Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

glad these guys were rescued in time
In the town.. where I was born
lived a fisherman... who'd been to sea
and he told... the wildest tale
of when he landed... a submarine

threw his net... up to the sun
Till it sank into... the sea of green
never heard... beneath the waves
russian seamen shouting "Set us free!"

chorus
"Were all stuck in a mini submarine!
we need some oxygine... our faces turning green
We're not Tuna you've netted a machine!
Send the British and the U S Navy to the scene!"

And the comrades... all aboard
popped the Smirnov and... began to pour
Their commander... starts to pray!
(buh puh puh bum, bum bum bum....)

we're all stuck in a mini submarine
we ran into a net like a school of sardines
props are stuck and we're outa gasoline
worst of all we're overflowing the latrine

now the crew... the world agrees
was to live... another day
but our town... still hears the tale
of the fish... that got away

chorus

Not sure about the pace here, would have to listen to the OS track before I could judge it...pretty good otherwise.

Topically funny.

Beats being stuck in a Mini Cooper.
Ravyn Rant - August 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Nicely done - and I love the idea of the tale becoming a fish story at the end of the song. I'm really glad this one had a happy ending!

What could you do with "We all live in a yellow SUV"?
Red Ant - August 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I guess I won't have to make the parody called "Russian Submarine" about this mini (though a good title for any of the other scores of Russian sub disasters). Good work here John.

thank you Paul, John, Michael, Ravyn, 2Eagle and Red Ant. Each and every comment is precious to me. 2Eagle, A yellow SUV? might hafta be a family of Enron victims. Isn't it Enronic? Don't ya think?

Not sure about the pacing either, but it was very good, had a good story-line.
Paul Robinson - August 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I'm getting ready for my vacation trip, so I don't have time tonight to check the pacing with the OS track... I will trust the other voters here...if it's a little off...well...no time to check now...5's...good job on the story...yes, glad it worked out, didn't expect that when I first heard they were trapped...Russians have not had a great record in sub safety over the years...(understatement...) ~ ~ ~

great topical title, and some really funny lines, John - 555

It is lucky they were rescued, otherwise this would be sick in the extreme... very topical and funny (I had to work out how to sing the last line of the chorus, but it does fit)

Thank you Adagio, Paul, Stuart and Phil!!! Pacing is of the utmost to me. I perform most of my songs live, and if I can't make them FLOW, they aren't funny. SEND the british AND the us NAVY to the SCENE e.g. where the caps are on the beats. I won't write it if the pacing doesn't work.

The Russian submariners got up out of the sea OK. The American astronauts got down from space OK. Now if someone could just fix everything inbetween...

"Isn't in Enronic"? If a parody with that title hasn't been done yet, somebody's gotta do it!
Tim Mayfield - August 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Great choice of OS and some very funny lines to boot. 5's
