The Lyrics

Utahns are the world's leading purchasers of Jell-o. Whether they are the leading *consumers* of Jell-o is another question entirely, for Utahns are also renowned for the construction of terrific Jell-o molds, which usually are gifted to unsuspecting members of the local congregation (ward). Also, Mormons eschew alcohol but are quite fond of a casserole popularly called "funeral potatoes." The correlation of these facts eludes scholars; whatever your position, please help yourself to Robert Lund's delectable recording of this parody (recently aired on Salt Lake's 107.5 The End): http://www.spaff.com/poesy/jello.html
Look how the ward
They brought dessert for you
They brought a salad too
It was all Jell-o

Oh bless their hearts
They heard you got the flu
So they brought all this food
It's wall-to-wall Jell-o

When I got feeling bold
I ate that brownish mold
It's apricot Jell-o

Babe please
I need a jiggly fix
Grate cheese
And lots of carrot sticks
You know
I've got a Cool Whip soul

With chunks of pineapple

I went to school
I went to lunch with you
My friends'd join us too
And we would snarf Jell-o

We used a straw
Or just our mouth and nose
Sometimes we'd overdose
And then we'd barf Jell-o

I fear
Your alkie brother brought
These here
I think they're Jell-o shots
Oh dear
My favorite flavor is lime

We could pretend they're just fine

Let's brew-ooh
A batch of Berry Blue-ooh
(etc.)

Look at the spread
The neighbors brought for you
Funeral potatoes too

Finally got a chance to listen to this (being an old fogey, I wasn't familiar with the original...I should stop listening to so much country and sports radio). Reminds me of a saying: "I won't eat anything that's green and moving." "What about Jello?" So this was actually on a radio station out in Utah? Excellent job! And the recording really adds weight to the lyrics (as always). Something (for me) to shoot for, you have some of the best recordings on this site!

Thanks, Jeff. That means a lot from you. And, yes, the morning guys on Salt Lake's big alt-rock station played it a couple of times. What a rush. (As if I needed anything else to make me obsess about writing parodies.)

Marketa: Belated thanks. If you're still paying attention, here's a shameless plug: This made it onto Robert Lund's CD as a bonus track. www.elvesgonewild.com

Thanx, Aggro. In my completely biased opinion, this is the best thing RL has done.

Didn't care for this one... didn't make me laugh or anything
Spaff.com - May 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Dominic: This was written for a probably-too-small target audience: people who (1) know the original song, (2) are familiar with Utah Mormon "culture," and (3) are willing to poke fun at both. That being the case, I was going to keep it on my web site and not submit it to Amiright, but it's one of my all-time fave Robert Lund recordings, so I had to inflict it on y'all.

That said, If you are *in* my target audience and *still* don't like it - well, then, I've got plenty of other stuff you won't like either.
Dominic L. - May 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I am 1 and 3, but not 2... As for the recording, it is good, except for the fact it skips every few seconds.
Spaff.com - May 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Well - that would be a bad thing. The skipping, that is. Do you have the CD or the MP3?
Dominic L. - May 06, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I have the MP3, so I guess that's probably the problem.
Spaff.com - June 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Yep - buy the CD. Even though it's exactly the same song, the CD version is MUCH funnier than the MP3 version.

This has also alwas been another one of my faves for you, 555! Maybe you can do one to Speed of Sound, ythere's one Coldplay song you havent paroddied yet

Local Celeb: Thanks. That's actually a song I intended to parody back when it was still new. But I guess there's not really a deadline, so maybe I still will.
Jack Wilson - October 20, 2006 - Report this comment
