Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

You wokked into the buffet
Like it was Em-er-il's favorite spot
But where they should've had Duck a l'Orange they
Served Gristle a l'Apricot
We were so strung out from hunger that
I guess we both forgot
This - place is known - for the Beef Teriyucky
Beef Teriyucky - and

Horse Lo Mein
You probably think that's pork in the Moo Shu
Horse Lo Mein (Horse Lo Mein!)
I'll bet you think the white stuff is tofu

Oh I came here several years ago
When I still ate cheap Chinese
Well it's sad I've become - such a germophobe
But look where the children sneeze
Once I had a won-ton disregard
For General Tso's Disease
My - better judg - ment was clouded by Sake
Clouded by Sake - and

Horse Lo Mein
There's probably truth to platters called Pu Pu
Horse Lo Mein (Horse Lo Mein!)
I'll bet you find burnt socks in the Char Shu
Char Shu
Char Shu
Charred Shoe

[Instrumental illness]

I - had to heave - there was grout in my Ahi
Snout in my Mahi - and

Horse Lo Mein
There's something fishy here with the seafood
Horse Lo Mein (Horse's mane!)
Let's bet what kind of egg's in the Egg Foo
Yung Foo
Kung Fu?

Well I hear - they bring out the Moo Goo Guy Pan
The guy's pan actually moos
And they flew these stovetops - all the way from Thailand
But call 'em Mongoloid Barbecues
I'm as dim as some that eat Dim Sum
But think this place chow maimed
Some sweet and sour cat - or the dog of a close friend
Dog of a close friend - and

Horse Lo Mein
You're probably high if pot stickers tempt you
Horse Lo Mein (Horse brain!)
I hope the "Human Beef" is just tofu

Horrrse Lo Mein
You probably think that's pork in the Char Shu...

[But remember how many hands have been on those serving spoons]

everything but the sweet and sour goat-tripe soup in this. And old Johnny D as always , plugging his songs under the best parodies. Give it a rest, Johnny.

Reminds me of the parody 'There's a cat in the kettle at the peking moon, the place where i eat every day at noon, you'd think it was beef or chicken or pork, but Garfields on my fork'...... 555 of course.

Very well, Spam authority my a$$, I have read your comment, and your point is a valid one . . . I've been doing too much self-promotion under other parodies, and I do need to give it a rest, you are correct. I asked Chucky G to delete my self-promoting comment above . . . but once that's deleted, I still want to say to Mighty Spaff that I love this parody, and I still give it Triple Delight Of Five! ;-D - May 25, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm supposed to be working right now, not playing on amiright, but I just checked these comments and wanted to clarify for Johnny Dangle that the "Spam authority" post was not from me (in case you suspected as much). I did make a crack elsewhere about Johnny having more plugs than a women's dorm, but that was just meant as good-natured ribbing. (Ribbing, as you know, enhances your pleasure.) Self-promotion rarely bothers me; y'all know I do plenty of it myself.

And as long as I'm here, thanx for your comments, Jackie & Philbo & Beef & Spam & Laudanum all three Johns (J, D, and B)!

Thanks, Spaff. I'm not totally giving up on self-promotion, but whoever "Spam authority" is, he/she/they/it has a valid point --- "plugs-in-comments" can be overdone sometimes . . . I'll consider taking a self-promotional sabbatical . . . heh heh heh . . . ;-)

This was absolutely hilarious! A great parody to start the day with. Of course, I'm already hungry again....

Incidentally, a friend who is parking lot sweeper once watched a lady from a local Chinese place taking lettuce out of the grocery store dumpster and carrying it into her restaurant kitchen.... :-O

You're a sick, sick man, Spaff. :) Don't know why, but the next sentence popped into my head as I read your parody. "Hi Ho Silver, Fillet!"

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. But now that I've made it to the bottom of the page, I'm hungry for another parody. ;)

How DO you do it? That was AWESOME! Just one question though: considering that we live in the same area, is this about a specific restaurant? If so, I'd like to avoid it at all costs...

Researching this song for parody...this is something that should be's that good.Tens wouldn't even do it justice. You should send it to the Demento show, if you haven't already. - September 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanx, Dee. Alas, Dr. D. has no use for lyrics. But if you wanna record it, I'd be happy to give you, like, 10% of the profits.
