I rush into a term paper sometimes.

Matthias - I'm glad you enjoyed my parody, in spite of the fact that the lines came across as clunky, which you're right about. As I've mentioned to Abbott, I've been a little rusty. Thanks for v/c.
bobpiecheese - July 23, 2010 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Cute idea, pretty good execution. Some of the lines were a bit clunky (I wish there was another word for 'clunky'), and it wasn't especially hilarious, but still pretty good, and worthy of a 555.
Christie Marie M - July 24, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks lots, bobpie/T-COP! :)...Just like Matt, you're right about some of the lines a bit clunky. I found another word for 'clunky': awkward. Other words: unattractive, lack of grace and expression, lack of focus, insipid, etc. Yeah, I got to admit, this isn't necessarily one of my best parodies. But all in all, I'm glad you enjoyed nonetheless :).

(Artistry) Tell me when the tomatoes are ripe and I'll stop by with an empty bucket. Berry good!

This parody was alright CCM, you've had a number of great ones lately, and this one was more in the eh range. . .I don't know if I'd say this is insipid or lacks focus, or even clunky, it just was either rushed or the interest in writing wasn't there, but it wasn't a horrible parody which by reading your comment you'd think it was--don't short change yourself.
Christie Marie M - July 30, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks lots, Rex and BA Dave! :)

Rex - Love your comment berry much! I'll most certainly tell you about those ripe tomatoes and be sure to have an empty bucket handy! Be sure to grab lots 'cuz tomatoes are rich with lycopene and antioxidants.

Dave - The things in this satire you mentioned being rushed and lack of interest in writing is kinda true. I was also helping bobpie come up other words for 'clunky'. I'm not actually trying to short change myself in any way. I thank you for your support and v/c. Glad you enjoyed my parody.

Very good job with short lines. I commend your father. I have one food-bearing plant, and avocado tree, and I love the guacamole that comes from it, but gardening is not my favorite hobby.
Andria - August 19, 2010 - Report this comment
Reading this again, even more enjoyable than the first time. My tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash and corn are all nearing ripeness, the basil and chives are thriving, some of the flowers but not all are done blooming, and the radishes, carrots and other root crops are not yet ready to pick. Unfortunately, I won't be eligible for any of the garden clubs around here for another 25 years- they're all 55+.
Christie Marie M - August 19, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks lots, John and Andria! :)

John - Glad you enjoyed. Thanks for commending my father and your plants are very interesting. I also understand that not everyone likes gardening. It's a tough and rigorous job, especially in hot weather.

Andria - Very interesting vegetables in your garden. I wished we had our own basil and chives in our garden but our dogs kept on marking their territory on them unfortunately. Well, maybe next year. And speaking of garden clubs, I kept on talking my dad into joining a garden club, but chose not to. He's missing out on a great opportunity and will never get a chance to show off his green thumb. We harvested our tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, and bittermelons last weekend. But my tomatoes are overripe already. I also wished I had potatoes, mushrooms, and carrots as well. Nice of you to comment once again! Enjoyed it lots.
