The Lyrics

Worcestershire - (wuss-teh-sha) NOUN: A piquant sauce of soy, vinegar, and spices.

Often incorrectly ennunicated as Wor-chester-shyer especially in rural and Appalachain areas of the US as would it most likely be emmunicated by John Fogerty of CCR if he used it in the OS of this parody.

Want dinin' fried prawns this Friday, throwin' down some country fried,
Gladly will he pay you Tuesday, he'd adore a hamburger fine.
Greasy fried attractions, stands along the road.
Like Sea Isle fare? Bella Taco there.
Benihana®, Mr. Chicken®, Baker's Square®.

Wor-cester-shire,
Goes good at Sonic® with some onion rings.
Sweet, rich and fired,
What you bite can make your pants turn green.

Putin stew's for consumption, fryin' Greece in Turkey brown.
Notion in' a weakened fueler unction, not feint he's wholly roaster Hungary bound.
He serves filet on China, he's all that Russian wry.
When they start rollin' down munchin' fuel fast.
Feed the junta, flatus stinkin', cans of gas.

Wor-cester-shire,
Adds to the music out their greasy rings.
Tweets out their sphincter,
When they bite off that fast cuisine.

------ Guitar Riff ------

Hunger Busters, Longhorns®, Fridays®, some the fattest fryin' food contrived.
Wandrin' for a fast food hide'way, might they get a Poor Boy with side?
No consumption bidein', gorged their thighs so wide.
What they throwin' down, lubein' goo fats,
Marinara, quick buzz drinkin', cancered rats.

Wor-cester-shire,
Fast food makin' manic, all that greasy thing.
Treats of desire.
Take a ride down to Dairy Queen®

Sandwich supplier,
No one eats organic down at Easy's® scene.
Wor-cester-shire,
Hone your sides eat some fresh cut greens.

Rooster grill fryer,
Flame cooked, baked juice-ic of some beefy lean.
Meat sin-ged charred fire,
Don't 'que hide on no gas machine.

------ FADE ------

No offense, Guy. But I've always heard it pronounced 'Woo-ster-sheer'. That's how Dictionary.com pronounces it. Is 'wuss-teh-sha' a regional dialect?

spicy little number...it sounds like horrible stuff to me...so i don't need to know how to pronounce it....love the cancered rats bit

Saucy. Your top notes bring to mind the Three Stooges bit in which Moe repeatedly fumbles the pronunciation of "Worcestershire," and then says, "I can't say Worcestershire," pronouncing it perfectly.

We always pronounced it worse ta sher. Agree with Alvin on the cancered rats.

Funny parody, Guy, despite that (or maybe a bit because) few if any of the culinary contexts mentioned are ones in which even a very bad cook would use Worcestershire (whose proper pronunciation, I must concur with "SOTM"above, "Woos-ter-sheer" more closely approximates, and which is not especially piquant. Sure you didn't mean to write about Tabasco?) :-)

Thanks all for the comments and letting me share my work with you. To clear it up, I did see the correct dictionary pronounciation of the word and it is as the comment states but I chose my own version of the phonetic spelling because to me that is how it sounds.. The dictiionary definition selected was the same in three different dictionaries so if they use the adjective piquant to describe then I guess it must be piquant.

Now as for the local dialect, I've lived all over the US and lived in foreign countries so the local dialect would most likely be wherever I happen to be and that for now is South Texas. It depends on which variety of locals are using the word. Cowboys will call it WAR-CHESTER-SHURE and Mexican Americans it something like wahh-hor-sheeshyra or Tex-Mex would be simply A-Juan. Don't think they'd want to bother with the word when A1 works just like Coke for almost any soft drink. Where I was raised in western Appalachia it was WOR-CHESTER-SHIRE.

Wonder why Moe didn't just say Lea & Perrins? I actually saw Moe, Larry & Curly Joe live when I was a kid but they didn't say Worcestershire. But they did show us how they did their stunts.

I am not going to weigh into the debate about pronunciation! A saucy parody!

Thanks Pip - That's all we need to add to this - a down-unda demographical flavor to the mix. DF is PC for accent.

I *really* wanted to though, hey? Heh heh
