The Lyrics

Gotta' make this light, Orlando
Packed up the Caravan on a rainy Friday nite
Hope by Sunday morn, we'll sight, Orlando
I'm not braggin'
On this freeway, we are shaggin'
My old Dodge..
Slicin' fog in early dawn..
Guided by GPS..turned on
At our garage..

Getting closer now, Orlando
Every crossroad, every truckstop
Gives us more anxiety..
There are signs that say, Orlando
Our six kids and Maw and me..
We didn't have the green to fly..
Eat at rest stops on the way
Stuff Tuna salad and potato chips, we buy.

Disney World will be our destinate..
Can't hardly wait, Orlando..
If the money holds out, Sea World, too
We're gonna' do, Orlando
Sure the kids could use new clothes and shoes
They'll get them yet..
At the city limits, stop for air
We're almost there, Orlando

Did you see that driver's tire spin..
Sign says we're in, Orlando

Now at Disney's gate, Orlando
And I have never seen so many people,
Oh my land!
The whole world is in Orlando
We never thought that it would be
This crowded, when we planned.
Helicopters fill the skies,
We'd better tie ourselves together
And hold hands..

Standing hours in long lines, we wait,
But it's still great, Orlando
Zoomed to Magic Kingdom, without fail,
By Monorail, Orlando
And if we had not run out of cash,
We'd be there yet...
Had to sell the van and hitchhike some,
But got home from, Orlando..

Yes, had to sell the Dodge and hobo some
But we're back from, Orlando..

Plan to get the kids good jobs, and then
We'll go again, Orlando..

Gonna' get the kids some jobs, and then
We'll trip again, Orlando..

Good job here, and so true. My family made the pilgrimage to Orlando this past winter, and DAMN that place is expensive and crowded! (But an amazing experience...)

Orlando must be pretty special to forgo clothes, shoes, and a car for it. :) You did a good job on this, despite the fact that I thought it was going to be about Orlando Bloom. :) 5's

Visiting Matthias to see him in that Donald Duck suit eh? Come pick me up on the way, I'm on foot and that would be one heck of a walk, I want to see Matty in a Duck suit too! Nice tribute, for the other side of Disney see Matty's parody today--too funny to people targetted that company in the same day.

A wonderful tribute to my hometown. And no, I don't work at a theme park.

Liked the nice downhome flavour.

The positive side of my negative Disney parody today. This was great, I for one can really relate to this seeing that I work there. Props for actually naming "Magic Kingdom".

I still need to keep my '86 Chrysler . . . so it will be awhile, before I see ~MrOrlando~ . . . .

I was alerted to this parody from TT's link! Reminds me of our road trips to Orlando, since we drive there. We always go to our house in Kissimmee, Fla (near Orlando) to take care of it and spend time there. Yeah, Orlando is a very nice place and I would love to go back to Disney and Universal Studios again! Take some bright and sunny 555's!
