The Lyrics

Youtube it here In honor of the 32oz "Melbourne" porterhouse I was challenged to eat while on vacation.
Background vocals:
(Forlorn for your Melbourne, and so Outback I need you)
(Forlorn for your Melbourne, and so Outback I need you)
(Forlorn)
(Melbourne)
(Forlorn)
(Melbourne)

Ooh, Chef, you know I need mo', uh-huh
What your cookin', Oz, has done to me
Like that big ol' longhorn hangin' on a wall, uh-huh
You’re a lovely sight, juicy sight to see, mmm, hmm

The way my knife cuts your Fillet
Mignon off the bone
32 ounces, I get weak in my knees
I’m so thankful I'm alone

I'm forlorn for your Melbourne, yeah
How it sizzles, my will fizzles, yeah, yeah
A1? I will use none, thanks
Your red meat (can't wait to eat)

They all say that I’m a fool, uh-huh
For eatin' you, for chewin' you this way
But sure as I am, I don’t give a damn
About what customers, other diners say

Other cooks try to imitate you
With some other steaks, uh-huh
But you're the only restaurant
Whose got it, what it takes

Forlorn yeah, for your Melbourne, yeah (Uh-huh), yeah (Uh-huh)
I've sworn, Oohh, on my first-born, yeah
Forlorn for your Melbourne, yeah (Ooh)

(Forlorn for your Melbourne, and so Outback I need you)
(Melbourne)

I'm forlorn for your Melbourne, oohh
Lord I'm torn, 'taters or corn, oohh
Porterhouse, I will not douse, oohh

Forlorn for your Melbourne
Oohh oww, oooh oww
I'm stuffed
I'm full, yeah
Oww oww oww, yeah
It's too much, no desert, yeah
Next time, I'll get salad
OOWW

Forlorn for your Melbourne, yeah, yeah
Stubborn, I was forewarned, yeah, yeah
Forlorn for your Melbourne, yeah, yeah

(Forlorn for your Melbourne, yeah, yeah)

(Forlorn for your Melbourne, yeah, yeah) ::repeats until end::

I love the Outback, too! Their pork chops are great ! But now that it is the only American place to eat, it is always so jammed . . . thanks for this is a zany parody, I love you, Outbacker . . . ~from dieFlatBacker !

(Amiright idol/Artistry)) Thanks for joining us, Wolverine! i',m killing 2 birds with 1 commentary, to coin a phrase. 2 big issues here: 1 is too much of the original words still in the parody; 2 is that it isn't terribly funny, especially for such a long and minimalistic tune like this. The first three stanzas were great, though. I've said before that no song (with one exception irrelevant here) is parody proof...but that does't mean that good parodies can be produced by any song. Train yourself with more songs that have typical amounts of verses and choruses.

I would say "I loved your meat", but I'm afraid that you might take that the wrong way. I agree with Agrimorfee that it could have used a few more gut bursting funny lines, but it was still a pretty solid contender into this competition.

(Artistry) Outback should make a commercial out of this parody.

(AmIRight Idol) This one Wolverine was--well--I can't say that I feel it was your best effort. Your pacing was solid, but as I said on Tenacious Lee's parody, too much of the OS takes away from the "you" quality. The other thing I want to point out is that a personal experience is another one of those narrow scope ideas that you really probably had to be there to find funny, because if not--this one was more a tribute to a large steak. What I will remind you is that is precisely why we have this first non-elimination round though so you guys can get an idea of what we are looking for. Agri was OTM also with his comment about no song being parody proof (even his Nina Hagen exception in my opinion-get me the song buddy--I'll prove that wrong:)) but doesn't necessarily make for easy or great parody material. .

(Idol) The parody topic was great and the variations in the chorus maintained the rhyme scheme. From a comedy angle, the biggest problem is that TOS is about 4 minutes too long: there's just not enough funny to sustain an 8+ minute song. The (somewhat) simple solution to that is to edit a backing track to be shorter - I did that with "Tased and Confused": the humor-killing three minute long solo and ad-libbed lyrics were cut out of the middle of the backing track, resulting in a manageable length parody. I wasn't familiar with Outback's "Melbourne" steak as I usually get ribs, but sneaking the intro explanation into a karaoke recording would be easy enough. Overall, well done (no pun intended). From a recording standpoint, in the future I'd try to avoid songs that have very long intros, tons of outro lyrics or long solos in the middle: about the only way to improve upon parts like those is to simply remove them.

(Artistry) Like others have said, could've used some more of the funny. Tightly paced, though.

The pacing was good. I liked "Lord I'm torn, 'taters or corn,". Could have used a little more story. Good job.
