Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

"kiln god" is a little figure that goes into the kiln; it's to protect the pieces from blowing up, in case there's an air bubble, just superstition-
If you throw some clay on this summer day
You'll have quite a saucer and cup display--
Vases tall and slim, colored red and blue
And some square ash-trays, polka-dotted too
So just load the kiln and then shut the lid
When they're all glazed up, you'll see how you did
If you throw some clay, if you throw some clay, if you throw some clay

But if one blows, it will turn to bits
But don't let this give you any big fits
Cause most will turn out, the "kiln god" will see
And you'll be proud of your artistry
Take them out slow, slow with your hand
Heat turns your creations out so grand
If you throw some clay, if you throw some clay, if you throw some clay

If you load the kiln, as I know you will
You must let it do its own churning
you can shape the clay, you choose the glaze
But you have to wait for the heating phase
So just tell yourself as you turn to go
you must have some patience while the fires glow
If you throw some clay, if you throw some clay, if you throw some clay

You had greenware, soon you'll have a vase
Or some little figurine with a face
To sit on your shelf with your curios
All made by your hands, the clay that you throw
Kind of a lesson, that I admire--
Good things are sometimes shaped by fire
If you throw some clay, if you throw some clay,
If you throw some clay

Oh yeah, maybe I should have said also, the term throwing just means working with, clay.

Very artistic. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has written parodies of this song. By the way, it must have been recorded by every artist under creation.
