"In a Gadda da Vida"

Original Performer:

Iron Butterfly

Parody Song Title:

"Isn't Abba from Sweden?"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Isn't Abba from Sweden? Save me
From the Europop schlock they croon.
Send armadas to Sweden. . .navy.
Shell 'em till they stop singing tunes.

Their music benumbs me;
It sounds so canned
Like pseudo R&B,
It should be banned.

Repeat for 18 minutes? Did it even take you that long to write this? Short and sweet, 5's.

Sorry..... Had to dock you for dissing ABBA. 5-1-1 is all you're getting from me. Nobody talks down to ABBA -- Nobody! But if we're only judging by titles, only then will you get fives. Sorry, man.

Sweden, which gave us ABBA's music, Wasa crispbread, Ulf Samuelsson's skin, and Bjorn Borg's chances of winning the U.S. Open. All very, very thin. Are we going to see an Aerosmith parody? "Swede Emotion"?

Or better yet, a version of Coolio "Swedish Paradise" ?

I decided to give you back the fives I docked last year when I read this. Your lyrics were actually quite clever, althought I still like ABBA. Great job!
