The Lyrics

you'd think that after a long break I'd come up with a decent parody...well, you were wrong.....
Now you roll the die and move your piece five
Next to Kentucky
Take a Chance card please
If you move 8 spaces up
Gonna land in jail
If you don't roll doubles fast,
gotta pay the bail

If you're out of cash, then you're gonna finish last
Declare bankruptcy,
Take a Chance Card please
Gonna buy all of the reds, gonna build hotels
If you land on them you're set
for debt payers hell

Take a Chance Card Please
(I hope it gives me more money)
Take a Chance Card Please

We can go hoping, get in my top hat
Take a trip to the Boardwalk
Go and do some driving, down to Free Parking, win money that was lost
Cause you know I'm rich
I own all of the railroads, and the Utilities I hold
More Money
We can walk down to Park Place, and no rent fees will we face
Cause I own it all
I can never fall


Now you roll the die and move your piece five
Next to Tennessee
Take a Chance card please
If you get that dreaded card
Gonna land in jail
Now you don't pass Go at all,
gotta pay the bail

If you don't move fast, then you're gonna pay the Tax
Hope it's Luxury,
Take a Chance Card please
Gonna pay seventy-five, now I roll again
Now you move your piece spots six
Taxes never end

Take a Chance Card please
(Come on, Pay for Housing Repairs?)
Take a Chance Card please

Oh you can take your time Mister, I'm in no hurry, know I'm gonna win
Don't go any faster, I have no worries, Soon it will be the end
Just give me it now
You know that's not enough, You owe me fifty bucks
My Money
You know where you're gonna land, Just put the money in my hand
Cause I own it all
No safe spots to go

Now you roll the die and move your piece five
Next to Kentucky
Take a Chance card please
If you move 8 spaces up
Gonna land in jail
If you don't roll doubles fast,
gotta pay the bail

If you're out of cash, then you're gonna finish last
Declare bankruptcy,
Take a Chance Card please
Gonna buy all of the reds, gonna build hotels
If you land on them you're set
for debt payers hell
(Take a Chance, Take a Chance, Take a Chance Card please)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Next to Kentucky
Take a Chance Card Please
Gonna beat you at this game, Mister can't you see
It is only you to blame, Take a Chance Card Please
(Take a Chance, Take A Chance, Take a Chance Card please)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa ba-ba
You cannot beat me
Take a Chance Card Please

Nice! Now amiright's almost got enough material for a Monopoly Greatest Hits album. And I still think the term "Community Chest" has always been a parody waiting to happen.
Billy Florio - September 05, 2003 - Report this comment
I was trying to think of one for a Community Chest parody, but I couldnt come up with anything.....anyway, thanks everyone!

Yeah...it was good.

The original was begging for a Monopoly-themed parody; your pacing and rhymes need some minor work, but it's pretty darn good otherwise. 4-5-5 from me!

This year is Monopoly's 70th Anniversary! (Parker Brothers patented the game in 1935.)
Christie Marie M - November 09, 2008 - Report this comment
I love Monopoly so much! I have the Simpsons, Disney, and Original editions at home. I want to get the Here and Now version too. I wanna play Monopoly now. Chance Card: Won for "Best Parody" contest, collect $555 dollars. (Sorry I missed this one).
