The Lyrics

My first parody in quite a long time. This parody is about someone stealing an innocent person's Ford Granada, the Granada owner having bad experiences with the cops, going through all kinds of crap and finally getting their Granada back. Hope you enjoy it!
Hello, Mother, hello Father
Someone stole my Ford Granada
It's not very entertaining
Waiting for the bus and hoping it doesn't start raining
I met up with Officer Spivy
We walked through poison ivy
My 8-track of Lynyrd Skynyrd
Was sitting in the weeds with all the tape out
The guy who stole it is meaner than Darth Vader
He probably has pet alligators
The cops are all a bunch of sissies
Despite the fact that one is named Ulysses
Now, I don't intend to scare you
But now I have malaria
Because I'm not too hardy
'Cause I walked through a swamp like a rice paddy
The mosquitoes, I really hate 'em
Oh, how I miss my Ford Granada
Walked thru the forest nearly got eaten by a bear
I walked a thousand miles, OK, more like four or five-o
Oh, please not one more day
Dearest Father, darling Mother
Riding the bus is such a bother
Give me a ride, you can't miss me
I see my Granada, in the parking lot-ah
Wait a minute, my keys are in it
All intact, no dam-amage
Now I've got wheels, Gee that's better
Mother, Father, kindly disregard this request


Anyone is welcome to record this parody, just as long as they mention me as the writer.

Great parody, Andria! When I get the time to do it, I might do a recording of this. I wouldn't be able to upload it for a while (thanks to friggin' dial up), but when the chance arises (I'm working on a parody CD), I'll probably record it. 555

Thanks so much, DJ Blaze! I never imagined that anyone would want to record any of my early stuff (please DON'T record the three parodies I wrote before this one, because I find them to be not very good and I am contemplating asking Chucky G to remove them for that reason), but have at it! BTW, you can record anything else I've done after this one, but in anything containing my name, substitute "DJ Blaze" for "Andria". That would work best considering the number of syllables.

It seems like I'm doing an awful lot for you... not offending, but first your song in EBA, a tribute in the works, and now I'm recording one of your parodies? I'll go out on a limb and quote Napoleon Dynamite: "So you and me are pretty much friends, right?" I also learned something today: I should listen to the old Gundam theme song while commenting. Thanks for leaving me so many comments.

You're not offending me at all. I consider you to be a great online acquaintance, and your "Napoleon Dynamite" quote will be answered "yes". You're absolutely welcome regarding the comments, and I like to see young parody-writers coming onto the scene. I was in middle school when I started writing parodies, as stated in my author profile, but I was 21 when I submitted a parody to AmIRight for the first time. It wasn't very good, since I didn't really know what I was doing as one reason, and because I was just doing a Destiny's Child OS because I thought that was what "everybody" wanted. I have improved greatly over the years, and hopefully someday I'll be at the top of the author list, even higher than Malcolm Higgins, AFW, Alvin, John Barry and all the other long-time parody contributors. I appreciate your comments, too.

DJ Blaze, I will add that "Ford Granada" meant a poor-quality ersatz luxury car that was intended to look vaguely like a Mercedes or a Rolls-Royce for Americans, Canadians and possibly people in Latin America, and a high-quality car that was almost as good as an Audi or a BMW for Europeans. Seeing as you are 15 years old, I just had to say that. Sorry for my shameless advertising of 1970s Ford products, everyone! : - )

Thanks, Andria. I think a good peak of my career would to be up there with Mark Scotti on the authors list. P.S.: I'm right next to you right now!

Thanks, DJ Blaze. I noticed that you have written and submitted to AmIRight in several months exactly as many parodies as I have in nearly eight years. I would personally like to make my way higher than Malcolm Higgins, if at all possible, in other words, be at the top of the list. P.S.: I will be away from AmIRight for the remainder of the weekend, I am house-sitting for my parents.

Pacing's a bit off, but other than that, it was a funny parody. Also, did you know that there were two different Ford cars with the Granada name? The other one was made in Europe & was a higher trim level of the Ford Consul.

Thanks, Dylan... about the pacing, keep in mind that this is one of my earlier parodies, written when just getting attention was more important than being a good writer in my eyes, and yes I did know about the European Granada. I've seen a right-hand drive hearse version on Craigslist in Seattle that I've thought about buying a couple of times.
