The Lyrics

Here's a parody for all the "grillmeisters" out there. It's about a guy whose grilled chicken goes largely uneaten at his backyard BBQ, realizing that had he not misinterpreted the recipe for the Tabasco-lime marinade, people would have actually eaten what he had made.
It’s BBQ time
Stuff runs through my mind
I flip the chicken over and
I realize that this time
There’s something my guests don’t like
I’ll be grilling all night
I made a bad, bad marinade
Bad marinade, I should’ve gotten it right
A bad, bad marinade
Bad marinade, nobody wants to eat my food tonight
All the food that I made
Is uneaten; let me say
I made a bad, bad marinade
A bad, bad marinade
I won’t regret it, I don’t forget it
Just one piece of chicken
Is all I have left
My cooking’s the best; now I feel screwed
Now what the heck am I going to do?
I know too much lime juice is to blame
And that is way too much Tabasco for me
The more I cook, the taste gets worse
I shouldn’t have gone to ShopRite in Dover
If my marinade was really that bad
I should’ve thrown it out and started over
On my grill, on the plate
The steaks are good, chicken’s not that great
Tonight, here in my backyard
Is the worst barbecue I’ve ever made
It’s a bad, bad marinade
Bad marinade, I should’ve gotten it right
A bad, bad marinade
I guess you can have my burgers tonight
All the chicken I made
Didn’t get eaten – that’s a shame
I made a bad, bad marinade
Bad marinade
A bad, bad marinade
(J.C.: What did I do wrong? I guess I used too much Tabasco sauce).
PS, I'm no Selenator, but if you like pickles as much as Ms. Gomez, feel free to bring some to your next cookout.
