"Added Rice"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I decided to pull a John Barry and write five quick parodies on the same song. Another weird experiment. Now I screwed up the parody name! Chucky, please catch these before you post and take out my two screw-ups.
Added rice, added rice
That's cause meat's too expensive
Chinese fare, everywhere
On the plate it's extensive

Put that grain into every dish
It's delish, and cheap, too
Added rice, added rice
If they know I'm in deep doo

When my customers all complain
I explain, "Is good stuff!"
Added rice, added rice
Hope they don't call my food bluff

Stir fry like my brains. I wrote these all at once in a row and it scrambled my head. Then suddenly the simple task of proofreading and posting became a challenge. Thanks for the kind remarks, I don't think I'll try this again.

You're braver than I am even to try it, Rick...

I do have 3 parodies of the same song on the site...but I certainly was not smart enough to do them all at once...=)
