The Lyrics

I made a tangerine flan, made it for my tea
Wasn't easy, there's no recipe I'm keeping to
I made a tangerine flan, come and share with me
I'll be back in just one minute and I'll have some with you

If you feel a gritty taste, well that just might be some sand
I forgot to wash my hands
Though the taste is rather bland - no don't stop eating
I made this tasty flan with a tin of tangerines
And some mouldy old baked beans
And some shredded magazines - eat up, no cheating

I made a tangerine flan, made it for my tea
Wasn't easy, there's no recipe I'm keeping to
I made a tangerine flan, come and share with me
I'll be back in just one minute and I'll have some with you

I know that you've not stopped to figure out exactly what
That you're eating, 'cause it's hot
And afore you eat a lot
You are wond'ring if it's snot - no it's not, it's knotty
And rather chewy
Now I'm sure that you don' care if what you find in there
Makes you say a little prayer
I don't think it's pubic hair
So don't go huey

I made a tangerine flan, made it for my tea
Wasn't easy, there's no recipe I'm keeping to
I made a tangerine flan, come and share with me
I'll be back in just one minute and I'll have some with you

You feel like throwin', vomitin' or emptyin' your tum
Please don't aim at anyone,
It's just escapin' on the run
And the loo's that way, so please don't hit the sofa
And if you hear see vague traces of what you think might be cream
It's a recurring theme
Well, a little bit extreme
Feeling much too sick to scream
No, I'm sure it isn't semen there all over

I made a tangerine flan, made it for my tea
Wasn't easy, there's no recipe I'm keeping to
I made a tangerine flan, want to share with me?
I'll be back in just one minute and I'll have some with you

Pick out the toenail clippings and the eggshell you can find
And the tangerine-y rind, and the bits of frozen peas
And the mozarella cheese, and the forty-day-old peach
The used tissues underneath, the Mask of Zorro
Then cover it with Worcester sauce and hottest chilli seeds
So that you don't taste the weeds or the long elastic bands
You say it's a taste you hate, well I reckon it tastes great
Don't think 'bout how you're gonna feel tomorrow

I made a tangerine flan, made it for my tea
Wasn't easy, there's no recipe I'm keeping to
I made a tangerine flan, want to share with me?
I'll be back in just one minute and I'll have some with you

LOL!! That is so funny and just when you think it can't get any grosser, it does

"the Mask of Zorro" ? Phil Alexander - YOU WACKY ! For the sheer, bald-faced, unmitigated madcap genius of this parody, you have indeed earned your triple-five.

I love the surreality of this one (did you see the links that I posted about The Residents in the Discussion Board's "Your Inspirations" thread?). Coulda rhymed more, hence 455.

Agrimorfee - what do you mean, could have rhymed more? It's got more rhymes in it than the original... just cause they ain't always written on the end of the lines: it's the way the lyric sheet I used as a base was written; also it's in the way Bob Dylan sings it - if you sing along with the original, you'll see what I mean.

The next time I go on a diet and want to avoid food, I'll read this!

I was gonna say I was working on exactly this and I had 6 lines that were the same, but I didn't think you'd buy it. Very funny, and scans perfect.

Mea culpa, Phil....I was going by hazy memories of the Byrd's version...let me give you 555s instead. Friends?
Phil Alexander - December 22, 2003 - Report this comment
's OK Agrimorfee... I must have sung this one through with the original a dozen times to get the accents right: you simply don't get it from reading the lyrics for this song, and it's one I want to learn to perform: I wrote it with that in mind, rather than an "amiright-only" sort of offering, which most of them are.

Rick, I'm sure I'd have believed you... ;-)

Phil, yes, I think that this 'recipe' would do the trick. 5's.

This has to be THE best song ever! When I read this song for the first time I was inspired to make this fabled tangerine flan, for I, yes I, am the Flan~Man!!! Do not fear me for I am just a humble flan, making a humble living in Candyland working from home, and in the short time I have been on this planet I have been amazed at the extent to which Flans are respected, revered, and loved by all. Therefore, I am very proud to say that on behalf of flans everywhere, Thankyou Phil Alexander for penning such a precious piece of Flannerific Goodness!!! Thankyou!!!

I'm with Mari! GROSS! And I was going to get mad at Agrimorfee before he apologized, because yours is right on! But he did, so I forgive him too.

I agree. What were your mother smoking when you made this parody? What the world is a tangerine flan? I wouldn't taste it with a 100 ft. straw.

Tea time is at 5, right? :-)

Jedi master know should: a flan a round flat pudding is - like fruity pizza on a base of sponge
