The Lyrics

On 29 March, Merry and Pippin got together with Alvin Rhodes and Paul Robinson at the Denny's in Northridge, CA. This parody was (mostly) composed on the spot by the four of us... It contains a liberal dose of both fact and fiction....Incidentally, please visit the parody thread on the Decades Message Board for photos of the event.
Get this, we all got together
Gotta meet the hobbits for to revelate their gender
We'll ply our author's craft tonight and write it down
We wish we had the freakin' music (No one brought it 'round)

Well, Alvin and Paul we hope ya ain't yet et
Oh, cause they'll bring plates out
At D-D-Denny's where we met
Oh, but the menu was wonderful
And the silverware was fairly clean
We four eclectic coots sat in a booth
And they even had a clean latrine, oh-ho
At D-D-Denny's where we met

We sit - struggling to pace this
Dinner's divine yeah, but parody was tasteless
Waitress rolled eyes as we ruined Elton's song
Hell, it's quite apparent we're not discreet and will be tossed 'fore too long

That Merry and Pippin wouldn't grab the check
Damn, both of them raced out
Left us at Denny's with the debt
Oh man, they're cheap, but they're wonderful
Where'd they go, man? I didn't see
We went in hot pursuit to get their loot
You know we shouted something quite obscene, oh-ho
Left us at Denny's - no redress

(That Robinson fellow didn't even check
Man! There's a verse left out
Left us amending in a sweat!)
Alvin appeared Al'ce-Cooper-ful
And Paul, he seemed lean and clean
That Pippin's quite astute and Merry's cute
We got some pictures from our rockin' scene, oh-ho
At D-D-Denny's where we met

Denny's, Denny's where we met
Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's where we met
Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's where we met
Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's where we met
Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's, Denny's where we met, met, met...

Ad infinitum...

I would think it more likely that dinner was tasteless, as parody's divine... MGL, incl "Denny's with the debt", "fairly" clean silver (lucky you)... Grand Slam + Dessert = Five courses.
So much parodic power in one room... hope you all didn't get on the same plane, copter, bus, etc.

I had assumed that author name meant you wore Pampers (almost didn't read it 'cuz DK author).... Later, while doing something unrelated, it flashed to slowpoke Tortoise: Paul, alvin, Merry, Pippin...that's how ADD works... d'oh.

Excellent work, PAMP. It would be cool sometime to have an Amiright convention in Vegas, because airfare to Vegas is usually the cheapest anywhere. Not to mention the hookers, so I won't :-)) 555

Well, here I was, one of the "Fab Four" authors - either the First or Last "P" in "PAMP", waiting around for Mer & Per to finally post this...wondering if maybe they weren't quite satisfied with it for some reason....and now I see it has been posted for about 3 week nows. I guess I missed it because on April 14th I was nearing the tail end of a very long 2 1/2 week period from April 1st until the U.S. Income Tax Filing Deadline (April 17th this year)...If mandamoo hadn't posted that comment earlier today I woulld still be wondering...lol...anyway...I really enjoyed the evening...it was tons-of-fun...we hung out for well over 3 hours in that booth laughing and folling around and then writing. I really didn't want to go home, but I knew I had some long days coming up ahead of me. Oh...I also had the Talopia...it was good...and I also ended up writing a separate parody about the occasion which I was holding up until this one was posted...it also is somewhat grounded in reality but splashed and sprinkled with generous helpings of fantasy to make it fun...So I guess I can post it now...OH...Well, let me see...how to vote on this one...ah...OK...5's...lol...
